Risks and Prophylaxis from Kissing and Masturbation
Hi, 40 year old heterosexual male. A week ago, I made the stupid mistake of KISSING and letting a female Stripper / CSW while abroad in Costa Rica to MASTURBATE me (she used some of her saliva / drool) as lubrication. No other contact.
I would like to understand what are the possible risks involved from my stupid actions, which I assumed at the moment to be safe.
HSV-2 is not an issue, since I already have it from many years ago and it is hardly an issue (very minor/twice a year outbreak).
From my understanding HIV is not really a risk, but what about Syphilis? I don't know how common or not it is in Costa Rica and I understand it is rare for it to spread through kissing, but don't want to become the outlier statistic.
I havent had any symptomps, but would like to know if there is any prophylactic treatment I can take? I just want to be able to sleep, rest and move ahead with my life and wife, which I fear to death of infecting. I understand that a test would take 6 weeks to be useful, so would rather do something preventive / prophylactic treatment.
sorry but this is not zero risk.i do my research about it because i had a simillar accident and i find a post by dr.Hook who clearly says that when genital secretions or saliva are present in masturbation it's not zero risk.
From what I read, the odds are only theoretically / a very long shot. It's been a week and I haven't had any discomfort on the tip of my penis, no discharge no irritation, so eventhough Chlamydia / Gonorrhea can take a bit longer to manifest, I have a hard time believing that after being very self aware and checking every minute you wont feel a thing for a week and then have a full blown infection the next.
I also don't think you will find actual cases of people with HIV infection due to Saliva.
I know how hard it is to think of the risks, but If the Doctors on this site have been on this business for 30+ years and have not seen cases, the odds of it happening are not very good.
As I mentioned, It's tough to be rational about one's own wellbeing, but Im trying my best...
Let's just say you'd have more chance of buying a single lottery ticket once in your life and winning the jackpot first time than getting any STD from an exposure like this. This was 99.9% risk free don't worry.
