Brief Answer:
It is not due to ARS.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXX,

Welcome to HCM.

You had protected sex with CSW then there is no risk of HIV infection in your case. As fas as enlarged or swollen lymph nodes are concerned it might be due to some other bacterial or viral infection but not due to ARS because the symptoms of ARS will take at-least one weak to develop so don't get worried or tensed as you are absolutely safe and risk free. If still any query is there feel free to ask me again and I am here to help you out always.

Thank You

I have one query doctoe. Ars symptoms take one week to develop means it will start one week or it will become noticable after one week? Because my lymp nodes are not noticable and only foud by the gp.Is there any other std that can cauae the same symptoms in 5 days?

Brief Answer:
The symptoms start after one week.

Detailed Answer:
Dear XXXX,

Welcome back and thanks for follow-up.

The symptoms of ARS start developing after one week of infection and the enlarged lymph nodes can be due to multiple causes but in case of STD it will take very long time to have swelling of lymph nodes and in your case the risk of infection is zero so no need to get worried or feared. Be relaxed, forget about the episode and move on in life happily.
