Hi there, This is Dr Basu, Experienced Specialist. I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Not at all.
I am giving you opinion based on several studies on risk of HIv transmission from this type of low risk sexual exposures.
The risk is infinitesimally low.
From such type of exposure only one encounter out of 10000 such encounters results in HIV infection assuming the girl has HIV.
So you can see this does not even warrant a HIV testing as per current recommendations.
The reason being there is no direct blood to blood contact with significant amount ( this is important part significant amount).
And vaginal fluid is less contagious than blood.
So the risk becomes so low.
It was my pleasure to help you today.

so why do you think my testes are tender
Hi, so why do you think I have an intermittent ache/tenderness in my testes
ok, well I am a bit of a worrier I'm afraid (as I live in Dubai and fly for a living) so I went for a full screening yesterday which is 12 days after the exposure. I guess, if hiv were to be present, then it wouldn't show anyway during that time frame
ok, thanks for your help, so just to finish... it would be more common for a blood to blood scenario through anal sex perhaps.
And finally, do most people go through this initial HIV phase whereby they get the triad of symptoms rash, sore throat and fever?
ok thanks for your help I will be giving up the beer in future.
And I should not sit here sweating waiting for the results??
Hi there, something which has just occurred to me is that if I have clamydia then will that not aid the passage of hiv. I have heard that other STD's can be used as a vehicle??
I would expect that the chlamydia was down to the hand contact or the momentary oral (it was literally just 1 second) that she performed on me. So would this be enough to transmit either chlamydia or hiv.
I appear to have some symptoms developing at 14 days but this could be the stress. No rash and my glands are only very minutely inflamed due an earlier cold last week
