This narcissistic self-involvement of yours is something we're not going to indulge you in any further.

You've run out of warnings. You're now on a 30 day time out.

Grow up and get on with your life.

hi. i received my negative test result for my cunnilingus incident and it was negative  ;D i just recently became sexually active with a guy of unknown status. however, we used condoms but we're not sure if it was used properly. we engaged in anal sex & used saliva as a lubricant. (his saliva). i was concerned that the whole penis wasn't covered by the condom. i performed oral on him with a condom. today we had vaginal sex with a condom, however, i was nervous that there was a leakage because i felt wetness and moisture as we were having sex. i was nervous some of his semen/fluid dripped out of the condom. we used a condom for all acts but i hear they're not 100% and people have become infected despite condom use during intercourse. do i need to be tested for having sex with a condom (taking into account it might have not been used properly)?

Brit,

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.

I hope you've stopped using your family's toothbrushes to masturbate with.

Condoms have been proven to prevent hiv infecion. Read through the three condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use them with confidence.

You have not had a risk for hiv infection.

Don't even think about bringing more ancient articles of hiv mis-information like you did before your time out.

No, you don't need to get tested. And don't mistake this response as an invitation for you to come up with some more details that we should consider.

What I do suggest is that you having sex of any sort until you can handle the feelings you have around it. It's really simple. Don't put a guy's dick in your mouth if you're going to go into a state everytime afterwards.

Preventing HIV transmission is not a complicated matter as you can see if you re-read the lessons and what others have told you here. Your real problem seems to be anxiety around sex and something of an addiction to drama. Those are issues we can't resolve for you here.

If I sound out of patience with you it's because I am. Drop the drama and get on with your life.

Britney,

Whether or not someone is HIV+ is none of your damn business. The only thing that matters here is that you're HIV negative. As you've been told repeatedly you need to move on from this.

We cannot help you any further. If you're having difficulty coping with your fears regarding HIV infection then you should seek the assistance of an appropriately qualified mental health professional.

Brit-

It's called OCD, and there are meds that are really effective.

Brit,

There's nothing new we can tell you. Re-read your thread, our answers are NOT going to change.

You're quickly headed for a second time out, which will be for two months.

We cannot provide you with the emotional health care you need. You need to make an appointment with a mental health care professional for that.

Please consider yourself warned.

i read everything on the site. im a little confused about something else. i read something about breast feeding. i had a guy suck and bite on my nipples, is this an HIV risk? he did bite kind of hard & my nipples were irritated and sort of cut for my bra. i have heard of HIV transmission from human bites so im not sure if this applies?

Good lord!

Britney, the risk of HIV transmission via breast feeding is from infected mother to child and it happens very rarely. You're not going to contract HIV because your boyfriend has nibbled on your titty in a moment of passion. There has NEVER been a case of HIV transmission as a result of a human bite.

But we've been through all of this stuff with you previously. It doesn't matter how many scenarios you come back to us with, our answers SIMPLY WILL NOT CHANGE.

Really it's time that you took some responsibility for your own problems and sought the assistance of a mental health worker. We cannot provide you with support you need. I note that you've already been warned about incessant posting by Ann and I'm reporting this to the Moderators.

Get some help dear.

Brit,

I see you ignored my warning to you.

I'm giving you a two month time out. Attempt to create a new account to get around your time out and you will be permanently banned.

Please, get yourself some professional help.

And by the way, you might also want to use your time out to brush up on your reading skills. I have yet to read information on the risk of transmission via breastfeeding that wasn't clear about the risk being to a suckling infant.
