Oral Sex Scare
      #46398 - 12/03/02 07:08 PM

Last Monday I had an HIV test done anonymously. Well tomorrow I return for the results of my HIV test and I'd be lying if I didn't say I'm scared to death. My exposure window was about 1 year 8 months ago up to about 7 months ago. During my window period I provided oral sex three times to a prostitute and allowed one to provide oral sex on me. Fortunately during all vaginal sex I wore a condom. My fears are increased by the fact that during this period I would see blood in my spit after brushing my teeth. Now 6 months after my last exposure to a questionable partner, I am experiencing achiness in my neck, under my arms and groin area. I've also had very vague headaches. During this period my doctor's nurse practitioner put me on Amoxicillian for an ear infection. When I still didn't feel well my doc changed me to Doxcylcin. The sad part is I'm in a great relationship and I know she was HIV free. I pray she still is. It's hard going through this becasue I can't confide in the person I would normally. I'm really stessing out pretty bad and cannot even function missing 3 of the last 5 days of work.
Thoughts on my risk level would be greatly appreciated.

You have gingivitis. i.e. Inflammation of the gums. See a dentist, who will probrably scale your teeth and the bleeding from the gums will disappear. If you had used condoms ALL the time, you are reasonably safe. Oral sex has not been a means of HIV transmission, so you can safely rule that out. Chances are you are suffering from stress, guilt and HIV compulsive disorder. When you get your negative results, you should stop looking for things wrong with you. HIV compulsive disorder is real. So many of us get it. You are ok.

Yep, the gum bleeding has been resolved. My biggest concern that it increased my possiblity of being infected during this period. I thank you for the words of encouragement. I pray you are right. I know my guilt level is up along with my stress level.

Your risk is extremely low.

Hey there,
Your risk from protected intercourse (if the condoms didn't break) is non-existent and same goes for recieving oral sex. Performing oral sex on a woman is also a very low risk. Try to hang in there, I'm sure you'll be fine. Let us know how everything turns out :o)

I defintley will. I'm at work and trying to keep things together. I don't find out results until this evening at 7:30 ET. Needless to say I'm scared to death!!

I can't beleive the thoughts that are going through my mind especially in light of not feeling well. Of course I'm sure some of that can be stress induced. I don't know what I'll do if my tests are positive.

Thanks............
