oral encounter of the worst kind
      #118954 - 12/02/04 08:52 PM

I am not sure what to ask here so here goes...

I had oral sex roughly 40+ days ago with an unkown man of which I went down for about 2 minutes and did encounter ejaculate in my mouth. I did not swallow.

A week ago I came down with the "flu like symptoms" on a Monday which began with terrible headaches and dementia like state at night when trying to sleep - just had very un-intelligable dreams and it was a difficult 2 days - on Tuesday I then had terrible coughing which got worse by friday although headaches and general feverish feeling were gone by Thursday...the cough got so bad i went to hospital on friday AM and got nrcotic cough syrup and antibiotic for potential bacterial infection Sunday the cough was much better and was pretty much out of it by Monday of following week. I still have been a little tired and its Thursday of the following week...

Now someone tell me IS THIS ARS? And if not was this just the FLU?

Thanks so much...

Oral sex has a lower risk of spreading HIV which means although not high as vaginal sex or anal sex, it does still carry a risk. there has only been a few cases of it being spread this way..example..bad bleeding gums, cut in the mouth can make the risk higher. I don't want to scare you, but just to be sure, i would have a test at 6 weeks and one at 3 months to make sure, but 6 weeks is very promising.. As for the symptoms, you can not diagnose yourself by symptoms..all ex-worried wells can tell you, after their unprotected sex encounter, they came down with symptoms and had the test and it was just a common cold or sinus infection. so just relax..its not very common to be spread this was but go ahead and have the test for a piece of mind. Good luck and stay safe.- Jess

symptoms mean nothing - if you sit up all night petrified that you have HIV symptioms, guess what? You'll probably develop symptoms. but symptoms mean nothing.

oral sex w/swallowing carries a very low risk of HIV (estimates from a recent study are around 1/2500, or .04%). HIV is transmitted via vaginal and anal intercourse (penis into vagina or anus) and dirty needles; you should be fine.

test if you want at 6 weeks and put this to bed.
