well heres my situation,4 months ago i had unprotected oral sex with an unknown hiv status guy,back then i had a small fresh(3 hours old) non bleeding cut on my genitals.the guy did actually touched my cut with his fingers and his tongue tho it was dark i couldnt see if there was blood on his fingers or even bleeding cuts.any way 6 weeks later i experienced flu like symptoms(swollen red tonsils,sore throat,mild fatigue,purple uvula) i never had fever or a significant rash tho. as searching though the net i found out that oral sex is not zero hiv risk so anxiety started to take place in my mind.my flu went away few days later but then i had white coating on my tongue and a dry throat,and a swollen part of my gum on the left side of my lower jaw which persists till these day but its painless,just a little bump on the gum under the tooth. few weeks later i developed a really bad cold sore on my upper lip that caused also a swollen lymph node beneath my jaw(disappeared in few days alone). Now 4 months have had passed since the oral sex and i still have this swollen gum issue, do u think that all this including the swelling gum is hiv related? i never had an hiv test cz this was my first and last sexual activity and it lasts for about 10 minutes. any good advice will be strongly appreciated!View Thread
