Cracked lips,ulcer and vaginal fluids, am I at risk?
« on: May 29, 2020, 01:42:53 am »
Dear all,

I been reading quite a lot about this and very worried if I might have contracted HIV.

First exposure -

I was with this girl and due to the dry weather, I had cracked lips. I was not bleeding profusely from the cracked lip but certainly there was a split or (maybe more than 1 split) on my lips due to the dry weather. I remember certainly I felt the cracked lip. I might also have an ulcer inside my mouth.

I did not do any vaginal or anal intercourse. I did not perform any cunnilingus.

However the girl was using her fingers to masturbate her vagina and rubbed her nipples, after which I did lick and suck her nipples.

I am pretty sure there are some vaginal fluids on her nipples. I am worried that her vaginal fluids have been in contact with my cracked lips or potentially ulcer, no matter how big or small the cracked lip is, it wasnt an intact membrane?



Second exposure -

I had an unprotected blowjob from a girl and cummed in her mouth

Can the experts here advise if I am at risk?

No HIV risk whatsoever and the condition of your mouth is irrelevant.

HIV is fragile and sexually only transmitted during certain activities within the confines of the human body as in never leaving the confines of the human body, like during condomless intercourse.

No HIV risk whatsoever.

Receiving a blowjob is no HIV risk to you. 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 hasn’t been a single documented case of HIV transmission to an insertive partner (the person being "sucked") and you will not be the worlds first.

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 talking to your healthcare provider about 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

hi JIM

If the girl has vaginal fluid on her fingers and touched my cockhead and penis, am I at risk? I don't remember this happening but I just like to know the risk.

Also, what about the HIV risk of someone with cracked lips performing cunnilingus?

No HIV risk whatsoever. I already mentioned that transmission is sexually limited to certain activities within the confines of the human body.

See HIV is fragile and the receptors needed to infect corrode once exposed outside the human body, in addition, this concern would lack a number of other conditions required to acquire HIV.

Well, the fluid a woman produces when sexually excited comes from the Bartholin's glands, this is a lubricating fluid and does not have any more HIV present than other bodily secretions such as saliva, sweat or tears.  Saliva, sweat and tears are not infectious fluids.

This is only one of the many issues and barriers to this being a real HIV problem. All in all, simple Cunnilingus does not meet the biological/environmental requirements needed for HIV transmission.
