Handjob at massage parlor. tested for HIV with 4th gen test at 4 and 6 weeks both neg. Also had a negative HIV RNA at 20 days. Are these conclusive?

HIV: HIV is transmissible through body fluids. Unless you had an open sore on your penis and the massager who gave you the "hand job" had an open sore, that were in contact, there is minimal to almost no chance you contracted hiv from that encounter. The tests are good, but remember any HIV exposure can take several weeks to seroconvert to a positive blood test. ...Read more

Why do i have chronic prostatitis? ALL started after hand job with lotion and oil from massage parlor. I may have infec my wife with prostate bacteria

Why do i have chronic prostatitis? ALL started after hand job with lotion and oil from massage parlor. I may have infec my wife with prostate bacteria

Prob'ly no infection: Most prostatitis is not due to infection. In uncommon cases of true infectious prostatits, it cannot be caught by hand-genital contact. "Prostate bacteria" are the same ones normal in intestines and genital tract and would not harm your wife. I doubt you have true prostatitis, probably all psychogenic. Google and read up on chronic pelvic pain syndrome; the Wikipedia article is good. ...Read more

Got a hand job at a massage parlor then had an STD test and HIV screen two months after it was negative should I retest? Any help would be great

Got a hand job at a massage parlor then had an STD test and HIV screen two months after it was negative should I retest? Any help would be great

Not due to a hand: The hand should fear the penis, and not the penis fear the hand. It is hard for the penis to catch an STD from the hand. That's because hands don't tend to have STD's, and masseuses wash their hands often, sometimes use hand sanitizer between clients, and usually have their hands coated with massage oil... all making the hands pretty safe. Penises, on the other hand, are a natural source of STD's. ...Read more
