Hello Everyone, I'm a 35 year old male
-On Sept. 6th I went down on a female (Cunnilingus) for approximately 5 mins. I'll be honest, she did not smell like a bed of roses, but nothing overwhelmingly stomach turning. We had protected vaginal sex, but condom did not break. Now I have been reading that Cunnilingus has close to zero risk of transmission for HIV, but I have also read that if there is a presence of Bacterial Vaginosis, then risk of HIV transmission is greatly increased. Also, to mention, I did brush my teeth and tongue about 5 minutes before cunnilingus.
-On Sept. 9th I began experiencing the following symptoms: Severe pain in my upper stomach (Liver Area); vomited 4 times the same day, diarrhea twice same day. The vomiting and diarrhea only lasted one day Sept. 9th. Since the 9th, my upper abdomen pain, which radiates through my back and upper left abdomen has come and gone, I've had sore muscles (mostly in Quadriceps); sore joints (mostly in knees); slightly sore throat; noticeable fatigue; slight headache behind the ears and temples; and some weight loss (5lbs in 2 weeks). However, I have not had a fever at all (I check 3-4 times a day), no rashes, no night sweats, nor any loss of appetite.
My Questions Are:
1) What is my risk of HIV transmission given the sexual exposure I have explained?
2) If BV does increase the risk of transmission, could someone please explain why this is...I understand that there is an increased presence of HIV present in BV discharge, but was under the impression that saliva kills the HIV virus?
3) Is it typical for HIV symptoms to surface just 3 days after that exposure?
4) Are there any other STD or viruses that exhibit these symptoms, which would show up in the time frame I explained?
I appreciate any information anyone can provide on this.
