I apologize for my probably ridiculous fear. The other day, I had been walking in a seedy area of a big city. I was later eating some candy and dropped a piece on the floor, hitting my shoe's underside. I then ate that piece, but as a I did, I bit my cheek and created a small bleed. Is there any way HIV could be spread this way? My shoe had no visible blood and was dry, but it was obviously dirty. Thanks much in advance.
A few weeks ago I was having protected sex with my boyfriend. The condom slipped off and we stopped after that. I went home by train and there I touched bars, seats and buttons and from the train to home I took a 10-15 minutes walk. Before taking a shower I wanted to check if the condom wasn't stuck in my vagina, however before checking I forgot to wash my hands. My question is can I get HIV like this? I don't remember seeing any bodily fluids on the train, if there were any it was probably dry but I'm still a bit concerned.
Hi, I am sorry for asking you guys this stupid question, but I am really worried.
One night I had got deep long french kissing (dunno if one or both of us had there some blood but it is possible) and I also was a bit sick, like having a cold and starting flu.
I know, that there is no risk of getting HIV from kissing because in saliva are some enzymes, but when I was ill, isn't it then possible this way?
Thank you for your answer.
I'm worried about a few sexual encounters I have had over the last year. I was tested for all STDs a year ago including HIV which came back negative. Since then I have seen some sex workers and have had the following performed. Made out with a stripper, oral sex received with condom on twice, 3 hand jobs without condom. Now the biggest worry I have and can't find answers for is that I have a couple gential warts from HPV, that I have had for a few years. These have been there before my HIV test a year ago. Reading online, I have heard its easier to get HIV when you have a penile wart. The only skin to skin contact was through hand jobs in which I noticed no active bleeding from me the receiver or the giver. Am I at risk? I'm re thinking these casual encounters, the worry is not worth the reward.
A prostitute sat on my back without dress, I was wearing full dress (T-shirt, vests and briefs and jeans pant), whether it would transmit aids due to her vaginal fluid in my dress?
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
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.
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.
my grandmother is 89 years old and while talking since my mouth was open and i have sore throat her spit directly hit my throat. am i know infected with hiv(aids) or not
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
