Hand job by a masseuse
« on: June 26, 2012, 07:01:02 PM »
Hi,
I would like to know if I've contracted any HIV or any other STD virus.
I did the biggest mistake in my life by going to a massage parlour and the lady applied some thing(it appeared like oil and infact smelled like baby oil) on her hands before massaging my penis. The entire episode lasted only for 3 mins and the semen flowed over to her hands, she quickly removed her hands and wiped her hands using a paper tissue. I used another paper tissue to clean my penis and went home and washed the penis with soap.  My question is below -
1. Can I have contracted any HIV / STD virus from the above ?
2. I did a urine test the next day along with other blood tests, the urine test detected haemoglobin/myoglobin pigments and also ketones and protein. Is that some kind of indication that I've been infected with a virus?
3. Last 2 days, I had some mild pain in my penis(so mild that I thought could be psychological), can this be because of HIV/STD?
4. I had some red blisters(painless) on the far end of the sides(right and left) of the tongue? IS this because of the HIV virus or any other STD's? Just to let you know that I did have acid reflux 2 days back and could that have caused the red blisters on the sides of the tongue? When I see the tongue today, its much better than yesterday and day before.
I also did a complete blood test along with HIV and Hep B tests the next day and it came negative. While I'm aware of the window period, but I was too scared if I have contracted anything

Do you think I need to have an HIV test done ? Please Help

HIV is not transmitted by a handjob. You never had a risk.

Thanks for your quick response. What about the chances of any other STD's getting transmitted by hand job? Do you think I can be infected by any other STD?

Our focus here is strictly on HIV. I don't see the likelihood of any other STD through getting a handjob.

In general we do advise that anyone who is sexually active ought to at least annually have a full STD panel done. Other STDs are easier to acquire than HIV.

But this time out I don't see any problems likely for you.

Thank you so much. So does this mean, I should not worry as I'm not infected by the hand job and not carry out any further tests?

worried,

Forget about handjobs and hiv or other STIs. If you're worried about any of the stuff going on with you, see a doctor. It's nothing to do with the handjob.

Thank you so much for giving me peace of mind. One last question before I hang up.. while I'm feeling fine overall, only yesterday I masturbated and today I find mild pain in my penis. Its mild enough to be felt but nothing so bad.. Do you think this could be because of any STD's? just to let you know that I've never had sexual intercourse with anyone except my partner and the only thing I've done outside my relationship is the hand job.

Worried,

If your dick hurts, show it to a doctor. It has nothing to do with getting a handjob.

You did NOT have a risk for hiv infection. This is an hiv forum, not a "my dick hurts" forum.

If you read the Welcome Thread before posting like you're supposed to, you will have read the following posting guideline:

Quote

Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result or no-risk situation, will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). If you continue to post excessively after one Time Out, you may be given a second Time Out which will last eight weeks. There is no third Time Out - it is a permanent ban. The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.


Please consider yourself warned!

Thanks Ann. I was browsing through other sites and found the link below which says one can get HIV through hand job.

Worried,

Yeah. Whatever. And I can find internet pages that allegedly prove the earth is flat.

Get a grip. You got a handjob, now get over it. You didn't have a risk for hiv infection.

If you keep going on about your handjob, you WILL be given that time out you've been warned about.

This is your LAST warning!!!
