HIV Touching someone’s hand

While at work I touched the hand of an individual that appeared to have an actively bleeding cut or tear on his cuticle. I have a bunch of small tears and cuts on my hands and around my cuticles. Is there any risk for an HIV infection if I
1) touched his cut with my cuts
2) got some of the blood on my hands and I didn’t notice than itched my eye
3) came into contact with blood that he may have transferred to a pen or piece of paper.

Thank you

Are activities in which both people bleed on each other considered "No Risk" for the transmission of HIV?

My friend, who was a HIV care provider, claims explicitly that "no one has ever transmitted HIV through wound to wound contact" and that therefore there is no significant risk to hockey players transmitting HIV in a fight like this, presuming one of them carried the disease.
Is it true that wound to wound contact, poses no significant risk?

unprotected fellatio

Dear Doctor, I'm a male from Romania and I'm 52 years old.
About one month ago I had got a fellatio from a prostitute.
I had some inflamation on my penis and the oral was about 30 seconds.
She had some signs on her back.
After 11 days I had a sore throat which it hasn't even passed now.
What should I do? I think a have HIV.
Please answer me.

40 Day Test Considered Conclusive?

Good day. I had my blood tested on a Laboratory on the 40th day since exposure. These were the activities that had happened.

1. Tongue Kissing
2. He rimmed me.
3. He blowjobbed me.
4. He fingered me.
5. Rubbing tip of his penis on my anus (not sure if there was a pre cum or not)

Should i still get tested on my 3rd month?

Thank you.

Unprotected Oral Sex and kissing with Canker Sores

Does receiving unprotected Oral sex (blow job) from a woman of unknown HIV status warrant for a HIV test. I know it is a low risk scenario but should I go for HIV testing to relieve myself of anxiety. I also deep kissed here and realized that I had a small canker sore inside my lower lip, if she had any blood in her mouth, will it increase my risk of contracting the virus. There was no vaginal and anal intercourse, we just performed the above mentioned acts. This was my first sexual experience in life, can it be a reason I am so anxious. The girl has been messaging me to have sex but I have been avoiding her just because she had multiple partners and I don't know how to ask her about her HIV status. One of the reason of avoiding her is my anxiety of STDs as well. I feel so guilty of my already unprotected exposure that I don't even want to have protected sex.

fall off the bicycle

Can there be an HIV and Gonorrhea transmission at the same time through saliva?

Hello and good day!

I had an unprotected insertive oral sex with a man whom I didn't know the HIV status. After 2 days, I noticed a discharge being secreted by my penis. I immediately went to my doctor and he said that I probably got this through unprotected insertive oral sex. At the moment, I am not in my medication for my discharge. He also recommended to have my HIV test after 6 weeks. Here are my questions and hoping that you'll consider anwering them.

1. Is it possible to acquire HIV through saliva and insertive oral sex?

2. Can the gonorrhea bacteria and HIV virus combine at the same time that I may possibly also be infected by both?

Thank you very much for considering my inquiry. I am looking forward to hearing from you.

Gavin: HIV risk unprotected oral sex with sexual worker

Hi, I had unprotected oral sex with a sexual worker 3 and a half weeks ago. I had a small sore on my penis during that time which is recovering. the whole process is like 1 minute and I did not ejaculate in her mouth. She is sucking and spiting the fluid in a bin. Before the oral I washed my penis and she washed her mouth with listerine mouth wash. I had a sore throat 2 weeks after that and it last only for a few days. Now I have this feeling of a lump under my jaw which is roughly 1-2 cm i think. It is not painful but I am worrying that I might contract HIV from the unprotected oral through my penis sore. I am feeling very anxious now and I don't know what can I do. Can you please give me some advice on my risk of contracting HIV through the sore and the timing that I have to do a screening test? Thank you.
