HIV from oral?

Hi i had sex with 5 male escorts (ME) in the past 6 weeks.

ME1- kissing, oral with pre *** (but stopped when i noticed it), no anal
ME2- no kissing, protected anal (im top), protected oral
ME3- no kissing, no anal, no oral, just masturbation
ME4- kissing, unprotected oral for 10 seconds, no anal
ME5- kissing, no anal, protected oral

What are the chances of me getting HIV? 5 days after the last one, I had sore throat. I am so worried and paranoid right now. And I understand after 3 months is the best time for testing. Pls help.

Re: HIV from oral?

you had protected sex and oral sex
neither poses a risk to you.
a blood test is the best quickest accurate way to get tested for hiv
results after 15 days pretty much tell the story.
good luck

Re: HIV from oral?

So what do you think the result will most likely be? Negative? I am so paranoid and couldn't sleep at night. I can't imagine myself having sleepless nights for the next 3 months. I am particularly worried about the low risk oral sex poses (still a risk). Thanks for ur help.

Re: HIV from oral?

Oral sex is NO risk not low risk- there are no proven infections through oral sex. You never had an exposure therefore you are worrying over nothing. Forget about this and move on with your life.

Even if he ejaculated in your mouth- NO RISK.

Re: HIV from oral?

One more thing that worries me is that I'm having sore throat, dry cough and yellow phlegm right now, looks like flu symptoms. Makes me more paranoid.

Re: HIV from oral?

If you had any risk at all, the regulars here- the ones that have already responded- would tell you so. Even if you had every text book symptom for ARS (acute HIV infection) it still would not matter. They are too common and non specific to diagnose HIV. I have seen one very well known HIV expert- Edwark Hook- post that much less than 1% of people specifically seeking treatment for HIV symptoms actualy have it.

But all of that is meaningless for your situation. You have ZERO chance of HIV from this buddy. Please save yourself the anxiety and believe us. If you need a test to confirm what we say, by all means go for it. But it will be a negative test .

Re: HIV from oral?

I have one last question. What is the possibility of me getting HIV if the guy tried to put his penis in my *** with a condom on and the ky jelly which he put in my anal area touched my fissure? I didnt let him continue but Im worried about the lubricant or possibly his finger touching my anal fissure. Pls reply thanks

Re: HIV from oral?

Zero risk from what you describe, which is pretty much frottage. It takes unprotected penetration to transmit HIV, and especially ejaculation with penetrative sex.

Please stop trying to think of scenarios, you will run yourself bat crap crazy doing that. You DO NOT have HIV.

Re: HIV from oral?

Sorry im just so intrigued with this post from smiteler that I came across with re: oral sex and hiv. Were you told that the odds were low and the risk were not great but you still got the hiv from oral? Please clarify im getting more paranoid.

"all i will say is any risk at all is taking a chance.
hiv can be a mistake you can never fix.
i trusted someone and took a risk and lost.
i was told my risk wasn't great,and the odds were low,but since i lost
does it even matter what the chances were?
nope not at all.
don't take chances with your health that you can't fix.
all you need to be is that one in a thousand or whatever number you read.
use protection at all times unless you and your partner know thier status by testing only...
my insight might not be the best, but it's the safest for sure..."

Re: HIV from oral?

You're reading things between the lines that aren't there. Smiteler was infected through vaginal sex, not oral sex.

You need to STOP browsing through forums and other websites about HIV. You're only going to continue to fuel your anxiety that way. Anxiety makes your brain give a sinister interpretation to statements that you read online, seize on ambiguity, and otherwise feed your reptilian brain. Find another hobby!
