Risk Evaluation - after sex with CSW in Bangkok
« on: July 17, 2014, 02:41:06 AM »
I was in Thailand in an upscale Brothel; the CSW proceeded to give nude bath in a tub together. This was using a little liquid soap. After drying, she applied Durex lubricant and I wore a condom and over it an underwear to protect any vaginal fluids to come in contact with any possible cuts, itches, etc.
She was on top and after the act she tried getting up but slid on my thigh. Just above my knee on the thigh there was a scratch which I observed next morning. It appeared like 1-2 days light pink bloody scratch. I do not remember when this scratch occurred nor did it hurt during the act or bath. I immediately within 3 seconds wiped the area using a towel lying on bed.
 
My questions are
1. What would be risks if her vaginal fluids come in contact through tub on scratch and contact with exposed penis head? I am uncircumcised and she pulled the skin down to clean. Soap was present but proportion was less compared to Water in tub. Water in tub was warm.
2. When she slid on my thigh what would the risk be if at all the vaginal fluids come in contact with the scratch. 
3. Contagiousness of the subtype E found in this region is said to be more.

Khwabana, you had no risk.  HIV fluid in a female comes from cervical fluid, which is way up in the vagina, not from fluid that presents itself when a female gets turned on.  Even if the sex worker was HIV+, you had no risk.

When HIV hits the air, it begins to die, even in water.  HIV requires a very specific environment to continue being infectious, and a miniscule amount of vaginal fluid in water, possibly coming in contact with a scratch, is just not a risk.

If you continue to use condoms consistently, you will continue to have no risk.  However, if you are having unprotected sex with either females or males, you not only need to be tested for HIV, but have a full STI panel to make sure you do not have any other issues.  If you test negative for any STI's, please be sure to use condoms consistently, until you get into a monogamous relationship and you both test for any STI's together.

If this does not ease your mind, and you feel yourself getting more concerned, feel free to get an HIV test (and other STI testing).  But expect to test negative.

Thanks for the quick response, Betty.

Have assimilated the advice, however.
Just to clarify further, the sexual act was done on Bed after the bath.
She was on top and when finished, she got up and slid on my thigh, where the scratch may have touched the vaginal fluids. The cervical fluids may have flown down by the penis movement, which I wiped with a towel in about 2-3 seconds.

I also believe that there must be countless exposures when the fluids may have come in contacts of abrasions, cuts, scratches, skin diseases on the scrotum, penis base.   

Any update on the Subtype E difference, please.

Any update on the Subtype E difference, please.
HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.
   
HIV is transmitted by;
Unprotected penetrative anal and/or vaginal sex
Sharing works with other IV drug users

Hi Betty & Rapid rod,

I want to inform that I tested yesterday for P24 Antigen Antibody Test and it was non-reactive. I wanted to give a conclusion to the Risk Evaluation done here.

I would like to tell all users to believe in the advisers

I would also like to tell the advisers that the users are in different frame of mind and sometimes they may keep fearing out of this, so may keep asking same queries.

Thanks.

Don't even think of using the moderator button again . Go talk to your doctor if you have additional testing questions  .
