Hi Manny,

Perhaps you can introduce yourself to the forum members by opening your own thread.
Are you living with HIV, what treatment are you on, what are your number like ect.

Getting a BJ is not a risk, saliva is not infectious and the vaginal fluid in general is not infectious as its fluid from the cervix that is and besides HIV is not infectious outside the body and abrasions on your balls are not a route of infection, and they are outside the human body.

So no risk whatsoever for HIV, just move on and test as normal at least yearly for HIV & STI's. No need to worry about this specific incident.

Yo creo su riesgo es muy bajo y solamente una vez de corto tiempo.  Tambien el riesgo es mas bajo por el insertivo.  En mi experiencia en la epidemia no se algun caso de transmicion desde un condon rompiendo.

Considerando todos los hechos estoy esperando resultados negativos por Vd.
Am I Infected? / I am quite scared

A few days ago I found an escort and we had condom blowjob and also intercourse. But what I'm concern is that I have abrasion near to my balls at my inner thighs. Woukd it be possible if her fluids would have infected me with HIV when it's leaking and having contact with my abrasion?? If she's positive.
And also I pull out my condom with my left hand then touched my dick with my left hand too. Am I at risk?

Es lo que quiero pensar, al estar el glande cubierto, y sólo quedar al descubierto una parte del pene que era piel, sin heridas, es muy difícil que me haya podido contagiar, ¿no? Además el pene lo saqué inmediatamente.
Aunque es cierto que deberé hacerme las pruebas, para estar seguro al 100%.
Harley is correct about the lipo , too soon to worry about that,  if at all.
I also agree it is a result/side affect of the older meds,  this is from my own personal experience only. Then again I know people who were on the same drugs as myself and experienced no lipo issues at all.

It's great that your CD4's are above 200, so you won't need to worry about serious opportunistic infections (OI's).

Of course, you'll have to wait for further genotype testing, but I would check back with the doctor to see if there's a chance you could start on antiretroviral medication sooner than December 15.  If not, ask him or her if there are any precautions you may need to take before then (such as taking any prophylactic medications to ward off any potential OI's).  I'm not trying to cause you any worry, but I just want to make sure you remain fit and healthy.

Best wishes.

En este caso el riesgo fue solamente teorica porque la cabeza de su pene queda cubierto.

Para a ser seguro de su estado negativo y quizas tambien por su paz mental, hace la prueba por el VIH, primero a 6 semanas. Se esa resultado sera negativo como yo estoy esperando es seguro sera conclusivamente negativo a 12 semanas.
