Am i at risk? If so, do i need to test?
« on: January 07, 2021, 02:31:14 am »
Im gay and i met a guy online.

1. We both were naked and i grinded him. I has anal fissure. If his precum came in contact with my anal fissure xan i be at risk? There wasnt any penetration.

2.Then he started biting my nipples and then my fingures. There wasnt any blood drawn. But still if i had any rupture and if he had bleeding gums can i be at risk?

3.He masturbated a bit and he touched the tip of my penis. If his precum enters my urethra am i at risk?

Please do read it and acknowledge all the points. If i get convinced one point comes back as an anxiety attack. The anal fissure part coming in contact with precum from his penis, the urethra coming in contact with precum, the biting of nipples and fingures with bleeding gums.

Not an HIV concern. The "what ifs" don't change that.

Try to relax, move on with your life, use condoms for any intercourse and test out of standard routine yearly for STI's & HIV.

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

Ive had alotttt of sleepless nights. And this anxiety is killing me. I dont undermine or doubt your prowess. Its just that your big reply has many parts. Im kinda confused.

Confused with, was i at risk regarding Hiv with the activities ive mentioned?

Ill definitely test, but then i just tested 2 months ago...if im at risk id do a test now..else i can wait for like 6 to 7 months...for all the stds...the majorr concern being hiv and the anxiety it builds up is so huge...

The relax and move on part? Does it mean i am not at risk with hiv?

You did answer but theres a lot of testing details which made me quite anxious again...jeezz..im vulnerable...Preps details...stis without symptoms all added up to further anxiety...


I wasnt peneyrated that day...only the activities i said was done and nothing further...

Hiya,

Nothing to be confused about. What you posted is not an HIV concern. So you had no HIV risk from these events, move on with your life.

Use condoms for any intercourse and test out of standard routine yearly for STI's & HIV.

Yeah. Look this is an HIV forum, what you posted here was no HIV risk. As for STI's any sexual contact comes with risks, there is no such thing as safe sex just safer sex. The risks depend greatly on differences in how these diseases or infections infect.

No need to panic each time you have sex, just use condoms during any intercourse to reduce your potential exposure and test out of routine at least yearly for STI's.
