Scared really bad.
« on: February 17, 2009, 01:08:35 AM »
Hello all,

I have gotten some really good advice from this site before, but that was a while ago.  However, I neve learned.  so here is my situation.

Insertive oral and massage and some rubbinb against private parts.  All without protection.  No intercourse of any type except for insertive oral.

Insertive oral, forced oral sex.  cum in her mouth.  Both women sex workers.  Came inside their mouth.

Rub their privates with my mine, but neve went inside them

Anywyas, this happens every now and then.

My sysmptoms.  About 2 months ago, i got dirreah.  I figured it is stomach virus. doc gave me some antibotics, dirreah never went away.  Got on another antibiotice, dirreah still there.  3rd time another antibiotics by a gastro.  dirreah still there but some improvement.  As i sit here, i am still having dirreah. 

1 week ago, a small white patch on my gum.  doctor did biopsy and waiting on results.  The orla surgeon told me it looks like some kind of AUTO IMMUNE diesease.  Not sure what that mean, but scared to death as HIV is a immune disease as well.

I cold sore appeard on lower lio but it went away with some lip balm. 

I did not get sick, flu or fever.  Every now and then i would get runny nose.  No thrush or other white patches visible except at some areas in the gums, and some areas of the gums are really red.  It looked like gum disease, but oral surgeon says Auto Immune disease.  HIV is never mentioned but i never told him about my experience eitehr.

So what do you all think about my chances.  It seems like I have all the symptoms that new conver to HIV would have.  I hope that is not the case, but I have heard tha insertive Oral carries some risk. I called CDC and they told me that you can get it like that and that they have documentaion on record to prove that.  Other syptom, I have serious case of GERD as well. 

Hoping to hear from you all.

thanksq and have nice day.

Forgetting about your symptoms - as for HIV risk assessment they actually mean very little/nothing - you didn't have an exposure that would put you at risk for HIV - no matter how you cut it.

You are correct about not learning, so do yourself a favor and read the lessons section again - it will help with future concerns of yours.

NB. Any advice about HIV is given in addition to your own medical advice and not intended to replace it. You should never make clinical decisions based on what anyone says on the internet but rather check with your ID doctor first. Discussions from the internet are just that - Discussions. They may give you food for thought, but they should not direct you to do anything but fuel discussion.

ou,

Nothing you report is a risk for hiv infection. Not one person has ever been infected through getting a blowjob and you won't be the first. Same thing for rubbing genitals without penetration (aka frottage).   You did NOT have a risk.

Autoimmune disease is a totally different thing to hiv. They are NOT related, even remotely.

Keep working with your doctor to find out what, if anything, is wrong with you. Whatever it is, it is NOT hiv. You did NOT have a risk.

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

thank your for your advice.  I happened to have had a fever yesterday as well.  Dirreah is still there.  However, i am not loosing my apetite.  Anyhows, if you dont mind please.  How do you explain CDC saying that they have a case docuemented with Insertive Oral and HIV.
Thanks!

They don't. You never seen anywhere on the CDC website that says verified transmission from oral sex.
