3 Months ago i started having a reddish rash (no warts or sores) on my face, over the cheeks area. I went to the doctor and he suggested getting some exams, i got tested for HIV, Chlamydia and Syphilis and the last one came out positive (1:32)
After the exams i got 3 shots of penicillin with the last one being applied by January 2nd. After that i haven't had any follow up exams until last week that i took the VDRL and it came out (1:32) reactive again.
Does that mean the penicillin didn't work?
PS: i haven't had any sexual activity in the past 4 months
Please help. i had unprotected sex with sex worker. Did an hiv rapid determine antibody test 6 weeks 5 days after PEP completion (10 weeks 5 days post exposure) which came back negative. But am worried of the oral thrush and ulcers on my tongue. Could this be seroconversion? Can i rely on my negative test results?
Did hiv various survive in tattoo ink for one week
I am here for support as I have never been in a relationship or know of any one that has had HIV. I know that I love this person. But I don't want to go though the relationship with all these Questions. First about me that I have never been diagnosed with anything and have only had two sexual partners my whole life.
The Woman that I meet is from Colombia and she was diagnosed with HIV back in 2013. Since then has been "undetectable" for 3-4 years. What I know is that she has been on medicine since the start (2013) and has been told that she is able to have children (by Columbia doctors) (2019). She has had unprotected sex with her ex-partner and there was never contagion.
This will sound stupid and I know, I am sure someone else has ask this.
But is there any risk for me being with a undetectable HIV partner?
Eating food together (sharing),
Contact between broken skin (wounds)
safe vaginal or anal sex or Unprotected Sex
If we do go ahead with relationship How often should I get tested?
Is there any help for traveler coming to Vancouver?
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.
Few days ago I had a protected sex with a woman she probably takes drugs. It was protected insertive sex and inserted protected oral sex, I was little bit drunk but I'm not sure if the condom was applied properly but as long as remember was on all the time and did not slip or broke. Also I did a bit of fingering so is it possible to transmit HIV or any other STIs? Thank for answer
I took a HIV 4th gen test 43 days post PEP. The test was negative. Do I need to test more or Is this conclusive?
Hi, Took PEP for 28 days. Source was negative at 29th day (DUO test and Proviral DNA Test). I am negative as of 68 days (DUO Test). I was tested negative on 7, 10, 21 and 45 th day using Proviral DNA and 51 days using PCR RNA test. Am i risk free now?
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)
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.
