De nada. Quizas si hay organaciones del SIDA en su ciudad o pais, puede hacer contacto con esas para obtener informacion. Tambien LIVING THROUGH AN EPIDEMIC es una pelicula muy interesante sobre la epidemia si puede verlo por el internet.

We told you already you did not have a risk or need to test for specific incident.

Andy, te agradezco por la ayuda. Realmente me estaba comenzando a poner mal por el hecho de posibilidad de contagio. Leí que la probabilidad es de 1 en 10,000 según ciertos estudios, lo que sería de un 0,01%.

Hace algún tiempo he pensado dedicarme al tema de VIH-Sida en mi país, desde la formación profesional que tengo. Me gustaría, si es posible, me recomiendes bibliografía confiable sobre la historia de la epidemia y tópicos sobre estadísticas a nivel mundial. Gracias

There is no need for testing for incident but we always advise ...

Although you did not have a risk and do not need to test for this specific incident , anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results.

Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv. Some of the other STIs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

Just have the whole list of STIs done and remove any doubts you may have. Anyone who is sexually active should be having them done regularly.

Nada excepto sexo con su mano es 100% seguro. Pero sabemos despues de tantos anos en la epidemia que solamente la copula vaginal y anal sin usando los condones son riesgos confirmados.

Su saliva tiene mas que doce elementos y proteinas cuales son muy efectivo contra la transmicion del VIH fiable. Y recibiendo el sexo oral cualquir los detalles no es un rieso por el VIH.

Para preventir VIH transmicion sexualmente tiene que usar los condones cada vez por la copula. Punto.

Hi, Thanks for your reply!

So would you recommend testing for STD but no need for HIV test?

Thanks again,

Saludos agradeciendo de antemano la ayuda para mis dudas.

He visto la gran controversia sobre si el sexo oral a un hombre siendo activo es posible o no. Se dice que existe riesgo teórico, así me lo indicaron los de la Cruz Roja España y por eso me mandaron a hacer el test.

Comento un poco lo sucedido, practiqué sexo oral a un hombre que no conozco su estado de VIH, fueron máximo 20 segundos, pero antes limpié su glande, le puse lubricante a base de agua (estoy seguro que no había liquido preseminal) y realicé la acción. No sufro de encías sangrantes, pero antes de 4 horas del encuentro sexual me limpié un diente con hilo dental, supongo q sangró un poco. Estoy preocupado si es posible contraer el VIH por esta situación.

Otra duda, el liquido preseminal es realmente un agente de transmisión del VIH?

its not important and i never said it was, i was explain his story. i came on here for advice so please dont reply with stupid comments.
