HIV Risk of Transmission (Penile Thrush)


I'm 23 and live in Thailand and 20 days ago when drunk I paid for intercourse with a prostitute, this was the first time I have ever done something like that. The intercourse was protected, I kept going soft but I made sure that I could always see the base of the condom. The condom came off on exit however I am almost certain my penis didn't come into contact with any vaginal fluids. There were no cuts or sores on my penis.

After which I received oral sex for 5 or so minutes until ejaculation. The oral sex was not vigorous and consisted of her licking the head of my penis with the tip of her tongue while performing a hand-job.

3 days later I noticed that I had penile thrush. I went to a dermatologist and was given an anti-fungal cream. Now the thrush has cleared up however I'm still using the cream just to be safe.

Exactly 15 days after the incident I started to have severe headaches, a swollen neck, diarrhea and a loss of appetite, now 20 days on I am beginning to feel better apart from my anxiety.

My question is what are my chances of contracting HIV? I think the thrush was caused by the blowjob as the side of my penis she was licking was much much worse than the side she wasn't which looked untouched.

Does the fact I got thrush from the encounter indicate that I am more likely to have contracted HIV or are the two unrelated?

I have read the statistics on both Oral and Female to Male transmission but I still can't get it out of my head.

Thank you so much, I really appreciate your time.

Condom protected sex is zero risk for hiv. You receiving oral sexis bot a riskfor HIV. There has been no documented cases in this manner. There is some controversy in giving so she is more of at risk from you than you to her. Take care!
