« on: November 17, 2019, 07:51:10 pm »
I made a big mistake, i slept with a poz guy(not on treatment) ,i was drunk i thought it will be safe as it was no anal sex as i donít have a condom, we kissed and i recived a blow job , we was both fully naked, there was a contact between our penis and he frotted his penis on my anus and i did so but no penetration happend, my big concern is that he gets very excited so he claw me with his nails on my chest and face , then he cum on my chest, his semen was in contact with thoses scratches he made on my chest and face (but no semen in my eyes or mouth) the day after i asked him he said he is poz
I felt that iím dying , now i am very worried and i donít know what to do!

None of the activities you have described in you post put you at risk of HIV-infection, regardless of your partner's positive HIV-antibody status:  it's the activities that matter.

Kissing is not a risk for HIV-transmission, even if your partner is positive for HIV-antibodies.

Receiving unprotected oral sex is not a risk of HIV-transmission (though other STD's/STI's could be transmitted), even if the person performing the oral sex is positive for HIV-antibodies.

Frottage is not a risk for HIV-transmission, even if your partner is positive for HIV-antibodies.

The HIV is fragile and does not survive in a viable manner in the ambient environment, so could not be transmitted through semen in contact with scratches on your chest or face.

You also claim that you did not engage in unprotected anal sex, so you had no risk of transmission through anal intercourse.

Please access this link to learn how the virus is transmitted:


I have no idea why you think you are dying, but if you are ill, seek an evaluation with a healthcare professional to evaluate whatever symptoms or other reasons that lead you to think you are dying (the HIV does not cause acute death, but takes years to cause damage that could be fatal as a result of depleted immunity and the onset, potentially, of various opportunistic diseases that cause death).

There is no reason for you to test for HIV-antibodies as a result of the activities you have described in your post.
