Can Anal Sex Cause HIV?
Hello my name is Andi (pseudonym), last month on November 14, 2019, I carried out risky activities (Sex Anal) with my friend whose HIV status I did not know, when he wanted to put his (penis) into my rectum, I felt pain because it was only the first times do that and he still tried to insert it but failed, finally he sodomized me half (only the head of the penis that went inside the anus) because I was still feeling pain finally he sharpened his thrust so that as a result my rectum felt very painful and immediately I pushed him and pulling out his penis, he tried to stimulate my anus with my finger but it didn’t work either, even though I changed the style of my position above I still felt pain finally we ended the sex and we masturbated together, at that time my butt just felt a little pain, I licked a little sperm is left. that night because I ate just half the night I had a very thin chapter but didn’t get diarrhea and at the time I didn’t feel any pain at all. 1 week after doing that I often eat spicy foods and as a result I often have runny and hot chapters, while on my trip I defecate in one of the muddy waters and I use it to wipe and from there 2 days later my anus feels painful when the chapter even though the stool is normal, not liquid and not solid. The question is whether I am at risk of contracting a sexually transmitted disease (HIV)? and is the inflammation in my anus due to anal or other factors? I have repented and will not repeat that stupid act, I become traumatized and afraid because in the shadow of HIV and smpe now 3 weeks after that incident I stay away from my friend and I have done my anus treatment with a doctor’s prescription. so far there have not been any signs or symptoms of HIV that I felt or experienced. Thank you Previously, Wassalam …..
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Basically the highest risk of HIV transmission through sexual contact is through anal sex. The risk is higher in receptive parters (people who enter the anus) compared with insertive partners (people who put the penis into the anus), and a higher risk when ejaculated in the anus. From your story, you still have the risk of being infected with HIV even if you don't ejaculate in your anus (your risk of contracting is around 0.65%). This number may look low, but it still shows the possibility that you have contracted HIV if your sexual partner has HIV.
You should first check with your sexual partner whether your partner has HIV or not. If your partner does not know, suggest that your partner do an HIV test as well. For yourself, you are advised to carry out an HIV test approximately 4 weeks after having the risky sexual intercourse in a laboratory that has a 4th generation HIV testing facility (antibody and antigen testing). You can consult a doctor first if you are not aware of the laboratory examination facilities in your area, and the doctor will be able to tell you exactly when you have to do an HIV check based on the available HIV testing tools. There are different types of HIV testing itself, and the window period for each of these test kits varies. At present the 4th generation of HIV testing is the one that can detect HIV most quickly, which is 4 weeks after risky behavior.
