2 weeks ago, I was diagnosed with chlamydia and got treatment for it. I don't know if I am fully cleared of It. I haven't had sex ever since. I only had one sexual partner but he cheated on me. I have developed a swollen gland on my neck, it is painless but I get aches in my ears in and out, in the morning I get aches from on the jaw under my cheeks on the right to inside the ear. I get aches on both ears but my severely on the right side where the swollen gland is located (on the right side of my neck) the gland hasn't changed size in the last couple of days, I have no rash or fatigues but do I get pain under my rib on the left side. I went for another STD test and results take 3 days, and I've been worried ever since, I'm only 18 years old and just lost my virginity to someone thought was going to last, I wish I wasn't so stupid trusting him, I am really scared that is HIV that's causing the painless swollen gland.

Hello and Welcome

I appreciate your concern

Its unlikely that HIV is responsible for the swollen gland. It could be due to tonsillitis or otitis media. You can be more sure when the STD panel results are back as based alone on symptoms, one should not make preliminary diagnosis of HIV.

wishing you best of health
