No Risk

Tw2

Hi,

When you state that HIV cannot survive very long outside, what if that HIV fluid was put into the toilet water just seconds before I used the toilet and thus splashed up into anus. Still no risk even if just seconds?

Question:
Hi

I hate using public washrooms to take a poop but I had too in this case. As I let loose water from the toilet splashed into my anus hole. What if the person before me masturbated or bled into toilet and now mixed with water the blood or semen entered my anus. Am I at risk for HIV and why or why not?

Answer:
Greetings,

First and foremost, although we try not to deal in hypothetical's, even if an HIV positive body fluid was present in the toilet water, the virus would have been killed off once it was exposed to oxygen and toilet water. HIV cannot survive outside the human body for very much time at all, even in the best of circumstances.

Fortunately, HIV does not transmit easily, and we cannot get it from any scenario's in a public toilet that don't directly involved sexual contact with someone else.

Toilet water

Hi

I hate using public washrooms to take a poop but I had too in this case. As I let loose water from the toilet splashed into my anus hole. What if the person before me masturbated or bled into toilet and now mixed with water the blood or semen entered my anus. Am I at risk for HIV and why or why not?

Definitely

So Jonathan says that if you tested negative at 90 and 151 days, you definitely donot have hiv.
If that is true, then all of us who are suffering from symptoms but testing negative can rest easy no matter what right?

Washing up

Hello,

This may seem like a silly question but I'll ask anyway.

Recently I had a low risk exposure with a needle stick on the street. Anyway I tested negative at 5-6 weeks via a duo test and I'm awaiting to have my 12 week test. I know my test right now is roughly 95% accurate and a good indicator that I'm negative but I'm still being cautious.

I was recently washing the dishes when I cut myself during. So I cleaned myself up, put in a latex washing glove and drained the water, filled the sink up again and rewashed all the dishes.

Would there have been any risk to my family through the dishes if I was actually infected with HIV? I ask as I washed up my baby sons bottles.

I did wash everything a second time with soapy hot water.

GYM Exposure

Hello, not sure if this is a stupid question but here it goes............I worked out today, and was getting on the bench press. After sitting on the bench, I felt wet in the anus area, and thus, obviously something was on the bench..............I know sweat does not cause HIV, but what if it was one of the HIV fluids,(blood, sperm etc) that does, and I sat on it, and it went into my anus hole, right after someone left it there, like seconds............can I get HIV this way or would somebody actually have to penetrate as anus hole then displace fluid inside? Is this a possible way to get HIV? I skipped my workout and drove home to shower, as I was worried what if, what if..............

Please let me know why and in detail if possible so I know? Thanks so much

Severe Anxiety (please reply asap)

Hi, I am so sorry to ask again…

I posted this question 3 days ago :

http://helpline.aidsvancouver.org/question/cuddling-and-rubbinghelpocd

I was told it was no risk whatsoever, the incident happened on monday evening and since wednesday (yesterday) I have a really bad sore throat, which gets worse every day.
Can I have these so called "hiv symptoms", 2-3 days after it happened if there was no risk?
Is it really a zero risk? please be honest , I am the most concerned because we were rubbing our bodies together and we both had pre-cum, however we were fully dressed and I never touched his penis per se, just his pants…what if during the rubbing, his precum soaked through his pants and came into mine / my penis?

I can t handle re-testing, I tested neg- in october. I am usually super carefull and feel really guilty about this encounter… the guy seemed like he was lying.

and now I have these symptoms… I want to move on and enjoy my christmas break….

Hiv in semen outside the body

Hi, how long will hiv survive in semen outside the body? I'm concerned because I was involved in mutual masturbation with a man. We only masturbated our own penis at first. The problem is after he finished I was having problems finishing so he grabbed my penis and masturbated me with the same hand he had masturbated with without cleaning himself first. This was about 5 minutes after he had ejaculated. I know he had semen on his hand and he masturbated my penis head. This is a person I know well. The problem is this. 4 months later, just yesterday, he told me he tested positive for hiv. He was crying and told me I should get myself tested. I tested 7 months ago and this has been my only exposure. I'm in a dark world right now. My hands are shaking as I'm typing this. I'm going to get tested tomorrow. I thought by not having sex I would be safe but I'm not sure at all. All I keep thinking is that my life as I know it is over. Please tell me, does hiv survive in semen after 4-5 minutes even if the semen is wet? He tells me not to worry that he doesn't think I'm in danger. He had unprotected anal, that's how he got it . I'm so scared, please help. I'm dreading and all I see is a doctor telling me I'm positive.
