Fingerings During Period & Bruised Penis Rubbing Vagina
« on: October 21, 2012, 11:59:40 AM »
Hello Everyone,

I am very scared and was wondering if I could get some perspective from people.

8 weeks, ago I met a girl at a bar and ended up going back to her place.  I did the following: Fingered her(she was on her period), deep kissing (tongue on tongue), rubbed my penis against her Vagina.  My pants were still on but I unzipped the fly. After I got backroom my hotel I masturbated using two fingers rubbing my foreskin.  After I finished I noticed that my penis had a bruise on it..not sure if she happened during the penis/Vagina rubbing or when I masturbated!   

I have been suffering from what I believe is anxiety and stress.  I took a 3rd Generation Elisa test at 6 weeks and it came back negative.  However, this past week (week 7) I started to come down with a strange headache....almost like I very light flu.  I'm not eating well, I'm not sleeping well and I'm worried that My 6 week test didn't matter because I am experiencing these symptoms now, and maybe my test was a false negative due to the fact that I drink2 energy drinks a day for the past 6 years - maybe my immune system is suppressed? 

1. What do you think my risk is?

2. I know the 12 week test is best, but can someone tell me how likely the test result changes from 6-12 weeks?

3. If I'm only experiencing this flu like headache now does that mean ars has just started and thus my first test was a false negative?

Please help!

1. You did not have a risk.

Fingering is not a risk and it doesn't matter that she had her period.

Rubbing genitals together without penetration is called frottage and frottage is not a risk for hiv infection; again it doesn't matter if she had her period.

Masturbating yourself is also not a risk for hiv infection, regardless of what is on your fingers.

2. Your six week result is not going to change because you did not have a risk. You do NOT have hiv and you do not need further testing at this time.

3. NO. ARS, if it happens at all, happens in the first two to three weeks. NOT six weeks later. It's cold and flu season, you know.

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 FURTHER TESTING OVER THIS NO RISK INCIDENT, 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. Some of the other STIs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test.

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

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts
