HIV scare

Posted , 4 users are following.

about to weeks ago I had protected anal sex with a guy we also had oral. But when I got home a notice I had a whitish looking sore around my lower gum. I don't know if it was there before or after the oral sex. I panicked and went to a clinic, the doctor said it looked it was just some sort of irritation from it being stabbed by something my real fear is that HIV could have gotten through the sore! even though he didn't ejaculate in my mouth. What do you think?

    Protected anal sex is very very low risk. For the the sore on your gum, nothing to worry about. There has never been a case like that. Currently I'm also going through HIV anxiety/scare after my exposure 2 weeks ago. I'm having symptoms and it's freaking me out.

      ok thank you, really appreciate it it'll calm me for a while it's just want to eventually try a gay relationship I'm just scared cause most gays are not faithful and catching HIV is my worst fear.

    Hey there,

    if you used protection then you do not need to be worried at all as far as the condom was not broke.

    The possibility of getting HIV by oral sex is very low, (about 0.04%, and it based on the insert person is HIV+ and also with ejaculation).

    therefore, i do not see any point that you need to be worried.

    move on please...

    Best,

    Hugo
