Am I exposed to any kind of STD ?

Hello. I am 25 years old. Today I went to a club. I met 55 years old prostitute. after a couple of drinks, we went to a room and danced together. we hugged. But, as we both were tempted, we danced naked and during that time, I may have touched her bare body and vagina. At the end we mutually masturbated. We did not perform either sex, oral sex or anal sex. But, can I acquire any kind of an std (hiv, hsv, hpv, syphilis, chlamydia, gonorrhea, etc..) as I have touched my penis after touching her naked body and outside of her vagina?

Please kindly, go through this issue and let me know your opinion. I am scared to death.

You just touched someone?  Sexually transmitted usually implies some type of sexual activity.  Your biggest activity here was masturbating yourself.  Just touching her is not something to be concerned with.  Here's a post made by an std and HIV expert about touching and std's.  https://www.medhelp.org/posts/STDs/Does-Fingering-lead-to-an-STD/show/1131582.  It simply is not a risk.  

I think you should NOT participate in any of this type of activity as you are clearly too anxious to handle it.

Thank You So Much Mr. GuitarRox for the information. I should avoid these kinds of activities. Yes.  I am not good at handling anxiety.
I will not perform any test as I feel the risk was zero. Or shall I?
Nope, no need to test. You had no risk at all.

Here are some posts from our experts (when we had them) that may help -





https://www.medhelp.org/posts/HIV---Prevention/Vaginal-fluid-on-hand-touched-inside-of-condom-and-head-of-penis/show/1119533 - read this thread thoroughly. There is an excellent explanation about why certain activities are not risks, and why others are.

My friend...this has nothing to do with stds is my best guess based on the kind of research i did. You can see my posts and i also feel the same next day as this is more of anxiety. What i know is these virus are very fragile and die when exposed to nornal temperature. Also for hsv u need to have direct skin to skin contact which did not happen in your case. I hope this helps and we wait for experts answer.
My friends, I am very scared that ai might caught some kind of a std. Syphilis, herpes or any other dangerous type. I dont know. I dont know what to do.
I feel like you haven't been reading our responses.

Three of us have told you that you have no risk for anything, and I gave you loads of links as to why.

You may have a cold or the flu (it's still flu season in lots of places), but you do not have any STD from this encounter.

Don't take PEP. It has some serious side effects that aren't worth it if you have no risk for HIV.

So breathe, read the responses again, and take a deep breath. Then read the responses again, slowly. You did not get an STD from this encounter.
Dear Auntiejessi,
I went through all the responses as well as all the links.
But, as I suddenly developed the symptoms, I am scared. As GuitarRox mentiined earlier I shouldnt involve in these kind of activities.
Well. I have a doubt. If I assume my urethra had contaminated with 0.1 ml of all std positive vaginal fluid, am I still considered to be at the safe zone ?
The other issue is, today I woke up with a white bump near the urethra. The appearance is like a white  pimple. So, I thought of going to the hospital today.
Well. The white bump seemed to be an ignorant issue. Auntiejessi was correct. And, they gave me another appoinment on 28th of May.
And, I have another question from community leaders. Can I keep updating this thread for three months.
As I get super nervous, the support from this group is very important to me to keep my inner peace.
Please let me update this thread with my every activity regarding this sitiation. Thank you.
GuitarRox said you shouldn't involve yourself in these kinds of activities because you are too anxious, not because you had risk. He also said you had no risk.

A sore throat and headache are not STD symptoms. It's allergy season. Perhaps you are feeling that.

I have no idea how you came to .1 ml of std positive vaginal fluid in your urethra, but mutual masturbation is safe. It assumes some body fluid will be exchanged, but it is still safe. Read the links again.

By now, you've already decided whether or not to get the white bump checked out. I don't think it needs the hospital, but if you went, let us know what they said.
Actually I was assigned to a lady doctor. She initially appreciated me for having courage to visit and get checked. Because, most of the time, people get into trouble when they do not take any action.
Well. She checked the white bump and told that is harmless.
But, she assigned another check up on 28th of May.
Accroding to her, although my exposure was very low risk, I should do all the blood tests and the physical examinations at the correct window period.
Then, I asked about the PEP. She did not prescribe me PEP due to its expense. She said, there are no life longing side effects but the treatment is very expensive.
And she advised me not to skip any of the tests. Because, recently there has been a similar incident and the guy has been tested positive.
I don't know where you live, but your doctor is seriously ill-informed.

Take the tests if you need to. I have a feeling that you need to or you won't be able to move beyond this.

There are no long-term side effects from PEP, but while you are taking them, there can be some serious side effects, including liver problems.

You have no risk. None at all. I don't know what kind of "similar incident" she is talking about, but no one has EVER been infected the way you describe. You won't be the first.

I'm glad the white bump is nothing.
Thank you. And, I live in Italy.
Italian doctors should know better. They have access to great resources.
Yeah. That's what makes me feel insecure. Why don't they just tell me "There is no risk at all, don't come back to the clinic." Instead, they are telling me "There can be a possibility of catching an std if there was an exchange of biological fluids. I should not miss any of the clinics and I should get my self tested."

I don't know. I am feeling devastated.
Well. To increase my devastation, today I saw a very small amount (half the size of water drop)of penile discharge similar to eye boogers. Is this normal?
Yes, it can be normal. Did you have to squeeze or milk your penis to get this discharge? If you did, that's not really a discharge. A discharge will happen without you squeezing or milking or doing anything at all to your penis to see it.

If it's related to an STD, it will be a pretty constant discharge. You won't get one drop of discharge, and then nothing else.


Let's be careful with word choices. The words we choose matter. You are not "devastated" or experiencing "devastation". What you are is scared and experiencing anxiety. Devastation is great destruction or damage, or severe and overwhelming shock or grief.

In your mind, you might have an STD. (You don't.) This is not great destruction or worthy of great shock or grief, even if you did have a risk (you don't). Most STDs are easily cured or managed. I don't say this to criticize you, but, with compassion, to point out how you are overreacting to this.

You had NO RISK.

There is no other way we can say it.
Hello. Today I went to the clinic and the doctors did not recommend any test. They said the same thing as aunty jessy.
But, I have a big issue now. When I masturbate, I cannot shoot like a jet. Before this exposure I was able to shoot normaly. Now, it is totally gone. It exits as some mucus  fluid flow.
Someone please explain me.
This is not related to any STD. This could be a prostate issue, or no issue at all. If it lingers, and it concerns you, talk to your doctor. There is no STD that affects ejaculation.
Hi auntiejessi, according to your understanding can this condition be cured ?
Today, motning also tried to masturbate. But, it was not erecting as well. So, I think, things are getting bad. And, I am having a mild fever and a sore throat as well.
As my doctor will be free on 6th of June, I am unable to meet him.
Please be kind as always, and give me a good advise. What should I do at this point?
I have heard about, staying absent from any sexual activity for 90 days can help this condition. Is it true ? What is your opinion. Thank You in advance.
I don't know what the condition is, so I can't give you advice on it.

If it's a prostate infection (which would not be from an STD from this encounter - you had no risk), then it can be cured.

If it's not, and it's something else, I don't know.

Anytime you have symptoms of an infection in the genital area, you should avoid sex. Not all infections that are considered to be STDs can still be sexually transmitted. Bacterial vaginosis is not considered an STD, but men can get the bacteria that causes it.

I think that since you have a fever, even mild, and a sore throat, you should rest, relax, and take it easy. Go to work or school or whatever if you have to, and if you think it isn't strep throat or something that is contagious, but otherwise, treat yourself as if you have a cold or the flu. Your body is telling you that something is wrong, so listen to it.

I don't know if the fever and sore throat are related to the ejaculation "issues" (which may be temporary and not issues at all), and they probably aren't related. All of this could be from stress.

When your body is talking to you, listen to it.

Hello Forum. Hi Auntiejessi.

Exactly, 2 months ago (06 / 05 /2019) I had an encounter. And, then exactly one month ago (06 / 06 / 2019) I performed the tests and obtained the results as followed.

1. HIV 1-2 IV Generation (Ag/Ab)  - Negative

2. Antibody anti treponema (EIA) - Negative

3. Chlamydia trachomatis Ab IgG and IgA - Negative

Today (06 / 07 / 2019) exactly the 2nd-month mark.

I know, you will tell the exposure I had was zero risk. But, I would be very grateful, if someone can interpret my blood test results. Thanks in advance.
