PLEASE, HELP-ME :/
« on: March 15, 2013, 09:52:55 PM »
Well, I am Brazilian, I can not move right on forums, so forgive probable errors.

In February, I was a stranger, I masturbated him and then he really sucked, he sucked me, and finally he ejaculated in my mouth was little, and I spit.
However I had mouth sores, and I think infectei.

Relevant data: three days after the incident, did a test, was negative. 30 days after the incident, did another test, was negative.
TESTS DO NOT take it anymore.
But'm with symptoms like cutaneous rash in the thorax, pain muscular, fatigue and lack of concentration, and all these are yes-phase symptoms acute.

I read your question carefully and I understand . You did NOT have a risk for HIV in this situation but if you wish to test anyway you can do so at 6 weeks and then again at 3 months for a conclusive negative result .

The symptoms you described are not specific symptoms of an HIV infection and you cant tell by symptoms anyway . You need not test over the incident but keep in mind that testing is the only way to screen for HIV , not looking over symptoms and guessing .

But I hate to take the test, and I hate even more anxiety etc, and am terrified of conclusive results. I can already buy antiretrovirals for taking clandestine way to go?

Cedric, I agree with Jeff that you are worrying unnecesarily. So for you if you were to get tested it would only be for your peace of mind to collect the inevitable negative result. You have no basis in HIV science to be worried about HIV.

Nothing in your symptoms is in anyway HIV specific. No surprise there because you weren't at risk. If your symptoms persist you should discuss them with your doctor. HIV is not the cause.

You do not need to test over this incident and you will remain HIV negative if you use condoms consistently and correctly for vaginal and anal sex .

Sexual health checkups that include HIV testing and screening for all other STD's are the responsible thing to do and you should be having them at least once a year if not more often if you are lucky enough to enjoy a robust sex life .

Your comments about taking PEP in a clandestine way is troubling and it seems to me that going this route is ill advised and would ultimately cause more anxiety than simply excepting your responsibility's to your self and facing your fears in a healthy proactive way . I suggest you get some counseling to get past your issues with HIV risk and testing .

So, regardless of cuts in your mouth, I went through some risk? There is no need to retest?

No risk, no need to test.

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."
