i was using a public CR and when it was my turn the toilet seat was kinda dirty and had a little gooey substance. i wiped it off with wet tissue ( didnt press the tissue to o hard on the seat) and used the toilet. after using the cr, i went out and forgot to disinfect my other hand which made contact with the tissue and accidentally made contact with my hands to my mouth after say 20 mins and panicked when i realized i had a little wound near my lip and just made contact with it. do you think this is alarming? thanks i didnt really directly touched the substance though just the tissue.
Question about exposure risk. I sat down in a subway seat which had a questionable fluid on it. This fluid soaked the back of my sweater and part of my pants. It appears to have been part of a spill on the subway, likely beer since it was very sticky on the floor. When I smelled it, it smelled somewhat like old stale beer (had a sour smell to it), and did not have the frank smell that urine has. However, in the scenario that it was urine instead, what is my exposure risk from having a large amount of urine soak through my clothes and contact my skin with a few areas of unbroken skin (i.e. some cuts on my back)?
I am nervous because I had oral sex with a man who was undetected for 30 years but he did not tell me until after it happened. He performed it on my penis and I only did it oral to his anus. We had a heavy make out session and he came on his body, but some of it got on me and I wiped it off with a towel. A week later I have some chest pain and my tongue is white with some bumps on the back of the tongue. Is it too late for prep?! What can I do?
In Semptember i was tested for hiv, they did a rapid test from the finger. I went out from the centre and a while later i threw away the gauze which protected the wound although i didn't check if the would was already dry. Later i touched a few things and when i came back for the results i touched the handle. What is the risk of the transmission if the point was still bleeding and on the handle was hiv? A few weeks after that i felt very bad and now i have sore throat, a strange,red rash on the thighs and back, a white layer in the throat. I had also swollen lymph nodes in the throat and pain on the surface of abdomen. I was tested 27 days after that again, 4 generation test combo and it was negative. Should i repeat after 12 weeks? Thanks for your time and answer.
Should I consider test if I were mugged by few guys and I get injury? My hand was covered with blood, I didn't see any blood from attacker, but due to fact that my hand was bleeding, I did not recognise if whole this blood was mine or could be mixed with someone else blood.
Should I be tested if I did not saw any large amount of others blood?
I went to get an abdominal ultrasound (not vaginal) this past Monday, just the regular one that they do with the probe on top of your belly. I am concerned because I think the probe was not cleaned, and I am afraid the patient that was seen before I was seen could have had HIV and lacerations or skin sores and the probe could have been contaminated.
I normally would not worried, since I know intact skin cannot allow the virus in. However, I had an irritated pimple and it had some inflammation around it. So I was afraid that if the probe was contaminated with some blood, then I could have been exposed to HIV through my irritated pimple. Is this possible?
P.S. I am not sexually active, and I don't use any needles of any kind, so the possibly contaminated ultrasound machine probe on my belly on top of irritated people is my only concerned.
Good day dears,
First of all, let me say that I'm slowly dying since I gave oral sex to another gay guy 3 months ago.
In the meantime, I've been constantly reading and exploring about my possible HIV exposure.
At the moment of the exposure, no blood noticed in my mouth, only odor coming from my wisdom crowns. I have crowns all aroung the mouth, excluding the front teeth (up and down).
I may have gingivitis, which isn't something blood-related, only one spot of gingiva looks reddish.
Okay, I don't know what to say, since I'm so anxious I can't breath. I want to go get tested but I'm so scared, since I experienced sore throat with no fever (maybe 37.2 Celsius one day) but I was constantly feeling hot, thinking this is ARS related. I was so scared, searching for symptoms and maybe anxiety made them show up.
There was not ejaculation in my mouth, but there must have been pre-ejaculation...
I'm constantly reading your forum and I must say that you all are giving a lot of good informations, this is a perfect place to ask! Thank YOU all !
So... Is gingivitis considered an open wound? Gingiva bleeding but not too much? Or what are you talking about is a big, open, gaping wound inside the mouth for a chance of transmition? I'm confused, scared to death. I can't sleep, eat, talk... My life became a big, deep, dark hole.
**** Last month I was on a flight and there was some broken glass on my meal tray. I didn't realize it at first, however somehow when the flight attendant was serving me some must have got into my food and I cut my tongue on a tiny piece.
Is it possible that I could have contracted HIV in this manner if the flight attendant had also cut himself on the glass while serving me and then I consumed the glass, cutting my tongue in the process?
I have had a rash on my chest for a week now and I've been worried sick that I may have contracted HIV in this manner. Please help me.
Okay diving into the main part i had a unprotected sex with a girl...20 days ago.later i got so worried about hiv so i asked her if she had a past she told she always had protected sex and she told she had sex with a guy 4 days ago prior to me. I was told hiv transmission would be high in acute stage of infection. So my question if she was lying about the protected sex thing. Would she still transmit the virus at higher rate (because it has been just 4 days she might have got the virus) and she was so kind that she got herself tested (cmia methord which dignoses both ag and ab) on 19th day after she had sex with the other guy and result was negative i have done my dna proviral after 14 days of exposure and the result came negative .
