Hi there, excellent job helping many people be better informed.

A guy recently inserted his tongue deep inside my anus for several minutes.

What's the HIV risk associated to that event?

Questions About Treatment & Side Effects / Re: Terbinafine

Hello leatherman!

Your math is correct. I must really have a strong immune system, because I almost never get sick or feel bad. Terbinafine is helping me wonders with the toenails and I'd really like to finish off that treatment. Will continue keeping both eyes on the viral load and won't worry that much about the bouncing cd4's.

Thank you very much! ;D

Living With HIV / Re: Pozing others

Down here in Fort Lauderdale this sub culture still exsists.  Mentally I can not wrap my brain around it. I know someone that had gone to one of these "parties" and I asked why and was told eventually I am going to be infected so why not just get it over with now. 

WTF dude! !!!!!   Btw he was in his 20s
Am I Infected? / Re: even with a condom ?
« Last post by Jeff G on Yesterday at 11:43:08 AM »
From what you shared you did not have a risk for HIV ... 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!

Nothing you mention was a risk for HIV and you do not need to test unless you want to do so for peace of mind only . You can read about testing here ...
