risk from wound on the mouth

Hello friends.
I was really so quiet, I found a scratch on the palate. If my food is eaten or a bowl of chopsticks or straws and drinking water is contaminated with blood, then I have a risk of hiv infection. Do I need to use pep and test
I hope to get an answer soon
Thanks very much

Can u get HIV or STD from a boobjob?

Dear Aidsvancouver, Thanks a lot for having this site and helping people!

I have a question i hope you can answer, I'm normally very anxious about stuff but trying to think clear about this.

1. I went to a massage parlor and was getting massaged, The lady finished off the massage with a handjob and a boobjob. So my penis obviously touched her breast and her nipples. I couldn't see that there were any breastmilk or any other fluid coming out from her breast. i wasn't really looking but i think i would have seen that.

2. So my question is, my penis touched her breast during the hand job and I'm sure the urethra of my penis came in contact with her nipples. Have i put myself at any risk for HIV or other STD´s?

Thanks once again.

Scared Girl


Thank you so much for your great work.
A couple of weeks ago I kissed in the mouth a man which I do not know and he could be a sexually promiscuous man, I don`t know his HIV status. I had a wound on my higher lip from 2 days ago, which was already healing and had a crost- dry cover over it ( a dry wound). The wound was small like 5 mm. He did not have any visible blood on his mouth and he was not having any visible wounds. But he could have had scrathes that I did not see.
Is there any possibility that I could get infected in that way by kissing? I am very scared so I am very grateful for your answer.

Thank you very much.

Dirty Restroom / Shower

Hello AIDS Vancouver,

I had a question regarding the risks involved with cleaning / using a dirty restroom. Would these two scenarios result in any potential risk of transmission?

1st scenario) Water from the toilet splashing into the eyes

2nd scenario) Putting on underwear after walking on the dirty floor (feet will have brushed the inside of the underwear), with the head of my penis being mildly irritated and the opening contacting the underwear directly. This will have occurred about an hour after the last person used the restroom.

Thanks for your time and any information you can provide.

Antiviral Therapy

Hi there,
I was wondering something about ART. If someone has been taking it for over 2 years now and is doing well and healthy, is their viral load most likely undetectable. I am just wondering if my family member is undetectable, but it is not something we regularly talk about.

Thank you.

Casual Contact Clarification

Hi there,

I am trying to educate myself and I was just wondering if you could please explain in detail why casual contact with someone with HIV is no risk. What if someone with HIV began to have a bleeding cut while casually hanging out with them and you accidentally came in contact with the infected blood by brushing up against them, hugging or shaking hands with them? Is this still considered casual contact even if they are bleeding? What if the HIV negative person had a cut or scrape on them as well. I am just wanting to make sure that it is safe for me to be around someone that I know with HIV as I have a baby and would never want to put him at risk. Thank you so much in advance.

Kissing/Making out

So, I read on here that there is no risk for regular kissing, with the exception of blood, is a no risk but I also read that a risk is created when bodily fluids are exchanged so does that make making out with the exchange of syliva a risk?

HIV through receiving blowjob

I received a blowjob from a girl at massage parlor on March 23, 2019. It was unprotected. I did not give her oral sex and neither was any penetrative sex involved (no vaginal or anal sex). On April 29th, 2019 (more than 5 weeks after the exposure), I went for the HIV Ab test, which came back negative. I know that most of the people develop detectable antibodies by 4-6 weeks. Considering the risk of my exposure, is any further testing warranted in my case? I will go for another test at 12 weeks, anyways. But how would you guys rate my current result? How much would you guys "consider" it conclusive?

Risk with handjob


If I received a handjob/touching around my anus from a masseuse if they were with another customer just before me, is there a risk of HIV if they haven't washed their hands? I assume they did the same things with the previous customer that they did with me. Just a bit worried about this.
