sex with strange girl
« on: July 26, 2013, 05:12:18 PM »
Hi everyone,
Tonight is a long night, I cant sleep and decided to post this. I really need help because I'm sickly worried about my risk.
A few hours ago I had sex with a sex worker. At first, she gave me a very rough blow job, may be some small scratch occurred on my penis after that. And then she fingered my anus with some of her saliva. We ended with a protected intercourse, condom is fine. But then she used a towel to wipe her out, and she gave it to me to clean mine.
If something I described gone wrong, am I at risk and do I need PEP? Any suggestions will be really appreciated. Thank you!

YOu used a condom for penetrative vaginal sex. THAT is the only thing you needed to do in order to protect your HIV status.

None of the other details matter in the slightest, as sharing towels, rough blow jobs, or fingering are risks for HIV.

Saliva is NOT infectious. Moreover, it contains over a dozen identified elements which inhibit HIVand render it incapable of infection.

Continue to wear a condom for penetrative vaginal and anal sex and you will be protected from HIV infection. It really IS that simple!

jkinatl2,
Thank you very much for your quick answer. I have a detail that she gave me a deep blow job, the head of my penis touched her throat. If she has ulcers in her mouth or throat, is it still no risk? I'm so scared because its a very rough and deep blow job :(

Getting a blow job isn't a risk so no worry's there . JK gave you sound advice you can rely on .

ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED HIV TESTING AT THIS TIME FOR THIS INCIDENT , 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.

Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv. Some of the other STIs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

Goodness no! That's only for people who have had unprotected anal and vaginal sex with a partner of unknown status (or an HIV positive person).

You do not need PEP over this event. Nothing you did remotely warrants it.
