How is HIV transmitted?
Very very unlikely. No one develops symptoms of acute HIV within a week!
Hi and thank you so much for this query.
I am so sorry to hear about these symptoms and all the disturbing thoughts this has caused you. I have reviewed your symptoms fully. I understand your fears about HIV and its transmission. However, your timeline of exposure and events cannot make HIVa possible cause of your symptoms. Am pretty sure your symptoms are caused by a viral infection which certainly has nothing god o with HIV. Be relaxed and confident that your symptoms are not related to HIV.
Beside sex and blood contamination, getting HIV through skin to skin contact are very very rare. These constitute less than 1% of all cases of HIV transmission and would have been very unlikely for you to have been contaminated through this.
In all, your symptoms are not suggestive of HIV. Caused by an acute viral infection.
I hope this helps. I wish you well. Thanks for using our services and do feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be.
