Okay, so on December 28th, 2015, i engaged in insertive anal sex (circumcised), and I asked the person before we had sex was he clean and of course he replied yes. Even though he said he was clean, you never know how much you can truly trust a person. I knew him decently, but I'm not sure if it was well enough for him to be 100% honest. Anyways, during sex, I asked multiple times if he felt anything tear or blood, and he replied back "no". Later on that night, I asked him again did he have anything or felt any rips or tares and he said no again. I then left it alone at that point. On January 15th, I went to the hospital for an extreme headache (the headaches did not accompany any other HIV-related symptoms). I had started to become worried if I had became infected, but I did not mention that to the nurse that I had a risky exposure, so they never took that into consideration. I was released and the symptoms went away. Like a week later, I started to get a slight scratchy throat, which today turned into a strept throat feeling slightly. It's not terrible whatsoever, but it's definitely present. Along with this, I had a slight headache and body aches. Me being a nervous wreck and a hypochondriac to an extreme, I went to a primary care physician, and they tested me for strept throat, which came back negative. They asked questions about my general health, but none related to sexual health, so I did not volunteer any information about my risky encounter. She told me it sounds like a viral infection similar to a common cold, but I sat there thinking completely otherwise. Even though my symptoms were headache, body ache, slight fatigue, sore throat and an unnoticeably enlarged lymph node (doctor said), I really feel like I've been exposed to the virus. I did not have any fever or rash. Again, me being being the nervous wreck I am, I called CDC and asked about early HIV warning signs; they listed symptoms like nausea, vomitting, extreme tiredness for no reason, rash, depression, etc. None of these were close to my symptoms for the most part, so now I don't know what or what to believe. I'm too paranoid to take an HIV test because I'm deathly afraid it'll come back positive. When I take cold medicine, the symptoms go away for a while, but come back a few hours later. Does that happen if HIV is present? Also, I heard the symptoms relative to HIV have been described as "the worst flu ever". To what degree of my symptoms should I start to worry? I'm really scared about this, and if I do have it, I can't tell my parents because I'm not openly gay. Therefore, unless there's another way for me to pay for medication, I'll just let it take its course and hope for the best. Can I please get some advice on this. Can someone tell me if they think I do or don't have HIV?
