Hello everyone, I posted my question in the HIV prevention forum, and was told that I never had an HIV risk. I dont think that it was correct information. I asked further and was completely dismissed and directed here by Teak. Is he right? Here was my question,
I have been very depressed lately as I fear I may have contracted HIV in a very uncommon way. I hung out one time with a boy who I met at college. I just graduated high school. Anyway, we were making out, and all the sudden he put my hand down his pants onto his penis. I felt a bit of moisture I think, who knows if it was pre*** or ***, I dont even know. However, I didnt want to do anything with him like that so I pulled away and told him to slow down. That was the end of that. Six days later I had swollen lymph nodes in my armpit that were tender to the touch (I never get them there normally). Now about a month and a half later all the lymph nodes in my groin feel like theyre little balls under my skin, and I dont think that's normal. They do not hurt though. Could I really have gotten HIV from only touching his penis? Did I get it by rubbing my eye afterwards or something like that?? This is terrible. Im not promiscuous at all :(
I read that semen in contact with the eye poses a risk. I dont understand how Teak could dismiss it as no risk at all? What are your thoughts? Responses are greatly appreciated (:
