I am extremely anxious and nervous over a possible exposure I may have had to an HIV infection. About 6 weeks ago, I had visited a massage parlor, where the female therapist offered other services. She gave me a hand job (without any condom on) and we also French kissed once (for about 15-20 seconds).
While I did not notice any cuts on her hand or felt any similar lesions/ cuts in her mouth while kissing her, I have no real way of knowing for sure whether I was exposed to her blood or not. As far as my body was concerned, I did not have any cuts on my penis, but I did have a sore on the inside of my upper lip and may have had some abrasions on my tongue which I often have just after brushing my teeth. But I don’t think I was visibly bleeding anywhere in my mouth.
All this assuming that the therapist was HIV positive, which again I have no way of knowing….it’s just a fear assuming that she performs such actions, she may be at a high probability of having this condition.
I am so worked up on the possibility of having acquired an infection that it is affecting my daily routine and behavior. I would like your assessment as to whether my fears are real and what would be the probability of me having acquired an HIV infection from this incident.
I will be eagerly awaiting your response. Thank you.
Thank you for your post and welcome to our forum.
The situation that you describe would have not posed any risk of HIV or any other STD at all whatsoever. Kissing and hand jobs are safe. No need to test; no need to worry.
