Got HIV from Blow Job , Protected ??? STD ? Help..Scared
« on: May 27, 2008, 06:14:23 PM »
Few days ago, I had a protected oral ( received ) from a CSW. Nothing else that is it...Next day, I started feeling burning sensation around the pelvic area and thigh area when I urinate and when I don't.

Did I catch HIV or STD ? I am scared.

I used a condom. I thought you can't get anything if you have a condom on ?

What are my chance ?

I went to a doc today and he did a swab for chal and gonno.

He says its may be prostate infection, and not chal and gonno.

Any idea ?

I have no discharge, I do feel urge to go use the bathroom, and constant feeling of burning in the pelvic area.

Any idea ?

Please Help

Whatever your problems are, are unrelated to HIV. You were never at risk for contracting HIV in the situation you provided.

We can't diagnose your symptoms here. That's what you have a doctor and it sounds like he's checking things out appropriately.

As far as HIV is concerned, it's a non-issue in relation to this incident. Even if you hadn't worn a condom it would not have been a risk for HIV transmission. In the entire history of the epidemic there's never been a confirmed case of transmission to a guy via his getting a blowjob. Not one and you won't make history by becoming the first.

Other stds are easier to acquire so we always recommend that anyone who's sexually active ought to have a full STD panel done at least once a year.

It sounds to me like your doctor has nailed it as being a prostate (or possibly urinary tract) infection. Follow up with him. Whatever it is it isn't HIV and that's all we're about here.

Cheers,
Andy Velez

Help,

Bacteria are everwhere. EVERYWHERE! They remain infectious in the environment. Hiv does not.

Your doctor already told you it was unlikely to be gonorrhea or chlamydia - so don't assume you got it through your encounter.

You did NOT have a risk for hiv infection. Even if you didn't use a condom for getting a blowjob it would not have been a risk. Getting a blowjob is NOT  a risk for hiv infection.

Come on, am I suppose to buy that. Everyone keeps mentioning that HIV is safe , you can't get it if you use Condom this and that...Then how did I get it ?

Think about it, I used a condom for a blow job, and guess what, I got a Bacteria UTI infection or chalmediay or gonorreha, or whatever you want to call it.

How ??? Condom used ??? How ???

I don't get anything infection, when I do it with my finance ?

THis was a CSW, so I did get HIV.

I am scared, shit less scared.

I have no one to go through this.

Help.

Help,

You did NOT get hiv from getting blown. No way, no how. Bacterial infections are something totally different and I suggest you talk to your doctor about bacterial infections.

Not one person has ever become infected from getting a blowjob and you will NOT be the first.

Why do some web site mention that getting oral sex is a way to get HIV.

Even my doctor said that.

I don't understand .

Ask your doctor and ask the other websites.

Hey dude, calm down. ... we are all nervous and we just need to help each other.

I used a condom and still came down with HIV.. I mean, who gets infected with a condom and gets a UTI and Prostate infection from it. I used a condom. .. So HIV is  there and I got it.

In addition, I see people on the board are having sex with hookers 5 times without condom and sill get away with it.

How lucky are these people... Me,  I get infected with a condom. From low risk.

I feel fatigue, can't breath, heart beats quick, feel blood is flowing quick through my head and eyes, eyes are red, BURNING Thigh and Pelvic, Crmaping Pain, Burning after urination.

Come on from a  """' CONDOM BLOW JOB ****...HOW ???

HOW HIV ???

Just back right up there Kiddo.

How do you know you're HIV positive? Have you received a positive test result which has been confirmed by additional testing? If not then you don't know your HIV status. You cannot use symptoms to determine your HIV status.

As has been noted you cannot contract HIV from a protected blow job.

Matty,

No, I did not receive my test results. But check this out.... How did a freaking bacteria enter my penis with a condom on ?

sorry if I am being so pissed, is because I am.

I am scared, nervous, and almost married.

So, pretty scared... yes, I made a mistake, and I don't know hat to do.

Listen, just cut the drama right now. I'm not as gentle a touch as some of the others around here and I'm not going to put up with your hysterical carry on. So just pull yourself together, ok?

There are many ways bacteria could have found it's way into your penis and it's something to discuss with your doctor.

As you have been told, HIV you cannot get HIV from receiving a blow-job, condom or otherwise. If that's all you've done then you won't have been infected with HIV.

If you can't accept our advice then get an HIV test 3 months from the date of this encounter and see for yourself. You'll be negative.

Thanks for the reassurance.

I read this on a web site like alice or something that "While there is documented risk when having oral sex with an HIV infected partner the risk is much less than with anal or vaginal intercourse."

Is that true  ?

Another quote "I spoke with one man who believed he became infected with HIV by getting a blow job. He told me that he had a history of picking up STDs in the past from insertive oral sex, claiming to have been infected with urethral gonorrhea this way, as well. We can speculate that either due to his genetics, immune system, or some other biological factors, he was not sufficiently resistant to STDs, including HIV, when exposed during insertive oral sex."

Is that true as wel?

I have genetics that picks up everything

We're not in the habit of rebutting misinformation that people drag in here from other unnamed websites.

We have answered your questions. HIV is not transmitted via protected blowjobs. You do not need to test. If you'd taken the time to read our Welcome Thread like you're supposed to you would have read this:

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.

Ya dig?

Help,

Do not send me or other AIDSmeds experts PMs seeking advice or asking for assistance with your issues. If you have questions you must ask them here in your thread.

It's all explained in this thread.

Thank you,

Help,

Not only have you already reached your posting limit by excessively posting over a NO RISK situation, but you're violating posting guidelines by PMing other members with your questions.

You did NOT become infected with hiv through getting a blowjob. Talk to your doctor about how easily one can get bacterial infections. They are NOT the same as hiv.

I'm giving you the time out Matty warned you about. Do not attempt to create a new account to get around your time out because if you do, you will be permanently banned.
