cut on penis and vaginal fluids-Risk for HIV?
« on: November 07, 2012, 06:40:22 AM »
Dear Doctor,

In an act of stupidity I went to a sex worker. I was a bit drunk.

First, she cleaned my penis and made me oral sex without a condom. Then she put me a condom and we did sex .  After a while I wanted more oral sex , so me or she took of the condom and she made me oral sex again. Then She put me another condom and we did sex again. Everything was alright with the condoms.

After vaginal sex, and because I couldn't come I took of the condom and started to masturbate over her tryng to ejaculate to her boobs. I couldn't come anyway. I got home, I washed myself and I started to masturbate again in my bed. While I was masturbating I noted a little cut on the top of my penis(external skin close to the head) , like a little abrasion. It looked freshy (clear liquid coming out of it)but it wasn't bleeding and it wasn't redish. It seemed like the first layers of skin has been cut.

So my concerns are:

1. Oral sex without the condom would be a risk?

2. The second time she performed oral sex on me her lips might got in contact with some leftover vaginal fluids on my penis. would that be a risk as well?

3. If while masturbating, still with the sex worker and the little cut was already there and I had some little vaginal fluid in my fingers and hand due to contact to condom or pubic hair and then touching that little cut, would that create a risk for me as well?

4. I would like to know as well if that cut had superficial bleeding if it would be a risk as well.

I hope you understand my questions...I am really concerned.

Thank you very much.

Dear Doctor,


Eumak,

The Welcome that appears at the top of every forum page reads:

Quote


All members of these forums are, by default, not considered to be licensed medical providers. If otherwise, users must clearly define themselves as such.




1. Getting a blowjob, with or without a condom, is NOT a risk for hiv infection. Not only is saliva not infectious, but it also contains over a dozen different proteins and enzymes that damage hiv and render it unable to infect.

2. NO.

3. NO. 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 human body, small changes in temperature, and pH and moisture content all quickly damage the virus and render it unable to infect. For this reason, any vaginal fluids on your penis would not be a concerned when you masturbated afterwards.

4.No.

You did all you needed to and used condoms for intercourse. That's all you need to do - condoms have been proven to prevent hiv infection.

There have been three long-term studies of couples where one is positive and one is negative. In the couples who used condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, but no barrier for oral activities, not one of the negative partners became infected with hiv. Not one.

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 SPECIFICALLY OVER A BLOWJOB OR PROTECTED INTERCOURSE, 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!

Dear Ann,

Thank you so much for your quick answer. Since you are not a doctor how can I trust this information ? Don't take me wrong... I just want to make sure everything is alright...

eumak,

I'm not a doctor, but I've been active in hiv prevention for nearly twelve years. I've studied the studies and have discussed hiv transmission in depth with doctors and other health care providers.

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

Thank you Ann!

Another question,

I'm thinking of doing a test this week which would be about a month after the exposure. In an hotline a guy told me that this would be a preliminary test and if it was negative. that would make 99.9% chance of being negative in the three months test. Is that true?

Thank you

Six weeks after is a better time for a test. A negative at that point means it is very likely to test negative at 3 months for a conclusive negative result.

In your case it's all moot. You did not have a risk so any testing is strictly just for your peace of mind and a negative result is a certainty.

eumak,

We do not permit people to use PMs as a means of getting around paying a subscription for participation in the Am I Infected forum. You have used up your three free posts.

If you didn't know about paying a subscription, then maybe you shouldn't have ignored the large and lengthy IMPORTANT UPDATE that appears at the top of each and every Am I Infected forum page, including this one.

You are not permitted to use PMs to ask questions dealing with hiv transmission and/or testing anyway.

I have removed your PM privilege.

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

Quote

Do NOT use Private Messages to question other members about any transmission, testing or symptom issues. These issues must be discussed in the public forum. Misuse of the PM function in this manner will result in your PM privileges being removed without warning.


Again, you DID NOT HAVE A RISK FOR HIV INFECTION and nothing you wrote in your PM changes that.
