HIV Transmission

Trashcan transmission

I attended an adult arcade that had trash cans inside. I reached down to move one and came in contact wit what I Assume was seamen. When in reaction I shook my hand I saw a small non bleeding paper cut. I am not sure if the fluid came in contact. I later learned clients at time ejaculated into the cans. What is my chance of getting HIV.

Confusion about post PEP testing


I had unprotected sex with a sex worker.after 4 days I was placed on 30 days PEP (Yes, I know it is late). I completed the 30 days and 4 weeks post PEP (8.5 weeks post exposure) I had 2 Rapid finger prick tests. Both came back Negative.

1. I was wondering if PEP has any chance at working after 3 days ?
2. What are the chances of it interfering with an antibody test at 8 weeks post exposure ?

Thanks for your time

HIV Risk face-vaginal contact

Hello, I apologize and will try to make the details as least graphic as possible.

Long story short, I received protected oral from a sex worker. But my concern is that at some point, she sort of sat on my face for a couple of seconds (nude). She then kept insisting I lick her vagina but I was too afraid of HIV, so I only kissed her inner thighs a couple of times, and then I kissed her a single time on the exterior part of her vaginal lips, most likely (I can't remember exactly) just very near her vagina, actually. With my lips tightly closed, and feeling no fluid touch my lips. I never once stuck out my tongue.

Still, I'm a bit afraid of having been exposed to HIV.
1. Would her sitting on my face and receiving a single, closed lip kiss on only the outside surface of the vagina (or possibly very near) count as cunnilingus? If so would it be a risk to test over and worry about?

2. I don't recall anything wrong with my mouth, other than slightly chapped lips. Would this be an adequate barrier? Sometimes when I brush too hard I bleed a little.

Thank you for your help!

in a taxi

hello. i am quite freaking out although my brain tells me, this might be ok. but i need some feedback from professionals (thank you very much in advance!). i took taxi with my 9yrs old son. him sitting in the back, me in the front, only when we started, i noticed some strange things. not very clean car, the driver was weird, looked like junkie, pale, skinny, laughing strangely, and then I noticed he was high! (then I asked him to stop). I thought such thing was not possible, but it looks like it is. his hands were full of some strange scabs, not healed completely, looking red and fresh, and now I am completely out of my mind. Please, in case, we touched the interior of the car, (especially my son fell on the bike and had some scratches, not healed yet and you know, some small wounds and scratches as every 9yrs old has), he also keeps picking his nose and biting his nails. When I am nervous I touch my eyes and nose and I have herpes in my nose at the time. In case we did touch some blood, which maybe was fresh, is there any risk please? he opened the door and we both touched the same doorknobs immediately, etc.. and in case there were some other bodily fluids old some time but not completely dry yet... (as you can see i am completely paranoid now) thank you very much. maybe this sounds unbelievable and awkward but it is true and I am really out of my mind for the second day,... (maybe i am so stressed because this situation seems so... unreal.

HIV from self-exposure


Something strange happened to me. This may sound a little strange question but I wanted to ask. I'm HIV negative, I had tested two months ago. Today, I was masturbating and accidently my own sperm came into inside my eyes and ears. Can I somehow get HIV from my sperm if it directly contacts my eye, mouth or ears?

Thank you.

Semen/Cum Exposed to Air

I just want to confirm that semen/pre cum exposed to air does not pose a risk for transmission. I recently had protected sex with a guy …twice. I am concerned about the risk of precum and semen from his hands touching the condom while putting it on for the second go around.
Sorry if my questions sound absurd. I have extreme anxiety.
