FEAR OF HIV INFECTION AFTER EXPOSURE

Hi, Thank you for this plateform. I had sex with a lady i met on a trip however without a condom. The next day i realized i have been stupid. same week after the exposure i experienced about 2 weeks dryness in my mouth and loss of energy with headaches. six weeks down the line i experienced rashes which are smallish and looks like pimples on my face and chest and arms. I am in the seventh week (50 days) and still having the rash on my face, neck and chest (scattered).

I tested on the sixth week (rapid test) and it was negative. What is the chance of positive HIV on the 12th week? are my symptoms an indication of HIV infection?

Please assist.

I am 34 male from India. I had a protected sex with sex(ORAL AND VAGINAL with condom) worker in equidor south America on 8th july 2016. After that on same day put my finger in her vagina for 30 minutes.and accedntly I touched my finger to my tip of my penis.I am having small burning pain on my penis till now.
I cane to india on 15th july 2016. One of my friend hospitalised on 27th july 2016 and he needs blood urgently.As that blood group not available and no blood banks available in our town.So I donated my blood to him and saved .The following tests carried out on that day
1)Blood group and rh typing
2)haemoglobin
3)HIV 1 and 2(TRIDOT)
4)anti HCV
5)V D R L
6)CROSS MATCHING
All above tests found normal.
On 20th day after exposure , the above tests carried out .So please tell me is there any chance of HIV infection for me and my friend later.Because i am worried for my friend. Nothing should happen to my friend who received my blood.
Doctors told me that because of me he saved as his platlets count came down to 3000.

Hiv symptoms and how long do the intial symptom last.

Open cut and sweat

Hello,
I would highly appreciate your help on the matter that bothers me.

I cut my finger with cooking foil two days ago. The cut started to heal but it is still a little bit reddish on the inside with no bleeding. Today i went to the gym and there was a guy who was using the running machine before me. I didn't put any band-aid on today and touched the equipment after him.

How concerned should I be about what happened today? Thank you in advance.

Lancet

Can a used lancet from a diabetic transmit HIV to me? I was working at a restaurant, and a costumer came in that was diabetic. He took out his diabetic kit to test his blood sugar. He used his lancet to prick himself and then took his insulin. He then preceded to wrap his trash in a napkin and asked me to toss it for him. I reached for it and prick myself on his lancet and blood came out. I asked if he has anything and he said no that he was healthy other than being diabetic. But still I am worried if he was telling me the truth or not. Could he have transmitted HIV to me through a lancet. I research that a lancet isn't a needle that is hollow but a solid pin. Please help me I am unease right now in my mind.

Negative rapid antibodies test and negative PCR, Should I be relieved ?

Dears,
I felt the symptoms of HIV after having a 'protected' sex with a sex worker
My main noticeable symptom was a white tongue with red dots on it

I was really anxious and frightened, so I went to STD clinic

I had a rapid antibodies test (got the results after 20 minutes) and the result was negative
This test was 17 days after exposure, and the doctor told me that I got Chlamydia and told me to take azithromycin as one dose

I did so but the symptoms didn't go away as I still felt a muscle pain and flu-like symptoms except for fever

So I decided to take a PCR test at the 24 days mark after the exposure
and today the test result came as negative (cp/ml <50)

So my question, Should be relieved ?
I slept with my wife also (please don't judge me) and I'm really scared that I infected her

Are these tests reliable or not ?

Thanks a lot.

Kissing and masturbatiion risks

Hi,

I have two 'risk' scenarios I'm concerned about.

The first is from mutual masturbation. A guy wanked me and I'm not sure if he had precum on his hands from his own penis when he touched me. He rubbed the head of my penis with his fingers, including the tip (urethra). What is my risk from this?

The second is with a guy I know who has had bareback anal sex (insertive) and has never tested for any STI's. He tried to kiss me last week and slipped his tongue in my mouth twice. I had a very sore ulcer on the roof of my mouth. Just under two weeks later and I have had severe headaches, body aches, particularly my neck and shoulders, but going down to my arms and also in my wrist and hands. I don't feel any lymph nodes swollen but the pain moves from area to area and I've also had bad nausea, too. Is this ARS? I've not had any fever or rash.

many thanks!

Losing my mind thinking i got Herpes & HIV!

Hello,
I am male, 25 years old, foolishly had unprotected sex with a sex worker 6 weeks back. She probably was 28-35 years old. The whole sexual encounter lasted around 40 mins and it was mostly kissing and oral (fellitio) but for around 25-30 seconds I inserted my penis in her vagina. The moment I realized it, I took it out. Later, I ejaculated in her mouth.

21st day after the encounter - I had a small cut in my tongue out of nowhere and it was healed within the day
On the 22nd-28th day - red bumps with white center pop-ed up in several places of my body (none were in the genital or oral area though) but, except one, those too went away within the day. The exceptional one pop-ed up near my right ear and took around 3-4 days to heal, it was slightly bigger than the others and left its mark there after it was healed. None of these were painful or caused itchy or burning sensation before appearing.
On 37th day, I had horrible toothache in the back of my mouth by my wisdom teeth (which are still in my mouth) and stayed around 2 days
Today (42nd day after possible exposure) I spotted two white spots on the gum of my front teeth (not itchy or painful), which might or might not have been there before (I am a chain smoker).

On my 30th day, I consulted with a doctor, he examined and suggested me to run some tests (CBC, HBSAg, AntiHCV, HSV-1/2 IgG and HSV1) and prescribed some medicine. All my test came negative except HSV-1/2 IgG test. The result of IgM test came back negative but the result of HSV-1/2 IgG (not specific) was 17.40. My doctor said I had it for quite some time, probably since my childhood, and if I never experienced any outbreaks ever then there is a possibility that I would never experience any for the rest of my life.

Would be really grateful if you please could answer my questions:
1. Can those be the symptoms of any of the Herpes from the recent exposure?
2. Though my doctor said the result of my IgM test is negative, 0.68 gm/l (reference range 0.4-2.4 gm/l) but can anyone tell me is it really negative or in un-determine stage? or is it possible that I get Herpes from my recent incident?
4. Should I get re-tested for Herpes again at the 60th day (2 month after the sexual encounter) or is the result I got from my last test conclusive?
5. I read from other posts here that the risk of HIV is negligible through oral sex but just to be assure is it possible for me to get HIV in my case (given I probably have weak gum or the issue of that wisdom teeth)?

Thank you for taking the time to read it. I would be grateful to you if you suggest me some advice and clear up my confusion by answering my question. Pardon me for my terrible English and unorganized presentation. Thank you.
