    Possible exposure: semen in eye from high risk individual

    Hi all, I saw a couple of threads on this topic but wasn’t able to get a definitive answer. I had an exposure with a trans CSW, and during ejaculation a drop (or two) got into my eye - didn’t burn etc then, but was slightly red the day after. Is this considered a risk at all - I know there aren’t documented cases of transmission through the eye in a non-occupational setting, but am concerned because of the high-risk status of the concerned individual. Is the health of the eye and quantity of liquid....

    Gail or someone with knowledgable experience on the matter please answer

    I had unprotected sex with a guy over a year ago and was never tested for HIV. What are the odds that I do have it? I asked the guy today if he has anything and his response is Hell no! He then got upset that I do not want to be with him anymore and he made the comment that he does not have it and I probably do but from my boyfriend. As you know this has really caused me great anxiety. I am 100% sure my boyfriend is in the clear. It's the guy from a year ago I am afraid of. If I can recall we....

    Is it possible to have a false negative with oraquick

    Hi I took an oraquick test after having unprotected vagina sex 4 times and one if those times resulted in ejaculation the other 3 times were pull out. This was over a year ago. Today I took an oraquick and it was negative. However the stick did not work at first in the solution so I adjusted while it was still the solution and it began to work. Should I trust my results? I have a blood test too but it takes 3-4 days to process will the blood test show something else?

    I had sex unprotected sex 1.5 years ago and I think I have HIV

    Hello! I had sex a half a year ago with a guy I was in a complicated situation with. I believe we had unprotected sex 3 times that all resulted in pull out. I wasn't worried about having anything until now. I have been seeing the word HIV everywhere and I think it's a sign. What are my chances? I asked him over a year ago did he have anything and he said no. I am freaking out as I feel like I am slowly dying. I have no symptoms whatsoever but I know that can't justify anything
