I want to ask you some questions. I was wondering about transmission trought kissing. I know, that it's like a no risk activity, even if there are blood from HIV positive person and just small cuts in mouth of HIV negative person, is that right? Because everywhere you wrote, that HIV needs to be transmited into bloodstream of HIV negative person, so trought some really big cuts, that have HIV negative person and that needs stitches? Or for example after some dentist's surgery, right? Not just trought some small cuts, hardly noticeable? Please, answer to all my questions. Thank you!
Hi, I am deeply concerned about the HIV test that I gave blood for currently. Totally paranoid, can't sleep and symptoms match so perfectly I have given up any hope for negative result. I had a protected vaginal intercourse and an unprotected oral sex from an escort in the middle of august. In the month of September I noticed my lipomas increasing on my body. One grew on jawbone so I got it checked by a doctor and he suggested that was not lipoma but mostly swollen lymph node as it decreased in size as well that was early october (7 weeks). Then I got rash on my back like 2 cms which soothes when I apply cream. On middle of october I got annual blood word done and also took flu shot and tdap vaccine. I got very tired that weak, extreme fatigue. Met doctor again and she suggested wait a week if symptoms improve. It did not I got an ultrasound done end of october , it noticed enlarged liver but nothing else. first week of november (11 weeks), doctor suggested I take hiv test as symptoms are very similar to hiv, I am not waiting for results but completely losing my mind over being positive. More read online about symptoms mine match with most of them. I get joint pains, sometimes shortness of breath. I am not sure about escort's status but I am very much afraid whether I caught anything and gave it to my wife in september when there were no symptoms and since I had protected sex I did not even think about catching it. Of course I am waiting for my test results which it seems would take a week as they do both elisa and western blot, but I would like to know your opinion about my situation.
I had a risky exposure with a commercial sex worker on Aug 6th 2018.I had protected Vaginal sex but i licked her vagina with a lotion this was unprotected.Afterwards washed my eyes in the bathroom .My eyes became red still experience eye pain even now. I had night sweats,body warmness,fever 97-99 and rashes now there are present under my left arm near my back.
Performed hiv elisa p24 antigen and antibodies test after 12 weeks at 86 days. Result is negative.But still experience the symptoms cold,cough which persist daily. Thinking of hiv everyday are my results Conclusive.Also did hiv 1 pcr rna qualitative on 76 th day which was negative less than 35 copies.
I am nervous because I had oral sex with a man who was undetected for 30 years but he did not tell me until after it happened. He performed it on my penis and I only did it oral to his anus. We had a heavy make out session and he came on his body, but some of it got on me and I wiped it off with a towel. A week later I have some chest pain and my tongue is white with some bumps on the back of the tongue. Is it too late for prep?! What can I do?
Should I consider test if I were mugged by few guys and I get injury? My hand was covered with blood, I didn't see any blood from attacker, but due to fact that my hand was bleeding, I did not recognise if whole this blood was mine or could be mixed with someone else blood.
Should I be tested if I did not saw any large amount of others blood?
Good day dears,
First of all, let me say that I'm slowly dying since I gave oral sex to another gay guy 3 months ago.
In the meantime, I've been constantly reading and exploring about my possible HIV exposure.
At the moment of the exposure, no blood noticed in my mouth, only odor coming from my wisdom crowns. I have crowns all aroung the mouth, excluding the front teeth (up and down).
I may have gingivitis, which isn't something blood-related, only one spot of gingiva looks reddish.
Okay, I don't know what to say, since I'm so anxious I can't breath. I want to go get tested but I'm so scared, since I experienced sore throat with no fever (maybe 37.2 Celsius one day) but I was constantly feeling hot, thinking this is ARS related. I was so scared, searching for symptoms and maybe anxiety made them show up.
There was not ejaculation in my mouth, but there must have been pre-ejaculation...
I'm constantly reading your forum and I must say that you all are giving a lot of good informations, this is a perfect place to ask! Thank YOU all !
So... Is gingivitis considered an open wound? Gingiva bleeding but not too much? Or what are you talking about is a big, open, gaping wound inside the mouth for a chance of transmition? I'm confused, scared to death. I can't sleep, eat, talk... My life became a big, deep, dark hole.
Okay diving into the main part i had a unprotected sex with a girl...20 days ago.later i got so worried about hiv so i asked her if she had a past she told she always had protected sex and she told she had sex with a guy 4 days ago prior to me. I was told hiv transmission would be high in acute stage of infection. So my question if she was lying about the protected sex thing. Would she still transmit the virus at higher rate (because it has been just 4 days she might have got the virus) and she was so kind that she got herself tested (cmia methord which dignoses both ag and ab) on 19th day after she had sex with the other guy and result was negative i have done my dna proviral after 14 days of exposure and the result came negative .
I had protected vaginal sex with a CSW. On the 20th day, I got a negative result for 4th Gen Combo Ag/Ab lab blood test. Another negative result for Rapid 4th Gen Alere Combo on the 48th day. Do I need more testing? What is the likelihood after 3 months it will turn positive?
I wanted to ask you some questions.
1) I was drunk and I kissed (really deep and for a couple of minutes) guy, whose HIV status I don't know, but let's say, he was positive and he didn't know about it. I am worried because I can't remember, because of drunkness, if there was any blood, but I am suffering from cuts in my mouth, so it is really probably that there was some. How many of blood must be there transmitted to be exposed to some risk?
2) I come home in the early morning, so I brushed my teeth maybe after 10 hours after the incident. Could it affect anything?
Thank you very much!
one hour before oral sex i had brushed my teeth and i had realized that there was a blood dripping from my gum however i had rinse it with an antiseptic mouthwash. An hour later, i had given a negative HIV man an oral sex. Four weeks later, i had developed a cold symptoms with muscle ache, sore throat and feeling abit tired. Despite of that, i had a great appetite for food and i still have an energy to go to the gym. Do you think i might have a great chances of getting an HIV infection
