I'm a community worker and I'm afraid that I might have been exposed to blood from a homeless patient yesterday. The person was leaving the hospital when I witnessed him falling into the street. I assisted the man in getting to his feet so he would not be hit by a car. I noticed that his elbow was bleeding so I handed him some band-aids from my purse. About one hour later I noticed some drops of blood on my dress while back at my desk. I have eczema on my hands, so I became concerned about exposure. I reported the incident to employee health services and went to the ER. My blood was tested to establish a baseline health status and the results were negative for HIV and hep B and C. The ER doctor did not recommend PEP treatment and stated that my risk was low for HIV, about 1 in 100,000. I'm still worried. Especially since I don't know if the blood got on my hands and I have eczema. I used hand sanitizer directly after helping the man, but I did not wash my hands until about an hour later. Also, I did not get the name of the man, so I don't know his health status. Am I at risk?
I was operated on 14-June-2016 for gall stone disease. Before operation one person came to trim hairs from my stomach and genital parts. He was using a hair trimmer. Accidentally he made a minor cut on my lower abdomen (there was no bleeding initially). After a few minutes I went to bath room and wash that cut with water and squeezed the cut to get blood out of it and again wash the wound. After two or three days the wound/cut healed.
Now after one month I developed some pich type random rashes on some parts like forearms lower legs and thigh. I am also feeling pinch like pain in my groin area with mild fever. I tested for HIV 1 and HIV 2 antibodies two days ago and the result was negative.
Please throw some light can I get HIV infection through above described process.
Recently I was needing to shave my beard and I pulled a razor out from my drawer in my bathroom. During shaving, I accidentally nicked myself a few times, and I didn't think about it much at first. However, I had my brother over a few days ago and I found out he may have used one of the razors from the same drawer to shave. I don't personally know his HIV status, but say if he were to have HIV, used this blade, accidentally cut himself, stupidly put the blade back, and I had used it and nicked myself, what would be the chance of me contracting HIV (or any STDs in general, for that matter)? I know I sound paranoid, but I'm losing sleep over it and would like to know what my risk is. If I'm not at risk, then what makes this a different and lower risk than "sharing needles"? Any help is appreciated. Thank you.
Hello, I'll try to make long story short as much as possible.
On April 18th I've had unprotected oral sex exposure with unknown guy. The exposure was including both fellatio and cunnilingus and while performing fellatio he never ejaculated in my mouth. The whole process lasted for less than 20 minutes and It wasn't any of my concern until six weeks post this exposure. I started getting very sore throat with enlarged lymph nodes in my neck and armpits followed by muscle and joints pain. I also had white patches on the back of my throat that are still present today (12 weeks post exposure). I checked up with my family doctor who prescribed me penicillin for throat but It never helped and my throat is still present. Exactly six weeks post exposure I went to take tests for STD's including HIV and all results came back negative. The nurse told me because of my risk I shouldn't be concerned anymore about HIV infection and she even told me It's not necessary to get retested again but If I want just to give myself peace in mind I can get another test 12 weeks after possible exposure. I tried to listen to her advice and move on with my life but I started getting even more symptoms such as very itchy skin rash on my arms and chest as well as genital yeast infection. Dry cough was also present for a short time but now it seems to be returning. All these symptoms don't seem to go away and they are occurring over and over again so I decided to went for the second test after 12 weeks and currently I'm waiting for results.
I'm very scared and don't know what to think because I'm driving myself crazing by googling symptoms and although the nurse is convincing me my risk is almost negligible and even if there was risk Hiv test done at 6 weeks would in 95% of the cases picked up infecton by then. I'm going trough a lot and I'm not sure how will I handle this please give me your opinion of what are my chances of being contracted with HIV.
Hello I am a transgender who has not been sexually active. Well I met someone one craigslist late at night and acted a little dumb. Now I am just wanting reassurance if I should be worried or not. I don't know the man just met him once he was nice. We met in my car and talked for awhile and I ended up giving him a hand job, while I was doing that to him he played with my anus a little fingered it some but really didn't really stick it in very much if he did he stuck it in pretty shallow but played with it enough to that it hurt for a few days. Before he was able to cum I got scared and stopped but I did have a lot of precum on my hands. He was cool with me stopping and he left and that was all. I also do test my sugar with my hands but that was more than 12 hours before. Should I be worried about any std especially HIV giving him that hand jog or him fingering my anus a little? We did not kiss on the mouths at all or do anything else. No sex was involved in anyway just a handjob and my anus being fingered a little. Please help this transgender calm down.
I'm looking for some advice about an encounter I had with another male. It's the only sexual experience I've had with another male. The other guy claims he has only ever had oral with another male and advised me he was free from any form of std. Apart from what they said I don't know their sexual health history.
During our meet the other guy had his foreskin over the head of my penis, I played with his penis until he ejaculated while his foreskin was still over my penis, so the head of my penis (possibly inside it too) was covered in the guys ejaculate. I removed my penis for a minute then we 'docked' again until I ejaculated.
I have to admit I enjoyed the experience but do wish it was with someone I knew rather than a random guy I know nothing about.
Would it be possible to find out what the possibilities of hiv transmission if the other male was infected? Or other std's that may have been present?

So a month and a half ago I had sex with a girl a barely know. We had vaginal intercourse and I used a condom all the time. I performed oral sex and she rubbed her genitals with mine (no condom in this case) so after that I got really scared and took a 4th generation ELISA (Ac. Anti VIH1 y 2/ Ag P24) at day 39 (0.18) NO REACTIVE and at day 50 (0.10) NO REACTIVE. So I want to know if theres a risk of contracting HIV through genital rubbing. I know there´s a chance of infection through oral sex but is close to zero, right? And I want to know how reliable are those tests. I want to take another test the 79th day, I know is the 84th day to be conclusive but I´m going to work on the countryside and I really can't take the test after the 79th day. Am really losing my mind over this. Does it chance a lot if the test is taken at 79 day and not at 84? Please, help me. I also read that the CDC says that after 6 weeks is conclusive right? And there´s no need for more testing.
I was playing with a women, I touched and fingered her vagina. I did not have any wounds on my hands. after a couple of minutes i touched my penis.
does that put me at risk if the woman was HIV positive?
Approximately 3 days ago I had sex with a CSW. During this encounter, I performed oral sex on her but for a very short amount of time (kissing, not really licking), and I am not sure if I had any sores in my mouth, but when I took time to notice that evening and the following morning, I didn't see or feel anything unusual. She also performed oral sex on me, but I was wearing a condom and ejaculated in the condom in her mouth. This was the extent of our activity.
Six months prior to this, I had a different encounter with a CSW (also the first time I really thought about the possibility of contracting HIV) where we did oral/protected vaginal sex, and I made sure to get tested regularly afterwards. My last HIV test, taken sometime before the encounter 3 days ago, was negative. During those six months, the thought of having possibly contracted HIV really wore me down mentally, and it is an awful feeling to know I have to go through another six months of hell in order to clear the HIV-possibility for this last encounter.
I just have a few questions that I am hoping can set my mind at ease. 1) What is my risk of having received HIV? 2) Do you recommend that I get tested given my experience? 3) If I were to take a 4th Gen Antibody/Antigen test (available at a clinic nearby) when would I need to get tested to get a conclusive result, or are there any tests that provide conclusive results before the standard six months (all the tests I have taken were 3rd gens)?
Please help. I'm very anxious and worn out from the fear and just can't think that this nightmare has begun again.
