lesbians 's sex practise risk and periodes
« on: October 04, 2012, 10:58:15 AM »
Hi all,

This is my story. I slept with a bisexual woman early July. We discussed the following day, she gave me spoken of her ex girlfriend revealing to me in passing that her ex girlfriend was seropositive and remained two years.
So, I flipped as ever, although it assured me that she had done all test negative, and the last dated back to June, during a routine doctor's visit.

Her relationship with his ex-girlfriend is two and a half years, she has provided to be negative, and turned even a little annoyed at my taking anxiety, stating that I did not trust her.

I wanted to know if my fear could be based,

she did a cuni for a short time, like several seconds,
as she put her fingers for a few seconds as before I do not remember having my periode. So I looked at her fingers, she had no injuries, at least not visible.
I put my fingers on her for a long time, I had no lesions on the fingers.
She also had several female ejaculation, it remained on the sheets, but then it was still being slightly astride me, It did not goes in my private parts.

So, it's been three months since I was freaking dead, and I'm really stressed.

Was there a risk of transmission in the practices that we have done?

couple of days after our night, I went home (it was vacation) and I turn so tired for almost one week, sleeping a lot, staying in the bed. It could be the jetlag, but well, I don't know.
In August I had a gastric reflut with my stomach, following with a diahree ( probably because of the gastric reflu, I don't know ...), and those last days, I loose this gastric reflu by myself withou any medecine, just a diete to calm down my stomach, It worked, but I got since couple of days one small and indolore ganglions in each part on my neck, and  a little one like a 1 euro money in both part of my aiselle.

If I did not ve all this anxiety over the vih, I ll not take care about those little deasease i ve been through, but I can t hold myself to rely all of that to the possibly contamination cause of my periode.

So I just wanted to know if it could happens with the sexual practises we ve done, in supposition she was positive ?

Thanks you a lot

Neka,

Fingering or being fingered are not risks for hiv infection. Having oral sex with a woman isn't a risk either.

You have not had a risk for hiv infection.

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED TO TEST FOR HIV SPECIFICALLY AFTER FINGERING OR ORAL SEX, anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results.

Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv. Some of the other STIs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

Thanks for this quick respônde,

I can beleive fingering is not a risk, but I was more worry over the fact of having my periods during that ...
So, I turned very stressed and interpretated all my physical change like rely to an infection because when I came back in france, I turned very sleepy for one week.
And this gastric reflu, I am not use to ve this type of gastric disease, started to think that my body defense could get lower than before cause of the infection.

Your symptoms have nothing to do with HIV as Ann has already told you. If they persist you should discuss them with your doctor. Fears are not facts and the facts of your situation clearly indicate you were not at risk for HIV.

Thank for you responde, I feel ashame to bother the topic if it's not seems to be a big deal, but I ve been thinking about it since July, sometimes turned very scared just with my conflict thought. Start to think in details, and if some of her secretions went into my private area, and I did not feel it ? Cause she had a lot of secretions

Anyway, I thanks you both for your responde,

N.

Neka,

You have nothing to be ashamed about. It's not your fault that hiv education is sorely lacking in most parts of the world. That doesn't change the fact that you were not at risk for hiv infection.

Hiv is a fragile, difficult to transmit virus that is primarily transmitted INSIDE the human body, as in unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse where the virus never leaves the confines of the two bodies.

Once outside the body, small changes in temperature, and pH and moisture levels all quickly damage the virus and render it unable to infect. For this reason, it does not matter if her vaginal fluids got all over you - it happened OUTSIDE the body.

Lesbians are the one group of people on this planet who have very low rates of hiv infection - because the sexual practices lesbians engage in are highly unlikely result in hiv being transmitted. Most lesbians who are hiv positive got it from either having unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse with a man, or by sharing drug injecting equipment - NOT by having sex with other women.

You have  NOT had a risk for hiv infection.
