Accuracy of Point of Care HIV Test

Hey guys,

I would like to start with the thing that I am on PreP and taking it every day. 3 weeks ago or maybe a bit less I had unprotected sex and starting from Saturday (4th day today) I've been having a severe headache that never had before and some fever not higher though than 37.8C.
I am on painkillers right now and I would say it works quite alright. I tested my blood for HIV by HIV DUO Quick HIV1/HIV2 BIOMERIEUX yesterday and got results to be negative today. I asked the consultant about my situation taking into consideration the fever and severe headache whether it's confirmed that these symptoms were not caused by the conversion just by smth else since I believe that if someone has a conversion going on in their bodies with above-mentioned symptoms it means that a viral load is high and it would be easily detected by the machine. The consultant asked me to contact my doctor since he was not sure about that. I am out of the country now and I've got no possibility to do so. Could you please help me with that?
P.S. I stopped taking PreP on Saturday, the day I felt bad.

Can you get infected with HIV through dental equipment?

Dear all,

I went to the dentist a little over 2 weeks ago, and I was terrified of it. I went there and the dental assistant told me that the tools are obtained from an autoclave bag. He told me that there was supposed to be some blue indicator, but later when I saw the bag, I did not see the indicator and it was not blue.
I have been suffering for more than 2 weeks because I am afraid of being infected with HIV. The day I went to the dentist, I actually ended up going to the ER twice because I was so anxious and scared and I started to panic.
I did not have any procedure done on an actual day, the dentist just checked for cavities (up to that point I was fine). However, then she used a dental probe (a long metal tool with a hook) to check my gums, and see if they needed cleaning. My gums ended up bleeding, and that's when I panicked. Especially since I had seemed the mirror she was using (the little dental mirror) had a reddish tint, and the dentist cleaned it. I thought maybe it was just fog, but now that I think about it, I think maybe it could have been blood.
I also got an HIV test on the same day, and of course, it was negative, which I knew it would be. I know any infection would show 3-4 weeks later, so I am scared again because today and yesterday I woke up with an itchy throat and itchy nose like allergies.
I have been obsessively checking my lymph nodes and fever, and I am just scared. How likely is for someone to be infected with HIV at the dentist, and when it was just a checkup and not an invasive procedure.
The only thing that caused bleeding was the dental probe tool the dentist used to check my gums and see if I needed a cleaning.

P.S. The doctors at the ER told me that I did not need PEP because I did not have an exposure and that it was highly unlikely for someone to be infected at the dentist, but that's what bothers me, they told me it is highly unlikely. It should be not likely at all. They told me I have anxiety issues, which is true, is not the first time I have been scared. I had a tonsillectomy last year and I was also scared to death. I was not able to relax until I had a test.

HIV Transmission From a Nail File

Hello there.
I have recently went to a nail salon to had my nails done. During one of the procedures, I have noticed that the lady who was doing my nails, had scratched some of my fingers with the nails file and there have been couple of little cuts, with a bit of a blood. She put some disinfectant over them, however I am scared as I do not now if she has cleaned her equipment before she started doing my nails and I have read an article about this Brazilian woman, who got infected through a manicure tool. Am I at a risk of HIV infection?

HIV transmission from bodily fluids passing through clothing

Hello,

I am 35 male, i am non-American, incase of mistake in communication apologies.

I am having a hpv genital ward on shaft portion. I recently went to strip club and took a vip. I was wearing only a cotton workout dress, no underwear. The lady was naked and rubbing butt and front of her continues 15 min. I had pre cum, not sure if she passed fluid on me.

My doubts are, if she have hiv or any other std, can it pass through my pants to wart and virus infect me? It was paining when she rubbed as she was very much close to my parts.Not only wart am i at a risk of getting virus infected like this?

Exposure to air

What is the actual facts on HIV exposure to air. It seems to vary on this and many other sites, does it actually stop the ability for it to be passed or not ???
