I forward my thanks and please help me i've been feeling so bad because I have a girl friend which i've been avoiding sex for now till I got my std results, and help me wich mwtjod can I use for hvi test at 24 days and if I was on a risk.

You didn't have a risk for HIV getting a blow job . The risk for oral transmission of HIV comes from giving a blow job and then its still under extraordinary circumstances for it to happen then .

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 STDs 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!

For future reference ... the testing window period is 6 weeks past any possible exposure and again at 3 months to confirm the results . I do not want to give you the impression that you must test over this specific incident .

Nic,

Getting a blowjob isn't a risk for hiv - although you can get things like syphilis, gonorrhea and herpes from getting blown.


I have a girl friend which i've been avoiding sex for now till I got my std results


You and your girlfriend shouldn't be having unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse unless you've BOTH tested for all STIs together and you are strictly monogamous. It never ceases to amaze me how people never stop and consider that their loved one may have an undiagnosed STI (including but not limited to hiv) and only worry when they get a "bit of strange".

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.

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.

I am still waiting for my std's results to come out, but my doctor told me he would call me right away if somwthing wrong, they took the samples at 8 in the morning so most of the results would come out by that time, my concerned is if the girl giving me the blow job has like clamydia or gonorrhea would that blow job still at no risk, should I leave thos behind and keep my life normal. Please advice. And my doctor said he have not seen or heard of some one getting infected by getting blow jobs, but I did not asking if the person giving it has like clamydia or gonorrhea. I have and appoitment for complete physic at 11 weeks after this I checked every year. Do you think also 11 weeks would be a good to checke for hiv. Please answer me thos concerned. Jeff and Ann you have been a good support for me now, should I stop worrying about not risk still?

Doesn't matter what she had, HIV is not transmitted by oral sex.
