Do you have any other medical condition ?
What about your partner's sexual health , if you know that ?
Thank you very much for your input.
If one uses latex or polyurethane condom , the chances of HIV transmission is nil because , such a material totally blocks the transmission of viruses.Regarding , oral sex, the person giving the "blow job' i.e. the receiver has more chances of acquiring HIV , especially from the preejaculate (cum) and if she/he has oral sores , cuts in the mouth etc.For the person who is doing the insertive job has minimal HIV transmission from merely saliva but can acquire HIV if she/he has blood in the mouth etc.The same is true if he has cuts , sores on the penis which come in contact with bleeding gums etc.
Other STD's like gonorrhea, chlamydia, and non-gonococcal urethritis (NGU). These usually can be treated easily with antibiotics. You may also get syphilis (which usually can be treated easily with antibiotics (if identified early enough) and herpes which can be cured by using antibiotics.The same is true for HPV .However if dental dams or condoms are used for oral sex , the chances of transmission are negligible.If you feel uncomfortable , can get screened out for STD's during a week's time when when the results might be positive if at all they are there.The sooner the STD's are caught the more the chances they will be treated.
Hope i have answered your question.
Thank you very much for your inquiry.
Actually , the estimation of risk of transmission through oral route is relative to anal and vaginal sex.Therefore , it is based upon two types 1.theoretical 2.documented.Theoretical means it is possible and documented means if any event has been recoreded with such an occurrence.Actually the oral cavity and the mucous membrane of the mouth are very resistant to viruses including HIV and HIV cant be transmitted either way to the ACTIVE or Receptive partner unless there is cut, abrasion etc. in the mouth or on the penis.During different studies it is estimated that transmission of HIV on either side is less than 2.8% through oral route.This means that the chances of getting such infection is negligible, though possible through oral route.It is not about the frequency , but rather on the viral load , abrasions and cuts on either side which decides the transmission.For you i will suggest to screen yourself out after 10 days for HIV , to remove your suspicion.Generally women ( receptive ) are more prone to contact HIV than men( active)Good luck.
Hello, I'm sorry but I disagree with the expert's answer. It is incorrect advice to tell a person to get an HIV test within 10 days of exposure. Most people will take 2-8 weeks to develop antibodies against HIV, although some people will take up to 3 months to develop antibodies. The antibodies of HIV are what is tested for in an HIV screening test. For this reason, it is recommended that a person get an HIV test 3 months after the potential exposure.
In terms of pregnancy, I know you said a 1-2% chance....Does a spermacidal comdom reduce this? Is age a factor? She is 39. Can a woman be pregnant and still get her period?
Ok. Please help. I am now in full freakout. I have been closely examining myself recently and I noticed some extremely tiny, almost microscopic bumps just under the head of my penis on one side and a few on the shaft. They feel like the tiniest grain of sand and are almost invisible. The same color of my skin or slightly lighter. Could this be a sign of an STD???? Im ready to jump off a cliff............
