performing Oral sex with throat gonorrhea
« on: July 02, 2012, 01:47:15 PM »
Hi,

I performed unprotected oral sex on a stranger I did not know for approximately 10 seconds, he did not ejaculate in my mouth but there may have been some pre cum.

I tested positive for throat gonorrhea today so I am extremely anxious as I have read that this can increase the likelihood of contracting HIV from performing oral sex.

Please help me!

Gonorrehea would only have made you more vulnerable to HIV if you had an active case of it PRIOR to your having had sex. Your own saliva has over a dozen elements and proteins which provide a very effective barrier against the transmission of viable HIV.

The only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV sexually are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse.

You are worrying needlessly about HIV and there is no need for HIV testing unless you need the inevitable negative result just for your peace of mind.

Thank you for your reply, that's very comforting.

I did have throat gonorrehea before I gave this guy a blowjob. So that means I could have picked up HIV?

Thanks!

You KNEW you had throat gonorrhea and you sucked this guy? That's pretty irresponsible on your part.

If you had unprotected intercourse, you would have been at greater risk because the gonorrhea would have lowered your immune system. But that higher risk would not apply in relation to giving a blowjob.

You can get tested if you want but doing that would only be for your peace of mind as I would not expect anything other than a negative result.

Red Rash on testicle sack.. symptom of HIV?
« Reply #4 on: September 19, 2012, 04:17:44 PM »
Hi, I have noticed today that I have a non-itchy red rash on my ball sack. Since my last negative HIV test I have 3 sexual encounters of me receiving a blow jobs, that's it.

I am confused as i have read online that a red rash on the testicles can be a symptom of HIV? is this correct? could this be a HIV rash on my testicle sack?

Thanks

There are two main reasons why this is not an HIV situation:

A) The rash SOMETIMES accompanying HIV seroconversion is almost always on the trunk, not the extremities or the scrotum. It is flat and painless.

B) You had absolutely no risk for HIV in getting sucked off.

"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."

Dear,

As Jonathan said, you had absolutely NO risk for hiv when getting blowjobs.

However, you'd be wise to take your red ball-sack to your doctor and get it checked out. Whatever is going on, it has NOTHING to do with hiv for which you have not been at risk.
