I'm worried...
« on: November 09, 2008, 07:07:18 PM »
One month ago I recieved an oral sex from a woman, unprotected. And a vaginal sex, protected.
I'm worried about this oral sex. I read all the topics but i'm still worried because i've got some herpes in my mouth and some red stains on my tongue. I know these may have been caused by the stress. Herpes are no longer in my mouth by red stains are still remained. They were seemed to passed two days ago but yesterday when i looked, they were all back.

and it may seem weird to you all but i'm concerned about one more thing. with a mistake i touched to a usen condom with my foot. just a second contact. is this a risky situation? i had no bruise or scarfs in my foot when that thing happened. (at the same night, one month ago)

i'm really obssesive with all those things and i want to here from you.

You were never at risk of contracting HIV from receiving a blowjob. Take the time to read the lessons on Transmission. You can find the link in the "Welcome" thread.

Thanks. I read much of these transmission and other topics. But those herpes and stains make me obsessive about this thing.

Rod was simple asking if you have actually tested for herpes or whether you are just calling a sore you have "herpes."

In any case it's irrelevant as far as any risk for HIV is concerned from having gotten a blowjob. In the entire history of the epidemic no guy has ever been infected that. way. So it's safe to say that you aren't going to make history by becoming the first.

It's good to read that you used a condom for intercourse. Do that everytime and you'll be well protected as far as HIV is concerned.

This time out you have no cause for further concern about HIV.

We do recommend that anyone who's sexually active ought to regularly have a full STD panel done since other STDs are much easier to acquire than HIV. At least annually is a good idea.

Cheers.

Yes, thanks again 'cause of feel better but still I've got red points on my tongue. It'll be more than 3 weeks. It may be a sympton of a different sexual disease caused by this oral sex?

Hi again,

I really didn't want to disturb anyone here but i had to now. I still have got those red points in spite of i've used some medication on them.

But they do not hurt. Just red point all over the surface of my tongue. And i realized, they started to be darker now, like black. Really i don't know how to say but that scares me a lot, and i looked on the internet to tongues who's got aids, looking like my tongue and that made me more scared. God, I'm an obsessive compulsive anyway, and this concern thing just suited me like hell.

Please, could anyone give me some relief here?

I have AIDS and I can tell you I don't have black spots on my tongue nor do I have thrush, nor do I have reds spots on my tongue. If you have a concern see your doctor. You aren't going to find the answers on the Internet.

As Rod has told you, we can't diagnose anything here. What we can tell you with certainty is the symptoms you are stressing over have nothing to do with HIV. And believe me, if you keep scouring the net you will find an endless number of things to worry about. All to no good purpose.

Go see your doctor if you have symptoms that are bothering you. Period.
