Do I Have HIV? / Re: Worried about possible infection, PLEASE READ

Does HIV die within seconds? Minutes? I would imagine I had some of his semen enter my urethra.

Dead or alive isn't even an issue. It looses its ability to infect as the receptors breakdown outside the confines of the body.

However, it's irrelevant as your concern lacks any of the simultaneously needed conditions to aquire HIV.

Please don't post about this again, thank you

If you had gaping open holes in you head like meath mouth then I would tell you giving a blowjob is a minute HIV risk to you. So minute that it doesn't warrant testing outside the standard yearly screening.

Stop asking me questions that have already been answered. You have bleeding gums sometimes and gave a blowjob, it's been asked, read and answered already.

Move on with your life

Hi Jim,

I’ve been reading through other forums on here and just wanted to ask:

How extreme would oral health have to be for me to possibly be infected? Could I be one of those “unlucky” people? I’m sure you get this question a bajillion times but sometimes I just can’t accept it (mental paranoia literally is the worst)

As for the frotting, after I finished masterbating him it was a few seconds before I touched myself and finished myself with the same hand….

Does HIV die within seconds? Minutes? I would imagine I had some of his semen enter my urethra.

Again I’m sorry for asking essentially the same questions
 Basically if I have good or okay oral health would I absolutely have 0 risk for the blowjob I gave

Thank you!

        ojo.      Hello there!… i’m glad to read that you are starting to accept your condition, this is a very good step forward for a rapid recovery, and start learning to live with HIV… the formula to defeat HIV is discipline in taking your medication as prescribed and good attitude, you can’t change the past, but you can have a better present… please keep us posted…hugs

Estoy infectado? / Re: Riesgo? Contacto con cateter
« Last post by Jim Allen on Today at 12:35:31 am »
Por qué guardar esto en tu mochila?

Quote
aproximadamente  9 días y 5 horas desde que se usó

Estas preocupando innecesario, cero riesgo de VIH

Esto es lo que necesita saber para evitar una infección por VIH:

Use condones para el coito anal o vaginal, de manera correcta y constante, siempre, sin excepciones. Considere comenzar la PrEP como una capa adicional de prevención del VIH en el futuro.

Tenga en cuenta que algunas prácticas sexuales que pueden ser descritas como seguras en términos de VIH podrían representar un riesgo para la transmisión de otras ITS mucho más fáciles de adquirir.

Hágase la prueba regularmente para detectar el VIH y las ITS por lo menos una vez al año y realice pruebas con más frecuencia si ocurre una relación sexual sin protección

Puede encontrar más información sobre Fundamentos del VIH, PEP, TaSP y Transmisión a través de los enlaces en mi firma.

Saludos cordiales

Jim

Having a slight bout with thrush.  >:( Good news is the treatment (swish and swallow) is working very! Also started on the Bactrim. Maybe I have just accepted my situation but I am feeling much better. I had a slight ear sinus infection which seems to have magically disappeared.
