i recently witnessed the one of the most regretful moment in my life.i went to a massage parlour on 8 july (due to peer pressure) , had a body to body massage where she applied some sort of cream on my penis and started rubbing her upper part of body and stomach.I was tensed and ejacuated within minutes. i was terrified from that very moment whether my penis had brushed or rubbed her vagina or maybe penetrated her (i'm still a virgin so i have no idea how does it feel to be inside) , on 11th july i started experiencing hot body but not more than 99.4 f , night sweats ,white tongue and mostly it remained normal.i was in anxiety from that very moment , on 13th july i had a hiv test which came back negative (i wasn't aware of window period).i checked myself to a local med , he told me i having a minor viral and prescribed me medicines on 15th july. Fever(reoccuring) subsided till 18th but i had fatigue and body aches till 23 0r 24 (maybe side effects of meds) .But still anxiety was not letting me sleep , i visited the parlour again and ask her about her status she told me its no risk and was wearing a brief(but i dont remember that).i requested her to show me her past hiv report , next day she showed it to me it was 3 months old and negative. on 25 july i was completely feeling normal till i read about swollen glands and started checking on them , i didn't notice them initially but i guess after rigorous checking i guess i irritated two nodes , in my neck and other between neck and shoulder and now i can feel them they are elastic and does not cause pain(the only symptom i'm facing) .Anxiety is killing me that how the hell can i have hiv . please suggest me if i m at risk or are these ARS symptoms.i know its foolish but i m panicking like hell please help me with your valuable expertise.
Another thing happened on 5th july when barber was shaving me via blade behind my neck , he kind of cut him on finger , he noticed it for 5 or 6 secs and continued . i didn'nt paid much attention to it and after 3 days massage parlour thing happened.I'am just thinking of all the possible scenarios
I'm a bit obsessive compulsive about this, but I was using a semi-public restroom at my office and dropped something in the toilet. Without thinking, I reached it to retrieve it, washed my hands well, and then noticed two small cuts on the same hand I reached into the toilet bowl with. They weren't actively bleeding but had been bleeding the day before, and I completely forgot about them. Washed my hands again and sanitized them, but I can't get this out of my head. Any risk of HIV transmission?
Yesterday I had to use a public toilet. While doing my business some water from the bowl splashed on my anus zone which is somewhat irritated and has small scratches. Could it be dangerous if the person who used the bathroom before me had HIV? I know you say HIV dies with the air but I don't know if it is the same in the water (water toilet in this case)… I should say I couldn't wash my anus zone until six hours later, I don't know if it is important. Thank you for your answer and I apologize if I have grammar errors (English is note my first language).
I was at a barbers shop for a shave and haircut and noticed i was bleeding from one of my bumps beneath my jaw. When i asked if the hair clipper had been sterilized the barber said no because he had run out of the alcohol spray. This was a very busy day for the barber and there lots of people who had been shaved and had a haircut before me. This happened in Nigeria. Please do i need to commence PEP? Thank you for your help.
Thank you for providing this service. I do have a question and am a bit worried. I had protected sex recently and right after I noticed that I had jock itch (fungal infection) in my groin right next to my scrotum. It was beefy red, inflammed and had some areas of broken skin and what appeared to be small areas of blood. If the woman was HIV+, what is my risk of becoming infected if her vaginal fluid during sex came into contact with my jock itch? Thank you for your help.
I work in a lab where I routinely draw blood. I am usually very careful and notice if there is any blood on my gloves or lab coat after drawing a patients. The same day after drawing an hiv positive patient I noticed dry blood in the the crevice of my watch. Though I routinely wash or sanitize my hands, I am worried that I could have infected myself. I routinely touch my watch during the day and even while eating. I also had a couple of small cuts on my hand that I am worried could have had secondary transfer. What are my odds of being infected? I had a rapid test 72 hours afterwards that said negative but I keep seeing symptoms that look like early acute infection.
Hello, I have a bit of a problem I am going through with my mind running in the possibility I contracted HIV. Based on my extensive research I have done, I am quite certain I am in the safezone, but was not able to find anyone with the same situation I had. The other night, I was at a strip club, and a girl offered me a lap dance. After the first, she said lets do it again, but then she started to kiss me. They weren't deep kisses or anything, but a few times she bit my lip quite hard to where it actually hurt and I had to say stop. I remember waking up in the morning and seeing a tiny cut on the top of my lip from where she bit and it had me worried. I didn't know this girl at all, and since it was dark, I don't know the status of her mouth. Worst case scenario, if she was HIV+ and she had a bloody lip herself, and it touched my newly formed bloody lip, could I have contracted HIV? I know kissing isn't a way to get HIV, but if it was blood to blood on the lips, is there a possibility? The cut was very small, and within 48 hours had already completely healed up. I appreciate any feedback on this.
During shave I felt pain in my partially popped pimples but noticed no visible blood 1 hour after shave ( I didn't check immediately and checked only after returning home and had washed my face within that time). After I came home I noticed a few red scratches around my neck, although there was a slight pain but again there was no visible blood. Am I at risk? And also do the partially popped pimples pose a risk? I repeat there was no visible blood 1 hour after shave (I can't remember if there was during shaving though). I had almost 4/5 pimples around my face, some were partially popped and others were not popped. I experienced slight pain around my pimples and scratches during shave but there was no visible blood. The barber said he had changed blades but I don't believe him. Also there was around 1 minute time gap between the last customer and me. I am concerned that during shave my unpopped pimples were opened and it bled but remained unnoticed as I checked after 1 hour. Is this scenario possible? I am also worried about those red scratches around my neck. I can't remember if they were present before the shave or were created by the razor. If they were present before the shave and it bled while shaving would it have been possible by the time I noticed it (after 1 hour) all traces of blood around the scratches vanished? Or If the razor created those scratches, is that bad news for me. Can infected blood pass through scratches? How do I attach a picture of those red scratches made my the razor? I would also like to know if the shaving cream kills the virus. Please help me out I am extremely worried and can't focus on my studies. Thank You.
HI i am Jack. i was worried about my exposed.
my exposed is involved with CSW and without any sexual intercourse and body rub. but what i concerned is my finger got touching the csw vaginal surface but just touching the hairy part only. i was not remember weather i got sore or finger cut or not but after the incident i faster go to wash my hand but it look normal. so in this situation, am i in the risk ?
I went to beauty parlor girl 45 days before and while massaging she took my penis in her mouth for one second. Immediately I removed my penis and put condom and she gave me blowjob for 3-4 minutes., but my dick was not erect, so she did handjob. While sucking I saw her saliva coming down towards the base of penis where I did shaved my pubic hair before 3 hrs and their might be some superficial nicks bruises, abrasions, lesions. So what are my risk of
1.unprotected oral sex of one/two second.
2. if she had bleeding gums or sores in her mouth and her saliva mix with her blood enter to the unprotected area of my genital where there is superficial cuts before 3 hrs while sucking.
3 Also, if there is your risk assessment change, if the skin of the genital area including the pubic hair area, base of penis and scrotum which has thin skin and it will also be considered superficial cuts and will seal immediately after shaving cuts and not be direct access to the blood.
After 27 days of exposure I got runny nose for few hrs on first day.
Second day I was feeling chills all day.
Third and fourth day mild sore throat and low grade fever on and off.I was so scared that,I took rest for 2 days with 3 doses of paracetamol and 3 doses of antibiotic for two days fearing ars symptom.
Again after 39 days I got runny noses and chills on first day and mild sore throat and sometimes little temp and now it is 5th day and still sometimes feel mild fever.( I am not taking medicine for second time)
I m very depressed and very fear.
I had no other exposure other than this. had only sex with my wife since 20 yrs. Should I be tested or no test is required and I ignore this flu like symptom as not related to hiv and move on. plz help me I m very anxious and depressed. I am panicking and unable to eat & sleep since this exposure.
