Question:

 

Hi There,
 
I had a sexual encounter on the 6th of May 2012 and i m still under uncertainty. My wife is pregnant and i m really scared due to my stupidity. 
 
I had the following tests since then:
 
08/06/2012 which is 33 days after ECLIA antobodies test Negative
18/06/2012 which is 6 weeks HIV AG/AB TEST NON REACTIVE
20/06/2012 which is 6 weeks and 3 days ELISA 3rd generation antibodies test NEGATIVE
02/07/2012 which is 8 weeks pcr rna test real time negative.
06/07/2012 which is almost 9 weeks ELISA antibodies 3rd generation test NEGATIVE
30/07/2012 which is 12 weeks exactly HIV AG/AB Test non reactive
01/08/2012 which is 12 weeks and 3 days 87 days in total ELISA 3rd generation antibodies test Negative
 
My questions are:
 
1. What is the window period 12 weeks or 3 months because i m confused with this? 3 months is 13 weeks so why all say 12 weeks? Does it makes any serious difference the 5 days?
 
2. I have experienced all serious symptoms and still have them. I started having them from 6 weeks post exposure they stopped at 11 week and started again after the 12 week. Is this possible?
 
3. Should i get tested again or i m fine? 
 
Thanks in advance for your kind reply

Hi Volunteers,

 

I baked a cake for a person at a homeless shelter.  He blew out the candles and seemed to spittle a bit and everyone (including me) had a piece of cake.

What I want to confirm is that - HIV transmission would NOT be possible if some of his spit/blood tainted spit were to get on the cake and I were to eat it with possible mouth cuts. Is this right? I didn't see any blood. Secondly, can I get TB/Meningitis or anything serious like this from possibly getting his spit in my mouth from the cake? What is the chance of TB/Meningitis transmission from this incident?

 

Thank you for your help

Question:

I had protected sex with a sex worker.  The condoms/ lube was provided by sex worker.  10-15 minutes later i lost erection and never did came.  I inspect the condom afterward and it did not break.
      12 day after the incident i develop a mild cough with low fever (99f).  Occasionally mild headace, but i think it's from my extreme anxiety.  Fever went away after 2-3 day, but mild cough lasted for over 5 weeks.  I start reading about acute retroviral syndrome (ARS) and now my head keep thinking about HIV.  Can it be a coincident that i get sick right about 12 day after the incident?
    After 25 day of this incident i went for a HIV PCR DNA and antibody test at Lapcorp.  the results was negative or non reactive on both.  Are my symptoms consistent with ARS and can ARS last for more than 5 weeks?  thanks in advance for all your help.

Question:

What are chances of becoming infected by using a condom that had been previously used by someone else?

I had been tricked into using an already used condom with probable sperm from someone else inside it. But i soon realized not more than 2 minutes after and took it of before my ejaculation. Then I cleaned myself and did not involve in any further activities with the sex worker.

It has been about 12 weeks now. In this period i have had slight fever, flu, lots of runny nose, some sore throat and usually dry and heavy eyes(not weakness or tiring). For past few weeks my regular body temperature has been around 97 - 98.

What are the odds here? What are my chances of being infected? Should I go for a HIV test?

Hello Team, 
Yesterday I had sex with my collegue, and During the time of sex I was kissing the girl about 4-5 mins and sucking vagina around 5-10 min, later I weared condom before penetration. After the sex I took bath and washed mouth with water and wash penis with soap cleanly. I am not sure whether the girl has AIDS, but I know that she had sex with may guys in the past and his ex-boyfriend is used to take drugs. So I am bit feared that I might get AIDS (if she has). Can you please suggest me whethere there are any medicience I have to take from now to make sure I will not get infected. And please suggest me when I have to take first test and when I have to take last to get it confirmd that whether it is HIV+/-.

Is there any cure of having one time oral sex?

Question:

7 months ago i received a handjob in massage parlour in thailand. The sex worker was fully clothed and she used oil to perform the handjob. Being in thailand and in places where there is high exposure of STD can I acquire HIV or any STD from this act?
After a week from the event i had flu. Also Ive had fever twice, after the third month and after the sixth months? Do I need to get tested? Am really worried.
