Blood on finger
« on: May 02, 2010, 02:00:18 AM »
Hi All,

I had unprotected sex before with few women however after I got tested with hiv negative results 2 years back , I have never done unprotected sex anymore .
I had many sexual encounters with protected vaginal and anal sex. however I never use condoms when receiving oral, and performed oral sex to 2 different woman a few months back. I had fairly bad gums, bleeds by itself occasionally. I do not remember any similar seroconversion illness especially having rashes, swollen lymph nodes

Me and my wife had first sex unprotected 3 weeks ago, she started to develop white tongue, and many ulcers on the tongue and gums a week ago, which were quite painful for her, she starts to recover. she has no fever or rash. but had joint pain in her neck. I am scared to death if I have hiv and infected her. I read in the internet %43 of patients developed Mucocutaneous ulceration during seroconversion, which scares me so much.

I know easy way to be sure to get tested, however I am working overseas, if I get positive results, I will lose my job and working visa.

You never had a risk of contracting HIV so whatever is going on with you wife is not related to contracting HIV from you.

As long as the test you took sometime ago was 13 weeks or more past those unprotected incidents then your negative result was/is reliable.

Nothing else you have done since then as described would have put you at risk for HIV. As for your wife's symptoms, they are not in any way HIV specific. If they persist she should discuss them with her doctor.

Condoms provide very effective protection against HIV transmission. The only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse.

You are worrying needlessly. Other STDs are much easier to acquire than HIV, so if you are sexually active it would be a good idea to have a full STD panel done at least once a year or even every 6 months.

Hi all,

I had scary fingering experience with a transsexual recently, she had her sex change operation few months ago, so I fingered her clit outside without inserting inside for around 20 mins, when I stopped, I noticed there is remarkable amount of blood on the towel and my fingers. I am not sure where blood came from but definitely its not mine.

I went to washroom, washed my hands and checked if there is any open cut or sore, so far I could not see any. Is there any risk that I should be worried of?

By the way i was diagnosed in last May for hsv 1 and chlamydia. I took antibiotics for chlamydia supposedly to be cured. my hiv,hepatis result was negative. I had only unprotected oral sex exposure, anal and vaginal sex protected with different partners. I found out who performed unprotected oral sex on me in mid March (we had protected vaginal sex), has chlamydia as well. I am not sure If I passed to her, or she passed to me.

After chlamydia medication started on mid May I have experienced neck pain, then fever one day, swelling on my testicles, itchiness,redness on my feet. Prior to that I did not experience any symptoms. Now I believe I am experiencing  pneumonia as feeling like coughing and sharp back pain near my lungs. Recently I experienced bad itchy ,burning rash around my neck and went off in 3 days and yesterday noticed blister on my testicle. I know this is hiv related forum , but I wanted to share, maybe somebody comment if its due to Herpes or chlamydia(I pray its nothing related to Hiv) or find helpful. Between last May to current date, I had few partners ,but all protected vaginal sex, brief unprotected oral sex.

Regardless of the presence of blood, fingering is not a risk for hiv infection. You are worrying needlessly.

If you feel unwell, see your doctor. Whatever is going on has NOTHING to do with hiv.
