just wondering what somebody else thinks about this
« on: May 25, 2009, 10:48:32 PM »
hi im an 18 year old boy and i had sex today with another 18 year old boy. this wasnt my first time to do that. i havent done it in a while but obviously i forgot the fears and worries that come after sex. he said it was his second time which i suppose i could trust him on but you just never know. anyways back to the point....i received anal and gave oral sex. (or whatever you say)   Im just scared i got something from it. The anal sex was protected but when he pulled out there was blood on the condom or at least thats what i noticed after i was cleaning up. then i noticed there was blood when i used the bathroom 5 min later. is that normal? i'm scared i was infected. but it sounds like protection prevents it. I feel worried...but i dont want to worry. does this sound like a risky situation?  i will go get tested but i just need something to calm the fears. im almost certain i dont have anything from this encounter as the anal was protected and i only gave oral. thanks and this forum is a big help.

No, you weren't at risk, you had protected sex and that's good, please keep using condoms and look after your health, it's the only way to stay safe.

Please read our welcome thread and follow the lessons on how HIV is and is not transmitted.

You do not need to test over this incident, but if it makes you feel better then go for it, just know it's not necessary, and please remember anyone who is sexually active should be having a full STD check up at least once a year, and also remember by agreeing to have unprotected sex you run the risk of a possible infection from all STD's.

Use condoms for anal/vaginal sex at all times...NO EXCEPTIONS.

Never knock on deaths door..ring the bell and run..he really hates that.
