I had sex with another man last night and he came on my upper thigh near my penis. I was wondering if the semen could have rubbed up against my urethra or maybe dripped down to my anus and infected me. I've read the welcome thread and you guys say that HIV can't be transmitted if you have safe sex...but I was reading Stache BC's story and he seems to have tested positive even though he had protected sex. also...I used lotion one time instead of regular lube. the condom didn't break but, I heard that lotion puts holes in a condom. this stuff is scary. conflicting info and all.

Your warts are still worrying needlessly and I suspect you really know that. And just want some attention. Or whatever.

More no risk experiences.

I've merged your threads here. Stop starting new threads. Keep your comments in this one thread or you'll end up being given a a time out.

Like I said no risk. No need for testing.

Just keep looking for things to feed your fears and I guarantee you will find them.

Other undocumented reports notwithstanding, as long as you consistently use condoms for intercourse you aren't going to have any HIV problems. Giving oral is at the low end of the risk scale and the few reports of transmission in that manner are far outweighed by longterm studies which affirm that it's not a risk.

Get productively busy in your life and stop looking for trouble.

I am worried abnout one more thing. I recently had sex with a transvestite prostitute. I used a condom but it was slipping during sex. It never slipped all the way off, but it did slip about half way off. I am very worried about this. How much of a risk does this pose?

None. As long as the head of your penis was covered you had no risk. Condoms come in small sizes and I suggest that you find a smaller size that fits you.

okay. please help me. I know I have been to this board multiple times and it is obvious that I have some sort of internal problem and I should just get tested so that my mind can be clear. that being said, here is my current conundrum. About a week ago I had sex with a transexual escort. I had protected anal (me being the insertive partner) and unprotected oral (where I was both the giver and the receiver. also I performed annilingus on her/him. now, three days later I have white pus on my tonsils. they are red and my throat hurts. I have been reading up online (which I know you guys discourage) and stumbled upon a study that says that tonsils are the primary infection site if oral transmission were to occur. I also keep reading stories of how people swear that they were infected by giving oral. I also had numerous nicks and cuts on my genital area from shaving two days prior to the encounter. please help so I can calm myself and get on with my studies. I have a problem I know and you guys are probably sick of the same ol ****.

OK.

You were not at risk of HIV infection from this encounter.

Why not? Because you had protected intercourse. The unprotected oral you describe is not a risk for HIV infection.

As for your diseased tonsils, we cannot help you with that except to say that they have nothing to do with HIV. You should show them to a doctor. Here's a tip though. Arseholes are dirty things. Shit comes out of them. Maybe you shouldn't be surprised that you have a sore throat after you've been munching butt.

yeah I know, I am to blame. I went to the doctor today and requested an std panel (minus the HIV). she kept denying my request and told me I just had a bacterial infection and she wouldn't test me for herpes or gonorrhea. Then she hinted that I could have gotten AIDS from this encounter (which lied and told her was heterosexual oral in nature). I hate doctors. I feel I know more than they do sometimes. It is hell trying to find an STD clinic. and the one that I did find here in Atlanta said that I had to bring "proof of income". what in the heck is that all about? I just wanna get a freaking gonorrhea test man. I don't have proof of income cause I am a full-time student. and why do so many people claim to get infected via oral? can everybody be wrong?

So let me get this right.

You went to a doctor who diagnosed a bacterial infection of the throat and denied your request for an STD panel. She then went on to hint that you have AIDS but won't test you for that either?

You don't and I find it very hard to believe that a doctor would suggest that you could have contracted HIV infection but not mention the need to test.

This is not an HIV situation. You do not need to test.

For a variety of reasons. Oral sex is seen as less "sinful" than anal sex. Many don't want to admit to what they really did. You know, like you don't want to tell that doctor you're a queer.

That's about what I expected you to say.  To be honest, I don't believe you.  First off, it's harder to find a taxi in Atlanta than it is to find an STD clinic.  Second, I don't buy the story you're selling about the way your doctor behaved during your alleged visit, and if your story was true, this site should be exposed for malpractice.  There is no legitimate medical practitioner in this day and age that would behave as you describe.  Third, if you are a student, you should be able to contact a campus nurse for this testing (or at the very least a referral).  For that matter, there would almost certainly be such information available through the campus' website or even at the student center.  Failing any of the above, fourth:  pick up a Creative Loafing or one of the local gay rags freely available around Atlanta (even in the Brookhaven area) and start dialing.

okay, so maybe I didn't look hard enough for an STD clinic. the one in DeKalb county said that they required "proof of income" in order to see me. they only had two inconvenient times where they do the testing - 8 AM and 12 noon. I am asleep in the former and at school at the latter time. I have no need to come on here and lie - especially about something this petty.

and believe it our not, but the school nurse referred me to this particular STD clinic (the one with the mandatory income proof requirement). I can look harder to find a clinic I am sure. I promise you, that the doctor didn't want to give me a herpes/gonorrhea test. I will post more info if she calls me back. And sorry to burst your bubble, but the medical industry has its shortcomings - including doctors who were passed through medschool to meet quotas, doctors who have limited knowledge in a particular area , doctors who barely understand English, etc. Some doctors are not qualified to practice and still manage to do so.

Well, there we have it.  You must not really be all that concerned about this STD testing if it still falls further down the priority ladder than your beauty rest.

As for "proof of income", you can probably get this information from your campus.  If not there, the Department of Labor can print you out a wage statment (even if that wage is a big, fat "0") in under 2 minutes.  That office is oh-so conveniently located near you...right down North Druid Hills Road.  

You don't need to test for this as you were not at risk here, but quality resources are available to you in your area.  Don't even go there trying to tell me that they aren't.  I know.

okay - back again this time guys. I had an encounter with a transsexual prostitute last night.  She gave me oral (unprotected). After - I noticed she had a gaping hole in her right hand - it had red (looked dried) blood around it. It wasn't running blood to my knowledge. I asked her where she got it from and she said she had fell when drunk. She had used this same hand to grab my penis to give me the oral.  What if some of the blood moved from her hand to my penis?

Fella, you have been coming here long enough to know the answer to this one. She could have WASHED your dick in in blood and it wouldn't have been a risk. You're getting back on to the WHAT IF WORRY TRAIN and you need to get off right now.

It's really very simple. The only confirmed risks for sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. That's it.

last night I had sex with a gay male of unknown HIV status. I sent him an email today to ask about his status but have not heard anything back yet. I was the insertive partner. I used a condom but I think the condom slipped a little bit and then I heard the condom snap upon one of my insertions. I'm not sure how deep my penis went, but I pulled out immediately after hearing the snap and removed the (for sure) broken condom and replaced it. This is the first time I have ever had a condom break on me. I didn't see any blood anywhere on my penis after removal, but I didn't do a very thorough inspection.

I am so worried right now and feel like getting PEP treatment. Is this even necessary? Was the condom snapping sound when the condom broke or could it have broken before? I felt like the condom had slipped some because I could feel the intercourse a bit on the base of my penis.

Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result or no-risk situation, will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). If you continue to post excessively after one Time Out, you may be given a second Time Out which will last eight weeks. There is no third Time Out - it is a permanent ban. The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.

No, PEP is absolutely not warranted in this instance. Your risk was minimal and very, very brief. The only reason for testing in this case is just to be cautious. I don't have any serious doubts you will test negative.

Testing is at 13 weeks although you can test initially at 6 weeks. A negative at 6 weeks will be most unlikely to change to positive at 13 weeks.

Given your history here as a self-described "worry wart," I am going to caution you that we're not prepared to hand hold you during the waiting period. Again, your risk was minimal. Get on with your life, test at the appropriate point(s) and ultimately I expect you to come out of this ok.

it's been over half a year since I last posted. Condom breakage is a much different concern than my previous ones. I also got a recommendation from Dr.HHH that PEP may be warranted since the partner's status is unknown. I'm flipping out right now because I don't really want to take PEP (I cant afford to be sick right now) but I don't want to get HIV either. And I've read on the board that there is some risk here so it's not really a no-risk situation

Let's not get sidetracked here by your response to Rod's posting.

I answered your concerns very specifically and told you as I repeat now, that I don't see PEP as being warranted. This was a brief, single time possible exposure. HIV is significantly harder to transmit from female to male than the other way around. If I thought there was a real risk for transmission I would say so. In my opinion your risk was very low.

But of course you ultimately will have to make the decision about what you want to do.

I understood it was male/male. But you were the penetrating partner which means your risk was significantly less. My evaluation still stands.

You have a limited time to start PEP. I don't think it's necessary but you'll have to make the decision.

Unless it is a big hospital they may not carry it. For 28 day supply it's over 1000 dollars.

would it be safe to say that this risk is at the lower end of the scale?

well, I've pretty much decided not to go through with the PEP treatment. I say 'pretty much' because I have a few hours left in the 72 hour window period but I doubt I'll go. I already owe thousands in medical bills for times when I took illegal drugs and thought I was overdosing - but I was really just having a panic attack.

also, since the risk was minimal, I dont want to be on 28 days of very strong medicine for not that great of a reason.

I am also pretty sure (though not 100 percent) that I pulled out as soon as I heard the snap -and this I think is the point at which it would logically seem that the condom broke. after the snap, I pulled out and looked at my penis and the condom was in shambles on my shaft. I had looked at the condom before the snap and it was not in ruin at my shaft.

I hope I'm not a statistical anomaly and this all works out.

You mention that the risk is much less than the insertive partner. Is this a similar risk to the one that an insertive partner faces in a male-female situation??

Thanks for all your help. I will have to take a boatload of xanax to go get tested. I have extreme anxiety but I will do it.
