Insertive oral sex with HIV+
« on: December 27, 2013, 02:29:49 AM »
4 weeks ago, I received oral sex for 10 seconds from a guy who told me he was positive after the fact. he sucked my dick only for a brief amount of time, nothing else, no sex, just kissing and oral... it was a little bit dark but his teeth looked bad... I stopped immediately and left the room.
I have been scared since then because I had a small sore in my penis when that happened.

I have read all the posts and I am trying to convince myself that mine won't be an exception.
That HIV is not transmitted via oral sex.


I have had however swollen lymph nodes for the first time...flu, bleeding gums, and yes I have been scared and depressed. it was a terrible Christmas, but it was my fault.

My question to you is, no updates regarding oral sex and HIV right? I just want to convince myself that i am not infected.
You haven't heard any new case of people getting infected from a scenario like mine right?

Thanks

adrian,

Getting a blowjob is NOT a risk for hiv infection. Not one person has ever been infected with hiv this way and you aren't going to be the first.

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 ask the inevitable question 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 be enough blood present to cause any hiv concern.

Getting blown IS a risk for other, much more easily transmitted STIs, such as gonorrhea, syphilis and herpes.

If you feel unwell, see a doctor. Whatever is going on has nothing to do with hiv.

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 OVER A NO RISK 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!

Hi Ann,
This morning I got a call from the doctor telling me that I tested positive for Genital Herpes.
I got an ulcer in my penis which ended up being herpes.
Dr. told me that my risk is very very low but he is concerned about HIV and will get blood  test this monday.

I went to Walgreens and got a oraquick box (oral swap) and tested negative, this is exactly 7 weeks after exposure.

Does this mean the blood test will be negative too? I have had many symptoms: flu, ulcer, muscle and joint pain... but I read that Herpes has the same symptoms as hiv

My question to you is, assuming that I have a real risk. Testing negative at 7 weeks is a good sign right?
Oraquick is  reliable even though is an oral test right?

Thanks

I would fully expect your test to be negative as oral sex IS NOT a risk for HIV infection.  Most folks, who test positive, will do so within 22 days or so and your test was done, 7 weeks after this incident.  You did not need to test for HIV, other than your own piece of mind.

As I said, you did not have a risk and your negative result, confirms it.

I would like to use my last free post to share my experience with the rest of the readers and visitors.

I am a man -not out at all- living in Los Angeles.
Not sure why, maybe because of the diversity of this city, but for some reason my last sexual encounters have been with HIV positive guys.
Not that I planned it, it just happened, I met one of these guys at a bar, one more at the opera, a third one in a sauna, and the last one in the gym.

I don't engage in anal sex, I only enjoy oral sex, and in all of these cases, that's what I did.
I had insertive oral sex with HIV positive guys who told me there were positive after the fact.

I have to admit it, even though I have read many many times that getting my penis sucked is not a risk, my mind, all of these times, played games with my health. I've had all symptoms... this last time (January the 6th) I got the flu, rash, stiff neck,  you name it.
I got scared many times, and had to come back to this forum and read again and again all the post regarding oral sex.

Oral sex is not a risk and I am living proof that what the moderators say it is absolutely true, not that they need me to validate it, they are the experts, I am not an expert and I wasn't part of a scientific study, I am just another guy who  wanted to share that after being the insertive oral sex partner more than 4 times, I haven't been infected with HIV.
How do I know? because today I got my 4th generation results, a month after the event and they were negative.

I did get genital herpes from one of the guys 2 years ago, which sucks, but again, it confirmed again, what the moderators say:
Oral sex is not a risk for HIV but it is a risk for other STDs...the guy who passed the genital herpes only sucked my penis for 15 seconds.

Anyways, I hope my experience helps to ease the mind of people who has been under the same circumstances and that come to this forum asking questions like "what if he had blood", etc.

Thanks.

Thanks . Its true, all the studies have shown that sexually transmitted HIV comes from unprotected anal and vaginal sex. There is no need to run out and test over oral sex concerns but we do urge all sexually captive people to test for HIV at least once or more often if you are having lots of sex regardless if you think you had a risk or not, its just the responsible thing to do.

Thanks for your post, it will be reassuring to some.
