    Still worried

    Dear Doctors, More than 6 months ago I had a possible HIV exposure. According to the tests, I am not infected (5, 12, 22, 26 weeks, negative). I am asking you what are the odds that the results to be false negative? Can the co-infection with other STI or HCV delay beyond 6 months the seroconversion? What other medical conditions can do that? I am not on drugs, I am not aware of any immune condition. I had an undetectable result by RT-PCR HIV 1 RNA at 52 day after the moment of risk. I had a lot of....

    HIV risk

    I was at a friends house whose sister had been a drug user. She hugged me. I noticed she had some scabs and pimples that had scabbed over. If one of them touched my eye during the hug could I get infected. If there were small amounts of blood on the pimples scabs or skins that I didn't notice and it got in my eye could that infect me. Or because it was outside the body would it be no infective.

    Hiv negative?

    Please let me know if my test results are conclusive. I had a condom withdrawal issue that resulted in the condom hanging out of the girls vagina. I heard its a risk if my penis touched the vaginal during withdrawal/slip. I tested 6 months out and also had the girl tested with 4th gen duo antigen test. Both negative. Am i conclusively negative? Any further testing needed? Thank you.

    Hiv transmission risk after sniffing/smelling/inhaling potentially infected bodily fluids?

I opened a vessel of unknown fluid that looked clear in appearance and had a very strong unpleasant smell. The fluid belonged to this individual. I took a sniff of this fluid which almost choked me. I've become worried that this fluid was a bodily fluid, and because of the person's drug usage that....

    Increased risk of AIDS/STDs from Trimix use

    I was wondering if the risk of contracting AIDS or any other STD is increased when using Trimix injections. By the very nature of the injection process, there will be a tiny hole/wound in the penis during sex, even if there has been no bleeding. More specifically: 1. Is there an increased risk during unprotected oral sex (i.e. fellatio without a condom)? 2. Is there an increased risk during protected (i.e. using a condom) penetrative sex? Thank you!
