HIV Transmission

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.

Is air conditioner's air able to kill Hiv just like outside air?

hi there, i have a question: when you say that Hiv dies instantly at the presence of ''fresh air'', i wanted to know: is the exsisting air in a room with an ''air conditioner on'' considerd ''fresh'' as well? or it should be necessarily air from outside??

Had unprotected sex with HIV positive prostitute 3 times

Hello there,

Thanks in advance for replying and helping,

I had 3 times unprotected sex with the same person who is HIV positive. First time was hardly 2 seconds, 2nd time was 30 seconds or so and 3rd time for 15 mins approx, all on different days. When I first met her she told me that she has lost lot of weight with natural medicines. After our last meet I was terrified and things started to pop up in my mind that loosing weight could be because of HIV and the way she has sex with me looks she is a sex addict and must be doing the same with everyone out there. So I then secretly consulted other girls around the same place, who than informed me that she is mad about sex and people have reported she even drinks sperm and offers free sex to people who comes for massage, also got to know that she was very obese initially and had lost weight tremendously.

After being terrified with these news I went back to her this time with a condom, and went as if a regular sex meet. Before starting I told her about my anxiety since past few weeks and my worries, but she clearly refused to be HIV positive and saw a complete new side of her by the way she then talked and reacted as if I asked her what she's got. After that I returned home and couldn't get sleep in the night thinking about my wife, and also couldn't make any physical relationship with her. On the 19th day of last exposure without condom, I went ahead and took an early test of PCR RNA and p24 antibidy, but the lab said it will take 4-5 days for the result. So I went to another lab and tested myself with ELISA which looked like a pregnancy tester strip and the lab put my blood on it and said it is negative. I am now sure that preexposure with her I was not infected. But right now, as there is 3-4 days more to go for the results of PCR RNA and p24 test I am dying with guilt and anxiety. I am restless, I need help to find how are my chances against the odds. And what else would cause here severe weightloss? If HIV, then what stage would it have been? I am dying with questions.

PS: a lesson learned that will never ever do it without a condom, never ever.

HIV transmission - fingering, possible exchange of body fluids

Hi there,

Recently I engaged in rimming and brief fingering from a man where I was on the receiving end. He did not know his status 100%, but otherwise I am aware that both of those activities are a negligible risk. However, I do know know that he was engaged in condom-less sexual activity with a man who is HIV undetectable within a few hours of me.

I am essentially concerned if he had not washed his hands after engaging in anal intercourse or being in contact with body fluids, how much of a risk I would be in? I will be getting a test within 11-12 weeks, but otherwise I find conflicting information on the internet in terms of how long HIV can survive outside the body. I understand viral loads can be in different levels, even when someone is undetectable.

Finally, I also engaged in protected sex (receiving) with another fellow. When he pulled out he, ejaculated on my buttock to my surprise, and some near/on the entrance to my anus. I wanted to also ask at what point do mucus membranes begin in the anus? I stood up quickly, but the combination of these two events has asking myself things I had not considered before! Thank you.

Protected oral sex worried about HIV

Hi,
I had protected oral sex from a CSW couple of weeks back. I wore condom throughout the act. She perform oral sex on me twice each time with different condom. Also, during the act I fingered her vagina but I didn't had any cuts or sores or any thing. I am worried about HIV and considering the nature of this whole incident do you think I need to get tested?
