Help ! Can i be infected ?
« on: December 25, 2008, 02:08:20 AM »
Hi
I desperately need your opinion and advice . Please asses my situation and advice me on what I must do

I had encounter with three women . I never inserted my penis into the vagina . All I did was fingering both holes (UNPROTECTED), licked breast and a deep kissing session with them ! Its been 24 days since the last incident . I have dry mouth, something like hairy leukopia on my tongue, feel weak and tired, feverish occasional joint pain since , occasional diaorehha. I never felt this way before !

I am totally  stressed out and havent been able 2 sleep since !
Did I acquire the HIV virus by anyway from the above incident ???
Can I get the accurate result if I take a test now ?
How long should I wait 2 get the accurate result ?
Will deep kissing and transfer of saliva risk in HIV ? NOT SURE of they had or I had sores or wounds in mouth at that time !
Finally , if this ain't hiv then how come I get all this symptoms that I never had before ???

Waiting for your valued reply !

You were never at risk of contracting HIV by fingering and you don't need testing.

Nothing you did put you at risk for HIV transmission. Kissing including deep kissing is not a risk for HIV transmission. Your saliva has over a dozen enzymes and proteins which very effectively prevent HIV from being transmitted, IF it's even present.

You don't need to get tested over this incident. It seems to me you are just becoming sexually active. If I am guessing right about that, then following Rod's suggesiton about reading the lesson on transmission here is an excellent one.

This is not an HIV situation. Period.

thanks a bunch 4 the reply .. but i feel somehow i have contracted hiv , cause now i have this funny throbbing feeling under my jaws .. feels like my lymph nodes and also i have hairy leukopia , which while goin through the net tells me the initial stages of hiv infection, can the symptoms start after 25 days of the incident ?

Could u also please tell me hw long the hiv virus survives out of the body...? like between the nails of fingers , clothes etc ?

In The country I stay , if the authorities find out i have HIV , they put me in jail till i get deported !

So somehow I need 2 get tested , so plz could u advice me the right date ? like hw many weeks after ? can i take it within 30 days of contact , cause i dont think i can wait for 3 months as i would have died of stress and anxiety by then !

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.

tense,

You can test NOW for a conclusive result, because you did NOT have a risk for hiv infection.

If you feel unwell, see a doctor. It's nothing to do with hiv.

Sorry for pestering you guys for the same question again and again ... but plz

Does Oral Hairy Leukoplakia happens only in HIV+ patients or can it happen to HIV- people too ? Is it a sure sign of HIV if i never had it before and got it all of a sudden ?

What if the girl i kissed had a dry mouth ? Could I have then contracted HIV ?

Whatever is going on has nothing to do with HIV. If you can't get over it either physically, see your doctor. And for the emotional aspects you should see a professional. We can't help you with that here.

Have you read our lesson on Transmission as was suggested to you previously? Doesn't seem so from the questions that you continue to ask.

And no, if someone with HIV fingered your butthole, that is absolutely not a risk for HIV transmission.

Your questions are all anxiety driven. They have no basis for real risk in HIV science. And if you keep coming back here with more of the same you're going to get a Time Out really soon.

Thanks for the reply , Mr Andy Valez

I hope you won't give me the time out  after asking this question too . 

I remember while fingering one of the girls , she had menstural blood in the vagina . Suppose i had a cut in my finger and this menstural blood gets in contact with my open cut , is there a risk of transmission .. ? Theoritically Yes Maybe , But have there been any documented case like this ?

Reread the replies you have been given. Fingering no matter what type of spin you want to put on it is NOT a risk of contracting HIV.

Sorry all moderators- didn't mean to get your back up. I'm just finding it really difficult to accept that my incident was no risk for HIV.

Can you contract hiv if infected blood goes under your fingernail or through micro cuts ?

i will refrain from posting further after this question !

NO to your last question, the HIV virus has to get into your blood stream in order to infect.

One more question on this and you are on a 28 day Time Out, you have been told you are not at risk and to move on...I suggest you do it.


Please consider this a warning.

Tensed,

How long is a piece of string? Lifespans vary from person to person whether or not they have hiv.

We don't seem to be getting through to you. You didn't have a risk for hiv infection when fingering. END OF STORY. NO RISK. NONE.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse and you will avoid hiv infection. IT really is that simple.

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