HIV Transmission

Protected Oral sex

I received protected oral sex using a condom from women i was not familar of her sexual background. is there a risk for me to develop HIV?

HIV Worry

My HIV PCR test showed a negative results but there are more and more red bumps apppearing on my hand,arm,neck and face. Can I know why red bumps keep on appearing whereas I only have Non-gonorrheal urethritis? On top of that, I just took the Hepatitis A and B vaccine.

Cold Sore

I am worried because I was having a meeting with a man with a very terrible, raw, big cold sore on his mouth.  He kept touching it and then touching the papers/pamphlets/cards/pens we were working wiht.  I was touching them seconds after and at the same time.  I had a cut on my finger from 1 hour before that was new but not bleeding. Can i get HIV from this?

2 questions

Hi I have 2 questions to ask if possible. Thanks for helping me out.1. I was in a hospital and they brought a patient into the elevator in a wheelchair. This person had an opening in their neck that they were breathing from (like when someone has surgery I think). I was standing quite close to this person and they were breathing in my direction (through this hole in their neck). Is it possible that they could be breathing out vapour containing blood (because of recent surgery in this area) that could have gone onto my arm/face/eyes. I did not feel anything but Im worried that hiv can be transmitted like this. Is it possible at all? Eventhough it was casual contact?2. I touched the hand of someone wearing cleaning gloves to clean a toilet. If the gloves had blood trace on them from toilet cleaning and emptying sanitary bins, and I touched their glove with cuts on my own hand, would hiv transmission occur?Thanks for the assistance.

Mutual masturbation vs HIV

I 've been to afrika a couple of times lately, the last time(one week ago) i got friendly with a local girl. We spent the night touching (no intercourse). However, she could have had some vaginal fluids on her hands when she was touching my penis. In the mean time my penis had gotten a bit wet as well. Do I need to get worried/tested?


Hi, recently I have been very anxious about HIV. Two and half years ago, I met with a sex worker. Throughout the sexual activity, I used a condom. No oral sex, no lip kissing, only intercourse and nipples kissing. I am so worried now that I might be HIV positive. I can't focus on my daily work due to the anxiety. Could someone tell me what the possibility is that I am HIV positive? Will kissing nipples transmit the HIV virus? It is necessary go for HIV testing? Besides that, I think I am depressed now due to my wife's pregnancy.

Are these tests conclusive?

I want to ask that if I had an anal sex with a unknown HIV + or - sex worker, and without a condom, and I have took the following tests
After 21 days after exposer =========> P24 combo ag/ab =========> Negative.
After 28 days after exposer =========> I take P24 combo ag/ab again, and HIV ANTIBODY by EFLA method,and the tests==>CHLAMYDIA PCR, UROGENITAL MYCOPLASMA, gonorrhoeae, by PCR method ==> Negative.
And at the same day (28 after exposer) I took in another lab the tests====> HBsAg, Anti-HBs, Anti-HCV, HIV by ECLIA method,====> Negative.====>VDRL-RPR =========> Negative.
After 37 days after exposer =========> HIV-1 RNA (PCR), HIV Duo Ultra =========> Negative.
Today is the day 44 after exposer, I have took the testsHIV Duo Ultra =========> Negative.HBsAg, Anti-HBs, Anti-HCV, HIV by ECLIA method,====> Negative.VDRL-RPR =========> Negative.

Are these results conclusive either foe AIDS or Heptits B&C?
I mean can I have unprotected sex with my wife, she has never exposed to any kind of HIV risk (I am accurate of her), and I do not wnat any posibility to hurt her , I have children and I want her for them!!.
If not, I will be very patient and I can wait untill the conclusive time, but please tell me an acurate information about the accurate time and accurate test for AIDS, and Heptites B&C tests.
Thanks in advanced.

hi docfive days ago i had a girl in my hotel room to do a massage body to body one, i was nked and she was in her underwar, during the session , we did not had any sexual relation of any kind(no oral, anal,vagina or kissing), she was only rubbing her body againest mine while she was wearing her under ware, and we didnot do any sexual activity of any kind, during the massage i felt some fluide slipping on my anus,and she also massaged my penis with no ejaculation,but after she left, when i was taking a shower , i saw some thing like a boil or carbuncles(the one with white tip) in the lower part of my abdomen also i have the habbit of biting my lips so always my lips are wonded, the girl was offering me some pleasure with her which gave me an impression that she is not only a massage girl, and i realized that she is a sex worker too, and i started worrying about this and assume some of her body fluid could find its way to my body
Q- can this transfere the hiv to me?(i have heard that HIV could transfer through wound and un healthy skin ).
Q- does any body fluid could pass through that boil or carbuncles, e.g her brast milk, blood from non seen wond, vaginal fluid) Q-what if during the massage session her under ware slipped a littel bet and vagina flud came in contact with my body and find its way to the anus or the boil etc
Q- do i need to do testing? 

HIV Home Testing Kit

About a month ago, I sucked on the nipple of a female sex worker and realised a bit of secretion came out of her breast - I could taste it on my tongue, I immediately spit it out. Since then, I have shown no early symptoms of HIV whatsoever. 
Recently, I purchased an HIV Home Test Kit that uses a saliva swab. The results were quite confusing to me. My questions are:-
1) Was my above exposure a potential risk of HIV transmission?
2) How accurate are the Home Test HIV Kits that use saliva to determine the results?
Please advise,
Thank you.
