Vaginal penetration question
« on: January 17, 2010, 03:50:47 AM »
Hello. Early last summer, May/June I had an incident with a girl from work; we were making out and we were undressed. She climbed on top of me, grinded on me a bit, then grabbed my penis and put it inside her. I was in her for not more than 2 minutes at the most, then I realized this was a stupiddddd move, and promptly pulled out of her and ejaculated outside of her. This was completely unprotected, and I am circumcised. This is way outside the 3 month mark, and I have an appt. for next monday in which I'll have a physical as well as a blood/HIV test. I have one every year, but this is the riskiest thing I've done. Now, I have read that transmission from female to male is tougher, but it's obviously still worrisome and risky. The thing that is nerve-wracking is I was browsing the "just tested poz" forum and one person posted they contracted HIV through unprotected oral sex from their girlfriend.  This is making me think my chances aren't as good as I thought my results would be negative, though I'm aware that it's useless to compare situations.

Any thought as to the chances my test would be positive? Thanks in advance.

Justin,

There's pretty much NO chance that your test will come back positive.

Don't believe everything you read in the Just Tested forum. Getting a blowjob is absolutely NOT a risk for hiv infection. Not one person has ever been infected this way - despite what some may claim - and you won't be the first. Not only is saliva not infectious, but it also contains over a dozen different proteins and enzymes that damage hiv and render it unable to infect.

As for the very, very brief unprotected vaginal, I fully expect you to test negative. Your risk was about as slight as it can get. However, you need to learn from this and start making sure condoms are being used - and make sure your partner knows that you will not have intercourse without a condom, before things get hot and heavy.

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 sexually transmitted infections together. To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

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

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.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

Thankyou for the quick reply, it is much appreciated. http://forums.poz.com/index.php?topic=28076.0 that is the link I was referring to. The worry of a situation such as this is definitely a red flag for making sure one always uses protection, as I will from now on. It's unfortunate some of us (such as myself) get worried and caught up in other people's stories and start projecting upon themselves. So, thank you for your communication on this :)

So I get tested tomorrow, and the way my doctor works is they take blood, and within three days if they don't call back, you have nothing to worry about. So I'll know by Thursday the latest. Thanks again.

Given what you have reported, like Ann I expect  you to test negative.

Hopefully. This is all assuming the girl was positive; I have no idea. I'll report back on Thursday. Thankyou!
