I am a 20 something male. About 5 weeks ago I had unprotected oral sex with an HIV+ woman - it lasted less than a minute and then we had penetrative intercourse with a condom on. An hour before having sex with her I shaved my genitals and had some minor shaving cuts and abrasions on the base of the penis that stopped bleeding within minutes and I put deodorant and aftershave on them to sterilize them. The condom covered them when I had it on during sex, but I'm worried that her saliva came into contact during oral sex with where the cuts were. Am I at risk? I took a 4th gen combo blood test and it came out negative at 3 weeks and I have another one at 6 weeks scheduled but going out of my mind with worry...my doctor says I was very low risk and 6 weeks should be conclusive but I can't shake off the anxiety...

Hi there, I had an oral with a girl. I had canker sore on my tongue during the oral sex (3 months from now). I was careful a bit, i just lick the girls vagina and did not swallow the saliva or her cum. After that, I had dihoria for 3 days and then stopped.
But, I am continiously having stomach guggling and diahorreah, not really watery but when i go to the toilet, its gas and bubbles. I am also having mild head ache. I asked the girl and she said her health status is ok. She said she was check and she is ok.
I am confused, is this HIV or some other diseases? Please I need some advices.
Hi i had a sex with sex worker last sunday.I had oral sex with her now i am afraid to get infected by HIV.Please help me through this .How mach is the chance that i get infected?what should i do now?Thanks
Few days back, I had oral sex with a girl. Initially, I was using only one condom for oral, later on I decided to use the second one on top of first one. The session went on for 15-20 minutes with breaks in between and I finally ejaculated inside the condoms. I saw that there was no leakage when I removed the condoms and disposed it off. I am worried so much now because off late I saw so many posts says double condoms leads to tear or holes in condom due to friction. Am I at risk of STD or HIV. Please help me this was my first oral and i never had sex before with anyone.
Hi dear Sir/Mamm,
Please help me solve the mysterious symptoms I've been going through for almost a month. I first started to feel gum hurting and a dry mouth on the 27th of May, the next day I started to have thrush on my tongue. I was so scared that this could be an indication of HIV infection. Since I've given oral sex to the same guy two and a half years, and also nine months ago. I went to my routine physical exam on the 28th, did a complete check on most body parts, CTs, x-rays and Blood tests all came out normal.
I went to a clinic to seek help for the thrush on May 31. The doctor examined my mouth and gave me a throat culture test which was NEGATIVE. He then expressed concerns on my immune system, suggesting me to take an HIV + STDs test, which I did. He also asked about my white blood cell levels, which I know is normal from the physical exam I took a few days before.
The next few days waiting for the results were like hell to me. My stomach started to make sounds the night I went back from the clinic, and I had diarrhea for a day after that. Also felt fatigue sometimes and my dry mouth and oral thrush keeps getting worse, the anti-fungal medicine my doctor prescribed didn't help at all.
On June 3rd, I finally got my test results, everything came back NEGATIVE. But I didn't feel relieved because I'm still having the oral thrush, and it seemed have spread to my throat since I feel a bit pain when swallowing food.
I went to the clinic again on June 5th in search for the cause of my persisting thrush, and why I keep developing symptoms that are very close to hiv infection. The doctor reassured me that my previous test results are accurate since it was a 4th GEN AT/AG test. But I was still concerned since they didn't do the test in house; they drew my blood and sent the samples to a lab for the test. I worried that the results could've been wrong due to lab errors or mistakes made through this process. The doctor said I can get a rapid finger prick test on-site to give myself a peace of mind. I did, and the result is also NEGATIVE. The doctor then concluded that the thrush might be a result of antibiotics I took for a week after my wisdom teeth removal on May 14th.
Now more than a week after that, my thrush started to fade, but there still is quite a bit of thrush at the end of my tongue. I started to find rashes on my chest, my back and on my arms. Yesterday I woke up with a sore throat and a weird brownish red mark on my right arm. I experienced some mild fever last night and today, and the sore throat continues to bother me. My stomach still makes noises, I tend to get marks on my skin easily and sometimes my muscles sours for no reason.
I know I probably seem really paranoid, but is there a chance that I was at the late stage of an infection so the test couldn't find any antibodies? (I asked this since I read thrush is a symptom mostly occurring on late-stage patients.)
Or could it be some kind of new string of virus that the tests couldn't detect? And how likely could the clinic have messed up my test results?
Is it necessary for me to get tested again using methods that look for the virus directly? Like RNA or viral load tests? Is it necessary to get a CD4/CD8 count too to rule out any other immune system diseases?
I'd be really grateful if you could answer my concerns since they've been bothering me so much!!
Hi, I am a 17 year old who received unprotected oral sex from a street worker. I asked her if she was clean and she said yes. after the encounter I started to get stressed out as I thought I may have contracted HIV. 3 days after the encounter I felt feverish and very stressed. I suffered from a sore throat mild fever and headache. 6 days after the encounter and I've got a red early cold sore like mark on my lower lip. I am really scared please help.
Hi, Last week I had a protected blow job in a massage center, Before that she licked my balls. Finally she wiped the balls with warm towel and cleaned the tip of my penis with the same towel. All happened with in 5 to 10 mins of time. Her Status is unknown, do i carry any risk of getting HIV?
Hi. 24 days ago I received oral and anilingus. I know the risk is negligible for these, but the thing is I had a cut around my anus where he was giving. I don't know why I'm stressing this so much. Is 24 days too soon to get accurate results from a 4th generation test? Also, are you guys related to CDC in terms of information about everything with risks and such?
Please pardon my bad english. I have a problem that I seriously need your help. One week ago. I had 3 sex workers performed oral sex on me. Each of them took turns and I didn't ejaculate. About 2 months ago, at the bottom/ root of my penis, it feft itch a lot, i scratched it and then had some sores/scratchs (about 1 cm long each). no blood, some hurt when I touch them. When I went to the sex worker I still felt the itch in my penis and had the scratchs/ sore in the positions as described above.
I now have sore throats, sore lips and coughing. I fear that when I had oral sex the blood of the sex workers in their mouths or remained semen from the previous clients my went through the sores/scratchs (which carried HIV virus with them) cause me exposed to HIV.
Dear Doctor, Please Enlighten me if such situations could happen. Am I exposed to HIV? I am extremely worried.
