About the REUSING CONDOM post, i didn't reuse it literally, after i penetrating anally an HIV person, i grabbed the condom alongside my penis and masturbate, i didn't think there was a risk, later i realize the condom had rectal fluids. and my penis was cover all over it, that was my concern, if that contact was dangerous or not?
Im really grateful for your time and caring to all of us. Thank you.

My penis became in full contact during masturbation with the external side of an anally used condom of an HIV+ person, After the anal coitus, the condom was exposed briefly to the air (less than 10 seconds), before i started to masturbate with it, i kept masturbating and came with the condom around my penis (uncircumsided), without thinking in the risk. can you tell me how real of a risk it was?
Thank you for your inquiry. From what we gather from the question, you were asking about the risk of contracting HIV from a used condom, assuming the condom was used by someone who is HIV positive. Condoms are not intended for reuse, and will not be as effective in preventing HIV transmission when used incorrectly. 
Recommendation: Refer to your physician for follow-up

Thank you very much for reading my question,
I am currently living with serving in military and I am writing this from South Korea, I came here because I visited your website for several times
and I believe your helpline is the most reliable sources I have ever seen. ( I am sorry for the bad English)
My question is
If a couple drops of blood (one or two drops ) ( HIV positive blood) was dropped to my hand and if I did not notice them
and "after 1 or 2 minutes", I rubbed my eyes "with the hand with HIV positive blood on it" and "directly went to sleep."
In this cases, is there any chances of getting HIV?
I did check several statistic before I came here, it was saying the possibility of getting HIV from blood entering eyes is around 0.1%
but in my cases,
"I directly went to sleep ( closed my eyes for a long time, so I guess there is no air exposure during the sleeping time) "
and it was nighttime, there was no light sources including the light bulb because the switch was turned off (No UV light to destroy HIV viruses )
and the window was closed so I am afraid if there is not enough oxygen to destroy the virus
I am really worried because I rubbed my eyes and directly went to sleep, and I am worried if I did not notice the blood on the hand.
I understand the scenario is nearly impossible, but I am worried because I have never read a case or a statistic regarding rubbing eyes with HIV infected blood and directly went to sleep.
I know threre must be no blood at the time, but I am still thinking about the possibility of getting it from this situation, so I really do need your help
Thank you so much for reading such a long question and I wish you to have a great day, thank you.

I am male and my nipples were bitten & sucked by a female sex worker and got injured, there was no significant bleeding or deep cut, only very small (1*2 mm) and superficial injury to the surface of the skin in the nipple. I can feel pain & burn if I apply alcohol on the wound. There was no any other sex like vaginal anal or oral sex with the sex worker, absolutely no.
I worry about the possible transmission of HIV or STI, my family doctor recommended that I should take PEP to ensure the safety. But I just doubt if I need PEP in such a situation?
It has been 36 hours past since this accident, I need to make decision as earlier as possible if I decide to take PEP.
Please help to advise!

Hello thank you for your attention, my doubt is; I had oral sex protected with a prostitute, in addition to introducing fingers in her vagina feeling vaginal fluids for 2-3 minutes, I do not know if I had cuts in the fingers for stepfathers or not, in addition to dry kisses, I was tested for HIV immunofluorescence after 7 days, non-reactive result, I was summoned for 4th generation test 10 days later, I have to do more tests to be negative and my risk is very high to the HIV acquired by the same. soy de México.

Couple of days before i went to a massage parlor. while giving massage, the girl put my dick in her mouth and sucked it. the processed lasted for not more than a minute.i didn't ejaculate in her mouth.After clean up,i asked her if she had any oral injury or so. The girl has had a tooth implanted 2 months before. does that pose me at any kind risk for contracting HIV. Little worried about it. I am just assuming that she might have bled while giving me Oral. Request a prompt reply. Thanks.
