HIV transmission through receiving oral sex

Question: 

hi,

before 3 weeks i had received oral sex from a prostitute i don't know if she had hiv,but after this 3 week i have stomach pain,and sore throat.
Can you please help me with that.

Answer: 

Hello,

Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about acquiring HIV from receiving oral sex. From the information given, this scenario is determined to be negligible risk (there are no evidence or no documented cases of transmission). The scenario mentioned above does not meet the three components of the transmission equation. HIV symptoms can be non-specific and imitate other viral infections such as the flu.

Recommendation: Refer to your physician for more personalised answers.
