Hand job in Thailand
« on: July 15, 2010, 07:12:49 AM »
Hi,

I did a stupid mistake and went to whole body massage in Thailand, and got also hand job. She did it without gloves and I didn't wear condom, she used massage oil I think and even the room was pretty dark, I think she didn't use mouth (at least I tried to see what happens). I didn't check her hands or anything. After that I tried to remember all details and afraid of many things and my imagination, and do I really remember everything right? Right after that I didn't worry about that too much and hope I wouldn't get anything like HIV symptoms. But later I began to observe if I would get any symptoms, and exactly after 2 weeks I got very sore throat and flu that lasted one week. That is so strange because I get this kind of flu very rarely. After that, one week flu, I still felt something deep in my throat, and something like chest pain and pressure. Then I read about candida, which also made me more afraid. This has lasted now also one week. I hope now it's over though, not sure yet, but today I feel better, but still not totally healthy feeling. I went to do hiv p24 antigen test, but I'm not sure do I want to hear results of that because of it's accuracy and big percent of false positives. I planned that maybe I would go to do antibody test + PCR dna test after 4-6 weeks. Do I need to worry and do I need to test? Or can I just trust it was just some flu virus and can have safely sex with my gf?

SF,

If you're worried about false positives, then the last thing you want to do is a PRC DNA. They have a VERY high rate of false positive results.

You don't need any sort of testing over a handjob. Not one person has ever been infected in this way and you aren't going to be the first.

If you feel unwell, see your doctor. It's nothing to do with hiv.

Ok, very good to hear that.  :)  I have been so so worried. Even if she would have used mouth, that wouldn't be any risk to me, am I right? And about "symptoms", is it typical that in this kind of situations stress can be the main factor to develope and trigger flu and other kind of infections?

Receiving oral is absolutely not a risk for HIV transmission. Period.

We don't make any wholesale evaluation regarding the source of symptoms. If you are having symptoms that is something to discuss with your doctor. We can't diagnose anything in this setting.

SciFi,

For future reference, 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 A BLOWJOB OR HANDJOB, 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!

I went to check my P24 Antigen test result anyway. Negative. It was taken 23 days after the incidence. When I got the result I felt happy and relieved. But still feel something, not normal, deep in my throat and in the morning I noticed some candida (I guess) on my tongue. White spots and some tingle on the tip of tongue. I hope it's only because of antibiotics which I have eaten one week.

SciFi,

Antibiotic use commonly causes candida overgrowth. It's nothing unusual. Go see your doctor about getting some meds to take care of it.

You haven't had a risk and it doesn't matter how many unnecessary tests you take over this handjob, they're going to come back negative.
