Thank you for all of these useful information in regards of STDs. I have a query that is eating me alive. I am hypochondriac, so you can imagine how stressful it is. I had one night stand with a man with unknown status. We were kissing passionately for about 20-30 seconds, and I noticed that he had bleeding gums. We stopped the kissing and I spit on the tissue to check if I have it as well, luckily I did not have it at that very moment. Right after that I examine my mouth and gums and I noticed that my gums started to bleed as well - not excessive amount, just around one teeth, that I rinsed and bleeding disappeared right away. We did not kiss any more, however I received rim job after that (at the time of rimming, his gums were not bleeding any more). I would really appreciate If you can tell how big this risk of transmission is. Thank you a lot for your time and effort to help us.
Hello, I have done something I never thought I would do and gave oral sex to another gentleman. He swears he is clean and has nothing that could have been transmitted to me, but this is sort of his lifestyle, not mine ever again. Too worrisome to let it lay. I am married, shame on me I know. My wife is out of town and comes back this weekend. I gave him oral sex for about 3-5 minutes it seemed and then freaked out and left. He never ejaculated. Now I am killing myself inside with guilt that I could have gotten the HIV virus and don't want to give it to my wife. Words of wisdom and advise?
hello ..im jay from india..i received blowjob(without condom) for 15min from unknown women..kissing around 10mins..i didnt participate other than this...i dnt have any cuts or sores on my penis ..i didnt notice she is having cuts or sores in her mouth..im i hiv free im feeling stressed..testing is needed or not...
What is the risk of transmission for the following scenarios:
1.) Get root canal on upper back tooth (next to the wisdom tooth). Dentist comments that the gums have taken a beating and to not eat on that side for a while. When a tissue is pressed against the tooth, a little blood stain is there. Later that evening, kissed someone with unknown status. No deep kissing, but not completely closed mouth either. The regular type kissing where the mouth opens a little bit.
2.) Receive oral sex (male receiving oral from female). Later that night, notice small reddish stain on underwear (which was near the oral sex) about the size of a small paperclip, but can't tell if it's blood or lipstick/makeup.
3.) Receive oral sex. Don't notice blood, but the oral sex is very deep and done passionately.
4.) Have two big canker sores inside mouth under the tongue. Deep kiss with someone with lots of tongue involved. Usually canker sores may be consider negligible risk, but what if they are two bigger ones?
I am a male and I had a sexual encounter with a female sex worker 14 weeks ago. We showered together and touched each other's genitals. After shower, I fingered her and played with her nipples and sucked on her nipples. Then she sucked on my penis with a condom on and I came inside the condom. I fingered her some more and touched her breast and tongue kissed her. I then masturbated myself without a condom and came again. That was the end of it. During the 12th week after exposure, I caught a flu. I had nasal congestion and sore throat and had chills for one night. I measured my temperature and I was not considered having a fever. The flu cured after a week or so. My questions are: 1) Can I get HIV from fingering her then touching her nipples with my hands and sucking on the nipples afterwards? 2) Can I get HIV from receiving oral sex with a condom on? 3) Can I get HIV from deep tongue kissing? 4) Internet research tells me normally HIV early symptoms show up 2-6 weeks after exposure. In my case, I experienced a flu 12 weeks after exposure. Is it even possible that this flu is related to HIV? 5) Do you think I should get tested?
i had a protected vaginal sex with a sex worker but i licked her vagina without any protection or barrier and i tested for HIV with 4th generation cmia ag/ab test after 7 weeks and it came back negative. so is this test considered conclusive after 7 weeks of exposure because I'm to much worried
Yesterday, I received oral sex from my gay friend (with HIV positive status), during that I released sperm on his mouth. He has been taking ARV drugs and HIV is below detection threshold. So Is there any HIV risk for me from this action? Will I need a test for this particular situation?
Thanks in advanced for your support!

I am feeling very anxious while intoxicated I got a blowjob from a sex worker. She first gave my back a massage with coconut oil (could the oil be contaminated?) I had small scratches on my back the next day, didn't look like the skin had broke though. After that she gave me a blow job but first put on a condom using her mouth. A trick I have seen before. My questions are below:
- Could I get infected from the massage and scratches? Could the oil if mixed with blood for some reason infect me through my back, through an open scratch or cut?
- When she put the condom on me with her mouth, what if her mouth brushed my penis beforehand? I had the condom on until I released. She was also slobbering quite a bit and I think I felt saliva at the base of my penis, didn't look like blood was in it but could of been trace amounts.
-Last thing I remember was also touching her boobs with my hand. Any risk there? What if she was lactating and I didn't remember. I wasn't black out but I am just trying to cover my bases.
Thank you for helping put my mind at ease. I hate doing these things and the guilt/worry makes it not worth it.
so a few days ago, i hooked up with this one guy. I did give him oral but only had a tiny bit of precum but I cant be sure. Also we did deep throat kiss but im not aware of any sores in my mouth. Also I accidentally licked a pimple he had on his chest. He gave me oral several times. but mainly was a lot of kissing/licking. what is my risk assessment for this? Do you think I need to take an HIV test for it? I'd be very grateful for for any information u have
Hello, Thanks for this awesome service.
I have a quick question regarding my exposure yesterday (the day before this question is being sent).
I met with a guy who said he is married and disease free. we decided to hang out at my place, we had long session of deep kissing and mild lip biting and he ended with giving me a blow job. but today i found out from him that he didn't get tested over a year. So this bothers me a lot now. i didn't notice any bleeding or sores. i didn't had any sores that i remember. but i always thought kissing was safe sex activity until i see some discrepancies now. this case is m4m
please advice if i need to get tested, and when should i get tested. i was going to get tested after 28 days with a blood draw. do you think it will be accurate by that time. thx
