HIV transmission through sharing a joint

Hi, Actually Im worried about the scenario that happened with me. So me and my buddy were sharing a joint together and my buddy is sexually very active and had sex with a lot of strangers so I don’t know if he’s HIV positive or not. Actually what happened was that we were in the car and he ignited the joint and took 4-5 puffs from it and then passed it to me right away . I smoked a lot instantly and then same thing passed it to him he smoked and finally I finished the joint. after that we went home and I saw that my buddy has a cut on his lip with blood on it. moreover he might have cuts or sores in his mouth and blood from his lips or mouth may have got onto the joint while sharing the joint back and forth twice and entered in my mouth when I smoked the joint. Thing is I have bleeding gums and blood from the joint may have came in contact with my gums and entered in my bloodstream. My gums doesn’t bleed profusely but still bleeds sometimes here and there. so my question is what are the chances of getting HIV from the scenario explained? Im really really really worried.

HIV risk from grinding

Hie. Thank you so much for this platform. I have a very serious question. I met this girl. So one day she came over to my house, she was on her period. So we briefly kissed then afterwards. She sat on me and started grinding on my penis we were both fully clothed she was wearing a sanitary pad, underwear and dress and I was wearing my boxers and jeans. After a few minutes I decided I want to finger her. So as she undressed I didn't see any blood stain (from the period) on her panties but I did see her remove her sanitary pad. So I put on some latex glove and proceeded to do so. After fingering I noticed a little blood and vaginal fluid on the glove. I immediately stopped then removed the glove. I'm sure the glove didn't leak as I didn't see anything on my finger. Fast forward a few weeks later I woke up with a sore throat (no other symptoms) that only lasted that day. It was sore on the left side mostly but as the day progressed it ended. The next day I was fine, no other symptoms. My concerns about this very stupid incident are as follows:

1. Since she was having her period, when she grinded against me, could there have been some little at the back of her sanitary pad which would have seeped through her underwear, then her dress, then onto my jeans, then onto my boxers and found itself into one of my mucous membranes on my penis. I dont recall seeing any blood on my jeans but I dont remember.. I read somewhere that HIV cant be transmitted through clothing but is it possible that the little viral particles could have found their way through the pores of fabric and onto my penis?

2. I purchased the latex gloves from a pharmacy and they were in a plastic bag in my closet (which is cool). They never broke and I didnt see any liquid seep through. I remember on the finger I used to finger her I had a minor peeling on the eponychium (hangnail). It had been like that for many weeks, but there was no blood though.

3. The sore throat still worries me. It was the only symptom and only lasted a day. Could it have been ARS

My life has been a living nightmare ever since. I am so afraid all the time I could have been exposed, please help me. Should I get tested?

Elisa on the 84th day? Is it conclusive?

Hi!

On 10-11 September night (2016) I kissed and give a guy a handjob! He did not ejaculate, but there was a lot of precum. I do not remember if I had any cuts/abrasions on my hand. Also, he touched my panties where the vagina was with his finger and I do not remember If he had touched his penis before.

On December 2, 2016 - he TOLD me he took a combo CMIA Hiv test that was negative.
On December 3, 2016 - I took an ELISA - I think it was 3rd generation, but I am not sure. Might have been 4th.

So, I took my test exactly on the 84 day (arter 83.5 days to be exact) and it was negative.

IT IS CONCLUSIVE ? Or should I retest? Thank you!

Cut from a Dental Bur

Hi!
I am a dental student. I was treating a patient and cut myself on the bur I had been using to drill my patient's teeth. The bur may have also hit the patient's gingiva, although I genuinely do not recall weather any blood was drawn or not. (Dental burs look a bit like tiny drill bits). The bur attaches to our drill and sits upright in a holder while we are not using it. The bur was sitting in open air and I scraped the side of my finger on it as I was reaching for a different instrument. I did not notice the scrape until I got home later and was washing dishes and felt a sting. I didn't worry about it because the bur had been exposed to air, so I figured this made the virus non-transmittable, but my friends have been telling me otherwise and now I am worried. Even if there was blood on the bur, is there any risk of HIV transmission?

Much thanks

STD after receiving unprotected oral sex - HIV risk?

Hello,

I received unprotected oral sex from a sexworker a few days ago and was a infected with a STD. I went to see an urologist today and was prescribed antibiotics. The urologist said, that the risk to get infected with HIV by receiving oral sex is very low and as stated in many threads in this forum, it may even be a negligible risk activity. However, I am still very concerned if the presence of a STD in the sexworkers mouth or throat increases the risk of a transmission.
The oral sex was performed for about 3-4 minutes and I did not see any blood on my penis afterwards. The only thing that I noticed afterwards was a strong and very bad oral smell which I did not notice before. I assume the sexworker had a bad oral hygiene.

I feel very concerned and guilty because of this situation. It would be great if you could provide me information on how an STD or bad oral hygiene could increase the risk of HIV transmission in receiving oral sex and how you would evaluate this situation based on your experience.

Sorry for my poor English, I am not a native speaker. And thank you for the important information you provide here and your commitment to help people like me!

Best regards,
F

He Didn't Tell ME

Hello,
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?
