Brief Answer:
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 without oral sex , you shouldn't worry because there is no risk for HIV or some STI.

You should know that during a protected sexual intercourse could exist the risk to get just HSV 2, HPV and syphilis (if the partner have lesion in the skin that aren't covered by condom).
I think that these recent symptoms you have are related with just a simple flu.


I hope my answer helps you.

Thanks for the replying.

I still have a cold without a fever since the day after it happened should I be worried about anything regarding HIV or it's just a normal thing because of the weather?


Thank you.

I have checked my tempreture and it turns out I have a Normal tempreture. I don't have any runny nose etc.

The problem that I was facing turns out be "fatigue" its like feeling tired and weak. I still can go to the gym but i don't feel that i am 100% when I work out.

Most of the time I don't sleep enough especially this week since I have been traveling. The fatigue happened day after I had sex so is this a coincidence?

Hello,

I am a 26-year old female who has just been diagnosed with HSV 2. I have been with my husband for 5 years and this is the first time I have experienced symptoms. He has never experienced symptoms. We have both been faithful. We have had unprotected sex for 5 years now. We have also both had previous partners before eachother. How likely is it that he also has HSV 2? Thank you.
