Dr. David :

This is Dr. David

Dr. David :

unprotected oral sex has about a 0.5 to 1 in 10,000 chance of contracting HIV.

Dr. David :

so the chances are super super super super low.

Dr. David :

your dry cough symptoms are not from HIV. most likely a bronchitis or cold virus infection or post nasal drip.

Dr. David :

you can get blood testing to check for HIV, but I bet money that your testing will be negative.

Dr. David :

had you had blood HIV testing before?

JACUSTOMER-gyzp0ufb- :

I also suffer from Chronic Fatigue Syndrome sao have a six monthly check for STIS &Hiv

Dr. David :

Dr. David :

I doubt your current symptoms are due to HIV.
