HIV Transmission and Education >> Am I Infected?


Thrush or not?
      04/14/00 07:54 PM

Hi, hope someone can help. I have always practised safer sex, included in this is oral sex without taking any semen in my mouth etc., and so I have always thought that I was safe from catching HIV. However, about 3 months ago i had a cold (so did my flat mate) and our tongues were coated in a green coat. Since then the stuff has turned whitish and is concentrated at the back and I can never totally brush it off. It doesnt hurt or cause a sore throat or bleed when I brush it but it has been worrying me in case I am infected.

I went to the doctors and she ummed a bit and said it is probably thrush and prescribed some Nystax pastilles. I have taken these and they havent done anything to remove the white stuff.

Could someone please help me, have I been unsafe even when I thought I was being safe in sex? Is this Thrush that the tablets havent got rid of or just coated tongue etc?

One last question. Can entering your penis into someone (anally) for a split second be enough to contract HIV?

Thanks for any help you can offer.....Rob
