Unprotected Oral Sex
« on: September 02, 2016, 07:18:49 AM »
Hi everyone,

I had Unprotected oral sex (giving and receiving) with a Thai sex worker who turned out to be a transgender male. I was drunk so I could not differentiate between ladyboy and female.  I used condom for neo-vaginal penetration. The oral sex lasted for 15 secs on both. I had deep kiss as well. From the day after that day, I am really worried because after sex I found blood like colour in my saliva when I spit in sink. I asked her whether that was her blood but she replied it was her lipstick. I brushed my teeth before she came to my room (around 20 mins earlier). I became more worried as I found all the symptoms of ARS gradually developing on me. On 1st week I lost my appetite and felt weak. 2nd week I had mild fever, dizziness and fatigue moreover like cold. 3rd week I found my both my armpits pain, might be swollen lymph nodes and along with that I had joint pains (knees), stiff neck, back pain and thigh pain. I had fatigue all the way and still now (5 weeks). It lasted for a week and now I have done my HIV test and waiting for the result. My doc said nothing is wrong with me but I don't think so as all the ARS symptoms was seen in the last few weeks.

Could you please help on whether those were acute symptoms of HIV or not. I will get my results next week and really worried that it will turn out positive. Please give me some advice. Thank you.

Symptoms as an indicator of HIV infection, mean little, since symptoms, if they exist at all, vary widely.

Unprotected oral sex is theoretical risk for HIV infection, but you would need to have gaping wounds and a partner with a high viral load, so it is virtually, if not actually, impossible to contract the HIV through oral sex, though other STI's/STD's can be contracted.

Deep kissing is not a risk for HIV infection.

Listen to your doctor:  there is nothing wrong with you.

Expect that your test results for HIV antibodies will be negative.

Ptrk3,

Thank you for your prompt reply. But I am still worried why did I have all those ARS symptoms and still fatigued till now. My muscles are really achy after doing PT and playing football.

Hi
Your symptoms have nothing to do with HIV and we do not discuss them.
Patrick has given you an accurate and complete assessment and there is nothing more to add. If these were your only concerns you can expect a negative result so it the mean time please do not post about you symptoms again.

Hi

I agree with Wade and Patrick.

There is no need to run test every time you give oral, just get tested the next time you are due for a regular checkup and fully expect a negative result.  Ill add that as for receiving oral it simply is not a HIV risk end of story.

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:
You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions. As you are sexually active, it is highly recommended that you get a full sexual health check-up / screening at least annually including but not limited to hiv testing.

Remember that some sexual practices which may be described as ‘safe’ in terms of HIV transmission might still pose a risk for transmission of other STI's. So please do get fully tested regularly for all STI's including HIV and more frequently if unprotected intercourse occurs. Also note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms and the only way of knowing is by testing.

Finally use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, to avoid sexually transmitted hiv infection.

Kind regards

Jim
