Brief Insertion
« on: April 04, 2014, 09:23:46 PM »
Hi everyone :) I will keep this short as I know you get an overwhelming amount of messages!

I began to take part in a study known as "project PrEP". It provides me with Truvada as a preventative measure. I have been in the study since September of last year and have taken the medicine consistently.

Three weeks ago, i had a sexual encounter with a guy from Craigslist. We'd met up before, he usually performs oral and then I top him (with a condom).  But that night, he performed oral, put a condom on, bottomed for a few minutes, then took the condom off and  performed oral on me again. When i was close, he asked me to cum inside him. I jacked off until i was close and then pushed my penis against his butthole.  Most of the head went in and out as i came.  The whole penis never went in.  Before this, he had mentioned that he had tested negative in January. He also mentioned that He only did this with me. 

Earlier today i developed a headache and a fever. He messaged me asking if i was free tonight and i asked him about his hiv status.  I tested last month amd tested negative on March 25, 2014. He said he tested negative in january but that there were some drunken nights...

I am fully aware of the risks of this and obviously regret putting my health in danger.  I suppose it was a "heat of the moment thing" but even that isnt a good enough reason.

Im just wondering what my risk is at this point, considering the factors mentioned:

On PrEP, and insertion of the head for no longer than 30 seconds

Brief insertions for the insertive partner rarely result in transmission of HIV, that coupled with the fact that you are on a very effective Prep regimen that you are adherent to makes it extremely unlikely you have anything to worry about . Other than that we cant give odds on transmission, I would say next to nothing in my opinion .   

I assume that you are getting tested regularly since you are in a study, so just follow up and make sure you test at the appropriate time .

 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!

Hello Mr. Jeff!

I just wanted to update you amd whomever else reads this post. I went in and tested negative/nonreactive at the six week test (via the oraquick test). While i know the result isnt 100% at six week, it has definitely provided me with some peace of mind. I urge everyone that reads this to get tested, and choose to make wise decisions. The worry and uncertainty faced for weeks is definitely not worth a spur of the moment sexual escapade.
