HIV Transmission

Sexual Activity with Tran Woman and Fear of HIV

Hello,

I have done sexual activity with trans woman sex worker for the first time, Both used condom, I received anal from the trans woman but after reading on internet i got anxiety that the condom was broken or had tears and that is just like condom was not used! The meeting was not too long, was like 1 hour.

I have done PCR RNA and Ab tests at day 8, with other testes like Hep B,C and Syphilis. Thankfully all were negative. After that i read in the Internet that PCR RNA test is not accurate and I read that there is 4th gen test Ab/Ag that can be done after 28 days.

I have done the DUO test at the start of day 28. The result was negative.

I still have anxiety and it is irritating my overall health.

I would appreciate your kind response. Should I stay worried?

Kind regards,

Visiting a Different Country, Increased HIV Risk?

What is the percentage of people from Canada who go to Africa (specifically Kenya) that come back to Canada infected with HIV?

Cuts at Nail Salon, HIV Transmission Risk?

Hello:
This past weekend I was getting a pedicure and the woman cut me. I did bleed. I didn't think much of it she had gloves on. She used a antiseptic to stop the bleeding but then she also used a brush that she later used to clean up the polish on my skin. She used it in the same polish remover container that she continues to use and then put the brush back on her cart. So I am now worried that she just reuses the equipment without sterilizing it.

Now I know it's a not likely but is there a chance to catch HIV this way? If she used the brush on someone else's blood and then applied that same brush to my cut? Or would HIV be present in polish remover since she is using the same brush you used to clean up my blood?

I am breastfeeding my 4 month old and I am terrified I may have been exposed so I have stopped breastfeeding her. I know it may sound a bit crazy but I am seriously worried that this can happen as I read a woman got infected using the same manicure equipment as a relative with HIV.

Genital Warts and Increased Transmission! Nothing on the web about this.

Hi,

I'm worried about a few sexual encounters I have had over the last year. I was tested for all STDs a year ago including HIV which came back negative. Since then I have seen some sex workers and have had the following performed. Made out with a stripper, oral sex received with condom on twice, 3 hand jobs without condom. Now the biggest worry I have and can't find answers for is that I have a couple gential warts from HPV, that I have had for a few years. These have been there before my HIV test a year ago. Reading online, I have heard its easier to get HIV when you have a penile wart. The only skin to skin contact was through hand jobs in which I noticed no active bleeding from me the receiver or the giver. Am I at risk? I'm re thinking these casual encounters, the worry is not worth the reward.

Thank you,

HIV transmission through clothing?

A prostitute sat on my back without dress, I was wearing full dress (T-shirt, vests and briefs and jeans pant), whether it would transmit aids due to her vaginal fluid in my dress?

Transmission from cellphone

Hello, I was in HIV clinic few weeks ago (probably little paranoid visit), and during the visit I have used my cellphone while waiting in waiting room (stupid decision). My hands were also wet because it was raining that day. After I finished my visit I washed my hands twice, but I forgot to sanitize my cell phone and continue to use it regularly. Am I at risk of contracting HIV because I bite my nails and went to pee one hour after? I have touched the doorknob and pen in clinic before using my phone.

Will I catch HIV if I foreplay with a women?

Hii there,

I went to an erotic massage parlour last week. I was doing foreplay with her. I was only kissing her neck though. But I found few blisters or acne on her. So, I'm afraid anything would happen.

My question is how will I know if I catch some STI's or STD's or HIV for that matter? It has been 5 days since I went there. Please help. Thank you.

Dried 3 day blood in condom

about a month ago from an online buying/selling application I bough some condoms and they arrived about 3 days later and on the same day I used one of the condoms and ejaculated in the condom. Even though the condoms looked sealed I am still scared that the person I bought it from might have done something to it. what if this person was HIV positive and he put some of his blood or semen into this condoms and packed it and sent it to me. I know this sounds crazy but I am super worried because few days ago I got this dry little rash thing on my penis shaft which looks a lot like eczema and less like a rash but I am still scared. can someone please tell me if its possible for me to get HIV in this scenario? can dried blood that gets in touch with penis urethra give me hiv?

Over-Concerned, Slightly Ignorant health care worker

Hello,
I am taking care of a HIV+ patient, whom now has developed AIDS. I was very careful with my encounter, I wore gloved and washed my hands with soap and water or with alcohol sanitizer. I just got a kitten and he scratched my fingers and hands and made little superficial cuts the day prior. I was in and out of this patients room but sometimes when I went to pick up his food tray I wouldn't glove up because I'd be in and out. He also has a incont. bowel episode that I had to clean but wore gloves. I know HIV is spread by blood encounters, and I saw no visible blood I am just paranoid because I have these superficial cuts and I am nervous somehow the virus got into it through out the day because I was picking up his food try and giving him water with no gloves on. Am I at risk if I do not recall any blood? Also, how long goes HIV live outside of the body.
