Question: On 4th november I visited the sex worker, she was helping me for the masturbation, means gave me the handjob. That time I not wore a condom on penis and even I don’t know she has any cut or sore on her hand when she was helping me for the masturbation, I don't know I had any kind of blood contact from her hands on tip of penis and transmitted HIV through that, I don’t have wound or cut on Penis and Pubic part, but I got the feedback one of the doctor, tip of penis is very senective and even normal blood contact could transmitted HIV, How big chances to transmitted HIV in this action, I worried after this incident please help

Brief Answer: Risk for HIV is negligible. Hand job is safe. Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Welcome to XXXXXXX Thanks for posting your query. You are absolutely safe. The information you got from the doctor is baseless. Of course, Glans penis is a very sensitive portion. It is because it has lot of sensory nerve endings and helps for tactile stimulation during sex. That does not mean that any type of blood can transmit HIV. Even if we consider that the sex worker you had contact with, is a HIV positive woman and if she has cut injuries in her hand (unless a fresh bleed), your risk for HIV through the hand job is negligible. The virus cannot live out of body fluid for even few seconds. Especially once get dried HIV cannot be viable. The safest sexual activity is hand job. Dr S.Murugan

Brief Answer: HIV chances remote.Antigen test conclusive 1 month Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Welcome once again. 1.If the sex worker had fresh bleeding also the chances of getting HIV is remote only unless you also had an injury over your penile skin. 2.HIV antigen test (DNA PCR, P24 antigen test, HIV DUO/COMBO test) are suitable and conclusive to rule out HIV one month after the possible risky exposure.

Hello, my problem is that i find extremely difficult to wear a condom. I have measured my penis lenght:18 cm and my girth: 17cm and I think it's pretty much average so, why can't I put on a condom without being so tight it cut my blood flow…Any serious advice would be welcome. Thanks.

Hello, I stayed round my boyfriends 2 nights ago and we thought it was time too have sex he's done it before but it was my first time. He never put a condom on and I'm not sure why? He put his penis in slowly but it was very painful. Eventually we had too stop because it really hurt. I'v been sore the past couple of days and I thought thats because I'v been stretched open a little bit. I'v just come out the shower and there was a tiny tiny bit of blood what is this?

i have these paper cut things around the inside of my lips of my vagina and I've never had unprotected sex,I've only had sex with one guy and I am very safe. I don't keep them but I get them every once in a while. They don't itch or anything just sensative if I'm like rubbing or something..I don't know what it could be so I thought I would ask before I freak out.lol
