Hi I recently had some mutual masturbation play with a girl who then produced some ky lube/jelly and lubed my anus and stuck a finger in.Is it possible that the lube was tainted by previous use or on purpose to pass on hiv.I do not know the persons history

Jimmy,

No, there is absolutely NO risk in what you describe. Hiv is a fragile, difficult to transmit virus that does not remain able to infect when it is outside the human body.

Please read through the Welcome Thread and follow the Lessons links for further information.

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 STIs together. To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with a sexually transmitted infection.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

Jimmy,

The lube woulndn't be the right temperature, pH, or moisture level to keep hiv intact and able to infect. Hiv needs exacting conditions in order to remain viable. Lube does not fit the criteria.

However, Knowing your status is the single biggest tool you can have in your HIV toolbox. One doesnt have to have a fear of exposure to go test. 40+ million worldwide infected,90% dont even KNOW they are....

You absolutely do not need an HIV test in relation to the activities you have mentioned.

In general if you are sexually active it is a good idea to regularly have a full STD panel done. That means at least once a year and every six months is even better if you're very active.

But as far as this recent incident is concerned you don't have anything to be concerned about in terms of HIV nor any need to test.

Clear?

Yes its just that in my case I caught herpes years ago in an area on my shaft not normally covered by condoms.But in the latest incident I did not see any sore, tho some of her secretions may have got on the area where there had been one in the past.Would any of this make any difference

Jimmy,

As you asked me specifically, I'll answer and it's the same answer you have already had from aids2hiv and Andy; you do NOT need to test over this incident.

If you're sexually active and having intercourse, you should have sexual health care check ups regularly, even if you are consistently using condoms. This is because some of the other STIs are MUCH more easily transmitted than hiv. Regular check-ups are what responsible adults do - it's part of looking after your health.

Ann

PS - you replied again while I was typing... You do not need to worry about herpes when there is no lesion present. When you do have a lesion present, if it is in an area where the condom does not cover, you should abstain from sex until it is healed. This is not so much for your benefit as it is for the benefit of your partner. It is your responsibility to ensure your herpes infection stops with you. Don't risk spreading your herpes to your partners. If the condom doesn't cover it, don't have sex until it's cleared up. OK?

Jimmy,

No lesion = no worries.

Lesion = no sex if the condom doesn't cover.

For information on other STIs, check out the inSPOT website. One word of caution - While the inSPOT website has excellent information on the other STIs, their hiv information sucks. Don't bother with it, stick with AIDSmeds for your hiv information. Here we go by the most current and up-to-date fact surrounding all aspects of hiv - while many other websites do not. (and don't ask me why because I haven't a clue)

So if you do have a lesion is there a risk from hiv from oral sex (ie sore on lip )or protected sex (sore on penis not covered by condom)

By the way was my KY tube syringe example crazy!

Jimmy,

Getting a blowjob is not a risk for hiv infection no matter what. Saliva is not infectious. However, you shouldn't allow anyone to suck you when you have a herpes lesion present - because you will pass herpes on to them.

Giving oral sex with a herpes lesion on your lip? You shouldn't be doing that either for the same reason - you'll give the person herpes. Considering this, you don't need to worry about hiv infection this way. Understand? If you have an active herpes lesion you should NOT be letting it come into contact with another person. EVER. If you follow this simple rule, you won't have to worry AT ALL about a herpes lesion being a route for hiv transmission.

Your KY question wasn't crazy - you just didn't know much about hiv transmission before you came here and so the question was perfectly reasonable. However, if you keep asking the same question again and again.... well, that's not so reasonable.

Jimmy,

No, it wouldn't be a risk. However, I'm going to say it again... If you have an active herpes present that is not covered by a condom... DO NOT HAVE INTERCOURSE! Herpes, unlike hiv, is very EASY to transmit. Don't go spreading your herpes around.

You said you did not have a herpes lesion present during the incident you are worrying about. You did not have a risk and would not have even if there was one there. If the herpes lesion was on the tip of your penis and you had unprotected intercourse, then you might be in trouble. But you didn't. You used a condom and had no lesion. NO RISK.

And as I said, as you will not, after coming here and learning, ever let an active herpes lesion touch another person, you will never have any worries about the lesion being a transmission route. OK? I hope you understand.

When a condom breaks it isn't a subtle event.  It's kind of like popping a balloon..... it shreds.  If your condom had broken, you would have known it.

So, no worries!

Just to let you know I had a broken condom with a SW and it sounded exactly like the experts said, "like a balloon popping."  Also you would feel skin contact (this was an affirmation that my condom was definately broken) or a surge of excitement...

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."

Had a blowjob last night ,woke up and parts of the head are purple where she sucked so hard it hurt ,like a lovebite/hickey.Is there any HIV risk associated with this as the blood is drawn to the head of penis

No Jimmy, there is no risk of HIV as a result of your knob being sucked purple. Please read the Welcome Thread to learn more about how HIV is and is not transmitted.

You should NOT be PMing people to beg for answers in your thread. If there was anything wrong with the answers you've had, you would have known about it by now.

You didn't have a risk, as you have been told. You got a blowjob. Get over it. OK?

A time out can only be imposed by a Moderator. You'd have to ask Ann or Andy about that.

Why don't you exercise a little bit of self control? Turn your computer off, get up from the desk and walk away. It's not hard. Also make an appointment to talk with a mental health professional to discuss your "irrational thoughts" and unfounded fears of HIV infection.

Keep using those condoms. You should be wearing one everytime you have intercourse. They provide very effective protection.

Her having a piercing wouldn't have presented any particular risk unless she was bleeding from it.

In any case, by consistently wearing a condom for intercourse you're keeping yourself covered literally and figuratively so there wouldn't be any cause for concern.

Two,

No, you don't need to test over this specific incident. However, 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.

Check out the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence. Use them correctly and consistently and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple.

Two,

Condoms have been proven to be very effective when it comes to hiv prevention - and this includes when blood is present.

There have been long-term studies of couples where one is positive and one is negative. In the couples who used condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, but no barrier for oral activities, not one of the negative partners became infected with hiv. Not one. This shows us two things. One, condoms are very effective for the prevention of hiv transmission. Two, oral sex is much lower risk than previously believed. We now have the evidence that oral sex is a very low risk activity where hiv transmission is concerned.

Keep using those condoms.

two,

Getting a blowjob is not a risk and neither is cunnilingus.

GIVING a blowjob might, on rare occasion, result in infection - but this route of transmission is also extremely unlikely. How do we know? Read my other post again.

two,

Yes it only has to do with an open sore, because the open sore MIGHT give hiv access to the bloodstream.

Anytime you have an open sore, you need to keep it away from other people anyway, for their sake as much as yours. And make sure you use condoms for intercourse.

sorry didnt quite understand,you mean there is no risk regardless of her ilness
Exactly.  The only risk would be her passing a respiratory ailment to you from coughing in your face.  But no HIV risk.

Hello recently had sex with a condom however after I noticed quite a bit of blood on condom obviously the girl was on her period.Also there was quite a bit of bood on the base shaft area of my penis where the condom doesnt cover and this is the spot that some time ago I had a herpes though havent had a visible sore or some time.I read somewhere that there was no need for a visible sore for there to be a risk from contact with blood etc..The condom looked intact when I took it of but am concerned due to the blood where the condom didnt cover.Am I at risk?

David,

Can I ask why you are using different usernames while posting to our forums? Thus far, you have also used twofourty and jimmy5447

Please realize that this kind of activity is disrespectful of other forum members, as well as our moderators. People spend a considerable amount of time helping others in these forums. Using multiple accounts is at the very least annoying, if not deceiving and disrespectful of others. It is also against our Terms of Membership which you agreed to when you became a member. This information is also contained within the Welcome Thread, which you should have read by now. So really, you have no excuse.

You must realize that the answers won't change, no matter how many names you post under.

I would appreciate a reply to this message, and I hope you will commit to using just one account - preferably your original one. If not, you will be banned from further access to the forums.

RapidRod's reply to your post is spot on...no risk.

Blood dries on the skin, skin does not absord blood..intact skin is what protects us, and from what you have described there was no risk whatsoever.

Please read the lessons here on transmission.

You did NOT have a risk in the incident you bring to us today. Please read your entire thread over again, because you keep asking the same basic questions and the answers are NOT going to change, no matter how many names you use or how many times you ask the question.

No risk.

Keep using those condoms.

Thankyou for your understanding,I will only use this username from now on.

See my only concern was there was blood on the base part of my penis not covered by the condom and it was in the place where I used to get a herpes sore and I heard somewhere that may create a microscopic entry?

two,

You heard wrong. Go read the responses you had on page one of this thread when you were using the name jimmy. The answers, as I told you yesterday, are not going to change. Menstrual blood does not change the basic fact that intact skin is an efficient barrier to hiv infection.

And as you were also told as jimmy, if you have an active outbreak where your condom does not cover, you shouldn't be having intercourse because you WILL infect your partner with herpes.

Read your ENTIRE thread again - all two pages of it. Our answers are NOT going to change.

two,

What do you think?

It's ONLY relevant if you have an outbreak. If you have an outbreak on your penis where your condom does not cover, you should NOT be having intercourse at ALL until you are completely healed. This is NOT for your benefit, it is for the benefit of your partner so you don't give them herpes. Keep your herpes to yourself!

two,

What I mean is that if you have an active outbreak - a sore, blister, whatever you want to call it - you should not have intercourse if the condom does not cover the blister because you will give your partner herpes. This ain't rocket science, mate! Herpes is spread through blister to skin contact. Don't let your herpes blisters come into contact with another person's skin. If you either make sure your blister is covered with a condom, or abstain from intercourse during an outbreak, you won't have to worry about any increase hiv risk to yourself. It's pretty simple.

Keep your herpes to yourself!

You're inching towards that time out...

Ok thanks Ann so seeing as I didnt see an open sore/blister there was no risk to me or my partner?

In an earlier post you said " You did not have a risk and would not have even if there was one there" referring to a lesion ,is this the same for this latest blood scenario?

If you can confirm Yes No Risk to both I will be on my way,sorry for being a pain

two,

Re-reading your edited post does not change my answer. NOTHING you have brought to us in this 140 posts long thread has been a risk for hiv infection. You used condoms for intercourse. No risk. You didn't have a herpes blister present when you had intercourse. No risk.

Keep using condoms correctly and consistently and you will continue to avoid hiv infection. If you should have a herpes outbreak in future, take care to keep your blister away from other people.

Hi a girl I was with had just cut the top of her finger with a  breadknife ,it was bleeding bad and we were holding hands ,I also had a cut on my finger and mabe her blood flowed into mine as we held hands,whats the risk?

I've merged your threads.

She had a cut and you also had a FRESH, OPEN WOUND? And you were holding hands -- holding open, bleeding cuts together? It all sounds highly improbable to me. HIV is  a fragile virus and not easily transmitted. I've never known of a case of transmission in the manner you are suggesting took place.
