I went for a blood test today at a laboratory.
Before drawing blood, the nurse tore a piece of cotton and kept it on the table. It just looked to me as if it had some blood on it. When i picked it up to check i did not see any blood but just the liquid that was put on it (red color in bottle but light purple when i saw on cotton) for cleaning.
Now my question is that is it possible that there was blood but because of the liquid applied to it the color suddenly changed or was it just the sterlizing liquid. Because it did look like red in color at first sight, then the liquid was applied again i think and after this i picked up to check if it had blood but couldnt see anything but light purple liquid.
Is it possible that color changed and infact it was blood or was it just some reflection. I dont know i am just so confused what happened. All this happened within a minute. Would that liquid have killed the hiv if at all it was present. Can it infect me because this piece of cotton is what i used before and after the blood was drawn.
Thanks in advance.
This happened a few days ago when I visited a mall. When I was standing and peeing due to an accidental push from a gentleman next to me who was about to slip and fall, the tip of my penis came in contact with drops of urine there. Will it spread HIV
The dryer on my dorm floor keeps breaking so I have to dry my clothes on other floors. I had to use the dryer in the all male floor. A lot of my laundry is under garments. I'm worried that I can get some sti from using their dryer. I don't know what people do. Also, can I get infections from touching my own laundry by putting them away without washing hands from outside and touching doors and other things of that nature?
I went to a fast food centre, were the person normally who serves food was cleaning the floor. when I went to get my food, the person used the same hand without washing and provided me a food and I ate it due to hungry.
Later I realized what if the floor was not clean enough or contains some body fuids/blood infected with hiv, do I get hiv or hep from this situation or do I need to get tested
I was with a girl and i penetrated into my underwear 2 times. The first time i was above the girl and my penis area was right above the vaginal area of that girl and i was rubbing on to her track pants and the second time when i penetrated that time her vaginal area was above my penis area and she was rubbing on me. In both the cases we both were wearing pants above our underwears.is there a thing to worry? Have i got the HIV virus in me ? Plz help..
So I mutually masturbated with my HIV positive partner. When he ejaculated he spread it on my face. I have razor bumps that usually bleed when I shave. Think I shaved about an hour before I got any cum on me but should I be concerned since he is HIV positive? What if when I wiped off the cum a few moments after with a towel? I know HIV cannot live outside the body for long but exactly how long? Am I at risk?!
Hi I have a question about oral HPV. I hope you can help me cause I can't find any sites that can offer help with this STD. I do know the difference between HPV and HIV.
I had dinner with my aunt who has high risk HPV 16 and HPV18 answer as diagnosed with cervical cancer. She used her chopsticks (that she has eaten from) and gave me some meat. I am concerned if the high risks HPV16 and HPV18 can be transmitted through this kind of saliva contact? What are the risks that she can transmit the viruses to be? And I read on about oral cancer and HPV, how is the HPV that causes oral cancer transmitted? Am I at high risk? Please help cause I am panicking like nuts right now. Thank you
I had an encounter recently where the girl ended up and subsequently masturbated me. During the time I never penetrated her but our private parts were close and might have even touched. She stroked me very aggressively. O am not circumcized and I heard that the foreskin is an area where HIV can pass or be absorbed. Is that true? Also, I'm worried because I wasn't wearing a condom and the tip of my penis may have been exposed to since bodily fluids such was followed by some aggressive maturation.
Please will you let me know if I'm at risk.
please answer my question. i was at a shoe store shopping and my back of my hand which is split by dry skin and had a strip of blood coming out of it and I bumped into what i thought was blood on the shoe box. to determine if it was blood i took a piece of tissue paper from the shoe box container and wiped the area on the red shoe box that i thought was blood. red stuff did come off on this tissue paper and just to make sure this was just not the coloring of the shoe box i wiped another side of the tissue in a different area and nothing came off. im horried that someone hiv contaminated blood got in my cut that was clearly bleeding on my hand. then i immediately washed my hands about 20 min later and went to bathroom and then i thought i saw a little reddish stuff could be lint or something on the tp. im afraid that blood was on my hand. can you just please tell me the truth if you can catch hiv by bumping your hand against something that could potentially be blood if it was just put there? im freaked out am I at risk? please answer this question.
Let's say that you touch ("play with") a guy's erected penis, and then you masturbate (imagine you're a guy too). If the guy didn't have any fluids, can you get HIV from him?
