Oral sex - penis cut.
« on: August 18, 2021, 01:49:17 am »
Hi Good day Everyone,

I would just really want to know my chances of catching HIV, i am very depressed right now and having anxiety attacks :(

A month ago, i met a random guy, he sucked my dick and i fingered him.. i also suck his balls but for just a minute only. Exactly after 3 weeks i got a fever and cough. Now i am too paranoid about what happened..

I remember that i have a small cut on my penis due to frequent masturbation before weve met.

I am getting anxious right now about what if he has a sore in his mouth or bleeding gums then he sucked my dick then i have a small cut on my penis then i really have a big chance of contracting the virus.

I really would like to know my risk :( i am very depressed.....

I WANT TO get tested but i am really in fear if turns positive .

Hiya,

Read your post three times.

Receiving a blowjob lacks the conditions required for acquiring HIV. Thus it makes sense that after nearly 40 years of this pandemic 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. The same can be said for fingering and sucking his balls.

So in short, you did not acquire HIV from what you posted here.

Look although what you posted here was no HIV risk, as you are sexually active it's recommended to test at least yearly for HIV and far easier to acquire STI's out of routine.

Testing routinely and knowing your HIV status means if it is positive you can start treatment to suppress the virus and live a long healthy life, also, by starting and staying on treatment you will reduce the levels of HIV in your body to a point that you can't pass it on sexually to others.

Not knowing means if you are positive the virus will cause damage to you and with time could cause permanent damage or lead to death.

The same can be said for other STI's and many of them can even be cured, so don't fear testing and knowing your HIV & STI. Instead, test routinely, know your status and perhaps testing routinely will also give you peace of mind and that's priceless.

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 health care provider about taking PrEP going forward as an additional layer of HIV protection.

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.

Kind regards

Jim

P.S

Regarding the cough, you should contact your healthcare provider for advice and treatment, keeping whatever covid restrictions and testing regulations are in effect where you live.

Hi Jim,

Thank you for the prompt response, you actually lessen my anxiety.

I dont want to really read and search any google sites about it as I am becoming more paranoid...

I was just really concerned on the small cut of my penis when he sucked me.

By the way I am not sexually active, never fucked a guy or have sucked anyone's penis.

You and youre team is doing great.

More powers!

You're welcome.

Just relax, use condoms for any future intercourse, and test out of routine yearly for HIV and far easier to acquire STI's regardless of the level of sexual activity.

Hi Jim  ,

My anxiety is really driving me crazy. Sorry about this JIM, but i am really worried about receiving oral sex with penis cut and i know that small wound was exposed while he suck me.

I am really worried what if he has a bleeding mouth and touches my small wound :( .

Sorry about the drama , please bear with me :( ...

Should i got tested at 3 months ??? How sure are you that HIV is not transmitted that way.

This is simple, you did not acquire HIV from receiving a blowjob.

Move on with your life, use condoms for any intercourse, and test out of routine yearly for HIV and far easier to acquire STI's.
