Estoy infectado? / deslizamiento condón
« Last post by paulkina on Today at 08:44:32 am »
Saludos,
Hace unos días estuve con una prostituta. Sexo oral con protección y al de un rato, ella se puso encima y realizamos sexo vaginal con protección. Al retirarse ella, comentó que el condón se había quedado atrás, pero no puedo decir si dentro del todo o solo parcialmente. Lo retiró y siguió realizándome sexo oral sin protección por un breve espacio de tiempo. Volvió a ponerme el mismo condón y ya no hubo más que 3 o 4 penetraciones vaginales y un infructuoso intento de penetración anal. Mi duda principal es saber el grado de exposión al que me enfrenté y si debería hacerme pruebas. Estoy circuncidado y con leve psoriasis en el glande. Se conoce algún caso de infección por algo similar?

I Just Tested Poz / Recibi sexo oral de una Prostituta
« Last post by Y2D on Today at 08:35:25 am »
Hola, muy buenas Andy y Rev. Moon,soy hombre y mi historia es esta, hace 4 semanas, una prostituta con VIH Positivo, me hizo sexo oral sin preservativo por alrededor de 40 segundos, no note sangre, ni heridas en mi pene, aunque igual me masturbo mucho, no se si eso influya a las microfisuras y por alli pueda pasar el virus, no me fije si la prostituta tenia heridas en la boca (como sabran es dificil inspeccionarle la boca a alguien por dentro) ahora bien fui al medico y me receto antibioticos porque me habían pasado clamidia, mis preguntas:

1- ¿Puedo haber contraido VIH porque me realizaron sexo oral?

2- ¿Si hubo sangre y no me percarte, esta puede entrar a travez de la uretra e infectarme, o su saliva y mis microfisuras en el pene?

3- ¿ Al pasarme una clamidia o cualquier otra ets (gonorrea, sifilis etc) , pudo haberme pasado VIH al mismo tiempo, osea un coinfeccion?

4- ¿ Necesito hacerme una prueba, o sigo mi vida tranquilo sin preocupaciones?

Espero que puedas responder a cada una de mis preguntas, te mando un abrazo virtual.

Estoy infectado? / Re: Sexo oral y me hicieron una herida
« Last post by Andy Velez on Today at 07:56:09 am »
Cualquier los detalles incluyendo las heridas por tu pene recibiendo el sexo oral es sin riesgo por el VIH. 

En verdad sexualmente solamente la copula vaginal y anal sin usando los condoms son riesgos confirmados por el VIH.

No tiene que probar.  Adelante con tu vida normal.  Si tiene algun sintomas son algo a discutir con tu doctor.  El VIH no es la problema.

Am I Infected? / Re: Cum splash in eye

Relax and move on with your lif

No need to stress about this or to run out and test.
Just test whether you are due for your normal routine screening


Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions.

Keep in mind that some sexual practices which may be described as ‘safe’ in terms of HIV transmission might still pose a risk for transmission of other STI's, so please do get fully tested regularly and at least yearly for all STI's including but not limited to HIV and test more frequently if unprotected intercourse occurs

Also note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms and the only way of knowing is by testing.

More information on HIV Basics, PEP, TaSP and Transmission can be found through the links in my signature to our POZ pages, this includes information on HIV Testing

Kind regards

Jim

Am I Infected? / Re: Cum splash in eye
« Last post by Timmmparks on Today at 02:48:36 am »
Hi, I know this may sound odd, but I performed oral sex on a stranger last night and he ejaculated straight down my throat and it went into my lungs. I know because I was coughing for the next hour. I've read a previous similar post on here where it's said it's no risk because the semen will have mixed with saliva in the mouth first, but in my case, the semen went directly into the lung opening, not into my mouth first, so would have had pretty much no contact with saliva. Do you think this is any kind of risk? it just occurs to me it may be a direct way into the body.

Thanks

I read your post and your symptoms have nothing to do with HIV, go see your doctor and treat whatever is making you sick. Please do not post about symptoms  - Thank you.

Test as per the guidelines given and in the meantime focus on something else.

I've been having a very mild fever for the past week. I've never had a fever that lasted more than 3 days so this is scary for me. Temperature is usually under 99 fahrenheit (37.2222 Celsius). I also have some fatigue, and some minor upset stomache, and some headaches. I just took the oraquick saliva test today and it was negative. This is 32 days after PEP. Is this a good sign? Is there any report that PEP might delay Oraquick to detect antibodies?

Am I Infected? / Re: Anxiety and Paranoia
« Last post by CaveyUK on Yesterday at 05:06:48 pm »
Yes, the sex clinic did say that. I am assuming I am not the only person that has call them to panic about test results and/or information about HIV, and to brush me off, the counsellor said since he has worked there he has never diagnosed and heterosexual male with HIV. That’s why I reached these forums. If I didn’t get sick immediately after going to the sex clinic after hearing the HIV symptoms, if the doctor had swab me for strep throat, or if I didn’t get an allergic reaction to penicillin, I would have a better state of mind. The hypochondriac in me probably is causing my illness to be worse since I think I have high blood pressure.

Anyhow, I will be going next Tuesday to get another test done. It will be 3 weeks after my last intercourse. Hopefully that will put my mind at ease.

Thank you Jim for your help.

There are many men who contracted HIV through heterosexual sex. The clinic are clearly passing on mixed messages, both telling you that in effect heterosexual men do not get diagnosed with HIV (which is incorrect) and at the same time, describing your non-risk event as 'low risk' (which is incorrect).  They don't sound very enlightened in regards to the condition, which is probably the nicest thing I can say about them.

You simply didn't have a risk. If it makes you feel better by having a test then go ahead, but it doesn't translate into there being a risk where none actually existed, nor does it validate or invalidate what some ignorant clinic worker tells you about risk populations.
