No Risk

Need help and advice with possible exposure.

I had an exposure with a sex worker, I use a Condom for BJ and Vagina Intercourse. in 5 mins later i took the condom out ( no breakage ) then i put it back a min later. Is this consider wrong use of condom and carry a high risk exposure?

I know i am at a risk. So on 87 days, i went to get my blood for HIV and STDs tested in a clinic. The next day, 88 days i went to another clinic to get my RAPID Oral finger prick tested. It is Negative and doc says i am clear. 
A week later i got back my LAB report from the clinic, Doc went through all the report HIV - Non- Reactive. ALL stds clear but HSV 1- positive. 
1. Do i still need anymore testing for HIV? 
2. Will 88 days negative tests turn Positive? 
3. Am i clear of HIV virus and can move on my life? 
I will never in my life engaged in such a risk since i am a married man and i want to have a family with my wife. 
Need an answer to ease my thought. 
Thanks

 

Concern about indirect contact - Please respond

About 6 weeks ago, I was invloved in an motorcyle pass-by accident which resulted in an abrasion wound on the front of my leg just below the knee, the wound was about 2mm deep (max) and about 3 cm in length. It completely healed by itself in about 2 weeks. 
The lady at a flower shop (which I had just left after ordering a boquet of flower) provided some first aid medication for my wound (this was a few minutes after the incident therefore it was still a fresh wound). There was no direct contact between her and my wound, therefore this eliminates any direct blood to blood contact. However there was indirect contact as she did give me a cotton wool soaked with betadine solution, which I applied to my wound. 
I am grateful for the lady's help but I can't stop being paranoid and pessimistic about the possibility of transmission (eg. if she had blood on her hands or if there were cuts on her fingers). I think I did not visually see any blood on her hand (which if bleeding actively, would surely have transferred onto the boquet of flower she had just arranged for me). How much blood would have had to be present to make transmission possible (bearing in mind that the cotton wool was applied with a betadine solution before being apply to my wound). I have also read online that betadine solution will immediately inactive the virus but could there have been any possibility of transmission? 
I would like to thank you in advance for your respond
 

 

HIV risk from nipple bitting?

Hello,
I have been freaking out really bad for the past week because I am really scared of exposed to HIV. Last week I met a girl who let me suck her boobs, however I didn't suck or licked them I gently grind my teeth on them for a second or two no more than 2 seconds. I wasn't aware of any fluids (blood or breast milk). What are my chances of getting HIV? And if there was a drop or 2 of blood or breast milk what are my chances then of getting HIV? Pls help I am really really freaking out and haven't been able to sleep. I have learned a lesson that not be easy going without thinking :/. Please help -thank you

blood and Toilet

Hi, 

1. I went to public restroom and noted there was blood (which was wet) on the toilet seat and i cleaned with tissue paper and throwed the issue paper into the toilet and immediately water/blood splashed into my mouth. 
What if the blood was HIV infected and immediately reflected to my mouth when i throwed tissue paper, do I get HIV from this situation?
2. After that I used the same toilet and once my job is done, I cleaned my hands with facial soap as I did not find anything and then immediately cleaned my mouth with my hands (with the same hand i cleaned the blood on the toilet seat with tissue paper) and my mouth had little cut on the lips. Do i get HIV based on this situation?
Please answer my 2 queries as I am on fear and Do I need to get HIV test done for this situation?

 

Spit out drink

Today I was eating dinner with my friend in the cafeteria.she laughed at a joke and spit all of her drink on me. It got all over my arms and I believe in my face. I'm worried because I don't know her status and I have open acne and possibly scars on my arm. What if there was blood in her mouth? Am I at risk? I'm not engaged in sexual activity nor a drug user.
 

Knife injury - is it a risk?

Hi,
 
While helping my friend pack his stuff and move out of his apartment I accidentally pricked myself on the abdomen with a knife being used by the movers. I notice some weird residue on the knife (may or may not be blood). 
 
My questions are as follows:
1. How deep would the cut have to be to enter the bloodstream? (Mine was very superficial but a couple of drops of blood were spilt)
2. In case the residue was blood, how soon after exposure to air would the blood no longer be a risk for transmission?
3. Am I at any risk and if so what kind of test can I get done? (Incident took place 3 days ago)
 
Thank you.

From the situation I have described, I know it is virtually impossible for me to receive the virus, but I would like an second opinion to ease my mind. I would like to thank you in advance for your respond.

Cut from Shared Knife

I live in shared room. I cut myself with a knife on my thumb and a very small amount of blood come out which stopped automatically. My roommate said in morning, he also cut himself with the same knife. I cut myself after appxx 10 hours after the incidence of my room mate. Knife was placed open on kitchen slab. Can I be infected assuming my room mate is positive. Should I get tested?

apple picking

I have sort of a weird question but I am really upset over this. I recently went apple picking and my hands were very dry as I forgot to put hand lotion on them and so I had some cracks on my hands that had been bleeding a bit but had stopped but the cracks were still there around near my knuckled.My issue is I was picking apples and after I was done there was a reddish/brown sediment and it looked like my hands had blood all over them that started to dry and cake on my hands. I am concerned that someone bled all over the apples I picked and the blood was on my hands and could have possible got in my open cuts because I did notice that they reddish/brown sediment was also near my knuckles. I know this seems like a weird question but I am afraid that I somehow could have got Hiv this way? Is this even possible? I was unable to wash my hands until i got home but I used a wet wipe which probably pushed the stuff into my cuts even more. I am struggling with fears of getting Hiv and seeing this stuff that resembled the look of blood on my hands freaks me out. I am walking around thinking it was Hiv contaminated blood. Please help me with this. Should I be concerned? If this was blood can you catch Hiv this way can it get on your hands from touching stuff and then get in my open/recently bleeding cracks on my knuckles or be pushed in the open/recently bleed cuts from wiping with a wet wipe?Do you think this sediment on my hands was blood?I am scared. Please let me know. Thanks,
