recently had a threesome and am scared. Should I be worried?
« Reply #2 on: Today at 07:24:22 PM »
I made a mistake and was involved in a threesome with a couple that I met from online. I was invited to their home and we had two cups of vodkas and threesome eventually started. His wife sat between us and gave handjobs to both of us. Then, couple started licking each  other on 69 position while I was standing behind them. The guy grabbed bottom side of my genital and put my dick into her. I was inside her for first 5seconds and pulled right away and brought condom and put it on my genital. We exchanged position and she gave me oral sex ( I wasn't wearing condom during oral sex)  while her hubby penetrated her without condoms on. He pulled away and I penetrated her with condom on my genital and ejaculated on tissue.  In summary, I was unprotected for first 5 seconds inside her and during 10-14mins unprotected oral sex. I did not have any physical connetions with the other guy. I started to have a sore throat after two days but I think it might be just related to my health problem since I have walked under rain for 20 mins for two days and have not slept well two weeks prior to exposure because of work. Are there any chances of getting STD/HIV out of this? So far I have no symptoms beside sore throat and my throat has been getting better. I was in panic so I TEXTED them few days ago and he told me they both are very clean, but I heard some people might be not aware of their status. I told them I was worried because they didn't use condoms and he told me he does not usually use since she can't get pregnant and it takes away his senstaion. I am very scared because I heard oral sex has a low risk, but maybe his precum could have impacted me as well. From what I know, he didn't ejaculate at all. P.S: I licked her boobs, but not her genital for safety reason

Oral sex is not a risk for infection, so no worries there.  Your brief unprotected intercourse is considered as "dipping" and while it represents a risk, the risk is lower for the insertive partner.  If you want to test, you can test 6 weeks past this incident and then at 12 weeks to confirm the result.

If you have not had an HIV test, now would be a good time to start.  A full STI/HIV panel should be done at least once per year and more frequently if you are sexually active.  It's the right thing to do for a responsible sexual adult.

Thanks for your answer Joe. I plan to get tested 3~4 weeks after exposure just to have a peace in my mind. I head new rapid hiv testing can figure out the result in 20mins with 99% accuarcy. is it correct? I will surely take another confirm test after 12weeks too. They say they use following tests: We use the Uni-Gold™ Recombigen® HIV-1/2 Test. During HeyDenver testing times, we use either the Uni-Gold™ Recombigen® HIV-1/2 or you may request the The OraQuick ADVANCE® Rapid HIV-1/2 Antibody Test.
We use the The OraQuick® HCV rapid test for HEPATITIS C TESTING.

Yes, there are tests that can give results as early as three weeks and you can read about testing here: http://www.aidsmeds.com/articles/HIVtests_5029.shtml
