I'm just gonna jump right into it. I had unprotected vaginal and oral sex 6 days ago with a recent female friend
(Tuesday the 9th of February) and I've been freaking out since 2 days after, I noticed my tongue was yellow. Not heavily coated yellow, more like a light layer of yellow towards the back of the tongue but it doesn't extend all the way on the tongue, nor is it heavily coated or thick.
Still, searching this brought up HIV and needless to say, I lost my **** a bit (probably an understatement honestly). However, in my searching it also brought up that HIV symptoms do not show up for approximately 2 weeks after the initial contact. Also, other STDs/STIs have an approximate time frame of 2 to 5 (sometimes 7) days. Though I know it can be longer in some cases.
Point being, though I've been freaking out over every little pain, tingle, or sensation I feel, I don't think I've had anything resembling a "symptom", that being something that is a pattern, not one off feeling here or there. So I'm essentially in a perpetual state of feeling something or noticing something, having a freak out in my mind, then talking myself back down with logic. It's driving me nuts. I do plan to go get tested, blood and urine but I want to wait until I'm 2 weeks clear from the day of contact as I've read that 2 weeks or more is when you can be tested for pretty much everything, though with HIV I've heard it's also good to do tests after 3 months and 6 months to follow up and be sure if you've tested negative initially.
My friend has mentioned time and again that she is clean, and was tested approximately 6 weeks before we had sex and her results were 100% clean, she did have a more frequent partner but he and her were involved before she was tested and so, as her results say according to her, he's clean and didn't/couldn't pass anything to her, to then have something to pass to me. However, she was not specific about WHAT kind of test(s) she had done. I only say that because some females I know think a pap smear tests for STDs/STIs such as chlamydia, and others. I'm a man (though a young one, 21) but even I know that's false. So, I'm sure you can understand my skepticism since I don't have details regarding her test(s).
Like I said, I'm going to get tested after another week (which makes 2) and I've been and will be monitoring myself closely (probably out of straight up fear and paranoia). However, like I said, I don't seem to have any symptoms. There's no warts, burning, soreness, swelling, pain in any area outside of typical day to day pain (I work in a warehouse that is not insulated and right now Louisiana's weather is going from mid 70s to below freezing every few days so, catching a small cold is not uncommon though, my immune system is very strong and I always dress to stay warm when the temperature drops) and no pain or anything regarding the genitals. The only thing is this yellow tongue which, again, occurred or rather was noticed, 2 days after intercourse. Which, is too soon to call it HIV.
Also, perhaps it's just because I'm watching my patterns more closely now that I'm paranoid but, I seem to think I've been urinating more often than usual. However since I've only just started taking note of every little thing I do out of fear and paranoia, perhaps this is usual and I simply don't notice it? Also, I usually drink 2-4, 16 or 20 ounce bottles of water every day along with 2-3, 8 ounce glasses of milk and occasionally 8 ounces of orange juice in the morning. Again, maybe it's the paranoia noticing the frequency of my bathroom habits. Also, my urine has been as normal as can be. Nothing unusual, no obviously dark urine, or discharge. And no pain during.
I apologize for typing out a literal essay but, like I said, I've been swinging between calm and normal to losing my **** and going crazy. I guess I'm seeking an educated opinion or voice as to what could be happening or whether I'm just fine and simply a paranoid mess. Again, I know testing is the only sure way to know and I will be getting tested in about another week. Any honest responses will help, and I'm grateful if someone manages to actually read all of that!
