    Get The Facts on HIV Transmission

    Hi everyone! There are many posts on our message boards from those with questions about how HIV is transmitted who are worried if they've contracted the virus. When you think you may have been exposed to HIV, it can be a really scary thing to experience. It's important to know that HIV is not spread easily and can only be done so through the exchange of certain bodily fluids from an infected person. There is tons of information out there on how HIV is transmitted, and sometimes it can be....

    Worried about getting HIV and oraquick reliability

    *** days after the last unprotected anal. I didn't eat or drink thirty minutes before the test and when I swabbed my upper and lower gums the control line showed red. I read the test at about 22 minutes and there was no T line. Can I accept the results and move on? If by any chance there was more risk after the receptive anal sex, what would the odds that an oraquick would pick up on HIV after about 10 weeks? Thank you for reading.

    HIV Transmission

    About 2 months ago I went into a public bathroom and when I was realising my faeces the water from the toilet splashed my anus and went in my rectum a bit. I am very worried if this would transmit HIV to me

    Need advice!

    I would appreciate your help in this case. A person who I had an encounter with took an HIV test. It's in French so I need help. The result of "serologie HIV de depistage" says "negatif" but below it says "arrete 28/05/10 cas de positivite, confirmation par Western blot realisee. HIV1+2 Ag P24 Type 1 Seuil minimal de detection 2Ui/ml Roche". What does this mean? Does it mean they were infected earlier??? I'm getting panicky. Please, help!

    Should I get tested at 6 months?

    I went through unprotected anal sex for only a few seconds, along with oral. According to a kit test, they were negative. But I’m still concerned even though they’ve only been with one other person. If my thirteen week test is negative, should I go again at 6 months? Some say only those with weak immune systems should get tested at 6 months, and I don’t have a weak immune system.
  • HIV Transmission

    Hello, about 3 months ago, I grabbed a 50 dollar and 100 dollar note and wiped my anus with it because I though it was a cool thing to do. I was very stupid as I was only 13 and I just turned 14 two months ago. I am very worried if I have HIV and I do not know any symptoms. I have had diarrhoea but I think thats because I think I had gastro. Please help me as I am very worried and concerned. I had a unitary infection test and it came back negative and I haven't told my parents about this incident....

    I was in the store tonight and noticed during checkout that there was three different red stains on my fingers. I'm not sure if it was from the strawberries or if it was blood. It was dried. Now I'm nervous because I have open sores on my hands and I breast-feeding my son, should I be worried? Should I get tested for hiv?

    Am I likely to have been infected?

    Around two months ago, I met someone and engaged in unprotected oral sex. We both gave and received. Then for about five seconds, I was the receptive in unprotected anal sex. I stopped immediately after. He did not ejaculate. Previous to this encounter, he had another sexual encounter about three years prior. I bought him an Oraquick kit and he tested negative. But I’m still worried. I plan to get tested at the 3 month mark. Around 13 weeks. I have had no symptoms whatsoever. And I have not had any....

    Oral Thrush and HIV

    I had unprotected receptive anal sex with a guy last week. He told me he was clean but now I'm getting paranoid because my throat started to hurt yesterday and today I shined a light in my mouth and saw white stuff on my tonsils. I read a bunch of stuff on the internet and they all say that people with HIV normally develop thrush. Some articles say it happens when it's advanced and others say it can happen within a few days of exposure. I'm super paranoid and feel like anything that is....
