I have a bit of anxiety and really need to know what my odds are. I have been doing everything in my life to ensure I maintain my status negative so here are the details
I started prep on the 18th of March 2019 and I had sex with someone that was HIV positive undetectable on the 30th of March 2019. I know he is Undetectable because he was kind enough to take the effort in showing me his most recent results that were on 19th Of march 2019 he showed me the medication he takes and he confessed to me that he had been positive for 6 years and that he has mainted a viral load less than 20 copies. I am also on prep and have taken it the same time every day up to this point I even took an extra one after I found all this out. Yesterday. I was the top and sex wasn't out of the Norm and I am certain of his undetectable status and saw the medication that he takes. He even sent me a copy of those results from the lab. What is my level of risk? If someone whom is hiv positive undetectable with a viral load of less than 20 copies, has unprotected anal sex with someone who is HIV negative and has been taking prep for 2 weeks?
Please help me ease my anxiety, I refrained from treating him badly because he is a kind person and plus he looks really healthy! not only did he show me the proof but it is evident from how he looks! I would defiantly consider taking things farther with him but I need the facts and the education of what my risk will be even under these; what I consider, to be optimal circumstances. where he and I have open communication and he is being forthcoming and honest.
Do these factors put me at risk for getting HIV?
I had sexual intercourse with sex worker which I think might be HIV positive, We had vaginal intercourse with condom but my concern is that I had made cut on the base of the penis just one and half hour before the sex which bled for half a minute and then stopped bleeding.During the vaginal intercourse this cut was not covered by the condom and was exposed to the vaginal fluid.
What is the risk of transmission through this non bleeding cut???
Symptoms that I am experiencing are:
On the second day of the sex I had a high fever along with slight headache and chronic fatigue which lasted for one and half week. On the beginning of the second week I am suffering from white tongue and slight sore throat along with mouth ulcers but no other symptoms except tiredness.I am feeling thirsty more than usual and moreover I wake up at night to drink water due to thirst.I am feeling really stressed and anxious.
Do my symptom are related to HIV.
I had unprotected sex. a one time thing. i was given PEP within 72 hours. I took a determine HIV antibody test 1 month after completing PEP and it was non-reactive. I did another determine HIV antibody test 7 weeks after completing pep (11 weeks after exposure) and it was still negative.
Can the negative results change after 12 months post PEP since i have read that PEP delays seroconversion?
Today I met a guy online and we agreed we would meet for sex (I'm also male) Even before meeting, I inisted that we would be using condoms. At some point, after we touched and kissed, he sat on me, and rubbed my penis between his buttcheeks. I told him again, if he wanted to go ahead, that we would need a condom. He told me he was just teasing, and that there would be no actual penetration. Yet at some point I did feel my penis head stretching his anus, maybe even penetrating him with just the head, I can't be sure. I asked him to stop immediately and he did.
Later on, he was moving his penis near my anus, he was saying again : "I'm just teasing, I'm not penetrating". Yet at some point I definitely felt his penis head stretching my anus. That's when I said : "Ok, this is too much, either put on a condom or go". He finally put on the condom.
I'd like to know what risk there is for HIV transmission in these circumstances. I'd also like to know if such an exposure would warrant PEP.
Also, as a side note, I would like to mention how I'm sick and tired that even though I am always extremely clear about wanting to have protected sex, guys often seem to try, at some point, either to penetrate me without a condom or have me penetrate them without a condom. It's like the pressure of minimizing transmission risks always fall on my shoulders only, and I have to be careful not to have too much fun, because I need to stay alert in case the guy I'm with tries doing something to me without protection. I find this to be an utter lack of respect.
Thank you for your time.
I had sex with someone on Dec 20 and the condom broke in between. I only realized after finishing. I started PEP in less than 48 hours and took it for 30 days. I tested at 42 days after exposure (11 days after PEP completion) the test was negative. The test I used was HIV CMIA (p24 and Antibody). I took another test (HIV CMIA serum) at 60 days after exposure (29 days after PEP completion) which was also negative
My question is this:
1. Are these test results encouraging?
2. I am planning to take another test at 42 days after PEP completion (74 days after exposure). Have you ever seen post pep test at 28 days turn positive in the future?
I have read on the Internet that HIV 4th gen test are conclusive at 6 weeks by expert. So if my test at 74 days (10 weeks and 4 days after exposure or 42 days after PEP completion) is negative. Can I consider this conclusive?
Twenty days back i had a sex with a sex worker and suddenly during starting of intercourse the condom was broken and she noticed it and stopped me there and guided me to finish by hand and now i'm over thing about contracting Hiv .please tell me what are the chances of contracting hiv through single vaginal encounter assuming she is hiv positive
I had unprotected sex with a girl i met but i went for HIV testing with her after sex and we were both negative. Even though we were both negative i took PEP. i also believed her when she told me she last had sex months before that and it was safe sex because she did not hesitate to go for HIV testing. after PEP i took an HIV test 9 days after PEP and it was negative. My worry is that is it possible for the results to change since the guidlines say its suppose to be 3 weeks, 6 weeks and 3 months after PEP? if PEP did not work can the results show positive immediately after PEP? Am really getting worried. please help
i am sick and worried because i have developed some flu and throat infection and was given some antibiotic. later on i developed some fungal infection in the mouth and i read somewhere and it said its an early symptom of HIV. i don't know if its because of antibiotics or not. i contacted that girl again so that we go for HIV testing and we agreed that i pay her if she is negative since am troubling her which also gives me comfort because she is sure she is still negative. what can be the cause of my infection? am i sick?
I was on the bottom and other guy was playing and rubbing his penis on my anus, my anus was lubed with spit and had lot of his pre-cum around my anus. I am extremely worried about this incident, we stopped immediately after him inserting his penis tip into me twice.
Please let me know what should i do ? PEP warranted ?
He said he is safe HIV neg. but i don't if i should trust.
extremely worried, please help! Thanks
I have unprotected vaginal intercourse with a sex worker. I am very regret on what i did and after 62 hours i am on the PEP medication. Throughout the PEP medication, i am having the side effects like nausea & dizziness almost everyday until now (24th post exposure). I have taken a 4th generation HIV combo rapid test with Alere HIV combo. The result came out negative. Would the result be accurate enough? I am having serious anxiety and go to different doctors everyday. Please help
Yesterday I had unprotected sex with lady I met in the club, next day I asked her to come with me to do HIV test 4th generation, The her result was negative.
I’m still worried, Do I need to do test after one month?
Thank you for your support and advice.
