32yr single male

Question: 

Sir, I had visited a hooker on 22nd december 2018. I had unprotected handjob from her. She applied lotion and put condom and gave blowjob for sometime. I had sucked her nipples for sometime and twice touched her vagina from outside and didn't finger inside. We didn't take shower before the foreplay but had shower after the foreplay. From next day onwards I persistent felt chills, cold sores, rashes on thighs, cold fever, nausea, frequent urination,headache, fatigue. After 2 weeks I had pain in the lower jaw and mouth ulcers with many tiny sores on inside cheeks (both sides). I'm really scared that I might have contracted STD/STI. Please tell me what are my chances of getting HIV from this act and symptoms.

Answer: 

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of acquiring HIV from receiving oral sex. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be Negligible Risk . All of the practices assigned to this risk level present a potential for HIV transmission because they do involve the exchange of body fluids. However, there are no evidence or no documented cases of transmission.

In order to contract HIV the following conditions must be met: There must be HIV present in a bodily fluid. The five bodily fluids that carry the HIV virus include: blood, semen (including pre-ejaculate), vaginal fluids, breast milk, and rectal secretions. The bodily fluid containing HIV must have direct access to the bloodstream. This can be through cuts, tears, rips, mucous membranes, open sores, or needles. Transmission occurs through a risky activity in which the first two conditions are met. For example: condom less sex, sharing needles, unsafe tattoos or piercings, vertical transmission–from mother to child (in utero, during delivery, breastfeeding). The above scenario does not meet the three components of the transmission equation because there was no direct access of the fluid to the bloodstream and no high risk activity was involved.

HIV symptoms mirror other viral infections (flu etc..) or can be due or explained by other things, testing is really the only way to know. The symptoms that you are experiencing could be explained due to other infections or causes.

Recommendation: There are no evidence or no documented cases of transmission refer to Physician for more personalized answers.
