HI Doctor,

Actually I had a sex with prostitute in Geylang (Singapore). During the beginning she gave me blow--job for few secs only just to make my penis erect and when she removed penis from mouth, there was no much saliva on my penis even there is no cut or other such things on my penis skin. Then she put Condom on me and all the rest intercourse was with a condom only (protected sex) even we did not have any mouth touch each other (no kiss at all) . Problem is I am not sure about her HIV status. Please response I am very scared.

Part 2:

After intercourse I removed the condom with my hand then touch my naked penis with same hands. After that washed my penis with (Water) shower same hands then clean with a towel. And the stupid thing is tied the condom filled with sperm and put it into my jean pocket. the whole night condom was in my pocket , is there any worry about that ? . I know I am asking stupid questions but this was my first time . Please respond.

Part 3 :
I just wanted to add one more point here is after two weeks i have returned back to my native. here i got cold and throat infection & and i am also taking medicines given by doc. But this throat infection is continues from more than 10days , however is it not that much painful now but still not completely cured yet (No Fever only throat pain). Is this something which i need to worry ? . please respond i am facing the worst part of my life

Thanks,
Andy

Hi there,

Thank you for choosing the AIDS Vancouver Helpline as your source of information.

First, I would like to point out that we here at the AIDS Vancouver Helpline are not doctors. We are highly trained and experienced with HIV/AIDS and we all have varying academic backgrounds.

As far as your inquiring about receiving oral sex goes; receiving oral sex puts you at a negligible risk of acquiring HIV. This means that potentially HIV transmission can occur, however there has never been a confirmed report of HIV transmission occurring this way. Furthermore, the saliva in the human mouth is not a body fluid that transmits HIV. In fact, it inhibits HIV!
Protected vaginal intercourse puts you at a low risk; it is one of the best measures to protect yourself and I'm glad to hear that you're taking the necessary steps to do so.

Putting the condom does not put you at risk. It is important to know as to how HIV transmission occurs; for a risk to exist, specific HIV positive fluids (vaginal/anal fluids, blood, semen) must come into direct contact with the blood stream of an HIV negative person. The condom, regardless of its likelihood of putting you at risk does not have direct access to your blood stream. You are at not risk.

The symptoms you're describing are likely not to be related to HIV at all. There are no clinical symptoms associated with HIV. This means that no consistent physical symptoms have been observed among people with HIV. With that being said, some infected individuals do experience a strong flu-like illness 2-3 weeks post exposure, and this last for about 8-10 days. However, some infected individuals experience no symptoms at all.

Even though you were not involved in any high risk activities, the best way to know your status is to get tested. Knowing your status will help with the anxiety you're having.

We also suggest that you reach out to a healthcare practitioner in your area. That way you can discuss your situation and concerns with him/her if need be.

In health,

Moe-AIDS Vancouver Helpline Volunteer
