PEP

Exposure again while on pep medication

Hello,
My name is Chikondi Fundou from Malawi, i had an unprotected sex with a girl whom i dont know her status, so i went to the clinic within 15 hours after exposure and they prescribed me PEP, so i began the medication right away but after 3 weeks on the medication, foolish enough i went to a friends party and got drunk and stupidly i had another unprotected sex, so my question is should i go to the clinic for another PEP or its okay the PEP i am taking will be enough? and what are the chances that the pep will work because i heard that if you take it more than once the body will get used and the virus will be resistant to the drug?

Window period of hiv test

After PEP TREATMENT FINISH. When should I test for hiv test....

INSERTIVE ORAL SEX HIV RISK

I had unprotected INSERTIVE oral sex with a prostitute. The following day i went to the Clinic and i was given PEP. Then i looked for the prostitute the day after starting PEP and took her for HIV 1/2 (Duo) serum test, Syphilis test, HBsAg and AntiHCV (rapid) which all came back Non reactive. I went back to the doctor after the results and he told me since the results were negative i should stop PEP and move on. so i stopped PEP on my 5th day. But am sick and worried of the fact that she might have been in her window period. Though she assured me that she is not sick because every 3 months she goes for check up and practices safe sex. The only time she does not use the condom is during oral sex.

Am i at Risk of contracting HIV from receiving unprotected oral sex on my penis? Was i wrong to stop PEP? Was the doctor right to ask me to stop PEP? and have read somewhere were it says insertive oral sex is negligible risk and no case has been documented. Am i sick.

UNPROTECTED ORAL SEX. SICK AND WORRIED OF CONTRACTING HIV

I had unprotected oral sex on my penis with a CSW. she sucked my penis. After 13 hours post exposure i went to the Clinic and i was given PEP. The following day i looked for the CSW and took her for the following HIV and STD screening and the results were as follows:

1. HIV I/II determine antibody test-Non reactive
2. HIV I/II (duo) Serum test- Non reactive
3. Symphilis- Non reactive
4. HBsAg-Negative
5.AntiHCV (rapid)- Non reactive

We will be going for gonorrhea and Chlamydia test soon.

Am i at Risk of contracting HIV from receiving unprotected oral sex on my penis? Should i continue with PEP or since the HIV results came back negative and since it was oral sex i received should i stop PEP treatment? Am on day four of PEP treatment.

PEP Failure

Good evening everyone. First, let me start by appreciating what you do here, using your time and resources to serve humanity. May God continue to give you all the strength to do more. Thanks.

During a vaginal sex (which lasted for about 4 minutes) with a CSW in Nigeria on June, 20 2019, I had finished and pulled out only to discover that the condom I used had ruptured. The following day (21 June 2019) I went to a clinic and was given one month course of PEP which I started within 23hrs. During the time I was taking the medication I experienced fatigue on 3 different occasions, cluster headache and intermittent nausea. I finished the medication on 20 July 2019 and since then have experienced the following symptoms: cluster headache that cause me pain in my eyeballs, pain that moves around all my joints, pain in my groin, lower back pain, light painful sensation in my armpit and under my jaw, recurrent nausea. 9 days after the course of PEP I developed a very high fever that will come, go, and come back again putting me in a state of feeling extremely hot and then extremely cold again, night sweats, pain in my calf and behind my knees that extends towards my thighs, peripheral neuropathy that causes tingling and numbness in all my limbs, nasal congestion in one of my nostrils that gets worse at night, light sour throat for few days, pain in my eyes and ears, chest pains, body ache and cramps.

This is my test update. 9 weeks post finishing PEP and 13 weeks post exposure, 3rd generation Alere antibody test-negative, but I am still having joint ache that moves around all my joints starting from my ankle joints to my knees, to my elbow joints and waist, and fingers. The pain would come and go and come back in a few days. Occasional body aches, pain in my eyeballs, nasal congestion in one of my nostrils that gets worse at night, few pimple-like rashes on my shoulders that would appear and go away in a few days and come back again, occasional chest pains. I think the PEP failed me and I am seroconverting. Please what do you think? I have read stories of people that seroconverted 6 months after taking PEP. Do you think I am one of such persons?

rubbing genitals

daer Sir,
i had sex last night with a sex worker, since i am highly afraid of STD's and HIV i never had penetrated her vagina, i just tried to put my pines between her legs somehow touching the vagina, i also used condom. since it was a delay condom and i didnt ejaculate i tried to masturbate in order to speed up the ejaculation. anyway it somehow caused to drop off the condom unintentionally and i put my pines between her legs and rubbing her wet vagina for 3 or 4 seconds (whitout condom) then i got ejaculated. I'd like to know that what is the chances of catching HIV since my pines touch her legs and genital's area which was totally wet by her fluids. should i be worried?
pls kindly answer me quickly.
highly appreciate your kindness.

getting HIV from engaging in oral sex

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.

needle prick on the street

Yesterday my ankle was pricked by a needle on the street - it didn't bleed. The emergency ward at St. Paul's gave me the 3 PEP medications to take for the first 5 days, telling me I'd feel sick and my liver and kidneys could be affected. I've got 2 hours to decide whether or not to take them (in the first 24 hours). Aids Vancouver would have helped with my decision, but they're closed today. I'm quite healthy and don't want to be sick for the next 5 days or ruin my liver or kidneys, but don't know what the chances are for HIV or how long it would take for it to manifest. I need help to make this decision.

Feeling infected after visiting massage parlour

I visited a massage parlor 11days before and post massage, therapist asked me that i need a HJ but i denied it. Then i started suspecting the place, like if the therapist is infected with HIV/possible semen/blood could have present over bed which i ad laid down.

Also, i have few pimples on my back with dry state/black colored state could allowed virus to get inside.

So, i started thinking like what if therapist could have previous client semen/blood in her hand/oil used might capable of hosting a virus.'

I also suspect the therapist could intentionally infected through her saliva/vaginal/blood from her hand cut(assuming as when i turn on other side) pouring on my shoulder because im not trusting the place that i visited since they offering HJ service.

Symtoms i have:
1.After two days started feeling fever and continued for three days
2.My HIV fear begins on fifth day then on sixth day i wnt to clinic to check my BP was high and no fever its within body temperature 98.6f however i started feeling hot flashes on same day and next two days.
3.on fifth day, i started feeling gum/cheek pain on right side
However i started feeling hot flashes on same day and next two days.
3.on fifth day, i started feel mouth gum/cheek pain on right side and loosen mental stability upon observing these symptoms.
4.from 7th day onwards am having difficulty in GL(bowl moement as am no abe to free my stomach)
5.had three night sweats but not severe
6.lost weight upto 3.5kg
its been 12days, m unable to come out of the stress and weight loss making me so sad.
These symptoms mostly related to HIV infection.
Please advise is there any caase similar to mine/ should i be worried??

Since i have not done any sexual activities but still am suffering from symptoms.

feel like my life is gone and sometimes feel good when i see comments about raw vaginal/anus intercourse/mother to child can infection occur. But not sure about current infections.

blood mixed with lignocaine splash onto eye from hiv+ who is on ART

I am recently exposed to a hiv 1 patient during tooth extraction via blood mixed with about 1 ml of lignocaine in a syringe, I felt a resistance during pushing the piston of the syringe. Suddenly the blood mixed lignocaine leaked and splashed to my eyes. I washed my eyes immediately with water and asked the patient about any disease history and he told that he is hiv positive and on ART SINCE last 5 years. I told our chief MO about the incident and he suggested me to Start PEP.. I STARTED PEP within 2 hours TL and LR( tenofovir with lamivudin and lopinavir with ritonavir) and also checked my recent hiv status which came out negative... The ICTC CENTER also informed me that the source patient is on ART his recent cd4 count was nearly 560 and pt is well controlled.. My last information is I washed the syringe to remove the major blood from the transparent portion with water before drawing 2nd time lignocaine.and the retained blood from needle and hub was then mixed with 1 ml of lignocane... how much risk in this situation ? please enlighten me... i am from India
