What are my risks? I'm really worried!
« on: December 30, 2012, 12:07:13 PM »
I am female and had a sexual encounter with a 22 year old male of unknown status for HIV/STD. This is the first time I've done anything like this with a complete stranger. We kissed first and then he asked me to give him oral. I was hesitant, but I continued to lick the base of his penis trying to avoid licking the head or anywhere near the opening of his penis. I didn't lick him for too long, maybe two or three times. I then put a condom on him and we proceeded to have sex. For the majority of it he had difficulty getting an erection and spent a lot of the time failing to penetrate me. He also fingered me but by this time I was already dry and lost the mood. Because of his inability to get hard, we stopped. There was no ejaculation. Then the next day he told me he had been experiencing painful urination for about a month after having unprotected sex with a female before me. I am extremely worried about the possibilities of me contracting anything from him by licking his penis. How high is my risk getting HIV/STDs from this event? I truly regret it because it is causing me so much stress and it isn't good for my pre-existing condition of multiple sclerosis. Thank you so much in advance.

LG, you are worrying needlessly about HIV. Nothing you are reporting would have put you at risk for HIV. Sexually the only confirmed risks for the sexual transmission of the virus are unprotected vaginal and anal intercourse.

Our focus here is strictly on HIV but I don't see any likelihood of any other STD problems either from what you have reported of your activities.

There is no need for HIV testing.

Thank you so much for your response Andy. Hopefully this will put me at ease until the next 3 months when I can get all my tests done again. I hate being a such a worry-wart :-[

You were advised by Andy you didn't need testing.
