My life is end?
« on: March 06, 2013, 05:05:48 PM »
First of all, I would like to give me facts, theories and research-based, you can not imagine the confusion in which I find myself.

I am 18 years old, had relations with a stranger: he kissed, masturbated him and did oral sex on him. He did not ejaculated, but released two doses of precum, which I promptly spit. And above all, take into consideration that yes, I had sores / micro cuts in the language and perhaps on the side of my mouth.

Days passed and I felt muscle aches, and searched the internet and saw that it could be a sign of acute illness. From then on, my life became hell, for any pain that occurs in me, I now associate with AIDS.
You say that oral sex does not pose a risk, but other people on various websites say the risks are minimal, but there are. This way I get lost.
My grades in school dropped, I do not want to do anything else, just sleep and sleep and reflect on whether or not infected.
About 4 weeks after the incident, I did a HIV test and it was negative, but it ensures that I'm not even infected?
I count on you, it looks like my head will explode.

Hi Paul .

I read you question very carefully and you did not have a risk for HIV .

There have been no fewer than three separate serodiscordant couples studies (where one person is HIV positive, the other negative.) These couples were tracked for three. five and ten years. The couples used condoms for penetrative vaginal and anal sex, but NO BARRIER at all for oral sex. Any kind of oral sex.

These studies yielded NO infections.

You used up two of your 3 questions begging for a quick answer because you have become so worked up and upset over a no risk situation , I'm going to remove two of them so that you can ask another question if you want to but the answers I gave you aren't going to change because you do NOT need to test for HIV again over this no risk sex you had .

First, thanks for having deleted my posts, I was really nervous.

But tell me, even with the cuts in the mouth, there would be no risk of precum into my bloodstream?

There are dozens of enzymes in saliva that damage HIV and render it unable to infect .

This one of the many reasons the study I mentioned is relevant , oral sex isn't risky sex where HIV is concerned . Its safe for you to relax and put your concern aside and move on with your life .

So I can stop worrying? No risk of precum have infected my blood? And no need to redo HIV test?

Thank you for your attention, and excuse me if I seem too incredulous, but that seems like a dream return to live my life normally ...
