Several high-risk sessions in the past few months.
Now, the 4th day of fever.... no cough or respiratory symptoms.. just fever and body aches.

How do you expect to know you are? What was your exposure?

So get tested 3 months after your last possible exposure. It's the only way to determine your status.

Agree that the only way to know is to get tested - I was positive about 1 month after ARS symptoms started, so 7 weeks after exposure. If you were to go to the doctor now, they might do a CBC to check for infection (due to fever), and probably your white blood count would be quite low, and possibly elevated liver enzymes. How is your appetite, nausea, etc.? Energy level? You can't diagnose based on symptoms alone, but it does give you a pretty good idea.

Please....go get tested in a few weeks. Until then, and even after then, practice SAFE SEX. If you are seroconverting, then your viral load is EXTREMELY high right now, and you are highly contagious.

I'm hardly one to try and calm someone when they are going thru this, I have had issues with this for a long time. I will tell you that many things can cause you to get the symptoms you describe shortly after exposure ebv,mono,herpes that may cause no sores etc. I have had lots of problems for sometime now but you must not think the worst and try not to get all upset and see if they go away. Like I said, I have not been able to let this go due to symptoms that will not go away so chill out and just see if they pass and get your test taken.
