I had the 4th generation test exactly 9 days post exposure. I had the test after symptoms started. Fatigue, other flu symptoms, 99.6 fever. I’ve read that the antigens part of the test is effective at 10-14 days post exposure. My test was negative, but I don’t know if it means anything. Will the 4th generation test detect antigens at 9 days if there are symptoms? I went to my regular doctor and had blood drawn for the RNA/viral load test yesterday, but it will probably be next Friday when I get the results. I’m still having the symptoms. This is the 7th day. My exposure was unprotected oral and protected anal (both receiving). Thank you for answering my questions.
Bye. I have a problem and I hope you can answer my question. I was with a man who is HIV positive. I went to him. He had a wound to his leg, but I can't remember exactly if it was a scab, but I don't believe it was an open wound. I touched his wound accidentally with my hand several times, until I noticed the wound. I didn't have any open wounds on my arm, and I don't think he was either, but I'm still not sure about him. I had a few calluses on my arm. He then gave me an oral - Blowjob, which lasted about 20 seconds, and I told him to stop, I didn't finish. That was all. Am I at risk of getting HIV?
I recently had a brief encounter with a male. there was no anal sex and no penetration. i did, however give him oral sex both on his penis and briefly his buttocks area. there was no ejaculation on his part. what is my risk for contracting HIV and should i think about taking PEP? This encounter literally just happened. The other person was HIV negative and also taking PREP. Thank you for your honest answer here.
I had anal oral sex about 3 weeks ago. After I finished I washed my mouth out with peroxide like I normally do. This time I accidentally bite my tongue causing it to bleed after I washed my mouth out. I'm worried because i'm not sure all the germs escaped my mouth. This was like 15 minutes after oral sex. I'm not sure how long anal mucus remained in my mouth or if the peroxide washed it away. I would hate to hear that someone's anal mucus was able to get in the sore from the tongue bite. Not sure how all that works. Since then I've been having post nasal drip mild flu symptoms like sore throat.
Hi, i've been searching all over your forum, but i got mixed answers so i'll ask it directly. Is it performing fellatio (giving head) with a condom to a man, low risk or negligible?
i went to erotic massage many times with different women.
Every time, the masseuse and I did the same thing :
First the handjob, and after that she put the condom on my penis and then we had protected oral sex + protected vaginal sex with the same condom. At the end, i always put some water in the condom to see if it broke.
I remember that I verified every time except for one time long ago i do not remember if i verified the condom.
I don't think the condom broke or something i did not feel anything strange.
I'm very hypochondriac i need to know if i have to get tested for HIV???
Thank you for your time
i would like to know if i have any risk for HIV.
A women did a handjob with her saliva she spat two times and then she made me a blowjob with a condom.
I ejaculate in the condom.
Do i have any risk of HIV in this situation?
I don't remember if there was blood in her saliva. I'm not sure.
Thank you so much.
Hi good morning,
I would greatly appreciate your support on the below. I am a really anxious person and my conscience plays a really big part in my daily life. So, since the below situation occurred, I have been in complete sadness not only for the risks that I experienced, but for what I did to my wife, son and family… My feelings of regret are unbelievable.
I had an encounter with a transsexual woman last sunday. At the beginning we did not do much, but then she touched my unerect penis with my underwear on for about 10 seconds, then I touched and kissed her breast for about 10 seconds or so, then I touched her bare skin penis with my hand for about 10 more seconds – she was not fully erect btw. Then she put a condom on her penis and I decided to do protected oral (making sure the condom was properly wore in first place), but after 10 seconds or so, I stopped because I did not like it (it felt awkward and not right) on top of the nasty latex flavor. Then she masturbated my penis for about 10 seconds, but I decided I wanted to do it on my own so I “finished” in my hand. I asked her about her HIV status and she told me she was clean (although she was upset with my question). As far as I have seen, these activities (breast kissing without any fluids, brief mutual masturbation and protected oral sex) offered little to no risk of infection, but I need to have peace of mind…
I took a really close look at her, at her hands her breasts, penis and I did not notice any kind of signs of infection. Also she reassured that she was not sick…
Later that day I took a plane and started feeling a sore throat and little bit of cough, so I started having fears of what i did (not sure if the onset hiv window could be so fast!). Also I noticed that I had a really small canker sore in my front lower gum (not bleeding btw)…
Support group, please let me know what should I do? Should I just learn from this sad episode and move on with my life? Or should I get tested? If I should get tested, is there any quick test that can be trustworthy at this stage or should I wait for 90 day window?
Please help me, Im desperate!
I'm currently dating this guy. I'm feeling really paranoid right now because we've been having sexual contact recently. The furthest we have gone is oral sex (giving and receiving unprotected) and him rubbing his penis (covered with a condom), and almost inserting it inside me. Yesterday, I was concerned because when I performed oral on him, there was precum but he didn't ejaculate. I only performed oral for a little bit. Afterwards, I became worried because I had sort of an open sore on the inside of my lip. It wasn't like a bleeding sore. I have a habit of biting my lip and peeling the old skin off so it sort of leaves a sore, but it doesn't bleed or anything. I heard that oral sex is a lower risk of getting HIV, but a huge risk is posed when the person performing oral has open sores or bleeding gums in their mouths. The guy I'm dating, before we ever became sexual with each other, I asked if he's clean and been tested for STD's. He replied that with him being in the military, they often test soldiers for stuff like HIV. So, he said he was clean. Now, I'm not familiar with the military and how often they get tested, but I still can't help but feel concerned because of my paranoia and worry about getting STD's. So, it's hard for me to take his word for it. Anyway, from what I have explained so far, could I be at risk for HIV? Should I get tested?
Dear Mr, Ms,
One week ago, I had some sexual activities with a sex worker in Germany. We didn't had sex. She gave me a protected oral sex with a condom and I rubbed her vagina with my hand. While rubbing, the gel dried out and her vagina too, so I licked my hand one time with my tongue to make the rubbing easier. I have no idea if my hand catched vaginal fluid but I still remember that it was dry. My question:
is there a risk of HIV transmission in this case?
I checked my mouth and I had no bleeding gums or sores, but I checked my tongue and and the very end of it there are Candida albicans (white things) which I don't know if they are normal or not or they give a route for the virus.
Thanks for your efforts!
