Oral sex possible
« on: September 09, 2013, 05:47:26 AM »
Hi guys

Firstly I know the risks are ridiculously slim but I am really worried. I performed extensive oral sex on a woman about 2 month ago and after about 5 days I developed a cold. After 1 week I noticed a small patch on the side of my tongue that seemed to be growing this is something I have never seen on my tongue before. This patch has now grown and shrank 4 or 5 times over the last 2 month. Now I have another severe sore throat and joint pains I am aware that the pains could easily be stress and anxiety but I'm really worried.

What you think guys thanks

Steve, giving oral to a woman is a very common sexual activity. I have never known of any confirmed cases in that manner no matter what  details were thrown into the mix. That's because your saliva contains over a dozen elements and proteins which very effectively prevent the transmission of viable HIV.

Your symptoms are something for you to discuss with your doctor. There is absolutely nothing about them which is HIV specific. I don't see any need for HIV teting and this not an HIV situation. Really.

Think I'm just paranoid
« Reply #2 on: June 30, 2016, 08:25:09 PM »
Hi guys

I recently had a encounter with ts escort

During which I wore a condom for penetration the condom was a little to small but seemed OK. Also I am uncercumised.

Condom never seemed to come off

She masturbated until she cum but when she orgasamed she came in my eye. Very small amount which was washed out within a minute.

This was 12 days ago. After about 9 days I have had a headache that has lasted 4 days which I can't seem to shake this is unusual for me never really had anything like it. No other symptoms other than a bit of a bungled up nose.

Again I know I am probably just paranoid and the stress is just causing the headache. Just after reassurances more than anything. Is the headache anything to be worried about?

Thanks in advance

The protected intercourse well was protected and HIV can not transmit through an intact condom.

She masturbated until she cum but when she orgasamed she came in my eye. Very small amount which was washed out within a minute.

So she squirted right ? Because it got in you eye i am presuming that this is the case and your worried about the risk. You had none.

So even if it was a different fluid I would have said that once HIV is exposed outside the body to air it is no longer infectious.  Given that it squirting is not infectious to start you risk is none at all. See female ejaculate is technically the small amount of milky white fluid that’s expressed when climaxing however squirting, has been studied and despite myths it is simply the results of a large "flush" of clear fluid, which comes from the urethra, where urine is conveyed from the bladder. So its urine.

You have nothing to worry about it terms of HIV it is safe to move on.

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
