- Dec 22 I went out for lunch and after that  I saw a red dot ( didn't feel hurt at all  ) with blood in my foot . I was so scared that maybe I stabbed by a needle or not . I didn't know why I have that dot , maybe someone pocked me with the needle ????
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1M-5-MtBYxg73wJwzY8TtVWjh60cnfCjO/view?usp=drivesdk ( red dots in my foot , still have until now )
- Yesterday Dec 31 I found a axillary lymph nodes on my right axillary . I was freaking me out because yesterday was exatcly 2 weeks since my accident and 8 weeks since my 1st oral .

If you had been stabbed or stabbed yourself with a needle and than been injected with backwash you would have known about it.  This looking at dots on your foot and panicking about needles is somewhat irrational particularity considering nobody has ever been infected by a discarded needle.

So if this is the only sexual contact you have ever engaged in. then you have no reason to stress. See without gaping wounds or damage to your mouth this concern lacks the route (cells) to infect and on top of that the virus is very fragile, your mouth has dozens of protein and enzymes that damage the virus receptors rendering it unable to infect. 

Its such a near negligible concern we don't recommend running out to test, stressing or worrying about it. Just get tested whenever you happen to be due for your regular STI/HIV standard checkup

See your GP regarding your symptoms, and treat whatever is making you ill, it simply sounds like run of the mill common to this time of year issues.

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid HIV infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions. Consider starting PrEP going forward as an additional layer of protection against HIV

Keep in mind that some sexual practices which may be described as safe in terms of HIV transmission might still pose a risk for transmission of other easier to transmit STI's, so please do get fully tested regularly and at least yearly for all STI's including but not limited to HIV and test 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.

Thank you so much for your concern . I wanna ask u some questions :
1 . If I brush teeth before or after os , is it increase the chance of hiv . I remember I clean up my body and brush teeh after oral sex , I feel so regret about it now .
2. Is the axillary lymph nodes ARS of hiv if it appears after 8 weeks since my 1st oral sex ?
And yes , oral sex for a guy is my only sex activity . I think I oral sex for him around 15 mins , kinda long time so I'm really afraid of hiv

Like I said if this is the only sexual contact you have ever engaged in, then you have no reason to stress. Your answer however suggests that you are prehaps sexually active with women? I say this as your answer is very specific about"guys"

Look use condoms for any intercourse, no exceptions and test at least yearly for HIV and far easier to transmit STI's

No difference, brushing your teeth does not equal gaping wounds in your head and even if you had "open bleeding/active" wounds I would still tell you to move on with your life as it would still be a near negelible concern

ARS is largely exaggerated now lymph nodes swell for just about everything and nothing at all. Leave them alone and see your GP and treat whatever is making you ill.

All in all nothing you mentioned about the BJ is any reason to be concerned about HIV as you had no real world exposure from this event

Sorry for my bad English . I'm gay and I have oral sex with a male unprotected ( actually this is my 1st sex experience , I just did oral and nothing else ) but I already freaking me out . I hope I can relieve stress , 'cause I think about it too much these days that make me can not sleep at night because of afraid of hiv . If I knew oral activity made me anxiety like this , I would never try haizzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz .

Right I understand now.

I'm sorry to hear you can't sleep and have so much stress but end of the day its all in your mind as the reality is you have no logical reason to stress or freak out over a blowjob. The virus is very fragile, and your mouth has dozens of protein and enzymes that damage the virus and render it unable to infect. There is no need to run test pr panic every time you give a blowjob, no reason to be scared its such a near negligible concern.

Try to relax, put it behind you and see your regular doctor and treat whatever is making your lymph nodes swell (stop poking them) test for HIV antibodies if you like for peace of mind, but that is all its for as you have no real world concern.

Going forward for HIV & STI's just get into a routine of testing for HIV and STI's at least yearly like every sexual active adult should. As you are becoming sexually active next to condoms, do consider PrEP (Pre-exposure prophylaxis) going forward as an additional layer of protection against HIV, this might also give you additional peace of mind. Talk to your doctor about the availability of PrEP in your area .

Take care

Jim

David!

You post was removed, please only post here and read the welcome thread found at the top of this section again.

In short, Cum in your eyeball is not a HIV concern.

Now you had no real risk from given a BJ that warranted testing in the first place, you did test anyway. There is nothing left for us to asses in your case.

Now relax and move on with your life already, you are creating nothing but stress for yourself over nothing!
