Hiv positive risks

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv positive risks


Avatar n tn you either have HIV or you don't. Knowing the test result won't change that fact. Even if the result were positive, it will be less stressful to know for sure than to stew about it. You know this intellectually. Just do it. Anyway, the result will be negative. You describe a virtually zero risk situation for HIV. Symptoms don't matter one way or the other.
Avatar n tn What risk would there be in kissing someone (exchange of saliva) and that person using saliva on your penis as lubricant during masuturbation, saying the other person was hiv positive ?
Avatar n tn After 8 week I went for a test it was negative. My question is , was I at risk if the lady was positive? Help me what I can do about it, for I'm psychologically affected.
Avatar n tn I have broken off with her sexual. I immediately went and tested for HIV. The test was one week after the last two sessions but a full 7 weeks after the first session. I called her and she was insistant she was healthy, usually very discriminating in her clients and slept with me because she liked me. (It was not as a client.) The test was negative. I am currently taking 750 mg of Lavaquin for a recurring bout of prostatitus. I have about 14 days left on the dose.
Avatar m tn Dear Doctor I want to add that I face now a very high fever!
Avatar f tn As to eating out in restaurants, etc, -- again, life is not without risks once you get out of bed in the morning, but I wouldn't give restaurants a second thought. And why would you want to kiss someone with a cold sore?
Avatar n tn Hi, I'm 30 years old female and I'm affraid that I was exposed to HIV. I had unprotected intercourse with a man 44 days ago. With same person I had one more intercourse 3 days ago with protection (condom) but it was used very uncarefully. Yesterday i found out that person has very suspicious history (ex drug addict). My first question is: What are the chances that i might be infected at all? My second question is: When is the best time to do test (Anti-HIV1, Anti-HIV2 + p24 antigen)?
Avatar m tn If I masturbate a man, assuming he is HIV positive, and his semen comes in contact with my body, is there a risk? 2: If I rub my penis ,the glans, against his and our precum or cum come in contact, is there a risk? 3: If I suck a sexworker's breasts and lick her sweat, and have a sore or an open wound in my mouth,is there a risk? 4:If a sex worker does a blow job on me,or I on him/her, is there a risk? Thanks a lot.
Avatar m tn 3) can hiv positive blood survive in water ? 4) if water with hiv positive blood gets into eye is it dangerous? sorry about discussing this horrible incident here...
Avatar f tn The person is HIV positive. I tested at 25 days and it was negative. What are the risk of transmission? Do I need to get retested? What is the difference of 25 days and 28 days of testing?
Avatar n tn A 3 week HIV test is moderately reassuring; probably 60% of infected people would be positive by then; the symptoms make no difference. Your risk is so low that I actually would not have recommended HIV testing, except for anxiety relief. But you're obviously soneone with exactly that need, so have another HIV test 6 weeks after the event. You can be sure of a negative result.
Avatar n tn On the other hand, congratulations for being wise enough to have safe sex. Condoms work and oral sex carries little or no risk for HIV. The rates of HIV are high among some Indonesian commercial sex workers; I just saw a report of 5% (1 in 20) being positive. But that means it is most likely your partners did not have HIV. And as I said, condoms work and oral sex really isn't an important concern with respect to HIV transmission.
Avatar n tn From the answers you have given to previous questions am I correct in thinking that my risks of contracting HIV from this single exposure would be approx. 1 in 1000 if the lady was already HIV positive? Assuming that there is a 10% chance that she was (conservative?) and a 1 % chance that the condom was ineffective, is the chance of me contracting HIV around 1 in a million?
Avatar n tn The possibility of catching HIV from your eposure 9 months ago is impossible to judge without knowing more about its nature (sex of your partner, his/her HIV risks, the kind of sex you had, condom use, etc). However, the risk usually is low from any particular sexual encounter, and your symptoms do not suggest you have HIV. So the odds are strongly in your favor. But the only way to know for sure is to be tested. As you already know from Dr.
Avatar n tn I want to know risks associated with HIV for un protected oral sex,fingering and handjob.
3191940 tn?1447272317 “The risk of HIV, if your partner is HIV-positive, is around 1 in 10,000. That's equivalent to giving BJs to infected men once daily for 27 years before transmission might be likely.” Neither recommend testing. Here is a study of serodiscordant couples that supports their recommendation: I suggest that you give events like this the same concern as you might to being trampled in an elephant (which is probably none).
Avatar f tn I just get medical result HIV positive, is there is still a chance or i am infected
Avatar m tn When I used to do anal sex (men 2 men) bareback with my partner, I ejaculated my semen into his anal and that happened several times. We are both sure that we are not HIV positive and not bleeding either during the sex. So, is that risky to get HIV positive for me and him? Another thing is to say that sometimes when I put my penis into his anal and start throbbing, a yellowish (poop type) fluid comes from his *** and get slippery of my penis. Is that also carry the risks of HIV Positve?
Avatar m tn thank you very much Teak, So there is not any relation between IgG positive and HIV ??
Avatar m tn even if she had hiv, it is not likely that you contracted hiv from the MINIMAL exposure you describe. with that being said, the only way to know your status is by testing. 3 months post exposure will give you a conclusive result.
Avatar m tn hey,guys,thank u for ur attention first.I am a male from China,45 days ago, I had sex relations with a prostitute,Unprotected oral sex and protected sexual intercourse,In the oral process, there is a strong pain in the penis,After 2 weeks, there are many symptoms of sore throat, dry mouth, dizziness, skin rashes,ect. Yesterday at a local hospital for a test,(Roche quantitative chemiluminescence),I do not know what detection method this is.and the result is negative,CIO value of 0.
Avatar n tn I have read consistent information in this forum based on various studies that being the giver of oral sex (even if blood is present) poses very little risk of HIV transmission if the recipient is HIV positive. While I grasp this notion, from a non-medically trained, layman's point of view I am curious as to why this is. My curiosity comes from the facts that the interior of the vagina is relatively susceptible to HIV, while the mouth and throat are not.
Avatar m tn I have read that the risk of getting HIV by oral sex is 1 in 10 000 if the woman was HIV positive. As most CSW in Germany do not have HIV and they are regulary tested, is it not unreasonable to assume that no more than 5 percent of the CSW in Germany have HIV? So, on average, are my risks of getting HIV by the event maybe 1 out of 200 000? Is this a correct reasoning? The thing is that I have a woman in my life after that incident, and I refuse to have unprotected sex with her.
Avatar n tn 5 is close enough), 95% of HIV tests that are going to be positive will be. Given the low risk nature of your exposure, you can trust your results when they come back negative and do not need further testing. 3. Testing for gonorrhea, chlamydia and nongonococcal urethritis. This is routine and appropriate. 4. I think she was being overly conservative. Many people are told to recommend this but on this site, for people in your situation, we find that it is excessive. 5.
Avatar n tn This raised my suspicions of her being HIV-positive. I have also read in the medical literature, particularly CDC reports, that French kissing is discouraged because there is a slight risk of HIV transmission, particularly where both parties have bleeding gums. My concern is that I had ulcers at the time and my gums are not in perfect condition either. I do not know if her gums were in the best state, but it was a little reassuring to note that she does not smoke.
Avatar m tn Your 12 week negative test is conclusive for unprotected sex, you do not have HIV Deep kissing is not a risk for HIV, so you do not need to continue testing
Avatar m tn I have to say that I do think you (and maybe the ER doctor) overreacted -- this was not an exposure that in my opinion warranted PEP. Hand-genital contact and fingering are not significant HIV risks, even with an infected partner -- and it is statistically unlikely your partner had HIV. (In most of the US and most industrialized countries, even among commercial sex workers and the most sexually active heterosexual women, well under 1% have HIV.
Avatar m tn He's been on anti-retrovirals for the past 10 years and his HIV load count is undetectable. I've been told by a friend who is HIV positive that the risks of transmission of HIV is negligible when someone's load count is undetectable. Can you let me know if this is true? I'm generally the active partner and would like to stop using condoms when we have anal sex. Having searched the internet, it seems very difficult to get a straightforward answer to this question.
