HIV Question
« on: August 17, 2016, 10:01:57 AM »
Good morning everyone.

I am a heterosexual male - I Recently received a BJ from a TS that lasted less than 10 seconds. When I looked down there right after there was a little red stuff around the base of my dick where my stomach and Dick meet. There was nothing on my dick and I think this could've been lipstick.

Does this carry an HIV risk? Even if the red stuff was blood is there a need to get tested?

Thank you in advance for your answer.

Hi
Getting a blow job is not risk for HIV , there has not been one confirmed case since the epidemic began and testing is not necessary .
Keep in mind other STIs are much more easily transmitted.

Best Wade

To avoid infection,
You need to be using condoms for all anal and vaginal intercourse until you are in a trusting monogamous relationship and both have been tested for all STIs and HIV.
Everyone who is sexually active should have an annual exam and test for all STIs and HIV ,and always after unprotected intercourse. Always using condoms will give you peace of mind your tests will return with a negative result.

Hi Wade, so even if there was blood present in the mouth there is still no concern for me?

Thank you for your answer.

One other question:

The encounter I described happened two weeks ago. For the last week I have had angular chelitis on the corners of my mouth and I just saw a pimple/white spot on the side of my tongue.

Are these symptoms of acute HIV infection?

Thanks in advance for your reply.

Whatever is going on in the corners of your mouth has nothing to do with the HIV, nor does a pimple/white spot on your tongue.

Wade is correct: your actions in this instance did not put you at risk for contraction of the HIV.  Stop fretting and move on.
