Please help me assess my incident
« on: January 21, 2019, 12:14:27 pm »
Dear sir(s )/ madam(s),

Thank you very much in advance for your reading my post and I would really appreciate if you can help me access my incident.

About one week ago I had sex with a guy who I didn't know his status very well.  We did not do any sexual intercourse - but  just did  some huggings and body contacts and cuddlings.
The only thing worrying me is that the guy layed down on me and scrubbed his pennis against mine and then suddenly he ejeculated on my scrotch and on the head of my pennis ( the uthera). I am circumcised. I tried to wash and clean it after about 2 minutes
Was I risk of HIV infection as I am nervous that that his ejeculation might have got into my pee hole somehow by the scrubbings and laying on me?

- I was so panic that I took the Pep after that and the Pep name  is Mylan 3-1. The Pep makes me feel so tired, sleepy  and feel dizzy that I couldn't focus on my work and daily activities.
It has been 5 days since I took the this Mylan Pep.

Please help me let me know if I was a risk of HIV over this incident and should I continue using this Mylan 3-1 PEP?

Many thanks again!

Best regards,

Hiya,

Nothing you mentioned here was a HIV concern.

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 as an additional layer of HIV prevention for the future.

Keep in mind that some sexual practices which may be described as safe in terms of HIV transmission might still pose a risk for far to acquire 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.

More information on HIV Basics, PEP, TaSP and Transmission can be found through the links in my signature to our POZ pages, this includes information on HIV Testing

Kind regards

Jim

Dear Jim and others,

Thanks so much for your reply!

Would you please be kind enough to be more specific in affirming on my incident one more time : if even in case that man has HIV and even his semen was on the head of my penis - HIV would not be able to enter through the lining of my foreskin or uthera at the tip of the penis or enter the immune cells on the foreskin or through the abbrassions ( if any) ?

Thanks again - ! Look forward to hearing from you very soon.

HIV is only sexually only transmitted inside the human body like during unprotected penetration during intercourse. This because there are at least 4 conditions that HIV needs to meet to transmit and asides from this HIV is fragile and the receptors used to infect human cells correct in contact with the environment.

This is so much so the case that nobody has sexually been infected from fluids "spillage" once exposed outside the body, neither from rubbing or grinding onto their member

if even in case that man has HIV and even his semen was on the head of my penis - HIV would not be able to enter through the lining of my foreskin or uthera at the tip of the penis or enter the immune cells on the foreskin or through the abbrassions ( if any) ?

"lining of my foreskin or uthera at the tip of the penis" Long story short, this is only one of the conditions that needs to be met and would only be a concern if you enraged in intercourse without a barrier.

Was your one and only sexual encounter in your lifetime? If so than HIV is not an issue as this encounter was not a HIV concern.

You're welcome.

Look this incident was not a concern, however do keep the below in mind going forward; Use condoms for any intercourse, start PrEP as an additional layer of protection for the future and get into the routine of testing like every adult should.
