No Risk


Hi. I've been going through hell recently, torturing myself. The situation happened at work. There was semen in soy milk I took from the fridge. I suspect one of the cleaners did it. I am terrified. I drank the milk with my coffee. The soy milk is a closed, sealed container that kept in the fridge might keep the virus alive, right? Also, I'm taking PPIs (I suffer from acid reflux) , so do not have stomach acid in my stomach. Please tell me if the situation posed me at any risk?

cum in contact with skin

so about a month ago i hooked up with another guy. we mainly just kissed, and his penis was in my mouth but there was no cum that i recall that i had in my mouth. when he cummed it got on the skin on my leg, but i saw no cuts on any kind on it. my question is this a risk at all with cum on the skin with cuts?

Scared for my baby

Hi there,

Thank you so much for this service. I have a relative that is HIV positive and I was recently with him. As he was saying goodbye, he touched my babies hand for a brief few seconds. Afterwards, I realized that my baby had a hangnail. I didn't see any bodily fluids on his hands but if by any chance my relative had a bodily fluid on his hands and then touched my baby is there a any chance that my baby could become infected? I am worried sick! My baby also recently had an ear infection, now every little thing I am worried is HIV. Thank you so much in advance for any possible insight.

hiv from blood in sink

sorry to post this twice but i was washing my hands in the sink at college. after i was done, i realized their was blood in the sink. (some idiot decided to blow his nose in the sink beforehand)

(the blood was located parallel to the spout in the front.

I don't think i touched the blood but the water might have splashed onto my hands which has small open cuts (some of them bleeding) (i have a TERRIBLE habit of biting my cuticles)

Should I get PEP?



Can you get hiv from sharing sunglasses with some one

I fear for my little sister

Dear Helpline Team

Hie..Thank you so much for all the great work you're doing, you are helping out so many people. Yesterday at around 1630 pm I bought some chips (french fries). Now in my country, Zimbabwe, french fries they are sometimes bagged into a transparent plastic bag. So I ate the chips, putting my hand into the plastic bag and digging for some more chips then removing my fingers and eating them. Now I got a small hangnail wound which had stung that morning and bled very minimally. I then ate some on the way home. I got home 15 minutes later and didnt finish all the chips and when I got home, I gave my little sister to finish up eating. I only started getting worried after I noticed that my hangnail wound was stinging (the skin was peeling and there was no active bleeding but a tiny red dot like a tiny sore inside the hangnail wound about 1mm)..So my sister ate the chips. I am now worried about the friction between my hangnail wound and the inside of the plastic bag..what about if a tiny amount of my blood went on the inside of my plastic bag..Could that blood somehow find its way onto my sister's fingers or the chips as she drew some of them out and ate them.

I've been so worried about having HIV I've never had sex before only fingered 2 girls with latex gloves on and got bit on the lip by a girl whilst kissing her

1. I am now worried that if a microscopic amount of blood went on the inside of the plastic bag of the chips and then when my sister was using her fingers to dig in for more chips, if it contacted her fingers and/or the chips and then she put those fingers and chiptrs in her mouth could she be infected?

2. What about if she licked her fingers or the ketchup inside the plastic bag?

2. This incident happened around 8pm yesterday. Should I take her to see the doctor and ask for PEP?

I am so scared of something bad happening to her I don't know what I would do if I infected her I wouldn't be able to live with myself. Please help me.

NB* I remember putting ketchup (tomato sauce on the chips before I ate them) so much of the inside of the plastic bag was covered in ketchup. Could the little HIV viral particles survive in the inside of the plastic bag and on the ketchup and be transferred to my sister's fingers then possibly the mucous membranes of her mouth when she ate the chips or licked her fingers?

Yours Faithfully,
Mr Worried

Can I get HIV from masturbating with fruits?

I am so sorry to ask such a vague question but still, I need to get this out of my chest!

I got a cucumber, put condom on it and masturbated with it ( i.e, put it in my arse ). After a few minutes, I noticed that the condom tore apart. A removed it immediately and threw them away. I am too afraid to have real sex, that is why I used a cucumber.

I started to think about HIV only after 2-3 days when some of my muscles started to ache and given the hypochondriac that I am, I started relating these aches to seroconversion. Is there something to worry about?

Am I correct in assessing that I CANNOT get HIV from a cucumber even if I use it without a condom?

Thank You for taking the time to curb my irrational fears

Please, someone help! HIV transmission through hugging?

Thank you so much for your time.
I am panicking, two weeks ago I hugged someone that was HIV positive. I am now experiencing a runny nose and sore throat and I am very scared, especially because I have a baby. If someone could please respond I would appreciate it so much. Is there a chance I have contracted the virus?

Casual Contact with Toilets

today I used a toilet to have a number two but before that I lock the door. And with the same hand I grabbed toilet paper to wipe my bum am I at risk of hiv or other infectious diseases
