I am usually so healthy, and never get sick. But after having about 3 min of unprotected vaginal and oral sex with a female I know, I began experiencing foreign symptoms. Afterwards, she claimed that she never uses condoms after intercourse. I was floored, and I could not believe it. The sex was unwanted on my part, and I did not ejaculate in her.

Hello and thanks for reaching out to the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.

It seems you are concerned about HIV infection after an unprotected sex activity. we are glad to provide some information.

We do not determine the HIV status of an individual using symptoms because some symptoms are caused by other viral infections that are not related to HIV. The only way to determine HIV status is by getting an HIV test.

Engaging in unprotected vaginal sex is regarded as a High Risk activity. This means that this activity has been repeatedly associated with HIV infections. We recommend that you get HIV tested. You can either discuss with your doctor or find an HIV test centre close to you. If you are in Canada you can use [CATIE](https://hiv411.ca/) to find a test center and if you are outside Canada you can use[ Aids Map e-atlas](http://www.aidsmap.com/e-atlas) to locate a test center close to you.

The Aids Vancouver Helpline Online forum has postings that are related to your question that you can read for additional information. If you have any further questions feel free to contact us again.

Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.

In health
