Quick test question reguarding oral sex
« on: May 31, 2007, 11:47:45 AM »
I'll try to keep this PG-13 if I can.  Got oral sex from a girl of unknown status, No actual sex.  I messed around with her with my fingers for a while, she then removes my hand and sucks on my fingers and continues oral.  I consede that oral sex is not worth testing but does this warrant anything. Sorry if this sounds like a cheap sex mag.  Thanks

You need to keep all your questions in your original thread.  Click show own posts and post it there please.

With 68 posts and your history, you should KNOW THIS already. And i'm sure you do.

Actually, I have no idea where that thread is as it was back in June of last year and was a totally different situation.  I tried to look for it for 4 minutes and gave up.

See your name on the left side of this screen?

See the links that say, PM, Show Unread, Show Replies and SHOW OWN POSTS.  Yeah, thats where ya click.

And you were here in November.  And it doesnt matter if the situation is different, you need to keep them in the same thread and then we will answer your current questions.

AND none of what I said now matters!  Thanks Andy LOL!

No risk in your situation this time scared.  Use condoms for intercourse and you wont have to worry about HIV.

Scared, I decided not to try to merge your previous threads because they are so lengthy. However, keep all future comments and other in this same thread. Thanks for your cooperation.

As for your question this time, there was absolutely no risk to you for HIV transmission in that situation. Since you've been around here at length previously, you ought to be familiar with our Transmission lesson which gives you all the basics. I suggest re-reading it so that you don't spend time needlessly worrying about this kind of non-risk incident.

There's a link to the Transmission lesson in the Welcome thread which opens this section.

Cheers,
Andy Velez

I just sucked it up for my annual test and I feel like my mind is playing tricks on me.  I seem to always return to a place I vow never to return.  I have a lot of small things that feel like they add up to a risk factor. Here's my list.

1: fingering deep kissing with girl I barely knew - not too concerned

2:  Received long unprotected oral sex 2 days later with finger licking off an on while she was fingered. - little concerned

3:  got nasty fever next day after 2,  3 days after 1.  Felt crummy a couple of weeks later after returning from Disneyworld.

4:  Received LONGGGG oral sex with rimming from a girl I hardly knew. - little concerned.

5:  Condom break/girl period with 5 month neg - Still weighs on my mind.

As I sit and wait for my results my mind is racing back and forth at each senerio weight the odds of it all.   The test is running a little late which has me on the side or worried.  Do little things add up to big risks?

Straight,

You've been with us long enough to know that HIV transmission doesn't work this way. A whole lot of little non-risks don't add up to one big risk. The add up to, well, a whole lot of little non-risks.

Except for the condom break - 5 month negative thing. That's a big CONCLUSIVE NEGATIVE RESULT.

Nothing you did presents a risk of HIV transmission. You don't need to test as a result of these things.

Mtd, I only went because I've heard the mods here say that anyone who is sexually active should annual routine HIV tests..  Now to no surprise I'm back to skerd mode.

I understand that Straight. Annual testing is recommended because it's a good habit for sexually active people to get into. Much like getting your car serviced regularly. Please note that we recommend full STD screening not just HIV testing on an annual or six monthly basis.

Just because we recommend such screening doesn't mean we're saying you've had a specific risk. You haven't.
