Some experiences..Should i be worried about infection?
« on: April 30, 2013, 05:36:16 PM »

    Dear all, i am new to this forum i have a few questions, ok i will try to be clear.

    I have had sex with 10 escorts, all protected vaginal sex, but in one of them
    the condom broke, we both could hear when it broke and we immediately
    stopped so i had my penis inside her vagina for about 5 seconds, in doggy
    style position. Should i be worried about it ?

    With 2 out of ten escorts i have received unprotected oral sex. And i have
    given to the same two girls, about 20 seconds and 5 minutes of oral sex.
    should i be worried?

    I have also one of them who for me was the worst experience ever, this
    escort was really different, dont get me wrong i have one cousin with HIV
    and i think most people are good people who made mistakes, everyone can
    have mistakes, i'm first on the list, but man you could see it in her eyes,
    she was like evil, so the first thing she did was to touch her vagina and
    then proceed to rub my balls, should i be worried ? Then we had protected
    sex but it lasted about 10 mins because i flew the site, also could she have
    put some of her vaginal fluid inside the condom? i am very stressed about it.


    I appreciate a lot your comments on this matter,


                                                        Qu.

Well, I hate that you used one of your three free posts on clarifying that a CSW looked evil.

Your risk in the broken condom incident (which is the only thing in your original post that was a risk at all) was very low. So low, in fact, that in the ten years since I started giving risk assessment on this forum, I have never had an insertive partner test positive after a condom break. And there have been literally thousands, possibly tens of thousands, of these incidents during that time.

For peace of mind, you might want to test at the six week point past your broken condom incident, then get a full STD panel including an HIV test at the three month period, as that remains the gold standard. Of course, every sexually active adult who is not in a mutually monogamous relationship should be getting two STD panels done every year regardless.

I have little doubt that you will come out of this OK.

     Dear jkinatl2,

     I hate the fact that i have to pay, i have to be honest here bro,
     you know honesty is the basis of the best friendships? : ). So
     i guess this will be my last post, and that if you see me next time
     around here, i will be posting in the I just tested poz section, which
     unfair to me, you dont have to pay anything.

     Anyways, thanks for your answer man, you are the best ! i will do as you say,
     get a test done in 6 weeks.


                                      Cheers man,


                                      Qu

Just so you know Qu , we are unpaid volunteers and have nothing to do with subscriptions . We do what we do to help in the fight against HIV infections and stigma , not for love of money .

Had you read the posting guidelines you would have known the rules , we try very hard to respect those rules and how they apply to everyone . It would be wrong for you to imply you have been treated unfair .

Dude, not only do I not see a penny of the money you paid, as I am a volunteer, but I think I paid more than you can imagine to have the "privilege " of answering questions on this forum.

This website, AIDSMEDS.COM, was built for and is almost entirely run by people with AIDS. Not people with HIV. People with AIDS. It was designed as a support and information site for people with HIV.

THIS part of the forum was created as a courtesy for those who are "worried well," who are concerned about HIV transmission and infection.

Frankly, since the inception of the "pay model" here there really hasn't been an awful lot of revenue generated by the notion. It HAS, to it's credit, cut way down on hysterical people posting dozens of times when we have already given risk assessment to the best of our ability.

You had a condom break with a sex worker. I cursory look at the last week's worth of postings (which is free btw) will show about a dozen, give or take, of the exact same scenario. Our answers to those people are the same as our answer to you. Feel free to take an afternoon and peruse those postings. Also, while you are at it, look at the top of this page where you will find detailed LESSONS on transmission.

Trust me, there isn't likely to be a unique question or situation presented here.

Had your second post been anything but unnecessary misogyny, I would have campaigned to have it removed to allow you another chance to post for free - something that the READ THIS BEFORE POSTING thread at the top of AM I INFECTED clearly outlines. Sorry you didn't read that, because judging by the timing of the two posts you could have edited your original post to allow for that information.

Sex workers use condoms not to protect YOU from them, but to protect THEM from YOU.

As HIV is significantly harder to transmit from female to male, it is in their best interest to protect their livelihood. I certainly hope you don't have to join us in JUST INFECTED.

I daresay you won't, given the situation you described.
