Thanks for your service, it is great help for all of us that want to know more about safe sex practices.
I am really worried about a sexual intercourse that I had yesterday; and I could not really get an answer to my question or assess if I were exposed to the risk of getting HIV.
I have met with a guy that I do not know, and I wanted to have anal sex with him.
Yesterday, I was a bit tipsy and started pushing my penis on his anus without a condom. I think that I have entered in it a bit, for a very brief moment. To be precise, I did not enter with my full head of the penis, but slightly with the tip. I read only that there is a chance that HIV can pass through the head of the penis if it comes in contact with the anal fluids.
I am worried if I should worry about this intercourse, and if I should take PEP.
Thanks in advance for your response.
I had an unprotected vaginal and oral sex while I had a herpes on my lips
Week 3: started to feel pain in my right armpit and left groin
I was so anexious so I started to take black seed daily based on this article please take a look at it
I’m still on this herbal therapy
Week 4-6: had 2 DUO tests as well as one Individual NAAT all came negative
Week 7: some symptoms appeared one after one including fevers chills a sore throat, join pain,malaise, fatigue, nausea and herpes
Week 8-10: severity of symptoms declined and disappeared by end of the week 10 except the fever
I had 3 negative DUO tests weekly
Week 11-13: all the lymph network is painful including armpits, shoulders, arms, chest, belly, groins, neck...
2 suspicious bruises
The fever showed up and disappeared once in a while
I had 3 negative DUO tests as well as another negative individual NAAT
I am writing to you in week 14th and I’m totally fed up with HIV testing
To check other possible risks, I had a complete blood test, all in normal range
I lost my weight during this period 2-3kg and the worst part is the painful lymph network is still there.
Would you please asses my risk of HIV infection?
I had an unprotected sex with a HIV+ girl 3 months ago and i made a stupid decision, I started to take unprescribed HAART med from day 1
Now it’s been 2 months I’m suffering from armpit, neck and groin lymphopathy
Tested negative ELISA and NAAT both out of window periods(day 80-85)
What have I done? Am I gonna die?
I think I would never seroconvert like this since the med is keeping viral load blew detectable line so the immune system won’t produce enough antibodies. The virus is replicating in my lymph nodes and eats up my CD4s continuously
I am a straight 21 year old male. I had unprotected sex for the first time on June 25 with a girl for a few minutes. I started with a condom but could not finish so I took it off for the end. A few days after, I developed a lot of pain in my groin area and legs. I went to my doctor and he said I have an infection and prescribed me penicillin. It turned out to be a muscle strain after an MRI and pain pills. However, I finished the medicine. About 7 days into the medicine treatment, I developed a rash on my chest, oral thrush and a rapid heart rate. My doctor said I was allergic to penicillin and gave a steroid which helped for a while. It then came back and I have had severe anxiety about it being HIV. I asked my partner to get tested about 7 weeks later and she did and was negative. She said I have nothing to worry about however my anxiety is killing me. I did an Oraquick test last week and was negative which was about 11 weeks later. I still cannot get it out of my head. Should I be worried? I have never felt so alone and scared in my life. Thank you.
I have done sexual activity with trans woman sex worker for the first time, Both used condom, I received anal from the trans woman but after reading on internet i got anxiety that the condom was broken or had tears and that is just like condom was not used! The meeting was not too long, was like 1 hour.
I have done PCR RNA and Ab tests at day 8, with other testes like Hep B,C and Syphilis. Thankfully all were negative. After that i read in the Internet that PCR RNA test is not accurate and I read that there is 4th gen test Ab/Ag that can be done after 28 days.
I have done the DUO test at the start of day 28. The result was negative.
I still have anxiety and it is irritating my overall health.
I would appreciate your kind response. Should I stay worried?
One day ago since this question posted, I sucked a 20 years old gay man's penis for 3-4 seconds and immediately spat since I didn't like it. I am not sure if there was any precum or semen while I sucked but the penis seemed dry before I put it in my mouth and I didn't put his entire penis in my mouth. After that, I kissed that man passionately with tongue.
I met the man on dating app who says he is HIV negative and in past only had protected anal sex with men but has not gone through any HIV tests since he felt he wasn't needed same.
I'm virgin and have no prior sex experience. Now I'm scared of getting HIV virus. Can you please help me? What shall I do? Many thanks in advance.
I would like to start with the thing that I am on PreP and taking it every day. 3 weeks ago or maybe a bit less I had unprotected sex and starting from Saturday (4th day today) I've been having a severe headache that never had before and some fever not higher though than 37.8C.
I am on painkillers right now and I would say it works quite alright. I tested my blood for HIV by HIV DUO Quick HIV1/HIV2 BIOMERIEUX yesterday and got results to be negative today. I asked the consultant about my situation taking into consideration the fever and severe headache whether it's confirmed that these symptoms were not caused by the conversion just by smth else since I believe that if someone has a conversion going on in their bodies with above-mentioned symptoms it means that a viral load is high and it would be easily detected by the machine. The consultant asked me to contact my doctor since he was not sure about that. I am out of the country now and I've got no possibility to do so. Could you please help me with that?
P.S. I stopped taking PreP on Saturday, the day I felt bad.
I did 2 HIV test, 1st test after exposure of 5 months and 2nd after 1 year of 1st test. Both were negative. Are these results conclusive?
Hello Sir, i had a girlfriend, who was HIV positive, and after our break up she told me that she is HIV positive. We had sex alot of times but most of time i used Condoms. But still i tested myself on sep 2016, it was an Antibody and antigen p24 test. The report was nonreactive. Again after 1 year i tested myself cause i was abit confused due to having a wart near my genital ... test was same Antibody and antigen p24 test. Again the report was nonreactive. can i rely on these reports or again i should go for a HIV test?
I recently had a MSM encounter with someone. Neither one of us is on PREP. We were making out naked and I could feel is penis pressing against my anus. The tip of his penis pressed considerably inside anus but I quickly pulled back. Would this be considered low risk or am I at risk at being HIV infected? It happened last Wednesday the 4th of July. Should I consider any immediate actions?
