HIV Transmission

risk of transmission?

hi
I just got tested for HIV in a HIV specific lab. now im worry if there is a risk of transmission since only HIV+ people get tested there. should I start PEP?
she used new syringe and latex cloves, but she touched and tied the armband (while latex was worn) before wiping my skin with a piece of cotton and alcohol (possibly)
thank you

Do I need a further Test?

I had a encounter of mutual masturbation, where I fingered the lady and then masturbated self with Vaginal Fluid on my fingers and that fluid may have came in contact with my Penis.

I had SERUM HIV(I & II)AG/AB( Combo) Test with Method : Chemiluminescent Immunoassay on day 15th and Day 29th and both the results are as under:

15th Day: 0.24 S/Co : Non Reactive
29th Day: 0.11 S/Co : Non Reactive

1. Can I Conclude that I am not infected on the basis of the Test results?
2. Is the above mentioned test 4th generation?
3. If I need to take the same test for a conclusive result, when should I take it again?

Thanks in advance for your knowledge sharing and support.

Blood in my fried chicken. Help me please

Please help me with my concerns.

Im so stress because yesterday me and my wife bought a fried chicken, when we are already eating the chicken i notice some small blood in my chicken (neck part). I remember about deseases or viruses that human can get in bloods, like HIV. Im scared if i can get HIV from the blood of a chicken. What if the chicken is infected with hiv i know this sounds "funny" because i have some cuts in my lips due to cold weather. But as i remember when we buy the friend chicken it is deep fried in the pan, i saw it.. So please heres my questions.

My questions our:
*can chicken transmit hiv? Or be a carrier?
*do hiv survive in cooking like deep frie food?
*why does chicken can or cannot be infected by hiv? Is there any study about why chicken cannot carry this virus? Even if someone
intentionaly inject hiv blood in chicken?
*do i need test?

Note: sorry for my poor english, i hope you understand my situation. Thank you so much. I hope you can help my with my questions.

Hiv CMIA test negative 29 days after PEP completion

Hi,

I had sex with someone on Dec 20 and the condom broke in between. I only realized after finishing. I started PEP in less than 48 hours and took it for 30 days. I tested at 42 days after exposure (11 days after PEP completion) the test was negative. The test I used was HIV CMIA (p24 and Antibody). I took another test (HIV CMIA serum) at 60 days after exposure (29 days after PEP completion) which was also negative

My question is this:

1. Are these test results encouraging?
2. I am planning to take another test at 42 days after PEP completion (74 days after exposure). Have you ever seen post pep test at 28 days turn positive in the future?

I have read on the Internet that HIV 4th gen test are conclusive at 6 weeks by expert. So if my test at 74 days (10 weeks and 4 days after exposure or 42 days after PEP completion) is negative. Can I consider this conclusive?

herpes in contact with blood

hello. I was eating restaurant food, and in the middle of my food I saw something blood-like on the chopped cheese on my plate. I could whip it with napkin from the cheese and it was all red. I am quite afraid the guy who chopped it could cut himself while chopping and it just fell in my food. I have herpes on my lips at the moment and it is not healed and it is on the part which just comes to contact with food all the time and I cant avoid it. the cheese was on the top and so the blood was not cooked / heated, I ate the food five minutes from the time when I picked it up from the waitress. I dont know if it is considered on air, if is was also mixed inside the sauce, and I ate some pieces before I realized it might be blood on it. Am I at risk? Would hiv die in this situation prior to the time I ate it? Thanks a lot for your help!!

Is it posible for a fish to be infected by the hiv virus? Or be a carrier?

Good day.. Something is giving me anxiety.. Sorry for my poor english, but i hope you can help me.. I have a few questions about my case involving hiv.

Last week me and my family had a vacation in (coron palawan here in philippines) we stayed at the floating houses near the sea shore where there are many tourist also renting for a trancient rooms or renting for a small houses like ours. Eventualy those houses dont have a septic tanks. 1 morning me and my cousins decided to catch fish using fish hooks, we catch 12 fish with the fish hooks and we put it in the small container, i decided to put some natural water in the container from a fauset. After 30 mins my cousin accidentaly pour the water in the fish container in my foot where i have a open cut wound. After that i remember the water from the fish container has a blood of fish we caught on the sea side, what if the fish we caught is infected with hiv, or carries virus like hiv? Because i remember they live in the sea side where people wastes like poops, urine, vomits, spits (saliva) go. Im thinking that what if the fish eats some of the feces of people who is hiv positive or consume other human wastes containing hiv virus? Can a fish be infected of the virus? Can hiv virus survive in sea water? How well does hiv survive in salt water? Please understand my english.. Help me..

Frottage - Straight male

Dear Helpline,

thanks for your engagement and help, regarding insecure individuals in this regard - just like me. I slept with a Girl twice (protected), received oral (no visible blood), handjob (doubt there were vaginal fluids on her hands) and there was some unprotected contact between my penis and her vagina (no penetration, but rubbing of the top of my penis against her vagina). Do any of these actions require testing/pose a risk? Especially the latter?

I really appreciate your feedback. Thanks!
