Hello, whilst replacing bed sheets I cut my thumb slightly due to the sheet catching on a flappy piece of skin and pulling it off. I remember the cut being quite shallow and now that it has healed the scar is quite small. The cut was bleeding quite a lot, however I washed it and carried on but I'm worried that I may have contracted the virus as I touched various dirty sheets and some moist towels, but tried to ensure that my small cut didn't touch the dirty laundry. I don't think I touched any dried blood or another dried bodily fluids but I'm concerned that I may have without realising it. I'm really anxious and worried that I may have contracted the virus as the hotel itself isn't the most reputable. Is there any chance that I may have contracted it?
Thank you, Amrit
Hello, I have a question regarding the possibility of HIV exposure.
Before having intercourse, I got a paper cut as I unwrapped the condom. I did not notice this event, and after intercourse, I touched the condom to remove it and noticed my small cut.
Assuming that tiny cut touched vaginal fluids or remains of menstrual blood, is it technically possible to be at risk of HIV transmission? Should I take PEP just in case?
I masturbated after coming from a very dirty gym with touching other people's sweat and the equipments can I get infected

On April 19th I had unprotected oral sex with a girl; she sucked me and I sucked her as well. Now I am very concerned about the real risk of got HIV. These were the tests I have done so far, and all of them got negative:
April, 22th - ELISA (negative)
May, 05th - CMIA (negative)
May, 11st - PCR (undetectable)
May, 21st - ELISA (negative)
Jun, 09th - ELISA (negative)
Jun, 15th - CMIA (negative)
Jun, 17th - NAT (negative)
Jul, 01st - NAT / Elisa (negative)
Jul, 27th - ELISA (negative)
Please, help me. Are these results conclusive or should I keep testing at least until six months? Thank you!
I got semen on my face and some shot up into my nose. After about 30 seconds to 1minute after, I went to the bathroom to wash it off with hot soapy water, but ended up snorting it in, instead of blowing it out. Is there any risk of contracting HIV in this manner? The guy's HIV status is unknown.
Thanks so much for your help.
Hello, I was riding the bus when suddenly I looked at the back of my shirt and saw that a pimple popped. Is there a risk of the virus getting through my shirt since the blood from my pimple went through my shirt?
A couple of days before i found something reddish deep inside my soap bar and i am worried if its hiv blood contained during packaging! After that I washed my hands with cold water! Though i am aware about hiv mode of transmission, yet i am full of fear. Please clear my doubt, about the risk of this situation, considering it was not exposed to air. its I am stressed.
Hope this finds you well,
We thank you for all your help that you provide here.
I have a lot of eczema on my body and hands, which tend to bleed from time to time depending if i scratch or touch them. I suffer from this skin condition. So I was walking down the street and scratching an eczema on my knuckle and it was bleeding, it was actively bleeding. A homeless guy was walking across us on the street (he is possible to have a drug addiction or hiv) he caught my hand suddenly while i was scratching my knuckles and they were bleeding. im scared he has some hiv blood on his hand and it got into the cut eczema on my knuckle. I don't mean to judge that homeless guy i'm just saying there is a possibility of him having HIV since he looked very sick and looked like he is a drug addict.
please help me with this and tell me what to do, should i go to the emergency and ask for a HIV treatment (PEP).
Thanks a lot for all your help always.
Hi there so here's my story. I was outside with a lot of people camping. They were passing around an afterbite stick for mosquitoes. I needed some and I put it on about 50 of my bites. (I got bit a lot) Am I gonna get hiv from someone's blood maybe getting onto the stick and into my mosquito bites? I don't know if any of them were open, bleeding or not. There was a 5 second delay from me getting the stick from a person and putting it onto my bites. Please help, I'm really anxious about this.
I was at the tailor shop when I got pricked by a needle. These pins are re-used and therefore not thrown away.Am i at risk of getting hiv/aids.
