Single exposure intravenous needle

I'm curious about the chances of contracting HIV through a singular intravenous use of a (possibly) contaminated needle. Person at risk isn't intravenous user, has never had sex, and this was first and only time doing intravenous injection. Person assisting with injection possibly is positive and may have intended to infect. Person at risk was told was new, clean needle, but may have been lied to.

HIV Test at 2 months & 1 Week Negative

Thanks for taking the time to look at this question.

I honestly have a fear of HIV, I'm honestly scared that I'll get it and its always on my mind. I'm gay and I recently broke up with my ex partner over 2 months ago. The last time we had sex was about 9 weeks ago, and yes we didn't wear protection. I found out that he had raw sex with someone else while we were together in the last two weeks that we were together. Fortunately we know that person he had sex with and they both say they are negative and my ex is now on prep.

But I am still paranoid as I have chronic fatigue and most of the symptoms are similar to HIV and its playing on my mind and affecting me every day.

I had a little over a month check and it was negative, I just had a 9 week test and this was also negative. What are the chances say one of them did have HIV that my 9 week negative result could still come up positive at the 12 week mark? I can't keep going on like this :(

Transmission risk for baby

Are babies or immunocompromised people most vulnerable for HIV infection?

Cut by braces receiving blow job. What are my risks?

Hi i received a blow job from a tranny with braces. I do not know if she had bleeding gums or open sores. It was dark so i did not notice any blood right after the blow job. But when I got home I noticed minor cuts on the glande and there was a bit of my blood. I am at risk? as far as a understand is her saliva -may be with an open cut in her mouth because of her braces- vs my penis getting cut.

HTS

Hi,

About a 3 months ago I had unprotected sex with several partners. Also oral sex, ı both received and gave. I did not know their STD or HIV status. Two weeks ago I had something like blister, papilla or pimple showed up my vagina and increased it was painful at the beginning. I've seen gynocologist and she told me I don't have any warts or herpes with physical examination. I am still waiting for pap smear test results. However, a week ago I had swollen lymph nodes on my throat. And later my gums started to swollen. Now I have problems with my gingival and worried about gingivities. I had open sores on my mouth, cheeks when I had oral sex. I am so worried abput all STD's or HIV. I already tested and waiting for the results. But these symptoms are raising every day and I am really worried.

Should I really worry about the hiv possibility, and do these symptoms look like hiv?
Thank you so much for your answer, I appreciate it very much.
Kind regards

Hiv risk transition through blood to open sore

Hi,

I stupidly did coke on the weekend and I don’t use notes or straws as I don’t like sharing with other people. However, I was getting the coke of the plate with my finger and then inserting this into my nose. I noticed half way through there was a bit of blood on the plate (I had a nose bleed previously so potentially mine). If it wasn’t mine - and I dabbed that bit of coke and also some of the blood (someone else’s) and inserted into my nose with my open sore, am I at risk of HIV, I am very nervous and would love some clarity on the situation.

Thank you

Getting HIV as a Tattoo Artist, Got Poked by the Needle

Hello, so ive been going crazy for something that happened about a year and a half ago and would love to get some peace of mind form you guys. I am a tattoo artist in Tijuana, Mexico, and was doing a piece on a guy who had a drug abuse past. Half way through the tattoo I lifted the machine and accidently poked myself in the finger, it wasnt a hard poke, and i dont even think it pierced my glove, so i didnt make much of it. But lately ive had a ear infection i cant seem to get rid of, saw something hiv related on tv and now my hypocondria is driving me mad. Is there a chance for me to be exposed if the needle pierced the glove and poked my finger a little bit? i remember checking for blood, and nothing, but i did feel some pain at the moment of the incident. All my materials were clean, unused and sterelized. I cant ask the guy beacuse he died of overdose a couple of months ago, helping my paranoia flare up some more. I hope u cant find time to help me with this. I thank you in advance for this and all the other work you do.

P.S. Im sorry if i screwed up the spelling, english is not my mother language.

Unprotected fellatio...fully protected vaginal sex....Latex condom being intact..

Sir , I had sex with one female ( unknown status of HIV) 9 days ago , unprotected oral sex by me lending penis and she giving mouth i.e. penile mouth oral sex ...I am HIV -..... did not ejaculate ( she appeared not to have any mouth sores, also when kissed , I could not taste any blood or any bad breath or any abnormality /abrasion - but I am not 100% confident about gum disease, if any she had).. we kissed not very deep and not dry either for 10-12 seconds max....
Then I had fully protected vaginal sex and the condom being fully intact ( I am sure as I have checked it two times during the activity and also checked by putting it under tap water - it did not leaked ) hence I am fully confirm to have it intact....no ejaculation and ejected the penis while more or less straight... No condom sleep off ....
Now she had no lesions/rashes on her entire body / skin / face/ mouth ....appeared hyegenic...
But now I am freaking out for the fear of HIV....
How about my chances of contracting it ....?
Please reply to it...

I am very anxious....
