Hi there and thanks for using the AIDS Vancouver online helpline as your source of HIV/AIDS related information.
Please note that the nausea is a nonspecific symptom that has a wide range of causes. Anxiety related to your unknown HIV status might be a possible cause if you are experiencing significant stress regarding your encounter. We recommend regular STI (including HIV) testing for all individuals who are sexually active, for your safety and the safety of your partners. Testing may help to give closure regarding this experience, and testing at 3 months post exposure is recommended for conclusive results. In addition, you may wish to discuss you nausea with a doctor is you find that it is interfering with your daily life.
I hope this helped to answer your questions and please do not hesitate to ask if you have any further questions.
Cheers,
Jonathan
