im a female and had a possible encounter with a hiv man.
he "went down" on me for a pretty long time. ive heard contradicting opinions about this being a possible way of infection. some say it is, some say its not..
i have no other other existing std's and had no lesions that i knew off
i had muscle aches and tiredness for about 24 hours at about 3weeks after exposure.
then i got a sore throat and swollen glands and headache (likely it was stress) at about 6 weeks after exposure.(lasted a week)
and no other symptoms.
i still have a month to go before i can get reliably tested.
and am terrified.
is this classic primary hiv infection? what are my risks
i have so many different opinions and im really worried.
please reply

Acute or early HIV symptoms aren't specific, so, no one can be diagnosed with HIV due to the symptoms.
Although very low, oral sex poses risk for HIV transmission.
You may test with early HIV tests, like the p24 antigen test and HIV PCR test, usually giving accurate results within three weeks of infection.
