Hello good day! I'm from Brazil! Forgive me my weak English!
I had a high-risk exposure in which the condom was disrupted in vaginal sex. The girl I related was at the end of my period, but I did not notice visible blood on my penis. When I realized that I had broken I took it off and immediately went to wash. After 10 days of the act I began to feel symptoms that until the present date permance. The symptoms were: oral ulcers, rash, pharyngitis, shivering, body aches and pains, lack of appetite, white tongue, nail fungus, rough nails, peeling of hands and feet, nausea and vomiting, weight loss. I tested with RNA PCR and elisa 4th generation with 20, 33, 50, 70 and 80 and 90 days and gave undetectable and negative. I did another 120 day test and it turned out to be negative. I called the partner to test and she tested with a quick test on the 100 day mark and a 3rd generation Elisa in 120 days and she also came out negative. But I still have symptoms like white tongue, white throat secretion, rash and itching through the body. I am not satisfied with the test, as I fear late seroconversion. What advice can you give me? Thank you very much.

I am a Canadian working in Beijing. On june 24, 2018, I ordered an outcall services, and the girl gave me an oral sex for a short while followed by protected vaginal sex (she sat on me). I think the condom did not break (my "stuff" was not leaking out, so I assume it was intact) but the condom used was not any international brand that I am familiar with.
On Agust 24 2018, I found a massage parlor and tried the service. First, it was just unprotected oral sex. And somehow I thought this girl was safe, and decide to do unprotected oral sex + protected vaginal (she sat on me) on August 29.
During September, I visited the massage parlor for another two times. On September 7th, I did unprotected oral sex only. On September 30, I did unprotected oral sex and protected vaginal sex (I inserted into her).
At first, I was not so worry about these encounters as I had used condom for all of the vaginal sexes, and I did not experience any symptom (no diarrhea lasting for more than a day, no rash, no fever, no sore throat etc;). Additionally, for all the vaginal sexes I couldn't get very hard and ejaculate after 20-30 seconds or even shorter. The outcall girl's boss told me that the girl is clean and the massage girl told me that she got check regularly.
Recently I read a news about the number of HIV paitent in China that has increased rapidly during the third quarter, which made me start to worry and led me to here. Now I am worrying about the condoms I used were not effective as they are some unknown chineses brand brand and somehow these encounters could accumulate (it sounds super stupid).
My current concerns are 1)the condom could be fake and it did not work though it covered my penis 2) the condom could have little hole that vaginal fluid can come through. Can you tell me what are the chance of getting hiv if my concerns were real.
I've already booked a body check this weekend, but start having imagination of getting a positive report back. I understand that you get questions like this a lot, and I apologise. I just want have some professional opinions regarding the chance of having negative report so that I can wait for my report more peacefully.
A worry paranoid
About a 3 months ago I had unprotected sex with several partners. Also oral sex, ı both received and gave. I did not know their STD or HIV status. Two weeks ago I had something like blister, papilla or pimple showed up my vagina and increased it was painful at the beginning. I've seen gynocologist and she told me I don't have any warts or herpes with physical examination. I am still waiting for pap smear test results. However, a week ago I had swollen lymph nodes on my throat. And later my gums started to swollen. Now I have problems with my gingival and worried about gingivities. I had open sores on my mouth, cheeks when I had oral sex. I am so worried abput all STD's or HIV. I already tested and waiting for the results. But these symptoms are raising every day and I am really worried.
Should I really worry about the hiv possibility, and do these symptoms look like hiv?
Thank you so much for your answer, I appreciate it very much.
I had an exposure 2 months ago. I did full std tests with 4th gen hiv duo test wrfx at 10, 37; and 47 days. I got results of last back today. All negative. Is this enough to take as conclusively negative? I am so confused and worried. Thank you for any response. My depression has me feeling desperate and wanting to give up
I want to ask you some questions. I was wondering about transmission trought kissing. I know, that it's like a no risk activity, even if there are blood from HIV positive person and just small cuts in mouth of HIV negative person, is that right? Because everywhere you wrote, that HIV needs to be transmited into bloodstream of HIV negative person, so trought some really big cuts, that have HIV negative person and that needs stitches? Or for example after some dentist's surgery, right? Not just trought some small cuts, hardly noticeable? Please, answer to all my questions. Thank you!
i recently got into a relationship with a lady i did not know of her HIV status. we eventually had an vaginal sex (with no condom). i was very worried though she told me not to that she was sure that she is negative. but out of fear, i went to my clinic and i was given PEP treatment at about 40 hrs post exposure.
the relationship continued and we had another sex 6 days after i started PEP. i was not a brief sex at all and i ended up having some injury on my penis as a result of the activity.
I almost discontinued the PEP, but asked her to just do the HIV test, and it came out positive. i was shocked!!!!!
i have not had any rashes, fever, sore throat and all that except jaundice, nausea and severe weakness once i take the drug.
i experienced an unexplained burning sensation,needle like pricks and colicky pain in and on my penis and my scrotum. sometimes i feel like something wants to come out but nothing comes out of my penis. this started about two weeks after exposure. but no discharge nor sore nor rash around my perineum nor inguinal area.
all STI screening i did were negative and i had to take treatment for STI just in case ( this was my decision).
i have completed my pep and got tested again at day 33 post exposure and day 30 on pep and im still negative.
i was placed on LAMIVUDINE AND TENOFOVIR + ATAZANAVIR AND RITONAVIR.
my questions are
1) will my second exposure limit the efficacy of PEP?
2) should i have extended my PEP to 6 more days.?
3) are those symptoms i had possibly due to seroconversion?
4) is my current negative result encouraging?
thanks a lot for your anticipated prompt response. i am honestly scared.
also, i just got an antibody test approximately 2 months post pep and 3 months post exposure. it came negative. i don not know what to make out of this as my symptoms still persist. my palms and sore of my feet are peeling of now. my bones ache and i am tired like my soul is out of my body. i need help please
I went to laboratory to do a conclusive hiv test(3 months) on 17th of September 2018 after the last protected sex I had on 1 July 2018. But When I got to the lab that day the lab girl wore a dirty handglove to gently massage my thumb before piercing it with finger prick needle. And I suspected she might have used the handglove on previous people before me. After the rapid finger prick hiv test it came out negative.
2weeks later I had a diarrhea for a day and that made me to go back to the lab girl to complain to her that I might have contacted an infection by that massaging of my thumb with dirty handglove she did before pricking my thumb but she insisted she didn't use a dirty handglove on me. After about 3weeks after the incident I started having rashes on my chest, shoulder & back and I went for widal test they said I have typhoid though I wasn't down with the typhoid yet, I started treatment thinking the rashes was caused by typhoid but it didn't go away... I had hiv test at 5 weeks after that incident and it was negative but I am still having rashes.
Pls can I get infected assuming there's hiv on that handglove she wore to massage my thumb before piercing it to collect my blood sample for the finger prick test?.
N.b. she wasn't wearing the handglove before I came but she wore the handglove after I entered the lab for the test... though I am now confused whether she had used it on other previous people before wearing it again to use it on me.
Hi, I am deeply concerned about the HIV test that I gave blood for currently. Totally paranoid, can't sleep and symptoms match so perfectly I have given up any hope for negative result. I had a protected vaginal intercourse and an unprotected oral sex from an escort in the middle of august. In the month of September I noticed my lipomas increasing on my body. One grew on jawbone so I got it checked by a doctor and he suggested that was not lipoma but mostly swollen lymph node as it decreased in size as well that was early october (7 weeks). Then I got rash on my back like 2 cms which soothes when I apply cream. On middle of october I got annual blood word done and also took flu shot and tdap vaccine. I got very tired that weak, extreme fatigue. Met doctor again and she suggested wait a week if symptoms improve. It did not I got an ultrasound done end of october , it noticed enlarged liver but nothing else. first week of november (11 weeks), doctor suggested I take hiv test as symptoms are very similar to hiv, I am not waiting for results but completely losing my mind over being positive. More read online about symptoms mine match with most of them. I get joint pains, sometimes shortness of breath. I am not sure about escort's status but I am very much afraid whether I caught anything and gave it to my wife in september when there were no symptoms and since I had protected sex I did not even think about catching it. Of course I am waiting for my test results which it seems would take a week as they do both elisa and western blot, but I would like to know your opinion about my situation.
