Pls help, I had unprotected oral with a girl, after that I noticed I had bruises on my penis, really scared, I went and did rapid antibody test with the girl and we both came back negative. Do I need another testing?
I had sex with a lady sex worker and I don't know whether she is HIV positive or negative. I am completely unaware of her current status. During sex I wore two condoms at a time and had sex around 30-45 seconds. When I removed my penis from her vagina I found that the edge (Upper side) of the condom wet with vaginal fluid. I removed both condoms from my penis and thrown it in dustbin. I checked the condoms and it was not broken.
My question is that the vaginal fluid discharged from that lady can cause HIV if my penis is not in direct contact of the vagina ??. Only my condoms got wet with that fluid.
I am sure that there was no direct contact of my penis semen and her vaginal liquid.
Could you please help me out on the above questions as I am worried a lot. I got tensed from last few days and not able to concentrate on my daily work.
Thanks in advance...
I had my first Sex encounter about 3 to 4 months before I got tested. After the Rapid Test, the one that takes your blood from your finger the result for both HIV and Syphillis (Sorry for the spelling) the result was Non Reactive... I plan to abstain and never do that again and will fight the temptation... I just want to know what it means... Thanks.
I had protected sex with a prostitute after 9 days I got fever and I got treated after 3 days.
After this I got ulcers in my mouth and testicles and rashes which went away after getting treated in 2 days and a little swollen lymph gland in my neck. I inserted my penis and gave 5 strokes and I felt horrible so I stopped it am I at risk of hiv?
Hi everyone. I would just like to get your opinion regarding my risk/possible exposures and the results of my previous tests.
June 7 (possible exposure # 1) - unprotected anal and oral sex with a guy met from an online application with ejaculation on mouth only
June 9 - sore throat, diarrhea, low grade fever, diarrhea, night sweats, muscle pains (arms, legs, back) all for 6 days.
July 30 (7.5 weeks past exposure # 1) - tested negative at a local clinic using HIV antibody rapid test
August 14 (possible exposure # 2) - gave unprotected oral sex with ejaculation, upper gums got swollen in the afternoon
August 24 (11 weeks past exposure # 1) - tested negative using an approved Philippine home HIV test kit (finger prick blood)
August 30 (2 weeks past exposure # 2) - high fever for 2 days, nausea, headache, diarrhea for 1 week
I was so paranoid and related these symptoms to my oral sexual encounter last August 14. My gums got swollen that day and I thought that I could have an open sore that time which led to the possible infection. What makes me more bothered is that I got the fever around 2 weeks after, when ARS typically appears
September 12 (4 weeks past exposure # 2) - Due to paranoia and since I haven't purchased a new HIV kit yet, i re-tested using the kit I used last August 24, since there was still a reagent/HIV buffer left. Before re-using, I was so sure that there was no indication of any line in the T area. After putting blood and the buffer, there was a faint line that showed in the T line!
September 27 (6 weeks past exposure # 2) - tested negative using a new HIV kit.
Now, my questions:
1. I know it was a dumb idea to re-use the kit, but why is there a faint line that appeared? Is it because I re-used the kit? I was thinking there could be something that really reacted from my blood, because if there is nothing, then it should have stayed the same, with nothing appearing on the T-line.
2. Is the September 27 test more reliable? I know that 3-month test is conclusive, but could this be a false negative, given that a faint line appeared on my September 12 test? Did I just use the kit wrongly this time, that's why there is no faint line that appeared?
3. If my September 27 test was indeed accurate, am I cleared of my June 7 exposure?
4. Given my oral exposure last August 14, should I re-test at the three month mark?
What are your thoughts?
i) i read that terminal cancer can extend hiv window period but other cancers don't extend hiv window period , if so i can we know we have terminal cancer and what is difference between terminal cancer and other cancers?
2) i read from dr.hunter handsfield blog that even overwhelming systemic infections can extend hiv window period , if so how will we know if we have systemic infection?
i had an oral sex with girl and i did elisa test in 3 months , which came back negative but above questions worries me to much pls help god bless u
This is probably a really stupid question but I have to ask it anyway for some reassurance. The other day it was raining and a bum asked me for some change, trying to help him out I stopped and gave him my umbrella to hold. After I gave him some change I took my umbrella back. I had about a day old cut on my thumb is there any chance of HIV exposure from this? I didn't notice any blood on his hands or my umbrella I think I am just being paranoid. Please give me some reassurance. Thank you!
I had a sexual encounter with someone who was HIV positive. There was no penetration but he was grinding my anus and ejaculated. I have genital warts and herpes around the anus so very worried this could put me at great risk. Very anxious at the moment and would love to know if this was high risk
Thanks in advance for your advice
Hi, I am a big worrier in everyday life in general however I am extremely concerned I may have got HIV.. I slept with a girl who I suspect may have HIV (let's assume that she does), I wore a condom the whole time, didn't do anything without one on, and I only engaged in intercourse for max 4 minutes, however when I got home I noticed a friction sore on the base of my penis, it wasn't bleeding, it was just a bit red.. Should I be worried? Even tho I had a condom on it might not of covered this sore up, is there any way that HIV could of got into my bloodstream through this?Please help as I'm really concerned about this
Hi everyone, Hope ur all doing well!
Yesterday at my pathology lab work experience, I was told by one of the lab assistants to have a go at scanning the bar codes on the blood samples which were concealed in long tubes, so being there for experience, I gave it a go. However, later I realized that I wasn't wearing any gloves and remembered what the main pathologist said to not to touch any blood samples. I washed my hands after 2hours of realizing. I had a small fresh paper cut on my finger that day too. Is this a risk of getting HIV or any other viruses? Please help!
