HIV Transmission

Scared to death about glans playing and jerk with saliva

Hi, sorry for my bad English but I needed to solve a question about HIV. Last Sunday (two days ago) I had sex with another guy. We are both LGBT. There was no penetration at all. I gave him oral sex with a condom. However, I worry that on Monday I woke up with a terrible infection in the urinary tract and today Tuesday at dawn (South America time) I feel a lot of discomfort like decay or something like that, even a little sore throat. The activity in particular is the following: he and I rubbbed a couple of times the penises. Specifically in glans I had lot of precum. He had very little of his, according to this, could I be at risk of HIV, I mean by the rubbing of glans. Ive found different points of view in internet I would like that you as experts could anwer me. I almost foget it. In some moment he masturbate me using a bit of his saliva.
Thanks for reading me and excuse me english is my second language

Very worried

Dear Team

Hello. I am a man aged 27. I had a french kissing incident with a certain lady whom I did not know very well in November last year. I did not taste any blood at all. I later learnt that she was hospitalized for some ailment. Immediately I began to fear for HIV. Suppose she is HIV+ (I dont know if she is) and she has gingivitis or ulcers in the mouth..could HIV have been spread to me during the kissing? Would a microscopic amount of blood in her saliva be a high risk for me?

Thank you for your advise.

New relationship with woman that has HIV (undetectable)

Hello,

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),
open-mouth kissing
Contact between broken skin (wounds)
Oral sex
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?

Thanks You

Does brief dipping warrant PEP ?

Hello,

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.

A worried physically disabled guy

Hello,

The main reason I ask this question is that I am with physical disabilty and in the country I reside there is no PEP or PrEP, and also to go for a HIV test I have to travel 200 km ,which is not possible for me. Also in Europe the treatment policy is to wait the virs to progress and then go on therapy it is not like North America

The situation is - I had a guest a month ago and she had reddish chapped lips and some sort of redish gims at the same time I had a small cut ON my lip. I have not seen her for a long time and I am not sure of her health status . We did not do anything just talked very close to one another.

Is it possible for blood of her lips and gums while talking to get into my cut. Is there any danged for me to contract something . I know saliva is HIV supressor but in what degree.

So my question is....do you advise me to start organising my jorney for hiv testing or the risk is rather low and it is not needed

Thanks in advance for the answer

Regards

Protected Sex

Hello,
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

Dirty bathroom water / bandage exposure

Hi AIDS Vancouver,

I have a question about a couple of potential exposures that I had recently that I was wondering whether or not I should be concerned about.

The first exposure involves dirty bathroom water - If dirty water from a bathroom floor (generic brown dirty) splashes onto my genital area, is there risk of transmission of HIV? There would have only been a few drop's worth that splashed onto the naked genital area, but it's worth noting that I had both irritation and acne around my anus and penis. What's the degree of risk associated with this kind of exposure?

The second exposure involves a person with a fairly fresh bandage on their finger hugging / patting me while I'm holding a shirt I was about to put on. If this individual's bandage came into contact with the inside of my shirt, which I then put on almost immediately afterwards, is there any risk of transmission? I don't recall seeing visible blood, but if the part of my shirt that he touched rubbed across my face, is there risk of transmission?

Thank you for any help and information you can provide.
