Oral sex and HIV

5 weeks ago, I had oral sex with a guy for who I discover later MIGHT be HIV positive. It was just oral sex included and no contact of mine and his genitals was made. After that I started receiving a symptoms such as cough, throat swollen, unusual vaginal discharge (dark brown/black) at the time my period should come and I got very odd skin rash on my hand. My question is because I am not 100% sure is he HIV positive, if he is what are the chances that I got infection just by giving him an oral sex?

hiv risk after scratch in groin

I had sexual encounter with sex worker in Pattaya, Thailand. It was a soapy massage in which first we both get into tub naked and wash each other. Then she made me lie down a plastic mattress and slide upon my bare body by her bare body. She did all kind body to body rubbing while covered in soap. she was also rubbing her genitals on my genital . Now after washing with water she gave me towel to wipe. And she used another towel to wipe her . Afterwards we had protected sex on the bed. Next day i noticed abrassion or you may call it scratch on my inner thigh /groin area which was looking red but it was not bleeding , it may be caused by her intense rubbing by her pubic hairs cause while she was clean shaven down but one small area/patch in her pubic region was not clean shaven and it was very small needly like pubic hairs. So that must be reason. So is there any risk involved due to cut while genital rubbing and may be some fluid of her touched my scratched area .

But now i am worried if I am at risk . Cause after 2weeks i stared to have itchiness around neck but they used to come and go but i never scratched them And some type of feeling that my throat is behaving differently.i read all these symptoms over the net and i worried to death if I actually had been infected. Also my hunger is not the same any more.

So i got tested for ELISA which i think was a 4th genration p24 and antibody . The test was done after 33 days and result said non reactive. is this report ok to be relied on? .

Please reply my message . Now today that is 25 may 2016 its been 46 days. The present situation is that there are some very few pimple like small lesions things on my upper shoulder which do not itch . I did not yet got flu , fever, nose running or muscle ache.

Thanks for reading my message hope you create awareness like this all the time. God bless

Hiv testing at 7 weeks accuracy? 4th generation test. Feeling symptoms

Hello. First of all thank you! I have a couple questions about HIV test and accuracy and window period and systompms.
I'm a gay men of age 22. Living in the USA.
On April 5th of 2016 I had intercouse with two guys. I was the reciver. We used condoms I never saw the comdom being broken but I have so many thoughts going through my head. Both of the guys said that there HIV negative. That night after we were done I went home and to the bathroom to go number two I noticed I had popped something that looked like cum and it was whitish and yellowish. I clean it out with soap and water. I was so scare I had asked the guys several times they said that they are not and not they won't reply anymore . It was a night stand. Ever since I have regrets and gilt. So I Waited almost a moth be more specific exactly at 27 days to get tested on May 2 2016 I went down to the clinic to get tested for HIV. I had asked to do a blood test. They took blood out of my arm and they sent it to the lab. The test that was done was the 4th generation test and they also did a rapid test as well..they were able to give me the results for the rapid test. I went back into the clinic on May 4th to get my result but originality I was going to go there to get another rapid test because I could not wait for the results any longer they did another rapid test and thank God it was negative. When the clinician took me into the room to tell me about my results and told me they had received my test from the lab and they were both negative the rapid and the 4th generation test. I was so happy at the moment. But a couple weeks later I noticed that my glands around my neck were hurting that was on May 21 and 22 . I have not experience any flu symptoms but i do have a pain in near my armpit and pain near my neck. And also I have constant headaches. I have also notice that my body feels itch and I also noticed a big red spot on my nose it kind of looked a pimple. I tried popping it by nothing came out. Not looks all brown and it's pretty big. I'm really worried that it could be a symptom of HIV. The following morning on May 23 2016 I went down to the clinic the day after I I felt the pain on my neck I went down to the clinic to get another test done they did an HIV rapid test where they took some blood out of my finger. For both rapid test they did took blood out of finger. the test came back negative. Right at the 7 weeks mark. Today on May 24th 2016 I went to another doctor and I had told him about my situation I asked him for another HIV test he did the western bolt test. I'm really scare of the outcome! I've Been feeling overwhelmed. I haven't had sex with anyone's ever since. The doctor asked me to come back on Thursday. May 27th
My question is what are the chances of it coming back with a scary results? Like positive? The doctor told me that having 3 negative results is s good sing but I honestly don't know what to believe anymore. I'm so scare I want to cry about it. Should be worried? I don't want to look online anymore it's making me feel more overwhelmed. Can you guys tell me anything that I can do feel better? And are those good signs? Thank you.

Risk on HIV? Series of encounters with the same person/girl.

Hello everybody, I hope you're doing well.
I would very much like to ask you a few questions concerning a series of encounters I've had lately with a girl(friend) whose HIV status is unknown to me.

I know you get a million questions always addressing the same topics, but so far my anxiety levels are getting a hold of me, reason why in the end I've decided to write you.

Here goes (and many thanks in advance):

1 - Does fingering a girl with a small (non bleeding, but healing) cut in your finger pose a risk for HIV?
2 - Does getting an unprotected blowjob pose a risk? What about strong-ish lip-bites and hickies from the both of us?
3 - Does dry humping pose a risk for HIV? With both of us in our underwear? She was very lubricated and I had some pre-cum in my boxer shorts too. I recall at a certain point a bit of penetration going on, despite the obstacle our undies presented. It wasn't just the rubbing, but also some attempts at penetration...
4 - What about pregnancy? Can it happen in the situation described on "3"? [I cannot remember by now, but let's assume my hands had been in contact with my semen [not wet] by the time I also fingered her.]
5 - In the end, a week later after "3" we ended up having real sex (protected). But, with all the excitement I recall the first condom being put inside out. Risk for HIV?
I swapped it immediately after by another; by then correctly placed. I recall both our hands having been in contact by both our fluids (hers, most importantly). Risk for HIV? What about for pregnancy? [I cannot tell for sure but I think both our hands were not "actively" wet on bodily fluids.]
6 - The day after "5" we had sex again and this time I ejaculated (protected, once more). We went for seconds and again, on both occasions, the condom was placed with my hands dirty from both our fluids (hers, most importantly; and mine, from the first orgasm). Risk for HIV? What about for pregnancy? [I cannot tell for sure but I think both our hands were not "actively" wet on bodily fluids.]
7 - What about giving oral sex? She asked me to but I already knew in advance that giving is potentially more dangerous than receiving. I ended up choosing to masturbate her only, with a bit of fondling by my nose. Does this pose a risk, considering her fluids were in contact with the mucus of my nose?

I'm a little (very) scared because on all of these 4 condoms I only checked the validity date in *one* of them (manufacted in 2013, expiry date in 2017).
(I never noticed for any ruptures or cracks in the condoms after removing them.)

Tomorrow will be day 15 (2 weeks mark) since we've started getting more intimate (the dry humping episode) and I've been developing some sore throat + flu/cold like symptoms since last Saturday - and I know there's a fever coming in any day now.
... 11 days after we've had the dry humping episode. 3 days after having had sex for the first time.

Important note: she's been sick too recently and has had at least 2 different partners (protected, she claimed) in the past 3 months.

Deep down in my gut I have the impression I've taken precautions in all events, but doubts still float around due to fear.

I know for sure (100% sure) prior to these episodes I wasn't HIV positive.

8 - In the meantime we've agreed to give one another the reassurance of running HIV tests. I'll be below the 3 month mark. For her, 4 weeks ever since we've met (assuming she hasn't had anyone else in the meantime). If she turns out to be negative, is it somewhat safe for me to draw some indirect conclusions?
9 - Is it or is it not a good indicator if a person is negative by week 4? I've read some much info about weeks 4, 6 8 and finally 12; it's stressing/mis-leading to say the least.
10 - I've also read about the accuracy a 4th gen 95% test gives by week 4. What makes up for the final 5%?...

Because I don't know about her history, and read also in the meantime that during the window period the danger of infecting others can sky rocket by up to 26 times; here's where my preoccupation lies (yep, I've been doing a lot of reading)...

Again, please accept my deepest and sincere gratitude in any clarification you might shed, especially because of the ridiculous amount of questions I placed.
Yours,
DD

Am I at Risk?

First time had sex(With Condom) with a call girl a month ago. She gave me a blow job without a Condom for 2 minutes and again with a condom for 1 minute. After that we had a protected vaginal sex for very short time, say 2-3 minutes because I started feeling nervous. The moment I ejaculated, reached home in 10 minutes and had a bath quickly. Am I at any sorts of risk for HIV? Or I am just getting nervous.Please answer quickly

Stick and poke from somebody with HIV

I was in county jail and was very bored. I let a man stick and poke a small tattoo on my wrist. after to find out he had HIV. What are my chances of being infected... he washed his hands often and i never saw any blood on his fingers.
very nervous please help.

rare or low risk

I recently wrote in about performing oral sex with ejaculation(swallowing) and testing was not recomended. I went ahead and tested at 43 days after exposure anyways and my test came back non reactive. Like many others I thought my worries would be gone after this yet here I am again with more questions. I apologize in advance if they seem repetitive of others inquiries before.

1. The test taken says HIV1 / 2 ag/ab combo screen. What generation test is this and at 43 days is this conclusive for oral sex?

2. Because my test was taken at 43 days does that mean either the antigen or antibodies would have surely showed up by this time? What would take them longer to show up?

3. Ive read answers on this forum that say 6 weeks is conclusive but if you've been at high risk to test out to 12. Why does the risk have effect on timing ?

4. At the fourth week after exposure I was extremely naseous and fatigued for a couple days. Testing was about two weeks after this. If this was in fact ars would the test have came back reactive?

5. The only reason I am still worrying is because of my constant white tongue. I know symptoms are not used as diagnosis but is this common in early HIV or shows up after years of having the virus? Would this be a reason to retest?

6. Is 6 months too long to wait to retest, could someone get deathly sick in this short time period?

7. Lastly why are some oral exposures recommended testing when others like mine where there was ejaculation and a sore throat present not? Is HIV from oral rare or low risk...

Thank you for your time. Your responses really help me and a lot of people who are struggling or not well informed.
