HIV Prevention and Testing > Do I Have HIV?

Possible exposure

(1/2) > >>

Hello, first of all I would like to say what great forum this is and I feel lucky to have stumbled across it after weeks of googling about the risk of my actions that took place 2 weeks ago. I have read many threads on here of similar situations but I still feel the need to tell my story and get a honest opinion from explaining my risk factors. So here it goes....

I recently had a interaction with a female sex worker, the night started off drinking lots of alcohol then we went out to buy some cocaine. I took 2 lines of cocaine in the taxi then we stopped at a local bar to buy some more beer to take back to the hotel thats when I was approached by the female. We went to a nearby hotel where the following took place.

We stripped naked and washed our genitals, I then put on the condom the best I could as I was not hard and she proceeded to try and give me oral but I still wasn't hard, she then took the condom off and tried oral again but still no luck. I then started to finger her with my bare fingers to try and arous myself, i fingered her quite hard and she said it was a little sore, she did not seem wet so I removed my fingers and put them straight in my mouth to try and lubricate them before fingering her again but my mouth was I little dry. I was still not hard and she tried one more time to give me unpotected oral before we stopped everything and left.

I have read alot of posts relating to similar situation and believe I'm not at risk but one thing that worries me Is that my mouth was quite dry most likely due to cocaine, I also have bad teeth and my gums sometimes bleed when brushing so I am pretty concerned. I have had symptoms the past week and have worried myself sick since the encounter. I will list the risks I am concerned about and symptoms below:

Oral no condom
Fingered her hard then inserted fingers into my mouth
Possibly small cut on finger
Dry mouth so not much saliva
Bad teeth with a lot of fillings
Dental work 2 weeks prior
General bad oral hygiene with bleeding gums sometimes
Heavy smoker (more so after the encounter with the FSW)
High Risk Country for HIV & HBV

Symptoms after 10 days:

Burning tip of Penis
Very sore throat
Swollen neck lymph nodes
White tongue
Rash on arms

I know i have got some other std but I'm very concerned about HIV.

This is my first interaction with a prostitute and its safe to say it will be the last whatever the out come of my tests are when I get home.

I would like to say thanks in advance

Jim Allen:
Fingering and receiving a blowjob is no HIV risk to you whatsoever. You did not aquire HIV from these activities.

Move on with your life.

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

Thank you for the quick response Jim much appreciated. My main concern was how far I put my fingers I her and then put them in my mouth with not great oral hygiene but I know you will have read and taken that into consideration before responding. I will also post my full test results here once I am back in the UK and have been tested to help put others mind at rest who have similar situations.

I have 1 more question don't mind me asking do you know of any forums similar to this one that covers HBV? The ones I have found are basically non existent compared to this forum and I would like to know my risk regarding the HBV virus from my encounter.

Thanks again

Jim Allen:
No need to post results as you did not aquire HIV from these activities, that much is certain. Your silence will speak volumes.

About hepatitis there is a forum.

Thank you Jim
