sex with csw ..rash.. do i need a test?
« on: March 30, 2014, 07:52:47 PM »
hi
sorry to disturb but a situation has occured in which anxiety has taken over me.
i have never had unprotected sex with anyone other than my wife.
i am quite alert usually in these kind of situation. ive had a casual hiv test last year which was negative.
the issue is that ive had unprotected insertive fellatio a few times however every penetrative act has been fully protected and condom water tested straight after the act to check any leaks or splits.
now i came up with a slight patchy rash which is slightly raised... the large ones resemble mosquito bites. it is confined mainly to my abdomen area and a few on my arms and front pelvic region .. the majority a just like a darker discolouration of the skin and top is scaly..
now ive been to see two different doctors one said its urticaria and the other said allergy however the medixations dont seem to be working.. i also had strong fever for day and a half about 2 weeks ago but i put that down to change in the weather..
i need help plz i havent had intercourse with my wife because im afraid ill infrct her..
do i need a test??
thankyou

HIV is sexually transmitted from unprotected anal and vaginal sex ... You did not get HIV from having your dicked sucked .

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 did not have a risk and do not need to test for this specific 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.

K22,

Why would your symptoms be related to a virus for which you did NOT have a risk? Getting a blowjob, with or without a condom, is 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.

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

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts

Sorry to be a hassle again but I just read that blood in the mouth is a risk..
Would the chances still be zero if say there was blood mixed with saliva and it somehow connected with the urethra?
I'm so sorry to keep disturbing

No one has ever been infected from getting their dick sucked ... You will not be the first .

K22,

Unless you're in the habit of repeatedly punching a person in the mouth before they suck your dick, then there could not possibly be enough blood present to cause the least hiv concern.

You got a NO HIV RISK blowjob. Get over it and get on with your life.
