Hi there,
Thanks for writing to us.

The percentage of getting infected from a person through masturbation by another person is so negligible, even though she is infected with HIV/AIDS.

The chances will increase if you had any physical contact with her secretion, that too with any micro ulceration on your contacting part, that too less than 0.5percentage.

So do not worry, you will not have any HIV risk.

Hope I helped you.

Let me know if you have further questions.

Dear Doc,

Thanks for your response.

I did not have any cuts or ulceration on any part of my body including the penis. Assuming that she did have some secretions on her hand would i still be at no risk and do I need to get myself tested. It has been 9 months since the exposure.

Further can you share with me your qualifications if it is not a problem.

Thanks

Hi there,

Thanks for writing back.

Well its been nine months already. There is nothing to worry if you do not have any symptoms like

1 sudden loss of weight up to 10% of weight
2 sweating even in nights
3 evening rise of temperature
4 uncontrolled severe diarrhoea, not responding to medications.

In case you are worried, getting a test done would relieve your anxiety. A rise in HIV(human immuno virus ) titre in the serum, can be identified by ELISA kit.
Further, there will be a decrease in CD4 count (a type T helper cell ) which are immediately attacked by HIV antigen. So decrease in CD4 count is an important sign of hiv .

Let me know if you have further query.
Thank you,

Hi there,

Thanks for writing back.

Nothing to worry then, you have good health from your history. Immunosuppressed (HIV infected) patients won't put on weight that easily.

In order to avoid this kind of situation it is advisable to practice safe sex.

Let me know if you had further query.
Thank you.

Take care.
