Hello, I have been tested for HIV here in the Caribbean Islands. I don't know how safe practices are in use here, the building was not in good condition and health clinic had cotton swabs dipped in alcohol and was not a pleasant atmosphere to get tested at. but i wanted to get tested so i got 4th generation test and a uni-gold test at the same time at the same clinic. their policy is to test any patient with 2 HIV test to rule out false negative. I recently saw a outbreak of HIV in a 3rd world country where needles where shared and people got HIV. I didn't let them draw any type of blood from a syringe. But they use the "Lancet" to pink prick my finger, I always get paranoid where i am in this kind of situation. Can you tell me if "Lancet's" are reusable ? or any chance of possibility of them using them ? there were bunch on them in a container. should i be concerned in this situation ? ever since i read about recent HIV outbreak, i am really concerned. Will the cotton swabs or tables or any atmosphere in the clinic would place me at risk ? should i get tested again ? please advise me! really concerned. Thanks for this service.
Hello about 3 weeks ago now I had sex with an Asian escort which I now regret.. we both had herpes so I wasn’t worried about getting that again but I am now worried I have hiv. I used a condom the whole time however I read that you can get hiv through herpes sores? But have I been put at risk I used a condom. Been having headaches and small red spots on arm.
I was doing a pap test when all of a sudden there is some bleeding, and it splashes into my left eye. I don't know the status of the patient, but what are my chances if this person is HIV - vs HIV +? Is it possible to contract HIV this way? I'm thinking that the mucous membrane of my eye is a entry point.
I am a male, had a protected the vaginal sex with CSW.
But the condom broke , we stopped as soon as we realized.
Not sure how long the exposure was.
This is my only exposure.
I was under tremendous stress & anxiety since then.
I had done the 4th generation DUO test at the lab (in the US at LabCorp) after 6 weeks.
I did another test at the lab (in the US at LabCorp) after 10 weeks & 3 days.
Both the test results came as NonReactive.
Are my results conclusive ?
Should I test again after 12 weeks?
What are the changes of the this result changing from NonReactive between 10th week & 12 week.
I had sex with a girl unknown status, one night 4 times, but every time used a new condom, at every trip checked it was not broken. after exposure, at 7 day i went to an exhibition where thousands of people visit every day .at 11th and 12th day from exposure started dry cough, ( not sure there was) fever or not, doctor give me amoxicillin, next day (13th day from exposure) at noon i felt cold, i checked my temperature it was 38.2 from oral, I bought parastomal and took at noon the fever goes down at 37.4, but at evening again fever 38.2,i took again at night it dropped at 37.3, then morning at day 14th there was again fever 38.0 and there was 2 ulcer in my throat painful with white color when I get up in morning, i took amoxicillin, and parastomal at 14th day fever goes down, at 37.5 at noon and evening i took medicine again, and at 15th day fever goes away, and at 16th day ulcer goes away, i used one chinese medicine for ulcer, There were no rashes, was little pain in body, and head, (maybe cause of cold because i stayed whole day outside, or maybe viral infection) ...
had fever 3 days, 2nd day ulcer in throat, what do you think is this ARS ? or could be common cold virus? I know it not possible to get idea about HIV from symptoms, but just want know your expert opinion, does it look like ARS or common cold?
i had sex with a random girl around 2 months ago and it was protected and the next day i got sick i got a bit of sore throat starting but i took some medicen and got better but i felt tired and feverish for a week . after that i got better and its been 2 months now and sometimes i get sore throat and sometimes i feel week and tired and now i have got swollen lymph nodes after 2.5 months. i worry a-lot in my life i feel anxious.
i have posted this question before but nobody answered.
Thanks a lot team for the work you people are doing.
I had a sex with CSW . She looked healthy . While having sex the condom got punctured and she was the one who said the condom is broken . So then we changed the punctured condom and After we were done everything was ok . But after 3-4 days when I was masturbating i felt the slight pain on my penis and with in next 2-3 days I got some white substance coming out of Penis and I felt burning sensation while Peeing . So the next day I went to the Doc . HE gave me Disodium Hydrogen Citrate syrup for UTI and Fluconazole 200 Mg tab and Eberconazole 1% for Fungal Infection he diagnosed . He also asked about if I had any Sexual contact and I said yes. He was ok with it .
After 5 days there was a much of improvement . But yeast was still seen at my Penis . So I thought to change the doctor . My new doctor said that I am suffering from Balanoposthitis and he changed my pills and said me to come after 4 weeks with test of HIV . I am very scared and I don,t know what to do . I have read alot about the symptoms of HIV on net . I am in my 3rd week of the sexual exposure . And i feel like I have been suffering from symptoms like Sweating in Palms and in body at night and 3-4 rashes on my body including two on my hand and there is alot of back ache rest I dont see any other symptoms . Please help me I am very depressed
Thanks in Advance
I would first like to thank you all for the amazing work!
I am an Indian Male and I had a sexual encounter with a woman of unknown HIV Status. During the intercourse I used 'Thril' Premium Condoms which were bought from local Medical Store. On the back side of the condom pack I found the details i.e., Batch No.: 5616 TH, Mfg. Date: 08/2016, Exp. Date: 07/2019. Manufactured By: JK Ansell Privited Ltd. Marketed By: Population Health Services (India).
But, there is no information about the product made of material. Therefore, I am confused about the certain things about the product mentioned below:
1) The “Thril” Premium Condoms made of which material ? (Latex/Polyurethane/Polyisoprene/Lambskin)
2) These “Thril” Premium Condoms come with Spermicides?
3) Are these “Thril” Premium Condoms protect from STDs and HIV?
4) Can I consider this intercourse was Safe ?
For these queries I searched in net and manufactures website, but didn't get any information. I am trying to contact you through your emails : firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com. But your bulk spam firewall system blocking my mail to reach you. The sent mail is being bounced back. Please provide your email details and look in the matter of Spam firewall.
i had sex with an escort and we had sex with condom, and after she gave a blowjob with condom on but then removed the condom and spited on my penis and gave me an handjob is it possible to get an std from that?
I was manic for a while and got involved with some dom/sub play with another guy in my area. He collected some cum in a container about 3 days before I came over and kept it in the fridge. I wound up being convinced to swallow it. We then had protected sex.
My question is would the refrigerated cum be a large risk factor? I tested with the INSTI test 32 days post exposure and it was non reactive. My only concern is that on one side of my neck I can now feel my lymph node which is about the size of a pea, but not painful. Thanks for any help you can give.
