You were never at risk. Take time to read the lesson on transmission. You can find the link in the "Welcome" thread.

Gooner,

Getting a blowjob is NOT a risk for hiv infection, no matter what sort of spin you want to put on it. Forget about the whole blood in the mouth thing. Unless you punched this guy in the mouth before the blowjob, there could not have been enough blood present to pose even a remote risk to you.

Not one person has EVER been infected through getting a blowjob and you will not be the first.

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 sexually transmitted infections together. To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. 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.

Although you do NOT need to test over this blowjob incident, 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 for anal or vaginal intercourse and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

gooner,

Symptoms, or even the LACK of symptoms, means absolutely NOTHING when it comes to hiv infection. What matters is whether or not you've had a risk, and you have NOT had a risk.

Show your rash to a doctor. We cannot possibly diagnose you over the internet and neither can anyone else.

You did NOT have a risk for hiv infection. No way, no how. Make sure condoms are being used for anal or vaginal intercourse and you won't have a risk in future either.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse and you will avoid hiv infection. It really, really, really is that simple!

Hello,
             I know that there is no risk in blow jobs, but just came here to confirm. Today I got a blow job from an unknown male and he bit my penis, but there was no visible bleeding. After that He inserted his finger in my urethra and dont remember if he gave me a blow job after that. Can you tell me if there is any risk involved in

Getting a blowjob, after he inserted his finger in my urethra and in the worst case, say he bit then. But yes there was no visible blood.

Also, just out of curiosity, suppose a woman is HIV+ and she has unprotected sex with a man, what are the chances that he gets infected, as in, is there any statistic? Coz I remember reading somewhere that the chances of getting infected with a one time peno-vaginal unprotected sex with a HIV+ person is as low as 1 in 100.

Regards,
Gooner.

In short order:  those statistics mean squat, so there's no point in discussing them.  They're pulled out of a hat, basically.  Mostly a sort of rhetorical dialogue.  You'd do best to disregard such talk.  No more useful than symptoms talk with regard to HIV.

OUCH.  He bit your dick and stuck his finger into the hole?  No, he's not going to be guilty of giving you HIV...just a bad blowjob.

No risk.

Is it the "N" or the "O" that's tripping you up in "No risk"?

Hello,

I had a sexual session yesterday and received a blow job for around 10 secs. I gave him a hand job too and then masturbated myself. The person is high risk male. Talked to a help line and he discouraged PEP, but I want to go ahead with it, primarily because I was very drunk yesterday and dont remember what happened exactly. But I am very very sure that I did not do or receive any anal sex.

Why cant I go for PEP, even if the risk is minute, I dont want to take a chance.

Regards,
Gooner.

PS : I am actually a very strong guy mentally, but right now am dying to talk to someone about it.

You didn't have an exposure and you sure don't need PEP.

Thanks, but why no PEP, I mean side effects are bad but HIV is worse right?

So it doesnt matter if his semen, comes in contact with my penis? Absolutely no risk?

Thanks and regards,

Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result or no-risk situation, will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). If you continue to post excessively after one Time Out, you may be given a second Time Out which will last eight weeks. There is no third Time Out - it is a permanent ban. The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.

Gooner,

NO! Nothing you did or had done to you was a risk for hiv infection and as Rodney pointed out, you certainly don't need PEP. PEP isn't something to be taken lightly.

Please go back and re-read your entire thread.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal INTERCOURSE and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple.

Thanks and peace. I will try to get over this worried well feeling. Anyway, you guys are doing a fantastic job, I can understand how stressful it gets to reply to hundreds of posts asking the same question again and again.
