Low Risk

Please help. Worried my bad relationship will end with another nightmare for me.

Hey, so I just found out my boyfriend of almost 2 months had been cheating and having multiple partners during our relationship, as well as most likely never been tested throughout his life.
About a week and a half after we began becoming sexual (that is, me giving him oral with ejaculate in my mouth, and dry humping- penis on vulva contact but no penetration.) I developed a really bad cold that I just couldn't shake. I had a 102 fever, sore throat, and stuffy nose for about a week. I felt fine after, but a month later I still can't shake a stuffy nose and possibly swollen lymph nodes and cant figure out if it's allergies or not .

Bottom line is, I am very worried that I may have contacted HIV through our activities and these are symptoms of that. Please Advise.

Please help !!!

If a guy had the HIV virus and a woman drinked his sperm and accidentally swallowed it , will she gets the virus too and what if it was a guy you know "gay sex" .
( also what if a brother and a sister had sex but none of them had the HIV virus will they get the virus ) ??! .

HIV Transition through Oral Sex

Hi, I'm HIV positive and a few weeks ago, my girlfriend gave me a blowjob without a condom. I'm pretty worried now because a few weeks after that she began to have a headache and now her stomach hurts, she's throwing up and she also has diarrhea. So far, from what I hear its pretty intense. I don't know all the symptoms of getting HIV, from what I googled it seems kind of scary. She's all the way in Kelowna so I can't check up on her, but I don't know what to do. Could she have HIV?

Does Love bites (reddish purplish spots) infect somebody ?

I am not working these days, stays at home and have these thoughts about Hiv tests again and again.
thinking about their accuracy and all.
my OCD and anxiety is threatening me.

"The people at the counselling and testing centre in new Delhi. Have no idea about the four factors which affects the test result or window period. They said its nothing like that".

Are my results conclusive.
Please Tell me

Unprotected Oral Sex, Elisa Combo and PCR

Hi all
first of all I've to say this helpline is very useful and well done too.
Let's move straighforward to the point. I'm in a homosexual relationship since 3 years but in May we decided both to have one experience each with other guys, always protected insertive sex and both did unprotected oral sex without ejaculation in the mouth and without any sort of contact with blood.
Doing some math
My Boyfriend took an Elisa 4th generation (antibodies + p24) test 35 days after the "possible" exposure with the unprotected oral sex he had, results negative (no reactive).
I took a PCR RNA test after 15 days from the last exposure combined with a Elisa 4th generation test resulting "undetectable , less then 37 copies/ml " and not reactive to the antibody + p24 test.

I know PCR RNA is not a diagnosing tool (but my doctor prescribed me because he found me very anxious) because of high cost, technical problem and high rate of false positive but that actually is a high sensitivity test (so very few false negative results). What I am wondering now is
1) does my boyfriend can take his results as conclusive ?
2) can i take mine as conclusive ?

Now we are 6 (my boyfriend) and 4 (me) weeks after the last possible exposure and we do not have any syntomphs.
Thanks for all !

Potential HIV+ semen on towel + other sex acts

Hey, I came here to just get an opinion on what I should do. So earlier today (About 3 PM EST), I hooked up with a guy (I'm gay), I didn't know too much about him, but I did so anyway. I know, definitely horrible judgement on my part. There was no anal, but we did do some other stuff. We jerked each other off, he did suck my dick, we frotted (rubbing our dicks together, tip of our penises didn't touch though), and I rimmed his ass a little bit. Just some small kisses to his cheeks and hole, I didn't stick my tongue in his ass though.

Also, he came on my chest. So he wiped off with a towel. Then like 3 mins later, after dry humping his butt (tip didn't touch his butt), I came on his back. We wipe off with the same towel. The only thing is... that towel touched the tip of my penis. I'm not sure if it was the side with the cum on it or not. And I know nothing about this guy, I don't know his status and what not. We didn't do anything too crazy, but I'm still just worried and am wondering if I should go on PEP. So far it's been 8 hours since this all took place, so I would really appreciate a response back soon. Thank you all. Sorry if this post is too messy, and sorry if this has already been asked. I just wanted a clear opinion from you guys, about all the stuff I did.

Also, here's a re-cap of what I did in case you're confused:
-We were kissing
-We both rubbed each other's dicks
-He sucked my dick
-I rimmed his ass (no tongue)
-We frotted (tips of penis didn't touch)
-I dry humped his butt (tip didn't touch his hole)
-His cum was on a towel for 3 mins before it touched mine

Cunilingus Risk

Hello! I'm a man and I had a sex with a girl, but the vaginal sex was protected so I hope there is no risk. What I'm mostly worried about is the oral sex. I was performing cunilingus and I'm worried about the risk of HIV transmission this way. Is it a high risk, should I be worried?

HIV through broken phone screen

Hi All,

First of all i wanna thank you for your assitance answering all the questions.

Last week i went to a bar i was talking to an escort who took my phone and saved her number. The problem is that i used my phone directly after i took it from her and my phone has a broken screen. I have been using it for 2 months and i did get any injury. Assuming that she injured herself by the broken screen and when i used it after her i had some scratches. Does this put me into risk as i didnt see coz it was very dark inside the bar.

Furthermore, when we went home she took shower and i only had tit fuck with her i was wearing a condom ut at the end i realized that the condom was removed. I did not have any sort of anal vaginal oral sex with her. It was only tit fuck.

does the above 2 incidents put me into risk?

Appreciate your assistance.

Careless and reckless mistake

I made a mistake and got very very drunk with some friends who, at the end of the night, paid for all of us to get rooms and prostitutes. My friends told me I could do whatever I want but just don't "put it in". So I was able to control myself a bit,... When she arrived, we both took a shower and cleaned ourselves well. After drying off, I sucked on her breasts for a while, then I put on a condom and she gave me a protected blow job. She then crawled up a bit and was about to put my penis into her vagina when I asked her not to. She grabbed my penis anyway and rubbed it against her vagina and the head went in a little, the condom was still on and intact from it's appearance. Then she changed position and I played with her vagina with my hands a little, then wiped my hands against the bedsheets, removed the condom, and proceed to finish between her breasts.

I feel like I've read these forums a bit and not sure whether this was any risk or not... ? Needless to say, I feel emotionally guilty as I had swore to never mess with prostitutes, but I was really drunk and my friends paid for it and I did not want to disappoint them...


Thanks for your support

I had an anonymous and a little itchy minor skin rash that came a few days after I had different protected sexual encounters with someone whose HIV status is unknown to me but got romours later from people she is well known to that she is HIV+. This rush went away a after 3-4 days when i applied a cream given to me by my doctor. We also engaged in unprotected oral sex where she had leaked my pen**s for some minutes (BJ) and we deeply kissed. I asked her later to go for HIV test and she was hesitant, something which made me some how believe the romours. I mmediately did determine test en tested -ve, i did it again after 40 days of my last encounter with her en tested -ve, I am yet to do another one at 60 days and 90 days but i am so scared and worried that she could have infected me. wat could have been the cause of the minor rush and for it to have come around this period after sexual encounters ??? is there any other test i can do apart from determine and PCR before 90 days??, please advise me, but i will never be this stupid again if i survive this tragedy,, YK from Uganda
