Fingering
« on: March 30, 2010, 10:33:16 AM »

Hi and congratulations for you site.

Before 30 days ago, I have met a prostitute and she gave me oral sex without condom (blowjob) and I have sexual intercourse (anal & vaginal) with her using condom. Also, the last 2 - 3 weeks (after the case), I have a sore throat (tonsilitis the doctor is said) with 2 days fever 37.7 C.  Are the actions described above are danger for HIV? Are the above syptoms are symptoms for HIV? I need to have a HIV test? 

Thanks in advance,

Vasel

Vazel,

Getting a blowjob, with or without a condom is not a risk for hiv infection. NO RISK.

Both anal and vaginal intercourse WITH a condom are also not risks for hiv infection. NO RISK.

You have NOT had a risk for hiv infection and you do not need to test over this situation. Whatever is causing your sore throat is NOT hiv.

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.

ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED TO TEST OVER THIS SITUATION, 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!

As Ann often says, risk for HIV is not about who you have sex with, but WHAT you do. As long as condoms are consistently used by the insertive partner for vaginal and anal intercourse, then you are well protected. It really is just that simple.

Hi again

Before my coming, she put her figure (for two - three minutes) in my asshole - anus. Is this action is is danger for HIV? I need to have a HIV test?

Thanks in advance,

You had protected sex, no risk. Fingering is not a risk of HIV transmission.

Fingering is not a risk for hiv infection whether you're the person doing the fingering or if you're the person being fingered. You've already been told that all you need to do in a sexual setting to protect yourself from hiv infection is use a condom for anal or vaginal intercourse. It really, really really is that simple.

Is the vaginal fingering (in to woman) danger for hiv? It is needed to have a test? Because, before one week I have inserted my fingers to the woman's vagina.

Thanks vazel.

You have already been told that fingering is not a risk for hiv infection. It doesn't matter if you are doing the fingering or if you are being fingered. Not one person has ever been infected through fingering and you will not be the first.

Hi again,

Last week I have met a girl, I used my fingers to her vagina and after with these fingers, I catch my penis for masturbation. Is that case is dangerous to pass HIV?

Thanks a lot,

Vazel

Vazel,

Of course it is NOT a risk for hiv infection.

Hiv is a fragile, difficult to transmit virus that is primarily transmitted INSIDE the human body, as in unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse where the virus never leaves the confines of the two bodies.

Once outside the body, small changes in temperature and pH and moisture levels all quickly damage the virus and render it unable to infect. Any infected fluids on your fingers would have been inactivated before you touched your penis.

Once again you are worrying over a NO RISK situation.

And no, you do not need to test over this incident.

Hi and congradulations for your forum.

Before one month and half I have met a prostitute. We have vaginal sex with condom and I used my fingers to her vagina and after with these fingers, I catch my penis for masturbation and I finished in her mouth. Is that case is dangerous to pass HIV?

Also, I have a bronchtis for 2 and half weeks and sore throat. The first week after the incident I have nausea and diarrhoea for 2 days with 37.8 C fever. After two days I have a allergic skin rash on face for 3 hours and I go to hospital to give me a treatment for allergy.

I need to have a test over this situation?

Thanks a lot,

Vazel,

You should know by now from our previous replies to you that nothing you did with the sex worker was a risk for hiv infection. Re-read your entire thread.

You did the right thing and used a condom for intercourse. You did not have a risk for hiv infection.

Hi again.

Before two months I have infected with mycoplasma / ureoplasma and I take the appropriate therapy for 3 weeks. Before two weeks I have met a prostitute, we have vaginal sex with condom and she gave me oral sex without condom. If the ureoplasma / mycoplasma is still (is not treated), is that case is dangerous to pass HIV?

I need to have a test over this situation?

Thanks a lot,

vasel

Nothing you are adding in your details changes the HIV-science based fact that getting a blowjob is NOT a risk for HIV. No matter what details you throw into the mix, you are worrying needlessly.

Re-read what has been said to you about this. Really.
