menstrual blood in urine
« on: March 25, 2009, 02:44:38 PM »
 Hello everyone and thank you so much for this forum.  Here is my story.  I am female, 25 years old and meet a guy 27 years old over a phone chat service.  We talked for a 2 weeks or so and then meet up and subsequently had sex.  He told me he was negative, but these days, you never know.  I gave him unprotected oral and he did have precum on his tip, but he did not ejaculate and it only lasted a minute or so.  He got on top of me and without my consent started rubbing his bare penis onto my clitoris, which really freaked me out because he may have had pre-cum coming out (he seemed to be a leaker).  We proceeded to have sex 3 times, all with condoms.  I was wondering if I could get some input on my risk level.  I am scared to get a test, but I know I need to in order to A. move on or B. get myself on medication and healthy.  Please any input would be great and thanks in advance.  I really feel ashamed.

Whoaaaaaaaaaaaa! Medication!!!????

You used condoms for intercourse which is exactly what you are supposed to do. They provide very effective protection.

Having his penis rub against your vaginal lips or your clitoris was not a risk. HIV is a fragile virus and not transmitted in that manner. Giving oral is only a risk theoretically. Reports of transmission in that manner never seem to quite hold up although good sense dictates not doing it when you have a bleeding wound in your mouth or poor oral care.

So nothing you did put you at risk as far as I can tell. We do recommend that anyone who's sexually active ought to regularly have a full STD panel done as other STDs are much easier to acquire than HIV.

As far as this incident is concerned if you decide to test for HIV at 13 weeks it's strictly for your peace of mind as you weren't at risk for transmission.

Always make sure any partners are wearing condoms for vaginal or anal intercourse. No exceptions. Protecting against HIV sexually is just as simple as that.

This is a hypothetical situation that I feel could have potentially happened to me and I'd like some feedback please.  I know this is farfetched and I'm overly anxious and yes, I do have OCD.
I was at work going to the bathroom.  When I pulled my pants down to pee, my panties touched the toilet.  I was wondering, what if someone peed on the seat before my panties touched and and they were on their period, subsequentiallly having amounts of blood in their urine.  Could I catch HIV through his way or is this totally impossible.  Don't be critical of my question please, I would just like to gain some insight.  I looked up menstrual blood in urine but could not find anything that says HIV can't live in this situation, only that it is not transmitted through urine, not menstrual blood mixed with urine.  Please advise.

I've merged your new thread into your original thread - where you should post all your additional thoughts or questions. It helps us to help you when you keep all your additional thoughts or questions in one thread.

If you need help finding your thread when you come here, click on the "Show own posts" link under your name in the left-hand column of any forum page.

Please also read through the Welcome Thread so you can familiarize yourself with our Forum Posting Guidelines. Thank you for your cooperation.

Getting ANY STI from a toilet seat is impossible. It's an "old wives tale" or urban myth that STIs can be transmitted from toilet seats.

Once hiv is outside the human body, it quickly becomes damaged and unable to infect. This is why hiv is primarily transmitted during UNPROTECTED anal or vaginal intercourse, where hiv goes from one person to another while actually INSIDE a body.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple.

And just so you know, we cannot help you deal with your OCD here. For that, you must see a therapist face to face.
