The oral sex you had was not a risk for HIV and you cant put this concern to rest .

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

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!

Hello!

I have read your post and can assure you that you have had ZERO HIV risk from the activities you described. Saliva is not infectious - as a matter of fact, it contains over a dozen identified elements that render HIV inert and incapable of infecting.

Receiving fellatio is NOT a risk for HIV

As for giving cunnilingus, you were also not at risk. The fluids you encounter when having oral sex are lubricating fluids that arise from the Bartholen Glands, located near the entrance to the vagina. These lubricating fluids are NOT infectious. They are closer to sweat and tears in composition.

INfectious fluids in a female are far deeper in the thick mucosanear the cervix. You can NOT reach that area with your tongue, only your penis.


ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED TO TEST FOR HIV OVER THIS SPECIFIC 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.

As you had NO risk, any test at any time is definitive.

Lee,

I've merged your new thread into your original thread - where you should post all your additional thoughts or questions. It helps us to help you when you keep everything in one thread. It doesn't matter how long it has been since you last posted in your thread or if the subject matter is different.

If you need help finding your thread when you come here, click on the "Show own posts" link under your name in the left-hand column of any forum page.

Please also read through the Welcome Thread so you can familiarize yourself with our Forum Posting Guidelines. Thank you for your cooperation.




As Joe indicated, fingering is NOT a risk for hiv infection and the scab on your finger doesn't change that fact. Not one person has ever been infected through fingering and you are not going to be the first.

Re-read your entire thread. You've already been told what is actually a risk - if it's not on the list, it wasn't a risk. You've also already been told what to do in order to protect yourself against hiv infection. Re-read your entire thread!!!!

Ann

■Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result,  or no-risk situation will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). If you continue to post excessively after one Time Out, you may be given a second Time Out which will last eight weeks. There is no third Time Out - it is a permanent ban. The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.

We have fully answered all your questions about your no risk incident so we have issued a warning so that you fully understand that you had no risk and we are finished with this specific risk assessment . If you ask further questions about this incident you will be given a 28 day time out . 

If you had a risk we would be begging you to get medical attention because its our goal to prevent HIV infections and possibly save a life . You need to move on and put this no risk incident aside and get on with your life . Best .
