Handjob question

Hi I recently received hand job from another male and I think there was semen on his hand. Thing is I went to the doctor a few days after and was diagnosed with herpes and had a small lesion on my penis, it was scabbed over, but I'm worried that his semen may have contacted it when it was open. I read that hiv dies outside of the body so no risk?

fingering with cut with bandaid.

i had a small 48hour old cut. Not bleeding anymore. Properly covered with band-aid.
I fingered a girl of unknown status with that finger. ( covered with band-aid )
Please advice if i am risk from my cut properly covered with band-aid from the fingering episode.
Also, what if i do not cover this cut with band-aid in future will it be risk involving in fingering.

Thanks for your help.

Do I require testing?


Ok I m only really asking as I m finding conflicting information online.

I m trying to determine if I should get tested or not from a single incident.

I received unprotected oral sex from a woman who's status I m unaware of. The blow job lasted 15 min. 3 days before I had an accident shaving my ball sack and had a couple of minor cuts. Not sure if they would have even still been open wounds or not, they didn't appear to be but thought it was worth mentioning as she did briefly lick my sack once.

I m leaning towards no I probably don't need to get tested after some of what I have read but would like the opinion of someone who is more versed in HIV risk assessment.

Thanks so much ;)

recieved blowjob without protection

Hi, thank you guys for being available to help afraid people like us.
I had a protected blowjob and vaginal sex in sept 2013 in thailand. ( 1st exposure). On january 18th 2014, received unprotected blowjob with ejaculation inside the mouth at a massage center. No cuts or sores on my penis and also no cuts visible inside the girl 's mouth. ( 2nd exposure ). I went ahead and did a hiv 1 and 2 with p24 antigen cmia method after 130 days of 1st exposure and 14 days post 2nd exposure. My gp says blowjob has a very very low risk and said to repeat the test post 25 days of 2nd exposure only for my peace of mind. Since the 2nd exposure, i am experiencing an enlarged tonsils and mild throat congestion. I am taking medication for this but not sure why is this happening. Really concerned as these are the only exposures i had in my 31 yrs of life and am not a sexually active person even with my wife. She is 7 months pregnant. Had sex with her twice after my 1st exposure but before the 2nd one. Can you please put some light on my risks and also do i have a reason to worry.?? Appreciate your prompt guidance.



I am having a hard time coming to terms with something. About two weeks ago I received unprotected felatio from a 20 year old female. I am in a relationship long term with another woman and I am now worried if it could be possible that I could contract HIV. I have asked her via FB and she states that I have nothing to worry about. I do have high anxieties anyway and this may be the cause , however two weeks after this is developed a chest cough and bringing up phlem etc, tired and aching etc. I was wondering am I at risk of HIV or am I over reacting?

Oral sex

Hello over the past 10 months I have been on the receiving end of oral sex unprotected and for the past 3 months I have had a on going grunt style cough like I'm clearing my throat and mild disorted vision and not much of a appetite I was wondering if symptoms of hiv can last this long and how much of a risk I out myself at and if receiving oral sex is something doctors recommend getting tested over

Masturbation confusion?

Ive read that mutual masturbation even if involving each others fluids eg precum to her vagina, vaginal fluids to my penis/urethra, is a no risk situation for HiV transmission......yet other websites that its a massive risk?
What is correct info? Please help

Shall I go for test again?

Hello to you all. Thanks for helping us with great job you have done.
I received unprotected oral sex from a female with unkown health status 60 days ago. Noticed received unprotected oral sex is a negligible risk. Also, for the info., I had from (your friend website: http://smartsexresource.com/ask-us/questions/hi-can-i-get-hiv-receiving-...), they do not even consider it as risk of HIV. However, in order to cease my worries, I still went for test for both hiv and syphilis on my 56 days. Both result I received are neagtive. (Rapid fingerprick test with Alere Determine HIV1/2 for HIV, VDRL/RPR test for Syphilis).

My question is from the above extremely risk I have been exposured, shall I conisder my negative result on 56 days as conclusive? Or shall I go for test again? Thanks.


, pls help to clarify the meaning of my test result

Hi, David. Could you help to clarify the meaning of my tst results? Is it conclusive already? Or I shall do another test?

90days ago, I had unprotected anal sex. Later 20 days ago, I had receivd oral sex. 6 days ago (my 84 days), I have done ELISA test with negative result.Since received oral test is a negligible risk, so should I refer my hiv test 6 days ago (84th day) as conclusive result? Or I shall wait for another 60 days hiv test for received oral sex? Thanks. David.

Can I get HIV ?

I foolishly visited a massage parlor in Toronto . There session was streamy. There was no ( anal,vaginal,oral penetration )
However the outer part of her vagina might have rubbed against the unprotected penis . I also fingered her, but there was no wound/crack on my finger . I did not touch any other part of my body with the finger before I washed it. Can I get HIV. The anxiety is killing me. I will go for a test in 4-5 weeks . Please advice
