so back in october I had what most people would call a one night stand. We used protection... and I'm assuming the condom never broke but how do I know? I knew the guy for at least a month though but either way... we haven't talked after that. :/ blah. anyways, about a week and a half after that, I came down with a terrible terrible cold. I had a sore/swollen throat with white spots on the tonsils (I could hardly talk), swollen glands, a bit of a fever and of course, I was tired. I went to the doctors and they had me do a throat culture which came back fine. he also had given me antibiotics. They worked and I was back to normal. A month after that, I got sick with almost the exact same thing except it was 10x worse. I had a swollen sore throat w/white spots, swollen glands, nausea (I did throw up this time) and a tad bit of a fever. My doctor did yet another throat culture.. came back fine. and he put me on a different antibiotic. which worked fine..... but now, I'm kind of afraid and maybe I'm stupid for thinking I could be HIV+. I feel fine now but I read you don't get symptoms til later down the line. I don't know. I did stop taking my antibitoics after I started feeling well the first time I got sick so I'm thinking maybe that explains why I got sick again. I could get tested but do I really have a reason to worry?
