HIV Risk & Testing

Oct 30, 2012

Hi all, appreciate your advise please.

Risk = Unprotected hand job at a massage parlor (I have HSV but no sores in penis during the exposure)

I am really feeling very worried about this incident and the only way to console myself is to get tested. So my question is when should I get tested? 6 weeks or 12 weeks?

Looking forward to hear from anyone of you soon please. Thank you.

Response from Mr. Glenn

There is absolutely no risk for HIV from this. No way to get in your body. No fluid to transmit it to you.

Hope this helps!


Can I get HIV or hepatitis from this?
