received unprotected blow job
« on: October 31, 2008, 12:13:08 PM »
hi my dear everyone, thanks for your invaluable reply with patience.
I've read the welcome thread already, and know it's no risk for getting  a blowjob.

But I still have some doubt in my case: I received unprotected blow job from a HIV positive lady(confirm the lady is HIV positive) one month ago. After one week, I had some tetter in my thigh and hand, it last about 10 days, the tetter has been disappear. And haven't any other symptom.

I want to know for my situation, the lady was confirm a HIV positive. Am I still safe and no risk to infect HIV for received unprotected blow job from her? Is it necessary to have a test for HIV for my case?

Hope can receive your reply soon.

The fact that the woman who gave you the blowjob is totally irrelevant in terms of any HIV transmission risk.

Now, read this carefully and really take it in: in the entire history of the epidemic and uncountable numbers of blowjobs later, there has never been a single confirmed case of transmission on that manner. It's safe to say, your fears notwithstanding, that you aren't going to be making history by becoming the first. No way, no how.

Give it up and get on with your life. Just remember to be sure to always use a condom for vaginal or anal intercourse. As long as you do that in terms of sexual risks for HIV you will be well protected.

Cheers.

hi Andy, thanks for your quick reply.
you means no matter the woman is hiv positive, it's no transmission risk from getting a blowjob from her, right?
And for the tetter in my thigh and hand, it's not the relation with HIV?

Jacky,

When hiv risk assessments are given in this forum, it's always under the assumption that the other person is hiv positive.

Not one person has ever been infected through getting a blowjob and you will not be the first.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple. Read through all three condom and lube links in my signature so you can use them with confidence.

Jacky,

NO. You do not need to test over a blowjob.

However, if you've ever had unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse with ANYONE, then you should test at three months or more past that incident.

Again, you do NOT need to test over a blowjob. Blowjobs are not a risk for hiv infection.
