I want to ask you some questions. I was wondering about transmission trought kissing. I know, that it's like a no risk activity, even if there are blood from HIV positive person and just small cuts in mouth of HIV negative person, is that right? Because everywhere you wrote, that HIV needs to be transmited into bloodstream of HIV negative person, so trought some really big cuts, that have HIV negative person and that needs stitches? Or for example after some dentist's surgery, right? Not just trought some small cuts, hardly noticeable? Please, answer to all my questions. Thank you!
Hi, I am deeply concerned about the HIV test that I gave blood for currently. Totally paranoid, can't sleep and symptoms match so perfectly I have given up any hope for negative result. I had a protected vaginal intercourse and an unprotected oral sex from an escort in the middle of august. In the month of September I noticed my lipomas increasing on my body. One grew on jawbone so I got it checked by a doctor and he suggested that was not lipoma but mostly swollen lymph node as it decreased in size as well that was early october (7 weeks). Then I got rash on my back like 2 cms which soothes when I apply cream. On middle of october I got annual blood word done and also took flu shot and tdap vaccine. I got very tired that weak, extreme fatigue. Met doctor again and she suggested wait a week if symptoms improve. It did not I got an ultrasound done end of october , it noticed enlarged liver but nothing else. first week of november (11 weeks), doctor suggested I take hiv test as symptoms are very similar to hiv, I am not waiting for results but completely losing my mind over being positive. More read online about symptoms mine match with most of them. I get joint pains, sometimes shortness of breath. I am not sure about escort's status but I am very much afraid whether I caught anything and gave it to my wife in september when there were no symptoms and since I had protected sex I did not even think about catching it. Of course I am waiting for my test results which it seems would take a week as they do both elisa and western blot, but I would like to know your opinion about my situation.
I had a risky exposure with a commercial sex worker on Aug 6th 2018.I had protected Vaginal sex but i licked her vagina with a lotion this was unprotected.Afterwards washed my eyes in the bathroom .My eyes became red still experience eye pain even now. I had night sweats,body warmness,fever 97-99 and rashes now there are present under my left arm near my back.
Performed hiv elisa p24 antigen and antibodies test after 12 weeks at 86 days. Result is negative.But still experience the symptoms cold,cough which persist daily. Thinking of hiv everyday are my results Conclusive.Also did hiv 1 pcr rna qualitative on 76 th day which was negative less than 35 copies.
Should I consider test if I were mugged by few guys and I get injury? My hand was covered with blood, I didn't see any blood from attacker, but due to fact that my hand was bleeding, I did not recognise if whole this blood was mine or could be mixed with someone else blood.
Should I be tested if I did not saw any large amount of others blood?
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.
Hello, first of all thank you for your help
I'm having a really bad time and I'm getting courage to test today afternoon
About five months ago I met a social worker on the street and had sex with her. The condom broke two times but was replaced the moment it happened. This was the possible exposure. I'm assuming she is possitive.
Now, after going to a field trip with friends, we got our legs bitten by insects (a lot). The thing is, my reaction is a lot worse than them. I got a lot of red bites across my legs (real red) my friends are not irritated like me.
Also, there's some white at the end of my tongue and my nose is red and irritated on the sides
As I have read before, condoms are only 80% to 98% effective in HIV prevention. I have read too that the probability of failure is directly related to "wrong usage of condoms", but what does that mean? can I translate that statement to: "If the condom is used in the correct use date (expire date), it doesn't break or slip, am I fully covered (100%)? and how can I be sure that any of the previous affirmations did´t happened during sex (Break or slip, expire date is obvious)? I Mean, If i fill them with water after sex and can´t see any water leakage means that the condom was 100% ok? and does the condom have to slip all the way out or just a little to consider it have failed?. In a few words, If the condom wasn't expired, if I used before any contact (oral, vaginal or anal), used different condoms for oral and vaginal (same brand, was equally careful with both) used enough lube, it remained around the 90% of my penis the whole time (when I took my penis out it slipped but just a bit, like 1 cm) and after sex I filled the condom with water to verify that it didn't break (and it didn't), the posibility to cath HIV is 0%?
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.....
I had sex for the first time and the guy used a condom and sucked my breasts then I found out that he might have AIDS so is there a chance of me getting it?
Sir , I had sex with one female ( unknown status of HIV) 9 days ago , unprotected oral sex by me lending penis and she giving mouth i.e. penile mouth oral sex ...I am HIV -..... did not ejaculate ( she appeared not to have any mouth sores, also when kissed , I could not taste any blood or any bad breath or any abnormality /abrasion - but I am not 100% confident about gum disease, if any she had).. we kissed not very deep and not dry either for 10-12 seconds max....
Then I had fully protected vaginal sex and the condom being fully intact ( I am sure as I have checked it two times during the activity and also checked by putting it under tap water - it did not leaked ) hence I am fully confirm to have it intact....no ejaculation and ejected the penis while more or less straight... No condom sleep off ....
Now she had no lesions/rashes on her entire body / skin / face/ mouth ....appeared hyegenic...
But now I am freaking out for the fear of HIV....
How about my chances of contracting it ....?
Please reply to it...
I am very anxious....
