Symptoms of HIV/AIDS
I had unprotected sex with my boyfriend in December 2016, January and February 2017. That is three times. He has had unprotected sex earlier but that was long time back and same is with me. After the third intercourse that is in February a few days back, he is facing some symptoms like feeling hot and sweating and I am having a sore throat. I want to know if there are any chances of HIV/AIDS. How and when does it happen and how to confirm without checkup. Really worried.

Hello there.  I can understand your concern.  Think of more rational reasons. He might be feeling hot and sweating because of the weather. You might be having a sorethroat because of some infection be it viral or bacterial. Confirming HIV without any check up or test is impossible. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain. Bangalore.
