Should I worry
« on: August 14, 2011, 06:49:10 AM »
Hi I am abit worried, after a girl give me a hand job, and blow job. That's all that happened. Until I ejaculated, now I'd not worry normally. Just there was a small cut on my penis and that's why I'm worried.

Do I need to be concerned over this ?

Thank you very much for your time.

Steve,

Getting a blowjob is not a risk for hiv infection and neither is mutual masturbation. Cuts do not matter.

Hi i am really worried about this, The thing is i stayed with a girl last night, but we didn't have sex or anything, just she was on her period, and she had put her hand down my boxers and started to wank me for about a minute. (sorry for been blunt) but when we woke up there was blood on her pajama bottoms.

So i am really worried if any was on her had and then came into contact with my penis.

Do i need to worry over this ?

Many Thanks for your help.

Hi Steve,

I've merged your threads here. In the future if you have occasion to write in again, please follow our rule and always write in this same thread. Thanks for your cooperation.

Now, about your latest concern. You are worrying needlessly. HIV is a fragile virus. Sexually the only confirmed means of transmission are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. It is not passed in the manner you are concerned about, not even if she had gotten some of her blood directly on to your penis.

There's no need for testing nor for further concern. To protect yourself from HIV sexually all you need to do is always without exception use a condom every time you have vaginal or anal intercourse. It really is that simple.

Hi Andy thanks for you reply.

I just have one more question, What if the blood was fresh and made contact with my penis.

Would it be ok to put this event behind me now ?

Thanks.

HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.

You are worrying needlessly. "Contact" with blood is very different from an unprotected penis inside a vagina or an anus. You did not have a risk. Period.

Thank you every one for all your replies.

I have a few more questions if you don't mind as i am really worried.

I had PROTECTED sex a number of times with the same women, but i had noticed some cuts on the inside of my thighs right by my groin area, like in between the scrotum and leg, (sorry for the detail) So what i am worried about is if some vaginal fluid had got onto these cuts. as some did get on my scrotum.

i am not sure how the cuts are there, maybe from exercise with friction as i do karate and have to kick alot so maybe from that.

Another question is i had cuts on my hands to very small, but i am worried about that as i handled the condom after sex.

Should i worry about any of these ?

Thanks you very much for all your time.

The risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are two and specifically unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. That's it. Use condoms everytime for those and you will be well protected.

And yes, you are worrying unnecessarily. Get on with your life.

Thank you very much for the fast replies..

Just one more question. Would it still be no risk even if the cuts where fresh ?

Thanks you
