Anabolic Steroids and Oral Sex
« on: May 15, 2008, 11:26:01 AM »
Hi All

I was wondering if while on Anabolic Steroids it makes it easier to
catch HIV or STDS.

I do know that Anabolics lower you immune system and I have been
fighing off a mild sore throat for about 2weeks now.

Since I have had a few episodes of unprotected oral sex giving and receiving
i started to get concerned after getting a sore throat that is going on 2 weeks now

I am on sustanon 250 @ 750mg per week / Decca @ 600mg per week / Winstrol @ 50mg per day

the only symptom that seems to bothering me is this sore throat, although it does feel better today.

thanks for the help

No, steroids would not make you more vulnerable to HIV transmission. And the activities you are concerned about are not real risks for HIV transmission. In the entire epidemic no guy has ever confirmed to have been infected from getting a blowjob. It's safe to say you won't make history by becoming the first.

As for giving oral, that's more in the domain of theoretical than actual. There have been ongoing longterm studies of sero-discordant couples, both gay and straight, who had lots of unprotected oral sex mutually and only protected intercourse. Not a single sero-negative partner has been infected. So as far as giving oral, it's really up to your own choice about your comfort zone about giving.

I don't see any cause for concern nor for testing at this time.

thank you for your reply.

I have read about other STD's, and i am concerned about gonorrhea and Clamidya.
I have read that Clamidya will never effect your throat, and i have read that
gonorrhea is rare to get in your throat as well. I still have this sore throat and
that is also supposed to be rare from the oral STD's

I am coughing up a ton of phlegm in the morning and always feel like there is something
stuck in my throat.

does this sound like it could be gonorrhea or Clamidya

This is an hiv-specific website. The only way to find out what is wrong with your throat is to go and see your doctor about it. We cannot diagnose you here. By the way, gonorrhea of the throat is on the increase - but again, the ONLY way to find out what's wrong and to be treated is through a doctor.

Whatever is going on has nothing to do with hiv.
