Therotical Risk after oral exposure
« on: November 16, 2006, 05:08:14 AM »
Hi,

at first i like to say, that i am following this site more than 4 weeks and i found here very needfull informations, hope and knowledge and i like to thank you for that, especially thanks to Ann and Andy, you are doing a great job.

Objective as follows:

9 weeks after unprotected sex i tested negative with the Standard Elisa Test. Meanwhile i must tell you, that i am very activity. During this 9 weeks i got also a unprotected cunnilingus to a another women. This happened 4,5 after my unprotected sex with the first woman.

Yesterday i received the information, that the lady, with which i had unprotected sex is hiv negative.

I know all the informations about Hiv Transmission throug oral sex to vagina without protection. But it is confusing me so much, that i am not able to think rational about this topic.

How much is the Risk to become infected through unprotected oral sex to a woman (not more than 2 min.)? As far as Test Result after 4,5 weeks is concerned, i know, that this is not conclusive.

Many thanks for your help in advance.

Sil,

You need to test at the three month point after the unprotected intercourse. You don't need to test for the cunnilingus. Going down on a woman is not a risk for hiv infection.

Get that three month confirmation. I do not expect your nine week negative result to change.

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 STIs together. To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with a sexually transmitted infection.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

Thank you so much Ann for your kind answer and patience.

Ann, just one more question. Does it matter, if the women, with which i had unprotected vaginal intercourse is tested negative also after 10 weeks from this intercourse?

Furthermore, which Elisa Tests are used in Europe and Turkey?

Many many thanks in advance for your patience and informations.

with warmth,

Silasss

If she tested negative at 10 weeks, you can rest assured you didn't get exposed to HIV from her.

Sil, someone else's HIV test result is never the way to know about your own status. The only sure and certain way to know your own HIV status is to get tested at the appropriate time.

Here in the US the CDC recommends doing that at 13 weeks after the most recent risky incident, which in your case would be 13 weeks after the unprotected intercourse. In some countries 12 weeks is considered sufficient, and if you get a negative at that point I would consider that reliable as well.

Just make sure when you test that a standard approved test is being used. That should be available easily through your doctor, a reputable lab or your local board of health.

Cheers,
Andy Velez

Thanks RapidRod for your fast response,

just want to ask one more question about the ELISA-TEST.
Are these test worldwide standard or does it depends from country to country, from clinic to clinic?

I still have no information about that, also by asking the hospital, they did not give me an answer, which i found not responsible. Anyhow.

Many thanks in advance.

with warmth,

Silasss

Hi andy,

thank you also for your information. I got tested nine week after unprotected vaginal intercourse hiv negative with Elisa.

 And this lady, with which i had intercourse was also tested 10 week after that to hiv negative after my inquiry.
That is fine from her, I got it also written, it stands: p24 Antigen=negativ.

Sil, I've already told you that as far as I am concerned your lady friend's negative result is irrelevant. For example, she might have had unprotected sex the day before her test. That would mean she could test negative since it would have been too early to test positive.

It's YOUR test which matters, and as I have also indicated previously testing at 12-13 weeks is the recommended standard. I do expect you will continue to test negative.

I don't see any reason to doubt that a hospital you are using would use anything other than a standard, reliable test.

Stop quibbling over details. Get your own test done at the appropriate time and get past this concern.

There is a point when "research" turns into obsession.

It's a good thing to recognize when that has happened and to call a halt on the so-called research.

Given what you have reported thus far including your test result, I expect you to continue to test negative. So give it a rest until then and stay productively busy with other matters. That's a much healthier way to spend your time.
