I know that this question has been asked but still really confused. I had an unsafe dipping incident for about 10 seconds, i was the bottom, when i realized what was going on i immediately stopped it. 48 hr later i was on pep (truvada and isnentress) 4th generation ab/ag w/rfl negative also neg rapid. finished the 30 days, 5 days later went in had another rapid test and 4th generation and both negative. dr told me i was in the clear, he said even antigen or antibody at a low level would of been picked up by the their 4th gen test. I questioned it considering everything i had read on the internet about pep maybe delaying seroconversion. he said i was clear but if i wanted to be cautious i could do another rapid test at 3 months but that he has never seen the 4th gen test right after pep get it wrong. please help. nervous wreck.
I am a dancer, and on Friday 6/24, I agreed to have sex for money. i had put the condom on him to ensure it was on properly and during a short period of maybe 3-4 min ( maybe less) i was on top. I got off to switch positions and as i was getting off slowly i used my hand to hold the condom down so it doesnt come off, thats when i noticed it wasnt on, it had slipped off inside me. He had another condom n this time i was EXTRA cautious. He didnt come until sometime later after i had changed the condoms. He assured me hes a cautious person as well, and always uses condoms even with his girlfriend. I live in Texas, usa and for some reason pep is not well known here. Ive spoken to a few healthcare providers and have been told such a thing does not exist. I found a clinic in houston, TX that does offer a prescription for it, and knowing that its really expensive I needed to know if its somthing that I should get.
Today I go to barber shop. When the barber change the razor blade, he cut his finger. And then, he shave my head with exactly that blade :( Now Im really worry. Is this a risk? SHould i take pep? Thank for your help and sorry for the bad English
God bless you for your help on assessing risks.
My risk is - There was blood draw happening for many patients in a row. After my blood draw, nurse put band-aid on my arm as I was having small blood coming out. The band-aids she was using were already opened for readily use. Opened bandages were slightly stick in a tray. I noticed that the tray was having lot of red blood spots all over, may be from her gloves because her gloves were having blood and she was not changing gloves after every patient. It went so quick that I could not stop her. But now I am worried what if the band-aid swab (cotton part) was soaked with infected blood from tray or from her hands. Then that touched my actively bleeding dot and HIV might got a passage from that contact - if I think from microscopic view.
I read HIV don't transmit from surface it is reactive only inside human body. But we have documented cases of HIV from dental procedure which can be considered as surface.
Request you to please advise should I go for Post-Exposure Prophylaxis as it just happened today
I had an exposure on March 7th, 2016.. I tested up until June 1st, 2016 which makes it around 86-87 days, which is around 12 weeks and it came back negative. I did not use PEP for this exposure. I should add that it was with a sex worker and I used protection and it did not break. I was happy to take the negative result as conclusive until I read that if you have used PEP in the past it might delay the reading and I might have to wait up to 6 months for a conclusive result. I used PEP on two occasions in the past and adhered to the regimen and tested up to 6 months for each time. Does that mean my 12 week Neg for this exposure part can be wrong? I am only worried because I am scared that I may have aquired HIV despite condoms, from the base of my penis, through small cuts, undiagnosed herpes, or syphilis or something.
Please let me know. Will past PEP usage affect my 12 week negative result from the tests done at a reputable sexual health clinic here in Australia ?
i used pep and iv heard it is very important to take it the exact same time every day. I am finished my pep but i am worried about the usage. There were some days were i wasnt able to take the pep at the exact same time. the doctor said it was fine just try to take it consistently. will a few times taking it at different times effect the results substantially ?
Hi, i was had a possible high exposure about 2 months ago when a condom broke. I started PEP about 32 hours post exposure. I have a few questions. I have noticed a rash that resembles hives and about 5 sores that resemble exemia (dry skin, when i scratched it a little the skin fell off and left a sore. basically the skin peeled) showed up after my pep ended probably about 6 weeks after exposure. my skin is itchy a lot and I have heard these are all possible symptoms of contracting the virus.
1. My pep ended about a month ago when should i get tested?
2. Is the rash a sign i have contracted the virus?
3. Assuming it is hiv rash when will it stop itching?
Vaginal sex, condom broke for brief period and started Truvada after 26 hours. After 3 days partner is HIV Negative by Ora quick test
Very sad story. Met a girl in strip club, after few days I (44 years old) had a protected sex with that girl. But my condom was broke in middle and my top exposed for 20 seconds - 1 min max. I stop the sex and clean my penis with soap water. Penis is dry and no fluids have been noticed. Local Doctor gave Truvada only (PEP) and other antibacterials drugs as well.
After 5 days, I explained my panic situation. She said, she has a baby 4 months back and she tested HIV while she was pregnant and came negative. I convinced her for Ora Quick test and she took with confident and it came negative.
Here my questions are …
1. Do I need to worry about anything? Or am I out of danger since my partner is HIV negative?
2. This is my 6th day for Truvada. Can I continue Truvada? If yes, do I need to add any other PEP drug?
Please advise me.
I had unprotected sex with someone I later realized was hardcore heroine addict. He had a wristband on at the time telling me an elaborate story. He was actually covering all of his track marks and sores. After realizing this, I borrowed anti viral medication. Y the name of acyclovir. I've been taking 800mg a day for the past week after having intercourse with him. He did not cum inside me, but there could have been pre ejaculation that entered inside me. I also happened to be menstuarating and I am curious if that will have any effect on transmission. I am also curious if the acyclovir will help prevent transmission or is it too late?
Hey, I came here to just get an opinion on what I should do. So earlier today (About 3 PM EST), I hooked up with a guy (I'm gay), I didn't know too much about him, but I did so anyway. I know, definitely horrible judgement on my part. There was no anal, but we did do some other stuff. We jerked each other off, he did suck my dick, we frotted (rubbing our dicks together, tip of our penises didn't touch though), and I rimmed his ass a little bit. Just some small kisses to his cheeks and hole, I didn't stick my tongue in his ass though.
Also, he came on my chest. So he wiped off with a towel. Then like 3 mins later, after dry humping his butt (tip didn't touch his butt), I came on his back. We wipe off with the same towel. The only thing is... that towel touched the tip of my penis. I'm not sure if it was the side with the cum on it or not. And I know nothing about this guy, I don't know his status and what not. We didn't do anything too crazy, but I'm still just worried and am wondering if I should go on PEP. So far it's been 8 hours since this all took place, so I would really appreciate a response back soon. Thank you all. Sorry if this post is too messy, and sorry if this has already been asked. I just wanted a clear opinion from you guys, about all the stuff I did.
Also, here's a re-cap of what I did in case you're confused:
-We were kissing
-We both rubbed each other's dicks
-He sucked my dick
-I rimmed his ass (no tongue)
-We frotted (tips of penis didn't touch)
-I dry humped his butt (tip didn't touch his hole)
-His cum was on a towel for 3 mins before it touched mine
