Negligible risk

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?

terminal cancer and hiv window period

sir/ madam
i) i read that terminal cancer can extend hiv window period but other cancers don't extend hiv window period , if so i can we know we have terminal cancer and what is difference between terminal cancer and other cancers?
2) i read from dr.hunter handsfield blog that even overwhelming systemic infections can extend hiv window period , if so how will we know if we have systemic infection?

i had an oral sex with girl and i did elisa test in 3 months , which came back negative but above questions worries me to much pls help god bless u

conflicting responses regarding oral risk

In a Sept. 21 post "Worried of Oral" one of your volunteers indicated that oral sex is low risk and that there have been some cases of HIV being transferred this way under special conditions. This contradicts what everyone else seems to say which is negligible risk and no confirmed cases. Could you please clarify which is correct? This is a seemingly contradictory position taken on your site. Thank you.

'this is seemingly contradictory information between low risk and essentially negligible or no risk.

Cum on Anus With Genital Warts/Herpes No Penetration


I had a sexual encounter with someone who was HIV positive. There was no penetration but he was grinding my anus and ejaculated. I have genital warts and herpes around the anus so very worried this could put me at great risk. Very anxious at the moment and would love to know if this was high risk

Thanks in advance for your advice

Oral sex transmission

I received oral sex from a sex street worker after I climaxed I pull out my penis there was blood on it from her. I didn't have any cuts or sore on my penis. Could I have contracted HIV ?

Anal sex with HIV positive partner


I got a HIV test result Negative in July 2015 and the test’s name is HIV Combi PT. The test was conducted at:
– 17th week after unprotected anal sex
– 16th week after protected anal sex
– 10th week after unprotected oral sex
– 29th day after my partner fingered my anus

Should I get tested again? I had an unprotected oral sex a few days ago which makes me worried now.

All the exposures occurred with my partner - a HIV positive person.

Many thanks!

Oral sex and HIV

Good morning four months ago I did a prostitute ora by condom in Finishing took off his condom and finished in the mouth during my ending touch with the language of the underside of the penis and bit her lip . You may stick hiv in this way?

Very worried after what I believe is a risk 09/22/15

Hi and thank ver answering this question.
I recently was with a csw. I received oral sex with protection but I am not worried about that. The sex worker also grinded on me unprotected. I was nude and she had on underwear/lingerie. The reason I am worried is that I'm not sure if I penetrated her while she grinded on me. I highly doubt I did and this is coming up from my anxiety and imagination. I even went as far as into texting her and asking her if I did and she assured me I didn't and she would never let anything slip in without a condom. But what if vaginal fluids were on her underwear? Would that pose a risk? I don't think I penetrated as I think I would have noticed plus she had underwear which would make it harder to penetrate . I'm scared Please help
Thank you
