Worried about Unprotected Oral
« on: December 09, 2012, 10:57:33 AM »
Hi All

I recently received an unprotected oral sex from a CSW 19 days back. She also kissed me for quite sometime and I touched her vagina with my fingers. All these went on for 40 mins approx.

I never had any anal/vaginal sex with her but now I am worried to death about being HIV positive. Everytime I am searching internet I am reading some articles or the other which says its possible.

Could you please let me know my chances of contracting HIV. Which conclusive tests shall I go for and after how many days.

I would really appreciate if you help me out.

Getting oral sex is one of the most common of sexual activities. In the entire history of the epidemic, there has never been a single case of transmission confirmed to a man through his having received oral sex. It's safe to say that you will not make history by becoming the first.

There's no need for HIV testing.

Only unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse are confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV. As long as you properly use condoms for those activities you will be well protected.

On with your life now...

Hi Andy

Thanks for your reply. Anxiety because of this have taken a huge toll of my life.

Could you please let me know how the chances are if she had bleeding gums or cuts or sores in her mouth.

Would you recommend a PCR RNA Test?

Bleeding gums and cuts have never been implicated in HIV transmission, and neither has getting oral sex. Not in the thirty recorded years of statistical gathering, nor in the three serodiscordant studies.

You have had absolutely no risk for HIV at all.

As you were advised above. You had no exposure.

HIV is transmitted by;
Unprotected penetrative anal and/or vaginal sex
Sharing works with other IV drug users
Mother to child

Hi All

I have recently involved myself in a stupid incident at a oriental massage centre. I had a full body massage and at the end the lady offered a topless unprotected handjob with oil. I am verry worried about this incident and am anxious about the fact if I have put myself to risk of HIV.

I did not see if the lady had cuts in her hand or not. Also if anything in her hand from her previous customer might cause HIV.

Please help me. I am really worried.

Hi Jeff

I am sorry. My earlier post had different subject so I posted my current exposure under diff subject line.

I did not notice if she had any cuts in her hand also if any left over from her previous client on the bed or in her hand. So I am a bit worried. Do you recommend and tests. I just cant sleep after this incident.

Regards

Is there a possibility of the massage oil being contaminated with HIV from the previous client.

Is there a possibility of blood from cuts of her hand entering my urethra.

Neither of those things pose the remotest possibility of HIV transmission. HIV is a fragil virus and can only be transmitted INSIDE the body through unprotected anal and vaginal sex. No other form of sexual contact carries a risk.

You have been told this over and over, and I must warn you that you will not be allowed to continually ask the same questions over and over again.
