Am I Get HIV infected??
« on: April 01, 2010, 04:09:27 AM »
Three days before, I received a Jel Massage in massage parlour, when i started recieving massage i get ejaculated due to excitement when lady massager touched me on my other part of body i.e. foot ( Not to my penis or near by it), then i cleaned it with fresh napkin paper by myself, then balanced one by towel after five minutes. After 30 minutes,at the end of massage she put lots of Jel with hands & touched my penis & surrounding as a part of massage for 10 to 15 seconds, now i got fear that am I get HIV infected??, IF that lady massager is HIV infected.
I didnot received (hand job) blow job or ejaculation by her hands.
I didnt had any sexual contact with that lady massager, neither I touched her at any part of her body.
I didnt not have any cut on my body or to my penis.
I like to know whether I get infected by HIV??? If I want to know by test , which test I suppose to follow to know about same??? and after how many days??

Please reply,

Thank you very much.

Thanks for guiding me for new post.

Prox,

You cannot catch HIV from getting a massage. It doesn't matter if it's your foot or your penis. It doesn't matter if the lady was HIV positive or not. You were not at risk and you do not need to be tested for HIV.

HIV is transmitted inside the body; that is through unprotected anal or vaginal sex, through sharing contaminated injecting equipment such as needles and syringes and in some cases from HIV positive mother to her unborn baby.

Please read our Welcome Thread and follow the links to our lessons on HIV transmission.

Thank you MtD for your very clear, kind & quick reply.
Still i have some doubts plz clarify.
If I have some small white spots due to rubbing of skin like we rub our skin due to itching on my testicle or bottom of my penis & if that lady massger have any cut on her hand, when she touched to my penis & testicle; is there any possibility of getting infected by HIV if that lady massger is HIV positive? becoz maximum of lady massagers are HIV positive like sex worker.

If I want to go for HIV test, when shall I go for it? is it after 6 weeks of time?

Please reply I am just getting worried.

Prox,

As I explained above you were not at risk of contracting HIV from having a massage. It doesn't matter if the masseur was HIV positive because HIV is transmitted inside the body. You cannot catch HIV from being touched.

The window period for HIV testing is 12 weeks not 6 but this doesn't matter in your case because you do not need to be tested.

You are worrying needlessly.

Thanks alot once again MtD ; I got relief now,
I have gone through other threads too & you have also mention in your reply that infection will be take place inside the body & not by touching.
I know repeatedly asking question is not at all good But still I have one more doubt;
Please clarify my doubt & this could be last one;
As I told you that I clean my self with fresh napkin paper & balance one by towel after five minutes;     later at the end of massage i.e. after 30 minutes that masseur touched my penis.
My question is;
During the time when she touched my penis; if there is some semen on tip of penis & if there is any cut on her palm; is there any possibility of getting infection during the contact of semen & blood from her cut??? Is there any possibility of getting infection due to contact of semen & towel if we suppose that towel is having blood stain of infected person??
Becoz I didn't saw all the towel or her palm properly so I have these doubts in my mind.

I am very much scared & sleepless after this incidence; As you are very knowledgeable people for this HIV subject, I am asking all these doubts;
I am really very thankful to you,for giving me a proper reply, and for giving your valuable time to listen my doubts.

Please clarify my doubt.

Thanks once again.

Prox,

NO. It doesn't matter that she touched your penis even if she had cuts on her hand. But come on, think about it. If she had cuts on her hands, she would not be giving a massage. It would hurt HER.

It doesn't matter about using the towel or napkin either. Hiv is NOT transmitted from objects in the environment, including towels or napkins or anything else.

You did NOT have a risk for hiv infection!

Thanks Ann,
Thanks for clarifying my all doubts.
About "common thing" yes i do understand the same too but;
Why I was worried about her cut becoz; first thing I didn't saw it, second thing is I belongs to India, here to survive she has to work N earn money ; some time she has to perform her job to give earning to parlou toor, so cut doesn't matter at that time for them.
Sorry to reply you this way, my intention is to realise you my situation, plz forgive for such reply.

So Shall I consider my self Out of HIV infection N leave it behind???

Thanks once again.

Helo MtD, Rapidrod, Andy

As Ann replied me that I am not on HIV risk but she didn't replied in detail to my question;
My question was,
Say As after 30 minutes, if there was some some semen on tip of penis or below foreskin, & if she had cut on her palm, If there is contact of blood & semen while she touched my penis @ 10-15 second, will I get infected by HIV?? I am worried becoz most of them work there like sex worker & all of them are HIV infected??
Plz reply me; as you people have very much sound & scientific knowledge of this HIV subject.

I am just scared & sleepless becoz of this incident, my intention is not to ask the repeated question but to just know the my situation; whether I am infected or Not.

Please answer to my query.
 
Thanks for your valuable time,

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.

HIV is a fragile virus. The kind of fluid to skin contact you are worrying relentlessly about is not a risk. HIV needs the kind of receptive setting to remain viable for transmission which unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse provide. Those are the only confirmed means of sexual transmission.

You don't have to believe us but you can't continue to come back here about this same non-risk situation. If you do you're going to get a Time Out for 28 days. Get on with your life.
