I dont know what to do? will the signs show right away? if so, wat are they? how do i know if the other person is infected with HIV or not? would it show in her appearance or physical structure? plz help me?

just hiv disease or some other diseases too?

Your chances of getting HIV via oral sex are very slim. I do not want to give anyone the impression that it icannot happen, but your chances of contracting the disease this is way are very small. In addition, you used a condom for the vaginal sex, so you should be ok, but it never hurts to get checked.
In general, HIV has no symptoms for years. Intitailly, within days of contraction, one may feel like they have a mild flu but this passes. After this, it may take 7 to 10 years for someone to devleop sypmtoms. Even then, symptoms are confused for other things because they are usually cold like, such as swollen glands. One can get sick more often than normal. One will develop soars in the mouth known as thrush. Sarcoma may present on the skin. After these signs present. people begin to get more ill.
But as I said these signs do not show for years. You cannot look at someone and know they have HIV. This is why it is so important to protect yourself.
If you think you were exposed, go to the docotors or health department and get tested. Today, this is simple. They can take a swab of your saliva and know if you are postive. You will need to be tested now and again in six months. It takes time for the anti-bodies to be present in your system, so just because someone test p negative today, does not mean the anti-bodies will not show six months later. After the second test proves negative, you are in the clear. Unless you have agan had unprotected sex.
If you are worried about other dieases, you need to get tested. Some men will have burning upon urination when they are exposed to an STD; others may have a discharge. But many men have no symptoms at all, so it is important to get tested. A disease left untreated can cause sterlity and other problems.

Most people who have HIV have no symptoms for several years. You can not tell if someone has HIV just by looking at them. Some people get flu symptoms within a couple months after they get infected, but it is impossible to tell the difference between flu symptoms caused by HIV infection and flu symptoms caused by actual flu.

The ONLY way to find out if you have HIV is to get an HIV test. More than 98% of people who have HIV would test positive within 3 months, but in very rare cases, it could take up to 6 months for someone to test positive.

Once someone is infected, they can pass the virus on to others, even if they do not have symptoms, and even if they do not yet test positive.

You can check the website hivtest.org to find free testing sites in your area. Just enter your ZIP code.

there are no immediate symptoms for HIV/AIDS. I could take months or years for this to become evident. There are no physical symptoms up front. You should go to a doctor for a blood test if you are worried.

RELAX BUT IF ARE AFRAID, GO SEE YOUR UROLOGIST HE CAN RUN A BLOOD TEST. WHAT MAKES YOU THINK SHE HAS AIDS??? AS FAR AS STD'S, THAT IS TREATABLE AND IN MEN BURNING URINE AND A DISCHARGE IS A BIG INDICATION YOU HAVE STD'S GOOD LUCK

Just get tested. That's the best way of knowing.

Get a test from your DR
