Dear, Ok here it goes, please don't judge me: About 5 months ago I had unprotected sex with 2 boys. We did this again a few times after the first time ... the last time I had sex with them was 2 months ago (august). Around that last time, they took a blood test, wich were negative (one of them is a doctor). A little while ago (sept) I again had unprotected sex with a guy. I was very drunk but he only went inside me for a very short time and did not cum inside me. Should I be worried? Recently I've been feeling very tired, a bit sick but not really sick, my throat hurts a bit ... I don't often feel sick. I should mention also that I just came back from 6 weeks in a warm country to the cold. It was about that time I started feeling sick so it could have something to do with that too. I'm also stressed.
Another question: Should you be afraid of HIV when a man cums in your mouth and you swallow? And when you spit it out? And when a man comes inside you but doesn't cum inside?? Thanks!!
Since the intercourse was unprotected, with no ejaculation, the risk of infection âthough present, would be less. â
Both giving and receiving oral sex can lead to the transmission of sexually transmitted infections or sexually âtransmitted diseases (also known as STIs or STDs). â
HIV can pose a small risk for both the active (person giving the oral stimulation) and receptive (person receiving oral âstimulation) partner. The linings of the mouth and throat are very resistant to viral infections such as HIV, so âinfection is unlikely if they are healthy. â
Transmission from an HIV positive receptive partner to an HIV negative active partner (YOU) may occur when âsemen is comes into a cut, sore, ulcer or area of inflammation somewhere in their mouth or throat. â
The symptoms mentioned by you, appear to be due to streptococcal pharyngitis, which is common, and is a benign âinfection, that resolves soon in most individuals. â
In case ejaculation occurs during oral sex, it is always wise, to spit it out and rinse your mouth. It is further advisable to always use a condom while performing oral sex, as this completely eliminates the risk of infection.
HIV is diagnosed based on the serological detection in the blood samples, and not from the symptoms that you âmight be having. A person after exposure to HIV can get âtested as early as 4 weeks to 12 weeks with the ELISA for âHIV antibody test. 90% of normal individuals who have HIV âexposure, will seroconvert within 4-6 weeks. The âsensitivity of the ELISA test is 99.9%. â
For people who think they may have been exposed to HIV, having a test and receiving a negative result (which ââmeans they are not infected with HIV), can put their mind at rest. â
To relieve your anxiety and for a definitive âdiagnosis, you might consider getting screened with âHIV test. This will help you get over the past exposure and move âon ahead in your life. â
Thank you. I did an Elisa test recently, this was at exactly 38 days after the last unprotected contact (the last incident I described, in september). It was negative for hiv and other diseases like syfilis, ...
38 days is about 5 and a half weeks, was this enough time? And also, since the test was negative, is it ok for me te conclude that I did not get anything from the unprotected contact I had in august, since that was already more then 2 months ago at the time I took the test? Thank you!
