STIs

do i have STI??

I recently had my first sex with a callgirl. i used condom to have sex. we didnot have oral sex but we did kiss on several occasions..after 3-4 days , I have pain in my left testicle or scrotum(i dont know) and the left scrotum is swollen... I dont know if its a symptom of STI or something else...I guess this is chlamydia symptom...But I am surprised how i can get infected when i used condom ? And if I do have chlamydia ,,it means I might be prone to HIV as well because having chlamydia means my condom didnot do its job. I hope to get an answer as soon as you can .
Thanks in advance

HIV Risk

Hi all,

I would be grateful for any advice. Last week I had unprotected sex with a woman I met for the first time. I had been drinking and in the heat of the moment I failed to take precautions. The intercourse lasted no longer than 3 minutes, in truth I would be surprised if it lasted longer than one minute, I ejaculated inside her (not worried about pregnancy as she assured me she is on the pill), later (minutes after we had finished) she got her period.

In the past outside of relationships I’ve always been careful so I’ve never worried about HIV or passing it on to someone. It would be entirely hypocritical of me to be judgemental, but as she never asked me to take precautions I presume that she has not asked other partners to do the same. With that in mind I’m very worried that she could have picked up something that I may have caught. Short of her behaviour with me I’ve no reason to think that she may have anything. This week I’ve been so overwhelmed with worry that I felt I had to ask her if she had anything and her recent sexual history. She said that the last two people before me she had unsafe sex with were her partner of 5 years (who she split up with in December) and before that the father of her son. She said that while she has slept with other men since, she has always used protection until me as while she took a lot of risks before having her child (in the UK women are tested for HIV when they are pregnant) he was too important to her to do so again and that she has no STDs.

Additionally, I’m not sure if this is relevant but she also told me she has suffered from Endometriosis since she was 16 (she is now 31) and recently has had a full insertive pelvic exam and smear tests relating to this. I know only the HIV test actually checks for the virus but I presume other STDs are visible during the exam and come up in some of the tests. Could these tests give doctors an inclination if she was suffering from HIV? I mean if for instance her white blood cell count was low etc could that be cause for further query on the doctors part.

I have had friends who have had similar mistakes in the past and picked up things like Herpes and Chlamydia, when I googled for them I found HIV. I have read that it is unlikely for the penetrative partner in vaginal sex to pick up the virus but it’s a chance I’ll never take again if I’m lucky enough to avoid HIV this time. It may sound silly but at the moment I’m really unconcerned about having picked up other STDs from her – HIV seems to put them all into perspective. In terms of symptoms I’ve been so anxious that I’m interpreting everything in a really scary way. I have had a bruise from the gym, a red mark from leaning on my arm and a spot which I have attributed to HIV only for them to disappear within minutes or hours. Since the second day it happened throat has been mildly uncomfortable – particularly when I think about it, and I’m worried it could be a sign of the virus but I am hoping it is stress or even a common cold. I have a spot on the skin between my testicles and penile shaft, I called another STD nurse when I noticed and she told me this was not a symptom of HIV. My temperature does not appear to be fluctuating, although I know many people with HIV do not have symptoms.

I’m from Scotland in the UK and the women I had sex with was not African/Eastern European or a sex worker (not trying to offend anyone, those are just higher risk categories in the UK, along with men who have sex with men from what I have read). Nor is she an intra venus drug user. A sexual health nurse I spoke to on the phone said it was very unlikely that the woman would have HIV and even more unlikely that I’d pick it up…A volunteer on the phones of the Terence Higgins Trust (UK based HIV charity) had already said a similar thing to me but I just thought it would be worthwhile asking here. I

I wondered if more learned people than myself could answer a few questions. Firstly – does the length of contact matter? I understand that HIV can be passed the first time you come into contact with someone or may not be passed after 100 times, but I wasn’t sure if the length of time was a factor. Also, if she was menstruating while we had intercourse would that increase the likelihood of me picking up something? Finally I wondered how long I should wait before I get a test. I’ve heard of 11 day tests but when I spoke to the nurse/THT they suggested it was more common to wait a month for the first (and generally conclusive) test. I've also read that the 11 day RNA test has a high rate of false positives and I wondered if that was why it was generally only used for those who have almost definitely come into contact with HIV.

This has really worried me and I feel like it is the biggest mistake of my life. I feel like I have anxiety issues for worrying this much but I feel like I need to know as much as I can. I've managed to persuade the woman I had sex with to come with me for a Rapid HIV test next week, which if she's telling the truth about no unprotected sex, should reveal if I'm in danger (obviously I'll still go for further tests to be sure).

Thank you very much for taking the time to read this, I’m very grateful for any advice and answers anyone can offer.

PROBABILITY OF HIV VIRUS

HI, I M 24 YRS OLD MAN. 2 DAYS BACK I HAD SEX FOR FIRST TIME IN MY LIFE WITH A MASSAGE PARLOR SEX WORKER(20 YRS OLD). I DID USE CONDOM DURING INTERCOURSE. ALSO, I KISSED THAT GIRL(ON LIPS) AND SHE GAVE ME BLOWJOB. I WAS WEARING CONDOM WHILE SHE WAS GIVING ME BLOWJOB. IT WAS MY FIRST TIME, I WAS A BIT SCARED AND I DID NOT CUM INSIDE HER.

YESTERDAY, I WENT THERE AGAIN AND HAD SEX WITH AN ASIAN GIRL(27 YRS OLD). THIS TIME AGAIN I WORE CONDOM DURING INTERCOURSE BUT THIS TIME INTERCOURSE WENT FOR ABOUT 30 MINUTES IN COMPARISON TO 15 MINUTES DURING FIRST TIME. THE ASIAN GIRL DID NOT GIVE ME BLOWJOB AND DID NOT ALLOW ME TO KISS ON HER LIPS. LIKE FIRST TIME, THIS TIME TOO I DID NOT CUM INSIDE HER.

BUT I M REALLY SCARED OF GETTING HIV+, WHICH CAN SCREW MY WHOLE LIFE. SO FAR I M FEELING TOTALLY NORMAL AND ACTIVE BUT STILL SCARED ABOUT THE POSSIBILITY THAT WHAT IF THOSE 2 SEX WORKERS WERE HIV+.

MY QUESTION IS THAT IN SPITE OF USING CONDOM THROUGHOUT THE SEXUAL INTERCOURSE AND BLOWJOB AND ANAL SEX CAN I STILL GET HIV+ IF THOSE GIRLS WERE HIV+.

PLEASE REPLY TO THIS QUESTION AT EARLIEST...I M REALLY DEPRESSED AND AFRAID.
THANKS IN ADVANCE.

question about transmittted hiv

Hello .. -1- I've tapped into my girlfriend but without penetration of the penis. I just rub my penis out of the vagina for a minute..does transmitted HIV?Because I read so much that the head of the penis is very sensitive and possible vaginal secretions that contain the virus to enter through it.
-2- As she licked my penis and I do not know that there was a small wound on the testicule after shaving Will be a factor for transmission??
I worry and please i wait your answer
thank you

Unprotected Oral Sex

Hi,

On 1st March 2016, I met a hooker in Thailand. I had protected vaginal sex but I was too drunk and went down and had oral vaginal sex. She gave me blow job that too without condom. Its been 9 days now, and my throat is little itchy. No fever or so but itchy throat. I am just too worried for getting HIV infected. Its been 9 days, should I go for RNA test and how accurate will it be. Should I go for other STD tests too.

I touch/partially fingered someone's anus

I fingered a strippers anus (with her consent) but after I pulled out she put my fingers on my mouth and I'm worried I might have HIV

STD testing

Hello, this is not a question about HIV but i was wondering if you could still provide some insight.
I went to a clinic last week to get STD testing and the nurse told me to catch the first stream of urine in the testing-container. I didn't get the very initial bit of urine in and thus i was wondering if the test will still be accurate?
Thank you
