Hiv testing jobs

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv testing jobs


Avatar m tn I would advise you to be tested using a blood specimen, not oral fluid, specifically drawn for HIV testing. That will be the only way you will know for sure your HIV status. If you live in the U.S., this can be done anonymously or confidentially through any number of counseling and testing sites, usually a part of the health department structure in your state.
Avatar m tn Cunnilingus does not put you at HIV risk, you are fine. Sexual routes of HIV transmission are unprotected anal and vaginal sex.
Avatar m tn Further, most CSWs do not have HIV. Finally, even with unprotected intercourse, the risk for getting HIV in the unlikely circumstance that she had HIV is less than 1 in 1000. With a condom, this risk drops to less than 1 in a million and again, that's only if she had HIV which is unlikely. Rumors of the sort you heard are not worth listening too. 2. PEP.
Avatar n tn I think I have been infected with HIV. My symptoms include headaches, abdominal pain, gastrointestinal problems, leg pain, fatigue, heart problems (palpatations, pain, shortness of breath), and little brown specs on my tongue. This has been going on for about 2.5 years but I havent had the thrush, or the swollen lymph nodes, which I have read is real common in infected individuals. I also know that I have a leaky heart valve which makes my [self] diagnosis even harder.
Avatar n tn That makes the odds you had HIV, before you were even tested, in the range of 1 in 2 million. And hand-jobs are absolutely zero risk for HIV. Finally, there is no serious chance of a false negative HIV antibody test at 6 weeks. Your wife's symptoms are for sure just a coincidence -- which is about a million times more likely than the possibility you caught HIV and gave it to her. To your specific questions: 1,4) HIV is not transmitted by hand-genital contact. No chance.
Avatar n tn Given your son's illness and the professional opinions of two doctors that your symptoms weren't a cause for worry, it seems likely you indeed you were sharing your son's garden variety viral infection. I see no need for HIV testing or for any further concern about your massage parlor experience a month earlier. I hope this has helped.
Avatar f tn Having received 2 hand jobs by CSWs 3 months ago I still cannot put my mind in peace; so I went to a STD screening test for HIV HSV Syphilis Chlamydia Gonorrhea today. Am a bit nervous now since the result to be available in 3 days ... Fingers crossed.
Avatar n tn Oral sex is no risk at all. Testing is not warranted.
Avatar f tn Not going to happen with you not living in a isolation tent. You don't have an HIV concern. You are conclusively negative.
Avatar f tn I'm female and a few months ago I had unprotected sex (vaginal, oral given and received, he fingered me, hand jobs, vaginal during my period) several times over the span of a few months. He said he had only had sex with two women prior. The one apparently always had partners tested prior to sex, but didn't ask him to be tested. The other woman said she only had sex with condoms except for with him. He's never been tested. I have no way of knowing if any of this information is true.
Avatar f tn I had protected oral sex once three years ago and since have had six deep kissing incidents and about the same hand jobs. I have to go for compulsory hiv tests where I live and it is causing OCD do I need to worry too much?
Avatar n tn hello every one, i had multiple hand jobs from a lady who is know diagnosed as hiv we had hand and genital contacts and dry kisses and multiple hugging some times nude there was exchange of fluids during the process and i am going to get married in two months should i wait for 6 months to confirm wether onfected or not or proceed with marriage i am very confused we never had sexual intercourse what is my risk and can i go ah4ad with marriage pls reply
Avatar m tn Go back and reread what I wrote about risk and testing.
Avatar f tn I am a 28 year old Caucasian female (for background purposes). 11 days ago, I had unprotected sex with a mid-40s, Indian man. Around day 8, I had red tonsils and a headache. I went to the doctor and tested negative for strep. She prescribed me Amoxil 875 once per day. By the next day, my tonsils were fine, but the headache remains. I recently changed jobs and some coworkers have been ill, however the internet has me worried that I have HIV.
233616 tn?1312790796 htm now I just happened to have had this testing done and my results arrived today. to my surprise I was CC on the rs 12979860 and TT on the rs 8099917 it doesn't get any better than that. this means that I should be able to clear with a PI added especially if I keep my IR down and get my Dietary restrictions in place.
Avatar m tn You never had a risk of hiv transmission from the situations you described and never required testing at all.This is all you need to know.The symtoms you are having are noit related to this incident but some other condition.
Avatar n tn When I got my first PCR done at San Diego neither me nor my physician were aware of the flase +ves with HIV PCR testing(I believe the latest version by Roche COBAS Amplicor v1.5 is quite accurate???). I was the one who recommended to the doc that I would want a PCR done. But seeing the results my physician immediately told me that PCR count of 400 copies per ml looks like a false +ve, since 2-4 weeks after exposure the viral count is very high(typically >> 10000s).
Avatar n tn protected sex carries no risk for HIV. blow job is a very low risk. your case does not warrant testing at all. your 5 week test is good enough. no more. diarrhea can be due to many things. most likely something you ate. ARS would not show up at 14/15 weeks.
Avatar n tn For insertive, risk is a bit lower, 1 in 200 range. Testing. At 2 weeks about half of people who have acquired HIV will have positive tests. The other half will not. At 4 weeks around 90% of infected persons have positive tests. At 8 weeks over 99% of persons have positive tests. Rgarding your symptoms, the symptoms of the so-called ARS are very, very non-specific. Trying to judge HIV risk from symptoms is usually a waste of time. Hope this helps. Please practice safe sex.
480448 tn?1426952138 I am very honored to be a regular contributor on the HIV Prevention Forum here at MH. The forum is very busy, and we often get the same inquiries over and over. I figured that putting together a journal entry covering the most popular topics, and just laying out the facts may be helpful. I also invite Lizzie Lou and Teak to share their thoughts, and to cover anything I may have missed.
Avatar f tn I have absolutely no knowledge regarding transmission of HIV. And I'm ashamed of that. You are right about how school educates about HIV. We were told in nursing school that you could get HIV if you had chapped hands and I believed that! A lot of nurses believe that, at least where I work. You know, no one even knew how to pull up the forms needed to report the exposure. I had to look for it for an hour before I found it. The house supervisor didn't even know.
Avatar m tn Dear Doctor Hook and Handsfield( i sincerely hoop one of you can answer this question to ease me down), a few weeks ago I had a massage from a girl in Peru(not a prostitute but a typical girl that performs these jobs, she had no cuts on her fingers lips nor in her mouth), she touched/rubbed my anus with her finger and licked my anus( 10 seconds), besides that she also licked my ear(3/4 seconds) in which a maybe popped pimple was( exactly a spot where saliva could flow away).
Avatar n tn On top of that the chances of CSW workers being HIV positive is very slim considering that most escorts are obliged to take mandatory HIV testing on a regular basis. In any case though, you don't have worry about that because you wore a condom anyways.
3191940 tn?1447272317 Again, saliva inhibits the virus, and no one has ever been infected by receiving oral sex. 7) Hand jobs, with or without cuts present. HIV doesn’t “live” on hands or other skin. A wound on the penis that would allow HIV into the blood stream would make it impossibly painful to receive a hand job. 8) Minor wound-to-wound contact. If you have a cut or scrape and it isn’t bleeding to the point of needing medical attention, and the other person has the same, you aren’t getting HIV this way.
Avatar m tn Apparently many prostitutes have oro-pharyngeal Chlamydia from giving blow jobs and mostly are asymptomatic. Started to stress about HIV. I haven't any symptoms that I can recall except for one. Is this a symptom? Around the time of exposure I was watchig TV, eyesight got a bit blurry and then followed with a bad migrane, I had to turn off the lights and couldn't stand any noise. I quickly got sweats and chills followed by nausea, within half hour I threw up and took a ***t.
1024580 tn?1331577721 Remember that if you think you might have exposed yourself to HIV then the best approach is to test as soon as you are able. We know that testing and identifying new HIV positive people is very important in terms of their own health but also in reducing the chances of HIV spread to others. The biggest risk of HIV infection is through having unprotected sex with someone who has just become HIV positive.
Avatar m tn and the HIV and STD tests are extremely reliable. The standard HIV tests at LabCorp cover HIV-2 as well as HIV-1. As for websites that cite such long testing intervals, they are just plain wrong. See the thread linked below, as well as the other thread linked in that one: To your questions: 1) No further testing is needed. 2) Sensitivity 100%, i.e. false negative results do not occur more than a few weeks after exposure.
Avatar f tn Hi, I recently happened to visit hiv testing center for rapid blood test. And the lab technician did it by pricking my finger first and then drawing the blood using a mouth pipette. I am getting tensed by thinking if it had any infection possibilty? Or the person before me had hiv? Is this process safe? What if the sharp end of the pippette was infected?
