HIV risk and ARS Symptoms?
      #272730 - 06/25/13 06:05 PM

Need some help please! 13 days ago I had sex with a sex worker. It was protected for the anal part(insertive) and unprotected for the oral portion. Last for 10 mins, I don't think the condom broke apart as I didn't see any rips or holes in it. Now I feel my neck being a bit tighter than usual(perhaps a swollen lymph node) by the Adam's Apple, stomach is constantly roaring and having the need to use the restroom(not watery, but bits and pieces. One day it was dark), and now I am spitting out white foamy saliva. I am taking Xanax so maybe these are from the pill but what are my risks of being infected? Took a RNA PCR on Friday and I'm still waiting on the results...

You had protected sex. While the CDC places the risk of transmission from insertive oral with a positive partner, the haven't been any confirmed cases of transmission in this way in the 30 or so years that HIV has been around.

It's highly unlikely that you will have a positive test result.
