HIV Prevention and Testing > Am I Infected?

Fingers...........from Condom to Jewel

(1/3) > >>

Hi there, I'm a 25 year old guy mailing in from India. About 13 weeks ago i had a sexual encounter with a girl of unknown status...well we had unprotected Oral, followed by Vaginal intercourse....i used 2 condoms...however i've read topis on the forum earlier & kinda happy to know that unprotected insertive Oral had low risk of Transmission, anyways after the Vaginal intercourse she removed my condoms with her fingers & the about 30 seconds later touched my jewel with those same fingers...& again gave me an Oral. Well i have had balinitis before & there were some small ulcerations on my penis.....Do u think that any vaginal secretions from her fingers after touching the condoms could have infected me with HIV or the fact that the small ulcerations on the penis coming in contact with her saliva could pose a threat.....
I've done PCR tests at 12 days & 33 days, both are negative...i do plan to get tested again...Please help me...what are chances of being free????

Andy Velez:
Abhi, you read it wrong. Being given oral by someone is not low risk. It's beyond low risk. In the entire course of the epidemic there has never been a confirmed case of transmission in this manner. And you aren't going to make history by becoming the first. No, not even because you had whatsis on your "jewel" and she had vaginal secretions on her fingers.

Like you, everyone who worries about getting a blowjob is certain the particular details of their incident make them the exception in the situation. Wrong. Like I said, you were not at risk and there was no need for testing since you had used a condom for intercourse. Keep on doing that everytime. They provide excellent protection.

Although the PCR was not designed for diagnostic purposes I can tell you that a negative at 28 days or more is good as gold. If there had been a real risk, and this wasn't one, you would still need to test at 13 weeks to confirm the earlier result. In this case I don't think re-testing is necessary since you weren't at risk, but that choice is up to you.

This is not an HIV situation.

Cheers,

Hey Andy thanx for that real quick reply.....Yeah i was mainly concerned as i had some ulcerations on the penis & because she touched the head of the penis with her fingers.....not really the opening for the urethra & then me an Oral, so i thought that if there were Secretions if any could have caused a Potent Threat....Moreover she had a couple of pimples on her face & that kinda got me tense...i know i may sound stupid but u know how the mind thinks when one leads to another.....Yeah i will get tested i guess once more to remove all doubts.....& i also wanted to know if use of antibiotics would supress or deviate PCR results. I'm not on any sort of PEP, but i was prescribed a few antibiotics recently for a throat infection & a flu like feeling.....i underwent a RNA PCR 33 days post exposure (Qualitative)....which read HIV RNA Amplicons Absent......so please just one more assurance would make me go woo - hoo...thanx Andy & God Bless!

abhishekmenon:
Hi again...sorry had just a couple more doubts........what is the possibility of contracting hiv if there was blood in her saliva...i wasn't really aware in the moment of ecstacy.....& does a post 28 day PCR check for both HIV 1 & HIV 2...& all the substrains????? Please do reply to my concern when free..& thanx!
