I had unprotected sex with another male approximately 3 moths ago. I do not know if he is infected or not. A week ago, I started feeling sick; I had a sore throat. I went to the doctor and he said my left tonsil was very swollen and that it might be an abscess, so I started taking antibiotics and after 4 days it got much, much better. I have no pain now.
The doctor changed one of the antibiotics, and ever since the first time I took the first pill I felt sick. At night, 3 hours (approximately) after taking the second pill, my face started to itch and the rash lasted for about 5-10 minutes.
I've been reading a lot about HIV and I read that the most common symptoms include: rash and sore throat. I know I might be overreacting, but I am scared I could actually have contracted HIV.
Can it be a possibility or is it just my nerves?
I rubbed my penis on a girls vagina who was having periods. The maximum time was a few minutes. There was no intercourse. Both of us are virgins with no prior history of HIV. How much risk is there?

Hi. I seriously need help right now. I was diagnosed with Periodontal disease (Gum Problem) and from that moment i stopped doing Blowjob to someone without condom. However there are times when i kissed a guy but normally its just smooching (without tongue, normally its lip to lip but on a numerous level). I have experience a lot of oral sex wherein i am the insertive partner, if sometimes i do blowjob i make sure they are wearing condom. I never do anal fun (NEVER) because i am very much aware that it has a high risk of acquring the virus. even with condom because i normally get paranoid very easily.
One day i met this guy from gay app. I had a swollen gums at the back of my molar. I kissed him and again without tongue because i know that i have a swollen gums and i dont know if i have cuts in my mouth. He gave me a blowjob without protection and he just jerked off until finish. I just suck his nipples to also help him cum faster. After awhile he admitted he is HIV positive. And now im slowly dying with fear and anxiety, i couldnt sleep or eat. please help me i need giudance.
1. Do i need testing with this incident?
2. With so many insertive oral sex that i did, did i put my self on risk?
3. Could i get infected with if we only did smooching without tongue? Could my gum disease be a factor even if its just lip to lip on a numerous level?
Please help me.....

I have anal a month before with my friend. He tends to insert his penis in my anal but never inserted. He only rubbed his penis on my opening of anal. Is there any chance of getting infected of HIV
I'm a 28 male who lives in a low risk HIV area.
About a year ago I had a HIV test done (I needed it for surgery) and I was told that the test result was "inconclusive". I didn't know much about HIV and HIV testing at the time and obviously I was worried. After asking a lot of questions the doctor told me that the administered test (ELISA) was reactive to the HIV antibodies and that we needed to do more tests to confirm the result. We took 2 more blood samples and ran 2 more tests (Western Blot and PCR). Fortunately both tests came back negative (no bands present and no proviral DNA was detected) which resulted in a HIV negative status.
One week ago I had another ELISA done along with standard STD tests (STD tests came back negative). This time the result also came back as "reactive" and we had to take more blood samples for Western Blot and PCR (still waiting for the results).
During the year between the tests I only had sex (vaginal, some of it unprotected) with one woman who was my girlfriend at the time and who as far as I know is HIV negative. Our last sexual encounter was 2 months ago.
Is it unheard-of for someone to be "reactive" to 2 separate ELISA tests 2 year apart? If so, and my results comeback again negative (fingers crossed) then what are my options for future testing? As you may imagine this is very stressful for me and for if some reason ELISA is sensitive to my blood are there any other tests that can be used for routine screenings?
I had unprotected sex with someone I later realized was hardcore heroine addict. He had a wristband on at the time telling me an elaborate story. He was actually covering all of his track marks and sores. After realizing this, I borrowed anti viral medication. Y the name of acyclovir. I've been taking 800mg a day for the past week after having intercourse with him. He did not cum inside me, but there could have been pre ejaculation that entered inside me. I also happened to be menstuarating and I am curious if that will have any effect on transmission. I am also curious if the acyclovir will help prevent transmission or is it too late?
I have read some recent post and really appreciate volunteer people who take their time and help others. I'm one of them and I'm actually MUCH MUCH MORE TERRIFIED terrified right now as I'm feeling MUCH BETTER (almost as same old me) from last few days which turned out to be just a miracle.
About one and half month ago, I have had receptive unprotected anal sex. I had some bleeding hemorrhoids. Everything was fine for two to three weeks and things went downhill for me. I've FELT (not inflating any bit of it) possibly symptoms that happens with ARS.. had a mid grade burning fever, severe fatigue, night sweats, 15 sudden red blotches, sores in mouth, rash on face and chest area, total brain fog, swollen lymph not under armpit, anemia... I can go on an on ). It was terrible two to four weeks and now suddenly I feel great with clear mind.
-> Highest Risk of Anal UNPROTECTED receptive sex
-> 2-4 weeks of severe ARS symptoms
-> Worst Symptoms suddenly went away and for now I'm just feeling awesome again, which worries me with clear mind/body as few weeks ago it worried me with unclear mind/body :-(
I had following test done
1) 1 week 4th gen ab/ag duo -ve
2) 4 1/2 week 4th gen ab/ag duo -ve
3) 5 1/2 week 4th gen ab/ag duo -ve
4) 5 1/2 week RNA TMA non-reactive...
I understand that by 4 week 95% will test positive in 4th gen. Worried that I might be in 5% who developes ab/ag after that time so I got RNA TMA done ...Does that give me some consolation ?
