    5-7 years.

    When I was in my early 20s (I am 29 now), I was going through a phase where I just quit caring about the things I did. I had friends with benefits, what have you. Half of the time it was protected, but other half it wasn't. Another thing that happened in my early 20s was.. I was raped by 3 or 4 guys in the same night. I went to a party with a 'friend' (I say this in 's because I thought he was a friend) and I got way too drunk, ended up having unprotected sex with said friend, but....

    Worried about the possibility of contracting HIV

    Hi, In the last couple of years, I have visited escorts from time to time (average 4-5 times per year), when I feel stress from work. I am however very carefully made sure that all the intercourse are protected. All except one of the oral sexes are protected, too. I used to be much more worried, and couple of years ago I visited a GP and discuss with him about this matter. He is laughing at me, and told me, there is basically no risk, and there is no need even to have the test. Very recently (in....

    HIV from rubbish bin?

    Hello! So basically I went to Costco for shopping and ate some sandwiches and then I threw my trash in a rubbish bin with swinging cover. Of course, my hand touch the cover. I did not wash my hands afterwards. After driving home for like 30 minutes, I rested for few minutes and took some cookie with my bare hands. I mean, if someone with HIV touched the lid just before me and I also touched it and touched and ate a cookie with my unwashed hands, can you get HIV this way? Thank you.
