Hello,

I had a sexual encounter with a man and received oral sex and a handjob. Afterwards, he tried to insert my penis into his anus, but I don't think there was any penetration (there was no condom on). When I got home, my penis hurt really bad and a day after some purple marks showed up. I guess the handjob was a little rough and could have caused some bruising, but I don't know for sure. What is my risk for HIV or an STD from this encounter?

Hello and thanks for reaching out to the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.

It seems you are concerned about contracting HIV after unprotected oral and anal sex. We are glad to provide some information.

Receiving oral sex is regarded as a Negligible Risk activity. This means that although there is an exchange of body fluids there has never been confirmed reports of HIV transmission from this activity.

Engaging in unprotected anal sex is regarded as a High Risk activity as HIV transmission has been repeatedly associated with this activity. You will need to be tested in order to determine whether you have contracted HIV from this exposure. At AIDS Vancouver we encourage people to use HIV testing as a regular health maintenance routine. This involves getting tested once or twice a year. This will give you peace of mind and also an opportunity for early intervention if it is required.

The AIDS Vancouver Helpline Online forum has postings that are related to your question that you can read for additional information. If you have any further questions feel free to contact us again.

Thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Helpline.

In health
