Dear doctor,
9 years ago I had unprotected oral sex (fellatio) without ejaculation in my mouth. 5 days after I got tonsilitis which were gone after 2 days when I got antibiotics. I did not consider that then risk. Till ladt month I were ok ( one flu, one diarreha and obe more tonsilitis in 9 years). But I got sinusitis which ladt 1 week and my nose is ok, my face is not swollen but i gennerally have strange feeling in sinuses. I called hiv center and they told me I have no risk and that all this ia not conbected with hiv and that I should already have opportunistic deaseases if I were then infected.
Is that true?

Thank you

Welcome to e health forum.

The risk due to oral sex is negligible. There is no reason to think that you have full blown AIDs inspite of not being infected with HIV.

Your symptoms are not related to HIV. Most likely cause of your symptoms would be due to common viral infections (common cold) which are common when you come in close contact (as during handshakes during meetings, kissing, sexual intercourse, etc) with new individuals, when nasal or oral secretions can be passed on to infect others.

Most of these cases improve on their own within a few days without treatment. Some measures like adequate rest, anti-inflammatory medications (advil, tylenol), good diet can help in recovery.
