|You are Wonderful man, now let's get down to bussiness
Sep 9, 2011
First of all I am curious if you ever get tired of answering "am I at risk questions?"
So, I got strep throat yesterday. That didn't mean my dick was broken. I ran into a little cutie at the store and went back to his place. I sucked his cock with a condom on and gave him an unprotected handjob, he came on his stomach (not on me)
So what I am really wondering is if my strep throat could contribute to acquiring HIV. Since my immune system was lowered by being sick. His risk factors are receiving protected anal sex. I am also curious if the virus is more contagious in its early stages I know for a fact that he was tested a year ago.

"You are wonderful man, now let's get down to business." Hmm. That's certainly direct! I can just imagine you on a first date: "Hello, my name is George, now take your pants off." Well, I guess it worked on the "little cutie at the store," eh?
Having strep throat could increase HIV-transmission risk, due to the inflammation of the posterior pharynx mucous membranes, if they came into contact with fresh HIV-tainted fluids (cum or blood). Your HIV-acquisition risk from unprotected receptive oral sex without ejaculation in the mouth with a partner of unknown HIV status remains very low, with or without strep throat. Your general immune system integrity would not be compromised due to strep throat.
Shortly after HIV infection the viral load rises dramatically before the immune system kicks in and starts fighting back. Infectiousness increases whenever the HIV viral load is elevated.
