Not a sign of HIV: Not a sign of HIV.Your HIV test 9 days post exposure is negative.It needs to be checked at 12 weeks and 6 months again.Not because you have canker sore but because you had unprotected sex with some one you don't knoe if HIV ppsitive or not.The risk of HIV is minimal.Actually it is 0to1 in 2500 for vaginal sex and 0 oral sex given to you.These incidents are in high income countries
