Unprotected oral and protected anal
« on: July 13, 2018, 05:41:07 am »
I know getting a blow job is 'no risk' 'low risk etc etc but I am anxious for what I feel are valid reasons.

I had a routine sti checkup 2 weeks ago. All came back clear. I was treated with gonorrhea/chlamydia just as precaution as 5 days before I was tested I recieved unprotected oral.

Now for peace of mind I decided to order a home sti kit. Its a urine sample and blood sample which is sent back to the clinic. I took these samples 14 days post my oral episode.

Anyway the clinic now want me to call them which can only be bad news. I can't see it being a sti as like I said I was treated for that and already had a clear test.

I haven't had any unprotected intercourse in the last 2 months and the only thing I can come back to is the oral.

They could be calling for a number of reasons.

Btw 3 months post exposure is conclusive not 2 months. Next time use a condom for any intercourse is the lessons and test correctly instead of worrying about oral encounters

Thanks for for the response.

As Jim said the clinic was simply calling to tell me I didn't submit enough blood for a valid test.

I got tested again today at a gum clinic and just got my results which were negative. The nurse told me me there was really no need to test as there is zero risk from receiving a BJ.

For those in the same situation please stay away from Google and 'hiv symptoms'. Honestly it will do you no good. The risk is what matters.

I have muscle aches, joint pain, my groin lymph node inflamed and I had a rash for 2 days on my chest.

Putting 2+2 together I came up with hiv. Don't do it people.

I will now see my GP to get to the bottom of my health issues.

Call me paranoid but just wanted to check have no need to test.

Recieved unprotected oral and then I performed protected anal to completion. Condom was fully intact when pulling out, no shredding, no split.

1 week later went to clinic to test for Gonorrhea and Chlymida as penis felt sensetive and itchy. Test came back clear.

12 days post encounter feel ill. Headaches, achy and nasal congestion. 15 days still nasal congestion but that's about it.

I know logic and everything I've read says I was at no risk just wanting to make sure.

Relax, if what you posted was your only sexual activity since your last test than there is no reason to worry about HIV. 

Getting your penis sucked is not how HIV is transmitted and, as for the intercourse HIV can not transmit through an intact condom. Now when they fail during intercourse they shred leaving no doubt so, as long as this did not happen there is no reason to stress and, no reason to test outside of standard routine.

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. Consider starting PrEP as an additional layer of prevention for the future

As you are sexually active, it is highly recommended that you get a full sexual health check-up / screening at least annually including but not limited to hiv testing.

Remember that some sexual practices which may be described as ‘safe’ in terms of HIV transmission might still pose a risk for transmission of other STI's. So please do get fully tested regularly for all STI's including HIV and more frequently if unprotected intercourse occurs. Also note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms and the only way of knowing is by testing.

Finally use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, to avoid sexually transmitted hiv infection.

Kind regards

Jim

I had an encounter with a transexual two weeks ago.  I recieved unprotected oral and I performed protected insertive anal. Now reading the many posts on here this means I was not at risk. My concern is before the anal I was rubbing my penis unprotected around the anal area but always made sure the head of my penis never touched the anal hole. The partner also rubbed both penis's together unprotected. Again as far as I know none of this should have been a Hiv risk?

24 hours later I had unprotected vaginal sex which of course would be a risk but this person is well aware of their status and I was there first encounter after her last check up 4 weeks prior. My concern is 11 days after we had sex she got very sick. Sore throat, body aches, nausea and has described never feeling this sick ever.

I'm going to get tested tomorrow but feel terrible thinking I have infected her. I'm extremely scared and honestly don't know what I will do if I've done this to her.

Everything I read tells me my encounter with the transexual was no risk and my previous Sexual intercourse encounters in the last 2 months have all been protected and condom has always been intact afterwords.

The concern I have is the mutual maturbation and anal area rubbing which what I'm reading is no risk.

Mutual masturbation is not a risk for HIV-infection.

Frottage (rubbing) is also not a risk, even near the anus.

Most of your other activities, according to your post, were protected sex.

Please access this link to learn about how the virus is transmitted.

https://www.poz.com/basics/hiv-basics/hiv-transmission-risks

The only activity in your post that could be a risk for HIV-infection is the unprotected vaginal sex you recount in your second paragraph, if your partner is HIV-positive (despite her being "well aware" of her status, if she is mistaken in that "awareness").

You did not infect her, as a result of the other activities you have described, since those activities were not risks, but if she is positive, you could be at risk.  If she is negative, you are not at risk.

If you are worried about that, test for HIV-antibodies and work with your healthcare provider until your received conclusive results.

Thank you this is what I believed to be the case. I test every 3 months and since my last test in September I have always had protected intercourse just the mutual masturbation and frottage freaked me out.

After the recent unprotected vaginal encounter I'll test again.
