Avatar m tn This was my second penetrative sexual act in 6 months and I had tested for HIV 3 month after the first incident but my status was clear (The sex was condom protected) I suspect the working lady touched my penis forskin areawith contaminated fingers -Im very bitter that I took precaution (condom) but I was murdered by this woman-sometimes I want to find her and revenge.My dr has told me to wait 3 months to test.I cannot function-what is the point of testing when I have these obvious symptoms?
Avatar m tn Testing for p24 antigen and/or PCR testing (as for HIV viral load) might give earlier answers. In any case, assuming you haven't had sex with your partner since the blood exposure, she obviously is not (yet) at risk. But you will need to abstain (or use condoms consistently) for at least several weeks. 4) I am not familiar with that particular product. The name implies it contains lamivudine (which is good) plus another drug.
Avatar m tn I had protected sex with a random woman I met at a bar in Johannesburg. Her HIV status is unknown to me. The penetration didn't last two minutes and the condom was on throughout. after ejaculation, I carefully removed the condom and wrapped it in a tissue. I washed off my genitals and that was the end of the act.
Avatar m tn Welcome to our Forum. Please remember to start with that you do not know if the substance you found on your hand was blood and if it was, whether it was from someone who have either hepatitis C or HIV. I'm pleased to assure you that even if what you licking form your finger was blood, there is no risk for acquisition of HIV or for hepatitis C. Both viruses live within the body and on exposure to the environment (air/drying/lower temperatures) they begin to die.
Avatar m tn HOW OFTEN SHOULD I TEST? It is important to get tested regularly. All individuals who engage in risk behaviours should be tested every 3 months.
936016 tn?1332769204 The confusion has been compounded a little by the advice of government regulatory bodies in different countries who have tailored their advice to what they now about commonly used HIV testing methods on the ground. In the UK 4th generation HIV testing methods using HIV 1 and 2 antibodies and also p24 antigen ( a core HIV viral protein) have been commonplace for many years and good experience has been gained with these tests.

Avatar m tn I am 28 white circumsized male. I am currently on business in Johannesburg South Africa and last week I picked up a black African CSW after a few too many beers. Her status is unknown. I had protected insertive vaginal intercourse and as far as I could tell there were no issues with the condom I provided. I understand my risk for HIV is relatively low from this one time encounter. However, what would my risk be in terms of other stds or stis?
Avatar f tn He then started hearing of some poor hospitals in S.Africa and other countries of the world that give blood to victims without testing it for HIV. His phobia, and OCD problem began then. He started studying all about AIDS/HIV. Within the 8 years he has tested for HIV/AIDS 3 times. All tests resulting in negative. All his tests were done in Amman, Jordan. He first tested within 6 months after his accident. His result was negative. He tested a second time, in March of last year (2008).
Avatar m tn Johannesburg - 26 May 2000 Hepatitis C From a Mosquito Bite? Could some unexplained cases of hepatitis C virus infection be caused by mosquitoes? Researchers have found that the virus can bind and replicate in mosquito cells, providing some evidence for that scenario. However, many experts disagree with the notion that mosquitoes may transmit the virus. Hepatitis C virus has infected about 170 million people worldwide; it inflames the liver, which can eventually lead to cirrhosis and cancer.
Avatar f tn My GP diagnosed me w/ 'anxiety attacks' w/out finding it necessary to order any physical testing whatsoever. (The above cardio is a friend of my parents who saw me while I was on vacation in the US). GP put me on citalopram which I went along w/ just to be cooperative, and propranolol to help regulate what he viewed as anxiety-induced tachy. Did not seem to find it significant that symptoms did not occur during periods of actual mental anxiety.
