Needle Exchange

Having night sweats,fatigue,and sore throat for more than 30 days ,but the result is HIV negative

Two months ago I had a sexual experience with a sex worker ,i was having full safety precaution.During intercourse my partner pinched me with a needle and she just smiled. I don't know why ,both of them were drunked. i even don't know who is she ,where she comes from,and weather she is having HIV positive .her age is 28 .I just leave it casually, but a month after i just experience night sweats,sore throat and feel fatigue for more than 30 days and i made medical check up (HIV & VDRL) twice in a month that is with agap of 15 days both are negative .The problem is can i donate blood for any emergency situation.

Needle poke with no blood drawn

Can you get HIV if you come in contact with an HIV+ needle without it causing you to bleed? I got scratched by a needle from a guy that was HIV+. It barely scratched the surface of my skin and didn't ever bleed. I washed my hands immediately. Can i still get HIV from this?

Suspected needle scratch

I'm a medical practitioner, was securing iv access for a patient with a background of rape 19 days ago...i was trying to cap the cannula and felt the needle scratch through my gloved hands precisely the thumb. After securing the line. I examined it..didn't see any scratch...It didn't bleed even when I applied pressure. I'm worried out of my mind. Should I be?
