To PEP or not To PEP
« on: February 21, 2021, 02:51:23 pm »
Hi. I had sex with a hot venezuelan transsexual scort 60 hours ago.
I toped her, and only with condom.
She gave me BJ and I sucked her big willy too, a lot.
After that, she came all around my face, and put her cock inside my mouth. No sores in my mouth nor bleeding.
She did not put massive loads in my mouth, but there was some semen.
Shortly after that, I removed my condom and put just the very tip of my cock in her anus and came. I was inside her for no more than 5 seconds.
I got up, cleaned my face, eyes and mouth with water and soap and took a piss.
Today I panicked, read a lot of things on internet, and went to hospital. They runned all tests (clean) and gave me PEP (post-exposure prophylaxis) for free for 28 days.
I contacted her, she sent me her tests (but they are 2,5 months old) and told me that she was tested recently, because she got breasts implants one week ago.
She seems a nice person but my doctor said that HIV tests are not always done for plastic surgeries.
I took the first shoot. Side effects of PEP are real, with some long term implications.
As a statistician, I know that the odds are all in my favor.
So here is the question: Would you keep the medication or not?

Hiya,

Being nice has nothing to do with HIV status and I'm glad to hear the Hospital tested your cleanliness levels and found them okay, seems a waste of time testing if you had showered/washed though. I also don't see how this is useful in regards to your HIV/STI status.  ::)

Even if she tested non-reactive (negative) today it is totally irrelevant to you.

Anyhow read the post and, the only risks mentioned was giving a blowjob and the brief condomless intercourse.

The blowjob, the mouth generally lacks a route for HIV to infect, even if you had gaping holes in your mouth like meth mouth saliva also acts to neutralize HIV by damaging the receptors needed to infect human cells. It's such a minute risk that we don't even recommend specifically testing over it.

As for the condomless intercourse, understand it was only brief, and as you were the insertive partner, it would be less risky than being the receiving partner as an example. However its still a risk that warrants testing over at the very least.

Now I understand you have started PEP. Taking PEP over this incident is up-to-you. PEP is highly effective when started within 72 hours, it's only 28 days, and with modern meds asides from a bit of adjusting to them at first, you should not be expecting issues.

Test at 6 weeks post finishing the PEP course with a blood-drawn HIV antibodies test to know your HIV status. A negative (non-reactive) result at that time would rarely ever change. If you wish, you can repeat this test at 3 months post finishing the PEP for a definite result, although it's generally not needed.

Here's what you need to know to avoid HIV infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions. Consider talking to your healthcare provider about PrEP in the future as an additional layer of HIV protection

Keep in mind that some sexual practices described as ‘safe’ in terms of HIV transmission might still pose a risk for transmission of other STI's, so please do get 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.

Kind regards

Jim

Thanks for your answer and your incredible work here, Jim.
Sorry about the kind of graphic description of the intercourse, but I wanted to be as precise as possible.
By nice I meant trustworthy about her HIV Status.
Before your reply I really did not care about the very very brief time that I was condomless insertive. I though that this risk was negligible.
As it is incredibly hard to find any reliable source of information about the risk of fellatio with ejaculation, I was way more worried about her semen in my mouth. I guess I was just wrong.
I think that I will keep the PEP then. March 21st it is over.

Yeah, the only real-world risk was the brief condomless intercourse, not the BJ.

You're welcome.
