Fingering / Kiss Bite / symptoms
« on: August 04, 2013, 07:06:32 AM »
Dear Andy: Thank you for your time and help you in this noble cause ... I hope that one day this terrible disease is eradicated from the world or be in the near future a cure ...

My story: In January 2012 I had on 3 different occasions sex with a friend ... I am a heterosexual man and .. it where  vaginal intercourse and  use condoms in the 3 occasions and I'm sure did not break, neither came out of the penis  ... in one of those occasions before my appointment I shave my penis area near for esthetics and I might have made  a cut with the razor ... Did I have some risk?? also the first day we went deep kissed me and she bite me on my  lip it might be  bleeding .Did  I have some risk??? also i had finger her vagina and have might have a little cut , cause i went fishing hours before.. after that I started to fall in terrible stress, i have some rashes, which might be derived from mosquitoes in the Mexican Pacific are attacking you even right through the clothes ... by the way are called je jen .. or Rashes might be of caused of the same stress...  I never had a fever ... Neither diarreaha by prolonged ... but yes  I had a night sweats waking me up and I had to change my shirt ... I made her a list of the symptoms of hiv women and told me he had never suffered from anything like that ...

currently I have had some discomfort in my lymph area under the armpits .. but apparently are not swollen  or i dont feel them swollen, just discomfort ... and a couple of months ago i had about 99.3F of fever  if that is fever.. I had never had a Flu in more then 2 years..

The day yesterday I had sex with protection with a condom with a girlfriend (this is another girl not the same of jan 2012) as i said before im male .. before, when i get down of my car i hit my self with something .. We were talking and then had sex before having sex ... I realized that i had a little cut in my finger and  bleed a little so i wash my hands and place a paper towel on the finger ..... I did NOT insert my cutted finger thru his vagina at no time ... The condom never came off  and after I withdraw it form the penis and in the bathroom I saw that was not broken ...

I found out that his ex-partner is a woman man she has fallen 9 kilos and had numbness in hands and dry mouth , besides that has had many women ... I also know that it has been doing a diet pills that I think that could be the cause of dry mouth and numbness of the hands of his former partner ...

I need to do a test????

According to what I read in this forum
1 - There is no documented case Fingering in 30 + years of this disease ..
2 - it also has dozens den saliva enzymes and proteins that inhibit the transmission of the virus ... but I worried that my bite lip kiss with the woman was first consideration ...

But you if tell me directly that no test is required calms me a lot ... I just Do Not have  the courage to do a test .. and that's why I always try to take all possible precautions when having sex ..

Thanks for your prompt response and a big hug ....

None of the activities you report doing were risks for hiv infection. You did the only thing you need to do in order to avoid hiv infection - you wore a condom for anal or vaginal intercourse.

While you do not need to test over any of the specific activities you have taken part in, as a sexually active adult you should be having a FULL sexual health check up at least once a year. It sounds as though you've never tested, so you should do that and get tested for ALL the STIs, not just hiv.

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.

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!

Condoms are a girl's best friend

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

Ann/ Andy/ Rapid: Thankyou very much.. So please confirm to me
1- Can you get Hiv from fingering Vagina with a cut in the finger??
2- Can you get Hiv from a  bleeding Bite kiss??
3- Can you get hiv if have a little cut on the pennis area because of shaved with a razor?? and hours later had intercourse vaginal sex with condom.

I always had used a condom Always!!!

Like i told you before i just do not have the courage to perform an hiv test, i am very scared... i have always follow the recomendations...

So i just need to know if i really need to perform an hiv test according what i just told before????? I expect no but i will like to hear it from experts it will ease my mind.

I recently had been under a bunch of stress, and depression... and had itchy hands and feet, and in between the fingers... i dont see any bumps in hands and feet, but i have had some dermatiis back in neck.. not of consideration and some bumps on the chest...a couple of them.. and in my high back...

Sorry about any misspelling English is not my native language, but i learn it since i was a kid..

I highly appreciate your time and effort helping me and thousands of people like me...

No, you would not have been at risk when she had her panties on. Only full on penetration without a condom is a confirmed risk for the sexual transmission of HIV.

Get on with your life.
