What are the symptoms of HIV?
I had the second intercourse on 23rd May 2014. This time protected sex with the same CSW but with deep throat kissing. After 7 days I stated suffering from phlegm where stain of blood coming. I did my 3rd generation antibody test after 19 days of the sex. It came back negative. Still the phlegm generating. Since last 5 days I am suffering from joint pain with popping noise.
Very much afraid. Are these symptoms of HIV. I don't have fever. I am in Kazakhstan and only 3rd generation antibody test available.
Waiting for your reply.
Kissing carries negligible risk for HIV.
Welcome to HCM.
Thanks for posting your query.
Ranbaxy SRL is a very good laboratory in XXXXXXX , A negative HIV test after 105 days is very much conclusive that you are free from HIV.
Regarding your second contact you had it protected. Kissing (deep kissing) has a negligible risk for HIV. But an ordinary throat infection is very much possible by throat kissing. Anybody can get a throat infection. Such a common nuisance. Moreover the earliest possibility HIV manifestation can occur only after 4-6 weeks in the presence of infection and not earlier. So your symptoms could not be due to HIV.
Appropriate antibiotics in adequate dose and for adequate duration will cure your problem.
HIV test after 12 weeks to rule out HIV will relieve your mental tension. 3rd generation test is equally good.
Symptoms are not specific to HIV.
Once again I affirm that a HIV manifestation can not occur within a week or ten days after the infection It took not less than 4 weeks. More over earlier manifestation can occur only with 50% of individuals with infection. Sore throat and joint pain are not at specific symptoms to denote the presence of HIV. Only with a test HIV can either be confirmed or ruled out. Very late stage of the disease, say after 15 years or more, when the immunity lost below safe level, certain diseases themselves indicating the presence of HIV. Here also test has to support the findings.
