I had low risk exposure to possible HIV transmission - oral sex cunnilingus (I was the performer). I tested 3 times at 4 weeks, 12 weeks and 48 weeks periods. Test results were negative. But currently I started loosing weight. Year after possible exposure. Do I need farther re-testing?. Can I trust clinic tests? If I was positive would I started loosing weight at one year period (Do not have any other symptoms)?
Thanks in advance
Unprotected oral for 5 seconds without ejaculation - November 2015.
April 2014 - massage with HE.
Masseuse was Oriental in a dark flat. She wiped her hands due to fluid - worried it was her blood.
Got home showered and had spots of blood on towel which settled after 10 dabs.
Unsure if blood from burst blood blister on scrotum or crack in groin crease.
Worried about blood to blood contact and HIV infection.
4 weeks later admitted to hospital with fever and pneumonia (No rash or lymphadenopathy) - worried about ARS.
Worried about HIV.
Hello, I was walking past a homeless man today that I have seen once before and he spoke to me. As I walked past and said hello we went for a slight handshake but I don't recall feeling anything more than his fingers. As I saw his palm it looked as though he had a long cut across his palm that didn't appear to be dripping so I assume it was a scab. As I said before I do not recall touching that much of his hand but unsure. As I walked past, my fingers that made contact with his hand felt slightly wet, I was unsure if this was due to me worrying over nothing but with close inspection to my fingers there was no smell or colour so I doubt it was blood or semen if any liquid at all. I have a habit of scratching the sides of my nails and I have got parts of skin pulled off, almost like it's cracked although there is no blood that spills from them (not sure if this is considered an open cut)..
This homeless man doesn't seem completely mentally stable, I am unsure if this is due to alcohol or drugs although both are common in my area. I'm worried that I might have caught HIV through the brief encounter with this man. Any explanation of the risks would be great, maybe I'm being stupid but would rather be told that by somebody else.
I'm a bit obsessive compulsive about this, but I was using a semi-public restroom at my office and dropped something in the toilet. Without thinking, I reached it to retrieve it, washed my hands well, and then noticed two small cuts on the same hand I reached into the toilet bowl with. They weren't actively bleeding but had been bleeding the day before, and I completely forgot about them. Washed my hands again and sanitized them, but I can't get this out of my head. Any risk of HIV transmission?
hi, my gf and i got tested for chlamydia and other stds, and we came out positive for chlamydia, and negative for every other std (HIV, herpes, etc).
We got treated for chlamydia and couple days later we boh came back negative for chlamydia. couple days later, she gave me a hand job that led to me getting a scab on my shaft. the next day we had unprotected sex and noticed the scab fell off and very minor cut where the scab used to be. we had unprotected sex about 4 times when my scab fell off and noticed that she was on her period for the last sexual encounter (blood while having sex on my penis from her period). We always wash up after having sex.
MY question is, is it possible to get some type of STD or HIV due to the fact i had a small cut on my penis while she was on her period while we had sex? we both tested negative for all std's including HIV, herpes, syphillis etc. We tested positive for chlamydia, but got treated and then we had sex when tests came back negative. What is my risk for HIV? or any other STD?
I am a 16 year old female and 8 weeks ago I has unprotected sex with a male of the same age as a drunken mistake. We had sex twice in one night, the first time we used a condom and the second time we didn't.
For the past 3 days I have suffered from a very mild fever which included;
mild headache, slight muscle pains, pain in the back of eyes when I move them and night sweats. I also had dierrea for the first day and now the fever is almost gone I have noticed my eyes are very very slightly starting to yellow. I hardly ever get fevers so I got worried and searched the symptoms on the internet to see acute HIV cause fever like symptoms which really got me worried. I don't think I have the HIV rash as my rash doesn't look like that because it is on my right chest/shoulder and they are little red spots with some that have puss in them (they do not itch) also the rash flared up while I was abroad in Spain for 2 weeks, a week ago. I got bitten by Mosquitos but I don't think that has anything to do with the fever.
I know I need to get checked out and I will do very soon but just wanted to see what you have to say. Also how long does it take to get infected by HIV after unprotected sex and how long does it usually take acute HIV symptoms to show up after unprotected sex?

I live in Bangladesh. I test my HIV after 5 month, and 6 month of expose. ELISA and rapid strip test method(3rd generation test). I have no any other symptom. But I am felling mental anxiety. Am I free from HIV?
First of all, thank you in advance. I'm a 21 year old gay man.
The thing is, I had my first sexual encounter a while ago. It consisted of unprotected oral sex (I was on the receiving end) a few times about a month ago, all encounters with the same person. During those times I also received a rimjob (also unprotected) and mutual masturbation that involved contact between my penis and the other guy's, there was a lot of contact with pre-cum, none of us got to ejaculate during the act, I know mutual masturbation isn't considered a risky activity but... I wonder, is there any risk of HIV (or any other STI) from the contact of body fluids such as pre-cum or semen with the opening of the urethra??
I'm mostly worried about the HIV risk of these activities. I've read that they are low risk activities, however, should I consider being tested for HIV? Or am I just overreacting?
Please help me.
I have visited thailand recently where i had only protected vaginal sex with a CSW. I have had a few drinks but i remember the condom did not break.And at the base of my penis there was red skin happens to me where new skin grown and the time the base of the penis was pink. The condom did not cover the base at the end soo i am really worried i took an hiv elisa test where it was negetive at 25 days. i am going though extreme anxiety since the sex worker was in her 50's and i heard they usually have sex with out condom soo her chances are high. what are my chances of getting hiv.
I had anal sex in a threesome. Two guys were having sex, one came, so the other came to me and had sex with me (me as a bottom) with the same condom he used with the other guy (like three minutes after). What are the risks of contracting HIV from this situation?
