I went to the dentist a little over 2 weeks ago, and I was terrified of it. I went there and the dental assistant told me that the tools are obtained from an autoclave bag. He told me that there was supposed to be some blue indicator, but later when I saw the bag, I did not see the indicator and it was not blue.
I have been suffering for more than 2 weeks because I am afraid of being infected with HIV. The day I went to the dentist, I actually ended up going to the ER twice because I was so anxious and scared and I started to panic.
I did not have any procedure done on an actual day, the dentist just checked for cavities (up to that point I was fine). However, then she used a dental probe (a long metal tool with a hook) to check my gums, and see if they needed cleaning. My gums ended up bleeding, and that's when I panicked. Especially since I had seemed the mirror she was using (the little dental mirror) had a reddish tint, and the dentist cleaned it. I thought maybe it was just fog, but now that I think about it, I think maybe it could have been blood.
I also got an HIV test on the same day, and of course, it was negative, which I knew it would be. I know any infection would show 3-4 weeks later, so I am scared again because today and yesterday I woke up with an itchy throat and itchy nose like allergies.
I have been obsessively checking my lymph nodes and fever, and I am just scared. How likely is for someone to be infected with HIV at the dentist, and when it was just a checkup and not an invasive procedure.
The only thing that caused bleeding was the dental probe tool the dentist used to check my gums and see if I needed a cleaning.
P.S. The doctors at the ER told me that I did not need PEP because I did not have an exposure and that it was highly unlikely for someone to be infected at the dentist, but that's what bothers me, they told me it is highly unlikely. It should be not likely at all. They told me I have anxiety issues, which is true, is not the first time I have been scared. I had a tonsillectomy last year and I was also scared to death. I was not able to relax until I had a test.
URGENT!! HIV transmission risk???
a clinical pathologist who was working on some lab blood tests, was wearing gloves and she signed a paper with a pen, and I -with my uncovered hand & small wound on my middle finger- signed with the same pen... I don't know if there was blood on her gloves or if any of the blood samples she was working had HIV... What to do and what is the risk????!!!
I am 35 male, i am non-American, incase of mistake in communication apologies.
I am having a hpv genital ward on shaft portion. I recently went to strip club and took a vip. I was wearing only a cotton workout dress, no underwear. The lady was naked and rubbing butt and front of her continues 15 min. I had pre cum, not sure if she passed fluid on me.
My doubts are, if she have hiv or any other std, can it pass through my pants to wart and virus infect me? It was paining when she rubbed as she was very much close to my parts.Not only wart am i at a risk of getting virus infected like this?
Hi am a 28 year old male from india...Recently i visited a sex worker and Got my body massaged by a sex worker who might be hiv positive...I touched her nipple,breast and held her fingers ...Immediately i noticed she had a small cut on her finger and breast and she was slightly bleeding as my palm and fingers became slightly wet.When asked she told a previous customer had bitten her in those places during foreplay..Am worried have i contracted hiv as i touched her bleeding nipple and finger...Would be waiting for the reply at the earliest...
I'm a very anxious person, I haven't had any contact with other people except shaking hands since 2016, afraid of get aids. 2 negative test In 2 years, however, yesterday I tried to fix this situation, and do some kissing (lips, barely touching tongues), and mutual masturbation (he didn't eyaculated, maybe just pre). He touched both penises. I had an infection in the throat (under medication), today I had some phlegm with little blood. I need a test?
Hi, i went to a massage parlor and got a b2b massage, i was wearing a disposable underwear and she was completely naked.
At first a precum came out of me from being aroused and i could feel it cause it went through the disposable underwear and then She started rubbing her vagina on my penis ( i still had my disposable underwear on ) and the rubbing went on for about 30 seconds when i asked her to move away and masturbated until i came.
I then checked her vagina and didn't notice any vagina fluids coming from her but i am not sure if during the rubbing she did discharge any although when i touched the underwear after i asked her to move aside i felt no wetness on them.
Also please not that she was kissing me on my lips only no deep kissing and she tried to slide her tongue inside my mouth but i didn't interact with her and moved her away but her tongue did touch my lips.
Please note that 2 weeks ago i also had a massage with the same woman but that time she was wearing her underwear and i was naked and i noticed that she had the menstrual pad under her underwear not sure if she had her periods or not and i was rubbing my naked penis on her underwear and then she asked me to but my penis between her thighs and ejaculate which i did and i came between her thighs. In both incidents there has been no penetration or hand job or oral sex what so ever.
My question are:
1. In both incidents am i at risk of getting infected with hiv through these actions?
2. If the woman was hiv+ and her vagina fluids somehow came in contact with my disposable underwear does it pose a risk of hiv transmission? (Please note that the disposable underwear is not a thick fabric, and i have read on this site that if vaginal fluids come in contact with the penis opening it might be a risk of hiv transmission so i am worried that if any fluids from her vagina was present on the underwear it might have gone through the underwear and into my penis hole).
3. Is it true that once the virus is outside the host ( the woman vagina ) it dies cause it got in contact with the air?
4. And what about the kissing part where she tried to force her tongue in my mouth and i felt her tongue touching my teeth, does this oppose any risk?
I request you to please answer my query with as much detail as possible, please i have a wife and a kids and i am very worried. I promised my self never again to get into such an encounter where i put my self and family at risk.
Appreciating your kind help and apologize for some of the wards used but i wanted to be as specific as possible.
Thanking you in advance.
I went to goodwill and touched couple item there. it is like shop place. I touch my mouth without washing my hand while having sore throat. I swallow some saliva down my throat. I am not sure if there is any blood on my hand. maybe it is my own imagination cuz if there is on my hand I would notice it . Am I at risk of getting infected with hiv ?
I touched a girl's breast and nipple(less than 15 seconds) in a bar in Thailand and she gave me a peck kiss(dry kiss) on my lips(no exchange of saliva). Can I get HIV from this? I am really worried...
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
