Chance of having std?

can you get hiv from kissing?
can you get hiv from kissing?

Recommended Posts

I had a encounter with a transexual escort tonight, and i gave oral sex without protection for a few mins, Nothing huge. No Cum nothing didn'

t taste any pre-cum or anything. I looked discretly after, and never saw any small sores that i would have missed etc.

 

I talked to her casually about stuff like that, she seemed careful but said nothings wrong with a bit of oral unless she notices, sores.

 

 

 

So think there is any chance i got infected with anything?

 

Im in the US and not home to canada for another week atleast so i can't get checked until then, im just asking because i have OCD so my mind will work me up ahah

 

 

ALSO we had protected sex but the condom didn't go all the way down her penis so she had some unprotected parts should i worry about possible lesions or little tiny rubbing cuts that i could have gotten hiv or anything from. We did use lots of lube.

If she was employed with an escort service, I think many of them require the escorts to be checked for STDs.

 

No matter what, though, there's always a chance if you do anything sexual without protection with someone who hasn't been tested. It doesn't mean you should panic, but get tested when you can and make sure to protect yourself next time.

Hey Einstein, there doesn't have to be any cum, sores OR ANYTHING present to expose you, or anyone else, to an STD.

DO YOU actually think that someone would tell you, "Yeah, I have (insert STD name here),I hope that's okay."

How hard is it to sexually educate yourself?!!

is it rare?

Not sure what you mean. Do you mean is it rare to catch an STD? No. It's very common, but it also depends on which circles you hang out in. Obviously the risks are much higher when you have sex with any random person as you never know their history or where they've been.

i mean from Escorts, i mean you'd think they would be careful because if they contract one it can hurt their business if there are any visible symptoms etc.

and from what iv read transexuals are generally very clean compared to alot of other escorts.

You can still catch HPV (genital warts) even if the condom was on the penis. There could have been tiny warts not visible to the eye at the base of the penis and all it takes is rubbing against the persons skin to catch it. Sometimes HPV doesn't even cause warts, instead it causes cancer, you can get cancer of the cervix/uterus or colon. You can get a colonoscopy if they detect precancerous cells during a pap. Or if you are a male its important to get the prostate checked, they usually notice the disease during this test. Usually men over 40 get the prostate checked but you can ask a doctor (if you are a male) since your having anal sex frequently if you should get it tested sooner. (Not sure if you are male/female) Also, you can catch herpes from bodily fluids. There could be no soars at all, it all depends on when the person is having a break out, if the person is about to have a break and there is bodily fluids and you get their fluids on or in you then you can catch the herpes. If you gave oral you could probably get cold soars. Im not sure how long it takes to get it but your first outbreak (i could be way off because i am guessing, I forgot) could take about 1-3 weeks to get.

 

As for HIV, I couldnt say but I think the first symptoms are almost like hot flashes going up and down your back. Maybe a fever not sure I forgot, discharge sometimes, and feeling very tired because your white blood cell count goes way down.Some of these symptoms don't occur at all. But it does take a while to learn if you have HIV or not usually you have to get tested twice or something like that because there is a 2 month window. I could be way off (I studied this in high school) and technology these days could be better but I think you can get a false negative your first test because it takes a few months to detect on the test. But like everyone else is saying, get tested ASAP. You can go to a clinic in your city, certain clinics will give you std test even if you dont have health insurance if it is your first visit. Usually there are AIDS organizations that help infected people cope with this disease everyday, at these organizations they sometimes give out free std test and HIV test if it is your first time.

 

Also, please get yourself educated on stds. Our youth today are more educated because there is more information out there and the public school system throws out tons of information out there. (they usually have the sex ed class in high school or middle school) Please do yourself a favor and get educated and if you don't want to contract anything refrain from sex, or find one partner to do it with. I wish you the best. The only way of knowing is getting tested.

should i be that worried about contracting a std from the oral or the protected sex?

Both. Condoms have limited effectiveness against HPV and HSV, both of which are very prevalent, and odds are good that a sex worker will have both. The good thing about HPV is that even if you get it, your body can usually fight it off. As for herpes, she would have to be shedding to transmit the virus.

 

Unprotected oral can expose you to both of those, which cannot be treated, as well as a few other bugs, most of which can be treated. I wouldn't worry about HIV from either unprotected oral or protected sex.

 

As scary as all that sounds, the odds of picking up something from one encounter are pretty low. But the only way to tell for sure (with the exception of HPV, which isn't tested for in men without warts), is to get tested after the waiting period for the various tests.

 

I'm speculating here, but I would guess that IV drug use is not uncommon for transsexual prostitutes, so you can add hepatitis to the list of potential STDs.

I've seen this line of reasoning in other threads. Yes, some high-end escort services, and certainly the legal ones, will test for basic STDs. But remember there's a window period for those tests. And a sex worker is most certainly having sex during the window period, so the test results are never current.

 

And no one is testing for HPV or HSV, and if they are, it certainly isn't going to stop them from working. Even pornstars don't bother with HPV and HSV tests. What's the point? Both are highly prevalent and untreatable, so if they were to test positive do you think they are going to quit? Do you think their employer is going to fire 80% of their escorts or pornstars?

Actually your body doesn't get rid of it because its a virus. You will have HPV for life. What happens is the virus hides in you spinal cord somewhere and stays dorment. Just like herpes, warts can start popping up from stress. Sometimes your body will fight off the warts, but you will always have the HPV and will always be able to transmit it. (HPV is the virus that causes warts and cancer)So it kinda of sucks, that someone could have it but you just can't see it.... Another thing is HPV causes cancer in both men and women. In women they can get cervical cancer or colon cancer. In men they can get cancer in the colon. They do have a vaccination for the cancer causing HPV types for women but it does not prevent all types of HPV. I think there are like 100 different strands out there.. not sure I could be exaggerrating but there are more then one type and they differ in the type of wart you get and whether they are cancerous or not...

 

 

So yea, get tested. And when you give oral pleaseeeeeeeeee use a condom because you can get herpes in your mouth (cold soares) and you can get get warts/hpv of the throat. You can get thrush of the mouth (a yeast infection in your mouth) and strep throat from bacterial infections that someone could be carrying.. Pleasee get tested! And please, in the meantime do not have sex.

 

Goodluck

 

 

Oh and please wash your hands after sex you can transmit these infections to your eyes as well. No Joke.. look it up.

Actually your body doesn't get rid of it because its a virus. You will have HPV for life. What happens is the virus hides in you spinal cord somewhere and stays dorment.

I was going off the CDC website:

HPV types are often referred to as “low-risk” (wart-causing) or “high-risk” (cancer-causing), based on whether they put a person at risk for cancer. In 90% of cases, the body’s immune system clears the HPV infection naturally within two years. This is true of both high-risk and low-risk types.

 

We get infected with viruses all the time, but the body fights many of them off, e.g., influenza. HSV is different in that it hides in the nerves and is able to avoid being annihilated by our antibodies.

 

You say that HPV takes root in the spinal cord. Do you have source you can link to?

 

I found this: link removed:

In the case of HPV, the infection is actually localized directly to the infected point in the skin, as opposed to herpes simplex, where the virus goes through the skin and into the nerve cells, traveling up the nerve cell connection to the nerve ganglia by the spinal cord, where the virus lives. With HPV, the infection is actually in the skin.

 

Also, this: link removed:

One problem is terminology. What does it mean for an HPV infection to persist? If a snippet of DNA has been integrated into the host cells, but not enough DNA to result in viral replication, does that count as persistence or cure? If the virus's full DNA genome persists but the immune system successfully prevents it from replicating and causing warts or pre-cancerous changes, is that persistence or cure? What if there are whole virus particles, not just DNA, but something (immune system, DNA regulatory mechanisms) keeps it from ever causing a problem?

 

So the biology is uncertain. But some of the epidemiologic facts are clear. Once HPV clears up, it is rare for that particlar infection to either cause problems in the future (warts, pap smear changes) or to be transmitted to a sex partner. And once a person has cleared a particular strain of HPV, the immune system makes it rare to catch that HPV type again. But "rare" doesn't mean these things never happen; they do.

 

From a practical standpoint, my view is that most people can consider themselves cured when all signs of their HPV infection are gone, there is no recurrence within a few months (and certainly within a couple of years), and the available tests do not detect the virus. Undoubtedly some people with those outcomes still carry viral DNA. I consider them cured, and I encourage affected persons to act accordingly. It is precisely because of the emotional impact that I lean toward using the word "cure". But at a biological level, depending on the definitions I imply above, some (a few? many? most? all? we just don't know) are not cured.

HPV is also the virus that causes common and plantar warts (different strains from the genital HPV strains), so pretty much everyone has been exposed to HPV.

So It would have been hard to get herpes from that oral sex ?

 

Even if she was infact postive for it?

 

Also my question is iv done alot of research say i got the HSV-2 (WHich is genital herpes) From oral sex, Would it give me HSV - 1 (Oral Herpes) Even tho they are different strains of the virus. Iv read that it is very hard to get HSV-2 In the mouth. Not Impossible but very rare.

If she had HSV-2 genitally, then she could transmit HSV-2 to your mouth, giving you oral HSV-2. You are correct, this is not common, at least as far as the medical community currently knows.

 

It is possible she has genital HSV-1, which can then be transmitted to your mouth.

 

But both scenarios assume you don't have a pre-existing oral HSV-1 infection. Odds are decent that you do, just going by how widespread oral HSV-1 is. If you do, you are resistant to a new oral infection by either strain.

 

Any HSV transmission scenario requires her to have been shedding virus. People with herpes typically shed virus only a small percentage of the time. The problem is that you don't when that is.

Ok so is the reason hsv-2 of the mouth isnt common because alot already have hsv-1?

I have never had a cold sore in my life, (Even when i was a baby iv asked my parents ) so i highly doubt i have hsv-1 , but if i did contract hsv-1 it wouldn't be that bad would it? because The majority of the population already have it.

Yes, that's part of it. Also, HSV-2 has a greater affinity for the genital area than the oral area.

Actually, from a transmission perspective, it would be better to contract HSV-2 orally than HSV-1, because it will have fewer outbreaks (cold sores) and less viral shedding, so you are less likely to infect a partner.
