This is my story: on feb 8 (5 weeks and 2 days ago) I had unprotected sex with a guy, I agreed because he seemed very healthful and he told me he always uses condom but that he trusted me because we were from the same community and he knew girls like me are not a risk (although I really can't tell with how many girls he has had sex with without protection, so maybe the "risk" was him and not me).
After that night I didn't see him again because I moved to another city and almost immediately I met someone here in the new city.
The first days we had sex with condom, but on March 3 we had sex without condom for first time and 6 days after that he started to feel a little sore throat, it was so little that he didn't mention anything until it got worse.
On March 15 (1 week and 5 days after the first time of sex without protection) the sore throat became worse and accompanied with swollen glands and headache, no fever and he didn't mention anything about rash. He went to the doctor and started to take antibiotics (because his kids had strep 3 weeks ago, but the doctor told him he didn't have strep but maybe he caught something from his kids), after 1 day and a half of antibiotics he woke up and told me that he had horrible night sweating but now he barely has sore throat and that he was feeling great. So the very bad days of sickness were only 2 days (1 week and 5 days after the first time we did it without condom)
So basically I would like to know:
1. The fact that he felt very good in the morning after the night sweating is a sign that the antibiotic worked and that he actually had a bacteria? (If it was something that he caught from his kids, is it possible to develop it after so long like 3 weeks?)
2. Why if he had a bacteria or other virus different than HIV I didn't get contagied if I've seen him every day? I know any virus or bacteria is contagious but HIV synptoms aren't since the way of transmission is the blood or body fluids
3. Is it possible that the symptoms appear 1 week and 5 days after the unprotected sex?
4. Which are the odds that the HIV symptoms last only 2 days? Since I've been reading that they use to last 1-2 weeks (the sore throat was the only symptom that lasted 1 week but as I mentioned it was very little in the beginning and it became worst only for 2 days and then it disappeared. Swollen glands for 2 days and the third day they started to reduce inflammation)
I'm asking about his case because up to now I haven't had any symptom but I am very worried about the HIV condition of the first guy.
Thank you so much in advance for your time!
