unprotected/protected oral insertive sex with shaving nicks and flu like symptom

Question: 

I went to beauty parlor girl 45 days before and while massaging she took my penis in her mouth for one second. Immediately I removed my penis and put condom and she gave me blowjob for 3-4 minutes., but my dick was not erect, so she did handjob. While sucking I saw her saliva coming down towards the base of penis where I did shaved my pubic hair before 3 hrs and their might be some superficial nicks bruises, abrasions, lesions. So what are my risk of

1.unprotected oral sex of one/two second.
2. if she had bleeding gums or sores in her mouth and her saliva mix with her blood enter to the unprotected area of my genital where there is superficial cuts before 3 hrs while sucking.
3 Also, if there is your risk assessment change, if the skin of the genital area including the pubic hair area, base of penis and scrotum which has thin skin and it will also be considered superficial cuts and will seal immediately after shaving cuts and not be direct access to the blood.

After 27 days of exposure I got runny nose for few hrs on first day.

Second day I was feeling chills all day.

Third and fourth day mild sore throat and low grade fever on and off.I was so scared that,I took rest for 2 days with 3 doses of paracetamol and 3 doses of antibiotic for two days fearing ars symptom.

Again after 39 days I got runny noses and chills on first day and mild sore throat and sometimes little temp and now it is 5th day and still sometimes feel mild fever.( I am not taking medicine for second time)

I m very depressed and very fear.

I had no other exposure other than this. had only sex with my wife since 20 yrs. Should I be tested or no test is required and I ignore this flu like symptom as not related to hiv and move on. plz help me I m very anxious and depressed. I am panicking and unable to eat & sleep since this exposure.

Answer: 

Hi there, and thanks a lot for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline for you HIV/AIDS related health information.

It sounds like you are concerned about your risk of HIV after having received oral sex from a masseuse. Let's answer your questions!

Question 1: "unprotected oral sex of one/two second.

  • Receiving Oral Sex is considered a Negligible Risk activity. This means that is can present a potential for HIV transmission because it does involve the exchange of body fluids. However, there has never been a confirmed report.

Question 2: "if she had bleeding gums or sores in her mouth and her saliva mix with her blood enter to the unprotected area of my genital where there is superficial cuts before 3 hrs while sucking.

  • Your situation is still Negligible Risk.

  • HIV needs a human host to survive. Once HIV is outside of the body and exposed to oxygen (saliva with trace amounts of blood on your penis) it can no longer transmit.

  • Saliva has an enzyme that inhibits the transmission of HIV.

  • HIV needs direct access to your bloodstream in order to transmit. There was no direct access to your bloodstream. Superficial cuts, such as any on your genital area from shaving, simply do not provide the conditions necessary for transmission to occur. For superficial cuts to potential provide direct access to the bloodstream, they would have to be actively bleeding and in need of stitches or surgery to repair. From what I understand, this was not the case in your situation.

Question 3: "Also, if there is your risk assessment change, if the skin of the genital area including the pubic hair area, base of penis and scrotum which has thin skin and it will also be considered superficial cuts and will seal immediately after shaving cuts and not be direct access to the blood.

  • The risk assessment does not change. The situation that you have described is considered * Negligible Risk**.

HIV presents itself differently in different people, therefore we cannot comment on the symptoms that you have been experiencing. I would, however, recommend that you contact your health care provider to discuss your symptoms and develop a treatment plan. Symptoms can be indicative of other viral infections.

Here at AIDS Vancouver we encourage everyone to make HIV testing a part of their regular health care maintenance routine. The only way to know your status is to be tested. If you feel that even after the information provided above, an HIV test would give you peace of mind, you can ask your health care provider for an HIV test.
