Recieved Oral Sex from +ve female
« on: April 15, 2014, 10:46:31 AM »
Hi

First of all I would like to thank you for the work and support you provide people.

Here's my situation....

11th March 14 I received oral sex from a female along with masturbation. Not sure if she masterbated herself before she touched my penis, the following day she told me she was positive.

2 weeks after that I started getting really bad heads and a sore throat and the glands around my kneck are swollen (still are, have been for 3 weeks)

30 days after the exposure I had a hiv rapid test and came back negative.

35 days (today) I had another hiv rapid test and that has came back negative.

1. What are my chances that turning positive?

2. The health care nurse not to have and sexual contact until I am confirmed negative after the 3 month period.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

The theoretical risk for oral transmission of HIV comes from giving blowjobs to a man with a high HIV viral load while you suffer significant wounds in your mouth . You did not have a risk from getting a BJ or masturbation . HIV is sexually transmitted from unprotected anal and vaginal sex and not from any of your concerns .

If this is your only concern in the last 3 months prior to testing negative then you are conclusively HIV negative and do not need to test again over this specific incident .

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.

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 had a hiv rapid test today, 5 weeks after exposure and that was negative. The health nurse said that I would have to have a follow up test at 3 months to confirm the negative result.

Also my other sti checks came back negative.

1. Would you say the negative today was accurate?

2. Should I avoid sex with my wife until the 3 month test?

Thanks

You never had a risk to test for in the first place so of course is negative, you are HIV negative .

Afternoon

I know you said I didn't have a risk, but the internet and health care worker said I was low risk... So there is still a chance I could of contracted it.

How accurate would my hiv rapid test and blood test (took from syringe in arm) be at 5 weeks after exposure, which both came back negative.

Is there any chance that it can turn from a negative to a positive after 5 weeks?

Thanks

You did not have a risk for HIV from getting a blow job and do not need to test again for this specific incident  but if you are uneasy I will give you the proper window periods that would apply if you had a risk ... keeping in mind that you did not .

The average time to seroconversion is 22 days. Most who are infected will test positive by 6 weeks. For various reasons a small number will take longer and that is why we follow the CDC recommendation to test at 3 months for a conclusive negative result.

You are worrying over nothing and are conclusively HIV negative if this is your only concern .
