Just a slight concern
« en: Febrero 07, 2021, 03:57:00 pm »
So I’m fairly sure I’m alright here but just wanted a second opinion.

Had a sexual encounter a little while back, in which I practiced safe sex. I was the recipient of a condomless blowjob (i know, no risk in receiving head) and was the insertive partner in anal sex (top) with a condom. Intact, fresh out of the box condom which I put on correctly and we used lubricant for the sex.

So why am I here? Lol

Well, during the oral I ended up getting a superficial abrasion/ scratch a little more than halfway down my shaft. So closer to the base than the tip. Presumably from teeth. Not deep, very superficial but I could tell a few layers of skin was missing. I wasn’t bleeding, but you get my drift I think. It was red and an obvious abrasion.

I’m well aware that hiv can not pass through the latex condom. But in some instances I’ve had condoms kind of roll back up a little bit. I actually remember specifically checking for this during sex and the condom was exactly where it was supposed to be and intact. I cleaned myself up with a sanitary wipe after.

I guess the only reason I’m here is I’m wondering that IF that abrasion was uncovered and had been exposed...is this something I should test for? I’ve tried to find posts with similar situations and the closest I could find was people with cuts on their finger that were concerned about fingering people. To which they were told “this is not an exposure risk” or something of that nature.

Is it the same answer in this case? I just did my routine tests in November and don’t plan on going until my next routine test unless you think this warrants testing.

I’m very adamant about safe sex and if it wasn’t for that stupid little scratch I wouldn’t have any concern here.

Thanks a lot for your time.

Look I read what you posted three times.

Nothing you mentioned warrants testing outside of standard routine. The toothy bj did not create a route for HIV during intercourse.

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

So, now that I wrote down the scenario and I’ve read my own words I’m realizing how difficult it would have been to have a condom roll back up while I was inserting my penis. That means the end of the condom would have had to entered the person on the receiving end and would have likely been pulled off or nearly off. So this kind of seems like a silly question now.

Silly, not at all. I get asked all the time about shaving nicks, shaving rashes, cuts, wounds, pimples, spots, scrapes on or around penises and intercourse. So we have had all kinds of scenarios posted.

Anyhow, even if the condom had ridden up somewhat the scraped skin mentioned would not be a route for you to acquire HIV.

Thanks Jim, I appreciate you.

You're welcome.
