Avatar n tn If you stick with oral sex and condom-protected vaginal or anal sex, you have no HIV worries and very little worry about other STDs.

Avatar m tn Hello there. Im a gy male and recently had sex with a guy who is HIV poz. I was the top and a condom was used. I always use condoms regardless of what a person's status is. However I was wondering. Can body fluids enter a condon through the shaft of the condoms? I used a condom and a lot of lube, and the condom did not break. I checked it. Is this considered a high risk?
Avatar f tn I was with a guy last night and we engaged in anal sex. After receiving anal sex by the guy and he used protection. When it it was time for me to get on top, he told me that he is positive but that I was okay. I freaked out and left. To my knowledge the condom didn't break and he pulled out after he came. I called and he told me that the condom didn't break but I am so scared right now. Would I need testing? I am so scared I was put at risk.
Avatar m tn Drank too much at a bar on December 3rd and ended up having brief unprotected vaginal sex with a guy for approximately 1 minute - 2 minutes after he had spent a while performing oral sex and fingering me. Here are the details I have since compiled on the guy.
Avatar n tn I dated an HIV+ guy for almost a year during which time I fell in love with him, unfortunately, I was unable to cope with the fact that he was HIV+ and we broke up. I was tested and I am still negative, which is reassuring, however, I still love him so very much. I have a couple questions for you: 1) What do you think about dating someone who is HIV+, do you believe that two people can be safe enough or is it just playing Russian roulette? 2) Is there any foreseeable cure or vaccine?

Avatar f tn The fact that they asked to have sex without a condom proves they dont have a responsible approach to sex, and is probably why they are hiv positive to begin with. You were never at risk. You should test only because you are sexually active and it is recommended yearly for sexually active people and more often if you have multiple partners, not because you are at risk. Use condoms and you wont have a problem. Congrats on a responsible approach to sex.
Avatar m tn the period between infection and when the HIV antibody tests turn positive. That is the period when people with HIV have among the highest viral loads and are more infectious than at any other time. And of course unprotected anal sex is the highest risk for HIV prevention of all sexual practices. However, even with that bad news, the odds are in your favor.
Avatar f tn I will quote "TEAK" quoting some of the BEST doctors in this field. Before you ask about the scarring in your mouth, please note that the only kind of wound that would pose a threat would be one that needs immediate medical attention, NOT a two-week old scar. You had protected intercourse, and that's all that matters. 1. No incident HIV infections among MSM who practice exclusively oral sex. Int Conf AIDS 2004 Jul 11-16; 15:(abstract no. WePpC2072)??
Avatar n tn I have ALWAYS been super paranoid about contracting HIV and don't know if I can spend a life worrying about it especially being involved with someone who is confirmed as being positive. He's such a sweet guy and gave me his word that he would not do anything to harm either of us, but I'm so confused and worried. Should I get tested? What was my risk? Any insight will be helpful.
Avatar n tn Well, putting aside the likely possibility that the gentleman in question was having a bit of cruel fun at your expense, the scenario that you described does not indicate that you were at risk for contracting HIV. The simple fact of the matter is that HIV does not really seem to be passed with oral/genital contact. If it did happen, it would be an extreme statistical outlier and would be fairly big news.
Avatar m tn Is handjob even a risk for transmitt hiv? Is handjob really safe from a hiv positive person giving to a hiv negative person? From the forum i read, is handjob no different from touching a person such as massage, holding hand... etc?
Avatar m tn And oral sex is basically safe sex -- completely safe with respect to HIV and although not zero risk for other STDs, the chance of infection is far lower than for unprotected vaginal or anal sex. Please educate yourself about the real risks. If you stick with oral sex and condom-protected vaginal or anal sex, you have no HIV worries and very little worry about other STDs.
Avatar n tn i cant help but wonder if both our results were wrong, hers at 10 weeks and mine at 6, 13 and 15 weeks. it was hard enough trying to put this out my head but now im even more scared to death. i still have a swollen lymph node in the neck and sometimes i see something white in my troat, but cant tell if its a muscle or what they call trush. please respond anyone!!..this is driving me insane again. how long after your exposure did you test positive for syphilis and negative for hiv Natedov?
Avatar n tn and try to do everything as safe as possible - but it's situations like this that make me question if it's worth it. In the past year and a half, i've had safe sex with one guy a few times (I know for sure he's negative) and I have oral sex performed on me by three other guys (one time each). I figured all this was safe, until the last encounter. Everyone tells me that I'm overreacting...and maybe I am. I try to get tested annually. My next annual test is in sept.
Avatar m tn The guy you had oral sex with is probably safer having safe sex and oral sex with than some one he dosnt know the status of. Some newley infected is very infectious. You seem perfectly healthy. Don't let the HIV rule you're life.
Avatar n tn 1) Know your partner. Hopping in the sack with someone you just met, especially bar pick-ups and the like, is very high risk. Ask about symptoms or recent STD diagnosis, and always specifically ask whether a partner has HIV or is at particularly high risk for it (bisexual men, injection drug uers, etc). 2) A corollary to knowing your partner: Avoid situations that are obviously tempting or that impair judgment, e.g. getting high or drunk in a bar or other meat market setting.
Avatar n tn In addition to the simple humanity of not putting people through the fears you are feeling, intentions for safe sex often go by the boards in the heat of the moment. HIV infected persons have an absolulte ethical obligation to inform their potential partners, even when condoms, oral sex, or other safe sex practices are planned. Bottom line: You truly can relax in the confidence you weren't infected, and from a risk assessment perspective you do not need testing.
Avatar f tn Is there any other way besides condoms to ensure his safety? ----------- Don't have sex during your period. Avoid anal sex or any sort of "rough" sex where blood might be involved or have sex with any exposed sores such as during a Herpes outbreak. Don't share toothbrushes, razors, nail files, combs or other personal items.
1024580 tn?1331577721 There has been a great deal of interest and many research papers written about the HIV risks associated with oral sex and similarly many studies to try to determine why the risk of oral sex with an HIV positive person might be less than that associated with unprotected penetrative vaginal or anal sex.

Avatar n tn but what about the unprotected oral sex, did I tell you the guy like to have casual sex?
Avatar m tn she told me she has a boyfriend that is the only guy she had unprotected sex with. We also had protected sex about 10 mins before, and I couldn't finish, thats why the unprotected sex happened, I pulled out after 30 second terrified.
Avatar m tn I recently began dating the HIV pos man.. is it safe for me to do unprotected oral sex with him... and protected anal of course???
Avatar f tn Are there people who did not contract HIV after such sex with a partner with high viral load? Again, yes. 3. Sex may last about 5 to 10 minutes. Can such duration said to be prolonged exposure? That wouldn't be considered a prolonged exposure, and the brevity of the exposure would work in your favor, however again, this is all speculation. Testing will tell you definitively whether you were infected or not. Why haven't you tested yet? How long has it been since this incident?
