cunnilingus with menstrual blood
« on: April 21, 2014, 08:46:46 am »
I performed cunnilingus on csw and I saw and felt blood in my mouth.Didn't stop right there and not sure if some gone down my throat. How much am i at risk. Had no cuts no canker sores. Please don't make me worrying needlessly how there is only a risk theoretically. I'm prone to drama. Is HIV concern for me or not?

You did not have a risk for HIV from performing cunnilingus . HIV is sexually transmitted from unprotected anal and vaginal sex .

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

Although you did not have a risk and do not need to test for this specific incident , anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results.

Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv. Some of the other STIs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

That's right, you did not have a risk . Cunnilingus is not a risk and your saliva also contains dozens of proteins and enzymes that damage HIV and render it unable to infect .
