Too early too tell?
      04/07/13 06:57 PM

15 days ago I had unprotected vaginal and anal sex. I have HSV2 so I know Im at higher risk for contracting HIV. 10 days after the encounter I got a sore throat and swollen glands. I went to the doctor and was diagnosed with strep. The test almost looked negative, but she said there was enough of an indicator on the strep test for a positive diagnosis. I have been on antibiotics for 72 hours and now have a yeast infection and what appears to be thrush, though Im not certain. I am doubting my doctors diagnosis and speculating that this is all too coincidental. While my symptoms can be explained away by strep and antibiotics I am skeptical. My doc also said 10 days was too early to be having early signs of HIV. Is that true? I know the only way to know for sure is to get tested, but 3 months is a long time to wait with this kind of anxiety. Thank you.
