Finger and BJ

My friend gave me a one night a sex worker. The girl gave me a blowjob with condom on my penis. I have sucked her nipples. I also fingered her. I am worried what if that woman has HIV. I also noticed that she have stretch marks in her tummy so I assumed she recently gave birth to a child. Am I infected?

HIV worried


Recently i visited Vietnam for official work, in a massage parlor i had massage followed by protected vaginal sex with the massage girl for just 2-3 mints then i ejaculate in condom. ( its said that duo to legal formalities in Vietnam, it is compulsory for every massage girl to produce a health certificate including HIV etc on 3/6 months basis, i don't know how much its correct or if these girls produce a genuine certificate or fake just to get a job).
Now i am freaking out because just before 5-6 hours i had shaved my pubic hair at base & shaft of panis (without any cut/bleeding with naked eyes).
I did not feel any ARS symptoms, due to extreme anxiety i had Rapid HIV blood tests at 6,7,8,9,10 & 11th week & HBsAg at 9,10,& 11 week which all were negative, from three different hospitals just to be sure that these test are correct.
My question are as follows.
1) Is there any risk of transmitting STD through this microscopic shaving cuts considering the vaginal fluid come in contact with this part,as condom may not cover the whole shaft.
2) Do you think these tests are conclusive? any further testing is required?
Please help me

Question about ARS period

I would like to know, is it possible to have ARS at 11-12 weeks after protected vaginal sex with a sex worker. I had sex on August 7th and 17th with sex workers on different occasions. I am a 20 year old male.
Since then I have been tested 4 times with 4th generation Abbott test. 3.5 and 5 weeks (first test), 6 and 7.5 weeks (second test), 8 and 9.5 weeks (third test), and 11 and 12.5 weeks (forth test) after those intercourses.

Last week at 11 and 12.5 weeks I started having weird symptoms. First, I was feeling extremely thirsty for a couple of days and later on had some weak sore throat and my ears were getting plugged. I had an appointment with my doctor, blood test for glucose and blood count, everything seems normal, he said I had some inflammation in my nose and that affected my throat. Doctor said that I could possibly have allergies. After 2 days I started sneezing, having runny and stuffy nose, watery eyes, facial pressure and fatigue. I started taking Allegra 180mg fexofenadine medicine (for allergies), I started feeling better after a couple of days but while taking this medicine in addition to my previous symptoms I had headache, nausea (one night), mouth ulcer, and mildly inflamed throat (no sore throat). I saw my doctor again today and he said I might had a virus that made me have allergic reaction but now I am slowly getting better. I was really freaked out during those days so I twice took the Oraquick home hiv tests and negative results.
I have 2 questions
1) Today I noticed a very small lymph node on my neck (left side) when I turn my head right, it is not visible when I keep my head straight and I probably would never notice it (I was actually checking my neck for possible nodes). Doctor looked at it today, did not say anything about it. (it was not anything serious). Could that be a possible sign? Again it is small and noticeable
2) Is it even possible to have ARS at 11-12 weeks, and does those symptoms match? I had no fever, or body pain. I feel pretty healthy after taking allergy medicine, it is just I am not 100% if I had allergy since I never had it before. I have been tested with a 4th gen test 4 times in last 2 months. Last time on week 11 and 12.5. If I would have the virus, it would probably show up as p24 at least on one of them... I am very anxious about this. I know that my chances are extremely low, with protected sex, and so many negative results, and 11 weeks since that act, it is just I am really worried.

Thank you

hiv duo at 40 days

Dear Sir/Madam,
I have done a stupidest thing,I had 4 sexual encounters with 4 different sex workers and each sexual encounter was at a gap of approximately 1 week and all sexual encounters was done using condom. My last sexual exposure was on 25th September. From 26th onwards i have different symptoms like a rash on chest ,fatigue, ill like feeling and itchy rashes on my penis and anus,white thrush on backside of my tongue .After 18 days of my last sexual encounter I had RNA PCR qualitative test and the result came as "not detected" later on day 40 after of my last sexual encounter I had 4th generation HIV DUO test which came as non reactive and index value is 0.16.I heard that hiv duo test at 6 weeks is conclusive,is my HIV DUO test is conclusive?or should i have to test again? please reply and help me, thanks in advance.


Please read below. The person that asked the question excluded needles and syringes as objects and simply asked that any object with the exception of syringes would be no risk yet in the answer it says NEGLIGIBLE vs NO risk............why is this inconsistent with most if not all other answers that says HIV is not transferable by an object and requires human to human contact? This negligible risk contradicts previous answers??????

So is touching blood on an object that was there just a second or two earlier and then into a cut a risk or not as the person asked below? Is Any object that is NOT a syringe, NO risk or negligible risk if seconds hold fluid on object goes into open active cut?

Original question/answer below

Object And Surface
Thursday, November 5th
HIV Transmission
Negligible risk
HIV is never transmitted from objects (except needle and syringe) or surfaces, because any fluids on it will be exposed to air, thus virus is not transmissible any more? Is it right?
Even if i have bleeding cut on my skin and that cut contacts with such objects or surfaces, i am still safe?
Short query: Any object (not needle and syringe) and surface are always safe from HIV?

Hi there and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Online Helpline.

There is no risk of HIV from touching objects that may have come into contact with bodily fluids while having small cuts. This is because HIV in bodily fluids (such as blood or semen) becomes non-transmissible when it is exposed to the air. Any bodily fluids on objects would have been exposed to the air and would not contain transmissible HIV. The only exception to this would be if an object had areas within it that could trap a bodily fluid and was then used internally. This is possible with needles (blood remains in the barrel of the needle and then goes into the bloodstream of the person who uses the needle next without being exposed to the air). There has also been speculation that there could be a risk of this nature from sharing sex toys if there is some form of hole in them that could trap bodily fluids, but there has not been a reported case of transmission of this nature in British Columbia.


Sir , I had a slip of condom and inserted my penis twice inside a bar girls vagina.. Do I have chances for getting hiv ... Please help ..

cunnilingus, 6 weeks test, freaking out

Hi, I really appreciate your work.

I did cunnilingus on a stripper few weeks ago for couple of minutes, then I got into my sense and stopped it.

I started freaking out and got tested with an antibodies test at 6 weeks, it was negative. How reliable was my test? Do i need to test again at 3 month? Worried, please answer these questions

precum into herpes sore

I am gay and recently had mutual masturbation, frottage and being fingered with another guy in sauna. The next day I realised I had an outbreak of a couple of Herpes ulcers/sores around my anus one which was bleeding.( I was diagnosed with herpes in last few weeks).

His penis was touching my anus and rubbing against it a few times after being fingered by him. My worry is that I might have got some precum into the sore and might be fresh cut and bleeding!!!. We are sweating so it's difficult to know if precum existed.

I am not sure of the other guys hiv status. What are the chances of HIV infection through precum into a herpes sore and cut? Are they really high? We were only touching each other this way for a 15 minutes. I am really worried since I know it's a much higher risk to contract hiv whilst having an herpes outbreak especially since I was bleeding the next day.

I would very much appreciate a second opinion from you too find out the risk factors and the chances I could have contracted HIV. The more I read about it on the internet the more worried I get.

oral sex

I'm HIV+ . I recently met a guy who proved to me that he was hiv-. He thinks that I'm hiv- as well. After 3months of dating we had sex; with a condom though. My concern is he performed oral sex where he put his tongue into my vagina licking and sucking. This was a nice experience but m worried that he might be infected. Every time we have sex he likes to do oral sex 1st. He refuse if I ask him not 2 do it. Please help me. How do I tell him 2 stop doing it cos I don't want him 2 be infected
