well, i had some urethitis or however u say it/spell it and i had some type of discharge. it's too early for me to test for HIV but like i said in my other posts, i always use condoms for anal sex (i'm insertive partner) and unprotected oral. well, they took a swab and did a culture or whatever they do and i'm negative for gonnorhea and chlamydia. but he still gave me an antibiotic cuz he said it could be a different type of infection. so i feel great that i don't have one of those std's, but then part of me starts to worry--well, if it's not gonnorhea nor chlamydia could the cause of my problems be HIV. but if i didn't get those std's, the odds are in my favor that i didn't get hiv, either. so, i feel happy. won't be 100% happy until i can test for HIV (it's been about 5 weeks since last sex act) but at least this is encouraging...i think.

regards from india

I am happy you use condoms religiously and surely consistent use of condoms is effective in stopping transmission of HIV and other STD's.Evaluation of HIV status based on HIV is incorrect, only a HIV test can give the correct picture.

Merely getting a STD does not mean that you are HIV infected, however i would like to point out that MOST STD's are curable.


Take Care

God Bless you

Stay Well

Love Ravi

You can get bacterial infections from oral sex. That is just a fact of life. Your symptoms are in no way indicative of HIV infection.

As I am sure you know, the risk of HIV from being given oral sex is nil. The risk of giving it (to a man) is something in between nil and very, very low.

So, all in all, I think you will be fine.

All the best.
