Resul,

You've been coming here for nearly five years now. We have explained to you again and again what is and what is not a risk for hiv infection. It's about time you started applying what you've learned here to what happens in your life.

What is important is whether or not you use a condom for anal or vaginal intercourse. Whatever else happens does not matter. It really, really, REALLY is that simple!

Please read and re-read your entire thread. There's nothing more we can tell you. We're not here to hold your hand every time you have a sexual experience. As long as you use a condom, you are protected against hiv.

If you haven't already (after five years, you should have by now), read through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms correctly and with confidence. The Condoms Are A Girl's Best Friend link is particularly informative, and it is available in quite a few different languages. Get reading - the webpages linked to in my signature line and your entire thread as well.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. IT REALLY IS THAT SIMPLE!!!

I am also going to warn you that if you continue to return here without any real cause for concern about HIV, you are going to find yourself either getting a Time Out or being banned from the site.

HIV is not your problem. Get professional help if you need it because we cannot provide that for you in this setting. Since you are planning to marry it would be a good step for your future life to get your problems sorted out with a professional.

Resul,

I cannot believe that in the five years you've been a member here, that you do not yet know our rules. Absolutely NO excuse for that - but yet just the other day I had to delete a post you left in a thread where you are not permitted to post and now this morning I find you've been sending PMs to other members as well.

Not only have I removed your PM privilege, but I'm also giving you a LONG over-due time out.

Do not attempt to create a new account to get around your time out because if you do, you will be permanently banned.

Resul,

There are no symptoms you can point at and say "that's definitely being caused by primary hiv infection".

Neither symptoms nor even the lack of symptoms will ever tell you a single thing about your hiv status. ONLY testing will.

Many people who have herpes are plagued by herpes outbreaks when they're stressed. It isn't a sign of hiv infection.

« Reply #57 on: August 21, 2013, 01:05:19 PM »
sorry i am writing here but i can not post English forum :(
yesterday i had a sex with a girl . she was top on me and want to have sex without condom but i would not . we were naked and rubbing . then  wear my trousers and  we rubbed too much . then she get a condom and we start to mak sex protected .
after te sex i saw too many blood on condom . and take it of . and clean everywhere .

when i come home i saw a cut on my penis i though it happen because of rubbing.

my question is that : if her blood touch the  MY FRESH OPEN WOUND  while i taking of the condom is that a risk ? sorry  sorry i am asking and asking again but in my country forums says that: it is a risk you have to get test.

Resul , the reason you couldn't post here was because after 3 post you must buy a subscription to continue posting . The information is at the top of this forum , read it .

Do not post outside of this tread again .
