Lap Dance Fear

Hi, I went to a strip club and took a lap dance. When taking lap dance I completely ejaculated and when ejaculating, the semen immersed into my pant and seems to be touched her Vagina (as it was a nude lap dance) as she felt wet. Not sure whether there was also pre cum or secretion from her and also not sure about her hiv or any other STI status. I am aware that hiv virus dies when exposed to air in less than a minute but in this case there is no gap. Since I was ejaculating and at the same time touched her Vagina and what if she has HIV + or any other STI and there was also secretion from her at the same time. Do i get infected by HIV or any other STIs from this situation and do I need to get tested for hiv or any other STIs?

Please help me to provide with direct answer for HIV/STIs as I am suffering from Anxiety and fear and I can plan accordingly. Thanks!

infection

3 months ago i had a full body massage from a girl. she gave me hand job at the end. so i need to know whether i am infected with HIV

Kissing

Hello,

I have been trying to practice only activities that would be no risk for HIV. I always thought that kissing was zero risk. I recently kissed a MSM who I did not know. It was only two open mouth kisses that lasted only a few seconda. I wouldn't call it heavy kissing or French kissing. Would this put me at any risk for HIV? I know I didn't have any open or bleeding sores. I am not sure about him, and it was dark so I couldn't see well. But I notice or taste any blood. I am freaking out because I just had a negative 6 week test and I don't want to start the 3 month clock all over again. I apologize if this question was answered before, but a direct response to me may help ease my paranoia. I was surprised to find so many contradictory answers on the internet. Thank you.

Deeply concerned and need clarification

Hi

I've been searching for about and hour through all the posts in order to find the answer to my question, and eventhough some are close to it, I still need some more info. Thanks a lot in advance!

Long story short:
1) I cut myself with a broken umbrella (the metallic part...comparable to a knife cut, actually cuts were bleeding when fresh but no signs of infection). Due to a dermatitis problem and harsh winter, my wounds do not heal quickly.
2) Two days after the cuts I was with a man who began licking and sucking my fingers for about 10 or 15 min. I know he does not have a good oral health and probably have bleeding gums (I was not aware of that until now)
3) I felt a burning sensation when he licked the wounds but for stupid reasons I did not stop him at that moment nor washed my hands.
4) We did not have sex and did not even kiss as he was drunk and I decided to walk away.
5) I washed my hands about an hour after the licking.

Now, I've read here that HIV virus can be deactivated by saliva and is killed by contact with oxygen. But here are my questions:
a) Given that the wounds burnt when he licked them and he probably have bleeding gums, should I consider my cuts open enough to have had virus (HIV, hepatitis, or any other kind) enter my bloodstream from his blood? (i.e. if no burning sensation, I would think skin layer thick enough for protection, but if did burn...?)
b) Considering worst case scenario and that he actually infected me with some kind of virus (I'm more concerned about HIV): amount of virus transmitted would be smaller than via other higher risk activities as unprotected sex (right?) so does window period of 3 months would move to 6 months or longer due to the small quantity of virus transmitted? Is seroconversion dependent on amount of virus transmitted? Should I trust results for 3 months (HIV, hepatitis, herpes, etc.)?

I tried to make it as short as possible but detailed enough. Thank you very much for your great help!

Hi, thanks all for all your help. After reading all of the answers below, I get all of it except for one small thing.........the very last sentence of last paragraph of answer, Tina said, "Since HIV is extremely sensitive to changes in the external environment (e.g. temperature, light, wind, etc.), the virus cannot survive for more than a few seconds". So what confuses me is, if the virus CAN survive for a few seconds, and someone right before me, left blood or semen in the toilet water, and that toilet water mixed with blood and semen splashed into my anus hole seconds after, STILL no chance of HIV infection??

That is my last confusion. If HIV can be alive out of the body for a few seconds and the HIV Blood or semen was mixed with toilet water splashed into my anus, SECONDS after going into water, am I at any risk?

Question:
Hi,

When you state that HIV cannot survive very long outside, what if that HIV fluid was put into the toilet water just seconds before I used the toilet and thus splashed up into anus. Still no risk even if just seconds?

Question:
Hi

I hate using public washrooms to take a poop but I had too in this case. As I let loose water from the toilet splashed into my anus hole. What if the person before me masturbated or bled into toilet and now mixed with water the blood or semen entered my anus. Am I at risk for HIV and why or why not?

Answer:
Greetings,

First and foremost, although we try not to deal in hypothetical's, even if an HIV positive body fluid was present in the toilet water, the virus would have been killed off once it was exposed to oxygen and toilet water. HIV cannot survive outside the human body for very much time at all, even in the best of circumstances.

Fortunately, HIV does not transmit easily, and we cannot get it from any scenario's in a public toilet that don't directly involved sexual contact with someone else.
Answer:
Hello again,

HIV (Human immunodeficiency virus) is a virus that needs to stay in a living human host in order to survive and replicate itself. Once HIV+ fluids exit the body, it can no longer provide the same environment for the virus to survive.
Since HIV is extremely sensitive to changes in the external environment (e.g. temperature, light, wind, etc.), the virus cannot survive for more than a few seconds.

In your situation, there is absolutely no risk for acquiring HIV.

All the best,

Finger with risk of paper cut

hi, what is the risk of HIV from fingering a lady. i had a paper cut

tip of nose to a strippers vagina and anus

Dear Sir / maam,
Kudos on the work you guys do for everyone,two thumbs up to u all..
Here is my question ? I went to strip club and got myself a lap dance, it was the first time ive been to one ever.
the girl that was giving me a lap dance stuck her butt inches from my face , sometimes bending and exposing her vagina , as she did this i was eager enough to smell her private parts, which were very clean.I accidentally once or twice touched the tip of my nose to her private parts ( i dont think it ever touched her anus but it might have maybe only once) as i smelt them.What is my risk ?
What are your thoughts ??

Toilet Seat/Bowl- Risk? Please Help

To whom it may concern,

I was sat on the toilets at work this morning and the side of penis (the exposed head of the penis) touched the inside of the toilet bowl and toilet seat. Very worried it may be possible to contract HIV from this situation. Is the head of the penis a site for transmission?
Please help, my anxiety levels are very high.

Thanks,
