Possible: if you have risk for the infection, best way to find out is to get checked.

Get tested: Hi Kevin 544. Many viral infections have an incubation (waiting for symptoms) period of 2-5 weeks, so the answer is yes. Testing for HIV is relatively available, although I'm not knowledgeable about S Korea. Consult your own practitioner.

A 39-year-old member asked:

What caused the first aids infections in straight humans?

Dr. Joel Gallant
Infectious Disease 36 years experience
Sex and drugs: Straight people can get infected by sharing needles or through sex. Women can be infected through vaginal or anal sex with an infected male partner. Straight men can get infected through sex with women, especially if they're uncircumcized and/or have genital ulcers. Straight men can also get infected by having sex with men, since "straight" describes orientation, not behavior.
