Hello there,

Thanks for using the AIDS Vancouver Helpline site as your source of information.

In terms of the symptoms you are describing, there are no clinical symptoms associated with HIV/AIDS; i.e. symptoms are never consistent between individuals. Once again, none of the symptoms you described are related to HIV infection.

In regards to testing, WHO's recommendations consider test to be all conclusive at 3 month post exposure. Depending on the test, if you did a 4th generation HIV test, the results will be highly accurate at 6 weeks indeed.

Receiving oral sex is considered a negligible risk with regards to HIV transmission. There has never been a confirmed case of HIV transmission in this manner, i.e. from receiving a blowjob.

Our minds work in a strange way. Several of the symptoms you have described could be simply the end result of you stressing out and being anxious about this situation. However, if you continue to experience these symptoms, I do suggest that you reach out to a medical professional, as it may be the result of another situation.

If you have further questions, feel free to reach out to us again.

In health,

Moe, AIDS Vancouver Helpline Volunteer.
