Touching a vibrator

Hi, so I work in the airline industry and it was brought to my attention that a bag was vibrating, I have to open it for security reasons, and what was vibrating was a vibrator and I had to turn it off, now, I was wearing gloves, but when I took my gloves off, and touched my gloves with bear hands, made me wonder what if the had std or hiv. I went along continuing working forgetting to wash up, I probably touched my face with my bear hands..
Is there any need to worry?

Frottage HIV Risk

Two weeks ago, I had an encounter with another guy. We did mutual masturbation where I rubbed my penis against his, and then we jerked each other off. He came first and got semen on my hand. I used that same hand to then jerk me off until I came. I am worried that some of his cum could have entered my urethra during frottage or when he jerked me off and infected me. I also have warts on my hands and am worried that increased my risk of exposure. I became really nervous after I got a quarter sized rash on my arm. Am I at risk for getting HIV?

Oral encounter and afraid

I had an encounter where I got oral sex performed on my scrotum. After about 20 minutes she tried to put my penis in her mouth. Before the encounter I shaved and had a small cut between the base of my penis and the scrotum. Some saliva may have gotten on it. She moved up to put my penis in her mouth and it was literally there for only 2 seconds then I put on a condom and we continued for maybe 2 minutes. What are the chances of STDs or HIV transmission? I am really concerned. What testing should I get done and possibly how long should I wait. To be on the safe side I took some Amoxicillin because I have been feeling weird since. I have been feeling tired, fatigue, headaches or migraines. I haven't had any rashes, discharge or itchy/burning feelings. Thanks!

HIV transmission from vaginal and anal fingering

Hello. I recently had an encounter whereby a new partner who is unsure of his STI status fingered my vagina and anus. He touched his penis before doing this as he wanted to rub his penis onto my vagina but I rejected this as he didn't have any condoms. There was only a few seconds after touching his penis that he fingered me. I was worried about my risk because he told me that he used to be a male prostitute and didn't always use condoms. What is the likelihood of contracting HIV from this encounter?

anal sex with a transexual

I had anal sex with a transexual prostitute, I used a condom, I was the insertive person, the anal sex lasted less than 2 minutes. I went back to the hotel, washed my genital with a hot wash cloth and went to bed. I didn't notice any cuts or abrasions at that time but I was drunk. Now I have a history of genital herpes, and in the morning I noticed I had a couple of sores on my penis. I am pretty sure the sores (if they were there when I had anal sex) were covered by the condom. What is my chance of getting hiv. thank you.

About one year ago, I contracted genital herpes from my boyfriend who was unfaithful at the time. Out of worry about other diseases, I got tested for HIV 12 weeks later and the results came back negative; however am I unsure which (generation) test I was issued except that it was a rapid test. I experienced no flu-like symptoms at the time of possible exposure till now; except that a few days ago I noticed a lymph node in my neck and in my armpits are swollen for no apparent reason. Should I be worried?

Handjob, open wounds

Yesterday I gave a guy a handjob and he ejaculated on my hands. On my fingers there were tiny open wounds but I don't know whether his semen got contacted with them or not. (We also had unprotected oral sex.) I don't know if he has any kind of STD, so I'm a little worried that I might have got infected with HIV. Should I get tested for HIV? If yes, what is the window period for HIV? Thank you!
