Risk semen penis contact
« on: December 11, 2017, 09:08:35 am »
HI, I am living in hell. I do not know what to do during my window period, since nov 16.

I went to a peep show (watch a girl behind de glass) I try not to touch anything with my hand (just the entrance door and the coins I spent), I do not even touch my penis in there. But inmediately, all within 3 minutes, I went to a public bath and masturbate (ugly, I know. Wont happend again). I Washed my hands before, but I am too scared becouse a bag I was holding in my hand, and terrified becouse it was in touch with the walls and doors in the peep show and then I retouched it after washing hands and before touching myself.

I am at risk for this? It´s killing me, reviving each second all day long. I know there is guilt involve, but I was so carefull that I am  too scared now becouse of that bag.

HELP ME UNDERSTAND PLEASE!

Hi,

The virus is very fragile and does not survive once outside the confines of the body.
Not on any surface period, and masturbation is not risk, you can't infect yourself.

The virus is sexually transmitted though unprotected anal and vaginal intercourse .
You had no risk whatsoever, please have a look at this link on how the virus is and is not transmitted.

Best,

Wade

Thanks Wade, I read the link, and many others. Is just that when I masturbate I touch the tip of my penis, and there might be other guys semen on it. And as everywhere I read that HIV lives just minutes outside the body, I am scared that it could still be active when I rubbed it against my penis.

I am aware that is difficult for the semen to go from other guy to the wall, to the bag, to my hand, to my penis. But 1 chance in 1.000.000 is killing me. I want to move on.

Your chances of contracting the virus this way is zero, no ifs, ands, or buts.

It is safe to move on, educate yourself and please don't post about this again.

To add to Wade's assessment,

Kid stop reading shit online, your an adult. To be crude I could have cum over your penis directly myself and it would still not be a risk.

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
