HIV Testing

Was there a risk for me ? {I}F I put my hand into syringe drop box ?

This question might be quite weird to you!

But you know I'm the one who pick up things restlessly! So I'm {n}ot quite sure as to whether this scenario was happen to me in fact!

I do remember that around 7 years and 4 months ago in an airplane toilet I saw syringe drop box that was situated on the console of the toilet but I can't remember exactly whether I put my hand into that syringe drop box or not ????? Maybe it was just located there but I didn't do anything with it (I really hope I didn't!)

But what if I did ? Would there be any risk to me ?

Ps. I did some research on the internet that there's no one report for someone who was infected by HIV by pricking oneself with discarded syringe in US, Canada< UK or even Australia ????? Whether this will apply to my case or not ?

Deep tongue kissing and frothing (penis head touched my anus)

m4m interaction, i had deep kissing with lots of tongue exposure and he rimmed my ass for a while and place his cock on my anus (entry way) i was clenching my anal muscles so that no penetration could take place. i never bottomed and don't know how a cock feels when having anal intercourse. I am just worried that if this situation puts me at any risk ? will i know if he inserted his penis head in me ? Even though i was preventing him from doing so by not relaxing my anus. i am extremely worried. i travel a lot and the only test i can have is after 4 weeks and then i travel again. will this 4 weeks test which i will perform next month after this exposure due to time constraints, will it be a good indication of my status ? based on my exposures (it will be a 4th generation test). i know you guys says 6 weeks is conclusive but in my case ? Thank you for this great service.

HIV-2 Window Period

Hello.

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.

Thank you!

HIV OR NOT ?

Please help, I don’t know where to turn to next , getting hopeless. So this may be a little long. So almost 2 years ago I started dating a guy, I was in perfect health. After I started dating him, I started having burning when peeing that was the first symptom. Then muscle twitching , then severe Pelvic pain, follow by weak legs for a short time , eye pain, ear pain, loose stool for a short period of time, the since of being unwell. The muscle twitching seem to spread all over my body, my head, my hands, my arms everywhere you can think of. I had a sore throat at one point of time, heart palpations, tingling in feet and numbness in hands when I wake I have to shake it off . I also was having jerks , in my legs while awoke or when I’m on my way to sleep . I also had a few small rashes nothing too crazy

My boyfriend at the time told me his mom died from HIV but he was negative , which I thought he was as well cause we got tested together. Test was indeed negative. However , after I started to put all of this together, there was a common denominator after me getting sick and it was him. I also started to notice he was having muscle twitching just like I and or the same symptoms .

On top of this , I was tested for a year straight after possible exposure, all negative . After a year went to get a hiv test done again, antigen was weakly positive and the antibody was negative so I was asked to retest because of possible false positive.

Went back and had extensive blood work done, I repeated the same test, had a viral load test done and a pcr. All negative . It has been a year exactly since the ‘ false positive ‘ and I have been tested on 4 different occasions after that all negative , in fact all test are negative besides hsv 1

I have seen an infectious disease doctor for the hiv testing before, I have seen a allergy/immune doctor , a neurologist who didn’t do much testing. No one seems to find anything .

I’m concerned that I have a special strain, or something that’s not picking up.

I am in a new relationship, due to all the negative testing I have been having unprotected sex and I fear him ever having anything from me .

Would do you recommend?

ARS symptoms after PEP

6 weeks after l finished pep l developed flu-like symptoms such as intermittent fever(37.4'C) for a few days and feel fatigue till now.
My question is:
1) Can pep failed to protected me from hiv and l just have an ars?
2) Can intermittent low-grade fever is include in ars?

PS.l test negative immediately after finished pep.

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 :(

Should i Re-test after negative results from an instant HIV test?

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?
