HIV

Hi,
I had unprotected vaginal sex with a Thai bargirl on Nov 25. So far I have had 2 tests. First was a combo at 25 days ( negative) and Western Blot on the 10 Jan ,just over 6 weeks.Also negative. Last week I felt my lymph node on left collarbone about the size of a small pea, It can move but not sore. Also had the burning pins feeling over various parts of the body at different times. Had the usual sore throat and stress related issues as well( churning gut, lack of appetite and lost weight, 7kgs from 85 kgs.I realise the need to retest after 3 months, but was wondering your thoughts on accuracy of aformentioned tests at these times.
Thanks alot

protected sex with STD

Hello, I have a doubt about HIV Transmission. Please clarify them. If a person participated in protected sex with a HIV+ female. At the same he is having STD lesions on his penile fore head. And also he was an uncircumcised male. If the condom did not fail, was there any chance to got HIV? What are the probabilities to catch HIV between healthy person and these type of person by protected sex? Thanks to all for your great work. May God Bless you.  

Some questions on risk and STD

 I called the Department of Health hotline regarding some test issues. I said I have a HIV test negative after window period. After one year I only have one unprotected handjob (receiving side). They said if this is the case I am risk free and do not require test because...
1. The test is negative first
2. After that I only have received one hand job which they said is risk free and not a route of transmission. They ask if I have vaginal, anal and oral sex or shared needle which I said no. They said hand job is not a "insertion" sex and is not route of transmission, is that true?
3. They said I should however consider other STD from hand job instead of HIV? Really? I feel quite ok now, no funny thing with my penis..
 
Thanks for the help

sex phobia

Hi there,
first, i'd like to thank you for helping people including me at week 6, i had HIV Rapid test and other STIs and at week 12 i had another HIV Rapid Test. All my results came back negative.

now, i do not what should i do??? should i talk to psychologist?
i never felt like this before deciding to know my status and reading about diseases.
please i need your advice.
thank you,
 

Urine testing

Hi,
 
I just had a urine test done to check for any STI. The test came back negative, but I do remember that before I capped the urine sample, I accidentally spilled a slight amount. Would this make my urine analysis invalid?
 
Thanks in advance!
 

protected sex with STD

Hello,
I have a doubt about HIV transmission. Please clear it.
If a male having an STD and some rash on his penis head. And participated in veginal intercourse with a HIV suspected women with USING CONDOM. What are his chances to catch HIV?
There is any differential probability to catch HIV even after using CONDOME between a healthy person and STD person. [ Let the condom did not fail]
Thanks to all for such a great job.

Fear of HIV

Hello, I am an uncirmcised 27 years old male and I had protected sex with CSW. Before wearing condom I pulled my foreskin back. The encounter lasted about 15 to 20 minutes. After removing penis I observed some sperm in between penis ring and condom and the condom ruptured a very little at that spot. Then I remove condom and wiped my penis head with BED SHEET which we SLEPT TOGETHER. After two days it started mild itching on penis ring and mild rash on penis head. The rash is non itchy. The rash was red and little small pimples like 3 to 5 bumps are there. My GP told that It was not STD just a hypo dermis inflammation. I search in net and fond it was like BALANITIS. He prescribed an ointment and it was go away and come back after a week I stopped the ointment. It is 15 days over. I have mild yellow tongue. And fear of HIV and tension. Please tell me what are the probabilities to catch an STD or HIV ? It there any chances to catch some thing even after using condom? In this situation having Balanitis rash on penis head, If I will participate in protected sex with a suspected woman it will increase my chances to catch some thing? Thanks to all. You are the right source of information to us.

Conclusive or more testing?

 Ok so I will try and make it short. Jan.28 th I has unprotected sex with a HIV + man. ( I did not know this then) 3 days later i told my boyfriend that I cheeted. We were however separated somewhat. Anyways we had unprotected sex. 2 weeks later I came down with a horrible stomach ache, loose stools, migranes, sinus infection, really tired, skin irritation and sensitivity. Sore throat and a tongue that looked ( not right) yellow white curdle appearance. So I took a 30 day, 63 ,93, 5 months, 7 months and 9 month test all antibody test one oral at 5. 7 and 9 month were sent out to ACL lab ( no idea what generation) my boyfriend 2 weeks later was complaining of headache, Loose stool, lost about 10 lbs of muscle. And i feel like something is just not right. I read that 6 months for known exposure in the USA (where i live) but there have been reported cases of longer! I can't afford a viral load test . What do you think testing done and symptoms are nothing? I still have a very sore throat, migranes, ear infection, and crazy fungus stuff today ! So annoying it's a constant reminder something is wrong!! All doctors say they see it looks like infection but dont know !? Ent said he didn't know ? Please what do u think?? Thank you
