Hello, about 4 hours ago I had a unprotected sex with another women as experimentation. I was the top and she was the bottom. i gave her vaginal sex and then we had short sessions of sex her being the bottom and I didn't ejaculate inside of him. . I did not kiss nor put my lips on his skin at all A day after the encounter I became engulfed with terrible regret and became deeply depressed and paranoid thinking I'm infected with HIV. MY PARTNER IS hiv NEGATIVE . Anyway, I began develop a small dry cough and a light sore throat at night.i have a chance of HIV OR NOT.?
A single act of unprotected intercourse with a HIV positive person, has a HIV risk of 0.04% per act. Hence multiple âsex encounters are very important to ensure that HIV infection is acquired. â
The symptoms mentioned by you, appear to be due to streptococcal pharyngitis, which is common, and is a benign ââinfection, that resolves soon in most individuals. â
In case, your partner, has a confirmed HIV negative status, then there is no chances of HIV transmission.
For people who think they may have been exposed to HIV, having a test and receiving a negative result (which âââmeans they are not infected with HIV), can put their mind at rest. â
To relieve your anxiety and for a definitive âdiagnosis, you might consider getting screened with âHIV test. This will âhelp you get over the past exposure and move âon ahead in your life. â
HIV is diagnosed based on the serological detection in the blood samples, and not from the symptoms that you âmight âbe having. A person after exposure to HIV can get âtested as early as 4 weeks to 12 weeks with the ELISA for âHIV âantibody test. 90% of normal individuals who have HIV âexposure, will seroconvert within 4-6 weeks. The âsensitivity âof the ELISA test is 99.9%. â
