I am a 26 year old man who has had two sore throats after having protected vaginal sex with a potential sex worker(I did not know this at the time) . I received a blow job and we kissed a bit initially. I went to a gum clinic who did a range of tests and found strep from a ureathral swab and some anerobes only..no STI;s like chlamydia or gonnorhea. I'm worried about the sore throat ive been having, what is wrong? I feat the condom split and i have got hiv, my throat is fairly red sore, no sign of bacterial infection. My exposure was last tuesday, i had a mild sore throat on thursday, this abated over the weekend but i was given cirprofloxacin on friday and anthromyacin on sunday both as a precaution as the results hadnt come back yet. No antibiotics on monday onwards. Today i got the strep in ureathrea result and given metronidazole. But i got a strong sore throat on tuesday that is still annoying me.
I am worried primarily about hiv possibility, would my symptoms at this stage after possible exposure indicate hiv? what are the odds of this?.....and the strep in my ureathra, is metronidazole good for that?
thanks, XXXXX XXXXX know if it was anaerobic but he said he did find some anerobes in my ureathra with the strep, does that sound like that it is anaerobic strepcocci?? Also, if there was a small hole in the condom, i don't remember there being a big tear or anything but i cant say for sure if there was a small punture...what is the risk then?
