The Characteristics Of People Exposed To HIV A Day After Oral Sex?
Hello, I want to ask how is the sign that the person is infected with HIV a day after engaging in sexual activity even though only oral sex is no more?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
One day after having a risky sexual relationship, you will not see any signs if you are infected with HIV. The symptoms of early HIV infection can only be felt 1-4 weeks after exposure to the virus and the symptoms of this initial HIV infection are very, very nonspecific (symptoms are similar to other viral infections such as fever, rash in the body, sore throat, swollen lymph glands clear, headache, abdominal pain, muscle and joint pain).
Basically the risk of HIV transmission from oral sex is very small. However, if you really suspect that your sexual partner has HIV, you should immediately consult a doctor to get HIV post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP), which is a drug that is given to prevent post-exposure HIV infection. This drug is effective to be administered within the first 72 hours after exposure, so check with your doctor immediately to get this drug.
If it has passed 72 hours after exposure, then this drug will no longer be effective, all you can do is wait for an HIV test. HIV testing can be done at least 4 weeks after exposure, but it can take longer depending on the HIV testing tool used.
Henceforth, always be careful and avoid risky sexual relations. Do not change sexual partners or always use a condom when you have sex.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
