Semen on fresh wound
« on: January 13, 2023, 06:43:20 am »
Hello guys, thank you for this forum, you help a lot.
I am a gay man 20 years old and yesterday i had an encounter with a man from a dating app.
We had mutual masturbation and when after masturbating i remembered that i have a wound in my finger and it was next to his penis head.
The wound was fresh and I realized it because of the bleeding that happened 2 hours before the encounter. The half of my big finger in the hand was covered with blood (2 hours before). I don't know if it had blood during the encounter. The wound surely came into contact with a lot of precum and maybe with some semen.
Also he touch my urethra and my foreskin with precum in his hand (i have phimosis and balanitis - unbroken foreskin) and also he touched my anus (teasing with the hole but not fingering - i think- ).
The thing that scares me the most is the precum that got directly into my wound. The bleeding 2 hours before was quite a lot so maybe the wound was deep.
I asked him about his status and he told me that he last tested on August and had 1-2 barebacks from then. So the chances that he's positive with a high viral load are increased.
Do you think i should go for pep? I am now on 21 hours.
Thanks a lot.

Hiya,

Read your post thee times and what you posted here wasn't an HIV risk. 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

Thanks Jim i want to clarify some things.
I didn't masturbate myself, i was masturbating HIM. With my hand that had the fresh wound and the wound surely came into contact with HIS precum / semen without exposing to the air.
I didn't describe the encounter right in the previous message.

You are not adding anything new to your story, and this falls under asked and answered already. 

Anyhow, you didn't have a vacuum-tight grip on his penis, and day-to-day cuts and wounds, meaning not requiring urgent medical care, lack a route for HIV to infect. Also, two hours is fresh for you but not for HIV. Next to that, HIV is also fragile; due to this and several other barriers, it means sexually only acquired inside the confines of the body, as in never being exposed outside of the body.

Now, for wounds and fluids to be an HIV concern, well, if you both got into a knife fight and had stab wounds requiring urgent medical care, and there is blood everywhere, bleeding into each other's wounds, and you are covered in it, talk to me again, but my answer in such a scenario would be that HIV is the least of your concerns.

Move on with your life.
