Deep kissing and broken condom
« on: December 09, 2021, 05:45:53 pm »
Hello!
Please I need infomation about my risk.
On Oct 16 i had sex  with a woman, but after a few moments i found that the condom broke, she told me there is no problem so we continue. The next days i start to get worried about hiv so after 15 days i call her, so we can take a rapid test together, on oct 30  we both took the rapid test and we both came out negative; she told me that she didnt have other couples for about two years.

Then i started to get some canker sores in  my mouth (thats very normal in me when i get stressed)

Then on Nov 12 i go to a stripclub and a i kissed a girl who works there, they were not so deep kisses and  I did not taste any blood, but im afraid because i got a big canker sore on that moment,can i get infected from kissing that girl with my canker sore?

Thanks for helping me!
Sorry for my bad english.

Hiya,

The kissing isn't an HIV risk.

Regarding the first encounter with a broken condom, it was a potential HIV risk.

As it's been more than 6 weeks now, you can test with a blood-drawn lab antibodies test and this result will rarely ever change and generally retesting is not needed at 3 months or you can wait and test at 3 months if using a rapid test.

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 health care provider about taking PrEP going forward as an additional layer of HIV protection.

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

15 days is too soon to test with a rapid test, ultimately the only test result that matters is your own and at the correct time.

My opinion remains the same as the testing guidelines before.

So relax, it's a non-reactive result that is unlikely to change and generally retesting isn't needed.
