Laora,

For a start, TAKE YOUR CAP LOCKS OFF AND STOP SHOUTING AT US!!!!

This case was highly unusual and involved a lot of blood. The next time you get a blowjob and someone bites the head of your dick off, let us know. Because this guy had the whole nail bitten/torn off his thumb - he didn't get his thumb or dick sucked.

Saliva is not infectious. End of story.

You are still under a second time out WARNING!

M RLY SORRY MADAM......PLZ DNT MAKE ME TIME OUT.....IT IS WRITTEN THERE THAT “The son had pulled out the thumb nail of his father. Since the wound was raw, the virus could enter easily,” said Dr Alaka Deshpande, who runs the Centre of Excellence ART clinic at JJ hospital. The patient had come to her last year.......THE SON WAS HIV POSITIVE.....THE BLOOD WAS HIS FATHER'S NOT OF SON....SO SALIVA MIXED WITH FRESH BLOOD OF FATHER....SO CUM HIS FATHER WAS INFECTED? IF SALIVA IS NOT INFECTOUS!!

I agree with one thing you state.


SALIVA IS NOT INFECTIOUS!!

I am not going to debate the merits of an ancient patient report. If you do not like the answers you get here, please continue your search elsewhere.

There's no reason for you to be hanging around here and attempting to argue with us. You didn't have a risk. You don't have to accept that evaluation. But we are not going to waste time with more back and forths with you.

As JK suggested, go elsewhere if you are not happy with the information you are getting here. HIV is not your problem.

I am giving you your second Time Out. This time it is for 56 days. Don't make the mistake of trying to get around it by creating a new account. We'll spot that right and it will get you banned permanently from this site.

HIV is not your problem. Period.

Laora,

You've been coming here for a year now and you should know that fingering is NOT a risk for hiv infection, regardless of cuts, scrapes or hangnails on your fingers.

Not one person has EVER been infected through fingering and you will NOT be the first.

Don't even think about coming back with more questions about this latest NO RISK situation. You have run out of time outs and this time, you will be permanently banned.

PLEASE CONSIDER YOURSELF WARNED!!!

Ann

You are again worrying needlessly. The area of the vagina which might have HIV+ fluids if the woman is positive is the cervical area, far up in the vaginal cavity. Your tongue would not be reaching that area.

Stop creating unnecessary worries for yourself. Get on with your life.

then why the doctors of medhelp DR H HUNTER,DR SEAN etc are saying cunnilingus is very low risk but here you are saying no risk.....even in the study of HIV+ & - couples they were on medicine that will suppress the viral load and reduce the risk to a great extent..withot medicine the risk will improves a lot...

"And oral sex is basically safe sex -- completely safe with respect to HIV and although not zero risk for other STDs, the chance of infection is far lower than for unprotected vaginal or anal sex. Please educate yourself about the real risks. If you stick with oral sex and condom-protected vaginal or anal sex, you have no HIV worries and very little worry about other STDs. " DR HANSFIELD

That is what he actually says.

You were not at risk...again.

And I am giving you one last warning about coming here over a non-risk. You've been here long enough to know what is risky: unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. That's it.

If you come back with more arguments you are going to find yourself getting a permanent ban from the site. Use condoms everytime for intercourse and you will be well protected. Yes, it really is that simple.

An adult is not at risk for sucking nipples even if the woman is lactating. Only an infant whose immune system has not become active would be at risk for HIV tranmission by sucking a nipple.

As an adult your immune system protects you very effectively in that situation. In addition your saliva contains over a dozen elements and proteins which very effective prevent the transmission of viable HIV.

You are worrying needlessly. And you have been coming here long enough to know what is risky and what isn't. You need to apply what we have told you in the past to your ongoing sexual experiences instead of coming here as if we have never talked with you before about risks and non-risks.

DR HOOK has said
Even if your exposure resulted in ingestion of breast milk your risk of HIV is very, very low.  Here is why:

1.  Statistically most exotic dancers are not HIV infected.
2.  Even if she was, ingestion of breast milk is low risk, analogous to oral sex.  The odds of getting HIV from oral sex (sorry there are no data on adults taking in breast milk) are estimated to be less than 1 in 10,000 IF your partner is infected.  Some experts go so far as to say there is no risk from oral sex.  Thus by analogy, ingestion of a few drops of breast milk would similarly be an almost no risk exposure.   

If you are nervous about this exposure, testing would be fine.  The test will almost certainly be negative.  Given the very low risk nature of your exposure, I would say that you could certainly be tested at 8 rather than 12 weeks and have great confidence in the result., At eight weeks following exposure 98-99% of all tests that are going to be positive will be - the extra month only picks up the last percent or so of positives..  Hope this helps.  EWH ...so he is saying tat still dere is a risk...m confused...so plz clarify me..plz

Laora,

Not one adult has ever been infected with hiv through breast milk. Only tiny babies who depend on breast milk as their sole source of nourishment are at risk from breast milk, and even those babies are not guaranteed to become infected.

If you put so much stock in the replies of the doctors over at the Body or MedHelp or where ever, I suggest you write to them instead of us in future. You'll have to anyway, because I'm giving you that permanent time out you've been warned about.

Remember to use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently and you will avoid hiv infection. Also remember to get yearly sexual health check ups, as the other STIs are MUCH more easily transmitted than hiv and many of them can be present with no obvious symptoms. The only way to know the true state of your sexual health is regular testing.

And please seek out the help of a mental health care professional. We cannot help you with your hiv phobia here.

You've been coming here long enough now to have been educated on what is and is not a risk for hiv infection. If we haven't gotten through to you by now, I see no hope for getting through to you in future. You are now permanently banned.

Ann


edited to add... While setting up your ban, I discovered that you have also been posting as mau and you set that account up during your (as laora) Time Out this past autumn. Your Time Out as mau was due to expire tomorrow, but you are now permanently banned under both names.

Please get the professional mental health care you so obviously need. We cannot provide you with that here and we will not tolerate multiple accounts set up to feed your paranoias and irrational fears.

Please let this be a warning to the rest of you who use this forum. You WILL be permanently banned for creating new accounts. We might not catch you right off, but catch you - and BAN you - we will.
