hi two days ago I had an encounter with a woman I rub her vagina with my penis there was vaginal discharge while rubbing my penis the tip of my penis went into the vagina three times for about 2 seconds and now I'm worried is it possible
to get HIV from that encounter
Two days ago I took a rapid test with my friend. We had engaged in anal sex multiple time (around 8 times) in the past one month when I met him. In the multiple encounters, we never used protection. When we took the test, both rapid test produced two lines which we were informed is a positive result. However, the lines were two faint almost invisible. As I didn't believe the result, we headed to another clinic and took another rapid test. This time, my test was negative and my friend was unmistakably positive (The two lines were clearly visible).
Ever since that day, my anxiety has sky-rocketed and I'm having a very high degree of stress. I intend to get a retest but I feel its too early.
Should I take a test immediately and how can I manage my stress levels?
Do you think based on the information above that I am infected? Why did the first test show a faint positive and the second negative result?
One thing I observed from the first test is that the nurse drew a very small blood sample. Could this have affected the result? Again, since I was tested immediately after my friend, is there a way the nurse may have contaminated my rapid test kit?
hi there, I'm a 30 yo Asian male in Cambodia. I am so terrified now that I think I might be exposed to HIV. About 3 weeks ago, I had sex with a prostitute in Cambodia and alcohol was involved. During sex, first she gave me oral sex for awhile and then I put on the condom. After about 10min of having sex, my penis felt uncomfortable and I decided to take off the condom and use a new condom. But before I put on the new condom, I made a huge mistake to let my urethra touched her virgina and her virgina fluid for awhile before putting on new condom and finish the sex. After that, I threw away the condom and I did clean my penis but I dont think I have cleaned it properly till the next morning. In the morning the next day, I realized that the skin layer on my corona of glans and neck of glans was kinda peeled. This really make me worried and scared. I don't know if I can get HIV through the peeled skin.
Currently (3 weeks after the sex), I'm having a bad sore throat, a minor headache, and muscle tightness and aches especially on my left sides of the body. Btw, I have been having sore throat for like 2 weeks now and the muscle tightness/aches is just only for a few days. And also I feel quite tired the last few days. My question is that base on my scenario of the sex, am I at high risk of getting infected with HIV? Please please provide some answer. I'm terrified now.
I had sex with a ladyboy and we were not using condoms. We did blowjobs to each other and had bareback sex where we rotate being the receptive and insertive. Im not sure if she is hiv positive. We didnt cum into each other and always ejaculated out of the body. What are my chances of getting hiv if she was hiv positive?

I only have one simple question about this Rapid HIV Test. I went to the Department of Health and Human Services for testing.
My only and first exposure was long time ago in 2013 unprotected with a girl for less then a minute. Since that incident I never had any potential exposure after that. I learned my lesson and i always use condom.
The test Fingerprick blood and my result was negative. I asked them at the health department what is that type of test we used? The Health manager and coordinator at the Department told me me it is called Alere Determine HIV1/2 Ag/Ab Combo.
I just need your opinion about that test I have undergone, I never heard of it? What do you think about it? Good? Accurate? Reliable? If so, is my test result conclusive? Or should I consider taking different test?
Hi. I am from Pakistan. I do not know where to ask this question. So please try to answer this question if you can.
I had unprotected sex with a 'shemale' (I do not know the proper term). I first had oral sex, then ejaculated in her anus.
She seemed pretty neat, and told me that she never does unprotected sex and was doing with me because I looked neat too. Please help me in this issue, I am really worried.
I am a 16 year old female and 8 weeks ago I has unprotected sex with a male of the same age as a drunken mistake. We had sex twice in one night, the first time we used a condom and the second time we didn't.
For the past 3 days I have suffered from a very mild fever which included;
mild headache, slight muscle pains, pain in the back of eyes when I move them and night sweats. I also had dierrea for the first day and now the fever is almost gone I have noticed my eyes are very very slightly starting to yellow. I hardly ever get fevers so I got worried and searched the symptoms on the internet to see acute HIV cause fever like symptoms which really got me worried. I don't think I have the HIV rash as my rash doesn't look like that because it is on my right chest/shoulder and they are little red spots with some that have puss in them (they do not itch) also the rash flared up while I was abroad in Spain for 2 weeks, a week ago. I got bitten by Mosquitos but I don't think that has anything to do with the fever.
I know I need to get checked out and I will do very soon but just wanted to see what you have to say. Also how long does it take to get infected by HIV after unprotected sex and how long does it usually take acute HIV symptoms to show up after unprotected sex?
