Hey,i heard protected sex with a lady who is hiv+,it took less than 2mins,i know she is hiv+ because she is a friend of mine..now my qestion is,
1)can i get infected in this case,because i put 2 condoms,they didnt break or slip..?
2)I heard that condom is 70% protective,so is condom a no risk or low risk,?
3)is putting two condoms put me at risk,dont forget i checked them after use they are ok,no leakage no breakage..?
4)did i put myself at risk because condom is not 99% protective,shud i consider testing,or shud i go for peep,because its less than 72hrs,..?
Before this case i tested several tests last yr from august-december and they are all negative,so am sure am not living with hiv,unless you let me know now in this kind of case....
I came across this site and id like to say thankyou for all the help you provide for people with concerns/worries about hiv.
Im a male who is sexually active. I test regularly at least once or twice per year. I do not engage in unprotected vaginal or anal sex (though i have recieved oral and given oral without).
I have a couple of concerns which i daresay are more anxiety/paranoia in origin, but if you could help it would be fantastic.
1) Condom breaks are designed to open wide, seeing my semen in the tip is a good indication that there was no failure and safe sex was achieved, correct?
2) If the woman uses her saliva to masturbate me, is this also no risk even if it were to get in my urethra?
3) After intercourse if the condom accidently rubs some vaginal fluids on the penis tip/hole whilst being taken off is this a concern?
4) The same tissue being used to clean genital secrections off my penis is this a need to worry?
5) After intercourse, sharing the shower (used prior by other clients) with the lady and having her wash both our privates is of no concern?
6) Having recent cuts, blisters or burst/cut blisters on the foot, heel or ankles a risk in using the shower? (what with wet floors and secretions being washed off)
7) Im in a country where DUO testing is available. At 6-8 weeks post exposure is this a reassuring result? Or is 12 weeks the only result to be reassured with?
8) Should i test after recieving unprotected oral and performing cunninlingus? I have read that the infectous fluids of a vagina are located up near the cervix.
Thankyou for any help/advice you can offer (and sorry for the 21 questions! I just wanted to post ALL my concerns rather than keep pestering you all).
So I have to say that these past 3 months have been some of the hardest for me.
I can't tell if I've developed a severe health anxiety or if my symptoms are a sign of seroconversion. I can't remember the last time I didn't cry myself to sleep thinking of how long I have to live.
It's been 2.5 months since I performed oral (and unfortunately some swallowed ejaculate) on a male who I had known for about a month or so. He promised (HA what a joke) that he regularly gets tested and I bought it, but after our first and only sexual encounter he cut me off completely so I figure that was a lie.
Long story short, for the past 9 weeks I've been experiencing illness (ranging from pressure behind the eyes, rashes, fatigue etc) since the occurrence (I began experiencing symptoms 2 days after exposure - diagnosed with strep throat given to me by the "gentleman" who I believe infected me with HIV as well, then it escalated very quickly from there on out)...
I am only 20 years old (still a virgin, guess it will stay that way forever now)... I am in university and used to be a vibrant person. Now I don't go out anymore, I sleep often, use anxiety networks for help and just wait around. I'm withdrawing from my courses next week as I can't even focus that much in school because I've lost my drive for it completely. Here and there I try to be a normal 20 yr old, go out for my friends bdays etc but it's to a point where even doing something like kissing someone scares me, the past 2 guys (who I once dated, and saw this month the 2 nights I went out) have tried to touch me and I freak out b/c I don't want to have any sexual contact bc I think I will have given them HIV.
I know that we don't go off of symptoms for HIV (as it mimics so many other illnesses) but I've never been this ill, I doubt it's all a coincidence seeing as how I've never experienced anything like this and it happened in sync after engaging in oral activity. Stupid call on my end and now I guess I will pay for it until the virus decides it's done with my system.
Pardon my rant.
I was just wondering if I could go for a rapid on Thursday (basically 10 weeks at exposure) to confirm or should I wait until Feb 14th (great Valentine's Day gift to myself...) the 12 week mark to get my results and let my mom know?
Hello there, thank you in advance for reviewing my post and answer my question(s).
On Dec 10th, 2013 I had protected vaginal sex with a csw. I don't believe the condom tore, but I really did not notice. I did not finish, therefore could not check if any fluids leaked out.
Of course, like the classic stories of this forum I started developing 'symptoms' a week or two later.
Anyway, long story short. I got tested on the following days:
Jan 4th (25 days post exposure) - Standard lab hiv test 3rd gen + STI tests - Negative
Jan 16th (38 days post exposure) - Rapid Test - Negative
How are my odds looking here? Do I need further tests?
Due to the below explanation
" after i had a protected sex with a casual hookup buddy, some minutes after we had sex, i began to have a sensational feeling of a very faint tingling in my penis and the second day the tingling persists mostly around my postrate accompanied with a pepperis feeling in my penis and sometimes on the tip of my penis with a faint pain in my left groin but no discharge whatso ever. i have been treating myself with erythromicin hoping it will work because i dont have the money to visit a doctor and more so i dont want my parents to know. pls i need assiatance on what am going through"
I wasnt sure may be there was condom breakage during the intercourse and I did not even know how to determine if it does neither did I try to check when I was done because I was avoiding to touch it so I wont come in contact with the lady's fluid...but the symptoms still persist up till now
My question is that will an std swab kit usually used for the vagina work if I swab my throat? I did this at my doctors because they refused to give me an oral std check becauseit's not as likely. I was desperate because I think I've had it for a long time and I recently gave orAl sex to a man and am afraid of catching hiv. Especially due to the possible infection in my throat. He did not ejaculate and I do not think i let the tip of his penis touch any where in my mouth and I used a lot of spit. Im just afraid of the off chance some had gotten un my mouth that I am now infected with hiv.
I am waiting for my results for the throat swab I did but I am sure it woll be false results because it was a swab typically used to test vaginal fluids instead of oral.
What do you think my chances are and would my results be valid st sll?
Good day, am so worried with my present health situation after i had a protected sex with a casual hookup buddy, some minutes after we had sex, i began to have a sensational feeling of a very faint tingling in my penis and the second day the tingling persists mostly around my postrate accompanied with a pepperis feeling in my penis and sometimes on the tip of my penis with a faint pain in my left groin but no discharge whatso ever. i have been treating myself with erythromicin hoping it will work because i dont have the money to visit a doctor and more so i dont want my parents to know. pls i need assiatance on what am going through
3 days ago I had a unprotected oral sex and protected virginal sex with commercial sex worker.
I worried I get infected with hiv, should I go for hiv test? I'm stay in malaysia
Had sex with a new girl for only 2min. She for some reason stopped it...not sure why. Anyways I had a condom on. What risk am I at ? Also, she have me oral sex while I had a Condom on before the intercourse.
Thanks for your great work continuously!
Recently we went out with my friend and he was holding my baby daughter's hand while walking. Suddenly he found that he got a cut of around 1cm on his finger and it was gushing some blood. He didn't know how he got cut as it was not painful. Seconds later we found that our baby daughter's hand got some of the blood on it as he was holding her hand. We checked and we didn't see any big cuts or wound on baby's hand. However while we were looking for wet tissue to clean her little hand she sucked her finger and not sure if she got in touch with the blood into her mouth.
Can HIV be transmitted this way, like touching some blood or possibly into the mouth?
Any testing needed?
Thanks for your answer!
