Title: Cunnilingus+menstrual blood+cuts
Post by: Crazy8 on February 07, 2021, 05:13:24 am
Long time follower, first time posting.
I got really drunk and high of weed and coke.
Picked up a sex worker. I started fingering her she was very wet. At the same time we're making out really rough she bit my boton lip and drew blood. I licked  it of with my tounge and went down on her right after the cut lip.  i performed cunnilingus, my cut bottom lip,mouth and tounge were everywhere. I was about to have sex with her but inoticed i was covered in menstrual blood. Blood on my mouth, face and fingers.  She was menstruating. So no penetrative sex took place. Only cunniligus with a cut lip that drew blood at that very moment and lots of menstrual blood. I would like to know my HIV risk and if I should test for this encounter.

Hi,

Read what you posted three times. Not an HIV concern.

Relax, move on with your life, keep using condoms for any intercourse and test out of standard routine at least yearly for STI's & HIV.

Here's what you need to know to avoid HIV infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions. Consider talking to your healthcare provider about PrEP as an additional layer of HIV protection going forward

Keep in mind that some sexual practices which may be described as ‘safe’ in terms of HIV transmission might still pose a risk for transmission of other STI's, so please do get fully tested regularly and at least yearly for all STI's including but not limited to HIV and test more frequently if unprotected 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

How's that possible? Can you please elaborate on why it's not a risk?

Cunnilingus generally lacks the conditions needed, and the bit lip is not a route to acquire HIV. Asides from fluids being mixed already and exposure to air, your mouth lacks the cells to infect and, your saliva also contains dozens of proteins and enzymes that damage HIV and renders it unable to infect.

The assessment is I see no specific HIV concern over the encounter you posted about.

Relax, move on with your life, and as you are sexually active keep using condoms for any intercourse and test out of standard routine at least yearly for STI's & HIV.

P.S
I have removed the duplicate posting for you.

However, note for the cunnilingus a full assessment has been provided and, the topic is closed.

This is my last free question so i need to make it count to put my mind at ease. Please elaborate as much as you can. I would really appreciate it. Thank you.
1-I have periodontal disease. Very bad bleeding gums. Does this change anything?
2-How's an active bleeding cut on my lip not an access for hiv? Does the size of the cut matter?
3- Is it true that only unprotected vaginal and anal sex the only sexual risk of contracting hiv? So everything other then that it's not a concerned for acquiring hiv?
4- This was my only encounter outside of my marriage. Me and my wife both tested prior to having sexual relationships. Both negative.
Can i resume condom less sex with her? Without worrying about infecting her thru this last encounter that i had?
Thanks a bunch.

So condomless sex even if it's with your wife is accepting a risk of acquiring HIV. Often within relationships, condomless sex is based on trust or past test results, however, this does not prevent HIV and any condomless intercourse is accepting the greater risk of acquiring HIV.

If you are going to engage in condomless sex then consider at least testing more frequently for HIV and for easier to acquire STI's. You could also consider PrEP as a layer of HIV prevention.

No.

No, Giving a blowjob (Sucking a penis) would be a minute risk, it is so minute that we don't even recommend specifically getting tested over it.

Day to day cuts, scrapes, bites, small wounds lack direct to route to the bloodstream to result in HIV infection asides from several other barriers that prevent HIV infections through this route, hence nobody has ever acquired HIV through this route even when they are bleeding.

Now if you got stabbed by a knife with blood pissing out or something equally dramatic requiring urgent medical attention and, they the same and you both rubbed the wounds together it would be a theoretical risk at best. But this did not happen.

Finally, I had warned the topic was closed, yet you posted about it again. So let me be clear if you come back asking about these no HIV risk scenarios again it's going to result in an immediate ban from the forum for 28 days.
