Again on oral sex
« on: September 07, 2012, 08:34:27 AM »
Dear All,

A big hallo from Italy.

First of all apologize me for my very poor written english

Two weeks ago I had sex with a shemale sex-worker.

We had:

-unprotected oral (passive and active). I tasted  her precum in my mouth but I've immediately spat it off. (I had a little, no bleeding, sore in my mouth occured four hours before during supper due to a self inflicted bite )  No ejaculation at all

-protected anal sex (active and passive) - no broken condoms at the end of the intercourse.

After 10 days I started having pain in my troath and now I have a tonsillitis with plaques and slight fever . No other ARS symptoms.

I'll certainly do HIV and other STD tests after 30 and 90 days, but now I'm very scarred and anxiety is blowing my mind away.

I know you consider active oral sex with no risk but I feel my life fading away.

Thanks in advance for everything you'll reply to me.

Fortunately feelings aren't facts. And the facts as you have reported them indicate that you were NOT at risk for HIV. The most important thing is that condoms were used for intercourse. Unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse are the only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of HIV.

There is absolutely nothing about your "symptoms" which is HIV-specific. If the symptoms continue you should discuss them with your doctor.

Getting tested is strictly for your peace of mind. If you want to do it for that reason, get tested at 6 weeks instead of 30 days. A negative result at 6 weeks all but insures a conclusive negative result at 3 months when there has been a risk. You did not have a risk, but you might as well follow the most sensible procedure if you are going to bother getting tested.

In case you can't already tell, I certainly expect you to come out of this incident ok.
