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.

Protected Oral sex and Handjob

Hi, I would like to thank you for answering my questions in advance, I'll try to be as specific as possible,
A few days back I went to a massage parlour, it started out by the Lady giving me a shower, during the shower she did touch my penis for a few seconds, after that, during the massage she gave me a Body to Body massage with lubricant on the back, later, she asked me to flip over and she laid on me for a while, during this time there were brief contact between our genitals but no penetration whatsoever, also she tried to kiss me a few times on the lips which I refused but she did at times manage to give me a few pecks of kisses, no tongue just pecks of dry kisses, later on she gave me Oral sex with condom on, it finished with a handjob Without Condom. Also when I got home I realised that on my neck there seems to be a red spot, somewhat like a hickey that might have been caused by her.
Am I in any risk of transmission of STD or HIV in any of the scenario that I described above?? Please help, I'm worried sick! Thank you so much.


A stranger gave me a blowjob. And I have no idea if he has the HIV virus in him,so are they chances for me getting it?



I have three questions. I hope you will answer.

1, Can i get HIV if someone did a blowjob for me? If she had a fresh wound on her hand.

2, Can i get HIV if a woman scratched me under my nails by her nails? My wound was bleeding.

3, If someone touched with his jacket my gyros by accident and then i ate the gyros, can i get the virus? If there were any body fluid on his jacket

Sorry if this were stupid questions. Waiting for your answer.

precum into herpes sore

I am gay and recently had mutual masturbation, frottage and being fingered with another guy in sauna. The next day I realised I had an outbreak of a couple of Herpes ulcers/sores around my anus one which was bleeding.( I was diagnosed with herpes in last few weeks).

His penis was touching my anus and rubbing against it a few times after being fingered by him. My worry is that I might have got some precum into the sore and might be fresh cut and bleeding!!!. We are sweating so it's difficult to know if precum existed.

I am not sure of the other guys hiv status. What are the chances of HIV infection through precum into a herpes sore and cut? Are they really high? We were only touching each other this way for a 15 minutes. I am really worried since I know it's a much higher risk to contract hiv whilst having an herpes outbreak especially since I was bleeding the next day.

I would very much appreciate a second opinion from you too find out the risk factors and the chances I could have contracted HIV. The more I read about it on the internet the more worried I get.
