Please don't worry , there is no risk for HIV.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you writing in healthcare magic.

Based on your history, having protected sexual intercourse and no oral sex, you shouldn't worry because there is definitly no risk for HIV.
This is just a bacterial tonsillitis caused by streptoccocus without any relation with acute retroviral syndrom.

I hope my answer helps you.

Usually occurs about 10 days after infection.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thank you writing back.

You should know that ARS (seroconversion) usually occurs about 10 days after infection, and for most people it starts 1-3 weeks after infection.
But, some people cannot notice they have ARS because could have mild symptoms or couldn't have any .

I hope my answer helps you.
Regards.
