The Possibility Of Contracting HIV Aids Through Sexual Harassment?
Morning, I’m a 23 year old guy, a week ago on January 5, 2019, I experienced an unpleasant incident. I became a victim of hypnosis and sexual abuse by gays. I was told to do oral sex until the sperm discharge came out in my mouth, I immediately tried not to swallow it and throw it away. But I worry if some of the liquid is swallowed 😔. Luckily, it wasn’t until he was doing anal (because someone was passing by). 3 days after the incident, a mild fever, my body felt tired, my throat felt painful. I consider this a symptom of the common cold, because in the past three days I have been affected by the rain. Then I took paracetamol, the fever went down, but my throat was still hard to swallow. I was worried about being a positive person and I was infected. What should I do? Can an HIV test be done right now because the symptoms are almost the same as what I read here? or have to wait 3 months first? Oh, how do you deal with fever and aching pain for a while. Thank you (please answer me, I’m very worried) 😔
Hello, Thank you for the question.
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) is a virus that attacks a person's immune system (CD4 cells) so that the immune system cannot cope with infections or diseases that attack the body. If this virus is not treated immediately, this virus will further develop and cause more serious illness. HIV is transmitted from sufferers to other people through body fluids (blood, ejaculatory and pre-ejaculatory fluids, vaginal mucus, rectal mucus, and breast milk). The body fluids must be in contact with the mucous wall of an organ, damaged tissue, or put directly into a vein. The mucus wall in question is the wall that lines the mouth, vagina, anus, and penis.
HIV can be transmitted through the following methods:
sexual relations with sufferers without safety (condoms)
share syringes with HIV positive sufferers
receive blood transfusions or other blood products that have been contaminated with HIV
from mother to baby during pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding
Sexual intercourse that can risk transmitting HIV is sexual intercourse through the vagina and anus. In theory, oral sex can also cause HIV transmission, although cases are very rare. Transmission can occur if the patient ejaculates in the mouth after oral sex. To detect whether someone is infected with HIV or not need a blood test. HIV tests are carried out to detect antibodies / immune substances in a person's blood that are formed as a body's reaction to this infection or detect antigens (virus protein particles found on the surface of the virus). For antibody testing, it takes 3-12 weeks after exposure until these antibodies can be detected by blood tests while for antigen testing it takes 2-6 weeks after exposure.
You may do an HIV test at this time. The results of this examination will be used as a reference / baseline examination to find out if you have been infected with HIV before exposure occurs. If the results of the current examination are negative and what you do is have an antibody test, the examination will be repeated 3 months later. Subsequent treatment depends on the results of blood tests repeated. Please do your consultation / VCT (voluntary counseling and testing) with your doctor first so that you get more information about HIV before conducting a blood test.
A sore throat accompanied by fever may be caused by strep throat, tonsillitis, or flu. Usually sufferers also experience coughs, colds, muscle aches, headaches, fatigue, decreased appetite. You can do the following suggestions:
get enough rest
multiply the consumption of nutritious foods
multiply water consumption
gargle with salt water to relieve sore throat
consumption of paracetamol if the body temperature rises
Do not hesitate to consult a doctor if symptoms do not improve for more than 1 week. The doctor will examine you and determine the next treatment.
I hope this helps.
