handjob, fingering and smelling
« on: December 25, 2013, 01:00:34 PM »
Dear Experts,

I am sorry for my English

Recently I had intercourse with sex worker woman. I was in the following scenarios:
1. I fingered her with my left hand fingers on which I have tiny strips of skin just below my fingers nails (sensitive hangnails).
2. She licked my right hand finger on which I have very little eczema rash, which is healed and do not produce "water" but on time to time is producing some "water" , but is painless and do not itch. (Maybe she had some scars on her mouth)
3. She gave me a handjob, but before the handjob she touched her vagina and might had vaginal fluids on her hands (I am not circumcision, so some virus might stayed under the skin)?
4. We had vaginal intercourse using condom.
5. And then (very stupid of me) I smelled my hand which was covered with vaginal fluids. Is it possible for some HIV virus to come with the smell into my nose which is on time to time bleeding?
6. When I went to the bathroom to wash my hands (covered with vaginal fluids) the water was extremely hot, for 2 sec I was exposed to the extremely hot water. Is it possible the extremely hot water to transmit the virus to my blood and get me infected?
I have strange feeling that my groin, armpit and neck lymph nodes are swollen but I do not know. Also I have small cough. And not constant abdominal pain.
I am very anxious, I even take some medication against anxiety.
Do I HAVE TO take the test. Can I take the test 1 month after exposure
Thank you, and please help!!!

Info,

You have NOT had a risk for hiv infection.

If you feel unwell, see a doctor. It has nothing to do with hiv.

1. I fingered her with my left hand fingers on which I have tiny strips of skin just below my fingers nails (sensitive hangnails).

Fingering is NOT a risk for hiv infection. Not one person has ever been infected this way and you are not going to be the first.

2. She licked my right hand finger on which I have very little eczema rash, which is healed and do not produce "water" but on time to time is producing some "water" , but is painless and do not itch. (Maybe she had some scars on her mouth)

NO RISK. Not only is saliva NOT infectious, but it also contains over a dozen different proteins and enzymes that damage hiv and render it unable to infect. Unless you are in the habit of repeatedly punching a person in the mouth before they kiss, lick or blow you, there could not possibly be enough blood present to cause the least hiv concern.

3. She gave me a handjob, but before the handjob she touched her vagina and might had vaginal fluids on her hands (I am not circumcision, so some virus might stayed under the skin)?

Getting a handjob is NOT a risk for hiv infection. Not one person has ever been infected this way and you are not going to be the first.

Hiv is a fragile, difficult to transmit virus that is primarily transmitted INSIDE the human body, as in unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse where the virus never leaves the confines of the two bodies.

Once outside the body, small changes in temperature and pH and moisture levels all quickly damage the virus and render it unable to infect.

4. We had vaginal intercourse using condom.

NO RISK. Condoms have been proven to prevent hiv infection. There have been three long-term studies of couples where one is positive and one is negative. In the couples who used condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, but no barrier for oral activities, not one of the negative partners became infected with hiv. Not one.

5. And then (very stupid of me) I smelled my hand which was covered with vaginal fluids. Is it possible for some HIV virus to come with the smell into my nose which is on time to time bleeding?

NO RISK. You could have shoved your finger up your nose and it wouldn't have been a risk.

6. When I went to the bathroom to wash my hands (covered with vaginal fluids) the water was extremely hot, for 2 sec I was exposed to the extremely hot water. Is it possible the extremely hot water to transmit the virus to my blood and get me infected?

NO.

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 until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

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

ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED TO TEST FOR HIV SPECIFICALLY FOLLOWING ANY OF THE ACTIVITIES YOU LIST, 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!

I am sorry to bother,
I have one last Question.
Because of my high anxiety level, I went to the laboratory and made HIV Test.
ELISA anti hiv 1 / 2 At / p24 Ag       O(negative), after 5 weeks. May I consider the result as reliable, because here in Europe they say it is after 5 weeks, but the public hospital say 6 months.

Thank you very much, you helped me a lot.

info,

Your test is conclusive because you did NOT have a risk for hiv infection.

You do NOT have hiv and you do NOT need further testing at this time.
