Possible Hiv exposure ?
« on: March 09, 2020, 10:13:20 pm »
Few days ago i went out with guy. We went to his place after he started jerking himself off and later on he gave me a blow job. And few minutes later he inserted his finger in my ass am not sure if he had precum o cum. But thy was no penetration o anything and I immediately stopped him wen he put his finger in my ass.   

1. What if I contracted something when he gave me a blow job?
2. What if he had cum o precum on his fingers?

After 6 days/ week i started getting muscle and joint pains no fever, no swollen nodes.. until today. Am very worried i cant even study anymore

Hiya,

Your "what if's" are not HIV risks.

Fingering is not how HIV is transmitted or acquired. Despite contact with fluids, cuts, scrapes ect ect ect, nobody has ever been infected this way. 

Receiving a blowjob is also no HIV risk to you, whatsoever.  It lacks all the conditions required for acquiring HIV,  thus it makes sense that after nearly 40 years of this pandemic in terms of BJ's there hasnít been a single documented case of HIV transmission to an insertive partner (the person being "sucked") and you will not be the worlds first.

If this was your only sexual activities/encounter then HIV is not an issue for you. 

Here's what you need to know to avoid HIV infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions. Consider starting PrEP going forward 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 easier to transmit 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

Hiya,

Look I am sorry to hear you have been feeling unwell, however, it has nothing to do with HIV from the activities posted here. Zero!  See your doctor, treat whatever is making you feel unwell so you can stop stressing about it.

Use condoms for any intercourse, no exceptions and test out of standard routine at least yearly for STI's & HIV.

Best, Jim

Hiya,

Sorry to hear that you continue to feel unwell, however, it has nothing to do with HIV from the activities posted here. HIV is not a concern unless you have had other sexual encounters/activities not mentioned here.

Instead of stressing about what might be making you unwell, see your doctor and treat whatever is the causing you to feel unwell.

Best, Jim
