a strange question of risk
      #4003 - 05/16/00 01:06 AM

hey everyone,
I am a 28 year old male. about 4 weeks ago I had an encounter with a female from an "escort service"

this encounter included protected vaginal sex, and unprotected oral sex (she sucked me)

what worries me is that i had shaved my penis, base, and scrotum, about two hours before. Does any one know if this may increase the risk. The CDC does not seem to think so and classified it as low risk to no risk. The base of my penis was moist after intercourse, but I dont know if it was lubricant from the condom, or vaginal secretions. I am just worried about the small cuts and scrapes you can get from shaving.

I had a test done at 25 days exactly, for insurance reasons, and have heard nothing, (10 days) so i am assuming its negative.

Thanks to anyone who replies, I am worried sick.

I know I know those kinds of concerns. What if, what if. But listen the CDC is the most extremist agency in the world. They are basically the only one that insist on testing at 6 months. So if an extremist and conservative agency like that told you not to worry and that was low risk or no risk at all, would you still be way to concerned? A good idea will be to tell the CDC that if they say it is a low risk/no risk a 3 month test would be enough?

Yes. But do your homework. Ask the CDC that if they told you this is low risk/no risk a 3 month negative test will be enough or if you have to go to the 6 month test. Ok.
