Negligible risk

Protected anal sex, unprotected oral sex, HIV ag/ab combo 29th day negative

Hi Helpline,
I will be very happy from getting your answer.
I am 27 yrs old gay male from Vietnam. 5 years ago til the present, I had a lot of mutual unprotected oral sex with my partners, and also protected anal sex for only 2 times. The condoms are used correctly. After the last exposure, I got a HIV ag/ab combo test in the 29th day, the result is negative. The doctor of this testing centre recommended me to retest in the next 2 months.
Another concern, I am very scared the risk of catching HIV from the razor blade at the barber. If there were any blood of HIV positive person from the previous client, but the hairdresser didn't change the blade, and then he used that razor blade cut into my back of neck.
So, my questions are:
1. What are the risks of my sexual activities? And the test result is accurate?
2. What is the "real risk" from razor, even with the presence of blood on the blade?
I am in a huge confusion. I hope I would get your precious answer. Forgive my bad english.

Blowjob with cut

Hello! Recently a girl made a blowjob for me, like for 4-5 minutes. Later I found that there was a small cut near the tip of my penis, which was made by her teeth. After some time I found out, that she is HIV+.
I've read that recieving oral sex is negligible risk, but does it increase because she of a fresh cut on my penis? The cut wasnt bleeding, but the skin was damaged a bit. What are my risks?

Hiv transmission through frottage

I had a brief genital rubbing with a lady of unknown hiv status and her vagina was very wet. My penis head came into contact with her vaginal fluids and after a few seconds of rubbing i cum. Can that transmit hiv if the fluids came in contact with my urethra? And also when cuming could hiv virus have crawed to my urethra because i had a jont pain and nauses a week after the activity?

BJ From a masseusse

2 days ago, I started to get a BJ from a massuesse but stopped her after few seconds. Is there enough reason for me to be concerned about HIV. I'm feeling fine and there were no wounds, no exchange of fluids, no trace of blood, etc.

Sex and Oral Sex With Multiple Escorts

Hi, within the past year or two I've been to 5 different escorts mostly due to my state of concience, I was taking oxycodone and it made me do things I normally wouldn't. Now that I'm off it I keep rethinking each encounter I had with the escorts. Each encounter I used a condom, the first three times I received oral for a minute and left. The two last times I received oral and had sex using a condom for both activities, once again the duration of the activities were very short and the condom didn't break. One of the encounters when I finished I took the condom off, forgot to wash my hands due to my anxiety, but they were dry no fluids on them, 30-60 seconds later I wiped my hands on my pants than itched my eye, I'm not sure if this is a risk or not. Also one time i did not wash my hands after taking the condom off and smoked a cigarette once again no fluids on my hands. Sorry if these questions are stupid, I just really regret what I did, it's just not for me, and I don't know if I should get tested or not.

My possible risks were:
Receiving oral with condom three times.

Having sex two times with condom on, I checked the condoms they were not broken nor had any holes, also it was a short duration of time and made sure there were no skin to skin contact.

Not washing hands after removing condom. (I'm not sure if that's a risk)

Thank you in advance for taking the time out of your day to answer these questions. Sorry if they're a bit ridiculous the scenarios are just eating at me, I have anxiety issues. Also I forgot to mention one woman jumped on top of me and wanted me to kiss her body so I kissed her mostly all over except below the belly button. I kissed her beasts momentarily, but did not try and suck on them. While she was on top of me we were both naked but our genitals did not make contact. Since these encounters I haven't been sick once, I heard there is a 90 percent chance of getting sick 2 weeks later is this true?

Handjob question roberto 1913

Hi and thank you in advance if you choose to answer this question
My question is regarding handjobs . I've seen a lot of posts similar but sometimes not fully explained and I want to be more educated on the matter of how HIV is transmitted and I would like to know why a handjob is still no ris/negliglible risk when it is given with vaginal fluids as lube? Isn't there HIV on the vsginal fluids? Also what if there was blood on the hand from like a paper cut or something . How come this still don't pose a risk? Can't the virus go through mucus membranes ? I'm not really sure where the mucus membrane are located on penis but would it remain no risk/ negliglible even if you are uncircumcised ? I'm asking because I received a hanjob from someone who I don't of unknown HIV status . I do not remember clearly if she used vaginal fluids as lube which I doubt but still . Also I don't know if she has any blood on her hand which I also doubt but you can never be so sure ? What would me my risks. So I really require testing or can I rest assured I didn't really have a risk ?
Thank you very much I really appreciate it

hiv1/2 ag/ab test at 12 days.

Hi there. I'm a 34 year old male. I recived oral from a SEX WORKER.
I had caught clymida. I tested for everything at 12 days. Only clymidia came up. What I hope is if the syphilis test and hiv1/2 ag/ab tests I can consider conclusive. I'm scared as heck and want to move forward with my life.
Some doctors say yes it's good. Some say no come back. I guess that's the OFFICIAL answer is to come back?

Is there any risk of HIV transmittion rubbing my penis with another guy's dick?


I have a question about HIV risk. Last week I was with a guy (I'm a boy too) and we just kiss and touch. When we were kissing, we took off our clothes and we rubbed our dicks for a while (no more than 2-3 minutes). After that, we masturbated each other and cum. I didn't touch his cum. When we finished and started to clean up, I noticed a very little redness in my foreskin maybe because of the rubbing. Now I'm worry about a possible way of HIV transmission. We are friends, but I don't know his hiv status, but he seems to be pretty responsable about that stuff.

test results assessment with hiv symptoms

Hi everyone. I would just like to get your opinion regarding my risk/possible exposures and the results of my previous tests.

June 7 (possible exposure # 1) - unprotected anal and oral sex with a guy met from an online application with ejaculation on mouth only

June 9 - sore throat, diarrhea, low grade fever, diarrhea, night sweats, muscle pains (arms, legs, back) all for 6 days.

July 30 (7.5 weeks past exposure # 1) - tested negative at a local clinic using HIV antibody rapid test

August 14 (possible exposure # 2) - gave unprotected oral sex with ejaculation, upper gums got swollen in the afternoon

August 24 (11 weeks past exposure # 1) - tested negative using an approved Philippine home HIV test kit (finger prick blood)

August 30 (2 weeks past exposure # 2) - high fever for 2 days, nausea, headache, diarrhea for 1 week

I was so paranoid and related these symptoms to my oral sexual encounter last August 14. My gums got swollen that day and I thought that I could have an open sore that time which led to the possible infection. What makes me more bothered is that I got the fever around 2 weeks after, when ARS typically appears

September 12 (4 weeks past exposure # 2) - Due to paranoia and since I haven't purchased a new HIV kit yet, i re-tested using the kit I used last August 24, since there was still a reagent/HIV buffer left. Before re-using, I was so sure that there was no indication of any line in the T area. After putting blood and the buffer, there was a faint line that showed in the T line!

September 27 (6 weeks past exposure # 2) - tested negative using a new HIV kit.

Now, my questions:

1. I know it was a dumb idea to re-use the kit, but why is there a faint line that appeared? Is it because I re-used the kit? I was thinking there could be something that really reacted from my blood, because if there is nothing, then it should have stayed the same, with nothing appearing on the T-line.

2. Is the September 27 test more reliable? I know that 3-month test is conclusive, but could this be a false negative, given that a faint line appeared on my September 12 test? Did I just use the kit wrongly this time, that's why there is no faint line that appeared?

3. If my September 27 test was indeed accurate, am I cleared of my June 7 exposure?

4. Given my oral exposure last August 14, should I re-test at the three month mark?

What are your thoughts?
