Am I at any risk for HIV??
« on: February 01, 2019, 03:21:37 pm »
Hi guys, this forum is excellent thank you for this!

A week ago I had an oral encounter with a lady that I donít know very well. She gave me a blow job and hand job simultaniously for about 5 minutes. She may have caused tiny tears on my penis, the head of my penis was red-ish afterwards but there were absolutely No blood present. We kissed for about 10mins and I sucked her breast, Iím pretty sure there were no blood and or milk present anytime. Iím not sure if she had cuts in her mouth while giving me a bj, but I do bite my inner lip, so I may well had cuts inside my lip while kissing her. Iím worried that she may have had a tiny cut in her mouth and I had a tiny cut on my penis, this enabling HIV transmission?

I asked her to do a Biosure home HIV rapid finger prick test and she did, it came back negative. She said the last sexual interaction she had was about 8 weeks ago, she only gave the guy a bj. Iím not sure if sheís lying to me, lets assume the worst that she had unprotected intercourse.

Please be honest with me, is there any chance of me getting HIV in this situation taking everything into account? If there is a slight risk please tell me. Do I need testing??

Thank you in advance

Hiya

Her HIV status is totally irrelevant

Getting your penis sucked is simply not a HIV risk, neither is kissing or sucking her breasts. You could have done this all day and night long.

You had no HIV exposure whatsoever from the activities mentioned here.

Move on with your life and remember like every sexually active adult to test out of standard routine for STI's and HIV at least yearly

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.

Keep in mind that some sexual practices which may be described as Ďsafeí in terms of HIV transmission might still pose a risk for transmission of other 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 There, thank you very much for your swift response! It really relieved my anxiety.
Just a last question, does it put me at risk if she did give me tiny scratch marks while giving me a handjob, and now mucus and or blood from a bite  mark or whatever in her mouth can enter my bloodstream infecting me with HIV?? Please elaborate on this...

No.

Getting a blowjob is simply not a HIV risk, no "what if" about it.

Saliva is not HIV infectious, in fact it contains over a dozen elements that neutralize HIV.  Let me put it this way after nearly 40 years of this epidemic in terms of BJ's there hasnít been a single documented case of HIV transmission to an insertive partner (the person being "sucked") as it lacks the conditions required, and so you will not be the worlds first.

Scratches, to your penis do not change this, its not a route to start with, even if it was however it would be irreverent as route is not the barrier that makes a getting a BJ not a risk to begin with as outlined above.

Move on with you life and stop thinking up new & never before happened ways to contract HIV

Thanks again for your reply! I take it that all this is scientifically proven and not just opinions? I will let you know when I test negative!

You might as well go test if you're pregnant.

Your concerns lack all bilogical conditions required for aquiring HIV and hence nobody has ever been infected this way

We rely on the latest scientific peer reviewed science for our assessments and biology. This also gets fed back into the poz pages on transmission risks if needed and great effort is put into ensuring the message is clear.

However no new routes of infection that defy basic  biology of HIV have been discovered and you will not be making world headlines anytime soon either!

If this was your one and only sexual encounter in life than you simply don't have HIV  ;) since I truly doubt that I'll close with "Remember to use condoms for any intercourse no exceptions and test out of standard routine like every sexually active adult should at least yearly for easier to aquire STI's and HIV"
