Is Having Anal Sex At Risk Of Same-sex Unprotected Sex And Fever, A Sign Of HIV?
, want to ask me there is a friend he has had same-sex risky sex without a condom but does not get sperm during anal sex? And the next day it was raining because he was stressed because he had done that. Then the fever and nausea are not appetite and skin rashes such as runny little round pimples? Because I see that it is characteristic of being infected with HIV, whether he is infected. But instead of vct check it’s better after 3 months of risky relationship right but why is the fever faster? Information please.
