Pooled RNA/Early Test

HIV risk

I am very scared. My gf cheated on me. she was hiv negative but she had sex with someone of unknown hiv status and then we had sex with me after 12 days. My condom beak. what are my chances of hiv from this as she has a exposure 12 days ago with someone else and i had sex with her. Can i get hiv if i had sex with her after she exposed to the virus?

What should I do. Please advice.

I had sex with a sex worker 5 days back. It was vaginal sex with condom and blowjob with condom. I had a minor cut on the front of my penis but it was fully covered by the condom.I did not kiss her in her mouth but sucked her breast which was not lactating. I do not have any symptoms as of now and I do not know if the lady was HIV infected. Am I at high risk?What should I do now?? Which test is better RNA or 4th Generation Anti body test? When should I do the RNA test???

What should I do. Please advice.

I had sex with a sex worker 4 days back. She gave me a blow job with condom and I had virginal sex using a condom for like 3 mins. I did not kiss her in her mouth but sucked her breast(with out milk). I had a minor cut(little bleeding) on the front part of my penis but it was covered by the condom during blowjob and sex.I am feeling perfectly fine as of now but I am very scared and I will never do this again. So here are my questions
1- How high are my chances of getting infected with HIV.
2- What is the best testing available in the market. Is RNA Testing or 4th generation HIV testing more effective and when should I do the testing?
3- Is it safe to have both protective and unprotected sex(both oral and Viginal) with my girlfriend if the results comeback negative.
4- Should I consult a doctor before testing ? If so which doctor would you recommend. I live in Irving(TX-75038).

Early test- pooled RNA NAAT

The window after possible exposure to HIV for the Pooled RNA NAAT (Early Test) says 10-12 day. Would this test be more effective or accurate waiting say 21 days after exposure?

Early testing

Chances of STDs after protected vaginal intercourse?

Hi there,

About a week ago I had vaginal intercourse with a women. First we used a condom for oral sex, and then I used a new condom for vaginal sex. The condoms were put on properly both times and they did not break. A little bit of lubricant was also used.

My only worry is that I know this individual has many sexual partners, although she is always safe, as in this case. Also, she has been tested within the last 6 weeks for any STD's.

I'm still a little concerned though. I do have anxiety problems which makes the whole situation worse. My question is, should I get myself tested?

It's hard for me to wait many more weeks so I was thinking to get the RNA test done next week, however, this test is extremely expensive.

I spoke with a few people and the main advice I received is that if we were safe and the condom did not break, then even if the other individual had an STD, it is not really possible for her to give it to me (unless it is something that can be passed along with just skin to skin contact of course). And on top of that she has been recently tested. I have been told it is not necessary to get tested given the facts. What would you suggest in this case?

broken condom/Worried about HIV risk

i am a 18 year old girl, i was having sexual intercourse with a 22 year old man, towards the end of the intercourse, the condom broke, but he did not tell me and continued but not for very long, not even 2 minutes, as he then ejaculated but using the withdrawal method, which is when i found it the condom was broken.... he has had a history of sleeping with a number of girls, i dont know whether he is HIV + or - , and so i am freaking out, i guess i just want to know the chance of me getting pregnant and getting HIV... please help

giving medication to an HIV positive via port IV

I gave medication to an hiv positive patient via port IV, then I accidentally poked my finger after I gave my medication, can I be infected with HIV? tnx

Pooled RNA test

Thanks for answering my question on chances of HIV when the condom broke condom during intercourse with a sex worker.
I will appreciate if you can address my following concerns :
1. Is there a place in Edmonton where I can get Pooled RNA test done.
2. should I wait 10 day or exactly 12 days after the exposure to get this test done.
3.are the results to this test conclusive of my HIV status or do I need to get another test done after 3 months.
4.I was reading other blogs on the situation where the condom broke during intercourse and the Dr.s have recommended the chances between 1/10000 and 1/1000 of getting HIV in this case. which is again very confusion.
Is there any substance to these statistics? if so then what are the chances?
Please advice I am really very scared.
