Hand Injury At Work Risk Assessment

Hi. I recently injured my finger at work. The cut is not deep but not superficial either. It was bleeding quite a bit. My coworker rushed me to another room and then simply grabbed a clean tissue from the lobby and gently put it on my finger to make it stop bleeding and also using it as a bandage. He just put the tissue on my finger. He didn't press or directly touched my finger.

Was this situation a potential risk for HIV and Hep C transmission knowing that he did touch the tissue before putting on my finger and my finger was still bleeding at that time? I carefully watched his hands/finger and saw no blood on the tissue whatsoever but I am still really concerned about what happened.

Thank you.

Blood on toilet seat

Hi,

I hope I can get some reassurance on this matter. Last Friday, I entered a female bathroom cubicle as soon as someone else vacated it and I neglected to check if there was anything on the toilet seat before sitting down to urinate. When I got up, I noticed there were some dried red stains on the seat which may or may not be blood. I'm now afraid that I might have actually sat on fresh blood and the reason why I didn't see the liquid blood was because my buttocks might have rubbed up against it. I was wondering if there was any risk HIV transmission from this action. I didn't check if I had any cuts on the part my buttocks that came into contact with the blood but I would think if there was a deep, open wound that was gushing with blood I'd have felt some sort of pain but I didn't. Was wondering if the HIV virus could be contracted from superficial fresh cuts coming into contact with fresh blood on a surface (this would be the worst case scenario in my situation). Would really appreciate a response on this and whether I need to get myself tested.

Thanks!

Would I have a significantly high risk of being positive from unprotected sex?

Due to unfortunate decisions in my life, I had unprotected sex with a much older man who claimed to only have had 2 previous partners (they were both virgins). I live in a country where everyone is checked for HIV before being able to renew their residency and are deported if found positive. However, this man was illegally here and so was not checked for HIV. I had no other intercourse. This was 2 years ago and I am due for a HIV check tomorrow, I am worried if i am infected i would be deported and this is causing me great concern especially since i am 18 and come from a very strict family. What are my risks?

cum on stomach and chest with superficial cuts

Hello, the other day I hooked up a someone with oral sex and he came on my stomach. I did not feel any sting like if a normal wound get in contact with any liquid. I cleaned up, and then I notice there were some small red cuts on my skin, but they were not bleeding. Is that a risk?

Is it possible after 14 years?

Hi, I´m from Brazil. Sorry about my lame english. you may not believe what happen to me.

I justa found out that an old girlfriend that I had 14 years ago has HIV.

After I found out I´ve got really scared.

Now I´m feeling some fever and having some rashes on my body.

Before I do my hiv test (I´m going to do sooner) I did my CBC test. and... everything was completely normal: red blood cells, white blood cell, platelets. everything.

I have 2 doubts for you guys:

1 - Is it possible to have HIV for 14 years without treatment and my CBC is still completely normal? shouldn´t I be anemic, at least?

2 - I used to wear a condom with her, but I used to do cuniligus on her. what are the odds that I have become HIV+ on that time?

Cigarette Burn!

Hi,

I know there are more question about this but with a lot of factors, I only want to ask if a stranger in a bar burn me with a cigarette in my hand it's possible to get infected.

Thank You

Chaffing and Dirty Toilet Seats

Hello,
About a week ago I went out to a LGBT dance event. I was pretty drunk and decided to go to the bathroom. I usually squat and try to avoid sitting on the toilet seat before I go, but this night I was too drunk to do that. I also do not remember how the toilet seat looked (if it was wet, dirty, etc.). I had pretty bad chafing on my thighs from all the dancing and sat down on the toilet like that. Do I pose any risk in getting HIV or any other STI? I'm going in for my regular testing in less than a week, is it too early to detect HIV or STI's?
Thank you so much!

Can I get HIV from blood stain?

Hello, Please I would like my question to be answered soon as I am so scared to death. I was with this new girl 2 weeks ago now. We had protected sex with my condom properly worn. The light was off, and after I removed the condom also properly, I jerked myself off to cum. I switched on the light and realized she had a tear, and I was stained with her blood on my groin. The stain has occured I removed the condom, which means I had masturbated with the blood. Please can I get infected wth hiv through this if she is positive, cos she didnt know her status. Please answer, I'm so scared to dealth right now..Thanks.

Watching Porn Videos HIV

Can I get HIV and AIDS if I watch porn on my IPad?

Could I get HIV from getting cum on cut?

I bite my nails a lot and I tore skin off a few days ago and the day after I gave my boyfriend a handjob and he got cum on my thumb. I washed it off 1-2 minutes later; the place where I tore the skin off at is small but it was red and I don't think it was healed, it kind of looked like it was open. After I washed it off the area bled a bit. My boyfriend assures me he doesn't have HIV, but we don't know until his test comes back. Am I at risk if he has HIV??
