Estoy infectado? / Re: ¿Estoy en riesgo?

Si el condón se rompió, se corre el riesgo ....  intacta, un condón es sexo protegido . Cuando he traducido la pregunta que parece decir que el condón se rompió, pero yo diría que el condón no hacerlo me corrija si estoy equivocado .
Am I Infected? / Condom Flip
« Last post by worriedanxiously on Yesterday at 01:13:26 PM »
Hello this question is for the doctor. Recently i was involved in a risky sexual encounter in which i was inserting my finger with a condom into a prostitute's vagina. Later on we used the same condom for protected insertive sex. What I'm worried about is that I'm not sure which side was facing out when i used the condom on my finger and if that was the side that goes inside when placed on my penis. If so would the vaginal fluids on it and then placed on my bear penis pose a risk for hiv transmission to occur. Really freaking out please help. thank you

It's summer, boys! Time to learn how to "circumcise your torso."

The only disability you should disclose at the application stage is a physical disability that will make it difficult for you to apply for the job.  HIV doesn't fit that description.
Also, it's not really a good idea to disclose your HIV status to an employer at all, unless absolutely necessary.  Your privacy is yours to protect, or lose.

Buenos días.

Antes que todo ofrezco una disculpa pues quizá la duda que tengo no sea realmente muy significativa, pero no tengo mucho conocimiento del tema y realmente me siento algo angustiado.

Tengo 29 años, soy gay. Generalmente no me gusta andar teniendo relaciones sexuales por ahí, si acaso sexo más seguro (besos, masturbación, etc.) y en ocasiones me han hecho sexo oral.

Sin embargo hace 10 días tuve sexo con un desconocido. Él me penetró; utilizó condón y un lubricante que me dijo era a base agua. El acto no duró mucho tiempo, él terminó en el condón. Según yo el preservativo no se rompió y ni él ni yo tocamos nuestros fluidos. Después yo me revisé el ano y no había sangre ni nada por el estilo.

He buscado información en la red y todas apuntan a conductas de alto riesgo cuando el sexo anal es sin protección, pero no he encontrado información sobre el riesgo que existe cuando la penetración anal es con condón.

Mi duda es si en relaciones como la que describo anteriormente hay algún riesgo de la enfermedad. Yo pienso que el condón no se rompió, pues no sentí nada y el chavo tampoco dijo nada de ello, pero en el supuesto, ¿qué tanto riesgo existe si eso sucedió?

Soy algo nervioso y la verdad quisiera saber mi condición y en todo caso, si el realizar prácticas sexuales de este tipo son seguras.

De antemano mil gracias por su atención y nuevamente me disculpo si mis preguntas se pueden responder con la información general sobre la prevención del virus.

Saludos y excelente día.

I think blood in an apple is airtight as blood in syringe,why syringe can infectious and apple is can't?

Wrong . HIV is far to fragile to transmitted in that manner . Avoiding HIV is low tech ... use condoms for anal and vaginal sex correctly and consistently and do not shoot dope after an infected person and are safe .
