I am a gay 19 year old male. About 2 months ago I messed around with someone I met offline. After masturbation and frottage for awhile, he asks me if he puts on a condom, if we could have sex. I agree. He tries to penetrate me. For about 30 seconds there was a lot of pressure but, since I had been penetrated previously and the feeling was not the same, I didnt think he penetrated me. After attempting to penetrate me, I decided that I just wasnt comfortable with the situation. But upon turning around i realized that he wasnt wearing a condom. I was not too worried about it because I didn't think penetration has occured and he assured me he was negative. I decided to get a 6 week test to ease my mind, this was negative. But recently I have noticed I have been having alot of rectum discomfort and moisture in that area. I think that I might have an std down there. I am really scared because I know that if I got ghonorea or chlamydia, that penentration most likely did occur and I would be at the highest risk for hiv. I've also realized that the guy I was with is extremely promiscuous. Is their anyway that I could have contracted some kind of std without penetration? Do you think that this was indeed a very high risk for hiv? Someone please shed light on my situation. Thanks.
any hiv testing questions should be asked on the hiv forum. hiv wasn't a real risk from this encounter.
hpv and herpes are your more likely risks and even those risks are small. your symptoms don't sound std related. be seen monday and get a proper exam to find out what is going on. more likely a yeast issue than anything else.
I am relieved to hear that I was not at too much of a risk. I have made a doctors appointment just to be safe. I had been thinking that it very well could be a yeast infection! Hopefully that is all it is. Thank you for taking the time to answer my questions.
