When the condom slipped off, how long did this occur before you were aware of this...in other words, did ejaculation occur with the condom removed?
If not, I personally would not worry about getting tested unless, by doing so, this would ease our concerns. If ejaculation did not occur you would not be in contact with his sexual fluids that, in an HIV positive male, would contain the virus. Ejaculation did not occur with the oral sex.
If you wish to consider testing, the recommended time period is 3 months after the event. Home test kits (i.e., the Oraquick) are available should you wish to do this yourself.
We do not attempt to diagnose HIV by symptoms, only by testing.
Your act of protected anal sex is not a risk, assuming the condom was used accurately and did not break or tear. Even if your partner was HIV positive, the virus cannot cross an intact latex barrier.
Oral sex (both giving and receiving) carries an extremely low risk of HIV transmission. Think along the lines of an estimated risk of .5 to 1 per 10,000 exposures with a source KNOWN to carry the virus. If you cannot confirm this persons status, the risk lessens.
Your risk all depends on whether your partner was even HIV in the first place.
If yes, receptive unprotected vaginal intercourse carries an estimated risk of 10 per 10,000 exposures of a source KNOWN to carry the virus. This assume the act was carried to completion, i.e., ejaculation took place.
The estimated risk from unprotected oral sex is .5 to 1 per 10,000 exposures, again with a source KNOWN to carry the virus and assuming the act was carried to completion.
Thanks for your Reply!"Would HIV symptoms last this long at the early stages? "
No. ARS occurs two to six weeks after transmission and has flu like symptoms that last about two weeks.
"Does HIV make everything on your body hurt even in your fingers? "
I've described what ARS is above.
"Do you think being my symptoms are lasting this long I need to be released? My last test was at 44 days after exposure and negative." I'm not sure what you mean by being "released"? Do you mean should you take another test? Let me ask you this. If past the 90 day mark and when the test comes back negative (as it will), would this result help you put your concerns about HIV finally behind you?

For those who worry, there are home testing kits available (i.e., the Oraquick) which are available in many drugstores, Walmarts, etc.. This allows someone to test without the added time and expense of having to make an appointment with a physician or clinic.
