need help to asses my risk - very worried
« on: February 23, 2020, 09:50:06 pm »
HI POZ Team,

First of all I would like to say thank you to all POZ team member for helping people like me answering question.

I have some doubt with my encounter with CSW 6 days ago.
Little about me, mid 30 male, circumcised, lived in south east asia.
Im no stranger to HIV test, Ive done few test in the last 6 years or so.
My last full check up include STI on January 2019, HIV ( Duo test ) back in Sep 2019 – non reactive.
Back to my encounter with CSW, I had sex with CSW non protective oral, protected anal, protected vaginal finished with cum in her mouth.
My question related to grinding..
After she performed oral on me, she put lubricant and grind me from top, I notice my penis gland in her labia ( Im quite sure is not penetrated anywhere near cervix  because I can see my other half of my penis – top side glands still outside and there is no pressure since her vagina is very tight – apparently she do vaginal surgery to tighten ) after that I push her and ask to put condom on, she put and add more lubricant and we have anal with her on top of me.
After few minutes, she remove my condom and do oral again and try to grind me again with same situation as before – again I push her and ask to put condom and she put the same condom ( condom is not breaking and intact) she put more lubricant and we continue with anal and vaginal sex after that I pull out and roll out my condom and finished in her mouth.
On the side note – her outer vagina had piercing on it as well as her tongue, im afraid this put holes in my condom and somehow im exposed?
There is a lot vaginal fluid when she grinding me ( not sure if this because of the lubricant or saliva as she put her saliva in her vagina as well.
What are chances im getting hiv from this ?
Also, does lubricant and saliva smoothen hiv virus transmission?
I have anxiety and haven’t got good sleep and eat in the last week because of this, please assess my risk.
should i do the test on 21 days ( duo test ) and continue with 6 and 13 weeks ?

Thank you so much and sorry my English is not good since its not my first language

Hiya,

HIV can't transmit through an intact latex or polyurethane condom. If a condom fails during the act of intercourse it's obvious to the insertive partner. There is no reason to be stressing about intercourse as long as this obvious issue did not happen.

Getting your penis sucked is no HIV concern for you and neither is the frottage so the rubbing, grinding is not an HIV concern as long as you did not penetrate her without a condom. 

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

Hi Jim,
hope you are doing well and thanks for your reply.

i took rapid test ( finger prick) not sure which generation test either 2nd or 3rd gen or probably IGG only test on 28 days and 59 days post this incident and the result is negative.
how accurate is rapid  test finger prick ?
i usually do the test in lab with full blood drawn and never use one of the home test.
im going to took another test once the lock down in my area lifted.

stay safe and healthy

thanks

It's simple you do not need to test post this incident, so any test, at any time, would be considered 100% as this was not an exposure.

Unless you had encounters not mentioned here, Move on with your life.

If you ever do have a risk that warrants testing then test for HIV antibodies at 6 weeks post-exposure with blood-drawn lab version, a negative result at that stage would rarely ever change. Retesting for a definite result is generally not needed but if you wish for peace of mind, you can re-test at 3 months.

If you are testing post-exposure with approved rapid tests regardless of generation, they can be somewhat less sensitive to recent infections and the rule of thumb is simply to wait and test at 3 months and the result is considered conclusive.
