Absolutely no chance of HIV from what you describe. You used condoms and fingering is no risk for HIV. Please read our Welcome Thread.

99,

You had no risk, as Matty points out. You did the right thing and used condoms. As hiv is primarily transmitted through unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse, keep using those condoms and you will avoid hiv infection. In addition to the Welcome thread, please also read through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use those condoms with confidence.

While you do NOT need to test over this specific incident, you need to know that 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.

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL STIs together.

Keep using those condoms and you'll be just fine. Condoms have been proven to be very effective when it comes to hiv prevention.

99,

When you find yourself that monogamous relationship, please make sure you test together for all STIs before the condoms come off. You can't go by what you think you know about someone, what they think they know about their hiv status, or how healthy they look. To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with a sexually transmitted disease. Use condoms until you know for certain.

Use condoms and avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple.

99,

Your use of spermicidal condoms does not change the fact that you had no risk.

At one time, it was believed that spermicide offered some additional protection against hiv transmission, but we now know that it doesn't. In fact, it can make it more likely but this is to the receptive partner only. Strictly speaking, it only increases the risk to someone who uses these condoms many times a day because spermicide can irritate the lining of the rectum and vagina with frequent use. So in the real world, the use of spermicidal condoms is only of concern to someone who uses condoms many times a day, every day. And no, for all of you other people reading this, it does NOT mean that you were at increased risk because you had intercourse with a sex worker while using a spermicidal condom. The risk is purely on the side of the receptive partner.

It is better to use a spermicidal condom than no condom at all.

You had no risk, you used a condom. Keep using those condoms and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple.

99,

As I've already told you, you don't need to test over this specific incident. However, if you are sexually active on a regular basis, you should be having routine checks at least once a year and twice a year is better if you are very active.

If you aren't already having these routine checks, then now is the time to start. A complete check-up will put your mind at rest over this incident and be the beginning of what should be a lifetime habit of good sexual health.

Let us know when you get that negative result - because that is what I am expecting. You should be too.

If you continue to have headaches, see your doctor about them. Whatever is causing them, (probably stress) it won't be hiv.

99,

KY jelly is a water-based lube and is one of the correct lubes to use with condoms. Please read through the condom and lube links in my signature line.

Condoms do NOT have "tiny holes". If you've read that somewhere, you've read a myth spread by people who don't want ANYONE to have intercourse outside of a traditional, heterosexual marriage - and they don't want them using condoms either.

The white stuff you saw, if inside the condom, was probably your own pre-cum. If it was outside, it would have been from the woman but the condom protected you from her fluids. That's why you wear condoms - to protect you and they do work. They have been scientifically proven to work in many studies.

You did not have a risk of hiv infection.

99, you were not at risk for HIV in any way in this recent incident.

However, there are other STDs out there, some of which can be contracted by skin to skin contact. In general we recommend that anyone who's sexually active should at least annually have a full STD panel done.

I'm just mentioning this as a precaution and not because I think there was any specific risk in the situation you described. There certainly was no risk for HIV.

Cheers,

not from receiving oral- getting a blowjob.

if the rubber busted, you'd know.   picture a balloon that's popped- same kinda result.  it isn't subtle.

you don't sound like you had any risk of HIV to me.

oh-  not sure if YOU busted...as in got a nut.  i thought you said not sure if IT busted...the condom.

first off,  i kinda find it hard to believe that you could not be sure if you had an orgasm or not.  i've never not been aware if i had one. 

yes, it is possible for semen to spill out the side of the condom if it doesn't stay rolled up to the base of the penis.

i believe you would be aware of both the orgasm and the leaked semen, though.

in any case, the girl would be the one with more cause for worry in that scenario than you would be.

I've merged your new thread into your original thread - where you should post all your additional thoughts or questions. It helps us to help you when you keep all your additional thoughts or questions in one thread.

If you need help finding your thread when you come here, click on the "Show own posts" link under your name in the left-hand column of any forum page.

Please also read through the Welcome Thread so you can familiarize yourself with our Forum Posting Guidelines. Thank you for your cooperation.

Nothing you bring to us today is a risk for hiv infection. Getting a blowjob is not a risk and neither is protected intercourse.

Have a look at the three condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use them with confidence. Use them correctly and consistently and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

You have been coming here for over a year now with the same questions, you have been told repeatedly you were never at risk, you do not have HIV and you have no reason to test for HIV...so what is your problem, if you are not going to listen to the experts here then there is not much else we can do for you...you need to move on now.

One more question regarding this and you will be given a serious Time out, as Matty said, if you had read the welcome thread you would know this...please consider this a warning.

Read all the replies you have been given so far and keep reading them until you understand..and if that doesn't help then read theWelcome Thread..again.

Whatever your problem is it's not HIV..go and talk to your doctor, if you refuse to listen this time or come back with the same question you will be given a 28 day TO..seriously you need to move on now, if you don't then that TO will be followed by a permanant ban.

You never had a risk for hiv infection. If you don't believe us, go test and collect your negative result. And get on with your life.

Hello ive been on these posts several times and i just want to say you guys do a amazing job helping people get through these thought times and i have a tremendous amount of respect for that and just would like to say thank you for being there!

Anyway i would like to breifly state my problem and hopefully get some encouraging feedback to get tested...me and my gf have been in a monogoumous relationship for over 2 years now and i know she is clean and the only thing ive done is unprotected oral and all my encounters have been protected vaginal.Recently we broke up  and in the time we were seperated she met a freind and they had unproteced vaginal on 2 seperate occasions.We got back and had sex unprocted vaginal couple times.I know before all of this we were hiv free.Now ive been in terror for almost 3 months thinking about this incident with her and just need some reassurance to get the test because at the moment im scared and very terrified..;( plz if u guys can shede some light i would appreciate this so very much ! again thank you

I've merged your latest thread with your previous one. Please follow our rule and keep all of your entries in this same thread.

The only time condoms can be dispensed with is when both parties are in agreement to be in a committed and monogamous relationship and test negative together at a reliable testing point. That means at 13 weeks past the most recent unprotected incident. Otherwise and until then you two should always be using condoms for intercourse.

You can if you wish test initially at 6 weeks past the most recent incident. Assuming you test negative you would still have to test again at 13 weeks. With a negative at 6 weeks the very strong likelihood is that you will continue to test negative.
