User :   Hi,2 years ago I kissed a commercial sex worker on the mouth without any tongue involved. After 2-3 weeks, I had a fever for 2 days and got better. Did I contract HIV? please help.
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   this is two years ago right
User :   yes .. I have not been having any problems since then
User :   hale and healthy
Doctor :   any other symptom do you have noticed in the last two years ?
User :   no. my appetite, sleep patterns is normal. I have not have a fever or anything since then. Sometimes I get a cough or a cold which I think is normal, but not often
Doctor :   the behavior two years ago was risky
User :   yes, I regret it
Doctor :   since you did not have any symptom yet it is very much unlikely you have an HIV infection
User :   what are the symptoms I should look for. When I got fever, I had a cough for a week, had fever for 2 days. I took medicines and became completely ok.
