I had sex with someone on Dec 20 and the condom broke in between. I only realized after finishing. I started PEP in less than 48 hours and took it for 30 days. I tested at 42 days after exposure (11 days after PEP completion) the test was negative. The test I used was HIV CMIA (p24 and Antibody). I took another test (HIV CMIA serum) at 60 days after exposure (29 days after PEP completion) which was also negative
My question is this:
1. Are these test results encouraging?
2. I am planning to take another test at 42 days after PEP completion (74 days after exposure). Have you ever seen post pep test at 28 days turn positive in the future?
I have read on the Internet that HIV 4th gen test are conclusive at 6 weeks by expert. So if my test at 74 days (10 weeks and 4 days after exposure or 42 days after PEP completion) is negative. Can I consider this conclusive?
On 31st Jan I met with a lady and unaware aware of the HIV status of her. That day all that happened as below
1. No penetration or intercourse to her vagina by me.
2. I fingered her vagina and my fingers got wet with her vaginal fluid. And without washing my hand I did musterbate.
3. She licked my penis but it was not a blowjob. Without condom.
4. We both sucked each others nipples.
Is there any chance of me getting HIV if she was infected?
Is there any chance of getting infection if she licks on newly healed wounded portion but without blood?
Is there any chance of getting infection if vaginal fluid comes in contact with newly healed wounded portion but without blood?
Further, on 7th feb,
1. I got my right ear swelling with pain inside the ear. Left ear is normal.
2. None of the lymph nodes are found swelling.
3. Gradually the swelling is gone and now the earlobe got little bit swelling not noticeable easily.
4. On 13th Feb night I feel little swell or numbness in my lower lip.After two days its reducing and only visible if one looks very closely.
5. On 14th Feb I feel little swell or numbness in my upper lip. Its only visible if one looks very closely.
Does these indicate HIV infection?
I have done the HIV Test today i.e. 15th Day (SERUM HIV(I & II)AG/AB( Combo)
Method : Chemiluminescent Immunoassay) and the result is non reactive. I had data of my past HIV test done as a part of my routine test in 2016. It was the same method. At that time the result was 0.09 S/CO. Now it is 0.24 S/CO. It is increasing.
Does it mean that I am infected and antibodies are growing gradually?
Do I need another test for Conclusion or this can be treated as Conclusive Test?
Thank you for all of these useful information in regards of STDs. I have a query that is eating me alive. I am hypochondriac, so you can imagine how stressful it is. I had one night stand with a man with unknown status. We were kissing passionately for about 20-30 seconds, and I noticed that he had bleeding gums. We stopped the kissing and I spit on the tissue to check if I have it as well, luckily I did not have it at that very moment. Right after that I examine my mouth and gums and I noticed that my gums started to bleed as well - not excessive amount, just around one teeth, that I rinsed and bleeding disappeared right away. We did not kiss any more, however I received rim job after that (at the time of rimming, his gums were not bleeding any more). I would really appreciate If you can tell how big this risk of transmission is. Thank you a lot for your time and effort to help us.
I was in a sauna and a man sitting at the other end of the sauna 7 ft away began vigorously masturbating. We are sitting on the same side of the sauna facing the other wall at a distance of 7 ft from one another. I should have left but became aroused. There was no touching but I ended by masturbating myself but without ejaculation as this is my reality at this stage of my life. I dont believe that he ejaculated either as at the distance he was from me I could not see and I left the sauna. It is only after the fact that I became paranoid about that possibility that he could have ejaculated and that his sperm might have fallen on my penis. I did not observe this as happening but your advice and good counsel will apease my mind. Thanks for your quick response.
Sir, I had visited a hooker on 22nd december 2018. I had unprotected handjob from her. She applied lotion and put condom and gave blowjob for sometime. I had sucked her nipples for sometime and twice touched her vagina from outside and didn't finger inside. We didn't take shower before the foreplay but had shower after the foreplay. From next day onwards I persistent felt chills, cold sores, rashes on thighs, cold fever, nausea, frequent urination,headache, fatigue. After 2 weeks I had pain in the lower jaw and mouth ulcers with many tiny sores on inside cheeks (both sides). I'm really scared that I might have contracted STD/STI. Please tell me what are my chances of getting HIV from this act and symptoms.
Hie. I am a 26 year old man. I had a wet dream (nocturnal emission) last night. I woke up at 05:06 am. And I noticed some semen (was still wet) on my bed when I woke up..I touched some of it with my hand and then went to sleep..I was woken up by my little sister. She usually comes in my room and I give her transport money for school. She then brought some change and handed it to me on that hand that had touched my semen..I'm certain her fingers touched that hand..She then got her bag and grabbed some snacks and went to school. I then immediately examined my hand it was completely dry. Is it possible that, if I have HIV, the viral particles from the dried semen could transmit from my hand to her fingers then maybe into her eyes when she rubs her eyes or mouth when she eats the snacks? I'm so worried and so scared I will kill myself if anything bad happens because of me.
I find myself always worrying about having HIV..I had a negligible risk encounter last year in September where I fingered a girlfriend of mine who was on her period. I used a latex glove for the fingering but am scared that maybe something went wrong (e.g. microscopic holes) and the viral particles entered through peeling skin on my finger (no blood, no redness or pain)...I also french kissed a woman who bit me slightly on the lip as we kissed. I learnt from this forum it was no risk assuming there was no blood..She has a very dodgy past and apparently sleeps around. I fingered a 3rd woman in November (with a latex glove again). From all the fingering encounters the body fluids from the woman stayed on the outside of the glove I checked..For the first fingering I washed my hands 25 minutes after I had taken them off when I got home and the 2nd fingering immediately afterwards.
So now I am so scared of infecting my family..I always worry, about sharing water bottles, touching door handles after leaving the toilet in fear that they may be exposed to my body fluids. I am so scared and no longer have peace in my life..Every symptom that comes up I try and correlate it to HIV its driving me crazy. What should I do? I am scared to test because if I'm positive I will face discrimination and I will never be accepted. I live in Zimbabwe and all this is killing me...Please help me
Last week i went to a massage parlour for Body to body massage. The masseuse and i both were naked. She rub her boobs all over my body with massage oil. Later on she ask me to flip over. She then continue to lick and suck both my nipple for about 5 minutes. After that she went on to give a handjob until i finish on her hand.
My question is
1. Assume she is HIV+ and she had cut on her hand and give me a handjob, am i at risk of getting HIV?
2. If she lick and suck my nipple, am i at risk of getting HIV? Not sure whether she is bleeding or have soar in her mouth.
3. I have quite a few pimple (not sure bleeding or not) behind my back, and she rub her boobs on my back. What if she lactate some of breast milk and might have direct contact with my blood?
What is the risk of transmission for the following scenarios:
1.) Get root canal on upper back tooth (next to the wisdom tooth). Dentist comments that the gums have taken a beating and to not eat on that side for a while. When a tissue is pressed against the tooth, a little blood stain is there. Later that evening, kissed someone with unknown status. No deep kissing, but not completely closed mouth either. The regular type kissing where the mouth opens a little bit.
2.) Receive oral sex (male receiving oral from female). Later that night, notice small reddish stain on underwear (which was near the oral sex) about the size of a small paperclip, but can't tell if it's blood or lipstick/makeup.
3.) Receive oral sex. Don't notice blood, but the oral sex is very deep and done passionately.
4.) Have two big canker sores inside mouth under the tongue. Deep kiss with someone with lots of tongue involved. Usually canker sores may be consider negligible risk, but what if they are two bigger ones?
Am I at risk for HIV after mastrubating (fingering) an escort girl? Do I need to be tested?
I am a male and I had a sexual encounter with a female sex worker 14 weeks ago. We showered together and touched each other's genitals. After shower, I fingered her and played with her nipples and sucked on her nipples. Then she sucked on my penis with a condom on and I came inside the condom. I fingered her some more and touched her breast and tongue kissed her. I then masturbated myself without a condom and came again. That was the end of it. During the 12th week after exposure, I caught a flu. I had nasal congestion and sore throat and had chills for one night. I measured my temperature and I was not considered having a fever. The flu cured after a week or so. My questions are: 1) Can I get HIV from fingering her then touching her nipples with my hands and sucking on the nipples afterwards? 2) Can I get HIV from receiving oral sex with a condom on? 3) Can I get HIV from deep tongue kissing? 4) Internet research tells me normally HIV early symptoms show up 2-6 weeks after exposure. In my case, I experienced a flu 12 weeks after exposure. Is it even possible that this flu is related to HIV? 5) Do you think I should get tested?
