HIV transmission through sharing a joint

Hi, Actually Im worried about the scenario that happened with me. So me and my buddy were sharing a joint together and my buddy is sexually very active and had sex with a lot of strangers so I don’t know if he’s HIV positive or not. Actually what happened was that we were in the car and he ignited the joint and took 4-5 puffs from it and then passed it to me right away . I smoked a lot instantly and then same thing passed it to him he smoked and finally I finished the joint. after that we went home and I saw that my buddy has a cut on his lip with blood on it. moreover he might have cuts or sores in his mouth and blood from his lips or mouth may have got onto the joint while sharing the joint back and forth twice and entered in my mouth when I smoked the joint. Thing is I have bleeding gums and blood from the joint may have came in contact with my gums and entered in my bloodstream. My gums doesn’t bleed profusely but still bleeds sometimes here and there. so my question is what are the chances of getting HIV from the scenario explained? Im really really really worried.

Nicked vulva while sharing a shaving razor?

Would it be possible to contract HIV if I used a shaving razor after someone else of an unknown HIV status, and ended up nicking my vulva (as it's a mucous membrane)? Would it be protected because it's superficial wound? I am mostly worried because I don't know how much time passed between the individual using it and me using it after they had, and if I am more at risk if the razor cut was on my vulva/genitals.

Please, please help to ease my anxieties. Thank you.

HIV through sharing a razor?

Hi,

I'm really anxious. About 10 years or so ago, my brother used my razor without telling me. I then proceeded to use the razor in the shower. I don't know if there was any blood on the razor, but I did cut/nick myself and had some sores from shaving. I don't know how much time passed between him and me using the razor, either, but I've been so anxious about it ever since. It doesn't help that there are conflicting reports on websites, from articles and doctors alike, whether sharing razors can transmit HIV.

If his blood had been on the razor and I then nicked myself (I was using it to shave my genitals, to make matters worse), would it be possible to contract HIV?

Unprotected Sex

Good afternoon, My case is as follow, I am a man an I had sex with a prostitute and the condom broke, I realized until we finished the intercourse. I got nervous and asked her to show me her HIV tests, she showed me, but the one was from 3 months ago and the result was NON-REACTIVE, I told her it was too old, so I asked her to go with me to a health center and perform an updated HIV test, she accept. The test was done and the result was likewise NON-REACTIVE. I was investigating post-exposure prophylaxis and as I found, in my country they do not apply it if the result of the test has been NEGATIVE (NON-REACTIVE). This is correct? I mean, can I be sure that she does not have HIV and therefore could not have infected to me? Beforehand thank you very much.

Got a bite on chest over my pimple

I went for a party and lady bite on my chest . I did a ELFA test 4th generation. Am i at risk?

Please answer me! Am I at risk for hiv?

Hi,
I sent a question in recently but noticed it was not answered and I was hoping someone could please answer my question. I am worried about a bottle of lubricant I have that I am scared someone contaminated. I am worried that someone may have used a needle that is used for injecting (filled it up with bodily fluids, blood or sperm) and injected into my lubricant bottle. Then when I had sex my boyfriend used some lube and placed it on his penis and then in my vagina and I am worried that if someone did contaminate my lubricant by injecting bodily fluids in it, could hiv live in the bottle of lubricant and then infect me the way that I described? The person that I am worried about used to be a drug user and alcoholic and they were at my house as a guest and now I am worried for some reason that they went into my room and found my lubricant and injected something into it. I don't know why I am thinking like that probably because I am being irrational but I was wondering if that is a way of transmission and if this is something I need to be worried about? I am also worried that they touched my insulin needles that I use to inject insulin in my cat and am worried they did something to them. I accidentally poked myself prior to injecting insulin into my cat with one of my (new needles) that I am worried what if this person contaminated my needles.. They do have access to needles because they use them on their own diabetic cat and of course they were a drug user. Anyway do I need to be worried now about hiv or am I sounding irrational? Please tell me the truth. Can you catch hiv in any of the scenarios I asked and do you think I need to throw away the bottle of lube now and should not use it? Keep in mind this person as far as I know did not go into my room and opening up drawers to find this bottle of lube that I know of but for some reason my mind is worried that they did this. Please let me know if I am at risk? Can hiv live in bottles of lube that have a cap? Do you think I need to be worried that they found my cats insulin needles and started poking themselves with them or injecting bodily fluids into them with the hope that I accidentally poke myself or do I sound really irrational? I never saw them going through any of my stuff including touching my cats insulin needles that I actually hid because I knew they were coming over and I just forgot to hide the lube bottle but that was away in my room in a drawer but I did not see them or anyone go upstairs. Please answer me as soon as possible! Am I at risk, should I throw away my lube, do you think my cats insulin needles are contaminated? Sorry for the questions I am really stressed out.

Blood in my mouth during Rugby tour

I went on the rugby pitch when one of my teammates got a small amount of blood in my mouth. A few days later I have a sore throat and possibly some other symptoms. From what I know he doesn't have the virus, and we were partying pretty hard while we were there. Is it possible to contract hiv through the blood of someone who doesn't have it?

Oral sex and semen on eye, rash 9 days later.

I had a sexual encounter with a 70 yo gay male, although he said he was clean I know I should trust nobody, there was no actual penetration although I did rub my penis over his anus, I also performed oral sex to him but he didn't cum into my mouth but there was some pre cum as far I can remember, so around 5 seconds later he ejaculated, he put his genitals on my face and there was still some semen on his penis that rubbed my eye. Considering all these sexual activities, what's the risk of contracting HIV? Should I get worried? I'm actually worried now because 9 days later after the sex I'm getting a rash on my feet, thinking could be athlete's foot but now with the sexual encounter I had, I'm freaking out could be something else, as rashes are common symptoms for HIV . Last question, when is the best time to get tested? Should I wait a couple of months? Thank you very much.

Breast being sucked and HIV Risk

Dear Expert,

I had a sexual activity with a man who may be HIV+, he only sucked and licked both my breast for about 5 minutes. His sucking action is rather aggressive. Is there any risk that I may be infected by HIV assuming there was no visible trauma to my breast? Are there any cases where a woman can be infected by this sexual activity. I could not find any similar case in your archives, most were men asking about HIV risk if they sucked a woman's breast. Thank you and hope to hear from you soon.
