Im terrified
« on: September 21, 2008, 12:53:11 AM »
Hello,

Last night I was with this prostitute. First she gave me blowjob with the condom on. Then I went on kissing her butt and her anus, and went a little bit kissing her vagina. And no I didn’t insert my tongue into her anus nor her vagina. But I am worried because this morning I noticed I had a really small tiny cut on my lower lip because I have quite a hobby of biting my lips, but the small tiny blood is already dried.

Then during that time I also had my penis rubbed on her vagina with the condom on. And no I didn’t put my penis into her vagina. Do I have a big risk of getting infected with HIV for these actions and do i need to get tested?

Sorry for my poor english guys.

Thank you.

Karl,

No, you didn't have a risk. Getting a blowjob, with or without a condom, is not a risk for hiv infection. Going down on a woman is also not a risk for hiv infection, even with a small cut on your lip.

Along with reading the Transmission Lesson linked to in our Welcome Thread, here's what you need to know in order to stay hiv negative:

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 ORAL 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.

ok, but is it still possible that i could still get infected with HIV if the fluid from her anus or vagina entered trough the small cut on my lower lip when i kissed her vagina and anus? not to mention i saw small tiny blood on the cut of my lip but it's already dried like long ago.

No. Nothing you have described puts you at risk for HIV transmission.

Even if you think you aren't going to be sexually active outside of marriage, read the lesson on Transmission anyway. We guys are all dawgs and with one thing and another sometimes find ourselves unexpectedly getting sexual.

As far as HIV transmission is concerned, it's really all about unprotected vaginal or anal intercourse. Everything else is theoretical rather than proven as far as risk is concerned. So keep those condoms handy and use one everytime you have intercourse.

Other STDs are easier to acquire, which is why we recommend regular checkups for anyone who's active sexually.

This time as you've been told, you were not at risk for HIV with anything you did.

Cheers,
Andy Velez
