User :   Oral Sex question
Doctor :   Hi
Doctor :   Please proceed with your query.
User :   Hi doctor. May i hav your name please
User :   I had an encounter on Friday 21st Jan. I had oral sex with another male. We masturbated each other. We came into contact with each others seminal fluids. He then sucked my penis. I then ejaculated, out of this mouth. We didnot hav sexual intercourse. I dont know his HIV status. I want to know if i could get the HIV virus if he is HIV+
Doctor :   What you meant by coming in contact with each others seminal fluid?
Doctor :   Was it just touching each other?
User :   well we touch each others penis, with our hands. Seminal fluids came on our hands
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Did you have any bare wounds on your hand or body?
User :   no visible wounds
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   HIV virus cannot penetrate a closed skin.
Doctor :   It can enter the skin only if the skin was ruptured.
Doctor :   So based on this fact, HIV infection is not transmitted via a physical contact with body fluids.
Doctor :   Now you reported that you were involved in an oral sex and you were the passive partner.
Doctor :   Again,
Doctor :   though saliva can contain HIV virus, statistics suggest that there has not been a single
Doctor :   report of HIV transmission through saliva.
User :   how good is a HIV PCR test and after how long can it been taken after exposure
Doctor :   So according to your description and based on the knowledge of HIV transmission and statistic reports, I would say, that your chance of being HIV infected is close to zero.
Doctor :   HIV PCR test is a highly sensitive test.
Doctor :   Because of high sensitivity, the test is useful in ruling out the infection.
Doctor :   however it is not used for diagnosing/confirming HIV infection as there can be false positivity.
Doctor :   DIagnosis and confirmation of HIV is done by antibody test (Westernblot technique)
Doctor :   HIV PCR test can be done as early as 10-14days following exposure.
User :   so, if i take the PCR test what will the test result show / confirm
Doctor :   A negative PCR test rules out the HIV infection almost 100%.
Doctor :   So if you are to take the chance,
Doctor :   based on your description,
Doctor :   I can bet that the result will show a negative report and not positive.
Doctor :   and if it were to be positive(which is highly unlikely), you will need confirmation from HIV ELISA or Westernblot test.
Doctor :   Have you followed what I have suggested?
User :   yes doctor i have.
User :   i will take the PCR test after about 10 days
Doctor :   Ok
Doctor :   Getting tested for HIV will be the best way to destress your self.
Doctor :   You can take the test.
User :   I will take the test, but am also nervous at the same time about the result.
Doctor :   You need not worry as the chance of you being positive is very unlikely.
Doctor :   WWW.WWWW.WW

Doctor :   The chance of you being HIV infected/positive is close to zero.
Doctor :   This will be proved by the test.
Doctor :   So you need not worry.
Doctor :   Do you have any other query?
User :   Thanks for the positive information and encouragement doctor.
User :   is the chances of getting HIV more likely if we had intercourse?
Doctor :   Yes.
Doctor :   Anal intercourse has the maximum risk of transmitting HIV infection.
Doctor :   I highly recommend you against such an act in the future.
User :   thats for sure doctor... Never going to do this again. I took a very big risk. i only realised that after we had the encounter.
Doctor :   Practice safe sex and it is better to be involved with a single partner with known HIV infection state.

Doctor :   Thanks for consulting me.
Doctor :   Bye for now.
