Scared,

No, it is not possible for you to become infected with hiv because you handled a condom after use, cuts or no cuts on your hand.

Successful hiv transmission occurs INSIDE the human body, as in unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse. Condoms have been proven to be very effective when it comes to preventing hiv transmission, and this is despite the fact that they are handled afterwards by people who may have cuts on their hand.

As you're new here, I'll give you some general information. Please also read through the Welcome Thread and follow the links found there.

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 STIs together. To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with a sexually transmitted infection.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

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.

You did NOT have a risk of hiv infection in the situation you describe.

You've got a mix of questions there.

As far as HIV is concerned receiving oral from anyone is nil for risk. Giving oral is at the very low end of the risk scale and more theoretical than actual.

Other STDs can be passed orally so if you are having symptoms or are sexually active getting a full panel of STD tests done regularly is a good idea. By that I mean at least annually. Twice a year is even better and if you are having symptoms then doing it now is recommended.

Scared, if you had taken the time read our Welcome Thread you'd know that you should keep all your questions in your original thread.

Please don't start a new thread for every question or thought that pops into your head.

scared,

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.

You need to assume anyone you have intercourse with is hiv positive until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship and have tested negative TOGETHER with them. To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with a sexually transmitted infection.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

You don't need to wear a condom for getting a blowjob because hiv is NOT transmitted in this way.

Can somebody tell me what a sex worker is i guess im dumb.

I just read where hiv is transmitted inside the human body and not outside so i guess im ok because my encounter was not inside.I had the condom on but i never put it inside of her.I did touch the outside of her vigina she was probably wet but i never went inside of her.I possibly did have a dry skin crack on my hand at the time and i did take the condom off with my hand there could have been some of her juices on the condom but if it is transmitted inside the body then i guess i am ok hopefully.

OK, you're still worrying with absolutely no basis for it in HIV science. No kidding.

A "sex worker" is someone who charges for having sex with you. A professional.

Have you read the lessons on Transmission and Testing which can be found in a link in the first thread in this section? You will get all the basic information there that you need. By consistently following safer sex guidelines you can enjoy your sexuality, protect your health and be spared all the totally unnecessary worrying you have been putting yourself through.

Now, take a good deep breath, let it go and get on with your life.

Cheers,
