Is saliva good lubricant for condom
« on: August 22, 2011, 08:57:11 AM »
Last 05 aug 2011...I had visited a CSW here in HK, and got a soapy massage...she soak me and her body with soapy water and slides her boobs, vagina etc to my body including my penis..but no penetration...then washed and dried and did a unprotected blow job....but she s not so good and finished me with a hand job. I got no open wounds or cut.

After a week, I feel a little bitl cold now and then, ,, until now...but no fever.  Whenever I stayed lazy.

After 2 weeks, I got 3 small ulcers on my mouth, but I can still eat, and these ulcers are normal to me very now and then.

Last March 2011, I got a rapid and western blot test after 90days on a vaginal condom brokerage which returned negative.

Is this just anxiety? How's my risk? Sould I go to test again?

Thanks a lot in advance

You are worrying needlessly. Nothing you are reporting of your sexual activities put you at risk for HIV transmission.

For the future you need to know that the only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. That's it. As long as you consistently use condoms for those activities you will be well protected.

There is no cause for further concern on your part about HIV at this point nor any need for testing.

If you are sexually active we do recommend that at least once a year you have a full STD panel done. Other STDs are much easier to acquire than HIV.

If you have troubling symptoms that is something to discuss with your doctor. They have nothing to do with HIV.

Thanks Andy...but I am now feeling fatigued and noticed my neck lymph node under the chins are little bit swollen.. Since I can feel them now...the rght side is a little painful when pressed.
 :'(. I am also having a little fever now.

I know that it's only an bare blow job and I used to it for almost 25 years of my mongering ...

Is there really no chance for me to catch HIV this time?

thanks again..

Are you listening to anything other than your unwarranted fears? Doesn't seem so from your reply. In the entire history of the epidemic there has never been even a single confirmed case of HIV transmission through getting a blowjob. Not one. And it is one of the most common of sexual activities.

If you are having troubling symptoms you should discuss them with your doctor. They have nothing to do with HIV. And you really need to keep your hands off of your lymph nodes. They are very sensitive and by squeezing and bothering them you can create a REAL problem.

Finally, HIV is not your problem. So let that go and get on with your life.

I have this habit of putting on my saliva on the tip of the condom before inserting it on a vagina...?

Is this a good practice?  Ive been doing it for years and never had a condom broke...

Let me know otherwise.

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 everything in one thread. It doesn't matter how long it has been since you last posted in your thread or if the subject matter is different.

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.

I also deleted a post yesterday you left in a forum where you should not have been posting. If you read the Welcome Thread before posting like you're supposed to, you will have read the following posting guideline:


With the exception of the “Am I Infected?” and “Off Topic” Forums, the AIDSmeds.com Forums are intended for people who have been diagnosed with HIV (or their loved ones/caregivers).  If you are questioning or unaware of your HIV status, please refrain from posting messages or questions in the Forums intended for HIV-positive people.

Please consider yourself warned about posting where you shouldn't be!

While saliva is better than nothing, you should be using a water-based lube.

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

ALTHOUGH YOU DO NOT NEED TO TEST OVER THE CONCERNS YOU BROUGHT TO US, anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results.

Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv.

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