Privacy Warning:  Please realize that these forums are open to all, and are fully searchable via Google and other search engines. If you are HIV positive and disclose this in our forums, then it is almost the same thing as telling the whole world (or at least the World Wide Web). If this concerns you, then do not use a username or avatar that are self-identifying in any way. We do not allow the deletion of anything you post in these forums, so think before you post.

  • All members of these forums are, by default, not considered to be licensed medical providers. If otherwise, users must clearly define themselves as such.

  • Forums members must behave at all times with respect and honesty. Posting guidelines, including time-out and banning policies, have been established by the moderators of these forums.

I've merged your threads. Keep all of your entries in this same thread. Thanks for your cooperation.

I'll just concur with Rod about your not having had a risk. If the condom had broken you would not have been in any doubt about it because it would have ended up looking like a fringed hoop on your penis. Just be sure in the future that you always use water-based lubricant.

And keep using those condoms everytime.

This time you have no cause for further concern about HIV.

Hello everyone,
I read recently an article about herpes and hiv . They stated that hiv can permeate the skin at the site of a previous herpetic outbreak , even if the lesions were healed.
I would like to ask your opinion. If this is accurate and if it counts for oral herpes as well.
Thanks again for your help.

At this point there is not enough data to support this report. Anyone who thinks they have been with someone who is HIV+ and who may also be positive for HSV-1 or 2, should get tested for all three to remove any doubts about their status.
