I performed oral, got semen in my mouth (I have braces + bleeding gums)

Earlier today, I performed oral on a sexually active person I just met. He gave me his test results from a month ago that tested negative, and we used a condom during anal sex. However, I performed oral on him later with no condom. He came in my mouth without warning, and I was worried that I might contract a disease from him (possibly HIV) because I wear braces, and my gums bleed, and I just brushed my teeth 30 minutes before encounter. We also talked for a good 20 minutes post-coitus, so I guess a small fraction of his semen was wallowing in my mouth during then. I am really scared. I am 18, and my parent had no idea. Should I get tested? Thank you!

urethral discharge and hiv in oral sex

I know doing a fellatio to an hiv+ person is a neglible risk of contract hiv if there isn't an cum ejaculation, but I want to ask you if the hiv+ have another std, like chlamydia or gonorrhea or syphilis, and this person has infectious fluid for this std, like urethral discharge or fluid of a chancre, if this fluids increases significatly the risk of hiv transmission. This fluids have hiv in important concentration, or hiv is only in important concentrations in cum and blood in men?
Thanks, and my apologizes for my bad english.

Protected Sex but menstrual blood


I am a 19 year old who had a protected (condom) sexual intercourse with a girl of same age.
It was a one-time incident and my first "one-night stand" while she had 10+ partners before.

we had protected sex but there was menstrual blood because she was on her period.
I had no cuts or wounds on near my crotch (ballsack?) but it did come in contact with the menstrual blood.

This happened about 50 days ago. It's been on my mind for a while.
I'm generally paranoid about bodily diseases.
Even the first time I had protected sex with a girl, I was worried about transimission through kissing.

Please let me know if I should be worried

Penis touched to outer surface of vagina

Helloo.. recently I had sex with some women. Unfortunately my penis got into contact with her outer surface of vagina(near the entry hole) for a minute or so. Then I realized and used a condom. Will I be infected by HIV virus?? I don't know whether she had HIV virus or not

Condom slipped during anal sex


I recently had protected anal sex with a guy I am dating. I was top and he was bottom. I have no idea of his HIV status. What happened was that when I pulled my penis out of his anus, the condom reversed and was only stuck in the head of my penis. I noticed there was some bleeding on the condom even though we had used lubricant. I'm not 100% sure if the head of my penis was completly covered but I guess it was because when i tryed to remove it I had to pull it hard because it was stuck in the foreskin.

Does this put me at a high risk of HIV infection?

Thank you so much in advance for your help.

zipper accident before mutual masturbation

I had a zipper accident before the day i got with a girl. The accident happened in a way that while opening my zipper it hitted the head of my penis ( i am circumcised) n the skin which got hitted became red and there scar maybe formed or skin might just became black (sorry for the confusive words) .
Next day I met a girl but I did not know that she was HIV negative or HIV positive. I fingered her n also touched my penis n penis head many times with the same hand that I used to touch her vagina. She then also fingered herself and we also did mutual masturbation.There was her vaginal fluid on my hand or if she had mensuration started there might also be her mensuration blood. In the case of mutual masturbation she had also her vagina fuild and mensuration blood on her hands while she was masturbating me. Or what if she had a cut on vagina n the blood from the cut was on my hand while i touched my penis and also on her hand when she was masturbating me.
Now my question is that can vaginal serection, blood from cut on her vagina or if she had mensuration blood on her or my hand can transmit through the cut I had and can lead to HIV or hepatitis c or other hepatitis as as I have touched my penis using the same hand I fingered her n and as we had mutual masturbation.
I am very much worried abt both hiv and hepatitis c or other hepatitis.

Scared of Possible Transmission

Okay, so, this is probably just going to sound like another kid who messed around without thinking and now he's freaking out because of it. I'm 18 and my girlfriend and I messed around (unprotected anal sex) about 7 or so weeks ago. I ejaculated outside of her. About a month ago, we did it again but this time used protection. I did not ejaculate, although we went at it much longer and her anus remained "open" after I pulled out. I didn't see any blood. Anyhow, about two weeks ago I came down with some pretty nasty flu-like symptoms- low grade fever, sore throat, cough, dry mouth. I decided to research if that could have anything to do with what we did, and lo and behold, the internet decided I had HIV. Soon after, I developed some pretty nasty diarrhea (only in the morning) and vomited once. I visited a walk in clinic, but the doctor said I'm fine without even a test, and that I just gave her a cold.At six weeks post-unprotected sex, despite the doctor's recommendation, I took an Oraquick test. It was negative. A few days later, I had her take one as well- again, negative (I understand they're not conclusive until three months, but I've also read that they're 95% accurate at six weeks). Her and I are both virgins, and neither of us have ever used any intravenous drugs outside of a hospital. She did used to self-harm, but she claims that she was "sterile" about it, and wouldn't use a bloody blade or razor. Now, 7 weeks post-possible exposure, my symptoms have subsided. She got something similar (without any digestive issues... that was probably caused by my anxiety), but her symptoms too subsided. My mind is still freaking out though, and it's annoying her really bad as I'm accusing her of having HIV.
Anyhow, my questions go as follows:
1. As virgins, how remote is the chance that either of us would have HIV?
2. How hard would it be for HIV to spread through self-harm (without another person around)?
3. If both of us came up negative at 6 weeks, is it safe to assume we're both safe?
4. Should I still go get a blood test at three months, or is the Oraquick's negative conclusive that I've never been exposed to HIV before we had sex?
5. Am I needlessly freaking out?
