Adrian,

You're not going to get a different answer to the ones you had at MedHelp - an adult sucking nipples is NOT going to become infected with hiv through that activity. Only tiny babies who rely solely on breast milk for their nourishment are at any risk for hiv infection if the mother is hiv positive. Even then, transmission is not guaranteed.

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 OVER NIPPLE SUCKING, 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!

Yes, that's right. Based on what you have reported of your activities, you can safely have unprotected intercourse with your wife.

Adrian,

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.


Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. IT REALLY IS THAT SIMPLE!!!

Adrian,

I've merged your new thread into your original thread - where you should post all your additional thoughts or questions. It helps us to help you when you keep everything in one thread. It doesn't matter how long it has been since you last posted in your thread or if the subject matter is different.

If you need help finding your thread when you come here, click on the "Show own posts" link under your name in the left-hand column of any forum page.

Please also read through the Welcome Thread so you can familiarize yourself with our Forum Posting Guidelines. Thank you for your cooperation.



Fingering is NOT a risk for hiv infection. You absolutely DO NOT NEED PEP.

In adults, hiv is transmitted by:

Unprotected anal intercourse.

Unprotected vaginal intercourse.

Sharing drug injecting equipment.

And that's it.

Please re-read your entire thread. You've already been told how to protect yourself against hiv infection.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. IT REALLY IS THAT SIMPLE!!!

Thank you Ann very much and apologies for the error. So the paper cut would make no difference in the risk profile and can continue with my normal life... hopefully :) thanks again

Adrian,

No. A papercut absolutely does NOT change the fact that fingering is NOT a risk for hiv infection.

Hi Ann, and the risk of her menstruating or climaxing does not change the risk in any way. Secondly would like to give a donation now via papal is that possible?

NO!!!

What part of "FINGERING IS NOT A RISK FOR HIV INFECTION" don't you understand?

You've already given a "donation" when you took out a subscription earlier today. You can contribute more funds in the same way, but do NOT expect to be able to continue going on about this NO RISK situation just because you've donated.

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!

Do you really think we would advise taking potentially toxic medications for a no risk situation . You have already been warned so take it to heart that you did not have a risk and can now move on .

Will throw what box away? If you're talking about hiv meds (PEP), if they're still sealed take them back to the pharmacy where you got them so someone else can have them. YOU DO NOT NEED THEM.

They're expensive and it's a crime against humanity to throw them away when so many in the world have to do without them and DIE.

You're an inch away from being given a time out.
