How long would a sore throat caused by acute hiv last? What if I haven't had any other symptoms?

How long would a sore throat caused by acute hiv last? What if I haven't had any other symptoms?

Why do you ask?: I believe we have already visited. A simple sore throat without systemic signs is very, very unlikely to be HIV. Only you know whether you had a risky exposure a few weeks ago. If you did, you need to get a state-of-the-art HIV test simply because you're anxious. If you're okay, be glad, love more carefully from now on, talk about your anxiety with ur Dr, and resolve not to let fear dominate you ...Read more

I performed oral sex on a female unprotected 5 days ago. Yesterday, I felt my lymph nodes in my neck swollen, with a slight sore throat. I get chills/sweats, but my temperature is fine. I'm worried I have acute HIV.

Probably not: It would be rare for HIV to cause symptoms so quickly after transmission, and symptoms are more likely related to a cold or respiratory virus. However, it would be a good idea to be tested for studs regularly if having unprotected sex ...Read more

Continue testing: Up to 3 months, at which time the risk of your having HIV infection is very low. If you are overly concerned and willing to endure the cost you can be tested by pcr for HIV RNA and if negative, this should be confirmative. The tongue ulcer may well be syphilis. You should also be tested for other stds. Protect yourself in the future. You never know what your partner has. ...Read more

If: If you practiced safe sex and if you are certain the condom didn't break, it's unlikely you contracted hiv. Lack of ejaculation does not mean you are safe and if you experienced any penetration without a condom or with a broken condom, it is possible you were exposed to the disease. ...Read more
