    Possible HIV

    I was at a strip club and had unprotected sex with a stripper. About 18 days later i got a mild sour throat. Then, around day 20 I got a mild fever (100.5 highest). I got tested at the 3 week mark (4th Gen AB/AG) and the results came back negative. Can anyone help me determine if Im still likely to have HIV?

I was not sure if my hands touched those blood spots but then after maybe an hour, I was very thirty and....

    During a massage the masseuse, who was a guy, started giving me oral sex. I made him stop after about 15-20 seconds... really concerned that I made a terrible mistake.
