Hi Sir,
 I didn稚 have unprotected sex no drugs and no blow job or anything. The only exposure I had was a hand Job from a lady who had a bleeding cuts in her hands and fingers and when she rubbed my urethra and head of the penis I saw a blood coming contact with my urethra and open of my Penis and also around the surface of foreskin. I had genetial herpes and also had open cut sore and itchy bumps on my foreskin and urethra. My penis head and urethra also has some itchy red pimple like dots which I had it since last 2 weeks. It could be Balanitis.
1. Since I certainly saw a blood that came in contact with my cuts and open wounds and also on foreskin am I exposed to hiv?

2. If no why am not exposed?

3. Is having genetial herpes and balanitis increase the risk of hiv as the skin is already broken and easily accessible to blood stream?

4. Seeing fresh cut and blood in her hand which she used to rub my penis urethra and hand Job is definitely not an imagination as I clearly saw the blood and it was also there on my open cut and sores. Definitely I had a blood contact with my bare penis which had cuts sores and abrasions. Am I at risk?

I知 very stressed and feeling terrified at this moment. Please help

So what's the story here? she needed urgent medical attention and yet gave you a handjob instead?
 
Anyhow no HIV concern from what you posted, HIV is sexually transmitted in quantity limited to within the confines of the human-body. Nobody has ever acquired HIV in the manner that you are concerned (Classed as Spillage) and you will not be the worlds first either.

No amount of herpes or other conditions on your genitals change that. 
So relax, and focus on your real world risks instead:

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

Hi Sir,

No story sir. Just a seconds before she started to give the blow job she accidentally pricked herself by rough edge and there was a bleeding. I saw blood oozing not dripping as such but she proceeded to give the hand job. It was only when she finished i saw stains of blood on penis head, on urethra including on Balinitis and herpes sores. Then i checked her hand and just pressed and again blood came out.

That's when i realized that it was a fresh wound and there was a split seconds between blood came in contact with environment and immediately came in contact with my open sores (herpes and Balinitis).

That is why i am very worried now that my broken mucous membrane came in contact with a fresh blood in very very short span of time. That is what i am worried about and not sure if i need to start the PEP?

Can you please consider the above incident and provide me a risk assessment sir?

Thank you

Hi sir,

No risk even after direct blood contact with broken mucous membrane in very short time?

Is it not even considered as a theoretical risk?

So sir even if all the above situation has happened in reality in my case still no risk?

Not sleeping due to this as the blood I saw still makes me think I知 at risk sir

Asked and answered already.

Look nothing you mentioned was a HIV concern, it did not meet all the conditions required and nobody has been infected the way you fear.

Instead of focusing on "What if" an elephant could fly issues, focus instead on things that do and can happen and reduce your risks in those activities.

Dear Sir,

Thank you for the response.

I took a paid subscriptions because i had few more concerns to check with you sir.

Sir, Whatever i mentioned it's really not an imagination or What-If scenario sir. I wish i would not have seen the blood but unfortunately my worst fear came true and I did see blood stains on my penis (in terms of quantity also it looked visible to naked eye and probably more than 1 to 2 ml). As i mentioned earlier my penis had herpes and more importantly the head of the penis both urethra and area around it was covered by blood.

There was a visible blood on the towel and also in her hand. That blood should have oozed and came in contact with my exposed penis during the process of hand job. That means there was no lag time between blood coming out and came in contact with my penis head. It was very very quick.

What worries me apart from this is also, since there was a red raised pimple like spots in my penis around urethra and when i tried to squeeze one such pimple a tiny drop of blood and a clear liquid came out of it. So it was definitely an open wound.

I also going through some websites which says having an infection in the penis head and urethra makes hiv transmission easier due to the presence of immune cells and CD4 cells in and around the wound thus make hiv virus to bind easily.

Considering my above true situation could you please to explain your assessment on my risk. It's been 14 hours since the exposure. I am still worried a lot about this. My marriage is scheduled on 14th of Feb and am very worried about this exposure.

Thank you so much for your help sir.

Hiya,

I'm not going to continue answering the same question over and over again. Either you accept the risk assessment or don't but there is no point asking about the same again.

Please understand your herpes changes nothing! Stop harping on about it, 80% of the adult population has one or another version of herpes and it doesn't magically change the conditions required for HIV transmission

The handjob and a bit of blood or wound fluid is not a HIV risk, despite cuts wounds and boo boo nobody has ever been infected with HIV this way as HIV needs quantity to infect inside the body as exposure to the environment leaves the receptors damaged and unable to infect human cells!

You saw prehaps some blood, a bit few ml's or a trace and are panicking for no reason whatsoever. HIV transmission is always a biological event and what you posted here meets none of the biological requirements

Now if she had cut her hand off, requiring urgent medical  care and instead of calling for help before passing out decided  to use her bloody stump to rub your penis, than a theoretical risk, as in less odds of me being hit by a meteorite in the head whilst having a bath. ;D

I've given you clear context about when a cut or blood is an issue and you are not even close, also it's never happened before so stop stressing about never before happened in human history events!

Congratulations I mean that and wish you both all the best

Use condoms for any intercourse and test out of routine like everyone should at yearly for HIV and the far easier to aquire STI's.

Jim

Nothing more to add sir and Thank you for wishes.

Irrespective of fresh bleeding cut from her just a second before the act of handjob, even though the blood that is fresh has come in contact with my balanitis, herpes and urethra within seconds, despite seeing it on the all over my penis head and actively bleeding cut in her hand after hand job, If you still say it's a Zero risk i would be happy to believe that sir.
But still not able to understand the fact that how it could be a no risk when everything including blood and cuts are new and there is a split second difference between bleeding and that is coming in contact with my cuts herpes and balanitis.
May be I am not able to understand the complete science behind it. If you find sometime please help to explain in science terms sir.

Thank you

Your concern simply lacks exposure to viable HIV, I've explained this and lacks quantity to infect and overcome the barrier, hence nobody have been infected this way and worrying about being the first in recorded history is irreverent

Focus on your real risks, reduce them and test out of routine at least yearly

Hi sir, it痴 been 20 days since I had the incident I mentioned and was told that mine is no risk situation. But since today I知 having a pounding headache tiredness joint pain and lymph nodes in my groin and around neck is swollen. Feeling like I知 going to have a throat pain soon. Having overall discomfort in the throat.

I知 not sure why I知 havinh this. Do they look like ars symptoms?

Also is day 20 is ars timing?

Any help in answering and assurance will ease my mind.

The most scary part is I called the massage centre where I visited and checked if the lady who massaged me Stil there and the receptionist replied that she is sent home because she failed some medical exam. I知 very afraid now. Tomorrow is my marriage and I m feeling terrible and scared. Please help

You had no risk from the activities posted here, we have explained this in detail.
I am not willing to pretend what you posted is a concern as, it would be a disservice to you and the millions of people living with HIV.

If your left leg and right arm was to fall off right now, it simply would not change the fact that it has nothing to do with HIV from the encounter posted. HIV is not a concern unless you had other risks that you have failed to mention like unprotected intercourse or sharing IV drug rigs.

Whatever is wrong with the receptionist its not your concern, why would it be? See as long as you did not have unprotected intercourse with the receptionist then there is no HIV risk from her to you.

I wish you well but there is truly nothing more we can do for you in this setting. I have explained how HIV is and is not acquired, how to avoid infection and I have provided you with a risk assessment of your encounter and explained safer sex.

Consider the topic is closed, unless you have had real exposures you would like to discuss. In the meantime move on with your life and, if you can't then speak to someone face to face to help you cope with your fears

Best, Jim

No sir. Regarding the risk the activity I mentioned is the only one which I was indulged in.
I知 virgin and never used drug and never had blood transfusions.
Only the unprotected handjob is the only activity but only worried because I saw some blood on urethra and around my inner foreskin. That痴 the only incident.

Well than you have no rational reason for concern, as you simply had no HIV risk from the activities posted here.

As said I am not willing to pretend either, no matter how fearful or sick you feel.

If you can't move past this irrational fear speak to a therapist face to face to help you cope.

Please do not post about this again, doing so will lead to a time out from the forum (Ban) out of kindness to encourage you to seek face to face support.

Remember to use condoms for any intercourse going forward and out of standard routine like every sexually active adult should test for HIV and far easier to transmit STI's at least yearly.
