nightmarish anxiety
« on: April 03, 2013, 09:31:47 AM »
I have read a lot of the post re. the risk of receiving oral but I am convinced that I will be the first one to get it this way and I'm going through a really hellish period of anxiety waiting for the window period to pass. I had unprotected oral performed on me by an anonymous person and ejaculated in their mouth. They also rimmed me and briefly fingered me.
Can someone help with some words to ease the anxiety? This happened about 8 days ago. I tested negative yesterday with a rapid blood antibody test. I'm tempted to go for an RNA test but am afraid of a false positive result.
ughhhhhh!

You did not have a risk HIV from getting a blow job and you do not need to test .

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 are worrying needlessly .

Thank you kindly for the reply Jeff. Much appreciated. Are there any risks involved with fingering, french kissing, or being rimmed? I didn't see any blood on mouth or hands. I'm such an OCD anxious mess and my mind keeps wandering...

None of the things you mention are a risk for HIV . I'm confident that you didn't have a risk in the situations you have asked about . Its safe for you to get on with life and put this behind you .
