I need your opinion...
« on: June 05, 2024, 07:22:21 pm »
Hello, I'm with this girl for 1 year and 4 months now, on beggining of our relationship we had naked genital rubbing (without penetration), it was really wet cuz of her vaginal fluids, and after few days we did it few times more until I started overthinking about pregnancy so I started buying condoms. But from beggining of relationship I receved for sure more than 100 blowjobs from her, and I licked her vagina so many times. We never did anal or vaginal penetrative sex. I did fingered her vagina and idk. if I had any cuts on finger... But I asked her for her HIV status becouse she had boyfriend before me which had so many girls before my girlfriend and my gf doesn't know his HIV status but she told me that they did execly same things as we did (rubbing, oral)...  So now we don't know if we should get tested or there was zero risk for both of us. I'm afraid, what if the doctor doesn't change the needle that was used to test someone who is positive before me? I'm from Serbia (Europe) and there is so rare HIV, from 6 million people living in country, there is about 5000 people living with HIV.

Hiya,

I read your post three times.

Fingering, rubbing against each other, receiving blowjobs and cunnilingus are not HIV risks, and neither is getting a blood draw for testing.

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 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 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

Thank you for answer.

I've read lots of answers to other questions and I saw that vaginal fluid from Barholin glans has no infective amount of hiv in it, so there is for sure 0 risk to get hiv from licking vagina (for more reasons than that) and rubbing genital. But there is enough HIV in cervixal fluids which is deep inside vagina, I'm wondering is it possible that cervixal fluids goes outside of vagina while frottage? I mean even then there is no risk for HIV infection becouse HIV is fragile. But my friend who is reguraly getting tested asked doctor for how long HIV is infective outside body and he replied that nobody knows exacly it could be till semen or vaginal fluids dry like few minutes. I belive more you than him, not only cuz its easier to calm my mind... hahaah

Already answered.

The activities posted here are not an HIV risk to you. They lack the biological and environmental conditions needed for you to acquire HIV. End of story!

Move on with your life, use condoms for any intercourse, get an STI screening yearly and get vaccinated against HPV & Hepatitis A & B.

Please don't post about this again and I'm not interested in what your friend "claims" their "doctor" said.

I've personally met doctors that still think shaking hands and eating food is an HIV risk and I'm not surprised as they aren't specialists so why would they know or be up-to-date on something that relatively effects so few in the western world.

Anyhow, I'm not interested in hearing about or discussing what your friend may or may not have been told by someone who may or may not be a doctor
