Am I Infected? / Re: HIV like rashes 2 weeks past contact
« Last post by summer457 on Today at 12:32:21 PM »
Hi Joe,

Thanks for the fast reply. Oral sex was with a condom too, so I thought already no much of risk. But the fingering bothers me...
How do you especially in detail see the risk of fingering.
Some persons and websites (also government ones) clearly state that there can be a potential risk from fingering as the vaginal fluid is enough to transmit.

How about the statistics/studies? What did those state on fingering

You have not had a risk.  Protected sex is not a risk and an intact condom means no risk.  The fact that she may have touched her vagina, before putting on your condom does not create any risk.

The risk factors for HIV are ...

Sharing IV drug needles immediately after use.
Unprotected anal and vaginal sex.
Mother to child during or shortly after birth.
Very specific health care situations.

Use condoms for vaginal and anal sex consistently and correctly and you will avoid HIV infection, it is that simple.

You have not had a risk and you do not need to test over this incident.

Joe

Thanks for Incredibly Fast reply

yes I know that risk factors

my concern is :
  she touched her vagina before sex for 1 seconds(I see her. yes she touched,but I dont know any water was there) and her water in her finger maybe touched my penis ( when she put condom)
my concern only her finger
If her finger with water touched my penis when she put me a condom,Is it a risk
And If it is not any risk why

Could I explain



thank you again
I am sorry because my english is not well. :'(

thanks

You have not had a risk for HIV infection.

Oral sex is not a risk for infection.  HIV is a very fragile virus that becomes damaged immediately when leaving the host, where changes in temperature, pH and moisture levels, alter the HIV rendering it unable to infect.  The mouth is another barrier in that it contains over a dozen proteins and enzymes that alter the HIV leaving it unable to infect.

There have been no fewer than three separate serodiscordant couples studies (where one person is HIV positive, the other negative.) These couples were tracked for three. five and ten years. The couples used condoms for penetrative vaginal and anal sex, but NO BARRIER at all for oral sex. Any kind of oral sex.

These studies yielded NO infections.

The intercourse you had was protected and an intact condom means no risk.

Symptoms can be caused by many things and if they worry you, you should consult with your doctor as it has nothing to do with HIV.  We also do not allow links or pictures, because the only thing that matters is what you did and in your case, you have not had a risk, nor do you need to test over this incident.

I have removed your second post, so you still have two questions left.

I wonder how it's going.  I will be looking, in the next couple days, for info on how things are.  I still believe if they want addicts to come out to get tested and treated, they're going to have to get rid of the cameras.

Well, I hope people here have seen the results of Indiana's law.  Now governor Pence is trying to "fix it."  Too many negatives dollar wise, with businesses pulling out and condemning the law. 

I actually live in Michigan now, but when I lived in Indiana, I always thought, how can this be a Northern state?  It seemed it belonged next to Mississippi.

Mark, as you know, I've had some dealing with surgery lately.  Actually the hard part for me was way after surgery, but my surgery involved a hip and a limb I have to walk with lol.  So, it was a bit more touchy. 

But yeah, everyone is correct, if you take the pills like every 4-5 hours the first couple days, and do exactly what they tell you, you'll be okay.  I don't like pain either, no one does.  You'll be okay.  Seriously.

Am I Infected? / HIV like rashes 2 weeks past contact
« Last post by summer457 on Today at 11:38:42 AM »
Hi all,

I (m) had a chinese massage experience 17 days ago.
It contained a blow job and vaginal sex protected with a condom. I guess once the condom looks ok, its not broken or had holes. However what scares my ass off is that I fingered her in the middle of the intercourse with 1,2 fingers.

The next day I realised.
On one of my finger the skin next to the nail was half way gone, when I pull it off it was slightly bleeding.

Unfortunately I traveled to another place the next day, so all was new (food, clothes, climate etc). However I developed some very scary indications:
- few days post the action: freezing, headache, higher than normal temperature
- 1 week post: started to slowly get rashes on my chest, stomach area (these look very similar than you can find online)
- 10 days past: sore throat, neck pain, not much appetite, nose blocked, voice irritated ----proper flu
- 14 days past: rashes geht really all over cheats and stomach

What do you think to my situation? What can be the potential risk in terms of fingering? Lots of websites say there is potentially a risk.
Any other STD cause chest and stomach rashes?
I also read that you don't judge the symptoms, however its really scary to find them on myself. Any suggestion welcome?

Thanks!
