Very Scared Risk of Infection
« on: May 29, 2018, 01:37:28 am »
 went to a upper class brothel where the ladies are regularly tested for HIV.
During the encounter as I was drinking the girl asked if I wanted to have a dildo shoved up my ***. I said yes and she put a condim on the dildo and put it up my ***. I didn’t like it and told her to stop. I’m no worried about previous times she may have done this. What if there was HIV or hepatitis infected blood from a previous client. She didn’t wash the dildo but put a condom on it. What is my risk here. I’m very scared blood could have been present and infected me. Should I get tested.

I went to get a regular blood test and it said I had elevated liver enzymes. I did a liver X-ray and that came back normal. This could be due to the bipolar medication that I regularly take though. My foot is also swollen. What are my risks.

Could I Be infected

I am assuming she would change condoms between customers that would be the purpose of using a condom.

If the condom was new you have zero risking of contracting the Hepatitis C virus. If the condom was reused and if the previous customer was one of the about one percent of the population that has hep c and you had broken skin allowing the passage of theveruvsmall chance of Hepatitis c blood being present to enter your blood stream through an open fresh wound you could in a theroetical sense have a small risk of contracting Hepatitis c. If concerned about this small theoretical risk wait 12 weeks then have a Hepatitis c antibody test. This is the only way to be absolutely sure you do not have hep c. No amount of guessing or conjecture will be able to answer the question.
That being said I doubt in my non-medical lay persons opinion that you had a significant risk. For a more informed answer speak with a medical professional like your own doctor for their recommendations.

“What are my risks?”
A very small number greater than zero.

“Could I Be infected?”
Maybe. The only way to be sure is to be tested in 12 weeks.

This community is related to Hepatitis and liver disease so I know nothing about the finer points of HIV transmission but as a guess I would say more or less the same would apply. New condoms zero risk.
