masturbated after touching privates
« on: March 02, 2014, 05:01:55 AM »
Dear helpline team
I met a girl ( status unknown ). I touched her privates and kissed her once( Lip kiss). I did not indulge in any sex (oral, anal or vaginal).Then i masturbated using my hand. I want to know if HIV can transmit this way?
I dont have  have any active bleeding cuts or wounds on my hand. Also she was sitting in my car so i could have never inserted my finger inside her vagina. Meaning as far as i remember i didnt feel wet on my hand ( I was not under influence of alcohol/ drugs, i dont take anyway). But i am expecting worst case scenario that something from her vagina might have touched my penis during masturbation. Please help. I didnt even touch my penis to her vagina so forget about penetrative sex. Will i be fine?
I have spoken to one of doctor and he is saying HIV wont transmit this way. This was first and last of something i have done in my life. Will never ever think about.
Please understand that i am in anxiety.

I request you to please reply

Ronan,

You did not have a risk.  HIV is a very fragile virus that does not survive once outside of the body.

The risk factors for HIV are ...

Sharing IV drug needles immediately after use.
Unprotected anal and vaginal sex.
Mother to child during or shortly after birth.
Very specific healthcare situations.

Use condoms for vaginal and anal sex consistently and correctly and you will avoid HIV infection, it is that simple.

Dear joe thanks for addressing my fears. I didnt mention the girl was some commercial one. There is one or two things i want to ask.
1) Can i sleep peacefully? and stay assured that i have not contracted HIV. This was first and last of something i have done in my life. I am not sexually active with partners outside my marriage and as i said i didnt have sex with this girl also

Hi Ronan . You did not have a risk, no has ever been infected from masturbation and you will not be the first .

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

Although you did not have a risk and do not need to test for this specific incident , anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results.

Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv. Some of the other STIs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

Thank you jeff for replying. I am not sexually active outside my marriage and as i wrote i didnt have sex with this girl too ( oral, vaginal or anal). I just touched her privates and kissed her lips.... My only concern was if something from her vagina might have touched my penis while i was masturbating with my own hands. I understand that i might be asking something which might be too small to answer. But jeff i will abstain from anything outside my marriage now. I made a mistake and want to sleep assured. Brother jeff please reply. May god bless you!
