gave / received oral sex
« on: October 21, 2013, 10:31:57 AM »
Hello. Good morning. Last week I have unprotected oral sex with a sex worker transexual.
I gave about 30 seconds of oral to her and received about 5 minutes from her.
No ejaculations (both). Don't remember about her precum or open sores in my mouth.
I was at the dentist a week before the meeting to close some open teeth.

I'm avoiding sex with my regular partner since then.

Am I at risk? Should I test?

I really appreciate your help experts. Be in peace...  :)

PS.: Sorry for my english, not my native language.

There have been no fewer than three separate serodiscordant couples studies (where one person is HIV positive, the other negative.) These couples were tracked for three. five and ten years. The couples used condoms for penetrative vaginal and anal sex, but NO BARRIER at all for oral sex. Any kind of oral sex.

These studies yielded NO infections.

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! .

Another Situation Here !!!
« Reply #5 on: August 06, 2014, 06:56:44 AM »
Hello, good morning. I have another situation here, that I can't tell if it was a risk or not. I had an encounter with a HIV positive girl, she told me. We didn't have have sex because she was menstruating, just mutual masturbation (with a condom in my hands because mestruation). Until here all right !!!

The situation is that when she took off her panties, there was some blood on it. She washed her panties in the bathroom faucet (only water without soap) and then we started masturbation. When we finished, we were showering. In the bath she began to masturbate me again. She fingered my anus, and then immediately began to insert her "washed" panties in my anus, she inserted her panties almost completely in me. When she removed the panties from my anus, I realized that the panties still had a barely visible bloodstain, from her menstruation.

It happened about 20/30 minutes after the girl had washed her panties, and from what I've been reading the virus would be dead this time, but a colleague told me that it is a risk, because the tap water could have rehydrated the virus in her underwear. Is this possible? The chlorine in the water should not kill the virus?

Should I test for this episode?

Thank you!

Morga, HIV is a very fragile virus. It is not transmitable in a viable form in the manner you are concerned about. Sexually the only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. That's it.

You are worrying needlessly. There's no need for testing or for further concern on your part.
