Does u=u include blood transfer?

this is a prevention question, so ideally, not for this thread. https://forums.poz.com/index.php?board=28.0

But, yes, you can still pass on HIV if you are sharing syringes, or organ & blood donations. However, I doubt that is what you mean? Do you mean day-to-day & casual contact? So scrapes, cuts, toothbrushes etc, it's not an HIV risk and U=U is irrelevant.

My friends at work who don't know the truth apart from I cheated say I'm setting myself up for an epic fall.

I suspect they are right but it's your life.

So another update. She's moved out…
She needs my help and I have been there for and my daughter.
We live as a family but at night we go to different homes.
Been furnichar shopping, setting up tvs and ikea stuff, cooking tea for each other, making her lunch for work. Lifts to and from places.
Picking up and dropping off to and from work. Even on my days off.
We still do most things together.
Video calls and texting all day and night.
Just don't live together.
My friends at work who don't know the truth apart from I cheated say I'm setting myself up for an epic fall.
She's gone to see her family and taken my daughter.
We speak all day for hours as if we are with each other..
I've been keeping myself busy when on my own at the family home but I find myself scatty. When I start in one room and if I find an item that belongs in another I walk it to the other room and stay there and forget I was sorting the room I came from.
I think things will change once she's settled.
I texted her at the airport to have a good time with her family and that I loved them both. The reply was.
No matter what, I will always love you.
Is she saying once she gets back it will change? My Head is a mess and I don't know how to read the situation.
I know she is scared of my blood as she said she can still get it via blood and i didnt know the answer. She understands u=u but…..

Questions
Does u=u include blood transfer?
And
Since i've started taking meds my testosterone levels are super high and I have a few spots under my pecs. I know high testosterone causes spots but Is this normal?

Also, the masseuse said that she uses condoms with all customers and doesnt give anyone blowjobs

Irrelevant

my mouth was literally dry from the alcohol, also i have molar pain (gingivitis),

Makes no difference whatsoever, the activities posted here are not HIV risks to you.

Quote
Broken condoms are pretty obvious right?

Yes

Quote
Also just fyi she had spots on her vagina that looked like molloscum contagiosum, still no risk from frotting from behind right?

Nothing will make rubbing against her vagina an HIV risk to you.

Thank you so much Jim, so i don't even need to take any test right?

Already answered.

Thank you so much Jim, so i don't even need to take any test right? Also, the masseuse said that she uses condoms with all customers and doesnt give anyone blowjobs, my mouth was literally dry from the alcohol, also i have molar pain (gingivitis), so still no risk from any breast milk, cunnulingus or rimming right? Also thankfully the condom didn't break when she was violently squeezing my dick to fit inside her vagina or else we both would've been shook. Broken condoms are pretty obvious right?... Also just fyi she had spots on her vagina that looked like molloscum contagiosum, still no risk from frotting from behind right? (While standing in the shower)...Thank you again

I read your post three times.

What you posted isn't an HIV risk, relax and move on with your life.



Here's what you need to know to reduce your HIV risks:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse correctly and consistently, with no exceptions. Consider talking to your healthcare provider about PrEP as an additional layer of protection against HIV

Keep in mind that some sexual practices described as safe in terms of acquiring HIV still pose a risk for other easier-acquired STIs. So please do get tested at least yearly for STIs, including but not limited to HIV, and more frequently if condomless intercourse occurs.

Also, note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms; testing is the only way to know.

Kind regards

Jim

Do I Have HIV? / Risk Assesment, went to a Spa
« Last post by SpaGuy on May 08, 2024, 07:18:02 am »
Hello, i am a guy from India, 22y/o. I went to a Spa on the 27th april and took the extra services which were as follows: masseuse got naked and asked that i pay more for a full sex experience. Me being drunk and a virgin decided to go all in. She put a condom over my erect penis and we started to go at it. She pinched my dick very hard and inserted it into her tight vagina. Tried missionary, doggie and finally cowgirl. Now when she was on top of me, i was sucking on her nipples as her tits were so huge, i asked whether she had milk in them, in response she proceeded to squeeze one tit and a spray(  few drops) of breast milk hit my tongue. I told her it tasted sweet and asked her if she recently gave birth. She said that she had a six month old daughter and her hubby left her. Her age was 23. I then deep kissed her and continued the sex. My foreskin is very tight kinda like phimosis ( im uncircumsized) so my penis started to hurt a lot and became inflammed. I couldn't finish even after 45 minutes so i told her to stop. The condom stayed on the whole time and did not break. She took it off and then we both went into the shower where she tried to wank me with her hands making my penis hurt even more. Now my penis was visibly red and then i placed it in between her thighs from behind standing up. She squeezed her thighs but this counts as frottage i guess bcoz my penis never went inside im sure as her vagina was very tight and small, and without her help i wasnt even able to fit my penis inside while on the bed. Also i was kissing her all over her body, which included her vagina too but never poked my tongue anywhere inside. I asked few docs and all of them laughed it away and denied any PEP to me. I just want to know my risk, should i get tested or just carry on with my life?

Do I Have HIV? / Re: Unprotected Oral Sex with Canker Sore
« Last post by Jim Allen on May 07, 2024, 01:42:13 pm »
Hiya.

In short, you have a small sore and gave two guys a blowjob. Your symptoms have nothing to do with HIV from these blowjobs and you had no HIV risk from what you posted here, move on with your life.



Giving a blowjob, the mouth generally lacks a route for HIV to infect. The canker sore makes no difference and saliva also neutralises HIV by damaging the receptors needed to infect human cells. Giving a blowjob is such a minute HIV risk that it doesn't warrant testing outside of routine.

Move on with your life.

Here's what you need to know to reduce your HIV risks:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse correctly and consistently, with no exceptions. Continue to use PrEP as an additional layer of protection against HIV and get vaccinated against HPV, Hepatitis A & B.

Keep in mind that some sexual practices described as safe in terms of acquiring HIV still pose a risk for other easier-acquired STIs. So please get tested routinely, ideally every three months as a PrEP user.

Also, note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms; testing is the only way to know.

Kind regards

Jim

Do I Have HIV? / Unprotected Oral Sex with Canker Sore
« Last post by demithri on May 07, 2024, 01:11:18 pm »
What are the chances that I will acquire HIV through oral sex? I did it a lot of times with a guy. It lasted more than 10 mins but with intervals. We only did oral sex since I am aware that anal sex is a high risk activity for HIV. I'm on prep but only in an event-based dosage, 2-1-1...I've already taken prep for like 5 days already and in the 5th pill we have sex (oral)...I have canker sore a small one, in front in the lower jaw. What are the chance of me getting infected assuming there is precum.

On the next day, I have made another encounter with another guy who is HIV positive but undetectable, I still have a canker sore and on prep (my 6th pill) . Assuming he also has precummed in my mouth while I'm doing it. What are my chances for this scenario? Basically I've done it with two different guys.

Is it possible that symptoms like sore throat and fatigue come after 4 days? I'm aware that one of the reason of my sore throat is drinking a lot of cold water, and we did partying and swimming the night before I felt my sore throat. When is the right time to get tested since I'm taking prep, it's my 9th pill today. An honest assessment is appreciated.
