Does withdraw provide any protection?
      #193749 - 05/31/06 10:13 AM

I am a female and had unprotected sex with someone. I know him quite well, and his last test did show he was HIV negative.....that was in Feb/March.

When we did have sex, he pulled out. Odds are he's negative anyway, but if he was to be positive, would withdraw lessen the chances of contracting HIV??

And yes...I will be getting tested (before anyone tells me "test at 13 weeks" or whatever)....Im just asking this now to maybe calm my fears till then.

Not only does withdrawal not protect you from HIV, it also doesn't protect you from pregnancy or other STDs. It's not an effective way to have safer sex.

Nope..you can still transmit!
Let us know how everything turns out, the good thing is he knows his status...but what he did between Feb and now is the question?? Stay calm and come here, everyone here is awesome, they will give you peace of mind.
Love to you..

Withdrawls DO NOT PROTECT YOU of ANYTHING! Yes your chances are very on your favor because he seems to know his status however it depends when it did his test and what he did from March until now. In any case semen has a lot more HIV particles than pre-cum, however you still can get infected. I hate to say it but, the ONLY way is to TEST after 3 months.

so a six week test would mean NOTHING?? I find that hard to believe.

My immune system is not compromised in any way. And from what I've read, it its only those type that take 3 months to seroconvert.

Again, I will be testing. But to be honest, I have yet to know of, or even read about someone who took longer than 6 weeks to seroconvert.(with the newer tests and who weren't suffering from a compromised immune system).....

Withdrawl will lessen the chance of infection, however, is a dangerous game to play.

You have a phenomenal chance of a negative test at 13 weeks. A negative test at 6 weeks is highly likely not to change by 13 weeks. And you are correct, 13 weeks is the outer lier for those slowest to convert.

Didn't know you tested at 6 weeks...if so, that is a very good sign.

hi

regards from india

I doubt withdrawal would lay any significant impression on HIV transmission, however if there was no ejaculation the risk is drastically reduced. HIVt esting is warrented and a 12 week test should suffice. I would also advice you to test for other STD's too. Use condoms in future!

Goodluck

Take Care

God Bless you

Stay Well

Love Ravi

the receptive partner is always at more risk. Use condoms from now on. testing -ve at 6 weeks is extremely good sign, however a 13 week test is considered conclusive........ No glove, no Love
