I was stupid enough to have an encounter with a lactating masseuse a week ago and am pretty sure she got breast milk on my penis. to make matters worse I had a small cut on my penis as well. I have seen dr Handsfords comments on breast milk but am still a bit concerned, particularly as I now have a sore throat . on other sites it says it can take at least two weeks to develop hiv symptoms so am I worrying about nothing
thanks Teak, I dont want to sound a nag but how are we so sure that breast milk getting on the penis is no risk. cant infected milk getting down the urethra be a risk as it may get into your blood stream
HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions, therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.
Sorry Teak to sound patronising but how do you know so much about the risk of breast mil given that other sites say that hiv still exists in the milk even when its left to stand in a bottle. I only ask as I am terrified about infecting my wife and am concerned about the fact I have suddenly got a very sore throat a week after the encounter. Surely if the breast milk got on the cut on my penis there is a chance of contracting the virus or am am I just trying to convince myself for no reason
Teak I appreciate your respomses but in the past two days I havegotten a very severe sore throat and intermittent pains across my body. despite your assurances I am convincing myself that I have hiv. how do I stop this
