stupid mistake
« on: March 08, 2008, 02:25:36 PM »
I was with a girl and I began to attempt to finger her. She pulled my hand back and FOR SOME REASON i stuck my fingers in my mouth.She then told me she was on her period. I did not taste anything and it was very quick but do i need to test. My other concern is that I have a fear this girl might of had a sex change. would there be precum in sugically made vagina. Was there any risk from me sticking my fingers in mouth. Sorry about this.

Fingering is not a risk for HIV transmission. It doesn't matter if you put your fingers in this girl's mouth afterwards or if she was having her period. It makes no difference.

You were not at risk of contracting HIV and you don't need to test as a result of this encounter.

My other concern is that I have a fear this girl might of had a sex change. would there be precum in sugically made vagina.

I don't know why you would think this girl is a transsexual, but in any event, it's irrelevant. Please take the time to read our Welcome Thread and follow the links to our Lessons to learn more about how HIV is and is not transmitted.

That's right. Sticking your finger in your mouth after fingering woman who is or claims to be having her period is not a risk for HIV transmission.

Your saliva has natural elements/proteins which disable HIV, IF it is even present. HIV needs the kind of receptive setting provided by a vagina or the anus during INTERCOURSE to be transmitted. Fingering doesn't provide that setting. You are worrying needlessly. There's no need for testing. Just make sure you always use a condom when you have intercourse.

Cheers,

I have a new event. I was with a female and had protected vaginal sex. My problem is that there was a cyst where my pubic hair is above my penis. The condom was intact. The cyst was a red lump and vaginal discharge got in the pubic where where the cyst was. Is this a risk or can i forget about this since I had protected sex.

Bumps, lumps, cuts, bruises, nicks and various other on your skin would not have made you vulnerable to HIV transmission.

The key thing is that you used a condom for intercourse. Way to go! As long as you keep doing that consistently you'll be ok as far as sexual transmission of HIV.

I am really going crazy about this. Last night I was with a friend and we got jumped. We were both hit in the mouth and bled quite a bit. We had two plates of food at my home. We were both kind of drunk and shared the food. My friend put his food in the fridge and a few minutes later I ate some with his fork. My fear is that through the food or fork I got his blood in my wounded mouth. Is this a risk do I need to test sorry for the question but im freaking out.

Read our lesson on Transmission. No, none of your latest details and misadventure put you at risk for HIV.

You're beginning to convince me that you might benefit from seeing a counselor or other professional to discuss your excessive and unwarranted concerns about HIV.

Glass and condom
« Reply #13 on: June 12, 2008, 11:08:22 AM »
I am not sure about this please help. This morning was moving trash bags. As I was moving the bags a shard of glass from a beer bottle cut my leg causing it to bleed. I opened the bag to look at the bottle. Right next to bottle was a used condom that my friend had used from the night before. I am worried that the glass had bodily fluids on it sense the condom was right on it. Is this a risk. Please help

mental,

Hiv is a very fragile virus that quickly becomes damaged when it is outside the human body. Once it becomes damaged, it cannot be transmitted. This is why hiv is primarily spread through unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse. It is NOT spread from surfaces out in the environment.

As long as you are not having unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse or sharing needles with anyone, you are not putting yourself at risk for hiv.

READ the Transmission Lesson linked to in the Welcome Thread. If you keep coming back with these ultra-basic transmission questions, you'll be timed out.

Perhaps it's time for you to seek counseling so you can get to the bottom of your hiv fears. We cannot help you with that here.

You did not have penetrative sex and you were never at risk of contracting HIV. No you do not need to test for HIV.

mental,

The area where hiv hangs out in a woman's vagina is deep inside. If you were deep inside, you would have known. I really don't think you have anything to worry about where hiv is concerned in this instance.

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 SPECIFIC 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, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple.
