Hiv positive risks

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv positive risks


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 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 m tn Ahh.. cool... I was reading something on Dr. Tan's blog. The I spotted someone whose only "risk" was handjobs, and tested positive (WB) for HIV. Horrified, I kept on reading, and thankfully, it was a false positive. Good god, imagine the anxiety attack...
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.

Thanks a lot.
Avatar m tn Dear Doctor First of all thank you very much for this forum and for the time you take to help people understand better their risks. My question is as follow: 8th of October I went to a FKK in Germany and had an encounter with bulgarian girl. Oral sex and vaginal sex were protected but when moving from oral to vaginal sex the condom was like a little bit out (I have psoriasis). I handed the condom in place and had with this girl a vaginal sex for few minutes.
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 f tn I got a massage from a masseur whom I found out to be HIV positive with undetectable viral load. He massaged my penis and tip of my penis quickly and I had some scratches on my right leg. Anything to be worried about?
Avatar f tn t share hollow needles to inject with which is the only other way to acquire hiv - there are only 3 ways to get hiv. Analysis of large numbers of infected people over the 40 years of hiv history has proven that people don't get hiv in the way you are worried is a risk. HIV is a fragile virus in air or saliva and is effectively instantly dead in either air or saliva so the WORST that could happen is dead virus rubbed you, and obviously anything which is dead cannot live again so you are good.
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 m tn m not going to say your expisure is risk free as any unprotected vaginal/anal sex is a risk. However the odds that he had HIV in the first place is slim, and even if was HIV positive the odds are still greatly on your side. Your symptoms are very generic which is why you cannot diagnose HIV from symptoms alone. Anxiety however can make you find symptoms that are not really there, hence Google is not a good therapist. I recommend a HIV Duo test at 28 days post exposure.
Avatar f tn Ok so I got an HIV test done and I got the Screening ELISA Positive but then they did a western blot with the same sample and it came back negative. I was freaked out so I went for an over the counter saliva test that came back negative but then google worried me again and I went for a DNA PCR test a week later with a new blood sample and they ran another ELISA both of which came back negative.
Avatar n tn I want to know risks associated with HIV for un protected oral sex,fingering and handjob.
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?
1237965 tn?1268138166 is a 4th generation hiv test accurate after 6 weeks? i was tested at 22 days with a negative result then again at 43 days again with a negative result. is this conclusive? i do plan on going for the 12 week test i have been having certain symptoms viz: slight headaches, stuffy nasal passages and sporadic fatigue.
Avatar n tn Is only possible exposure was to pre***. Is hiv a risk? I am almos positive there was none. 30 seconds at most.
Avatar n tn gov/pmc/articles/PMC5339276/ Not a single person who was HIV-negative got HIV from oral sex, after a multitude of oral encounters with someone who was confirmed HIV-positive. You can find any outlier, and you can also find calculations that lead to an 0.001% risk of infection this way. If you wish to lead your life in fear of a situation that is akin to winning the lottery jackpot, that is, of course, your choice.
Avatar f tn I would like to know the risks of taking in a HIV positive child into your home. This child is 14 and has been HIV positive since birth. Her mother recently passed away from aids and a family member of mine is considering taking her in. I have concerns about this child being around my children and my nieces and nephews. Are my concerns unfounded??
