small cut at penis base
« en: Junio 23, 2022, 04:59:07 am »
Hello,

Thank you so much for what you do for the community. I had a scissor cut at the base of my penis, about 5mm long and 2mm deep while trimming my pub. It was not deep (2mm maximum) but the laceration created a hole in the skin, could be because of the nature of the skin in that area where the skin is not stretched.

The day after I cut myself (18hrs later) I had protected vaginal sex with a CSW but the cut at the base of penis was not covered by the condom. The cut did not hurt and was not bleeding but certainly did enter the entrance of the vagina.

Does a 2mm deep and 5mm long scissor, not bleeding cut considered superficial?
Am I at risk for HIV if the cut went slightly inside the opening of the vagina, penis base was not covered with a condom but the rest fully covered.
Do I need testing?
Can I still safely have unprotected sex with my wife?

Thank you for your help and guidance. I am extremely anxious.

Hiya,

The cut wasn't a route for you to aquire HIV risk.

Can I still safely have unprotected sex with my wife?

Nobody here will tell you condomless sex is safe in terms of HIV.

So, I'll mention the same thing I do whenever anyone mentions being in a relationship. If you engage in condomless sex with your partner, you are obviously at risk of acquiring HIV. In relationships, condomless sex is often based on trust or past test results; however, this does not prevent HIV. Any condomless sex simply means accepting the greater risk of acquiring HIV.

Now, although what you posted about the encounter with the sex worker was not an HIV risk to you, keep in mind there is still a risk for easier acquiring STIs despite condom usage. However, I see no reason to panic or test outside of routine for those either.

Citar
Do I need testing?

No HIV testing is needed over the sexual encounter with the sex worker

Test more frequently for HIV & easier to acquire STIs if you engage in condomless sex. Otherwise, test at least yearly out of standard routine.

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 for your reassurance Jim.

Just for my peace of mind, you believe that even if the cut entered the opening of the vagina, not being covered by the condom, this is still not a risk for HIV and I do not need to go for a HIV test if this was my only exposure.

Thank you once again for what you do for the community

As you are sexually active, test yearly out of standard routine. Test more frequently for HIV & STIs if you engage in condomless sex.
