Another Oral question
« on: February 24, 2010, 04:32:50 PM »
Hello All,

Another married man here freaked out about receiving a handjob finished with a  2-3Min Hummer from a
women he just meet. I never thought this would weigh on my mind so much until  my doc told there is a risk with insertive oral. After reading some web sites, it really freaks you out. I'm glad I discovered this site. 

I had all my Std test after the incident (week to 2) including Hiv which was neg at time. Been married a long time and this was my first time straying. I do have hsv1 and Epstein Bar virus. Would this matter if it was weeking my immune system at the time of the oral. Talked the girl into testing for me. Don't know how I manage that. She thought I was crazy. She did a rapid 20min test, came back neg. What if she was in the seroconversion period and had a high amount of viral load in her saliva, would there be any chance of transmission to me. I know studies have proved one pos and one neg having oral and nothing happening but I believe those tests were performed after one had seroconverted. I have had some chills, mouth ulcers , and sore throat but no fever. Think its just my nerves getting the best of me. I am a nervous person by nature and I'm thinking the worst here. This quick act was def not worth the stress I'm putting on myself.

I have read similar posts but I guess I just need to hear it from you guys in my own post.
Thanks for your time.

You weren't at risk and you didn't need to be tested for HIV because of this incident. For the record your doctor is wrong - you cannot contract HIV from receiving a blowjob or a handjob.

Also you shouldn't go about heavying other people into getting tested. It's creepy and weird. Sex workers are often meticulous about their sexual health and and in any event, provided you have safe sex the HIV status of your partner is not a concern.

And yes, what you did constitutes safe sex in terms of HIV.

Please read our Welcome Thread to learn more about how HIV is and is not transmitted.

Yeah,

Your right Matty. It was a little creepy and weird to ask her to get tested. Just paniced after talking to my Doc.  Even if she was in a seroconversion period, there is still no chance, correct?

No chance. Seriously bud, you can't get HIV from copping a gobby or a handjob. Even without protection. Even if your partner is HIV positive.

Made,

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. Regardless of viral load.

Getting a blowjob is absolutely not a risk for hiv infection.

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

Hi Matty, Andy, Ann, and the crew,

I had 2 Hiv tests since my insertive oral encounter back on jan30th.
Tested neg 6 weeks at a clinic and 7 weeks thru blood test thru doc office.
Recently felt like sht. Fever and some chills. On zoloft for my anxiety and OCD. Keep thinking
about HIV. Could I have gotten infected thru blood drawn or act of oral. Just looking to get on with my life.

Thanks,

Made

Anxiety and OCD? Well there's your problem! As we've explained to you, HIV is not the issue here. If you're feeling ill talk to your doctor.

Please be aware that we are not able to assist you with your mental issues. I encourage you to take your Zoloft and organise some counselling for yourself.
