Frottage risk
« on: July 07, 2022, 12:12:38 pm »
Hi guys.
So a guy was rubbing his penis on my anus and I am worried. Maybe there was preecum and maybe I had some cuts on my skin.
I called many helplines and most of them say it was zero risk, but some say (usually when I say it was MSM contact) that it was risky and I should get tested.
He didn't penetrate me, nor ejacuate it was just that rubbing for like a 1min or 2 and handjob.
I maybe have HIV anxiety (that is why I am a virgin) but it was never this bad.
Like 2 weeks ago i got symtoms like: sore throat(and stil like 40 days later i have sore throat), i got a rash on my hands, headache, it hurts behind my ears, i get chills...
So is there any chace that i got HIV from this?
I got HIV test after 6 weeks from that: HIV1, HIV2 ag/ab, CMIA method from vein in lab- referent value is <1,000 and i got 0,080 and it was non reactive.
So i don't know if that is conclusive and why do i still have symtoms.
Also on some helplines when i said i am male and gay and told them about this "risk" they told me that it is usally not a risk but for me it is ( i don't know what that means). And they told me that my 6 weeks test isn't conclusive and that i maybe still got HIV from this. So i got huge anxiety.

Hiya,

Frottage lacks the conditions required to acquire HIV; hence nobody has ever acquired HIV this way, and you will not be the world's first.

Move on with your life.

It means they don't believe you only engaged in frottage.

Here's what you need to know to avoid HIV infection:
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, and the only way of knowing is by testing.

Kind regards

Jim

Thank you.
But if it was possible (in theory) is my ag/ab HIV non reactive test conclusive after 6 weeks?

"if is was possible"

It's not possible and pretending it would be an HIV risk is a disservice to you and the community. I am not going to pretend what you posted was an HIV risk.

Not doing any HIV testing over this incident would already be conclusive. That's as good of an answer you are going to get.
