Hi, I have a risk assessment question.
Today I had my routine STI testing and took the bandage off and the blood draw puncture wound was dry. I got on the bus and absentmindedly wrapped my arm around the vertical rail for support. I probably didn’t touch the blood draw site to the rail, but I could have. Then I realized the site was close to the rail and had a minor anxious panic and stopped at shoppers drug mart for hand sanitizer and scrubbed it, then it bled just a bit from the sanitizer scrub. The bus rail didn’t appear to have had any obvious blood on it after I took my arm off it. When I was touching the rail the venipuncture site was dry and not bleeding.
What, if any, is the risk of transmission of hiv/hcv?
I know this seems like a trivial question, but I experience a lot of anxiety and am looking for some support.
Hello I have a question well ill just tell u what my concern is...my mom had aids. She recently pass away. She left behind so many clothes and underwear and bras. I wash her clothes even though they were clean including her underwear. I wore a pair after i dry them in the dryer. My question is can i catch aids by wearing her underwear? Plz help son I can stop stressing.
May I begin by thanking you for all the help you give to other people, and please forgive me if this is an inappropriate request for your website. However may I ask a question for clarification please ?
If my partner uses a toilet and if she should sit in hiv infected semen (or other bodily fluid) or gets this fluid on her skin, could this hiv then be passed on ?
The reason for my concern is that my partner used a toilet but very soon afterwards, as part of becoming intimate, I licked her legs, behind her knees and thighs. However I am worried since these parts of the body may have been in contact with the toilet she has used (toilet seat or the toilet itself), and any hiv may not have been inactivated due to lack of exposure to air (i.e. the toilet lid may have been down).
I would appreciate a reply at your convenience, but above all would like to thank you for your time and attention. I apologise if my questions appear silly, and genuinely do not wish to waste your time - I just wanted to clarify any risks involved should this situation arise. I hope the way I have written my question(s) make sense. May I also add that I would be more than happy to arrange a donation to your great cause.
Thanking You and Kindest Regards.
(I had send yesterday the same question, but no answer get)
I have been in a hotel in. Since I have booked two escort ladies, who offered me on the bed a Lesboshow. I just watched, i touched none of the ladies and none of the ladies touched me. The two ladies haven driven it wild with hands and dildo's.
In between, they once went to the bathroom or the balcony to smoke a cigarette. I did the same. Then I masturbated myself with my hand on the penis, of course without a condom. As far as everything is safe ...
... the longer I think about it, the more doubts come to me. What if the ladies had placed vaginal secretions or blood over their hands from their vaginas on door handles, appliances, etc. while they were on the toilet or balcony?
And i would then have grasped with my hands in this vaginal secretion or blood and then massaged by masturbating in my penile acorn???
Could this scenario a HIV risk for me, if one of the ladies was HIV positive?
Thanks for your reply, please
how can we get hiv by deep french kissing please give me full detail
The blood stain was red-orengeish and small. I put my right arm on it. It was on a tissue covering the right arm of the chair. I told the nurse to draw the blood from my other arm, the left one. Afterwards I washed my right arm with a lot of soap.
But now I am worrying that the nurse could have touched that stain with the needle or with her hands. I didn't see her touch it but I keep obsessing over this.
What do you think?
I don’t know how to explain it, but the stain didn’t leave any mark of blood if you touched it. The tissue had completely soaked that tiny amount of blood. There was no trace of blood on my arm when I washed it.
Do I need to get tested? I don't engage in any risky behaviour, so, except for this episode, I am not at risk. if I wanted to be tested, how long should I wait? The blood drawing happened today.
In the hypothetical case that the nurse had touched the stain with the needle, would I be at risk?
Last evening, i accidentally bit the inside of my cheek while eating at dinner. The wound was big and much blodd came out; i washed with water, but i continued to feel the taste of my blood inside my mouth for about 1 hour. Then, 2 hours after this accident, i was at a party, an unknown girl offered me to try some of her ice cream that she was eating. She passed me her ice-cream scoop and i ate a small quantity of her ice-cream using her ice-cream scoop.
Now i am a bit concerned because it is very likely that my wound was still bleeding when i shared ice cream and ice cream scoop with that unknown girl, and i would like to know from experts if this event was at risk for any infectious disease.
Thank you very much!
I have big scar in face and have done scare rivision before 3 months after that I did Co2 laser surgery according to my skin doctor . There was a fresh cut made by Co2 laser, just a day after I went to local massage parlour.
A girl messaged me but her hands were not proper . We came close to each other and had tight hug and kiss also (not tounge kiss) . Our head rubbed with each other during that period (may be several times) and I felt pain in my fresh cut . I had forgeten everything at that movement but Now I am worried . I don't have sex but worry is can HIV transmits through my Fresh Injured Head as it was bloody just a day before (blood stopped but still cut was Fresh) . I am worried because we may have head to head encounter several times . I am worried her skin may have tiny moles and breaks through which HIV transmit in my Body . Her status is unknown. Plz

The lady dont have any visible cold sore on the lips, but I dont know If she may have any other injury inside the mouth, I didnt taste any blood during kissing, but I am concern, about HIV risk, assuming she is HIV positive
I was at a restaurant and drank water from a small white porcelain cup. When I turned the cup to its side, I noticed a thin, bright red line on it (similar to that from a red pen). I had a suspicion that it was blood, and I used my finger to wipe it. It left a fading brown streak there and I was positive that it was blood. Immediately I went to wash my finger with water and soap rigorously, but at that time I did not wash my mouth at all until several hours after I left the restaurant.
My questions are the following:
1. Especially since the blood streak on the cup was bright red, I'm not sure if the blood was left there recently or not, so I cannot determine if it is no longer infectious. Could I possibly get an infection if my mouth/lips/gums come into contact with infected water? My lips do have some small wounds (not actively bleeding, but if I stretch my lips enough, a relatively deep wound is visible, almost as if my bottom lips have two pieces that are separate from each other. That evening, when I was brushing my teeth, my gums also had blood coming out from them, so I am also afraid that my gums were also vulnerable at that time.
2. If my mouth, lips, or gums came into direct contact with the blood streak left on the cup, what are the risks of infection?
3. What about consuming water that came into contact with blood? What are the risks?
3. I am reasonably positive that washing my finger (which had no wounds) should solve the issue, but I'd like a word of confirmation as well.
Should I seek treatment as soon as possible?
