Bleeding penis - unprotected bj
« on: February 10, 2019, 04:38:02 am »
Hi Moderators,

Thank you so much for your time.

My only incident is getting my penis sucked unprotected by a sex worker in Africa. I realize this is no risk whatsoever however I have a wart on my penis that actively bleeds from time to time. Right after the incident I noticed my wart was bleeding (probably due to the vigorous and rough bj) and now I am super worried of acquiring HIV. If she had any blood present in her mouth, and my wart bleeding while she was giving me a blowjob would be a risk for acquiring HIV? Please help.

I read your post three times.

It was no HIV risk to you whatsoever, so if this was your only sexual actity than, simply move on with your life

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 in the future 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 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

Thank you so much Jim for your assessment. Thank you for reading my post 3 times as well. All ok to have unprotected sex with my gf then I’d assume? I really feel like a dog for doing this but of course alcohol was present when I had this incident with the sex worker. Definitely learnt my lesson here.

No HIV risk from getting your penis sucked. You might as well be asking me if you as a male could end up becoming pregnant from this  ;) So simply stop and move on.

As for your partner well different story, if you have been or are engaging in condomless intercourse as example it's a clear HIV risk meeting all the bilogical conditions required  and it's a greater STI risk

Nobody here is going to tell you it's okay to engage in unprotected intercourse ever. Read the below again carefully!

Thanks Jim..my gf and I are in a ‘monogamous’ relationship and have been tested for HIV 6 months ago and we have been having unprotected sex ever since. That’s why I asked if all good to continue the unprotected sex with her.

Thanks again Jim

Great she tested 6 months ago meaning 9 months ago she did not have HIV, totally irrelevant today though and, plenty of members here to testify to acquiring HIV in "monogamous" relationships ...

See i don't judge couples that decide to engage in unprotected intercourse, its often based on trust within a relationship,and totally up to you. What I am telling you is the simple fact its accepting a HIV risk. See trust or faith in people does not prevent HIV transmission and any unprotected intercourse, simply meets all the biological conditions needed, hence the risk assessment is that engaging in this activity is therefor accepting a possible HIV risk and a greater risk of easier to transmit STIs.

Jim
