Avatar n tn the chance that your partner, as a commercial sex worker in San Francisco had HIV is less than 5% and probably lower than that. Furthermore, this risk of getting HIV through condom protected vaginal intercourse is less than 1 in 100,000. These two factors alone make your statistical risk of having gotten HIV about 1 in 2 million- not something to worry about. Your genital warts do not increase your risk in a meaningful fashion.

Avatar n tn A week or so ago, I was in San Francisco and had an encounter with a CSW of asian origin at what seemed to be an unlicensed brother (massage parlour type set up). I was quite drunk but am always mindful of ensuring that I use protection. Naturally, the CSW was also qute diligent about this. During vaginal intercourse, I heard her gasp and looked down to see a broken condom. She looked like she genuinely thought this wasn't an ideal situation and put on another condom and continued.
Avatar m tn refers to the San Francisco city STD clinic, you are at one of the most expert sites there is; and in general, most San Francisco HIV clinical services are highly reliable. Despite the obvious high risk situation, the odds remain strongly in your favor. The large majority of unsafe exposures, even among gay men with anonymous partners, and despite gonorrhea or other STDs, do not result in HIV transmission. So follow the clinic's advice, and stay mellow as you await hte test results.

Avatar m tn called my doctor who is from San Francisco, and said that the official test for HIV is the lab antibody test. Is this true? He seemed to imply that the rapid tests were not good enough? I have just completed the 3 window mark so i am worried if I should believe the rapid test or if i should do an in lab antibody test like my doctor stated? I am scared it will change????

Avatar f tn San Francisco—Oral sex poses a greater risk of HIV transmission than many people realize, according to a new study of gay men in San Francisco. The study, aired here at the Seventh Conference on Retroviruses and Opportunistic Infections, found that up to 8% of new HIV infections appeared to result from unprotected oral sex, a behavior many people perceive as relatively low-risk.

Avatar m tn Most commercial sex workers, even Asian women in San Francisco are not infected with HIV and few of them have STDs, it is bad for business. 2. You used condoms - they work. 3. While the cuts could, in theory get infected, in practice this does not happen. No risk from the razor cuts. 4. The timing of your symptoms does not suggest HIV or other STDs. They started too early and they do not come and go as you describe. You do not have ARS 5. You have no other symptoms.
Avatar m tn My last medical check up with blood test confirmed I was HIV negative until this single encounter. What is my risk of exposure and/or contraction of HIV? I am very worried. Very stupid and very worried.
