unprotected oral sex
« on: September 08, 2013, 11:31:59 AM »
Hi to all of you who so kindly are helping to us.I want to ask you the same question you are receiving all the time.So 33 ago i received bj from a prostitute and from day six i am having this rashes.They are flat sometimes they are red with small blister.First they started as 2 on my neck and 2 on my chest.They are non itchy and goes away in couple of day.Then a had a redness behind my ears and on left butt chick.My doc said to my he thinks it's fungal infection and second guess was risk sexual contact.I finished the treatment in last week but then they start to appeared again.Now i have them again on my butt on my finger there is red blotchy spot and on other hand is red blotchy spot whit a blister that does not looks like it's going to pop,also on my knee.My throat is slightly irritated and i feel tired.How you can say no risk with this symptoms from oral,and there is risk with this symptoms from anal for example.You say there is no one infected from receiving a blow job,but for that you have to have access to world wild database to be sure,right?And how is my mind making the rashes on my body just can't get it.No one std is giving you rash on hands and butt so what the hell is happening to me.Thanks a lot for your replays you are giving to us,but i am waiting to get tested in a 6 or 8 week just to know it for sure.Thanks again

Set, whatever is causing your various symptoms has nothing to do with HIV. You should be discussing them with your doctor to diagnose the real cause.

Getting oral sex is one of the most common of sexual activities. In the entire history of the epidemic there has never been a confirmed case of transmission to a guy in that manner. It is safe to say with certainty that you are not going to make history by becoming the first.

There's no need for HIV testing. Let it go and get on with your life. Really.

Andy is 100 % correct . You did not have a risk .

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.

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!

andy can you take a look at this statistic from a spanish clinic (i am in spain) and what are you thinking are they correct
They say there is an 0,05% of risk through ejaculating in a mouth in someone positive
and there were 2 cases of hiv from co-transmission of syphilis ( i don't had it at that time) that is all and thanks both of you

So i went today to speak with a doctor about my rashes and he said i need testing for hiv syphilis and hepatitis.I told him what you said to my about the saliva enzymes,but he replay that it is possible to have hiv although it was not the common way of transmission and there were documented cases. I don't know what to think right now?

You are not going to test positive from getting a blow job , its simply not a risk to receive oral sex and you wont be the first to get HIV from a BJ .

If you want to test then go ahead if it makes you feel better but expect a negative result .

Your doctor, like a lot of doctors, is woefully uninformed about HIV infection. There are NO documented cases of HIV transmission from getting oral sex.

Sometimes it irks me that people are so HIV-phobic that they would rather perpetuate stigma than give facts.

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."
