Hi!

I had sex with a man (i am man too). He used condom in anal sex, we did not use condom in oral sex. I didn't have sperm on my mouth. I have had HIV test in 2,3 and 5 weeks (negative). Going to test again in next week then it is the 7 week. First in one week my throat was hurt and behind my tongue there was white spots. In three weeks lab test showed that i have streptococcus pyogenes in my mouth. But white spots didn't go away.

This is gettin heave for my mind. I dont speak very good english but i hope u could say something to this. Thank you

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

It seems that you are concerned about symptoms you are having after a sex activity and you think it might be related to HIV. We are glad to provide some information.

Having protected sex is considered a Negligible Risk activity. That means that although there is an exchange of body fluids there has never been a conformed case of transmission by this way. Receiving oral sex is also considered a negligible risk activity.

However the only way you can determine your HIV status is by being tested. Using symptoms can be misleading as they may be caused by a condition that is not related to HIV. If you want to know your status we encourage you to get tested. At AIDS Vancouver we encourage people to use HIV testing as a regular health maintenance routine. In any case the condition that was diagnosed by the lab is a bacterial infection. This has nothing to do with HIV and is not an indicator of your status. Getting tested at 7 weeks will give you a good indication of your status. Getting tested at 12 weeks or after will give you conclusive results.

Additional information about risk, transmission and testing can be obtained from the AIDS Vancouver website and online postings as well as [CATIE](http://www.catie.ca/en/pif/fall-2011/exposure-infection-biology-hiv-transmission)

If you have any further questions feel free to contact us again.
