Unprotected anal sex, fever later that night
tml1991 posted:
I recently went though a bicurious phase and received anal sex yesterday. I now have a fever and anxiety a day later. But no other symptoms. Could this be related to the sex? Could it be a self induced anxiety based fever, like I have given myself a few times over my life, could it be related to the infected hangnail on my finger that seemed to resolve itself the same day the fever began? Or something else entirely? Looking for advice. By the way, the sex only lasted a few minutes. As I didn't enjoy it and stopped it shortly after it began. The guy I got with said he was clean, by the way.

It would be unusual to have symptoms of infection or an STD so quickly after such an event.

This was protected or unprotected anal intercourse???

tml1991 replied to georgiagail's response:
Yes. All fever is gone, all fatigue is gone, nausea is gone. Some anxiety still remains. That anxiety does affect my appetite some and causes me to pace. Overall though, I feel much better than I did a few days ago. Those symptoms lasted two days. So I think it was a 48 hour virus. I took test. The urine test came out negative and the blood test still remain. I keep shifting from being confident I will be fine, to being nervous at times.
