Getting Hiv From Planned Parenthood Needle
Ask the clinic: The details probably vary from one Planned Parenthood clinic to another. You'll need to ask your clinic about their procedures. ...Read more
Hiv infection is caused by a retrovirus....This retrovirus binds to CD4 cells (for the most part). You may detect the virus by several different methods. An elisa test (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay). You may also detect it by doing a test referred to as a western blot (a gel protein electrophoresis). Thirdly by pcr (polymerase chain reaction) which ...Read more
It depends: If someone always only uses their own needles and works and never shares (no backloading, etc), they won't get HIV or hepatitis c. If someone always uses condoms with sex and takes post-exposure prophylaxis if the condom breaks their risk is low. So harm reduction is key. Idu is more efficient for HIV transmission than sex, although unprotected anal sex will transmit HIV in 1 of 100 times. ...Read more
Husband steped on the needle on the beach. Does he need to get tested for HIV? It was during the day, the needle was broken, just the half metal part.
I went to an adult movie theater, sat on someone's jacket but was told to get off, sat back again. I went home and I sespect I might have been prick by a needle. If I have been pricked what are the odds and should I get a hiv test? In addation. I have b
Why HIV volunteers say when u get by poked by needle don't know type of needle it very very liw risk 4 hiv. I got poked thank u?
Please forgive me: I believe you've written a few times variously saying this was on a bus and on a train. Rightly or wrongly, the people from whom you have requested HIV prophylaxis are not taking your story seriously because you cannot describe the needle. A junkie is unlikely to leave his works on a public conveyance seat & these people don't think your taking risky HIV prophylaxis drugs are wise. I agree. ...Read more
I don't know needle type but heard when needle poke u can get HIV wheher hollow or no. I got pokef does this put me at rsk 4 HIV seriously worried help?
Nothing to do but..: Get tested if you are concerned! It should be done three months after. Best! ...Read more
Is it even possible that you get infected by a HIV infected needle injection in the street or in someones car?
What are you asking?: Just how often do you get stuck randomly by needles on the street or in someone's car? If you are sharing needles, you're doing drugs. This is extremely dangerous. Please forgive me if I misunderstood. And please don't share needles even with people you think you know well. ...Read more
I was pricked by a needle in gloves and an hiv positive blood spilled on the gloves. Is it possible I can get hiv?
Is there risk 4 HIV when get poked wirh needle in train sit. I got little red in my butt. I can not see whole syringe. Whatif needle is hollow type?
How come you have to get tested for a full year after occupational exposure to a needle when generally the HIV test is considered fine after 6 months?
I agree: Much of the expense, dysfunction and inconvenience of health care, for physicians and patients, are due to medicolegal concerns even when probabilities are basically zero. I'm sorry you have to go through this. ...Read more
Whenever I am on road, bus/ train seat, I suspect I can get poked by needle. So when you get poked you get real pain or can you miss that concerned hiv?
Answer depends on...: The answer to this depends on who's asking. If a curious person is concerned about being clandestinely poked with a needle, and constantly thinks about things like that, then the answer is, "of course you always know if somebody pokes you." if the person is easy-going and never thinks about those things, then the answer is, "possibly someone with a tiny needle can poke you without your knowing.". ...Read more
Sharing?: Sharing needles with other people will certainly place you at risk for any disease like hepatitis or hiv. If you mean that you're reusing your own needles then the answer is no. Using dirty needles will leave you vulnerable to other potentially awful bacterial infections, however. Once used, needle should be thrown away and not reused. ...Read more
Probably not: The cases in which HIV has been transmitted by needle have been from needles just withdrawn from HIV-positive patients' blood. I would be surprised if drying did not kill this very fragile virus. Having said this, anyone who uses a needle that may be contaminated is playing an extremely unwise game with their health for other reasons. This needs to stop and if applicable, law enforcement notified. ...Read more
How long can HIV live when exited the body. And can you get HIV from tattooing if the tattoo needle wasn't shared?
Instantly: It dies instantly if not going directly into another body. Can only be transmitted with infected needle. ...Read more
Can I get HIV by a puncture with discarded needles o syringes? How many time does the virus survive outside the body?
How true is the statement about HIV aids of, you can get it 1 to 1, 600 if u are not with risk acts, like, needles, haitians, very active partners?
See answer: Risk of getting HIV varies widely, depending on the type of exposure. Transmission happens most often during sexual or drug-using activity. If your only risk factor is transmission from a sex partner, then risk is related to not only the number of your different partners and frequency of sex but to the sexual history of your partners which is often unknown. Protected sex remains best defense. ...Read more
Campus doctor said I was at low risk for HIV. Said I was unlikely to contract it sexually, it was more likely to get it from shared needles. True?
It depends..: The accuracy of those statements depends on the context of your conversation with the doctor. Anytime you exchange body fluids (blood, urine, saliva, seminal fluid etc) with an infected individual, whether via a needle or sexual intercourse, you are at risk of getting HIV as well as other blood borne viral infections like hepatitis B ...Read more
Can youget HIV by going to get tested for HIV at a sexual health clinic? I'm concerned with the needles they use &that people have tested positive there
No risk, no worries: Nobody ever gets infected by having blood drawn. For over 40 years, no doctors or clinics in industrialized countries have reused needles. Don't worry about it. To avoid HIV your entire life, have safe sex and don't share needles for self injection. Don't worry about any other possibilities; they are mostly urban myths. ...Read more
I got a tattoo on my arm. I have doubt artist didn't change needle and ink both. How many chance to get hiv by Tattooing.
In many States:
There are requirements for Tattoo Parlors to use disposable needles.
In any case if you are concerned its unlikely that you have HIV (more likely Hepatitis B /C) and all of these disorders can be diagnosed with BLOOD TESTS which your Primary Care Provider can order!
Hope this helps!

13 years ago (entering 14 years) a person stick a needle in my arm. After these years I am healthy and six month ago wbc 7200 (4000-10000 normal)lymphocit 36% scare of testing but I scare to death. Is it possible to get hiv-1 and no sYm these long time?
Is there a chance that a blood draw needle is contaminated and can I get HIV if it had blood in it. Did a recent blood draw and I'm paranoid now?
Not paranoid: "Paranoia" means a delusion that you're being persecuted or that people are scheming against you. If you're not afraid that people are plotting to give you HIV, you're not paranoid. You don't live in a village in East Africa, you live in a 1st-World country with up-to-date medical systems. I'd be very surprised if they didn't observe Universal Precautions, including sterile single-use needles. ...Read more
Can you get HIV with sewing needle prick open wound 24 hours old that contacts to gas pump which has blood on it?
Please get help: A sewing needle prick is sealed by platelets within seconds and fibrin within a few minutes. Blood isn't going to get through. Hiv is a wimpy virus and won't survive on a gas pump. Zebra, you deserve better from life than to continue to suffer from these obsessive, fantastical, utterly-unrealistic fears. Please get with your physician and ask about mental health care. It will help. Best wishes. ...Read more
My friend had a STD test at planned parenthood. 4 days later they developed cold symptoms. They're worried the needle may of infected them. Any worry?
Not to worry: All needles clinics like planned parenthood use would be sterile. They come individually wrapped and put in a sterile container after use. More likely, if your friend had an std and got an antibiotic via injection, is that your friend has a cold, or possibly, complications from the std. No need to worry about needles. ...Read more
I hurt my finger on a gas pump the other day. I thought I pinched it but in the back of my mind I'm afraid that maybe there was a needle there that was infected with something like hiv. How likely would I be to get infected with that?
You must see your Primary doctor as soon as possible - may need to go early to the nearest Emergency facility.
Unlikely that a needle was there but you must go and find out.
Hope all is OK., and don't delay!

Poked by a needle in train. Tried to find needle but could not. So if there is no barrel of needle, only needle is present then is this HIV risk?
HIV: Probably not. Needle punctures of this nature are from needles with a barrel which contains blood or body fluids from an HIV individual, and this is usually shortly after the needle was used on them. If you have serious questions about this see a local doctor and get prophylaxis and subsequent testing. But suspect you will be fine. Good luck. ...Read more
Possible, depends...: It is possible to get hiv-infected from a needle prick (used by hiv+ person). However, depends on the needle bore size. If it is a thicker needle, you are at higher risk as there is more blood present in the needle than a thinner needle. It also depends on how soon after the blood was drawn that the needle prick occurred. If the blood is entirely dry on the needle, the risk is extremely low. ...Read more
Yes.: Please never use needles that have already been used by someone else. If someone with HIV or viral hepatitis has used a needle previously, and you then stick that needle through your skin, there is a possibility that the infection from the first user will be transmitted to you. Please always use a clean needle and do not 'share' needles. Seek out a 'needle exchange program' if you can. ...Read more
HIV: This is possible, but the needle would have had to been used by an hiv+ individual and you would then have had to have used it very shortly thereafter. If there is a major question in your mind you should be receiving prophylaxis and being tested for HIV with pcr for viral rna. Go and see someone with expertise in this area. Good luck and hope all is well. ...Read more
