i recently got into a relationship with a lady i did not know of her HIV status. we eventually had an vaginal sex (with no condom). i was very worried though she told me not to that she was sure that she is negative. but out of fear, i went to my clinic and i was given PEP treatment at about 40 hrs post exposure.
the relationship continued and we had another sex 6 days after i started PEP. i was not a brief sex at all and i ended up having some injury on my penis as a result of the activity.
I almost discontinued the PEP, but asked her to just do the HIV test, and it came out positive. i was shocked!!!!!
i have not had any rashes, fever, sore throat and all that except jaundice, nausea and severe weakness once i take the drug.
i experienced an unexplained burning sensation,needle like pricks and colicky pain in and on my penis and my scrotum. sometimes i feel like something wants to come out but nothing comes out of my penis. this started about two weeks after exposure. but no discharge nor sore nor rash around my perineum nor inguinal area.
all STI screening i did were negative and i had to take treatment for STI just in case ( this was my decision).
i have completed my pep and got tested again at day 33 post exposure and day 30 on pep and im still negative.
i was placed on LAMIVUDINE AND TENOFOVIR + ATAZANAVIR AND RITONAVIR.
my questions are
1) will my second exposure limit the efficacy of PEP?
2) should i have extended my PEP to 6 more days.?
3) are those symptoms i had possibly due to seroconversion?
4) is my current negative result encouraging?
thanks a lot for your anticipated prompt response. i am honestly scared.
also, i just got an antibody test approximately 2 months post pep and 3 months post exposure. it came negative. i don not know what to make out of this as my symptoms still persist. my palms and sore of my feet are peeling of now. my bones ache and i am tired like my soul is out of my body. i need help please
I am nervous because I had oral sex with a man who was undetected for 30 years but he did not tell me until after it happened. He performed it on my penis and I only did it oral to his anus. We had a heavy make out session and he came on his body, but some of it got on me and I wiped it off with a towel. A week later I have some chest pain and my tongue is white with some bumps on the back of the tongue. Is it too late for prep?! What can I do?
Good day dears,
First of all, let me say that I'm slowly dying since I gave oral sex to another gay guy 3 months ago.
In the meantime, I've been constantly reading and exploring about my possible HIV exposure.
At the moment of the exposure, no blood noticed in my mouth, only odor coming from my wisdom crowns. I have crowns all aroung the mouth, excluding the front teeth (up and down).
I may have gingivitis, which isn't something blood-related, only one spot of gingiva looks reddish.
Okay, I don't know what to say, since I'm so anxious I can't breath. I want to go get tested but I'm so scared, since I experienced sore throat with no fever (maybe 37.2 Celsius one day) but I was constantly feeling hot, thinking this is ARS related. I was so scared, searching for symptoms and maybe anxiety made them show up.
There was not ejaculation in my mouth, but there must have been pre-ejaculation...
I'm constantly reading your forum and I must say that you all are giving a lot of good informations, this is a perfect place to ask! Thank YOU all !
So... Is gingivitis considered an open wound? Gingiva bleeding but not too much? Or what are you talking about is a big, open, gaping wound inside the mouth for a chance of transmition? I'm confused, scared to death. I can't sleep, eat, talk... My life became a big, deep, dark hole.
Okay diving into the main part i had a unprotected sex with a girl...20 days ago.later i got so worried about hiv so i asked her if she had a past she told she always had protected sex and she told she had sex with a guy 4 days ago prior to me. I was told hiv transmission would be high in acute stage of infection. So my question if she was lying about the protected sex thing. Would she still transmit the virus at higher rate (because it has been just 4 days she might have got the virus) and she was so kind that she got herself tested (cmia methord which dignoses both ag and ab) on 19th day after she had sex with the other guy and result was negative i have done my dna proviral after 14 days of exposure and the result came negative .
13 days ago I had a sexual intercourse (vaginal) with a sex worker lady. She sat on on my penis about 5-10 second and penetrated 2-3 times. Then I immediately pulled out myself and used a condom. 36-hours later I started to feel something like influenza type of symptoms (cough, sneeze, fever etc.). 3-4 days later I also started to feel some numbness on the right side of my body (hand, arm, leg). And finally in last 1 week I have been feeling some surfing & hopping pains at my joints. Based on this given explaination how would you evaluate the risk of being infected with HIV for me? Can these symptoms be the probable signs of HIV at my body? Thanks for your time & support in advance. Regards.
I had a high-risk exposure in which the condom was disrupted in vaginal sex. The girl that I related was at the end of menstruation, I happen to have seen no visible blood on my penis. When I realized that I had broken I took it off and immediately went to wash. After 10 days of the act I began to feel symptoms that until the present date permance. The symptoms were: oral ulcers, rash, pharyngitis, shivering, body aches and pains, lack of appetite, white tongue, fungus on rough nails, peeling of hands and feet. Over the course of three and a half months I've been testing myself with Elisa 4th G and PCR-RNA at 30, 60 and 80 days, all of these negatives. The last test was an Elisa in 15 weeks. Should I still be concerned about HIV, and still have symptoms such as chills and white tongue?
i had un protected sex with a girl before 9 weeks, i dont know she is hiv positive or negative, i lick her vagina more than 20 min with out a condom and i don't have any bleeding gum or deep wound or mouth ulcer in that time, and also she suck my cock with a condom, then i fuck her several time using a condom, it mean i did a protected sex, after i fuck i visibly check condom was broken or not, as my visual i seen that condom is not broken, please answer me i m in a lot of tension now, after 9 week or with in this time i did not get any fever or any other swallow lymph node, but some time i have little rash and itching my skin, and little bit sore throat, and i had little red spot in my top of the cock before 2 week now it's also not available, i m in so tension now, because of these some time i m became cray, and lot of headache....please help me.....
HI !! I had unprotected intercourse with a lady i meant in a bar, very stupid mistake. I got tested for all STIs after one month with a 4th generation test, all negative. I then did another two other 4th generation test at 8 and 10 weeks, both negative. I Finally had a 4th generation rapid test at 80 days and an Insti rapid test just over 12 weeks which came back negative too. I am feeling pretty confident about my results but since I have a new partner I want to be certain i am all good. Should I worry about unprotected intercourse with my new partner? should I test again?
Thanks fot your time !!
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?
