Need help/advice!
« en: Noviembre 02, 2017, 03:29:07 am »
Hello, recently I have protected sex and unprotected insertive oral with a csw in Singapore(condom is still intact after I took it out).. I knew that both of these have no  risk of getting hiv. I went to the doctor for my routine testing and told him about this exposure. He advices me on taking pep as receiving oral sex has a Low risk of getting hiv.
This get me worried, i gotten pep 50 hours after my exposure. Is there any chance than I may have gotten hiv? I have not feel any side effects of pep yet.

Thanks for the help and adviced in advanced
Regards
Ivan

No risk whatsoever.

Nobody has ever been infected this way and it does not meet the simply biological requirements for transmission.

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

Look all i can add is doctors get it wrong with PEP from time to time. Poorly understanding the real risks, their own bias towards sex and/or prescribing for no risk situations just to reassure the patient.   

One study found that 12 percent of prescribed PEP was to people who were not considered at risk for HIV. Go figure.

All we do is risk assessment, you simply had none from what you posted here.  Getting your penis sucked is not a HIV risk, saliva is not infectious, it also contains over a dozen elements that neutralize HIV and let me put it this way, after nearly 40 years in terms of BJ's there hasn’t been a single documented case of HIV transmission to an insertive partner (the person being "sucked") and you will not be the worlds first.

Put this incident behind you is my advice.

Thanks for the prompt reply. I can finally feel relieved after hearing from you.
I got a few more question
1) should I continue to take the pep?
2) can I continue to have unprotected sex with my partner as normal

Thanks for the help once again!

1) up to you, all I can do is tell you is you had no hiv risk from what you posted

2) I will always recommend condoms to protect yourself, anyone can be living with HIV and it effects all walks of life.

If you had unprotected intercourse it's accepting a risk of HIV transmission to you and we have plenty of members who were infected whilst in relationships.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions.

Hi, sorry to revive this post again.
Just wanna update on the following situation. I finished pep just in case and was tested negative on 2 days post pep. However I was diagnosed with hsv 1.
Does this change my risk asscessment?
Doctor told me that my negative result is very almost conclusive and I do not need further testing.

No.

Look you had no HIV risk to start with, no reason for PEP and no reason to run out and test.  Move on with your life.

The theory of STI "increasing" the odds of HIV transmission is if you have a preexisting STI causing lets say inflammation or open sores on the end of your penis it might when you do take an already known risk, lets say unprotected intercourse increase the likelihood of HIV being transmitted to you. Anyhow I hope you see my point that if  it only increase the odd if you take a known risk, it does not make a risk where there was none to start with.

Hi,

I am extremely sorry for troubling you over a potential no risk situation.
I Guess it is guilt which caused most people here to overthink on “what if”
And doctor who said unprotected oral sex is Low risk is certainly not helping.
Thank for the knowledge and comfort you have given to most ppl here. With that being said, I will still test at maybe 3months “post” exposure just for a peace of mind alone.

My last question is, will hsv make unprotected oral sex any risker?

Thanks jim! I will try to moved on from my life

No and I've already answered that, see my last posts.
It's only going to be an additional odds if you engage in something that already was a risk. So if you like giving BJ'S to men maybe otherwise all other forms of oral are safe as it lacks exposure to an infectious HIV fluid to start with.

Giving a BJ is a near negligible risk and getting one is simply no risk, none!  Next time if you speak to anyone who says oral is a risk ask them to clarify that statement. What oral and how?

I wish you well but stop posting, it's going to lead to a ban. Your feeling guilty and are a touch paranoid, not helped by a doctor who can tell the difference between a vagina and a penis. ;D

 You are not going to be making Human history by getting your penis sucked.

Jim

Hello Jim

I went for my yearly routine hiv test. It was a rapid test 3rd gen, to my surprised the first test, there is a very faint smudge One the T line. Doctor told me that it was a false positive. I requested the doctor to run another rapid test for me. The second one came back negative.
Can I trust the result for the second test? Or isit a false negative as well

So the first test was inconclusive (very faint line), and the second test was negative.

Sounds pretty negative to me.

False results of either sort do happen rarely with rapid tests, however the likelihood of receiving two in quick succession seems extremely unlikely. Couple this with your stated risk profile (ie. no risk) on this thread, and you can absolutely take the negative result as reassurance that you are indeed negative.

Suggest you move on from this now. Jim has already explained your zero risk profile, so don't keep obsessing about something that simply isn't a problem.

If your fear of HIV continues beyond this negative test result, I suggest perhaps seeking psychological counselling as it's not healthy for you to have this kind of fixation.

False reactive results are indeed common enough as the initial screening tests are oversensitive with good reason. A negative result beyond the 3 months exposure window and correctly preformed is conclusive, a reactive result however does not mean positive and simply means re-testing or follow-up testing is required.
