Analingus with blood. how risky?
« on: May 14, 2012, 04:03:13 PM »
hi!

i am wondering how to determine if the rapid test kit you bought is fake.

i purchased CORE hiv 1+2 test kit and got tested. it was negative. i got one line so it meant negative. i didnt throw away the kit. after 2 days i checked the kit and i still see the line.

last year i got tested from a clinic using rapid test kit. i got a negative result. but i remember that after 30 minutes the kit didnt show the line that says negative. the kit has clear lines..


so i am wondering if i bought a fake test kit now. please help me to understand. thanks!

Monty, keep it simple and stop looking for problems where they don't exist.

If you had a risk for HIV sexually such as either unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse and you tested negative at 3 months afterward, then you are HIV negative.

It was 2 months ago when I had sex with someone. We were in a hotel room and lights were off. I was supposed to fuck him without condom but it didnt push thru. When I was rimming him I noticed a different taste. So I rimmed him for about 3 minutes. We stopped because I needed to pee. When I went to the bathroom I saw in the mirror that my mouth has blood stains. So the taste maybe from the blood in his anus. I am not sure if I swallowed some. but there was blood for sure while i was rimming him. maybe his anus got injured while i was trying to fuck him.

How risky is the blood from him and how does my saliva help to fight hiv infection? thanks for the response

Your risk for Hepatitis is real. Your risk for HIV is not. Your saliva provides adequate defense against HIV.

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."
