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
I went to strip club recently and stripper opened up my penis and inserted into her vagina. how ever I did not feel penetration as I did not feel it went into vagina fully( may be she tricked me because I was drunk) she danced like that about 1-2 minutes and I did not feel vaginal fluids at all after I started masturbating and ejaculated outside. It was not like a proper sex with penetration as I did not feel a thing. How ever I took PEP for 28 days with just Truvada. So my questions are ,
1. What are the chances of risk without PEP and with PEP?
2. How effective is Truvada alone for PEP?
3. How soon I can test since I am done with PEP to get conclusive early as possible?
4. Chances of getting HIV even if penis goes half the way into vagina?
Please help as I am extremely worried.
Hi!, an 84 days test after PEP (and 114 days after exposure) is trustworthy?. Thanks!
Hi Vancouver help team,
Im deeply concerned...a few days ago i was getting oral sex from a sexual worker and during the process she cut me with her teeth. I felt the cut instantly and took it out from her mouth right away.
It started bleeding and i panicked...she assured me she was not infected or anything.. but she was performing oral sex without condom... and she probably did the same to many other guys.
She inmediatly gave me iodin and spilled over my pennis and bandaged it. She said she didnt had any cuts or blisters in her mouth, and that it never happened to her... but i cant be sure.
Question is, even if i removed it instantly from her mouth and applied generous ammounts of iodin, is it possible that i have gotten HIV?
I've read that you could take a cocktail before 36 hours have passed and that might neutralize the virus... should i start taking the cocktail right away and then wait to do the VIH test?
Please, please, please, help me!
I had spontaneous insertive anal sex with a man today, I did not know him and I did not get any contact details. We used a condom at first, as I always make sure to carry one around with me in my bag just in case, but it snapped about half-way through, so I threw it away and we kept going for another few minutes. Once we finished I urinated about 20 minutes later as well as cleaning myself up with some water and then drying myself to make sure I was clean.
I'm uncircumcised, how likely is it that I would have gotten HIV from this, and what should I do?
