I had a one time unprotected vaginal sex with a french internet in my office whom i have know for 5 months, when i asked her she said, that she does not have any infection and its been three weeks now and i haven't had any of the symptoms. But i am a little paranoid and want to know what are the chances that i am infected? Kindly help me.
Once i had sex with a lady.i didn't know her status, therefore i decided to protect myself.but during the act she removed the condoms without my knowledge perhaps bcos it was my first time i didn't realize it.she told me she was having pains dat is why she removed it.3 weeks afterwards i started having excruciating (very severe) pains in my penis.it lasted for about 2 weeks and went away on its own.Through my internet search, i found out dat it could be a sign of seroconversion illness.Therefore i took a rapid test at 4 weeks and it was negative.i took another test at 3 months and 6 months and they were also negative.
1. My fear is dat is de pains i had in the penis not a seroconversion illness bcos it ocurred 3 weeks after exposure and went away on its own in 2 weeks.moreover i ve lost some weight and feel fatigued of late?
2. Could it be that at the time i tested de antibodies had not reached detectable levels?
3.How sure can i be that the rapid test used in my country (a developing
nation) is accurate?
First of all, thanks for the great work you do! I consider myself pretty well-informed on what's high-risk vs. low-risk for HIV exposure, but I had a couple questions for you.
1. If a partner is rubbing his penis against the anus, but absolutely not penetrating or dipping - a simple rubbing motion with the head across the anus opening - what sort of risk level is this? Does the presence of pre-cum change the risk level? I'm a bit unclear on this, or on where the mucous membranes of the anus start.
2. If a man aims his ejaculate at the opening of the anus but, once again, there is absolutely no penetration, what sort of risk level is this?
Are these encounters described considered equally as risky as penetrative anal sex? If not, then why not?
Thank you so much, again, for the services you provide, and thank you in advance for answering my questions.
I had unprotected vaginal sex, 6 weeks after that exposure I went to a local clinic and had a rapid HIV test done. I tested negative for HIV, how reliable is this result? I'm going to get retested, I'm really nervous that it might be positive.
Hi. I live in Vancouver and I had unprotected sex around the end of July with a guy under the influence of drugs and alcohol. About three days later, I decided to take a HIV test in one of the Vancouver hospitals and the luckily the test result came back negative, but i was told that this test is a base line test.
Here are the questions:
1. What is a base line test?
2. I was told that there is a three months long window period and the hospital staff advised to me take another test on November. However, I am planning to take another on because I am having some rashes on my one of my thighs and been having a low fever. Should I take another test now and not wait till November?
3.I have sex with guys and girls, it is not going to increase the risk of expose myself to HIV virus as long as the sex I have is protected sex, right?
4. I think I should also take other sexual diseases tests, what are other sexual diseases am I at the risk of getting from unprotected sex.
Thank you for taking the time to answer the questions above.
I truly wish the best for all of the staffs in aidsvancouver.org.
Thank you for taking the time to answer the questions above.
I was exposed to HIV in august 2011 and I used a condom but it slipped off and when I realized it did, I discontinued the intercourse. Later found the person was HIV postive and taking medication. I had tested in January of 2012 and the results were negative but I had symtoms, white tongue, swollen lymph nodes, and anal itching that won't seem to go away but I also have constipation problems. I had got pregnant but by a diffrent person and I was tested again by a western test T the end of February and it was negative. I had my baby aug 21 2012. I am still having the anal itching, some white tongue and so is my partner. I am not sure what is going on. I had prenatal care and I was tested. Is there a chance I could be postive after an encounter in aug 2011? Wouldn't the hospital would have known or suspected an infection by my blood work that was done. I am worried about my family and my baby now. Should I be concerned? And what should I do?
I had unprotected risky exposure with one lady before 6month. I done elisa test after exact 6 month. That is negative. Still I am worrying Sir. This test can consider conclusive. After that exposure, I didn’t make any other exposure. Please help me
Is this test can consider conclusive?? Can I believe this test done proper way??
I had unprotected anal sex (insertive) 9 weeks ago with a man of unknown status. I did not ejaculate and the whole experience must have lasted 2-4 minutes. I also did receive oral sex (but did not give) and the man ejaculated over my chest. I had myself ELISA tested 7 weeks post exposure after experiencing symptoms like flu, fever, and diarrhea (though I was on vacation by then, trying out local street food). The results came negative. In light of all this information, what is the probability of me acquiring HIV in this instance? Please help me out as I've been very unsettled, despite the negative result at 7 weeks. Also do all countries now use the 3rd generation ELISA test?
Only protected vaginal intercourse for 2 mins.
No condom breakage and slippage.
