HIV Transmission

HIV risk from grinding

Hie. Thank you so much for this platform. I have a very serious question. I met this girl. So one day she came over to my house, she was on her period. So we briefly kissed then afterwards. She sat on me and started grinding on my penis we were both fully clothed she was wearing a sanitary pad, underwear and dress and I was wearing my boxers and jeans. After a few minutes I decided I want to finger her. So as she undressed I didn't see any blood stain (from the period) on her panties but I did see her remove her sanitary pad. So I put on some latex glove and proceeded to do so. After fingering I noticed a little blood and vaginal fluid on the glove. I immediately stopped then removed the glove. I'm sure the glove didn't leak as I didn't see anything on my finger. Fast forward a few weeks later I woke up with a sore throat (no other symptoms) that only lasted that day. It was sore on the left side mostly but as the day progressed it ended. The next day I was fine, no other symptoms. My concerns about this very stupid incident are as follows:

1. Since she was having her period, when she grinded against me, could there have been some little at the back of her sanitary pad which would have seeped through her underwear, then her dress, then onto my jeans, then onto my boxers and found itself into one of my mucous membranes on my penis. I dont recall seeing any blood on my jeans but I dont remember.. I read somewhere that HIV cant be transmitted through clothing but is it possible that the little viral particles could have found their way through the pores of fabric and onto my penis?

2. I purchased the latex gloves from a pharmacy and they were in a plastic bag in my closet (which is cool). They never broke and I didnt see any liquid seep through. I remember on the finger I used to finger her I had a minor peeling on the eponychium (hangnail). It had been like that for many weeks, but there was no blood though.

3. The sore throat still worries me. It was the only symptom and only lasted a day. Could it have been ARS

My life has been a living nightmare ever since. I am so afraid all the time I could have been exposed, please help me. Should I get tested?

Scratch/Cut On Hand PLESE HELP -- I AM JUST A KID......

First and foremost .... I am sorry for Such a Long Question .... but I am still Just a KID ..... and VERY SCARED .....
My Anxiety is Now Going through the Roof ...... Please Help me Understand the Why's in this Situation ......NOBODY HAD TO HAVE SURGERY OR STITCHES ......

I have a question about our Co-Worker who is Openly HIv+
She has HIV

Simple -- The week we were putting up the Christmas Tree at Work ...... We bumped into each other and somehow he scratched me and I scratched him….. .... She scratches the bottom part of her wrist and her hand and I scratched the top of my hand ..... Her scratch is immediately bleeding and my scratch is immediately bleeding .......

But the fact is Her scratch on her wrist and hand is immediately bleeding and my scratch on the top of my hand is immediately bleeding ... So she reaches her hand up with the scratch that is immediately bleeding on it to say she is sorry…. and grabs my hand where it is immediately bleeding and she is now resting her immediately bleeding scratch on her wrist and hand against the immediately bleeding scratch on my elbow to say I'm sorry ..... Her scratch is directly contacting and lying on top my scratch for about 10 seconds or more as she says I’m sorry— So I pull my arm back quickly — but again …..

Now there is 10 or more seconds of full blown Immediate Direct Contact -- without Intervening steps — where these scratches are directly lying on top of each other

So immediately we get these scratches that are immediately bleeding she grabs my elbow holds it for 10 or more seconds to say Im sorry
— and his immediate bleeding scratch on her hand that is freshly bleeding is immediately directly
touching, directing contacting… touching and lying directly exactly where I just got a scratch at the exact same time that is freshly bleeding …..

So we are touching for 10 or more seconds…. The spot on her wrist and hand that is freshly bleeding is having full blown immediate direct contact to the scratch on the top of my hand that is freshly bleeding and I am having immediate direct contact (with no intervening steps) immediate direct exposure... 10 or more seconds of full blown immediate and direct exposure….. 10 or more seconds of full blown immediate direct contact …. 10 or more seconds of full blown immediate direct bodily access into my bodily system straight from the immediate fresh bleeding scratch on his hand onto and into me from the scratch on the top of my hand
with her fresh full blown hiv positively charged hiv+ infected fluids, with her fresh full blown hiv positively charged hiv+ blood , fresh full blown positively charged hiv+ hiv… immediately .. directly onto and into my
scratch on the top of my hand that is freshly bleeding from her freshly bleeding scratch on her wrist and hand for 10 or more seconds that is now going onto and into my bodily system … onto and into my body from this incident
No gloves No bandages on either of us — Bleeding Open skin on bleeding open skin… Bleeding open scratch on bleeding open scratch … bleeding open wound on bleeding open wound —
her new freshly bleeding hand now immediately
lying directly over, directly onto and immediately directly into… and directly
contacting … lying on my scratch on the top of my hand that stings and is freshly bleeding 10 or more seconds of continuous immediate direct contact of his on his hand scratch that is bleeding firmly gripping and
firmly shaking the top of my hand where both her hand that is freshly bleeding is
touching and directly contacting the exact same spot where I have a freshly bleeding top of my hand to say I’m sorry

So Again …..No gloves and No bandages are now having 10 or more seconds of immediate full blown direct exposure onto and into my body…

10 or more seconds of immediate full blown direct contact onto and into my body …
10 or more seconds of immediate full blown direct bodily access onto and into into my fresh bleeding scratch on the top of my hand onto and into my blood stream …. my bodily system my body from the fresh bleeding scratch on the bottom of her wrist and on her hand onto and with his
fresh full blown hiv positively charged hiv + infected fluids, her
fresh full blown hiv positively charged hiv + blood, his
fresh full blown hiv positively charged hiv+ hiv onto and into my body through the
fresh bleeding cut on the top of my hand from her fresh bleeding cut on her hand.

So I am having direct contact —hand scratch freshly bleeding lying directly
and having immediate direct contact on my freshly bleeding stingy scratch on the top of my hand .....

Both skin her and mine gets scratched at the same immediate time and freshly
bleeding … then less than 1 second goes by and ….. Skin to Skin….. Scratch to Scratch…. Wound to Wound — 10 or more seconds….4 seconds of immediate full blown direct contact into my body … and 10 or more seconds of immediate full blown direct bodily access into my bloodstream and my bodily system from the fresh bleeding scratch on the bottom of her wrist and her hand with his fresh full blown hiv positively charged hiv + infected fluids, her fresh full blown hiv positively charged hiv+ blood, her fresh full blown hiv positively charged hiv+ hiv onto and into my body through the fresh bleeding cut on the top of my hand from her fresh bleeding cut on the bottom of her wrist and on her hand. with a strong grippy firm tight ......completely direct contacted cut on cut 10 oo more second direct contact shake with and where both wounds are immediately directly touching and directly contacting each other with no intervening steps

With all this that just happened …. Even with this HIV+ person she has HIV.... HIV+ — Her viral load is the highest & strongest ever seen...... The Highest and Strongest HIV+ viral load in the World — Even with the strongest & highest viral load ever seen....... PLEASE HELP ME .......

So from her having a immediate fresh bleeding scratch on the bottom of her wrist and on her hand and I having a immediate fresh bleeding scratch on the top of my hand — onto and into my injuries for 10 or more seconds and now into my bloodstream and my body … into me into my bodily system …… All this full blown immediate direct contact and access of her HIV+ infected fluids, HIV+ infected blood and fully positively charged HIV.. HIV+ onto and into my immediate bleeding open bleeding cut and now into my bloodstream and bodily system — into my body — even with this girl having the highest viral load ever …. ever seen ….

Glucose Blood Test and HIV

I was doing a glucose blood test and after I finished with the procedure I went to take out the little needle that was in the pen device and I accidentally stuck myself I did not bleed and I was wear gloves. I am unaware of this person has HIV or anything else blood related that is transmittable. Am I at risk? Should I go and get tested?

Used Band-aid

i was in class when i noticed a bloody band-aid on the desk next to me. The blood seemed dried. Someone must have gotten ride of it because a guy sat down at that same desk, where the bloody band-aid used to be, and didn't seem bothered. My question is, since the band-aid was bloody and assuming it was HIV+, could the blood on it make it so that it would be unsafe to sit in that seat and use that table? Could the dry blood on the band-aid transfer HIV to the guys clothes? If he touched the dry blood and then went to the bathroom, could he get HIV? Or if i touched where the band-aid used to be, me being a woman, and then went to the bathroom or something could i get HIV? What if i get a cut after or before having touched it? Also, i want to know if it is possible to get HIV from blood if you touch it indirectly, as in touching a clothing that touched dry blood and then going to the bathroom? Is HIV transferable from object to object?

Elisa on the 84th day? Is it conclusive?

Hi!

On 10-11 September night (2016) I kissed and give a guy a handjob! He did not ejaculate, but there was a lot of precum. I do not remember if I had any cuts/abrasions on my hand. Also, he touched my panties where the vagina was with his finger and I do not remember If he had touched his penis before.

On December 2, 2016 - he TOLD me he took a combo CMIA Hiv test that was negative.
On December 3, 2016 - I took an ELISA - I think it was 3rd generation, but I am not sure. Might have been 4th.

So, I took my test exactly on the 84 day (arter 83.5 days to be exact) and it was negative.

IT IS CONCLUSIVE ? Or should I retest? Thank you!

Cut by braces receiving blow job. What are my risks?

Hi i received a blow job from a tranny with braces. I do not know if she had bleeding gums or open sores. It was dark so i did not notice any blood right after the blow job. But when I got home I noticed minor cuts on the glande and there was a bit of my blood. I am at risk? as far as a understand is her saliva -may be with an open cut in her mouth because of her braces- vs my penis getting cut.

Blood on Door

Hello. I was a helping an elderly relative of unknown status put up his storm doors. He has neuropathy in his hands, so he can't always feel it when he cuts his hands. Anyway, he cut his hand sometime during the installation...we found a few drops of blood on the door handle. I had work gloves on most of the time, but did take them off to move something at one point. I went to the bathroom to wash my hands...I did NOT see any signs of blood on my hands and I did NOT have any cuts...not even any cuticle peels (thank god!). But given worst case scenarios...that he was infected and blood did get on my hands but I just couldn't see it or it smeared in, would this still be considered a NO RISK? I hope so...about a year ago, a pipe from a dental office dripped on my head...I had HIV and hepatitis tests done at 1, 3, and 6 months and hope to never have to go through that stress again! Thanks.

Condom broke during anal, put on PEP, ARS symptoms?

Dear AIDS Vancouver,

Thank you very much for all your help and for replying to all the questions.

I am a 29 year old gay male, and I had sex on the 26th of October, where I was the insertive partner. However, the condom broke just at the beginning, and I have noticed it only 30 seconds after it broke, after which I have pulled out (I am also circumcised). The next day (29hrs later) I went to the hospital and got PEP. Immediately after starting taking PEP, I got a red sun-burn-like rash under my armpit and belly and legs, and I went back to the hospital and they replaced the regimen Ive got with Descovy and Rezolsta that I am using now. I know it couldnt have been ARS as it was a day after exposure.

Later on around the 6th day I got a slight cold and fever, which disappeared quickly.

On the 10/11th day I developed a maculopapular rash all over my shuoulders, neck, a bit on my back and chest, it was horrible, amd a fever. I went back to the hospital on the 11th day and they did an RNA test which came back negative.As soon as I got the results my rash and my fever disappeared.

On the 15th day I started getting chills and a fever all of a sudden in the evening (38,8), which subsided the next morning, but I started sweating all the time, especially in the evenings, I am having nightsweats for 2 days now.

I am on the 17th day now post exposure and PEP, and I am terrified.

Can you please tell me how big was my risk to start with, if the guy was positive? Could all of these be ARS? And could the RNA test taken 11 days post exposure be a false negative due to the PEP medication I was taking (because I have read somewhere online from some doctors who have been replying to others, that PEP can cause a false negative RNA?). But then again, can one have ARS symptoms if the viral load is undetectable?

Many many thanks!

Cut from a Dental Bur

Hi!
I am a dental student. I was treating a patient and cut myself on the bur I had been using to drill my patient's teeth. The bur may have also hit the patient's gingiva, although I genuinely do not recall weather any blood was drawn or not. (Dental burs look a bit like tiny drill bits). The bur attaches to our drill and sits upright in a holder while we are not using it. The bur was sitting in open air and I scraped the side of my finger on it as I was reaching for a different instrument. I did not notice the scrape until I got home later and was washing dishes and felt a sting. I didn't worry about it because the bur had been exposed to air, so I figured this made the virus non-transmittable, but my friends have been telling me otherwise and now I am worried. Even if there was blood on the bur, is there any risk of HIV transmission?

Much thanks
