HIV Testing

risk of transmission?

hi
I just got tested for HIV in a HIV specific lab. now im worry if there is a risk of transmission since only HIV+ people get tested there. should I start PEP?
she used new syringe and latex cloves, but she touched and tied the armband (while latex was worn) before wiping my skin with a piece of cotton and alcohol (possibly)
thank you

Do I need a further Test?

I had a encounter of mutual masturbation, where I fingered the lady and then masturbated self with Vaginal Fluid on my fingers and that fluid may have came in contact with my Penis.

I had SERUM HIV(I & II)AG/AB( Combo) Test with Method : Chemiluminescent Immunoassay on day 15th and Day 29th and both the results are as under:

15th Day: 0.24 S/Co : Non Reactive
29th Day: 0.11 S/Co : Non Reactive

1. Can I Conclude that I am not infected on the basis of the Test results?
2. Is the above mentioned test 4th generation?
3. If I need to take the same test for a conclusive result, when should I take it again?

Thanks in advance for your knowledge sharing and support.

Hiv CMIA test negative 29 days after PEP completion

Hi,

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?

Rapid antibody test at 8 weeks

I had a hiv rapid antibody test with a prick on my finger at 8 weeks after the exposure. I want to know if the results are reliable with this type of tests at 8 weeks or if the result can change at 3 months.
Thank you

Frottage - Straight male

Dear Helpline,

thanks for your engagement and help, regarding insecure individuals in this regard - just like me. I slept with a Girl twice (protected), received oral (no visible blood), handjob (doubt there were vaginal fluids on her hands) and there was some unprotected contact between my penis and her vagina (no penetration, but rubbing of the top of my penis against her vagina). Do any of these actions require testing/pose a risk? Especially the latter?

I really appreciate your feedback. Thanks!

Circumcised pennis- inner skin tear while hand relief

Hello There,

I have been circumcised 3 months back. I went to this massage place and at the end she gave a hand relief, later I noticed there is an extra skin which got torn and small blood has come out. The lady also has small cut on her hand, Two weeks later I am experiencing Fatigue, Fever, Swollen nodes(pain comes and goes). I have tested -ve at 18 day mark, but my symptoms have been there for 2 weeks now. I am scared to death now.. I am really worried, I feel like killing myself... Please advise am I at a greater risk because I am circumcised and the skin which tore was under pennis glan ?

Risk of Getting HIV

On 31st Jan I met with a lady and unaware aware of the HIV status of her. That day all that happened as below

1. No penetration or intercourse to her vagina by me.
2. I fingered her vagina and my fingers got wet with her vaginal fluid. And without washing my hand I did musterbate.
3. She licked my penis but it was not a blowjob. Without condom.
4. We both sucked each others nipples.

Is there any chance of me getting HIV if she was infected?

Is there any chance of getting infection if she licks on newly healed wounded portion but without blood?

Is there any chance of getting infection if vaginal fluid comes in contact with newly healed wounded portion but without blood?

Further, on 7th feb,
1. I got my right ear swelling with pain inside the ear. Left ear is normal.
2. None of the lymph nodes are found swelling.
3. Gradually the swelling is gone and now the earlobe got little bit swelling not noticeable easily.

4. On 13th Feb night I feel little swell or numbness in my lower lip.After two days its reducing and only visible if one looks very closely.

5. On 14th Feb I feel little swell or numbness in my upper lip. Its only visible if one looks very closely.

Does these indicate HIV infection?

I have done the HIV Test today i.e. 15th Day (SERUM HIV(I & II)AG/AB( Combo)
Method : Chemiluminescent Immunoassay) and the result is non reactive. I had data of my past HIV test done as a part of my routine test in 2016. It was the same method. At that time the result was 0.09 S/CO. Now it is 0.24 S/CO. It is increasing.
Does it mean that I am infected and antibodies are growing gradually?
Do I need another test for Conclusion or this can be treated as Conclusive Test?

cum in contact with skin

so about a month ago i hooked up with another guy. we mainly just kissed, and his penis was in my mouth but there was no cum that i recall that i had in my mouth. when he cummed it got on the skin on my leg, but i saw no cuts on any kind on it. my question is this a risk at all with cum on the skin with cuts?

HIV risk through oral sex

7 months ago, I had two one night stands with two different girls( a bout a month apart) while I was in Texas. Now I'm worried that I might have HIV. I don't recall cuts on my penis and both gave me a blowjob and I only fingered them. I already had a test done two months ago and it reads that I'm HIV negative but it also said that the reason that it read negative was that it was too soon( 6 months was recommended). I feel fine except for this Streep throat that has reoccurred twice in the past three months and severe anxiety as the result of my fear. Could reoccurring Streep throat be an indicator of HIV infection? Do I need to go back and get tested to put this to rest?
