Am i infected
« on: February 10, 2012, 08:07:13 AM »
I visited a massage parlor recently and got a handjob (with cream).  the masseur may have touched the tip of my penis. then she got topless and she lied next to me. I touched her breasts and kissed them (though it was a dry kiss). she then wiped the cum with the napkin that she had. what are the chances that i may be infected.

You never had an exposure any any of the situations you've provided.

Not a chance of HIV in the scenario you have reported.

And you ought to know for future reference that the only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. As long as you always use condoms for those activities you will be well protected. It really is just that simple.

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

Many things cause a sore throat. You have been told that in your case, HIV is not such a cause.

If you feel ill, see a doctor. Failing that, suck a lozenge.

Please be aware that you will not be allowed to ask the same question over and over again.

Sorry guys, I have been really worried of the symptoms that are showing and that is the reason i have been asking this question repeatedly.  I have been having the swollen glands in my neck since the last week and am not really sure why it were to continue for so long. It was only 3 days since the potential exposure that i started getting the swollen glands. Is there any reason i should get tested?  If not for HIV than any other STD specifically?

Your response would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance

amit,

You really don't need to test for ANY STIs. You got a handjob. Get over it already.
