was i at risk?? i am a bit worried
« on: November 16, 2013, 07:45:54 PM »
i have a couple of questions and i have been worrying about this ever since, a month ago i had an encounter with a man after a couple of drinks at the bar, he performed unprotected oral sex on me, fingered and licked my anus and i think he hay have rubbed his penis against my anus, he claimed to be hiv neg but i don't believe him, i mean people lie about that all the time right? at 4 weeks i had a test where they drew blood from my arm and it came back negative, from this exposure, was i at risk for hiv? and how conclusive is a blood test done at 4 weeks after this risk? and finally, would you guys recommend going back to test again at 3 months? appreciate the help :)

Clover, you are worrying needlessly. Getting oral is one of the most common of sexual activities. There's no risk no matter what the details. It's safe to say you will not make history by becoming the first guy to get infected that way. Rubbing? Also not a risk.

There's no need for testing. Get on with your life and just remember to always use a condom for anal (and vaginal) intercourse. Those are the only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV.

forgot to add that i am a man as well, but i guess that doesn't change anything right? i freaked out a little because the lady that did the test on me said that it was still a risk, so a 4 week neg test for this type of "risk" if you can call it that, conclusive??

The "lady" was wrong. Period. You did not have any risk and there is no need for further testing. Really.
