Anal and oral risk?
« on: June 19, 2010, 10:15:27 AM »
hello everyone

1 month and a half ago i hooked up with a transsexual in London via the internet. This transsexual is an escort which worries me. it started off by me getting rimmed and getting a blow-job which was quite rough. after that i received protected anal sex and after he was done i received ejaculation on my body. If some secretion touched my urethra could i pose some risk of infection and what if the condom broke.
After i went home i realized my penis was bruised, this is from the rough blow-job.

2 weeks after the hook up i experienced symptoms such as

. Muscle / Body pains
. Constipation that's still consisting
. Severe Fatigue
. Slight Armpit Pain

Apart from that i didn't notice ant fever or rashs or swollen nodes
The body pain and fatigue lasted around 8 days

And yesterday i was at a shisha cafe watching the world cup and i went into the bathroom and when i finished up i tried to unlock the door and i cut my self on the handle due to it being sharp. it is possible that somebody as well as me cut their self their... does this pose a risk

I went to the clinic to get tested for chlamydia and syphilis and both came out negative. but they told me come back in 2 months for hiv test

Am i at risk? and are my symptoms relevant to ars

Thanx

Bobby,

Nothing you describe was a risk for hiv infection.

Being rimmed is not a risk.

Getting a blowjob - no matter how rough - is not a risk.

Protected anal intercourse is not a risk. When condoms break, it's very obvious and she would have said something.

Getting cum on your body is not a risk.

Getting some cum on your urethra in the manner you describe is not going to infect you.

Cutting yourself on a door - even if a person who is poz also cut themselves on it before you - is not a risk either.

Successful hiv infections occurs INSIDE the body, as in unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse where the virus never leaves the confines of the human body.

When hiv finds itself outside the human body, small changes in temperature, and pH and moisture levels all quickly damage the virus and render it unable to infect.

Here's what you need to know in order to remain hiv negative:


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 the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED TO TEST OVER ANYTHING YOU BROUGHT TO US, 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!

The most important detail in your comments is that you used a condom for anal intercourse. They provide very effective protection against HIV transmission. The ONLY confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse.

So nothing else you have reported sexually was a risk for HIV. And HIV is a fragile virus that is not transmitted from environmental surfaces. A door handle could be dripping with semen and it wouldn't be a risk.

Other STDs are much easier to acquire than HIV so if you are sexually active it is a good idea to at least annually have a full STD panel done.

As for your symptoms, if they persist that is something to discuss with your doctor. They have nothing to do with HIV.

Cheers.

If you haven't already done so, read our lesson on Transmission. It will inform you and save you some needless worrying.

There's a link to it in the thread which opens this section.

Cheers.

Yes, your six week negative result is reliable because you were not at risk of being infected with HIV in the first place.

Bobby, this is more needless worrying on your part.

I didn't see the amount of blood you used but "a drop" is a very modest amount. I don't have any doubts that your negative result was/is accurate.

Go see your doctor about your problems. Nothing has changed the HIV science-based reality that you were not at risk for HIV in anything you have reported. Period.

The important thing is that the head of your penis was covered because that's where the potential risk is.

I am also going to caution you now that after being told many times that you didn't have a risk, if you continue to return about the same situation with more what ifs, you are going to find yourself receiving a Time Out for at least 28 days from the site.

HIV is not your problem. Period.i
