Will you help me please please

Mar 29, 2014

Hi .. I would like to consult you about my exposure i had a protective sex with sex worker one month ago and we had a mouth to mouth kissing like a 20 seconds .. While that time i had a minimal bleeding on my gum and that's what's scaring me .. After one week i started to have a burning micturation , at this time i related this issue to the exposure i had with the sex worker .. Here all the story begins with the panic attacks and the anxiety & the obsessions thoughts .. I did some tests , they are as following : *At one week i had antibody test negative * 2 weeks ( day 7 ) later ( day 14 ) i had Elisa test : negative & Quantitative pcr : non-detectable <50ml / cupis *at day 30 i had a rapid test by finger prick : negative *at day 39 combo negative *at day 44 combo negative now i am totally confused really not knowing what should i do , i have sore throat since 5 week until now not relieved by medications , is that a symptom ? should i do any more test ? Are these tests good enough ?

Hi there,

Since you used a condom you protected yourself from HIV. I do not think you need to do any further testing. A burning sensation while urinating can indicate the presence of an STD such as Chlamydia or Gonorrhea, which can be transmitted via oral sex. A full panel of STD testing will rule out the presence of a sexually transmitted disease.

If your tests come back negative, and the symptoms are still present I would suggest a visit to the doctor to determine what could be causing them.

In health,
