Patient

Q: Hi, I am currently on vacation in Bali and recently (5 days ago) engaged in protected sexual intercourse with a female prostitute. I was intoxicated and know that the condom did not break. However I did receive oral sex unprotected. Just yesterday I woke up feeling rather ill, I realised that I had most of the symptoms of HIV, sore throat, swollen lymph glands, aching muscles and joints and a mild headache, all of which were rather mild symptoms. Today I woke up feeling fine and got on with my day. I did not ask the girl if she had any infections. I was just wondering what my chances are of having hiv? I am rather frightened as I am only 18 years old and have a girlfriend in Australia of 9 months. Please help Thanks.
