Miguel,

Please don't use the PM function to ask questions. Keep all your questions in your thread here in the forum.

You didn't have a risk of hiv infection, not by any stretch of the imagination. Hiv is a fragile, difficult to transmit virus that is primarily transmitted INSIDE the human body, as in unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse. You did not have intercourse and hiv will not pass through an item of clothing and remain able to infect. Like I said, it is a very fragile virus.

Along with reading through the Welcome Thread and following the lessons links found there, here's what else you need to know to avoid hiv infection:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL STIs together. To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with a sexually transmitted infection.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

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. You don't need to start having regular check ups until you become sexually active and having intercourse, so this is something for you to keep in mind for the future.

When you do become active, 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.

You don't need to test for hiv over this lapdance incident. As for the pimples or any other bumps on your penis, we cannot diagnose that for you, but we can tell you that it has nothing to do with hiv. Show them to your doctor if you are worried about them. Chances are good they are just normal bumps that appear on genitals from time to time - but you never noticed before because you weren't inspecting your penis as intently before. Only a doctor can tell you for sure. Oh, and STOP pinching them! That won't help no matter what they are.

You had no risk of hiv infection during your lapdance.

Ann

i went to the doctor and told me that he couldnt tell what it was the two small pimples and he is a specialist in stds so he told me to do a biopsy to see if it was genital warts  but i couldnt afford it but i think they may be herpes could i have aquired this virus from this incident also i wanted to know i have never had sex before do you think that if i were to penetrate the lady i would of known right i wasnt drunk i havent had any symptoms of aids or any std just those small pimples that i have
Ann do you think i should re test for herpes for the two very small pimples i have half inch under my penis head they dont look like warts but my doctor wants me to test for hpv he couldnt tell what they were

Miguel,

Yes, I would imagine that you would know if you achieved penetration. Besides, you said you were covered by your shirt. You could not have penetrated her under those circumstances.

As for those bumps on your penis, I would suggest you do what the doctor asks. By the sounds of it, it is unlikely to be herpes as herpes tends to be quite painful. Genital warts are generally painless. Whatever is going on, it has nothing to do with hiv.

You did not have a risk of hiv infection.

 Ann so you still think i shouldnt get tested.When this incident happend i only remember just  her graving my penis and massaging it on her vagina but i dont know if it really happend and know my anxiety is making me think i briefly penetrated her that she sat on it or something but idont know if it really happend i doubt it.But i remeber this that when she pulled out my penis she coverd it and when i ejaculated i came under my shirt.if i never tought in penetration could i have penetrated her without me knowing i know this sounds stupid but my anxiety is killing me.
Ann i wanted to thank you for the help you have given me and sorry for bugging you because of my stupidity.

Miguel,

You can ask the same questions over and over and over again, but the answers aren't going to change. Go read the answers you've already been given because I don't have anything new to say to your latest post.

You didn't have a risk of hiv infection during your lap dance.

Miguel,

If you penetrate ANYONE without a condom on your penis, you are putting yourself at risk of hiv infection.

However, I fail to see how you  could have possibly penetrated this woman during a lap dance while your shirt was covering your penis. This is exactly WHY she covered your penis - so this wouldn't happen. Don't you think SHE would have noticed - and said something - if you had penetrated her?

You need to stop dwelling on this non-risk lapdance and move on with your life. No kidding.

Miguel, we're going around in circles here with the circle now going back to other STDs.

You had that checked out by your doctor. If you have any further doubts about other STDs you should be discussing that with your doctor. We know from what you have reported that HIV is not an issue in relation to this incident.

Becoming sexually active is very exciting. It can also stir up a lot of anxiety and I suspect that's what is happening with you.

Just proceed sexually at a pace that is comfortable for you and always, ALWAYS use a condom if you have intercourse.

This time out I don't see any cause for further concern.

Cheers,
Andy Velez

Miguel,

Look mate, if you penetrated her, not only would YOU have known, but she would have known as well and would probably have jumped away and said something. Just rubbing up against a vagina is NOT  a risk for hiv infection.

Go and test if it makes you happy, just don't feel too surprised after you've wasted your money to get a negative result for a no risk incident.

Miguel,

If you are concerned about your penis, take it with you and show it to a doctor. We cannot possibly tell you what is going on with it. If the pimples you're worried about were not present when you had your check up, then the doctor wouldn't have been able to comment on them then.

More going around in circles here, Miguel.

You were tested for herpes. Presumably you have tested negative for it. I don't know why you would be doubting the result, but if you have further concerns about it call you doctor and discuss that.

Our focus here is primarily about HIV.

Yes Miguel, you could be at risk for other STDs even if you weren't at risk for HIV. A number of them are much easier to contract and can happen through skin to skin or mouth to mouth or mouth to skin contact.

Whereas with HIV there has to an exchange of certain body fluids such as semen, cervical secretions or blood.

From what you have described you did not have intercourse during the episode which you are concerned about which is why Ann and I don't see any risk for HIV.

As far as other STDs are concerned you need to discuss that with your doctor.

Herpes do not look like pimples.  You don't get them from a lap dance and since you've had a negative result that means you have never been infected previously and you don't have them now.

Miguel,

If you have questions about your herpes test or the pimples on your penis, you are going to have to go talk to the doctor again. We cannot tell you what sort of tests you were given or what the pimples are. Only the doctor you have been seeing can.

This is an hiv forum and I'd thank you to stay on topic - although you did not have a risk of hiv infection and as such, there is nothing more we can do for you here.

Give it a break Lopez, if you want to test then test, collect your negative results and move on. 50+ posts is a plenty for a non risk situation.

I was just answering your question. I didn't say anything about your non risk situation. You said you took a test for herpes and wanted to know if it was conclusive. I just gave you the incubation period of gential herpes.

Miguel,

This is an hiv website. If you have specific questions about other sexually transmitted infections, information is only a Google click away.

It really is unlikely that you would have become infected with anything during the lapdance you describe. While it's normal to become somewhat apprehensive when first having sexual experiences, what you are putting yourself through is beyond the scope of this forum. You might want to seriously think about going over some of your sexual anxieties with a qualified counselor before it takes over your life. Sex is a normal part of the human experience and as long as you use condoms when you (eventually) have intercourse, you will most likely remain infection free. It really is that simple.


If you've read through the Welcome thread like I asked you to do in my first reply to you, then you'll know that we give time outs to people who continually post about a no risk incident, such as yours. Please consider yourself warned. You did not have a risk of hiv infection and there is nothing more we can do for you here.

There is no approved "at home urine test" for hiv available.

You didn't  have a risk and you do not need to test. One more post and I'll have to give you a time out.

Considering you didn't have a risk to begin with, you can consider that test conclusive. You are hiv negative.

Miguel,

I have just been looking over your posts and understand your concern. It sounds to me that you have done the STD tests and everything came back negative. As far as the pimples on your penis, your doctor gave you a course of action to take, so why not get that done so you won't have that worry nagging you.

Take the stripper situation as a lesson learned and maybe next time be better prepared. Which means, carry some condoms on you the next time you go to a strip club. I hope everything works out for you....

This is my last post I'll answer to you. You didn't need to test, you didn't have a risk. Now if you can't get that through your head then seek the help of a mental health professional.

Miguel,

You really didn't have a risk. Even if you had, your nine week test would be most unlikely to change.

If you insist on continuing to post over this no-risk event, I will have to give you a time out to encourage you to seek some counseling for your hiv fears. Please read through the Welcome Thread and take note of our forum posting guidelines. I won't warn you again.

You are hiv negative and there is nothing more we can do for you here.

I just wanted to add a comment in regards to the 6 week window period in Massachusetts. I spoke with the AIDS Action hotline on the phone and they stated that ANY standard antibody test is conclusive at 6 weeks including Home Access. As joeworried stated, the only thing that would make it take longer than 6 weeks is if your immune system is compromised in some way. The bottom line is that unless your immune system is compromised (you would know if it was), you can rely on a 6 week negative from Home Access. I hope this is reassuring. Stay safe!

Miguel,

I warned you on November 28th that you would be given a time out if you persisted in using this forum to wring your hands over this no risk lap-dance.

You have ignored everything we've said to you and posted four more times since your warning. I am now giving you a four week time out during which you will not be able to post. This is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help you need with your anxiety. We can do no more for you here.

Do not create a new account to get around your time out. If you do, you will be permanently banned, no questions asked.

You have already tested negative once, been told by not one but TWO Doctors (not to mention the experts on this site) that you didnt need to get tested in the first place and you somehow think that another test will be the thing that helps put your mind at ease?

My suggestion is to talk to a mental help professional and really find out whats causing this anxiety.

Jeeez man.  How many different ways can I say it.

You are negative.  The result is accurate at the 9 week point for YOU because you didnt have a risk.  And yes you will get another negative as long as there were no other ACTUAL risks between then and now.

I suggest you seek a mental health professional to help you with your anxieties.

You are getting close to a permanent ban on this site I feel.  You have tested NEGATIVE, you have been told by 2 doctors it wasnt an issue and all the experts on this site.  What part of that dont you get?
