Unprotected possible partial penetration
« on: November 10, 2013, 08:08:21 PM »
Hi. First of all thanks for your help in advance.

Incident: I used a dildo on a guy and played with his anus. Then I took it out and rubbed my penis on his hole without protection. I did not have anal sex with him at all, I just rubbed my penis on his hole. I then laid down and he sat on top of me. He rubbed his hole on my penis, but I fear that when he was sitting on me there may have been partial penetration (I don't even think my entire head went in) but the way he was sat and the fact that he had a dildo up his anus prior to that makes me think that this may have happened. So in summary- a lot of frottage, likely partial and minimal penetration. I am circumcised if that makes a difference.

This was about four days ago. I have now got a sore throat and coughing, am experiencing mild flu like symptoms and also had a cold sore developing (felt the tingly sensation) but it never developed. My temperature is normal and I don't have any of the other symptoms.

I am going for an HIV test tomorrow, luckily in the uk it is free, and will do again at a 5 week mark (going on holiday week 6) and 3 month mark as well.

So like most people here I have been going slightly insane. How likely is it that I have contracted HIV? I don't know what the status of the guy I was with is.

Again, thank you.

You did not have a risk for HIV from what you have described.

The risk factors for HIV are ...

Sharing IV drug needles immediately after use.
Unprotected anal and vaginal sex.
Mother to child during or shortly after birth
Very specific healthcare situations.

Use condoms for vaginal and anal sex consistently and correctly and you will avoid HIV infection, it is that simple.

Thanks for the quick reply- do you mean to say that partial and minimal penetration during frottage (penis to anus) does not constitute to anal sex? And that there is minimal risk of having contracted HIV due to this? And would the use of the dildo not have enabled the Anal fluid to be present on the hole or near it inside?

HIV is fragile and is instantly damaged when exposed to oxygen due to temperature and slight changes in PH levels , it renders HIV unable to infect once outside the human body .

You would have known if you penetrated a guy but if you are uneasy and unsure you can test for peace of mind if nothing else . The testing window period for HIV is 6 weeks past any possible exposure and again at 3 months to confirm the results .

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!
