I am a 21years of age, male: As i wait for my doctor's appointment next week, I felt as though I may get some responses for my unanswered questions while i wait. Well last year some time i had sex with this unknown female I met at a club. Being a college student and all, it was one of those spontaneous ventures that I carelessly took part in. The female and I had protected sex, however I received oral sex unprotected.
Now what sparked my doctor's appointment was that I am having cold like symptoms for the past 2weeks and its been 6 years since I have not contracted a flu/cold virus.
Symptoms - Recently, I woke up with a sore throat and a headache so I was a bit suspicious. Today will make 2 weeks since I had that feeling, and I having the symptoms of coughing up yellow and white mucus, stuffy nose, and on-off diarrhea. Even though there is no real sign of knowing if someone really have the virus without testing, I was wondering if there was a possibility I might not have.

It could be a cold or flue or a number of things. Oral sex is not 100% safe sex...get tested for STDs and remember that you have to be very careful and always play safe..

Thanks much homerx, I see you have been an active member on the board and I respect your dedication.
I hope I dont have the virus, but its hell waiting until next week for my doctor's appointment. I am an active blood donor and I gave blood in January so its weird they havent contacted me since then. I know oral sex is not fully safe, but its funny that they always tell you to "wrap it up" however oral sex is not mentioned in the same frame. Its scary knowing that your life can end based on a series of viruses(STD), and its that feeling that quickly deteriorate your bodily function. I hope I am proven wrong but the dry coughs, swollen lymph nodes this morning and soar throat, just makes me more sad.
