Hey! You need to stop spraying the forums with the same entry in each of several threads. I have deleted those duplicate threads. You need to follow our rule and only write in this one thread. You are not authorized to be writing in the threads of other members.

As for your concern, the only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. As long as condoms are used consistently for those activities you will be well protected.

Your saliva contains over a dozen elements and proteins which very effectively prevent the transmission of viable HIV, yes, even if the woman was menstruiating at the time. We don't diagnose symptoms here. There is nothing HIV specific about the ones you are reporting. If they persist you should discuss them with your doctor.

This is not an HIV situation. There is no need for HIV testing unless you feel you want the inevitable negative result simply for your peace of mind. You can do that anytime now since you are past the three month waiting period. But I don't think it is necessary.

Even if you had been with a sex worker, it's not WHO you are with but WHAT you do with that person sexually that matters. Meaning that as long as condoms are always used for vaginal or anal intercourse you will be well protected no matter who your partner is.

Stop looking for trouble. Neither the presence nor the absence of symptoms is ever the way to know your status accurately if you have a genuine risk. But you did not have a risky incident. Get on with your life.

And if you can't stop thinking about it, then get yourself some professional help to address the issue.

We can't help you with that in this setting.

Happily, HIV is not your problem. Get on with your life.

I also just have one question that dont have unswer aldo i read a lot of post here on forum.
I read one post from one guy having problem with STD.And Ann said that unprotected oral :,,Getting a blowjob carries the risk of gonorrhea, chlamydia, herpes, and syphilis. Going down on a woman carries the risk of herpes and syphilis. ''
My question is if you can say to me only what is a symptoms or oral herpes and syphilis (from cunninglus), and what is a period of incubation if it happens.
Than you people.I just only what to know this and i whant post anything alse.
Thank you you good people

Steve,

Herpes creates open sores that are very painful. The first outbreak is often accompanied by a flu-like illness. When herpes infects the oral area, it is commonly called a "cold sore" and less commonly a "fever blister". You may already have this - around 80% of the world's population does. Herpes is in the same family of viruses that cause chickenpox and shingles.

Syphilis creates open sores (called chancres) that are NOT painful and for this reason they often go unnoticed. Syphilis shares a three month testing window with hiv for a negative result.

Many STIs can be present without any obvious symptoms so if you are in doubt, testing is the only way to know for sure. As a sexually active adult, you should be having a complete sexual health check-up at least once a year or more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.
