Oral Sex and symptoms scared
« on: December 26, 2013, 02:36:34 PM »
Can any one please clarify me?
I am a male. I had a unprotected oral sex(only oral sex not any other sexual activities except one lip kiss without touching saliva) performed on me by a call girl who seems to be hiv+. After 3 days from the exposure i got a skin bump in my hip and it went off in one day. After few days i got a skin bump in the same place and it went off in a day. One month later i got little sore throat and patchy white in my tongue and swollen limp node went off in a day.Then i got some rashes in my skins which went off in a day. I didn't get any fever.

I was scared about hiv, so i went for 10 test panel after 10 weeks from the time of exposure in LabCorp and got the following results

HIV index value <1.00 and HIV Abs, Qual  Non Reactive.
Chlamydia trachomatis, NAA Negative
Neisseria gonorrhoeae, NAA Negative
HSV 1 IgG, Type Spec <0.91
HSV 2 IgG, Type Spec <0.91
Hep C Virus Ab <0.1
RPR Non Reactive
Hep A Ab, IgM Negative
Hep B Core Ab, IgM Negative

Still i was scared why i got the symptoms. Do i need to go for one more test after 3 months? If i got hiv+ i might be the first person getting hiv+ due to oral sex since i have no infections like cuts, sores on my private part

Please help me in this situation. I am scared about my life.

It's no surprise here that you tested negative and whatever caused your "symptoms" has nothing to do with HIV. Receiving oral sex is one of the most common of sexual activities. In the entire history of the epidemic there has never been a confirmed case of HIV transmission to a guy in that manner. You are not going to make history by becoming the first.

Other stds are much easier to acquire so we advise anyone who is sexually active to at least annually have a full STD panel done. If your symptoms persist you should discuss them with your doctor to find out what's up.

Sexually the only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. As long as you consistently use condoms for those activities you will be effectively protected.

Thanks Andy Velez for your clarification.
I have one more clarification. Should i go for one more test after 3 months? or the results which i got in the test after 10 weeks from exposure is enough for me?

If you decide to re-test at 3 months it is strictly for your peace of mind to get the inevitable negative result. You didn't have a risk so there's no science-based reason for testing. It's up to you.

ML,

Getting a blowjob is absolutely NOT a risk for hiv infection. 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.

Before you start wondering about blood in the mouth, unless you're in the habit of repeatedly punching a person in the mouth before they blow you, there could not possibly be enough blood present to cause the slightest hiv concern.

Not one person has ever been infected through getting a blowjob and you are not going to be the first.

If you feel unwell, see a doctor to find out what is actually going on. Stop chasing a virus for which you have not been at risk.

Your symptoms could be caused by many things other than hiv. Hiv isn't the only pathogen out there, you know.

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.

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 A BLOWJOB, 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!
