    HIV risk from faucet to soda can to mouth?

    Hi! I recently got a job as an administrative support in a clinical laboratory. We'll one time, I really got thirsty that I decided to buy a soda in can from the convenience store.

    Are we at risk?

    I'll try to make it short. My gf of over a year just moved in with me about 3months ago and she started using the pill and wanted to have sex without a condom, so we did. a while later we went on a trip and after we came back I got sick( sore throat,nausea I believe because of anaxity, I vomited one time) also, she had a sore throat and fatigue about 3 days after me getting sick.

    Unprotected oral sex worry

    Hello, I (male) recently had oral sex with a man who claimed to be HIV- but my anxiety is making me think otherwise. I was the penetrative partner and he performed fellatio on me.

My local clinic said not to worry unless there was a lot of blood coming out of his mouth and a cut with blood coming out on my penis. However online I read that it can be transmitted through the urethra and with a small amount of blood? I was also wondering....

    Am I just being paranoid

    Hello so this may sound crazy but four years ago my gf falsely accused me of rape as a way to get back at me for cheating on her. I never raped her and she is slandering my name around town She knows where I live because she found out from a person who knows my roommates.

She knows about my fear of people poking me with needles to give me hiv. I heard....
