PEP

I still don´t get it: risk level

I have searched your database, however I still have doubts. I had vaginal intercourse and the condom broke, I felt it immediately and remove my penis. Am I in high risk of getting HIV?

Thank you very much for your answer, I am very anxious about this issue.

Confusion about post PEP testing

Hello,

I had unprotected sex with a sex worker.after 4 days I was placed on 30 days PEP (Yes, I know it is late). I completed the 30 days and 4 weeks post PEP (8.5 weeks post exposure) I had 2 Rapid finger prick tests. Both came back Negative.

1. I was wondering if PEP has any chance at working after 3 days ?
2. What are the chances of it interfering with an antibody test at 8 weeks post exposure ?

Thanks for your time

Unprotected anal sex and PEP

I had unprotected anal sex by penetrating (top) a guy for the first time and it lasted for a few minutes. We performed oral sex on each other and he also swallowed my semen. He claims to be negative since his last testing a month ago but I am not sure if he could have acquired it after the test and before having sex with me. I felt a light burning sensation on my penis and went to get PEP (two tablets/once a day) on the third day after my potential exposure. I was tested negative when I went to get my PEP prescription.

Based on my situation, what is the effectiveness of PEP to prevent me from acquiring HIV?

Thank you!

Analingus with chapped lips

I am a man, and received condomless oral sex from a transexual that I met on the internet. While she did so, I performed analingus on her. My lips were chapped at the time. The entire experience only lasted a few minutes. However, as I was leaving, I met another man coming into her apartment.
I was freaked out by this experience and went to the hospital the next day to receive nPEP. My doctor advised against it, but said that I could still receive it, and today is the end of my 72 hour window. I'm still very worried; can you advise me? Should I start PEP?

PLEASE ARE MY NEGATIVE RESULTS CONCLUSIVE EVEN WITH ORAL THRUSH

I had an exposure 6 times on two consective days. Unprotected virginal sex. I took PEP for 28 days which i started within 72hours. I took HIV duo test at 14 weeks 1 day post PEP (18 weeks 2 days post exposure) which came out non reactive (0.02). I also took Hepatitis C rapid antibody test at 122 days post exposure and it was negative. The problem is that i have been having oral thrush for almost 3 months now. Can i rely on my results or should i wait for six months in case of delayed seroconversion? Is my hepatitis C result also conclusive? Am really scared please help. By the way the baseline HIV antibody test for both me and the lady i had sex with was negative but to rule out possibility of window period i took PEP.

PLEASE AM I SAFE

I had an exposure and took PEP for 28 days which i started within 72 hours. I did the following tests which all came back non reactive:

1) At 105 days post exposure (76 days post pep) 3rd Generation HIV Elisa Antibody test which was non reactive.
2) At 119 days post exposure (90 days post pep) Determine HIV Antibody test which was still non reactive.
3) At 122 days post exposure-Hepatitis C rapid test which came back non reactive as well. Can i consider my results conclusive since the guidelines state that delayed seroconversion only occurred in people who acquired Hepatitis C together with the HIV virus. Please respond and this will be the last time am asking.

Penis head Insertion for 10-20 seconds. Post-PEP testing

I had an exposure of penis head entering twice in my anus for just 10-20 seconds. No ejaculation, just pre-cum.
I got scared and was on PEP for 30 days. I got tested today exactly at 6 weeks or 42 days post pep with 2 HIV tests, one was Rapid uni-gold HIV test and rapid Alere Determine Ag/Ab 4th generation HIV test at the same clinic. both came out negative at 6 weeks post pep. I was wondering will this testing shows that i am negative and what are my chances at 3 month testing ? I know post pep guideline says 3 months testing. i was just nervous and got tested at 6 weeks. And do i also need a 6 months test ? Thanks

Condom Broke

Good evening.
I had sexual intercourse with my girlfriend last night.
The condom broke and I immediately pulled out. I have not ejaculated.

Both of us are still 20. We only had sex with each other. She has had no previous sexual partners. She has never kissed anyone before me. She has never done anything sexual basically before me. Same goes for me. I haven't done anything sexual and she is my first.

Both of us have never have never used used needles before. Never have we used drugs.

We have never received blood donations too.

My parents are negative for sure. Her parents too.

What are the chances of HIV transmission?

It's been a day now. Should I go get PEP or should I just let it go?

Thanks for your help.

Blood on toilet paper

Hello,

If toilet paper had blood on it and it was used to wipe the vagina, would that be worry enough to get and use PRep?

Thank you!
