I am male, 25 years old, foolishly had unprotected sex with a sex worker 6 weeks back. She probably was 28-35 years old. The whole sexual encounter lasted around 40 mins and it was mostly kissing and oral (fellitio) but for around 25-30 seconds I inserted my penis in her vagina. The moment I realized it, I took it out. Later, I ejaculated in her mouth.
21st day after the encounter - I had a small cut in my tongue out of nowhere and it was healed within the day
On the 22nd-28th day - red bumps with white center pop-ed up in several places of my body (none were in the genital or oral area though) but, except one, those too went away within the day. The exceptional one pop-ed up near my right ear and took around 3-4 days to heal, it was slightly bigger than the others and left its mark there after it was healed. None of these were painful or caused itchy or burning sensation before appearing.
On 37th day, I had horrible toothache in the back of my mouth by my wisdom teeth (which are still in my mouth) and stayed around 2 days
Today (42nd day after possible exposure) I spotted two white spots on the gum of my front teeth (not itchy or painful), which might or might not have been there before (I am a chain smoker).
On my 30th day, I consulted with a doctor, he examined and suggested me to run some tests (CBC, HBSAg, AntiHCV, HSV-1/2 IgG and HSV1) and prescribed some medicine. All my test came negative except HSV-1/2 IgG test. The result of IgM test came back negative but the result of HSV-1/2 IgG (not specific) was 17.40. My doctor said I had it for quite some time, probably since my childhood, and if I never experienced any outbreaks ever then there is a possibility that I would never experience any for the rest of my life.
Would be really grateful if you please could answer my questions:
1. Can those be the symptoms of any of the Herpes from the recent exposure?
2. Though my doctor said the result of my IgM test is negative, 0.68 gm/l (reference range 0.4-2.4 gm/l) but can anyone tell me is it really negative or in un-determine stage? or is it possible that I get Herpes from my recent incident?
4. Should I get re-tested for Herpes again at the 60th day (2 month after the sexual encounter) or is the result I got from my last test conclusive?
5. I read from other posts here that the risk of HIV is negligible through oral sex but just to be assure is it possible for me to get HIV in my case (given I probably have weak gum or the issue of that wisdom teeth)?
Thank you for taking the time to read it. I would be grateful to you if you suggest me some advice and clear up my confusion by answering my question. Pardon me for my terrible English and unorganized presentation. Thank you.
Thanks in advance for replying and helping,
I had 3 times unprotected sex with the same person who is HIV positive. First time was hardly 2 seconds, 2nd time was 30 seconds or so and 3rd time for 15 mins approx, all on different days. When I first met her she told me that she has lost lot of weight with natural medicines. After our last meet I was terrified and things started to pop up in my mind that loosing weight could be because of HIV and the way she has sex with me looks she is a sex addict and must be doing the same with everyone out there. So I then secretly consulted other girls around the same place, who than informed me that she is mad about sex and people have reported she even drinks sperm and offers free sex to people who comes for massage, also got to know that she was very obese initially and had lost weight tremendously.
After being terrified with these news I went back to her this time with a condom, and went as if a regular sex meet. Before starting I told her about my anxiety since past few weeks and my worries, but she clearly refused to be HIV positive and saw a complete new side of her by the way she then talked and reacted as if I asked her what she's got. After that I returned home and couldn't get sleep in the night thinking about my wife, and also couldn't make any physical relationship with her. On the 19th day of last exposure without condom, I went ahead and took an early test of PCR RNA and p24 antibidy, but the lab said it will take 4-5 days for the result. So I went to another lab and tested myself with ELISA which looked like a pregnancy tester strip and the lab put my blood on it and said it is negative. I am now sure that preexposure with her I was not infected. But right now, as there is 3-4 days more to go for the results of PCR RNA and p24 test I am dying with guilt and anxiety. I am restless, I need help to find how are my chances against the odds. And what else would cause here severe weightloss? If HIV, then what stage would it have been? I am dying with questions.
PS: a lesson learned that will never ever do it without a condom, never ever.
Dear Sir or Madam
I'm 29 and homosexual and circumcised. Last 13th May 2016 I had experienced unprotected sex with male partner. I had two times intercourse with this partner and the first time (at night) I used condom and gel correctly but in second time (at early morning) I had intercourse again and I used lubricant and condom at initial stage, then I removed condom at middle stage and I think after just 5 minutes I made ejaculation. One month later after happening it, I've known that my partner is HIV positive. So, I went to clinic and tested HIV with ELISA Test at 6 weeks (41 days) exactly. Fortunately, my result was negative but I can't happy till now and I'm worrying about HIV. Can I transmit HIV by only one time anal sex and my testing with HIV result after 6 weeks can reliable. What can I do for my so much and continuous concern? Please give me your opinion upon my event.
Thank you so much for your help.
One week back I had vaginal sex with a CSW .
1. She was on top of me and my penis was totally limp and she had put a condom on it. There were hardly 4-5 strokes for a minute
( I wonder if my totally limp penis would have gone inside her, it was not in a condition to penetrate vagina but since she came on top then there would not have been any way for it to go).
After 4-5 strokes when I pulled out my penis, I saw that condom was not on it and it was lying aside. I remember 100% that she had put the condom before intercourse. Later on she gave me a handjob where I ejaculated. With respect to following condition please help me out.
1. Is there is any chance of condom slippage or in other words if my penis was in direct touch with her vagina ? What are my chances of contracting HIV. ( Really scared)
2.As far as what I know about that CSW that she was very strict and she didn't allow me to kiss, suck her breasts and was very protective. After sex she told me that condom came out from penis while pulling out and this is a normal thing .
But I am worrying because my penis was totally limp.
Please help me out as I am really freaking out. What are my chances of contracting HIV in mentioned conditions.
1. I had sex with a sex worker on 15th August 2013. I tested negative for HIV and positive for Hepatitis C 2 months after the incident. My SGOT and SGPT were elevated. I started with Interferon based treatment on 1st of January 2014. It lasted for 24 weeks. I last tested for HIV 73 days after completing HCV treatment (one year and 15 days after the sexual incident). It was negative. . My CD4 counts 25 days after the sexual incident was 854. I tested for cd4 counts 3 other times, they were 454, 421 and 423. The last two cd4 counts were 2 months after the end of Hepatitis C treatment.
2. Second Incident - A male sex worker licked my nipple and slightly bit on them. 2 days after the incident I took Hepatitis B vaccine. 4 days after the injection I had 100 degree Fahrenheit fever for 6 days.There was no other sexual contact with the worker. I did not see any blood on my nipple, there was no cut either.
I did not test for HIV after this incident, assuming it was not a risk situation.
3. 2016 June. I have protected vaginal sex with a girl. She gave me a blowjob, precum came in her mouth. There was no ejaculation of semen. 15 days after the incident , she had fever and sore throat that lasted for 3 days. Then 1 motnh after the incident she had extreme gas and bloating. She has been hospitalized for the last 4 days and has been diagnosed with colitis. She is unable to eat and is vomiting.
4. Now, I am very afraid. I have read on your site that Hepatitis C treatment can delay antibody production for HIV. My last HIV test was 73 days after completion of HCV treatment and one year and 15 days after the first sexual contact. The HCV treatment had started 4.5 months after the sexual contact. Can I conclude from this that I did not acquire HIV from the first incident?
5. I did nit test after the 2nd incident because I thought it did not carry any risk.
6. My third sexual exposure, considering her severe symptoms, I am worried that I gave HIV to her. Help. I am feeling very guilty and lost.
7. Am I infected with HIV or not?
First of all, thank you for your concerns and interests on this question.
I'd like to ask all of you several questions about HIV symptoms.
I took 4th duo test at 6 weeks after unprotected vaginal intercourse, and test result was negative. Additionally, I took RT-PCR at 3 weeks and it was also negative.
But such symptoms as one lymph node swollen on my front neck with sore throat and muscle pain around armpit have started from 4 weeks, until now. Fortunately, I have no fever and rash.
I believe that my duo test is almost conclusive for HIV-1, but have some doubt for HIV-2. My questions are as follows ;
(1) Is there any possibility of HIV-2 related to my symptoms?
(2) Is Lymph node swollen symptoms occurred mostly like persistent generalized?
(3) How much can I believe my HIV-2 negative result for my duo test?, I don't think that I can not believe 100% for HIV-2 at 6 weeks test negative result.
Your sincere opinion would be valuable for me. Thanks in advance.
I had a very unpleasant situation. I had sex with a girl and my condom broke, after that I noticed that she had also a period. I took a shower after ~15 minutes when I went home, but I'm really scared to death. Of course I will do HIV test but do you know what is the probability of HIV transmission with that risk factor like menstruation.
I've read about probability for insertive vaginal and anal sex. And as I roughly estimated - it would be something about 2% (?) chance or even lower with a single exposure of positive woman. But it's only a guess.
I've asked because when I compare probability of transmission with the overall number of estimated infected people in my country (~40000) and the population (40 mln) the overall hiv transmission of that exposure would be something about 1 over 50000.
Thanks for help :)
i have my right elbow pain its pain in a gap of 2 - 2 min and swollen gland and had vomiting and tierdness and some other symptoms.
i had a sex with one unknown girl with condom but condom broked..after 2 weaks i fell my glands slowwen and had night sweats and right elbow pain ..i was free and dint notice for symtoms of hiv .. and had sex back after 1 month to another girl and same case to first girl the condom broked at that time also i am feeling some symtoms and i din't noticed and had again sex with 3rd girl after one week and condom broked i have all symptoms i had sex first girl on 2016/may 14 and i tested hiv after 60 days it shows negative i am scared please help.. on the last girl Exposure was two weeks comparing to first girl..
So I met this girl on OK cupid and we hit it off right away. We had unprotected sex the second time we hung out. I had said, I don't have condoms, to which she replied "don't worry, I'm on birth control." We had unprotected sex for the past three weeks (probably 4-5 times), and she's given me head as well on every occasion we saw each other. This past week, I've been having a sore throat, but no fevers or anything like that. I went to the doctor, and they said it wasnt strep. The sore throat isn't going away. I'm afraid it's acute HIV syndrome. What is the likelihood of me acquiring HIV from my behavior. And, how do I discuss this with her, im terms of wearing protection, and / or asking her whether she's been tested? I don't wanna come off rude and scare her off, because im paranoid. Thanks for the help
I am ian from kenya, kindly tell me posibilities of my results.
I hard unprotected sex with a lady only to come and realize that she is hiv positive the next day, i took pep after 48hrs but i only took it for 2 days and stoped . I later did a hiv test after 74 days of exposure bt it was hiv negative i dont know how to clasify that type of test but what i know it tests for antibodies, its a strip that has 2 parts diveded by a bold blue colour, you put blood then add bufer and then you wait for results after 5 min. I was told by my doctor that the posibilities that my status will change is very slim. Should i still be woried or not. I have never experienced any signs and symptoms like fever, weight loss, swelling nodes, reshes or anything else, it only that i have had a headache for a day since i did my last test, in any case i have still had sex with my wife and my wife alone, for her i am sure she is hiv negative, she took the same test yesterday and she is negative , and now that she is still negative i am also negative too because i understand she can have accurate results after 4 to five weeks, she tested on her 5th week after exposure
