Please help me
Aug 1, 2012
I'm sorry to be a bother but im really scared here.I went to a strip club a few days ago and sucked on one the girls breast/nipples for a few seconds. i remember having a salty, sweaty like taste in my mouth afterwards so i dont kno if that was breastmilk or just sweat. Now Im concerned that I may have been infected. since the incident i have been freaking out and now im having headaches etc. Am i at any risk for HIV and is there any way to tell or kno before the 3 month mark? I had asked before but as time goes on i am beginning to feel worse. Please help me out here
Response from Mr. Glenn
Thanks for your question,
There is no risk from what you're talking about. Thing to think about is that you only touched her for a few seconds! HIV transmission doesn't happen in a few seconds in cases like this. Besides, the mouth is not a good way for HIV to get in the body.
Now, you mentioned you had asked before.. It sounds like getting your answer hasn't helped you put this out of your mind. It's important to note, if you're having trouble managing your feelings of worry (even when you've been told there's no risk) then it's time to talk to someone who can help with your feelings, like a mental health professional.
Hope this helps!
