HIV Transmission

Contamination from Knife cut to an Open Wound in Mouth

My friend cut himself with a knife we were using to cut a cheesecake. I used the knife immediately after to cut myself a piece, which I ate right away. I bite my lips and the inside of my mouth a lot. Assuming that I have an open wound in my mouth and assuming that he is HIV positive, what is my risk of infection?

I Pray We'll Be Ready

i fingered a girl and forgot i had a blister on my finger

Negative results from 4th generation DUO test after 6 weeks & 10 weeks & 2 days.

I am a male, had a protected the vaginal sex with CSW.
But the condom broke , we stopped as soon as we realized.
Not sure how long the exposure was.

This is my only exposure.

I was under tremendous stress & anxiety since then.

I had done the 4th generation DUO test at the lab (in the US at LabCorp) after 6 weeks.

I did another test at the lab (in the US at LabCorp) after 10 weeks & 3 days.

Both the test results came as NonReactive.

Are my results conclusive ?

Should I test again after 12 weeks?
What are the changes of the this result changing from NonReactive between 10th week & 12 week.

thank you.

Gonorrhea and Chlamydia from blowjob

I received blowjob from a CSW around a month ago. The blowjob act was unprotected. However, there was no cunnilingus or penetrative sex involved. I know that transmission of HIV in such a case is quite unlikely, however, I am concerned about other STIs, more specifically Gonorrhea and Chlamydia. What I know is that the symptoms for both of them usually appear approximately within 10 days of contracting the infection, for males. Since, it has been more than a month now and I have not experienced any symptoms, except for some rashes around the genital area, which I think is not a classical symptom of these STIs, I wanted to ask:

1. What are chances of contracting Gonorrhea/Chlamydia through unprotected blowjob, with no other type of sex involved?

2. Since these infections are usually treatable with antibiotics, I wanted to ask that what happens if these infections remain untreated for around 6 months or a year? Are these infections treatable a year after contracting them?

3. Considering that no other specific disease is present, can a CBC or urinalysis somehow indicate the presence of these infections?

TIA.

vagina fluids on condom

if someone gives blowjob and handjob with condom that have vagina fluids on and after remove the condom and give handjob and use spit as lube can u get hiv from that?

Probability of HIV infection of 20 second insertion of the penis in an anus

Five days ago I had sexual intercourse with a person who doesn't have any symptoms. I used condom during all the intercourse, but at a time I inserted the tip of my penis inside his anus for 10 to 20 seconds. We were both dry (no pre-cum on me and his anus was dry) so I am nervous if I could get infected. I don't have any symptoms or ever felt sick after it.

my ass has "wound", but then i got fingered at a wet spa.. it goes on?

Please do help me

today, i had an encounter at a wet spa, in the dry sauna. first, the guy masturbated my penis with some sort of lubricant, i asked what it was, he said conditioner. then, we didnt cum yet, we both left the sauna - took a shower - then went back again.

when we went back to the sauna, we continued again.. the guy had some sort of lubricant on his finger - then he fingered my ass. what if the lubricant/fluid on his hand was his sperm/pre-cum/blood, and not conditioner, and then he inserted it in my ass - will i get HIV/Aids?

It gets complicated because my butt has scratches that bleed when i wipe it with tissue after pooping. Meaning, after I poop, i wipe my ass too much to the point that it tends to bleed.
Then, usually when i see the blood, i stop after a few more wipes (bad habit).
So my butthole is "scarred" and has wound.

I am just afraid that my wounded butthole plus his finger with whatever fluid/precum/sperm/blood might have entered my system and then i've got AIDS/HIV..

For sure there was no penis-to-ass (anal penetration)..

Hope you can help me? Thank you so much

risk from blood on the surface

Hi, what a helpful group
I have some question in my mind. I have found that you said HIV does not survive long outside the human body and the wound is large enough for virus enter. But i am want to know that excactly how long the virus can live outside the body, Whether the virus dies immediately after leaving the body or it takes a few minutes and and the virus must directly access blood or broken cells.My country's instruction is that the virus can spread if blood gets into the scratch even if it is small so i am very anxious.
what happen if a people bleeding, he took my phone and got blood out there, then I took the phone immediately with a cut in my hand. this case can be transmisson virus ? do i nees take Pep ? i hope you reply soon.
Many thanks

Dentist : blood from another patient : risk ?

Good morning,
I had a bad experience yesterday. I went to the dentist and I noticed some blood on the plastic glass he uses to put the cottons, waste,... Actually This glass is always the one of the previous person. I didn't say anything at this moment but I haven't slept this night.

I'm afraid the assistant could have put her fingers on it and afterwards on the tools. I'm afraid the dentist could have touched the glass with the tools and after put the tools in my mouth. I'm really scared for being contaminated with HIV or another virus.
I was bleeding because of the dental procedure.

What do I have to do ? Help me please.
Sorry for my bad English.

Thanks by advance.
