Low risk

half slippage

I had an encounter with another guy of unkonwn status. I was the insertive and used condom during all the intercourse. The condom did not break ( I checked it after having sex) but I found out that during the intercourse the condom was partially slipped ( like 2.5 cm from the base of the shaft). Given that scenario, there would be an extra risk for hiv transmission ( from the bottom to the top).

Oral and fingering risk

Before sex and after sex, I brushed my teeth a bit too hard, and I could taste my own blood. I performed oral sex on a girl with unknown status, and I also deep fingered her. The day before, I cut my nails too deep and it bleed a little. I am WSW, but she had a few male and female partner before. Not too sure if relevant, but she also always brush her teeth after and before sex. Around two weeks after, I feel muscle ache that lasted for a day, and I got persistent sore throat that lasted almost a month.Should I get tested?

Fleshlight and HIV

Hello. I entered my penis a fleshlight that my friend used after he has just ejaculated into it (There was no other sexual activity involved). Unfortunately, I do not know whether he is HIV positive, and due to my tight foreskin, I was unable to enter fully. However, I am not sure whether I will be HIV positive as:
1. My penis technically touched my friend's pre cum
2. the fact that my penis struggled to pull down means that the penis could be teared off (small leaks on the foreskin that hiv can enter my body through his premium)
3. I am not sure whether the HIV virus is dead as the semen and pre cum are technically out of his body (inside the flashlight) after ejaculation.

Based on my information, am I highly in risk for HIV? Hope to hear from you, Thanks!

19 years

Around 19 years ago, I had a sexual encounter with another guy of unknown
status. No anal intercourse, just mutual masturbation and unprotected oral
sex. He cum on my face resulting some of his semen splashed on my lips and
mouth, which I spat. At the point I thought that any CBC would include hiv
test so I have been tested blood every two-three years since the incident,
all my White cell count and lymphocite cellcount have result in normal range
since them, all other parametres as well. After that encounter I always had
safer sex ( mutual masturbation and sometimes protected anal intercourse,
wirh me being the insertive). However, I can remebme that after few months of
that incident ( 3 or four months) I started feelings my lymph nodes become
enlarged ( That ist hereasonI tested the first time, I thought any blood test
would include hiv test). Obviosly on my CBC result a bout hiv, which did not
appeared so I asume It was negative ( mistake) and all parametres were in
range. After that I decided to get a CBC more frequently. All parametres has
been ok ,even my GP has congratulated my because all the results.
The point is that I realised few months ago that a simple CBC does not
include hiv test, and I rembember that a few months after the incident suffer
several lymh nodes in neck and armpit during almost one year.
As I have said after that I always practiced safer sex ( mutual masturbation
and occasionally protected insertive anal sex), so I guess my only risk
exposure was the one I related. It ispossible to be infected and asymptomatic
after almost that period oftime.

Latex condom effectiveness

I will specify my question in more detail.I want to ask that if Latex condom is used everytime during vigianal sex and if it used scientifically correct and if that condom dose not slip ,broke then also that condom not give 100 % protection against hiv in that specific sexual act ??? Though latex is impermeable to hiv virus .
Sorry for repeated question ,i have search a lot on CDC website and other reputed Healthcare and jiv helping website no one is providing specific answer . If latex is 100 % impermeable to HIV and if that latex condom use correctly and if it dose not slip or brake during that vigianal sexual act then why that viginal sexual act is not 100 % jiv preventive ????

wound on body is big and deep

Some articles on Internet say that if the wound on body is big and deep, and the bleeding is very serious, you will have chance to contract HIV when your wound is contacted by people's blood who is HIV +. Do you agree it? Is there anyone who gets HIV infection by blood contact through his or her wound on body in the world?

John (Protected Sex)

I went to a massage parlor which had a Thai therapist. We have sex with condom on but I didn’t finish (although she finished multiples times).
Condom (which was half way on the dick as the condom was little lose. She removed the condom and gave me a blow job. She cut my penis head as she was wearing braces (this I later realized). Finally she gave me an oil hand job.
Now I am scared that I may have gotten hiv as when she removed the condom the bodily fluids from sex might have been there on my penis and then she gave me a blow job with a cut on my penis. Might have exposed my penis blood stream to the virus.
Is there any chances I could get hiv from this??.
I am really worried couldn’t sleep for days

hiv risk, vaginal fluid come to contact with location of herpes outbreak

Hi. last year I contracted herpes at the base of the shaft of the penis where it is not covered by condom(lower bladder area).
I abstain from sex when outbreaks happen and I always use condom.
how ever last month I had a protected sex with a female sex worker, I noticed that her vaginal fluid come to contact with the location where my herpes outbreaks always happen(no active lesion at that time).
I read online that having herpes increases risk of hiv transmission even if the active lesions are not present.
I wanted to know my risk from the above mentioned event.


needle sharing vs wound to wound

If open wound came in contact with an HIV-positive athlete who is bleeding, the odds of transmission would be less than 0.3 percent so it is the same as for needle sharing. So why many of needle sharing cases were confirmed as route of HIV transmission and never any case when wound came in contact with a HIV positive blood?
