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.
My problem now is i have sex phobia. the time that i waited (the 12 weeks) makes me scared of sex. plus, it affects my daily life ( scared of HCV). i wear gloves almost all the time, especially in public places. HCV can live outside the host up to 4 days.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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
