Ravenx,

You had protected sex and as such there is no risk of HIV transmission from what you describe. And yes, I'm aware that you touched your penis after touching the outside of the used condom. That doesn't constitute a risk for HIV infection.

All sexually active people should have a full STD screen at least once a year. Twice is better. A full screen will include an HIV antibody test. There are STD's which are more prevalent and easier transmit than HIV. If it's been a while since your last full STD screen or if you've not had one before, you might consider making an appointment to do so with your doctor or local clinic.

Please note that I don't think you need to have a full screen because of any specific risk behaviour, rather it's a good habit for sexually active people to get into.

Also you should take the time to read our Welcome Thread which contains links to our lessons on HIV transmission and testing.

Regards,

MtD

Matty is 100% correct on this one.  You were protected.  Kudos to you!  Keep using protection and you wont have to worry about HIV.

Pimples happen on penises for all sorts of reasons. That's in no way something HIV-related.

If you are concerned about it I suggest you discuss it with your doctor. The important thing as far as HIV is concerned is that you used a condom for intercourse. Keep on doing that everytime. You were not at risk for HIV in this incident. Period. End of story.

Cheers,
Andy Velez

What part of "You Did Not Have A Risk" is it that you don't understand? You didn't need to test the first time nor do you need to retest.

Testing for no-risk encounters seems like a waste of time and money, but if they're your time and money to waste, go ahead.

Raven,

You are conclusively hiv negative and you do not need further testing over this no risk incident. Here's how to ensure you remain hiv negative in the future:

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. To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with a sexually transmitted infection. Sex with a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through all three condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

While you do not need further hiv testing at this time, 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.

Use condoms and protect your negative hiv status. It really is that simple.

You will not get infected with little cuts or bruising on your penis for oral sex.
