What is the risk for my bf?
« on: February 05, 2011, 08:05:15 PM »
My bf and I had a sexual encounter earlier and it's our first little incident of panic.  I'm poz, he's neg.  After playing around, I noticed a little blood when we were done.  I know he put his finger in me sometime during, so we looked at his fingers to make sure....  One has a small "cut", though I don't see any of his blood, so I wouldn't call it an open wound.  It's like along the edge of the nail where the skin sometimes has those little flaps?  What is his risk?  His finger wasn't in there very long, but I don't want to take any risks, nor does he.  He's really freaking out, so I said let's go get a PEP prescription.  Should he do PEP, or is there even any risk here?  What does that involve exactly?

There is NO RISK associated with fingering your anus, even with blood. AIDSMEDS has a VERY thorough and science-based transmissions lesson, which I hope you will take time to read.

Wear a condom for penetrative anal sex and you will be fine. It really IS that simple.

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."

-Kimberly Page-Shafer, PhD, MPH

Thanks.  I did a bunch of research that night and came to the same conclusion.  We had never dealt with blood before and I think it just freaked us out a bit.

Yer, blood is kinda to the fore, but the previous advice is well said - matt
