Probable HIV/STD risk
« on: August 27, 2011, 11:33:18 AM »
I'm from Brazil and I'm so worried
Yesterday, I drank a lot and picked up a low-profile street crossdresser
So before we started, I gave a french kiss (with no biting or sucking lips, I only "rub" our tongues). I shaved my beard hours before the encounter. We gave some few french kisses during the intercouse (6, I guess)
Then, he performed oral sex for a bit (less than half minute). My penis has a small sore (3mm maximum) around its urethral meatus. It wasn't bleeding
Then, he well lubbed his anus and I performed protected insertive anal sex
I ejaculated and then he took the condom off using a toilet paper. It was intacted
I touched his penis for a while. I not grabbed, but just touched softly. Then I touched my penis and put another condom and we started again
Then we had another intercourse (the third one). Me as insertive. But I can't cleary remember if I put the condom on. I assume that I used the condom, because I had a three-pack condom and when I became sober again, I couldn't find any condom (I've found everything that I had on my pockets before we met, except any condom)

My questions:

1 - Can I get any STD from the french kiss? I know it's very unlikely, but I shaved my beard and there was a few "microsores" on my face. Can any virus pass through this sores?
2 - Can I get any STD from the oral sex he performed me? I had a small sore on the penis tip... I've been told that I could catch HSV-2 by this contact. I'm positive to HSV-1
3 - Can I get any STD from touching his penis tip then touching my penis? I can't remember if there was precum
4 - Assuming that I had unprotected anal sex on the last intercourse, how long I have to wait to perform STD tests? Here in Brazil, it's said that we have to wait 60 days to be HIV tested. But in rare cases, we have to wait 120 days for it to be conclusive.
5 - I'm thinking about testing myself to HBV, HCV, HTLV, Syphilis and HIV on 10 weeks (almost 2 months and a week) after intercourse, then 19 weeks (almost 4 months and 2 weeks) and on 27 weeks (almost 6 months and a week) marks. If the results of ALL of these STDs turn out negative on 10 week mark, will they be conclusive?

Help me!
Thank you a lot.

Our focus here is strictly on HIV. And as far as that is concerned nothing you have reported would have put you at risk for HIV. You used a condom for intercourse and they provde very effective protection.

The only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse. So keep on using them everytime for those activities.

Other STDs are easier to acquire. If you have any symptoms you should discuss them with your doctor. We also advise that anyone who is sexually active ought to at least annually have a full STD panel done.

As far as HIV is concerned, you're good to go in relation to your latest experience.
