Do I Have HIV? / Re: HIV fear
« Last post by PARAS1551 on Today at 05:17:33 am »
What I meant was that Girl body was having no spots and any visible cuts.
I also did not engaged in any Vaginal/Anal Sex or any Oral Sex

Just rubbed her vagina and masturbated with same hand.
This is the only exposure I had.

I asked here because one of my local doctor said that if you touch vaginal fluid with hand and then immediately touch or masturbate your penis HIV Risk is there He also told me to test at the end of 3 months

Following are my exposure

went to massage parlor 4 weeks back (27 Feb).
Was wearing underwear whole time. massage girl was naked.
kissed her body (not private parts) & rubbed her vagina 2-3 times in between massage.
at the end masturbated with same hand, with which I fingered her vagina.
Did not feel any vaginal fluid (but it can be present).
I did not put my finger inside her vagina, just outer rubbing and fingering with my hand. there was NO PENETRATION and NO ORAL SEX & NO MOUTH KISSING.
after masturbation did not wash penis, masturbated inside underwear itself, washed penis after 30 min. Girl was Clean, No cuts on her body and said she is tested every 6 months (no cuts on my hand and penis foreskin either)

from last one week (4th week) having muscle ache, sore throat & neck pain (right side only)

Read your post three times, and what you posted isn't an HIV risk, no HIV exposure from this encounter with the sex worker, 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

That the women washed is irrelevant. Not sure why you would even mention it; it's not like people stop washing & bathing when living with HIV.

Also, even if you had cuts on your hands or foreskin, it would have been irrelevant, as is her (claimed) testing history.

from last one week (4th week) having muscle ache, sore throat & neck pain (right side only)

Q-1) Can I contract HIV from above exposure in any way.
Q-2) I am uncircumsized, can vaginal fluid trap inside my foreskin and cause HIV
Q-3) Can vaginal fluid enter into skin from vigorous masturbation with hand (through small tear happening on penis glans/foreskin during masturbation)
Q-4) Before masturbating, my penis had pre cum, can vaginal fluid on hand mix with pre cum and enter urethera to cause HIV
Q-5) can I move on in my life, or do I need to test for HIV
Q-6) Has anybody ever been infected from hand that has vaginal fluid touching penis though masturbation.

Also, any suggestion where i could share a gofundme page? Forums, facebook groups etc?

Have a nice weekend everyone!

"I've visited this place many times in the last 13 years and have learned that money is often the solution to most problems here. However, I'm now concerned about a potential overstay as you mention and the potential costs associated with it.

From my information if an overstay is outside of your control and you have documentation from the hospital to support it, you won't be charged. Unfortunately, in this case, I'm unsure if that will be the case since I've recovered from my illness.

I've had multiple hospital visits after i had my hiv statusd, due to food poisoning, infections, and normal things. Thankfully, my Norwegian insurance has covered all my medical expenses without issue. I must admit, though, that I haven't always disclosed my HIV status to the hospital.

Given this, I'm unsure if I should disclose my HIV status  in the future anyway after this experience..

Alternatively, I'm wondering if it's possible to negotiate a deal with an insurance company that could benefit others in this forum. There are many users here, and it could be a helpful solution for everyone. What does the admin think about that? Something that could be possible ?

You're welcome.

I hope you don't panic about HIV every time you get a common cold going forward.

Stop googling, had a headache two weeks ago, googled it, and it was a brain tumour. Thankfully it turned out to be a hangover

Hiya,

Congrats on the relationship, and I wish you both the best. Just wondering if your GF is aware you are posting here, and if so, whose idea was it to post here?

Anyhow, so receiving a handjob, blowjob, giving cunnilingus, fingering, and licking her nipples & body.

Receiving a blowjob lacks the conditions required for acquiring HIV; thus, it makes sense that after 40+ years of this pandemic in terms of BJs, 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 condition of her teeth make zero difference.

The cunnilingus also isn't an HIV risk to you; for one, the fluid a woman produces when sexually stimulated/excited comes from the Bartholin's glands; this is a lubricating fluid and does not have any more HIV present than other bodily secretions such as saliva, sweat or tears.  Saliva, sweat and tears are not infectious fluids, and your bleeding gums make no difference.

Nobody has acquired HIV through fingering, lacks a direct route needed for you to acquire HIV, and as for masturbation, frottage and licking her nipples etc., it just lacks any exposure to viable HIV. Kissing also isn't an HIV risk to you.

In short, I read your post three times, and what you posted here lacks the simultaneous conditions needed for you to acquire HIV, so you did not acquire HIV from the events posted here.

So yeah, look, I can't guarantee that someone will take their meds, but once they have a suppressed viral load (below 200 copies) for six+ months and they then continue to take their meds, they can not pass on HIV sexually, even if condomless intercourse does occur; See https://forums.poz.com/index.php?topic=71864.0

In the meantime, use condoms for any intercourse as HIV can't pass through an intact latex condom and consider talking to your healthcare provider about PrEP as an additional layer of HIV prevention.

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

Thank you Jim. I will!

And no, she doesn't know I'm here. But I know she's used this site, that's why I'm writing anonymously. As I said, I read many articles and I was really worried because the symptoms match the early symptoms of hiv. I haven't had a sore throat for a long time, so I thought that we had done something wrong and I ended up with hiv. I'm less worried now. Thank you for educating me. Wishing you the best!
