Sharing a drink

I have recently shared a drink with an HIV positive person.
It was very quick and I used a separate straw but it was from her cup.
She is my colleague at work and I always see her use the same cup and she never really washes it.
Would there be more HIV virus in the cup since she never washes it??
Could you please evaluate my risk? Do I need to go for a test?

Thank you very much

Transmission from cellphone

Hello, I was in HIV clinic few weeks ago (probably little paranoid visit), and during the visit I have used my cellphone while waiting in waiting room (stupid decision). My hands were also wet because it was raining that day. After I finished my visit I washed my hands twice, but I forgot to sanitize my cell phone and continue to use it regularly. Am I at risk of contracting HIV because I bite my nails and went to pee one hour after? I have touched the doorknob and pen in clinic before using my phone.

Will I catch HIV if I foreplay with a women?

Hii there,

I went to an erotic massage parlour last week. I was doing foreplay with her. I was only kissing her neck though. But I found few blisters or acne on her. So, I'm afraid anything would happen.

My question is how will I know if I catch some STI's or STD's or HIV for that matter? It has been 5 days since I went there. Please help. Thank you.

Accuracy and Window Period of 4th Generation HIV Screening

i,

I had exposure (mutual masturbation and titsex) with a sex worker two years ago. No oral, vaginal or anal sex took place. Oil was used on my penis and her breasts for lubricating. Half a year later I received a HIV screening (4th gen) along with my physical, which came back non-reactive. Should I retest due to possibility of false negative? I have read that in one case this person seroconvert after 4 years, although with obvious AIDS related symptoms

Can you get infected with HIV through dental equipment?

Dear all,

I went to the dentist a little over 2 weeks ago, and I was terrified of it. I went there and the dental assistant told me that the tools are obtained from an autoclave bag. He told me that there was supposed to be some blue indicator, but later when I saw the bag, I did not see the indicator and it was not blue.
I have been suffering for more than 2 weeks because I am afraid of being infected with HIV. The day I went to the dentist, I actually ended up going to the ER twice because I was so anxious and scared and I started to panic.
I did not have any procedure done on an actual day, the dentist just checked for cavities (up to that point I was fine). However, then she used a dental probe (a long metal tool with a hook) to check my gums, and see if they needed cleaning. My gums ended up bleeding, and that's when I panicked. Especially since I had seemed the mirror she was using (the little dental mirror) had a reddish tint, and the dentist cleaned it. I thought maybe it was just fog, but now that I think about it, I think maybe it could have been blood.
I also got an HIV test on the same day, and of course, it was negative, which I knew it would be. I know any infection would show 3-4 weeks later, so I am scared again because today and yesterday I woke up with an itchy throat and itchy nose like allergies.
I have been obsessively checking my lymph nodes and fever, and I am just scared. How likely is for someone to be infected with HIV at the dentist, and when it was just a checkup and not an invasive procedure.
The only thing that caused bleeding was the dental probe tool the dentist used to check my gums and see if I needed a cleaning.

P.S. The doctors at the ER told me that I did not need PEP because I did not have an exposure and that it was highly unlikely for someone to be infected at the dentist, but that's what bothers me, they told me it is highly unlikely. It should be not likely at all. They told me I have anxiety issues, which is true, is not the first time I have been scared. I had a tonsillectomy last year and I was also scared to death. I was not able to relax until I had a test.

HIV transmission from sharing a pen

URGENT!! HIV transmission risk???

a clinical pathologist who was working on some lab blood tests, was wearing gloves and she signed a paper with a pen, and I -with my uncovered hand & small wound on my middle finger- signed with the same pen... I don't know if there was blood on her gloves or if any of the blood samples she was working had HIV... What to do and what is the risk????!!!

HIV transmission from bodily fluids passing through clothing

Hello,

I am 35 male, i am non-American, incase of mistake in communication apologies.

I am having a hpv genital ward on shaft portion. I recently went to strip club and took a vip. I was wearing only a cotton workout dress, no underwear. The lady was naked and rubbing butt and front of her continues 15 min. I had pre cum, not sure if she passed fluid on me.

My doubts are, if she have hiv or any other std, can it pass through my pants to wart and virus infect me? It was paining when she rubbed as she was very much close to my parts.Not only wart am i at a risk of getting virus infected like this?

HIV transmission from touching or kissing?

I touched a girl's breast and nipple(less than 15 seconds) in a bar in Thailand and she gave me a peck kiss(dry kiss) on my lips(no exchange of saliva). Can I get HIV from this? I am really worried...
