After that, i took the test 3 times at 19th day, 27th day and 79th day after the risk with HIV Ag/Ab Combo test. The results are all negative. So can i conclude that i'm safe and move on ? Thank you

Can HIV be infected through hand-job?

Hello, I'm extremely worried because of what I did in the last 2 weeks. I had sex with a prostitute (first time and only), after I get on the bed, I put my penis inside of her for about 2 minutes (with condom), then I started to feel bad and I don't have the feeling that I want to do it anymore, so the girl offered me if she can do me a hand job. I'm ok with that, she took my condom off and do it. The thing I'm thinking of now is the condom I wore was stick her vaginal fluids, and when she took it off, her fluids probably stick to her hand too, after that she just hold my penis. So my question is:
1) Would I be infected with HIV through the way she did (if the girl is carrying HIV)?
2) I did put my finger inside her vagina too, can I got HIV infected also?

Dont know what to do/ HIV transmitted

Hi there,

Last week I met a woman who is a sex worker. We then went to her place, I had told her that I do not want to have sex. We then proceeded where she took of my pants and started giving me a handjob, I kissed her for all of ten seconds(open mouth)and fingered her for about the same amount of time. She then finished me off with the handjob. I dont know her at all nor her status.

I am really worried? Is there any reason for me to be? Should I have a test done?


Healthcare provider exposure

Recently care was provided to an AIDS+ patient with copious clear secretions being emitted from his tracheostomy stoma. The skin surrounding the stoma was reddened and macerated due to the copious secretions, however no visible blood was noted in the secretions. The provider caring for the patient had a small paper cut/ hangnail Which may have been exposed to the secretions aforementioned. Is this cause for concern for possible hiv transmission?

Ton of Anxiety, Do I Have HIV?

I absolutely worried and scared that I might have HIV, and am afraid that my life is going to end because of it, or the quality of life will be extremely poor.

I've been with my significant other for a while and she's had some partners, and though she says she is clean, she has not been tested. She has had bloodwork done though, so not sure if they check for HIV or lack of immunity.

Can you get HIV from:
1. Mutual masturbation (handjob, fingering, etc)
2. Mammary intercourse (titfucking) - yes, there was contact with semen
3. Deep kissing / french kissing (no blood that I know of)
4. Hickeys / breaking some skin but not enough to bleed profusely
5. Contact with breasts orally (may have been contact with breastmilk)
6. Dry humping

Are there any other STDs I should worry about that could be caused by any of the above? I believe it's possible for skin to skin contact to cause some STDs but I don't know if I should be worried based on the stuff above.

This is my first partner that I've done stuff this extensive with and I'm absolutely terrified of getting a STD of any kind, ESPECIALLY HIV/AIDS as that seems to be the most deadly and not curable.

I don't know if I'm just letting my anxiety getting the best of me or I'm worrying for the right reasons. Please help.

Please Help struggling with life

Hi Guys thanks for the great Job you are doing I been reading quiet a lot of the feedback but even though there are some questions related to me and I read all of them I still feel stress and I cant stop thinking about it . Basically about 2 and half month ago I received oral sex from female unknown HIV status I have no idea if she had bleeding gum, sore , mouth ulcer or STI but i am quiet worried i might have contracted something but my biggest fear is HIV as i had mouth ulcer 6 days after the exposure occurred lots of symptoms that is related to HIV but i am not going to mention all of them and i know you guys don't go by symptoms. I really cant stop thinking about it i feel like my life is ruined and i cant stop thinking about it not for 1 min i know it is negligible risk but i feel like i might become the first person or some how i am really unlucky and get it this way. I want to get tested but i am really scared i just dont want to know that i have been diagnosed with the disease. Also i fingered her for quiet a bit and we kissed deep mouth for a while i am really really scared i have got something from her because i feel like there was something in her mouth maybe bleeding gum or something as she was chewing through out the whole time . I stop enjoying everything i use to love and do everyday my grades and college suffered massively i cant concentrate or focus in class i am soo depress and anxiety has made my symptoms worse. Please replay it would be great to hear from you guys


Please read below. The person that asked the question excluded needles and syringes as objects and simply asked that any object with the exception of syringes would be no risk yet in the answer it says NEGLIGIBLE vs NO risk............why is this inconsistent with most if not all other answers that says HIV is not transferable by an object and requires human to human contact? This negligible risk contradicts previous answers??????

So is touching blood on an object that was there just a second or two earlier and then into a cut a risk or not as the person asked below? Is Any object that is NOT a syringe, NO risk or negligible risk if seconds hold fluid on object goes into open active cut?

Original question/answer below

HIV Transmission
Negligible risk
HIV is never transmitted from objects (except needle and syringe) or surfaces, because any fluids on it will be exposed to air, thus virus is not transmissible any more? Is it right?
Even if i have bleeding cut on my skin and that cut contacts with such objects or surfaces, i am still safe?
Short query: Any object (not needle and syringe) and surface are always safe from HIV?

Hi there and thank you for contacting the AIDS Vancouver Online Helpline.

There is no risk of HIV from touching objects that may have come into contact with bodily fluids while having small cuts. This is because HIV in bodily fluids (such as blood or semen) becomes non-transmissible when it is exposed to the air. Any bodily fluids on objects would have been exposed to the air and would not contain transmissible HIV. The only exception to this would be if an object had areas within it that could trap a bodily fluid and was then used internally. This is possible with needles (blood remains in the barrel of the needle and then goes into the bloodstream of the person who uses the needle next without being exposed to the air). There has also been speculation that there could be a risk of this nature from sharing sex toys if there is some form of hole in them that could trap bodily fluids, but there has not been a reported case of transmission of this nature in British Columbia.
