... Please read my first post as maybe I didn't describe the situation well. My penis wasn't kissed, I was the person who performed the fellatio. So maybe that changes you risk assessment and I did in fact put myself at risk. (11 replies)

... Hello guys I thought i'd share some information with you.
Most HIV tests are antibody tests that measure the antibodies your body makes against HIV. It can take some time for the immune system to produce enough antibodies for the antibody test to detect, and this time period can vary from person to person. This time period is commonly referred to as the “window period.”... (6 replies)
... You're sort of right, there have been cases of oral transmission, but there is either blood or semen involved, and in this case, there was neither. Transmission in this way is rare, and unless this person has cuts on the inside of their mouth, and blood/semen is present, there isn't anyway for transmission to occur. Even when semen and or blood is present, transmission is very... (8 replies)
... Hi . I had unprotected oral sex from an unknown female in West Africa (sounds crazy and believe me my experience since then will confirm it).
After 10 days I developed what was like herpes on the left side of my torso, I got this checked out by a western doctor and they simply said it was due to stress. I had since my encounter being researching the internet in HIV and the... (8 replies)
... If I were in your position, I probably wouldn't even get tested. HIV just really isn't spread in such a manner. Now, I highly recommend that you DO get tested, only because that's the only way to calm your nerves about this. Modern day tests are incredibly accurate. The CDC now says its perfectly fine for you to go get tested just weeks after your potential exposure. A month... (8 replies)
... I talked to the man this afternoon and he said that he was tested 2 months ago and that it was negative. He says that he has had only 1 partner for intercourse and that it was protected. I think that I can trust him, seeing as how he is the little brother of my big sister's best friend. I am still just a little nervous, but less than before. It is still too early to test...

... The risk from oral sex is always very low, I can't give you a statistic, but according to the CDC, it is very low. If no ejaculation occured as you said, then there's really no way transmission could've occured. Typically, when one is initially infected with HIV, there is a brief period of time where white blood cell count is very low. This is when the virus is rapidly... (8 replies)

... I highly doubt symptoms of ARS would go away because of antibiotics. ARS symptoms appear 2-4 weeks after initial infection, and even then, they don't occur in everyone.
Of course, trying to diagnose HIV based on symptoms does not work. I answer this question it seems like once a day. The symptoms of initial HIV infection are so vague and broad and sporadic that really,... (8 replies)
... About 25 days ago I performed unprotected sex on a man of unknown HIV status. There was no ejaculation in my mouth. I am concerned about my risk of contracting HIV. For about a week and a half before the incident I was having really bad sinus issues (stuffed-up and a runny nose as well), then the next day after the unprotected incident, I had swolen lymph nodes in my neck. A... (8 replies)

... The cases that the CDC refer to are self-reported and not confirmed, and mostly have been reported in MSM who participated in _receptive_ fellatio (the original poster had insertive fellatio). They are based on individual accounts of past risk behaviors, which are not reliable. People lie about their exposures for a number of reasons, don't remember exposures, or disregard... (8 replies)
