Estoy infectado? / Dudas contagio por masturbación
« Last post by Stroda on Today at 08:10:23 pm »
Hola buenas tardes,

hace unos días tuve una relación sexual con una sexoservidora el sexo fue vaginal con condón, después de la penetración me quité el condón y ella me masturbo con su mano, hay alguna posibilidad de contagio si ella tenía algún tipo de fluido vaginal en sus manos al masturbar mi pene?

Muchas gracias por su pronta respuesta

Ejaculating onto you and jerking off with some fluids on your hands was no HIV risk whatsoever, neither was kissing or receiving a blowjob.

As for giving a blowjob, the mouth generally lacks route for HIV to infect, and saliva also acts to neutralize HIV by damaging the receptors needed to infect human cells.

It's such a minute risk that we don't even recommend specifically testing over it. Just get tested whenever you are next normally due a routine STI & HIV check-up. If this was your only sexual encounter then relax and, move on with your life.

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 starting 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

Do I Have HIV? / Please help. Exposure and symptoms
« Last post by Veryworried43 on Today at 02:44:53 pm »

I recently had my first experience with a TS sex worker. There was no penetrative sex at all. There was some deep kissing and unprotected oral both ways for a very short period of time and genital rubbing.

My main concern comes from the fact that they ejaculated on my stomach and I could then feel it on my hand when jacking myself of just after.

About 5/6 days after I could feel a lump in my throat which has now, 10 days after the exposure, developed into what looks like tonsillitis, I have also had fever and chills and muscle aches and now I have a cold sore developing on my lip! My doctor has gave me antibiotics but I am still extremely worried I have been infected and have been depressed since

Please let me know what you think.

I can’t believe it’s painful. I hope not that much. Of course i am ready to do it. It’s tomorrow morning. I will come back with information just for the sake of discussion and for other friends around here eager to read or get information. I was wondering if by the test results they can tell me tomorrow my stage.

syphillis can usually be cured when early stage. For those who had it for a long time, RPR test may show they it is still in our body even after treatment. The aim it to cure or at least bring the title reading below 1:8 or 1:4. As long as RPR result shows a down trend, there is no further injection of penicillin needed. Dr may want to inject again every 2 years just to make sure they the reading remain low. Buttock is abit painful for few hours, but frankly from experience it is very bearable. Injection needles need to be longer type so that it reaches into muscle area.  ;D
