hi i am jinx from the philippines i had unprotected anal (im on top) with a stranger on march 1, 2016 and got i got tested on june 9, 2016 in a government building that offers free test the test was rapid immunochromatographic assay. the city in which i live is hiv free from 1998 to 2012 but im still confused because i had hiv symptoms that might be nothing more than just a result of heat (summer here is very hot in fact a almost 10 people from where i live died of heat exhaustion). i had rashes in my neck and shoulders. and tired other than that no more symptoms that i saw on the internet *question should i get tested again or feel safe and how accurate is a rapid immunochromatographic assay thanks
I really appreciate the work you guys are doing. I have had a sexual intercourse in Bangladesh where i had Vaginal and oral sex. I had used a condom to limit my risk but i was a little drunk and could not have proper intercourse though i had penetrated her vagina 5 or 6 times.She then used a tissue to remove her vaginal fluids it took her approximately 2 mins and then she performed oral sex after a few mins she had taken the condom off and now she performed oral sex without condom. I am worried i might get HIV through this session i had done 3 Elisa 3rd generation tests one at 2 week after the intercourse one at 22 days and one at 29 days. i have a cold and tonsils inflated also the right part of my neck is stiff and i have had 2 inflated lumps. Please give me a feed back it would be really hepful
I had unprotected sex with another male approximately 3 moths ago. I do not know if he is infected or not. A week ago, I started feeling sick; I had a sore throat. I went to the doctor and he said my left tonsil was very swollen and that it might be an abscess, so I started taking antibiotics and after 4 days it got much, much better. I have no pain now.
The doctor changed one of the antibiotics, and ever since the first time I took the first pill I felt sick. At night, 3 hours (approximately) after taking the second pill, my face started to itch and the rash lasted for about 5-10 minutes.
I've been reading a lot about HIV and I read that the most common symptoms include: rash and sore throat. I know I might be overreacting, but I am scared I could actually have contracted HIV.
Can it be a possibility or is it just my nerves?
I rubbed my penis on a girls vagina who was having periods. The maximum time was a few minutes. There was no intercourse. Both of us are virgins with no prior history of HIV. How much risk is there?

Hi. I seriously need help right now. I was diagnosed with Periodontal disease (Gum Problem) and from that moment i stopped doing Blowjob to someone without condom. However there are times when i kissed a guy but normally its just smooching (without tongue, normally its lip to lip but on a numerous level). I have experience a lot of oral sex wherein i am the insertive partner, if sometimes i do blowjob i make sure they are wearing condom. I never do anal fun (NEVER) because i am very much aware that it has a high risk of acquring the virus. even with condom because i normally get paranoid very easily.
One day i met this guy from gay app. I had a swollen gums at the back of my molar. I kissed him and again without tongue because i know that i have a swollen gums and i dont know if i have cuts in my mouth. He gave me a blowjob without protection and he just jerked off until finish. I just suck his nipples to also help him cum faster. After awhile he admitted he is HIV positive. And now im slowly dying with fear and anxiety, i couldnt sleep or eat. please help me i need giudance.
1. Do i need testing with this incident?
2. With so many insertive oral sex that i did, did i put my self on risk?
3. Could i get infected with if we only did smooching without tongue? Could my gum disease be a factor even if its just lip to lip on a numerous level?
Please help me.....

I have anal a month before with my friend. He tends to insert his penis in my anal but never inserted. He only rubbed his penis on my opening of anal. Is there any chance of getting infected of HIV
I'm a 28 male who lives in a low risk HIV area.
About a year ago I had a HIV test done (I needed it for surgery) and I was told that the test result was "inconclusive". I didn't know much about HIV and HIV testing at the time and obviously I was worried. After asking a lot of questions the doctor told me that the administered test (ELISA) was reactive to the HIV antibodies and that we needed to do more tests to confirm the result. We took 2 more blood samples and ran 2 more tests (Western Blot and PCR). Fortunately both tests came back negative (no bands present and no proviral DNA was detected) which resulted in a HIV negative status.
One week ago I had another ELISA done along with standard STD tests (STD tests came back negative). This time the result also came back as "reactive" and we had to take more blood samples for Western Blot and PCR (still waiting for the results).
During the year between the tests I only had sex (vaginal, some of it unprotected) with one woman who was my girlfriend at the time and who as far as I know is HIV negative. Our last sexual encounter was 2 months ago.
Is it unheard-of for someone to be "reactive" to 2 separate ELISA tests 2 year apart? If so, and my results comeback again negative (fingers crossed) then what are my options for future testing? As you may imagine this is very stressful for me and for if some reason ELISA is sensitive to my blood are there any other tests that can be used for routine screenings?
I had unprotected sex with someone I later realized was hardcore heroine addict. He had a wristband on at the time telling me an elaborate story. He was actually covering all of his track marks and sores. After realizing this, I borrowed anti viral medication. Y the name of acyclovir. I've been taking 800mg a day for the past week after having intercourse with him. He did not cum inside me, but there could have been pre ejaculation that entered inside me. I also happened to be menstuarating and I am curious if that will have any effect on transmission. I am also curious if the acyclovir will help prevent transmission or is it too late?
