Thank you in advance for your support. This morning I had sex with a girl I've been dating for 2 weeks and the condom broke. She did an HIV test on Apr 20 resulting negative.
I already went to the hospital and consulted a doctor which first suggested to do the PEP (the girl had many partners before) and then recommended to just get her to test today. The doctor said if she's negative today there's no need for me to do the PEP as with 2 negative tests in a month the risk of being infected would be very very low (0.001%) even in the case she had sex with other partners while she was dating with me.
I got tested today and I'm HIV negative and I'm taking her to test in 3 hours. If she's negative I won't take the PEP pills. If she's positive I will. What do you guys think about this?
I had an exposure , due to a broken condom during the vaginal sex with CSW.
I had tested for HIV 4th generation / DUO test after 6 weeks & 10 weeks.
Both the results came as Negative (NonReactive) .
This is my only exposure.
How conclusive are my results?
Can they change between 10th week & 12th week?
Could you please help me with my anxiety.
I had an exposure 6 times on two consective days. Unprotected virginal sex. I took PEP for 28 days which i started within 72hours. I took HIV duo test at 14 weeks 1 day post PEP (18 weeks 2 days post exposure) which came out non reactive (0.02). I also took Hepatitis C rapid antibody test at 122 days post exposure and it was negative. The problem is that i have been having oral thrush for almost 3 months now. Can i rely on my results or should i wait for six months in case of delayed seroconversion? Is my hepatitis C result also conclusive? Am really scared please help. By the way the baseline HIV antibody test for both me and the lady i had sex with was negative but to rule out possibility of window period i took PEP.
I had an exposure of penis head entering twice in my anus for just 10-20 seconds. No ejaculation, just pre-cum.
I got scared and was on PEP for 30 days. I got tested today exactly at 6 weeks or 42 days post pep with 2 HIV tests, one was Rapid uni-gold HIV test and rapid Alere Determine Ag/Ab 4th generation HIV test at the same clinic. both came out negative at 6 weeks post pep. I was wondering will this testing shows that i am negative and what are my chances at 3 month testing ? I know post pep guideline says 3 months testing. i was just nervous and got tested at 6 weeks. And do i also need a 6 months test ? Thanks
**** Unprotected sex with prostitute. after 135 days antigan & antibody test negative (CMIA =value 0.42) Do I need to test more or Is this conclusive?
I have a bit of anxiety and really need to know what my odds are. I have been doing everything in my life to ensure I maintain my status negative so here are the details
I started prep on the 18th of March 2019 and I had sex with someone that was HIV positive undetectable on the 30th of March 2019. I know he is Undetectable because he was kind enough to take the effort in showing me his most recent results that were on 19th Of march 2019 he showed me the medication he takes and he confessed to me that he had been positive for 6 years and that he has mainted a viral load less than 20 copies. I am also on prep and have taken it the same time every day up to this point I even took an extra one after I found all this out. Yesterday. I was the top and sex wasn't out of the Norm and I am certain of his undetectable status and saw the medication that he takes. He even sent me a copy of those results from the lab. What is my level of risk? If someone whom is hiv positive undetectable with a viral load of less than 20 copies, has unprotected anal sex with someone who is HIV negative and has been taking prep for 2 weeks?
Please help me ease my anxiety, I refrained from treating him badly because he is a kind person and plus he looks really healthy! not only did he show me the proof but it is evident from how he looks! I would defiantly consider taking things farther with him but I need the facts and the education of what my risk will be even under these; what I consider, to be optimal circumstances. where he and I have open communication and he is being forthcoming and honest.
Do these factors put me at risk for getting HIV?
I had sexual intercourse with sex worker which I think might be HIV positive, We had vaginal intercourse with condom but my concern is that I had made cut on the base of the penis just one and half hour before the sex which bled for half a minute and then stopped bleeding.During the vaginal intercourse this cut was not covered by the condom and was exposed to the vaginal fluid.
What is the risk of transmission through this non bleeding cut???
Symptoms that I am experiencing are:
On the second day of the sex I had a high fever along with slight headache and chronic fatigue which lasted for one and half week. On the beginning of the second week I am suffering from white tongue and slight sore throat along with mouth ulcers but no other symptoms except tiredness.I am feeling thirsty more than usual and moreover I wake up at night to drink water due to thirst.I am feeling really stressed and anxious.
Do my symptom are related to HIV.
Today I met a guy online and we agreed we would meet for sex (I'm also male) Even before meeting, I inisted that we would be using condoms. At some point, after we touched and kissed, he sat on me, and rubbed my penis between his buttcheeks. I told him again, if he wanted to go ahead, that we would need a condom. He told me he was just teasing, and that there would be no actual penetration. Yet at some point I did feel my penis head stretching his anus, maybe even penetrating him with just the head, I can't be sure. I asked him to stop immediately and he did.
Later on, he was moving his penis near my anus, he was saying again : "I'm just teasing, I'm not penetrating". Yet at some point I definitely felt his penis head stretching my anus. That's when I said : "Ok, this is too much, either put on a condom or go". He finally put on the condom.
I'd like to know what risk there is for HIV transmission in these circumstances. I'd also like to know if such an exposure would warrant PEP.
Also, as a side note, I would like to mention how I'm sick and tired that even though I am always extremely clear about wanting to have protected sex, guys often seem to try, at some point, either to penetrate me without a condom or have me penetrate them without a condom. It's like the pressure of minimizing transmission risks always fall on my shoulders only, and I have to be careful not to have too much fun, because I need to stay alert in case the guy I'm with tries doing something to me without protection. I find this to be an utter lack of respect.
Thank you for your time.
I had sex with someone on Dec 20 and the condom broke in between. I only realized after finishing. I started PEP in less than 48 hours and took it for 30 days. I tested at 42 days after exposure (11 days after PEP completion) the test was negative. The test I used was HIV CMIA (p24 and Antibody). I took another test (HIV CMIA serum) at 60 days after exposure (29 days after PEP completion) which was also negative
My question is this:
1. Are these test results encouraging?
2. I am planning to take another test at 42 days after PEP completion (74 days after exposure). Have you ever seen post pep test at 28 days turn positive in the future?
I have read on the Internet that HIV 4th gen test are conclusive at 6 weeks by expert. So if my test at 74 days (10 weeks and 4 days after exposure or 42 days after PEP completion) is negative. Can I consider this conclusive?
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
