Hi there,
I had unprotected oral sex (insertive) 2 months ago (20th Sep) from a thai hostess. Tested for HIV after 1 month(negative) and again at 2 months(negative). However had white blood cells traced in my urine test. And i discovered swollen lymph nodes on my right side of the inguinal groin. The lymph nodes were also confirmed by my doctor, however he said they were considered small ( size of baked beans). Do I have to worry still about HIV infection? Considering that i still have 1 swollen lymph node under my left jaw and stiff neck symptoms (about 1 month ago) and also the recently discovered swollen groin lymph nodes that i found about a week ago. Or did i acquire other STDs? Appreciate your reply thanks!

Hello

Thank you for contacting AIDS Vancouver as your source for HIV/AIDS related information.

As we are based in Vancouver, we follow the BC CDC (Centre for Disease Control) guidelines which recommend HIV testing be done 3 months/ 12 weeks post risk exposure for CONCLUSIVE results. As your test results at 2 months came back negative, this is a good indication of your health status. Also, please continue working with your physician regarding your physical ailments for proper follow up and treatment. There are no defined HIV symptoms. In addition, having unprotected oral sex places you at risk for sexually transmitted infections (STI) such as herpes, gonorrhoea, syphilis and HPV as direct skin to skin contact is involved as well as exchange of bodily fluids. Please consider following up with a STI testing from your physician or local health clinic.

Best wishes
Janet
