I was on the bottom and other guy was playing and rubbing his penis on my anus, my anus was lubed with spit and had lot of his pre-cum around my anus. I am extremely worried about this incident, we stopped immediately after him inserting his penis tip into me twice.
Please let me know what should i do ? PEP warranted ?
He said he is safe HIV neg. but i don't if i should trust.
extremely worried, please help! Thanks
I have unprotected vaginal intercourse with a sex worker. I am very regret on what i did and after 62 hours i am on the PEP medication. Throughout the PEP medication, i am having the side effects like nausea & dizziness almost everyday until now (24th post exposure). I have taken a 4th generation HIV combo rapid test with Alere HIV combo. The result came out negative. Would the result be accurate enough? I am having serious anxiety and go to different doctors everyday. Please help
Yesterday I had unprotected sex with lady I met in the club, next day I asked her to come with me to do HIV test 4th generation, The her result was negative.
I’m still worried, Do I need to do test after one month?
Thank you for your support and advice.
Had unprotected sex got tested 4 times.
On 29th unclear result
On 44th negative
On 91th negative
And on 189th negative
The thing is that i really doubt all the 3 negative tests because of the unclear test result. How come i tested unclear and then became negative? Is it false negative? Have you seen a case of someone taking more than 6 months to detect hiv antibodies? Do i need more testing?
i had an unprotected anal sex with a gay ( me insertive partner) whose status unkown . i had a p24 antigen antibody test negative at 39 days and 67 days after exposure .Is my result conclusive or i need to retest again at 84 days .Please advice
I had one unprotected vaginal sexual exposure with a girl. Next day after exposure, we went to a clinic to test. I knew my results won't be accurate but I just wanted to know her HIV status. Clinicians used Alere Determine HIV1/2 Ag/Ab test and she was negative. I also tested with Alere after 50 days and with 4th generation lab test after 60 days. Both were negative.
What I'm worried is, she said she had relationships with African people nearly 2-3 years ago. I know that some African people has HIV-2 type of virus, different than HIV-1. I wonder if she was HIV-2 positive, does this means a prolonged window period? Basically, does HIV-2 has different window period than HIV-1? I searched some articles but I couldn't find exact reports. Alere Determine doesn't have any HIV-2 spesific antigen detection so there needs to be established HIV-2 infection to detect antibodies. But I do not know what is the maximum window period to establish HIV-2 antibodies. I'd be so glad If you can help me.
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.
hi. i had a very short (less than 30 seconds) vaginal sex with a female sex worker. i did instant hiv test after 14 weeks and the result was negative. As i'm so stressed, i'm wondering if i need to repeat the test again or it's conclusive already?
Good afternoon, My case is as follow, I am a man an I had sex with a prostitute and the condom broke, I realized until we finished the intercourse. I got nervous and asked her to show me her HIV tests, she showed me, but the one was from 3 months ago and the result was NON-REACTIVE, I told her it was too old, so I asked her to go with me to a health center and perform an updated HIV test, she accept. The test was done and the result was likewise NON-REACTIVE. I was investigating post-exposure prophylaxis and as I found, in my country they do not apply it if the result of the test has been NEGATIVE (NON-REACTIVE). This is correct? I mean, can I be sure that she does not have HIV and therefore could not have infected to me? Beforehand thank you very much.
Dear AIDS Vancouver,
Thank you very much for all your help and for replying to all the questions.
I am a 29 year old gay male, and I had sex on the 26th of October, where I was the insertive partner. However, the condom broke just at the beginning, and I have noticed it only 30 seconds after it broke, after which I have pulled out (I am also circumcised). The next day (29hrs later) I went to the hospital and got PEP. Immediately after starting taking PEP, I got a red sun-burn-like rash under my armpit and belly and legs, and I went back to the hospital and they replaced the regimen Ive got with Descovy and Rezolsta that I am using now. I know it couldnt have been ARS as it was a day after exposure.
Later on around the 6th day I got a slight cold and fever, which disappeared quickly.
On the 10/11th day I developed a maculopapular rash all over my shuoulders, neck, a bit on my back and chest, it was horrible, amd a fever. I went back to the hospital on the 11th day and they did an RNA test which came back negative.As soon as I got the results my rash and my fever disappeared.
On the 15th day I started getting chills and a fever all of a sudden in the evening (38,8), which subsided the next morning, but I started sweating all the time, especially in the evenings, I am having nightsweats for 2 days now.
I am on the 17th day now post exposure and PEP, and I am terrified.
Can you please tell me how big was my risk to start with, if the guy was positive? Could all of these be ARS? And could the RNA test taken 11 days post exposure be a false negative due to the PEP medication I was taking (because I have read somewhere online from some doctors who have been replying to others, that PEP can cause a false negative RNA?). But then again, can one have ARS symptoms if the viral load is undetectable?
Many many thanks!
