HIV Prevention and Testing > Am I Infected?

Hemorrhoid Question

(1/3) > >>

I had oral sex with a guy recently; oral sex, little to no risk...I understand that.  But he tried unsuccessfully to insert his penis into me (anal sex), but I pushed him away in 1 second.  There was certainly no penetration, but the tip of his penis might have touched the outside of my anus for that 1 second.  I had hemorroids at the time, so there was some blood there.

Was there any risk to me?

Jeff G:
You didn't have a risk from a penis pushing against your rectum . These are the risk factors for HIV ....

Sharing IV drug needles immediately after use.
Unprotected anal and vaginal sex.
Mother to child during or shortly after birth
Very specific healthcare situations.

No penetration means no risk for HIV . 

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!

Thanks, Jeff.  2 comments:

1.  he fingered me.  since I had hemorriods, is there a risk from that if he had pre cum on his hands?

2.  I have a sore throat now, and earache.  does that change anything.

Thanks so much Jeff!

Jeff G:
Fingering is not a risk for HIV , only the things I listed in August are a risk for HIV and you did not have a risk .

If you are unwell see your doctor , its not HIV that causing it .   


Thanks again.  May I resume unprotected vaginal sex with my girlfriend without getting tested?
