hand job
« on: September 10, 2006, 12:47:23 AM »
Went for a massage and the girl gave me a handjob. She was fully clothed, no sex though I touched her Virginia via her underwear.
Had 2-3 opened wounds, though no blood, on the left base side of my penis.. I did not notice any cuts or blood on her hand, though I am scared of the possibility
Like to know the risk level. Pls help to reply asap as I am getting more paranoid.  Thanks

Well the "risk level" for this incident is none. Please take the time to read our Welcome Thread to learn about how HIV is and is not transmitted.

That said, all sexually active people should have a full STD screen at least twice a year. A full screen includes an HIV antibody test. Other STD's such as gonorrhoea, chlamydia and genital herpes are much more prevalent and contagious than HIV. If it's been a while since your last full screen or if you've not had one before you might consider making an appointment with your doctor or local clinic.

HIV is not transmitted as a result of handjobs.

Thanks for the reply.
So I do not need a test, right?
Is there any case similar to mine that was positive?

Apples,

In over twenty-five years of this pandemic, NOT ONE person has ever been infected with hiv through getting a handjob or any thing else you describe.

You did not have a risk and you do not need to test, unless it is part of a routine sexual health care check up. You only need one of those if you are sexually active - that means having anal or vaginal intercourse and you only need to test once a year, twice a year if you have several different partners.

You do NOT need to test over your massage experience.

Menstural blood
« Reply #4 on: October 28, 2006, 06:07:28 AM »
Had an encounter where the girl sat on my tigh. Later, i notice a blood stain on my tigh.(i was wearing pants)  Later, she  had some leaking of mustrual blood on her skirt. I put some newspapers on the car seat and drove her to the nearest toilet. When she got up, there was blood on the newspapers. I folded the papers and put it on the car's floorboard. I do not think I touched any blood.

After she cleaned up, She sat on the same piece of newspaper and I drove her home

I lick her nipple a couple of times

Am I at risk? Pls help to answer soon, thanks

Even if you had touched the blood that is not an activity which would have put you at risk. MAYBE if she was definitely HIV+ and IF you had a substantial freshly open bledding wound on your hand then MAYBE there would have been some risk.

Get my drift? You are way overanxious without any basis in HIV science. If you haven't already done so, please read the lesson on transmission, which can be found through a link in the Welcome thread that opens this section.

You weren't in any way at risk for HIV in this situation but you do need to become better educated about transmission in general.

Cheers,
Andy Velez

Thanks for the reply. I am anxious because about 2 weeks after the encounter, I experienced some pain and strain on the right side of my groin. I still am experiencing this pain. I am afraid that it would be related to the encounter. You know, when the  girl sat on me and  her blood  could have come into contact with any cut openings on my body or on my penis.  I have read up about the disease but the doubt abnd fear is still there.

So, is there any possibility of such a case happening?

Apple,

You have already been told you weren't at risk or in any danger over this incident. Yes, we understand blood was involved. Yes, we understand she sat on your leg and got some on your pants. Yes, we understand that you drove her somewhere she could clean up and then you drove her home. Yes, we understand you handled the blood-stained newspaper she sat on in your car. Yes, we understand you licked her nipple.

Now, YOU need to understand that we are telling you that you were not at risk during any of these incidents. Not one of them. You had no risk. End of story.

Feelings of pain and strain in your groin has nothing to do with hiv. Go see your doctor - you may have a hernia from lifting something incorrectly. Whatever is going on, it has nothing to do with hiv and only your doctor can tell you for sure what may or may not be wrong.

I've merged your threads here. It's a rule of the site to only use one thread for all of your entries. So this is where you should always write if you have occasion to do so in the future.

As for your latest concern, you are worrying needlessly. As long as you used condoms for each of those experiences then you were well protected. If a condom had broke you would have known it because it's very visible and the condom looks like a hoop with fringe on your penis.

Your symptoms are not HIV specific in any way. If they persist you should discuss them with your doctor.

This is not an HIV situation. Period.

Thanks Andy for the quick reply
Just that I check on info on other websites that indicated the syntoms
I have now.
Especially the rashes which I have been having on and off for about 3 months
Also, found some pimples on my body that was mentioned as syntoms in these
websites
My eyes tend to get blurry a little more frequent now

Is there a possibility that infection took place even when I wore condoms?
Or after I took the condoms out, there was some seapage into the penis?

There is no such thing as "seepage" through a condom to your penis. Condoms provide very effective protection.

You should be discussing your symptoms with your doctor instead of self-diagnosing with HIV, which you don't have. And do yourself a big favor and stay off of surfing the net. All you will do is find fuel for your fears to no good purpose.

HIV is not your problem. Period. Don't bother giving more details about your symptoms. They have nothing to do  with HIV.

Hi! Need your assistance with this query -

I am still having rashes on my body
The rash on my 2 outer elbows has not completely gone away
Sometimes its itch.
Now, the rash has appeared on the left side of my body.
Doctor said could due to sensitve skin or something I eat.

The Doctor's dermasone cream did not stop the itch.
I am going crazy with 'hiv' thoughts
Have always been careful to use condom for oral and virginal sex. No anal
If this is protected sex and safe, why am I having this rash syntoms?

Pls help with reply

As you have already been told you did not have a risk for HIV. And just because you are still having symptoms that bother you does not by default mean that HIV is the cause. Because it isn't. You should be discussing your problems with your doctor.

There is nothing more we can do for you here in this setting because HIV is not the problem.
