Exposure resulting in HIV?


7 days ago, I went to get a massage and the girl spit in my anus and licked it for a while. She also used her fingers with saliva on them to rub/insert her fingers into my anus for a bit.

After I wiped my anus with a paper towel, I noticed a little blood on it mixed with saliva.

That same night I had a low grade fever, then the next day no fever, then two days later another hot flash and spike in temperature to 99.1. Also, my throat started hurting 4 days after this encounter and still hurts today. Also I've been very fatigued.

My questions are:

1) Am I at risk for HIV from the rimming/fingering exposures mentioned? I would have to believe so since there was a little blood in with the saliva. I am really concerned about the blood mixed in with the saliva.

2) Are my symptoms from HIV? If not, can you please explain why not?

3) Can I get HIV through saliva/tonguing alone?

Thank You.

Just so I understand, the saliva will kill the HIV in the blood drops that were mixed in with the saliva?

Saliva has properties that break down and inactivate the virus.

For your answer to #1, even if there is blood mixed with the saliva while she is rimming my anus, I cannot get HIV? Can you please explain?

This will be my last question, thank you.
