Specific practice, specific event
« on: January 21, 2013, 06:27:36 AM »
Dear Ann, Dear moderators,

I feel so anxious, that is why I am writing.

1st event :
I met an escort girl. No penetration we practiced self caresses.
She licked my testes. I had little cuts because I shaved myself in the morning. Actually, it was dry.
Then we tried a soft domination game and she cut me wit her nails. I was bleeding but not so much. It stopped by itself and just left scars.
What about body fluids on her nails or whatever from previous man (blood...) ?

2nd event :
There was a red stain on the light of my dentsit above my seat so he could not see it. I did not say nothing at that time.
He adjusted the light with his gloves, touched the stain (apparently it was not flowing, may be dry) and put directly my crown back in my bleeding jaw. Now the teeth is adjusted and won t move for a long time. It is deeply closed.
Is it an inoculation for HIV or hepatitis ?

Actually, those 2 events were not a big deal for me, but 3 weeks later, my doctor diagnosed me a severe pharyngitis, with fever, aches body wide, nodes in neck and one under my arm. I took antibiotics and it was gone in 3 days. But I read, many things on ARS and I am so scared. Here it is winter time, so may be it is a coincidence.
Please I need your specialist opinion.

Thank you for reading me

Your symptoms have nothing to do with HIV because nothing you are reporting put you at risk for the virus.

The only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. As long as you always wear condoms properly for those activities you will be well protected against HIV transmission.

If any symptoms persist you should discuss them with your doctor. They have nothing to do with HIV.

Thank you for your answers. I could not expect more. Actually I thought what I explained was a very low risk. In fact it seems to be nil.
I really feel confortable.
Now if and only if you can explain me why, it would be great for my knowledge.
Anyway, whatever you answer, I appreciate your help and support.
One more time thanks a lot.

Regards.

I don't have anything to add beyond what I have said previously as stated above. Get on with your life. Really.

Hello I hope you are doing well.
I was reading my own thread again. Could you please allow me to precise something concerning my wound and my bleeding with the escort girl in our soft domionation game.
Actually it was not only a little scratch. It was not a medical emergency but it was bleeding a little bit. No need to apply a band. Nevertheless scabs and little pain like hematoma were there for a few days. May be cuts around her nails but no bloddy vision. For sure vaginal secretions. Does the nature of the wound change the risk ?
Does it change the risk

Jnab, HIV is a fragile virus and is absolutely not transmitted in a viable form in the way you are concerned about.

Let it go and get on with your life. You were not at risk. Period.

Hello
I hope you are fine.
As you can see, I have waited more than 2 months before posting a new message concerning this bleeding cut on my leg by a prostitute when punching me and scratching me with nails or ring in a soft amateur domination game.

It is not about the severe pharyngitis and fever that happen 3 weeks later as you told me no symptoms were conclusive.

I noticed I forgot to mention that with that "punch & scratch"lesion, it was hurting me  when I applied pressure on it during 3 days. No hematoma visible, just a pain and no bleeeding that justify a strap.

Is this inflammation makes the hiv and hepC easier with eventual body fluids or blood present in the nails of this escort due to self caresses ?
She was also rubbing my face and my lips with her hands after self caresses.

I forgot to mention that when I read my 1st post again (sometimes I do it fo reassurance). And after this first post, I restart my sexual life in my couple ?
If you could help me again (and excuse my English from France) I would be so grateful.

Regards

Jnab,

As you have been repeatedly told, you have NOT had a risk for hiv infection.

If you cannot bring yourself to believe us, go test, collect your negative result and move on with your life.

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 doesn't matter if she had vaginal fluids on her nails when she scratched you.

As for hep C, it is not transmitted through vaginal fluids. It is only transmitted through blood - usually while someone is sharing drug injecting equipment. NOT scratches.

You can resume your sex life provided you always use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse. 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 OVER BEING SCRATCHED, 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!
