the details I recently booked a Romanian escort in the uk for unprotected sex. stupid I know. basically I penetrated her for around 10-15 seconds then pulled out as realised I was being an idiot when I pulled out there was blood on the head and shaft of my penis ( was obvious she was on her period) I immediately grabbed a wipe to get it off,
I realise this is a risk so I will test at 8 weeks anyway.
but I have read vaginal sex is 1/2000 exposures if they have hiv, I don't know her status she assured me she was clean but not sure on hiv rates of Romanians and if they understand testing and so on due to language barrier I couldn't explain what I meant,
I also read that hiv dies as soon as it comes in contact with air, so I was wondering is 10/15 seconds inside a vagina long enough to become infected as would the hiv in the blood or on my penis (if I missed any blood when wiping) would it of died as soon as I pulled out my penis?
I'm extremely worried about this and I guess I just want to know if this is extremely high risk, is it likely she had hiv going by statistics of escorts who offer this service from her country and is the fact it was extremely brief does this lower the risk at all
thank you in advance

Yesterday my ankle was pricked by a needle on the street - it didn't bleed. The emergency ward at St. Paul's gave me the 3 PEP medications to take for the first 5 days, telling me I'd feel sick and my liver and kidneys could be affected. I've got 2 hours to decide whether or not to take them (in the first 24 hours). Aids Vancouver would have helped with my decision, but they're closed today. I'm quite healthy and don't want to be sick for the next 5 days or ruin my liver or kidneys, but don't know what the chances are for HIV or how long it would take for it to manifest. I need help to make this decision.
i had unprotected vaginal sex 19 weeks ago. I did 4 HIV tests at 5,8,12 and 16 weeks after exposure. and also other STD's. All the tests were negative. AT week 15 i experience some swollen lymph nodes in my nek. the test at week 16 was negative so the docter said that it is nothing to worry about. But iets been 3 weeks later and they are still there.. i am a bit worried now.
Also i have read that acyclovir kan slow down the reproduction of the HIV virus.
i take this medication voor HSV-1. And i have taken this medication the first week after exposure because i had an outbreak. I took it one week, 2 pills a day. My test at 5 weeks was negative. Than one day before the 12 week test after exposure i get another outbreak and took also this medication.
my questions are: Can i definitely rule out HIV? and Does acyclovir effect a HIV test or the HIV virus because it is used in the HAART therapie?
Recently my cousin was at the playground with her baby (1.5 years old). She didn't watch him for about 30 seconds to minute while he found a syringe that may contained blood on the ground and took the needle in the mouth. Afterwards she checked his mouth, lips, etc. - there were no pokes. But she is afraid if he pushed the piston and blood from it got into his stomach.
Is this case a high risk for HIV transmission? Does the child need testing? If so, when can he do it after exposure?
Many thanks for your help!!
Last night I went to a gay video store to get a blowjob through a glory hole. But the guy on the other booth decided to insert my bare penis into his anus instead without warning. Luckily I felt something was off and pulled out immediately. I think the tip of my penis might have been inside his rectum and I might have been inside no more than 4 or 5 seconds.
Should I start getting PEP to prevent infection? Should I get tested in a few weeks?
I'm really scared.
I had unprotected vaginal sex with a female whose hiv status i dont know.it was a very short,soft session,only once.I am a 19 year old male. what are the chances of me catching the virus? whats the fastest way i can get tested to know my results? Thanks.
Hi, I had anal sex with the same guy for three times (I was top) differently in March 16th,18th and April 16th. The first one was unprotected, and the other two were with condom. At March 19th, around 62 hours since the first exposure I was placed on pep with genvoya.
I finished 30 days pep course, and tested negative one day after pep with 4th generation ag/ab test. But lots of symptoms came to me about one or two weeks after the pep like pain throat, headache, rash, night sweating, diarrhea, myalgia, arthralgia etc.. put me in super stressed situation. Did another 4th generation test at May 12th negative, at May 28th, a local doc recommended me to do 4th generation tests along with hiv DNA (copies/1E6 cells, lower limit 20) and RNA (20 IU/mL) testss because he said results can be conclusive results so I don't have to wait in anxiety any longer, the ag/ab test was negative, the other two both results came back with results not detected.
I thought I could be relieved then. But I didn't, some of the symptoms keeps bothering me even till today, makes my life a mess, can't live and work normally. I went to different docs asking for help and the did give me, but not working. New health issues keep appearing, one after another, I barely got sick before this whole thing. My latest tests were June 21st and July 19th. Both 4th generation tests and both negative.
Also one thing I want to mention is the index value of the last three 4th tests results are increasing from originally 0.18 to the highest 0.48. I asked and people told me it's normal as long as it's lower than 1, don't need to worry, is that right. Will it keep increasing with the time going by? Is my latest test conclusive that I'm not infected or in another words, do all of my tests show that I'm not infected. Do I need to test anymore? Cuz i read online that people taking pep may need as long as 6 months or even a year to get a conclusive result, Is that right? And why am I keeping having these symptoms that seem can't be treated, because all the medicine I'm taking seem not working at all. I'm so confused and stressed. Please help me with my questions.
Thanks for reading and answering in your busy schedule, and sorry for writing so long.

Hi, so a few months ago, I was visiting another city. While taking a walk with my friends we noticed a homeless man who was about to fall over, so my friend quickly went to go help him stand up and sit down on a bench. Meanwhile I saw that the man had left his belongings on the ground, including a plastic bag. As I grabbed the plastic bag to give it to the man, with my hands, I noticed a sharp sensation in a few places in my hand, like needle pricks. I opened the bag and saw needle syringes scattered with tissues. My hand was also bleeding in maybe 3 spots. I never made the connection that this was a risk, as I just assumed it was for diabetes or something, and just cleaned my hands and went on without more thought.
However, I recently read about the risks of needle pricks, and am now highly worried I was exposed to something like HIV.
Do you think there was any risk?
