ARS-confused
      #40892 - 09/27/02 10:53 AM

i've posted before, but have never received clear feedback on ARS symptoms(febrile illness compared to flu or mono). 6 days after insertive unprotected sex, encountered the stomach flu(24-hour bug). extreme vomitting, chills and diarrhea for 6 hours, but pretty much fine the next day. Are these symptoms indicative of ARS, or most likely a stomach flu? Partner firmly stated she has been tested and is negative. thank you for any feedback. the sickness was short, but severe, not just a case of bad nerves. i would appreciate any feedback. it's great how supportive and informative people are here. good luck to all

Does not sound anything like ARS. Everyone should be tested, however.

Doesn't sound like ARS at all - everything I've read says if you do have any symptoms, which 60-90% of people do, then it is usually 2-4 weeks after exposure and it usually lasts 1-2 weeks.

Hope this helps and be safe.

Not ARS in my opinion.
