I've had a pretty bad fever for a few weeks, with chills, aches, and fatigue. I feel like I have the flu, so I'm here to talk to my doctor.
What you've been experiencing are the symptoms of an STI. I conducted blood work and tested it to confirm this and you tested positive for a viral infection.

It could have been prevented if you made sure to regularly use condoms, get tested, and talk openly with your partners about their STIs. Also, being careful to use clean needles when using them, and avoiding unprotected sex.
You got this from having unprotected sex with someone who was infected, reusing an infected person's needle, or if you consumed infected breastmilk.
