Welcome to our Forum. You have really already answered your question and now are asking for me to confirm your assessment which I'll be please to do. The activities you describe did not put you at risk for HIV. while you are right that DC has one of the highest HIV rates of any city in the U.S. most people in DC still do not have HIV. Even if your partner did have HIV there is no risk of HIV from kissing (even with gums that bleed) nor from mutual masturbation, even if , as often happens, you did get your partner's genital secretions on yourself.
I see no reason for concern related to this exposure and no need for testing. I hope my comments are helpful to you. EWH
p.s. That your gums bleed when you brush your teeth may suggest that you need to floss more. EWH
Thankyou for the quick answer i hope you continue to effect people lives in the positive way that you and the other DR's are doing.
Hey Dr i know you said there was no risk but at the 30 day mark of the issue i described above i took a HIV mouth swab test and it came back negative. Does this test result mean anything?
Why would testing for something you are not at risk for help in any way? You can test as much as you want- it will not change the outcome. EWH
I know doctor im just so scared and i just keep thinking what if the precum touched the tip of my penis and came in contact with my uretha. Its the guilt and the anxiety that takes my mind wondering. I'm trying to remind myself that you have been at this for 30years and you know exactly where im going with these questions b/c you have heard them a million times like what if the uretha this, a cut here, if they were newly infected and there viral load was high and etc...all these questions keep going through my head and i just keep looking for confirmation. I apologize for the question.
