ali,

Kissing is NOT a risk for hiv. Having pimples, whether they bleed or not, is also not a risk for hiv infection.

Please read through the Welcome Thread and follow the links for further information on how hiv is and is not transmitted.

Just want to add a few words on to what Ann has said. Your entry reads to me as if you are a young person who's just beginning to become sexually active. If I'm correct about that then this is the perfect time for you to become more informed about the real issues of HIV transmission. So please get to the link she suggests and you will get the basics you need to know.

That way you can enjoy your sexuality, protect your health and spare yourself a lot of unnecessary worry.

Cheers,

No, you weren't at risk for HIV from that broken glass. 

Read the lesson on transmission. The link to it is in the welcome thread which opens this section.

Hello

I wanna ask questions again , please answer me

1- If when I shaving the hairs near the base of penis I wound my body (close to the base of penis) , how long I should wait till the wound become a closed wound and doesn't cause HIV transmission during sex?

2- At present the only resort for having sex to me  is sex with prostitutes and fear of breaking condom caused me to avoid sex (It happened to me before but fortunately my penis was not in her I was playing with her body) now my question is that does condom breaking happened is common if I use it proper ? In your Idea is it better to me to avoid sex with prostitutes ? Is my anxiety intellectual ?

3- If I fuck a prostitute breast , is it necessary  that I use condom ?


thank you

1. You wouldn't contract HIV in that manner.
2. Condoms don't fail if properly used.
3. No.

Hello RepidRod

About your answer to question 1
Quote
1. You wouldn't contract HIV in that manner.
I didn't get your mean clearly , does it mean that  HIV doesn't transmit by wound close to the base of penis ? And it's not necessary I wait till the sores refined ?

And I wanna ask one  question more

4. If I stick my finger into vagina or ass of a prostitute or who has HIV , does it have risk of HIV for me ?

thanks

And no, having a cut from shaving near the base of your penis is not a risk for HIV transmission. Such cuts begin closing virtually immediately even though to the naked eye it still appear to be open.

You are worrying needlessly and there's no need for testing nor for further concern.

Hi RapidRod

I visited this site http://aids.about.com/cs/safesex/a/oralsex.htm but it says Oral sex has risk
And I saw in this forum http://www.medhelp.org/posts/HIV-Prevention/cut-on-the-base-of-penis-hiv-risk/show/720834 that it says that
Quote
In theory, a fresh cut on the penis would increase the risk of HIV transmission through vaginal sex

But I don't know how long a fresh sore takes to become a close sore

can you say to me ?

In the entire history of the HIV epidemic there has never been a single confirmed case of transmission to a guy through his having received oral sex. It's safe to say you aren't going to make history by becoming the first.

I can promise you that if you continue to search the net you will find "information" there that will feed your worst fears. And all to no good purpose. We're not going to bother responding about what you pick up from other websites. We are very careful in our responses which are grounded in HIV-science.

You did not have a risk for HIV. Use condoms consistently for vaginal and anal intercourse and you will be well protected against the sexual transmission of HIV. It's just that simple. So stop complicating it by scaring yourself. Get on with your life.

ali,

You have been coming here for four years now and you still haven't learned that condoms have been proven to prevent hiv infection? It doesn't matter if menstrual blood is present or not, they still protect.

However, given your apparent phobia where hiv is concerned, perhaps it would be better for you to wait until her period is over - strictly for your own peace of mind, not because of any increased risk.

the Condom is short
« Reply #18 on: April 22, 2011, 07:04:57 AM »
Hi

I wanna ask a question

If condom is short or tight does it increase the risk of HIV ?
for example if about 5cm near the base of penis remains uncovered does it increase the risk for me ?
Finding large condom in Iran is hard so I have to use regular size condoms

Thank you

ali,

The skin at the base of your penis is just the same as the skin on any other part of your body and hiv is NOT spread through skin to skin contact or even body fluid to skin contact.

What the condom needs to protect is the head of your penis as this is the only place on your penis where hiv can latch on to the very few, very specific types of cells that it is able to infect.

As long as the head of your penis is covered by the condom, you are protected against hiv infection.
