Do l need an HIV test in this case ?
Hello, I was in a public washroom, I pushed the bottom of the soap dispenser to get some soap, and I had a small and 2 days old cut on my finger. If my cut touched the dispenser and if there was vaginal fluid on that, does HIV f transmit this way? My cut was not bleeding but it was red and a little bit wet, and just to make sure I washed it with soap and water immediately after I assumed it had touched the dispenser. Please assess the risk in this situation. Thanks for your time.
Im worried that i might infected through receiving oral sex (my penis get sucked), I had 5 encounters with insertive oral sex. 3 times in massage parlor and 2 with a street worker, happened on separate occasions. Is there a possibility of HIV transmission in this mode?
And also i had protected insertive vaginal sex, i inserted my penis to her vagina for about less than 5 seconds i think.. Supposing the condom had some small holes, will vaginal fluid enter to my urethra and cause HIV transmission?? I'm so worried this time. Should i need to be tested for HIV?
Hi, I went to a guys place whom i found through online website. He came out of his apt building to take me to hishis apt.The guy parties hard... We did not have any sex but he got naked and was using lube on his penis. I did not get naked but was only masturbating. I only briefly touched his thigh and knees but not genitals. He did not touch me. As i was leaving his home, i touched the knob of the door that was sticky and wet. The guy immediately took a rag to turn the knob and opened the door. I did see some open condomn on his table in his house. I am scared to death thinking if the door knob had some infected fluid and that can transmit HIV to me. The fluid could be his or someone else who might have come before me. The fluid might be there only five minutes before i touched it..meaning could be fresh.I do not have visible cuts in hand. He used rag to open the door and when i asked, he mentioned he had lube on his hand and knob and hence used the rag to open the door. I mean really scared given that knob was wet and sticky and i touched it with my bare hands. Further, i am scared if i got pricked by any needles at his place. Please help me as i am married and have a kid. Thanks
i took today a HIV test and now i become worried about the needle, if the nurse(man) has HIV and he prick his finger with the same needle and right away he collect my blood with the same needle can i be infected??
Hi, over the past year I have been obsessing about getting HIV from low to non risk events. I have been testing consistently for over a year, sometimes weekly. All my tests have been negative. I keep promising myself not to put myself in any situation that could pose even a theoretical risk. yet, each time I come close to the three month test, I screw up again. My only risks in the past 6 months have been mutual masturbation. I use this tem loosely as I haven't really allowed anyone to touch me. Occasionally I would touch them briefly, trying to be careful to make sure no fluids got on me. While I haven't noticed any, I am still concerned that I may have gotten precum on my hand and then transferred that to my penis when I masturbated myself. I cannot seem to accept that this is not a risk. It would seem that if precum could have touched the tip of my penis within less than a minute that it could pose a risk of infecting me. Again, I never noticed or felt precum so any amount (if any) would be minimal. Please help me. The fear of this and the prospect of the never ending testing cycle is ruining my life. If this was my only potential risk, can I finally stop testing and move on with my life. Why can HIV infect someone if fluid gets on the tip of their penis since both are a source/entry point for of infection. Maybe knowing the science would help me accept that I was not at risk. Thank you!!!
Dear Sir/Madam, Let me clear my situation. I m male, 31yrs old and married before 8 months. I have promised to myself for not indulging into any sexual behavior in future.I had also tested myself for hiv before my marriage and got a negetive result. After my marriage , the following incidents happened im my life-----1) After marriage, due to continuous intercourse, I temporarily felt erectile disfunction. I went to consult an Ayurvedic doctor. He had given me 6 medicines and an IV injection. Though in his prescription he mentioned only about the medicines, not about the injection. He mixed two separate injections and later when I charged him, he mentioned the name as ELDERVIT. I did not also see him to tear the disposable syringe packet, he had taken the ready vacant syringe from other room. He also charged a good amount of money for the medicines. For this incident, as I have the HIV phobia, I started to think if the syringe had hiv, if I got infected etc?2) In the train, one day I unzipped one person and started to shake his penis over his underwear by holding the shaft only for few minutes. I didnt feel any wetness (though may be a very little precum inside) over underwear. Later within next 15 min I wiped my hand a little in my corded pant and went to an urinal. Then during putting my penis inside the underwear, I accidentally touched may be the foreskin of my uncicumsized penis for 1sec. Am I at risk?3) Again In the train, another day, while doing the same activity by touching shaft only over underwear. I again wiped my hand in his trouser. Again I didnt feel any wetness over underwear though there may be little precupm inside the underwear. After 8-10 min I accidentally touched an old scratch(caused for rubbing the skin, not a cut) of 44hrs old with no bleeding or shippage at chick for 1 sec. Am I at risk?4) In my workplace, I fingured one of my colleague for 4-5 min. He is not at all sexually active. Some precum touched in my fingure. After I hugged her, kissed her in this process the precum might get wiped off. We left each other and eventually I joined work and forgot to wash my fingure/ hand. I never unzipped and opened my penis. Later, unknowingly If I touched thereafter my nose or eyes or mouth or lips, am I at risk?5) My cousin is almost of my age, we slept for two days in outings. I shaked his penis for jerking off and during that I kissed the shaft and tip of the penis though in this process very little apparently dry precum touched my inner and outer part of lips only( with no cut or sores). No cum or sem touched anything. I brushed my teeth around 20 min prior to that. I have healthy gums. I there after washed my mouth fully. On the other day, I touched his very little precum during jerking his penis with fingures and after drying I touched his belly and thereafter kissed at his belly. Belly was dry . I had a little pimple below my lips. After that I went to the wash room, after washing, I used a rough towel to wipe water and thereafter I found my little pimple broken. No blood though only a little shippage. My cousin was not sexually active too. Am I at risk if it was broken during kissing?I have also consulted psychologist and presently under medication for anxiety disorder. I am little bi sexual. Though not got to get involved in such activity in future. Should I need testing or I can go for family planning? Please help. Sorry for this long mail..
I went to see the dentist the other day and things went as normal. I am a person who gets nervous and anxious easily. I started to pay attention to a lot of details, such as new equipment, new gloves and etc. as the dentist started to check my mouth, he used one small tube-like equipment ( forgive me I do not know the exact name) that shoots air to dry the gum/tooth area the dentist would examine. The head of the tube did not touch the gum and tooth. However. In order to see the inner tooth, the dentist used the tube ( not the head of tube) against my mouth for a few second. This was done before the dentist used other dental equipments to treat my tooth.
I was not sure if the tube was replaced. I stared to become nervous. I am afraid if the tube was not new. My question is if the tube was not new, would I have any risk?
A little background. I know the virus can not survive in the air for a few minutes. I was waiting for around 5 mins before the dentist came to me. Second, the check took place before the treatment. The head of the tube pumps air without touching teeth/ gum. The only concern was the tube touched my outer mouth (the end of the lips) when the dentist tried to dry the inner/last tooth (in less than 3 seconds). I know the dentist change the new glove, all other dental equipment.
Hi, I was wondering why mutual masturbation is considered not risk even if someone touches my penis with the same hand that has their fluids on it; Can it enter the tip of my penis? Have there been studies between magnetic couples proving this doesn't occur? Is HIV unable to infect immediately after it is exposed to the environment? I was involved in some mutual masturbation and I may have gotten some of the persons fluids on my penis. I am worried about needing to test. Thanks
I recieved a letter in the mail from a friend known to be HIV positive. We lost contact over a year ago while she was deep into drugs and I made the decision to end contact with her because she was not in a good place and I did not want her around my children until she got help and clean.Anyway... I saw some orange/red stuff on your envelope and card. I have a very long paper cut on my hand that I got a few hours before I opened the letter. It never bled, so I'm thinking its just the top layer of skin, but I'm very concerned. Could HIV live on the card (since it was in an envelope and sealed off from environment)? I have a 3 year old, a 1 year old, and one on the way and this incident is making me very concerned.I appreciate your time and expertise!
