Response from Mr. Glenn

Thanks for your question,

Sounds like this has been making you worry a lot lately, but it doesn't sound like you had much of a chance to get HIV. Your test at 28 days gave you a good idea of your status.

Instead, let's look at your risk. Since you used a condom to have sex in her vagina, there's no risk there. Since you didn't actually penetrate her in the anus, there's no risk there. Since her vaginal just touched your penis head but likely didn't get inside your penis (a lot of fluid would need to get in there), there's no risk there. Since you had unprotected oral sex, there's very little risk there.

It's important to remember that sex in the anus is very risky to get HIV, so always use a condom.

You don't have very much risk at all. You can get tested at 3 months to make sure, but the odds are that you're negative.

Your doctor is probably right that it would be good for you to talk to a counselor or psychologist to help you work out your stress. Maybe talking this out with a good friend would help too.

Hope this helps!

Erik
