Oral and fingering risk

Before sex and after sex, I brushed my teeth a bit too hard, and I could taste my own blood. I performed oral sex on a girl with unknown status, and I also deep fingered her. The day before, I cut my nails too deep and it bleed a little. I am WSW, but she had a few male and female partner before. Not too sure if relevant, but she also always brush her teeth after and before sex. Around two weeks after, I feel muscle ache that lasted for a day, and I got persistent sore throat that lasted almost a month.Should I get tested?

Fleshlight and HIV

Hello. I entered my penis a fleshlight that my friend used after he has just ejaculated into it (There was no other sexual activity involved). Unfortunately, I do not know whether he is HIV positive, and due to my tight foreskin, I was unable to enter fully. However, I am not sure whether I will be HIV positive as:
1. My penis technically touched my friend's pre cum
2. the fact that my penis struggled to pull down means that the penis could be teared off (small leaks on the foreskin that hiv can enter my body through his premium)
3. I am not sure whether the HIV virus is dead as the semen and pre cum are technically out of his body (inside the flashlight) after ejaculation.

Based on my information, am I highly in risk for HIV? Hope to hear from you, Thanks!

unprotected fellatio

Dear Doctor, I'm a male from Romania and I'm 52 years old.
About one month ago I had got a fellatio from a prostitute.
I had some inflamation on my penis and the oral was about 30 seconds.
She had some signs on her back.
After 11 days I had a sore throat which it hasn't even passed now.
What should I do? I think a have HIV.
Please answer me.

Greetings,
In 2013, i did unprotected vaginal sex with a commercial sex worker.
After three months i got sick for 21 days it was all unexplained.
After 6 months, i got gastritis and still have it.
in Jan 2014 i got phyrengitis and still have it.
in 2015 i got facial parotid burning and still have it.
in Dec 2015 i got ear blockage problem and still have it
in 2016 my back got sensitive to air , its a burning kind of sensation and still have it and later in the same year i got chest pain issue and still have it, its one of my very bad symptoms which has disturbed my whole life.
in 2017 i used to get the cervical pain, when doctors did MRI, they showed something called up cervical lymphadenopathy and still have it..

i have had no other exposure after this incident other than my wife.

so all my issues i mentoined above phyrengitis, ear blockage, parotid heaviness and parotid burning, back burning, chest pain and cervical lymphadenopathy .. they all still persists and have disturbed the quality of my life.. specially my chest pain, cervical lymphadenopathy and parotid burning.

I did test for HIV via 4th gen Eclia test in 2013 - 3 months post exposure negative.
again HIV test via 4th gen Eclia test in 2013 - 8 month post exposure negative.
Tested 16 months in 2014 via Ehanced Chemlum - negative
Tested at somewhere in 2015 via Elisa - negative, my test range was 0.2453 , cutoff value 1.

in 2014 i got married and my wife has become so weak ever since after marrying me, she got the nails problem and After a year to our married she got measles and now she has got the kidney problem.

i have developed so many neurological problems now.. i swear i never used to go to the doctor or never got that much of sick and now whatever is problem is diagnosed, its becoming permanent ... doctors are unable to resolve. i never told my doctors about my HIV exposure to confuse them.

do i need any other test? to be honest i am so much afraid to go for the testing now..

Negative results but anxiety & symptoms

Hello ,
I had an exposure due to broken condom in Feb-2019.
I was tested several times negative - 1 week, 6 weeks, 10 weeks & 13 weeks after the exposure.
The test was 4th generation Duo test in the lab.

I have symptoms such as persistent sore throat , neck pain & burning sensation in the skin.
I never had these symptoms before the exposure.
No fever , my weight is stable.

Whenever, I get a symptom, my mind goes straight to HIV.
Should I still be concerned with HIV ?

please advice.

Hiv Scare

Hello

Thank you so much for the works you do.

I have been dating my girl friend for the last 2 months. Intially she had resisted going for an hiv test but last week we both visited a health facility to get tested. She turned out Positive while I was Negative.

I guarantee that I used a latex condom 100% in all the penetrative sexual intercourse I had with my girlfriend. The number of rounds were about 20 in a period of two months.

The earlier symptoms of joint and muscle arches, heel pains, lower back pain have reduced greatly.

Now I face new symptoms like a persistent headache, I feel heat in my armpits, a bit of night sweats and congested nostrils without any flu. My neck pains have persisted.

I took an HIV DNA PCR test this week and hoping to get my results in two weeks time. I will share. Y results with you immediately.

Kindly let me know what you think about my new symptoms? Can HIV go through an expired condom? (Am not saying I used one, am only asking)

I used a latex condom all the way through, I didn't see any of the condoms break, leak or slip. These symptoms are freaking me out.

Please be honest dnt sugarcoat anything give me the truth so I can get a remedy.

God Bless you for helping people like us.

Thank you
Best Regards

Can there be an HIV and Gonorrhea transmission at the same time through saliva?

Hello and good day!

I had an unprotected insertive oral sex with a man whom I didn't know the HIV status. After 2 days, I noticed a discharge being secreted by my penis. I immediately went to my doctor and he said that I probably got this through unprotected insertive oral sex. At the moment, I am not in my medication for my discharge. He also recommended to have my HIV test after 6 weeks. Here are my questions and hoping that you'll consider anwering them.

1. Is it possible to acquire HIV through saliva and insertive oral sex?

2. Can the gonorrhea bacteria and HIV virus combine at the same time that I may possibly also be infected by both?

Thank you very much for considering my inquiry. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Transmission in Household Settings

CDC inform about few (eight cases shown in table) HIV Transmission in Household Settings. (https://www.cdc.gov/mmwr/preview/mmwrhtml/00030972.htm)

I have heard that HIV is never transmitted through casual contacts, and now I am little concerned about this information. Could you explain?

INSERTIVE ORAL SEX HIV RISK

I had unprotected INSERTIVE oral sex with a prostitute. The following day i went to the Clinic and i was given PEP. Then i looked for the prostitute the day after starting PEP and took her for HIV 1/2 (Duo) serum test, Syphilis test, HBsAg and AntiHCV (rapid) which all came back Non reactive. I went back to the doctor after the results and he told me since the results were negative i should stop PEP and move on. so i stopped PEP on my 5th day. But am sick and worried of the fact that she might have been in her window period. Though she assured me that she is not sick because every 3 months she goes for check up and practices safe sex. The only time she does not use the condom is during oral sex.

Am i at Risk of contracting HIV from receiving unprotected oral sex on my penis? Was i wrong to stop PEP? Was the doctor right to ask me to stop PEP? and have read somewhere were it says insertive oral sex is negligible risk and no case has been documented. Am i sick.

John (Protected Sex)

I went to a massage parlor which had a Thai therapist. We have sex with condom on but I didn’t finish (although she finished multiples times).
Condom (which was half way on the dick as the condom was little lose. She removed the condom and gave me a blow job. She cut my penis head as she was wearing braces (this I later realized). Finally she gave me an oil hand job.
Now I am scared that I may have gotten hiv as when she removed the condom the bodily fluids from sex might have been there on my penis and then she gave me a blow job with a cut on my penis. Might have exposed my penis blood stream to the virus.
Is there any chances I could get hiv from this??.
I am really worried couldn’t sleep for days
