Intercourse: unprotected vaginal (receptive) sex with hetero male
Symptoms: irritated throat, ear ache, dry nose, white mucus/drainage, slight white coating on back of tongue, sinus pressure & headache
So I had a risk, sex which began protected and ended unprotected (condom came off ugh).
No ejaculation but a risk none the less.
18 days after this I’ve been experiencing irritation in my throat, a bit of sinus drainage, and now as of 21 days ear pressure & pain.
When I went to the doctors she told me she thinks I have a mild viral sinus cold which should pass. It’s been 4 days of being sick and I have some reservations and worries about this exposure.
Though my partner says he has tested negative (in June) you never know what’s happened in that time & really just have to test for yourself. He’s a family man and I want to believe he’s well since he just had a 5 month old baby, but again, a lot can happen in that time.
I’m mainly confused to testing guidelines:
I know 3 months is definitive but I’m wondering what a 4 and 6 week indicator would be (percentage wise)?
Next week Monday marks 4 weeks and I want to test Oct 1st 21 days past exposure.
Should I wait to test closer to 6 weeks for a more accurate result ?
Feeling nervous I hope this is just a short case of sinusitis, my sexual health has had the worst luck this year :(
Any advice / kind words while I wait to test are appreciated :)
