Can someone please tell me the risks of genital to genital rubbing. Is it possible to get HIV through this way? I have asked my ex partner 6 times if he has ever been with anyone else and if I need to know anything. On all occasions he has swore he is telling the truth. I watch things on tv or if I develop a symptom, I get paranoid and start searching on the internet and then I assume I have an std or something. My ex was a virgin, we did nothing but genital to genital rubbing for a while 4 years ago. Now say if he wasn’t a virgin and say if he had HIV, what would my chances be of having contracted HIV through this way? A doctor on another site described it as safe sex as in no penetration, no risks, but I asked a GP (not my own doc) back in August about hiv and genital rubbing, he seemed rather annoyed (I am married now and he must have thought id been cheating on my husband) he told me that because its so close to the mucous membranes it is possible to get hiv through precum, when I asked to have a form for a hiv test, he said that if my test came out negative then he would have to put this in my notes and future life insurance companies may ask questions as in to why I requested this test.
I’m basically at my wits ends, I went through a phase where I thought I was fine and now because I have purple patches on the side of my tongue, im getting scared as this may be a sign of hiv? I have looked into this and its got something to do with poor circulation, which is a sign of hiv?
I am just full of guilt as I thought what I was doing was safe, but it may just end up being as risky as being penetrated.
Please please can someone help me.
