No Risk

Xmas stupidity


I stupidly went to a csw and I got a handjob without a condom then had protected intercourse with a condom. There was no breakage of the condom.

Was I at risk for HIV?

Do I need to test specifically for this case or is my 6 monthly routine test okay?

Hand Sanitizer


If I put hand sanitizer on my hand when there might have been a tiny bit of fluid on it, will it kill the HIV? Does Hand sanitizer kill HIV?

Dirty, bloody water


Recently i got splashed with water while my office janitor was cleaning a ledge which I was standing under.

My worry is that this was extremely dirty water as the ledge had tons of old bird poop on it which the janitor was trying wash away with the water. I also noticed that the janitor's hand was cut and he was bleeding in to the water while holding the hose.

The water fell in to my mouth as well as in to my eyes.

Please let me know if I am at any sort of risk from this situation. I am really worried because of the bird poop as well as the blood from the janitor's hand. Maybe I need to get checked for bird flu as well.

Plz help me out.

response to public bathroom question I asked

I need clarification to your answer from my post I wrote. You said:

Please "keep in mind" that you are responsible for your own education in regards to your health. Please also keep in mind that "what if" and your herpes outbreak are not questions we can answer as we are not you and continue working with your doctor.

what does that mean? are you saying you dont know if you can get hiv if i did infact wipe with that same towel I used to close and lock the stall door if I did in fact have a hrepes breakout down in the vagina? I thought you said you cant catch hiv that way and yes i understand im responsible for my own health education but this is a forum that answers questions like this does that mean you are telling me answers that you are not 100% accurate on and that you say im repsponsible so then why would I ask a question if you are not telling me true info? I need clarification please. also you say keep working with my doctor? I dont have a doctor and why do I need to keep working with one? I never told you I had a doctor so are you thinking i am someone Im not

So very scared

My employee health nurse is making me test again for HIV at 6 months. I have to test again because there have been cases where nurses seroconverted after 6 months? Is that possible to happen to me? I had a needle stick and patient was HIV negative and hepatitis c positive. I tested negative for both at 6 and 12 weeks. However, my baby that I'm breastfeeding has had recurrent colds and ear infections and I read that indicates HIV in children. I really thought I made the right decision to breastfeed because of patient being negative and I tested negative at 6 and 12 weeks. But now I am afraid I have made my baby sick and have caused her harm. I just hope and pray I am truly HIV negative. I know I should be happy that the patient tested negative for HIV, but the window period applies to the patient as well, and the patient could have been in the window period. That's why I am so confused because I thought that you can get HIV from someone even if they test negative
because they could be in the window period. I don't know what to think. Am I ok?

Terrible fear

I fear that I am one of those people who are what is known as seronegative. Now I am the only one who thinks that as I have had numerous rapid antibodies tests at a clinic well after the so called window period of three months..in fact well over a year.
Nothing else explains all the symptoms and all my dr wants to do now is send to another psychiatrist. He says I have have every test they have and that hiv tests are accurate at four weeks.
He will not test me any more nor give me more referrals. If I were him, I would feel the same way. He is my second dr and really does not even want to see me anymore.
I am really not well and fear I have transmitted the virus .
I do not even know what to ask as there are no more places for me to turn. A Naturopath says that therei serially something wrong with me despite all the negative hiv and every other test.



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?


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?


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

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


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.
