unprotected Oral Sex


I had unprotected oral sex 5 days ago.
I was of negative status prior to this.

1. would a blood test tell me if I've contracted HIV or is it too soon to tell ?
2. Is it too late to go on any preventative medication.
3. Are there any noticable side effect of this (preventative medication)?

There is a window period of 3 months, where the test would be negative even if you contracted HIV.
You could ask the other person to have a test though. The chances of getting HIV from oral sex are pretty low. Preventative measures should be started within 4-6 hoursof the episode.
