High risk

I had sex with a girl unknown status, one night 4 times, but every time used a new condom, and at every trip checked it was not broken. after exposure, at 7 day i went to an exhibition where thousands of people visit every day.at 11th and 12th day start dry cough was not sure there is fever or not, doctor give me amoxicillin, next day (13) at noon i feel cold, i checked my temperature it was 38.2 from oral, I bought parastomal and took at noon the fever goes down at 37.4, but at evening again fever 38.2,i took again at night it goes drop at 37.3, then morning at day 14th there was again fever 38.0 and there was 2 ulcer in my throat painful with white color, i took amoxicillin, and parastomal at 14th day fever goes down, at 37.5 at noon and evening i took medicine again, and at 15th day fever goes away, and at 16th day ulcer goes away, i used one chinese medicine for ulceraway, There are no rashes, was little pain in body, and head, (maybe cause of cold because i stayed whole day outside, or maybe viral infection) ...
have fever 3 days, 2nd day ulcer in throat, what do you think is this casue of ARSsysmptom ? or could be common cold virus? I know it not possible to get idea about HIV from symptoms, but just want know your expert opinion, does it look like ARS or common cold?

Stupid Mistake

I was manic for a while and got involved with some dom/sub play with another guy in my area. He collected some cum in a container about 3 days before I came over and kept it in the fridge. I wound up being convinced to swallow it. We then had protected sex.

My question is would the refrigerated cum be a large risk factor? I tested with the INSTI test 32 days post exposure and it was non reactive. My only concern is that on one side of my neck I can now feel my lymph node which is about the size of a pea, but not painful. Thanks for any help you can give.

I'm losing sleep

Dear Team,

I just wanted to thank you guys for the awesome work you guys are doing around the world, helping people such as myself. I had a question. I had a kissing incident with a little biting last year, and I'm sure there was no blood involved. I went to a doctor who didn't advise PEP. The girl that I kissed was having symptoms consistent with ARS. I don't know if she was positive or not but all the sources I have read like avert.org, CDC say that saliva is not implicated in the transmission of HIV. However, I also read that when a person is having ARS during the acute stage, viral load is at it's peak.

1. Does this apply to the viral load in blood or saliva as well?
2. Is saliva infectious when a person is having ARS symptoms or it is never infectious regardless?

Please help me I have been losing some sleep over this incident

Yours sincerely,

Worried

HIV transmission possible

I had a protected sex with a CSW whom I think to be hiv positive,First she gave me unprotected oral sex just for a half minunte and then we had a protected vaginal sex.My major concern is about the cut that was made two hours before the intercourse while shaving at the base of the penis.I think that during sex condom had not covered this cut and it might came in contact with vaginal fluids which might have caused transmission.
My question is that is hiv transmission possible through this cut which is not bleeding at a time of sex???
Symptoms
I got high fever and extreme fatigue on the second day of sex which remained for one and half week which was not treated even on taking antibiotics every day.After fever was cured I developed white tongue and mouth ulcers which is still present in third week.I am really stressed and anxious after that incident as it was my first time to do such thing.

Quantity of HIV transmitted affect window period?

Dear Team- Thank you for taking the time to answer this.
I had protected vaginal sex, the condom broke right in the beginning and he pulled out immediately. I was tested at 6 weeks, 3 months and 4 months with 4th generation HIV test all coming back negative. My concern is I had two vaginal yeast infections about 7 weeks after and then again about 13 weeks after. I also noticed about 15 weeks after my right lymph node on my neck is swollen.
My questions:
1- Are my tests conclusive or do I need to retest at 6 months
2- Does the quantity of HIV transmitted affect the window period. Meaning if only a small amount of HIV was transmitted would it take longer for my body to respond to it thus lengthening the window period?
Thank you!

Too much Worried

I had a protected sex with a sex worker whom I think to be hiv positive, I have used the condom but there was small cut at the base of the penis which was made two hours before while shaving which was bleeding at a time when it was made, and stopped within a few seconds. Although I have used the condom but I think It did not covered the cut which might have exposed to the vaginal fluids.Cut was made two hours ago and is not bleeding.After second day of sex I had a high fever with chronic fatigue which lasted less than two weeks than after two weeks I am suffering from white coated tongue with ulcers in mouth but no fever, I think my lymph node had started swelling and will get enlarged by the end of the week.
What is my risk of contracting hiv through small non bleeding cut which has been exposed to vaginal fluids.

Syphilis Diagnosis

3 Months ago i started having a reddish rash (no warts or sores) on my face, over the cheeks area. I went to the doctor and he suggested getting some exams, i got tested for HIV, Chlamydia and Syphilis and the last one came out positive (1:32)

After the exams i got 3 shots of penicillin with the last one being applied by January 2nd. After that i haven't had any follow up exams until last week that i took the VDRL and it came out (1:32) reactive again.

Does that mean the penicillin didn't work?

PS: i haven't had any sexual activity in the past 4 months
