Reason for concern
      #202018 - 07/30/06 12:44 PM

I feel I need to take an HIV test because I have been a sexually active gay man but I am concerned when I read people type that they have been infected through giving oral sex or stating they only engaged in heavy petting and got hiv. I always use a condom for anal sex but my oral activities have me concerned.

What do you have to lose? If you are POZ [which I doubt given the activities you stated] then you need to know so you can get help. If you are Neg. you then can be even more careful. I guess you know the risk from oral which is low. Hope all comes out well let us know D.J.

Go get your test. Everyone that is sexually active should get tested as part of their routine health care.

As far as how people get infected. People lie.

Hey Dumbass, people dont get infected by telling lies...They get infected by unsafe sex, or sharing needles. If you are gonna post info about HIV here, atleast KNOW what you are talking about. Quit misleading people*

Heavy petting poses no risk for HIV infection. If someone tells you they got infected through heavy petting, they're lying. It's that simple.

Oral sex can pose a risk, but it's a very small one. Still, it does happen. If you're worried, you should get a test. That is always the best response to being concerned about HIV infection.
