The answer to both your questions are you didn't have a risk . Salvia isn't infectious and it has property's that damage HIV and render it unable to infect , the only risk sexually for HIV is unprotected virginal and anal sex . If you use condoms consistently and correctly you will avoid HIV exposure .

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.

frottage /w scratches with hiv+, PEP

Thank you for being here.

I engaged in the following acts with an hiv+ who as a viral load of 550, while I had scratches on the head of my penis that were caused due to rubbing during the act.

1. Received oral sex
2. Frottage. During the frottage there was a poing when he sit on the tip of my penis, flexing his anus so my penis doesn't penetrate. this lasted for a few moments and there was indeed pressing between my penis and his anus, I did feel a warmer temperature, but I'm pretty sure my penis didn't pass the anus into the rectum.
3. non-receptive, protected anal sex.

I went to consult and was given PEP - comibivir and kaletra. The side effects are not pleasant, and I am very worried from what I hear about long-term damage from AZT (some report that symptoms appeared even months after PEP, researches show that this med damages cells and tissues). I really want to avoid completing the PEP if it's unnecessary. Do you think I really was at risk? What's the meaning of stopping PEP after a week? Is there any point in taking just Kaletra?

I would really like to hear another opinion. I don't consider PEP as safe.

Thank you very much!

Was PEP necessary? (not a repost!)

You should have read the welcome thread before you posted , I removed one of your post so you can ask a follow-up question if you want . Post all your thoughts and questions in this thread and do not start another one .

I read your updated concerns and it didn't change a thing , you didn't have a risk . I am surprised the doctor gave you pep for a no risk encounter but its up to you to decide if you want to continue taking it or not for a no risk situation .
