Thailand Worry - Please Help Me
      #39667 - 09/09/02 03:00 PM

Hi there. Nine weeks ago, when in holiday in Thailand, I stupidly and drunkenly paid a prostitute to give me an unprotected blow job. I also fingered her briefly. The night before, I french-kissed another girl of dubious employment in a bar.
Now I'm working on the assumption that they both probably had HIV because of the high rate in Thailand.
I know that Dr Kull and Dr Frascino say that the risk through these exposures is essentially nil and theoretical only but I don't buy it.
I have read on asian sites that the Thai strain (subtype e) is spread more efficiently through mucousal routes rather than blood. i have also read that if a man has unprotected sex with an infected thai woman, there is a 10 per cent chance he will become infected. I believe this must be true since men and women both have HIV in equal numbers in Thailand.
It's three weeks till my 12 week test and i am feeling so depressed and almost suicidal. does anyone know anything about HIV in Thailand? Has anyone had a similar experience?
can anyone say anything to reassure me? also, the thai strain apparently turns into AIDS within five years so i will be dead soon if i have it.
thank u

To answer the question. I saw the post from Dr. Kull to your question and that is mostly what I have been able to read on the web. Blow job, very low risk, Kissing very, very low risk, unless you and the other person had surgery in your mouth and there is blood and open cuts inside.
To the other NARROW MINDED BASTARD. If you are not going to help and start scaring people away, get the HELL out of this site. People like you desearve to get a nice kick in the @SS. I would like to know who you are and see if I could help you and educate you a little, believe me, I will be VERY nice with you.

Hi there. I can't say much about your situation. All I can do is offer you some words of encouragement. I to have 2 weeks until my 12 week test. The only difference between us is that i'm a female and gave a bj to my ex bf. Granted it was not in Thiland, but I still know the panic you're going through. So in essence we're in reversal of situations. As far as I know, both of our situations are concidered extreamly low risk. So, that's a plus. I hope the best for you. I am sure you'll be ok. Just keep the faith. Hugs.

I see nothing changed on this board over the last couple of months.
