HIV transmission risk and question on handjob and nipple sucking

I read many threads and searched your database before I post this.

Some people said no risk and some said there is a possibility and my anxiety is building up so wanted to check again.

I went to a massage parlor 15 days ago and got a handjob, she pour some oil and gave a handjob and I sucked her nipples few time during that. Touched her vagina few times and put my finger inside.

What are my chances of getting HIV via handjob. If she has any cuts on her hand is there a possibility

I bit the inside of my lip that morning with my teeth while eating, what are my chances of HIV trasmission through that mouth sore since I sucked her nipples.

Any chance of getting it via fingering ( touched it from outside didn't put my finger inside her) her pussy.

Is there a possibility of exposure since I put my finger inside her pussy and then immediately touched my penis while she was giving me hand job.

Were there any exposures ever via hand job, blow job (I didn't get one) and sucking nipples

am posting the question 2nd time hoping that I will get an answer please. Thanks for the help I also donated yesterday for your efforts.

I took the HIV RNA early Detection test after 13 days(on the 14th day). am still waiting for the results. How accurate is the HIV RNA test after 13 days.

I still don´t get it: risk level

I have searched your database, however I still have doubts. I had vaginal intercourse and the condom broke, I felt it immediately and remove my penis. Am I in high risk of getting HIV?

Thank you very much for your answer, I am very anxious about this issue.

Contact with HIV+ Patient

Hi there,

I volunteer in an ER and I am concerned because I was not aware that a patient was HIV+ when I was helping them with their meal. I don't remember any substantial contact with the patient besides him touching my arm with his hand. Would there be risk of infection if he had blood on his hand and touched my skin if I had a small open cut? Or if where he touched me with the blood I then touched my eye or mouth? I don't remember seeing a large amount of blood but I was wondering if it takes an actively bleeding wound from the HIV+ person to enter the actively bleeding wound of an HIV- person/ large splash in mouth or eye. Please let me know your thoughts! Thank you so much

Nail Clipper Blood Incident


Very helpful helpline here. I had very stressing incident. I was with my private guitar tutor at a music academy. My nails were too long he said so he took me upstairs to the manager's office (not his) and opened his cabinet to get nail clippers that he uses for people who has long nails for guitar playing.

He said he needed to cut his nails too so he did it first. Then as I was cutting my nails, he was like "fuck I think I accidentally nick myself a bit" and started sucking on his finger. And I was like "oh" didn't think much of it. Then, when I got to my index finger I accidentally nicked the soft part under my nails I think it's called hyponychium.

I didn't notice substantial blood on me or the nail clippers. Just tiny blood nicks. I tend to cut my nails short as the hyponychium doesn't hurt for me :(

I am Korean and this was in Seoul, Korea. He said that he has a girlfriend but he does look very "loose" and maybe cheats on his gf idk.

Thank you

requesting for a reply from 3 days

Hi please give detailed reply

i don't care how many times i had to try, I always hope i can get the answer from you.

I went to get tested in a testing center in Myanmar ,an under-developing country if you may call, and my HIV test turned out negative (thanks god!). Soon after a fake happiness, I have become overwhelmed with the anxiety of getting infected from contaminated gloves!

One mistake the Lady who did the blood drawing made is by changing the gloves. I did not think it posed any risks at all until I thought it through. Just before I entered the room, she had performed her job to another person who had the same test like me too. Five minutes later, after consulting, she used exactly the same tray to keep alcohol patches in which she kept mine

Here are my assumptions:

She touched the previous person¡s small amount of blood (possibly while drawing the sample.) and the blood is infected the blood or virus was still on tray
The blood was wiped off or remained so little to notice, but there were some viruses left over on the gloves (No visible blood or fluid on the gloves, though i did not observe thoroughly)
Five minutes later, she picked a new piece of alcohol-soaked cotton with those contaminated gloves to wipe the blood-drawing area before drawing my blood and left it there when the blood was drawn (she used another alcohol swipe to wipe and afterwards to block the blood from flowing out after withdrawing the needles)

Here are my questions:

1.What is the likelihood of getting infected this way?

2. Can you say that the possibility is nil?

3.No test is needed?

4.Can viruses in dried and invisible form (I assume)pass on from the gloves onto the brand-new alcohol-soaked Strip and then to the outlet where my blood was drawn? ( It was at least 1 minutes interval before the cotton was touched)

5.Is 1 minute long enough for viruses to die, given invisible state with room temperature?

6.Can alcohol, I don¡t know what types, on the cotton immediately kill HIV virus upon contact? If not, how long?

6.If the viruses were alive, would it be sufficient in terms of quantity to infect me through the wound?
Again, I simply just didn¡t see any visible stain of blood or fluid on the gloves at all.
Does pressing and holding alcohol strip cotton that carrying some HIV viruse on the wound for 10 minutes kill the virus or allow viruses to get into my bloodstream? (The way most doctors here usually do after every blood drawing to block the flowing).
Sorry I¡m not familiar with medical terms, but I did try my best to describe the situation, hope it¡s understandable.

this small thing ruins my life already. I talked to people, but no one can give me precise answer. I am desperately in need of the answer.

please answer the questions in points as i asked


confused after test . Steel tray and alcohol patch


i went for a test , a blood test , She cleaned the place from where the blood was drawn with alcohol Patch twice, used new gloves , for blood drawing used butterfly blood drawing needle , but when she was removing the needle she used another alcohol patch to stop little blood that comes out when needle is removed , while removing so there was some blood coming out , and it touched alcohol patch and gloves , i am only worries as when she teared the cover of alcohol patch the patches she kept in the box where old patches were kept ( like its a steel tray , she threw the old patches and cotton from it used on previous patient , kept sealed patches in the same tray and then picked them up and used the patches on me )

can this cause HIV or ant STD

please reply

Sex Toys

Ok it is noted HIV does not survive long outside the body. It is also noted you can not transmit off of surfaces. Then why is the rule seem different for sex toys?

4th generation DUO test results conclusive ?


I had an exposure due to broken condom with a CSW about 4 months ago.
This is my only exposure.

After that I got tested few times with 4th generation DU test as below.

1. 6 Weeks after exposure - NonReactive.
2. 10.5 weeks after exposure - NonReactive
3. 13 Weeks after exposure - NonReactive.

in between , I used a dose of antibiotic for throat infection & also eye drops with steroids.

Would this affect the test results ?
Should I consider these results as conclusive or test after 6 months.
Please advice.

thanks for your help in advance.

Exposure risk


I recently had a blister pop on my hand (just from work i was doing on the weekend) and it has been healing for the last few days but is still red and healing. I recently shook hands with a women from a convent in Tanzania and without thinking i put out my right hand with the blister and it came into contact with her hand. I do not know for sure if she has AIDs but there is a much higher risk in that country so i wanted to check if i should be concerned or not.

Thank you.
