please asses my situation.
« on: May 02, 2013, 10:55:56 PM »
Hello everyone, i would like to ask your opinion on this.

3 months ago, i met this guy with unknown stat. Later we hook up and did some things. There is NO anal & oral sex involved. just petting and mutual masturbation. That guy did some fingering using his mid finger but i pushed him off after few second. when he came, some of his load LANDED into my right eye which i automatically close my eye and rinsed it, but after that i got red eye cause of this for a few moment. after few minutes, he smeared some of his load that landed on my stomach to my outer lower lips. just to the outer lower lips, which i noted that i had no cut or whatsoever.
just want to ask, is there any risk from what i've wrote? do i need to take a test or just let it be history?

fyi, the last unprotected intercourse i had was 1 years ago, which i had test 3 and 6 months after that last unprotected intercourse and it came both negative. is it conclusive? i'm no drug user, iv, no transplant, just a normal guy. Thanks for your reply.

Hi Win , nothing in your post was a risk for HIV and you need not worry about the load in the eye or tasting semen on your lips because HIV is unable to infect instantly when exposed to air .

HIV exposure takes place sexually during unprotected penetrative vaginal or anal intercourse and not in the manner that you are concerned about , so you can put this behind you . Just remember to use condoms consistently and correctly and you will avoid HIV .

thank you for the reply  :). I really worried about it for a few times.

Last question, if i had my last unprotected intercourse test negative after 3 and 6 months and added that the fact that things i've done like the post i've wrote before is not a risk, can it be concluded that i'm totally neg? thank you.  :)

Yes, you are totally negative. As long as the insertive partner is always properly wearing condoms for intercourse you will be well and effectively protected against the sexual transmission of HIV. It really is just that simple.

On with your life now...
