Swollen inguinal and cervical lymph nodes and HIV


Q: Hi, on the 1st of October, I had an unprotected sex. Though, it was really brief because I told him to stop and he did not ejaculate. About three weeks after I have a swollen lymph node in groin area(left). It is painless and does not cause any other symptoms other than one night sweat on the day I found it. In the late of November, I found several swollen lymph nodes in my neck area both left and right side. Again, I have no other symptoms aside from night sweat on the day I found out about those nodes in the neck area. Also, I had had a sore throat for a few days. I never get these things before in my life. I have done a lot of research, which I found that HIV could possibly be the reason, and was extremely worried and stressed out. Two weeks ago, I went to the hospital and the doctor checked my urine. The lymphocytes in my urine were 15-20. A week later, I went there again and the result was 30-40 lymphocytes in urine. Today, it showed 3-5 lymphocytes in urine. The doctor also told me to get a blood test in which the results will be in two days. Is it possible that I might get HIV?

Symptoms:  Two night sweats, a few days of sore throat
