[Question #4385] Unprotected Exposures, Oral, Masturbation potentially Insertive Vaginal.
29 months ago
It’s with great regret that I have found myself writing to you as I initially believed I would never be in this position but there we are, that’s the way the wind blows.
I have been in a committed relationship for the last 2 and a half years. We were both, to my best knowledge, clean when we started dating. In the last 2 and a half years I have stepped out three times and the most recent has stopped me from moving on in a sensible manner. So down to brass tacks, you’ll notice an alcohol link unfortunately:
- Late October 2016, deep kissing and mutual masturbation, no penile penteration of any kind. I assumed this was no/too low risk and moved on
- March 2018, unprotected oral and genital rubbing. No penile penetration in vagina or anus. Read here that this is considerably low risk and so, perhaps unnecessarily, put it out of my mind.
- 3 days ago. No unprotected oral but genital rubbing. She seemed to think I penetrated her briefly at <30 seconds. I don’t remember this and was sure it was non-insertive. Mutual masturbation was the also undertaken
Guilt has consumed and I have ordered a test through Sexual Health London on the NHS. I am worried about the sheer anxiety I have towards the test and the potential results. It is almost enough to stop me pursuing it which I’m aware is a poor attitude. Can you please gauge my risk? Can I expect negative results? I am UK based, for what it’s worth, and the test is HIV, Gon, Chlamydia and Syhillis. Cheers.
