Hi, I have a risk assessment question.
Today I had my routine STI testing and took the bandage off and the blood draw puncture wound was dry. I got on the bus and absentmindedly wrapped my arm around the vertical rail for support. I probably didn’t touch the blood draw site to the rail, but I could have. Then I realized the site was close to the rail and had a minor anxious panic and stopped at shoppers drug mart for hand sanitizer and scrubbed it, then it bled just a bit from the sanitizer scrub. The bus rail didn’t appear to have had any obvious blood on it after I took my arm off it. When I was touching the rail the venipuncture site was dry and not bleeding.
What, if any, is the risk of transmission of hiv/hcv?
I know this seems like a trivial question, but I experience a lot of anxiety and am looking for some support.
(I had send yesterday the same question, but no answer get)
I have been in a hotel in. Since I have booked two escort ladies, who offered me on the bed a Lesboshow. I just watched, i touched none of the ladies and none of the ladies touched me. The two ladies haven driven it wild with hands and dildo's.
In between, they once went to the bathroom or the balcony to smoke a cigarette. I did the same. Then I masturbated myself with my hand on the penis, of course without a condom. As far as everything is safe ...
... the longer I think about it, the more doubts come to me. What if the ladies had placed vaginal secretions or blood over their hands from their vaginas on door handles, appliances, etc. while they were on the toilet or balcony?
And i would then have grasped with my hands in this vaginal secretion or blood and then massaged by masturbating in my penile acorn???
Could this scenario a HIV risk for me, if one of the ladies was HIV positive?
Thanks for your reply, please
**** Dear all,
Could you please clear up the following. If a person who takes care of a baby (9 months) and has HIV (maybe event acute phase), can he transmit HIV to a baby through a casual contact?
I have seen many answers and cases, but anyway it seems unclear. Of course, I don't mean cases with big sores/a lot of blood. But I mean cases when, for example, a child scratch you with nails (small scratch and there can be some blood on it) and then gets his fingers to mouth/eyes (always doing it, especially to the mouth because of toothing).
Many thanks in advance!
We were having lunch with a friend of mine. I don't know about his HIV situation and just know that he has many sexual partners. He used his spoon to put food in my spoon, and I ate the foot almost immediately. I don't know whether his spoon contained considerable amount of blood, however, I had an extraction a month before this situation, and although the sore of extraction had been healed, I am not sure whether there was considerable amount of blood in my mouth. In worst possible situation, how much is the chance that I can be contracted HIV if my friend is HIV-positive?
How do some people get HIV infected from the dentist? I have read on this site that HIV is unable to infect once outside the body?
how can we get hiv by deep french kissing please give me full detail
Please Help!! I had some deep french kissing with a unknown HIV status girl, but very active sexually, we kissed for 5 minutes, I did not taste blood or saw any major injury in her mouth, but as a lot of saliva was involved and I dont know if the girl had any injury like bleeding gums or other injuries that could bleed and be mixed with saliva while we kissed, in my case I had bleeding gums problem, I always had some blood when I spit after toothbrushing my teeth, no major injuries that could require stiches or medical help, Ive been very anxious so I really appreciatte your response,
Thanks in advance!!
Hello. I am stressed about a situation that happened in canteen today and need your support (thanks a lot!!) just typical canteen, in which you grab your cutlery and tray etc yourself. In the middle of waiting in the row I noticed the worker right in front of me in the row has a very bad and fresh abrasion (whole forearm), not dripping blood, but very very fresh. from time to time he touched it just to check it or something, while touching the things I did touch immediately like the piles of cutlery and trays and napkins... I noticed too late when already having my lunch... Please is there any risk, if I touched some piece of blood he may left on these things if I immediately touched my cutlery and food? I also touch my eyes and nose often due to itching allergy and I don't know if I had or did not have any of his blood on my fingers... :( and now I am quite stressed when thinking back about it. Thanks a lot!!!
The blood stain was red-orengeish and small. I put my right arm on it. It was on a tissue covering the right arm of the chair. I told the nurse to draw the blood from my other arm, the left one. Afterwards I washed my right arm with a lot of soap.
But now I am worrying that the nurse could have touched that stain with the needle or with her hands. I didn't see her touch it but I keep obsessing over this.
What do you think?
I don’t know how to explain it, but the stain didn’t leave any mark of blood if you touched it. The tissue had completely soaked that tiny amount of blood. There was no trace of blood on my arm when I washed it.
Do I need to get tested? I don't engage in any risky behaviour, so, except for this episode, I am not at risk. if I wanted to be tested, how long should I wait? The blood drawing happened today.
In the hypothetical case that the nurse had touched the stain with the needle, would I be at risk?
Last evening, i accidentally bit the inside of my cheek while eating at dinner. The wound was big and much blodd came out; i washed with water, but i continued to feel the taste of my blood inside my mouth for about 1 hour. Then, 2 hours after this accident, i was at a party, an unknown girl offered me to try some of her ice cream that she was eating. She passed me her ice-cream scoop and i ate a small quantity of her ice-cream using her ice-cream scoop.
Now i am a bit concerned because it is very likely that my wound was still bleeding when i shared ice cream and ice cream scoop with that unknown girl, and i would like to know from experts if this event was at risk for any infectious disease.
Thank you very much!
