Low Risk

transmission through jock itch

Thank you for providing this service. I do have a question and am a bit worried. I had protected sex recently and right after I noticed that I had jock itch (fungal infection) in my groin right next to my scrotum. It was beefy red, inflammed and had some areas of broken skin and what appeared to be small areas of blood. If the woman was HIV+, what is my risk of becoming infected if her vaginal fluid during sex came into contact with my jock itch? Thank you for your help.

HIV RNA Test Reliability at 13-14 Days


I had unprotected oral sex with a person of unknown HIV status about three weeks ago (both giving and receiving). One week after exposure, I had a 4th generation test that came back negative. 13-14 days after exposure I had a HIV 1 RNA, QN PCR test with sensitivity to <20 (copies/mL) that came back Not Detected.

At three weeks, I am now feeling a bit off -- slight fever, body aches, red blotchy palms, some unexplained rashes on my arm.

Can I take any comfort in my HIV RNA test?

Also, I want to get tested again soon (the anxiety is killing me). Should I take a 4th Generation test, or try to take another HIV RNA test?

Unprotected Oral sex

A month ago I performed unprotected oral on this guy that I met online, we did not have anal sex and he didnt cum in my mouth. However, right at 4 weeks, the 28th day,about an hour or 2, after my dinner I started to vomit and had diarrhea(watery tools). I felt better in the morning but then I went to the hospital and got injection. I am fully recovered in about 3 days.
My question is am I at risk of contracting hiv? Are the vomit and diarrhea I experienced were the symptoms?

Acute HIV, fluid contacts

Hello. First, I want to thank you in advance for your help.

Eleven days ago I had a meeting with a shemale sex worker where I was the insertive partner. It was no more than 1 minute of PROTECTED anal sex and I didn't ejaculate inside her, I have finished masturbating myself (with the same condom I have used in anal sex). We used based water lub and latex condom.

I'm sure the condom was intact because I ejaculated on it and my semen was inside.

Four days after sex, my throat started to hurt a bit more (it was already aching a little before sex) and then after two days my ear and head began to ache (the head hurts in the forehead). It also came a ulcer under my tongue.

The sore throat and ear pain stopped in two days, with the use of anti-inflammatory. But now they started again, but now it's the other ear that ache, and came another ulcer under my tongue.

Now I'm afraid it's ARS symptoms.

I would like to know if some of these situations had some risk:

1) The condom slipped a little, but not out of my penis. The head of the penis was always covered. It was a risk?

2) Mouth kiss. I had sore throat and have gingivitis, which sometimes bleeds. Not sure if it was bleeding a little at kiss moment. It was a risk?

3) I finished masturbating myself, but didn't remove the condom to ejaculate. In my hands and fingers had some anal secretion/fluids mixed with water lub (that was on condom). The problem is that I have hangnail active in almost all my hand fingers, which bleed easily when the skin is pulled, could it be a risk?

I was confident that had safe sex until I started to get sick.

Thankyou again.

HIV Risk

I called an escort from backpage, she seems pretty ok, I asked her if she had any STDs inluding HIV and she said no.

Before the actual intercourse she gave me a SKYN condom(Polyisoprene), I put it, I fingered her vagina for some time with my fingers, then I had sex with her only one time, once finished I checked the condom, it was intact and semen inside it.

What are my chances of getting HIV or any other STDs from this encounter.


On may 29 2016 i had a one time protected vaginal sex with prostiture(female) in india(hyderabad).
1. On 19th day i had a pcr rna test,result was negative.

Possible HIV? 07/13/2016

Please help!

I performed oral sex on guy who, without asking, ejaculated in my mouth. A couple days later I had IBS and heat burning sensation in my hands, bottom of my feet, legs and back and some uncolored rashes that comes and goes within a day or two. Not knowing if these symptoms were related to anxiety (me checking my body in the mirror and worrying too much) or if I contracted STD ...at 11 days post "possible" exposure I took Lab Corp HIV RNA Qualitative blood test and come out NEGATIVE. Then, at 32 days post "possible" exposure I took Lab Corp HIV 4th Generation wRfx which also came out NO REACTIVE on on both - P24 & Antibodies, and if my anxiety was not enough at "40" days post "possible" exposure I took another HIV AG/AB, 4TH GEN with Quest laboratory which also came out both as NO-REACTIVE. I stilll feel burning sensation on my hands, legs and body but my doctor says it s nerves due to too my stress. With these tests done - I know everyone says after 12 weeks is conclusive BUT Can I be really sure I don't have HIV virus ?? Is it possible to get p24 gen NO-REACTIVE and Antibodies NO-REACTIVE at the same time after 32 and 40 days post exposure?? Please help

Chance of Getting a HIV virus

Hi sir,

I went to a prostitute on 9th July 2016 at a brothel where a condom is enforced. So I used a condom throughout the whole oral and vaginal sex. There was no anal sex involved. However, I kissed her through mouth to mouth and she gave me a handjob after everything without a condom. I did not touch any part of her body afterwards as I was not with a condom. I did not ejaculate throughout the whole activity as well. But I am still having an anxiety over getting a HIV by any chance. So may I know my chances of getting a HIV whether it is high risk or low and when I can start testing for HIV? Looking forward to your reply.

Please answer. Am I overthinking

Yesterday I had protected sex with 2 girls in German brothel. I had a cut wound on my shaft, towards the base, 2 days ago but still skin not covering the injury. Muscles beneath are visible. As far as I remember, the wound was covered with condom and was not bleeding. Today morning when I saw the wound, it had opened up a little bit and seems fresh again. Am I at the risk of getting STD? Condom was there even for oral sex. Should I go for some HIV tests? Please clear my doubts so that I can sleep peacefully.
