Cut on scrotum may have been in contact with vaginal fluids

Hello - I had a fresh cut on the scrotum and received a body to body massage using PH neutral massage gel. The masseuse rubbed her entire naked body up and down my back for 30 minutes and I am worried that vaginal fluid may have mixed in with the massage gel and dripped over the open cut throughout the session. There was no sexual intercourse of any kind. Should I be going to get a PEP regimen?

Possible Exposure Electric Trimmer


I was wondering about my risk of exposure with a razor trimmer. I used an electric trimmer used by a known HIV+ person who is on ART. The trimmer had been left out for many days on the counter in the bathroom. During my exposure event I nicked the shaft of my penis near my public hair. The cut was very small, didn't bleed long and healed within a few days.

I also got an INSTI test back that was non-reactive (after 7-8 weeks). What is my risk level of acquiring HIV?

Massage Parlor - Updated kk

Hello there,
I went for a massage two weeks ago and asked for a happy ending,
she licked my balls and penis for a couple of seconds and also licked and sucked on my boobs (i am male), i also kissed her for not more than 20 seconds but only from the outside (no tongue action was involved). Is there a possibility i get HIV or hepatitis B or C from such activity. just to add, she also sneezed at the beginning of the massage but gave me a handjob 30 minutes later.
Your response would highly be appreciated,
Thank you

Genital-Hand-Genital HIV Transmission

Hi, I had an encounter with a women yesterday and was wondering if there was any risk of HIV transfer (assuming she has HIV). No intercourse occurred but I did use baby oil and touched her vagina for a few minutes, I didn't put my fingers all the way in, just touched the top of the skin on the clitoral hood. I then straight away touched my penis on the top of the foreskin for less than 5 seconds, I may also have touched the head of penis in the process for a split second. Is it possible HIV could have been transferred this way? Also would the use of baby oil have increased my chances of a risk?

Possibly consumed HIV+ blood while actively bleeding in the mouth?

Hi there,

I've read up on a lot of your answers about oral transmission, and needless to say, I'm still anxious. I was snacking on a vegetable when I looked down and noticed that it had blood in it. I also realized that I was bleeding from the gums (actively). I know that HIV dies when exposed to air, but what about if someone injected HIV+ blood into the vegetable? Would consuming it put me at any risk, given that it was in a "sealed" space, and then put into my mouth which was currently bleeding? I also realize that saliva breaks the virus down, however, I didn't have much it the time and was chewing rather "dry." Please help. Feeling really anxious and need to know if I should PEP or not.

HIV transmission through sucking of nipples


Thank you for taking my question. About 5 months back i had a chance to get close to a lady at a massage parlor. I got a hand job done and i sucked her breast nipple for 30-40 secs. I'm worried now, although i didn't taste any blood in my mouth and don't remember having any cuts or sores in my mouth. My question is, while sucking her nipple i think, my teeth could've left a minor scar which could've resulted in minor bleeding from her nipple, what is the risk here in my case? i currently have no symptoms but my mind keeps bothering me. Can you please educate me through your guidance and, is testing necessary?

Risk of contraction?

Hello, I'm a dental student. I was polishing a restoration, and my hands which had gloves graced the bur I have a small red spot on the area. I check my glove it had no holes and I also did not bleed from this area. I felt this area and also it does not have a feeling of any flesh missing it looked more like a pimple if anything. The bur is sort of like a drill head, I've been told a bur same as a razor unlike a needle is not air sealed thus the virus will die within seconds, Moreover the fact that if at all it was a superficial cut it should not be of any concern. I just want some confirmation about this. Thanks.
