    Scared & anxious

    12 years ago I gave oral to a girl. I didn't know her hiv status. The act lasted for about 3 minutes. I don't remember having any sores in my mouth and washed my mouth out after I had finished. Fast forward to Jan 2017 I was diagnosed with severe anxiety disorders. Since then I've lost a lot of weight (3 stone in 2 months), I can't sleep although I'm so tired and can't eat properly although I'm hungry. I feel nauseous and generally run down all the time.

    Can dogs transmit HIV?

    Made the mistake of picking up a friendly stray dog and caring for it while trying to find his owner. I put him in the next room and headed to bed. Had a lot to drink that evening.

    Please Help- Pregnant & Scared!

    I am 8 weeks and 4 days pregnant. Last night I was bitten by a mosquito in the dark. I must have squashed one because about an inch from the bite there was blood on my leg. Well I had been scratching this leg while driving in the dark not knowing I got blood on my fingers. I felt something in my nose and without thinking I stuck my finger in my nose (pretty far back and deep) multiple times only to discover shortly after that I had blood smeared on my leg and on my fingers, and I had just put possibly....
