How risk for me
« on: January 10, 2020, 07:56:47 am »
I'm gay. I had sex with guy last night. First he tried to ask me to have sex without condom and I said NO!!!. He took condom and wear on his penis. Then we had sex for a while. He took his penis off from my anal and said his penis was limp. The he tried to insert again and I felt strange from before.Then He showed me condom and said condom was slip away (around 1 - 2 minutes that I recieved unprotected insert). I stop everything, went to bathroom and clean. I tried to ask him why he did it. He always said he didnt ejucate inside me and he didnt infected. I felt angry with him and then I went to hospital and recieved PEP (around 45 minutes - 1 hours). Today I went to hospital again to meet doctor and recieved more PEP. I got Ricovir EM (EMtricitabine+Tenofovir) and raltegravir.

Now I feel stress to infect from this incident. I want to ask that my incident high or low risk. I asked my partner again and he still answered the same and feel angry to me.

Please answer and guiding me how to do next.

Hiya,

Look sorry this happened, the good news is PEP is highly effective when started within 72 hours.

I suspect if this was your only exposure and you finish the course of medication correctly you will be fine, however, just test to confirm this. Test with a blood-drawn HIV antibodies test 6 weeks post-finishing PEP for a result, this result will rarely ever change and if you wish you can test at 3 months post-finishing PEP for a conclusive result.

In the meantime try not to focus on this and live 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 as an additional layer of HIV protection going forward

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.

Kind regards

Jim

For the first time. The result is Negative at 28 days. Im very happy for the result.

But I have the next scenario to concern it again.
Last night i have sex with my partner (we always have sex when we have time). Im bottom and he is top. First i put condom on his penis and he inserted inside of me. Then we have to change position, he noticed me that condom was slip. I could see that condom was not on his penis. He put condom on his penis and we continued until we finished.

After we finished, I told him that i scared about this. He told me that it was slipped while he removed his penis from my anus. He didnt ejucated. He told me dont worry about this.

How about risk and should i have to take PEP?

Glad to hear that, it's a good indicator.

Depends.

Slipped off completely and left behind as in you had to go fishing for the condom, then it's best to presume it was a possible exposure. PEP is up-to-you but the sooner you start the better.

Slipped off whilst withdrawing and, well not to be crude but, condom hanging out of your ass, embarrassing prehaps but not an HIV concern.

This incident aside, you should be considering PrEP as an additional layer of HIV protection going forward. Talk to your healthcare provider about this.

Thanks for your advise. That make me feel better.

Because after he noticed condom was slip, I could see the condom was outside of my ass and he take in his hand.

I will start PrEP as your advice.

Hi, I come back again with my new incident.

I have incident to worry. I have sex with my partner who always my sex partner for 2-3 years. We use condom everytime and for today too. But this happen when he finished and cum inside me.After that he pulled of his penis and his semen drop out from base of his penis to my bottom and bed. But I could see that there were few semen at top of his penis like condom didnt break. Then I went to bin and took a look at condom. The condom had big tear near the ring (base of penis) but tip is ok. That make me anxious. I talked with my partner, first he said that condom didnt break. After I insisted that break, he said there were no semen leak inside me and he pulled off carefully. He told me he had test for every 3 months and he safe. I didnt believe him. I went to take PEP immediately.

I'm not sure about semen leak inside me or not. But when he cum, I couldnt feel like cum without condom. I think to take PEP is right way to do.

Now I feel anxious about this incident. Could you guide me or evaluate my incident?

Hiya

I can only access what you tell me and so far nothing stands out. As long as the condom did not break during the act of intercourse its not an HIV concern. Dripping from the base after the fact is not an issue.

Condoms and issues/anxiety seem to be a reoccurring theme. I'll say this again you should be considering PrEP as an additional layer of HIV protection going forward. Iy might also give you peace of mind. Talk to your healthcare provider about this.

Thank you for your reply and advice

Last time I ever ask my doctor and she suggest me to use condom is OK for me. Maybe I will go to see the other and ask for PrEP
