Oral Sex Sanity Check
      #25555 - 12/14/01 08:24 PM

I received unprotected oral sex from someone with unknown status. Two days after the event, I got a faint tickle in my throat (not normal) that has not gone away in two weeks. Now, 2.5 weeks after the event, I am having GI issues and have a wicked sinus headache that won't go away. Two points to consider, i just took a brutal red-eye plane flight across the country three days ago and have been prone to chronic sinusitis as a result of all the flying I do. Two, everyone around me is sick right now and was actually throwing up last night. Although I believe I know the answer, I cannot let go of the fact that somehow I got hiv. Any comments would be most appreciated. Thanks.

I was worried about this too, but was negative and was told I would be before the test. The person would have to have had blood in their mouth, be positive, you have a cut on your genitals, and even then the risk is still very very low. I had symptoms too, and NOW everyone has a bad sinus cold, me and wife included.

Go get tested to put your mind at ease, not that you need to. And ignore the jerks here. Stick with the advice from Jackie, Shane and Worried.
