Am I infected? Should I do PEP?
« on: August 26, 2014, 10:40:52 AM »
Dear sirs,
I visited a asian massage parlor and after a massage, had mammary intercourse and a handjob. In the end, the masseuse made me ejaculate on her face and my penis might have touched her chin. To add to the risk, I am uncircmcised. I was only able to shower 3-4 hours after the incident.

My questions are:
1) I know the handjob wasn't a risk, but what about the mammary intercourse (not sure if she was lactating) if my glans had been pressed against her nipple and milk was transported directly from her nipple to my glans? If I had pre-cum from my urethra, there would have been fluid-exchange with milk right? since there is membrane-membrane contact rather than skin-skin contact, I am worried about milk directly getting inside my penis from her nipple. Is there a risk in this case?
2) Have you known about any cases infected this way?
3) Do I need to worry about ejaculating while touching her chin?
4) Do I need to go for PEP to be safe? It has been less than 24 hours.

Please respond. Many thanks.

You did not have a risk in any of the things you are concerned with . HIV is sexually transmitted from unprotected anal and vaginal sex and NOT from any of your fears .
Breast milk is only a danger to infants with an immature immune system and not to adults .

Only unprotected anal and vaginal sex has been shown to transmit HIV, the virus is not casually transmitted from skin to skin . You did not have a risk and do not ned PEP .

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!

Hi Jeff, Thanks for your valuable reply and time. Pardon me if I am anxious.

So even if she was lactating and there was pre-cum on my urethra when my glans was touching her nipple, there would be no risk in spite of fluid transfer? In this case its not just skin-skin right? since it membrane-membrane for nipple-urethra??

Also, there have been no history of cases this way right??

Thanks for your time. These two info will put my fears to rest.

I did read your concerns carefully and no risk means no risk . Adults can not and never have been infected from breast milk . You could not possibly have contracted HIV in any of the things you are concerned with .

Thank you.
I did not mean any disrespect by asking again. I was just concerned since I had found conflicting information on other sites particularly regarding breastmilk in contact with penis. (I know ingestion via mouth is harmless)

So contact of lactating nipple with urethra is harmless right?  I don't need to get PEP or tested right?

As Jeff already told you TWICE: You did not have a risk.
