Hiv And Shallow Penetration
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
HIV exposure: HIV is a blood-borne virus and all you need to become infected is exposure to the serum/blood of an infected person in a way that it passes into your skin. Sexual contact is a common way, as it involves skin to skin contact and a level of trauma. Blood contaminated fingers and or penile contact in any way might pass it. Your question is non-specific. ...Read more
In an enclosed area, e.g a ex toy designed for penetration, how long can hiv survive? If waited for 1 day before use is there any risk?
Partial penetration (dipping) for 20 sec no intercourse no orgasme no body fluid verry dry area/hiv?
Can a person contract HIV from a fleshlight aka "a brand of sex toy designed for penetration which is primarily marketed to heterosexual men"?
I wouldn't borrow anyone else's. Use your own.
I suppose it is possible for transmission, but the afflicted person would have to use it just before the uninfected, as the HIV virus does not live long outside the body.
Again, don't chance it. Don't borrow someone else's, and if you get one yourself don't lend it out. Save money and use your hand. At least you know where it's been... ...Read more
Can a person contract HIV from another person's fleshlight aka "a brand of sex toy designed for penetration which is marketed to straight men?
What are the chances of geting HIV from oral sex giving and recieving, brief penetration giving, and kissing. I heard it was rare from other doctors.
Chances are numbers: "chances of getting" some disease is a number, but what does it mean to an individual? Many people ask on healthtap "what are the chances" of something happening. Pretend it is 10%. That means in 100 people, 10 will likely get it. But with just one person, it's different. If he is the unlucky one, his chance is 100%. If he is lucky his chance is 0%. Play it safe, as luck might not be on your side. ...Read more
Is there risk of infection if there was no penetration with an undetectable HIV partner? No oral either. But he did poke anus entrance for 1 second.
Below: There is always a risk, but it is very low with what you have described. ...Read more
I lost 8-10 lbs last few weeks so Dr ordered labs. One of them is HIV. I am a gay male but only have ever done sex orally or no penetration. Possible?
Can you get HIV from pre cum if there was no penetration just touched the outside of vagina and butt?
No: You can get gonorrhea in your throat this way, and less likely a few other illnesses. Especially, I'm worried why you'd ask. If the two of you have a special relationship, you should both be tested for HIV and know each other's status. If she is positive and you are negative, she needs to begin treatment. Best wishes to you both. ...Read more
Kissing a girl: Who comes from an HIV-prevalent area does result in more risk, but kissing is a very low risk behavior so I wouldn't worry about that. My understanding is that docking is between two males: placing one's penis inside the foreskin of another. If ejaculation occurs there would be a slight risk, but only if there were open skin--sore/cut/ulceration. Testing not needed after these. But Stay Safe! ...Read more
Can you get hiv from a men with an unknown status if had sex (penetration for a minute) then use condom?
Yep!: It's not very likely...but while the duration of penetration may be a factor, any penetration could transmit viral particles. Fortunately, female receptive sex is not associated with as high transmission rates as other types of sexual behaviors. Extreme care would suggest you have an HIV test in 4-6 weeks. Practice safe sex at every encounter! ...Read more
Hiv infection, being a virgin. Having outercourse, no penetration (frottage) at risk of hiv specifically?
Is menstrual blood on a condom a risk for hiv? The blood covered 3/4's of the condom. There was only an attempt for penetration, nothing more.
No risk, no worry: Blood on the outside of a condom carries no risk for HIV. Sex during menstruation is no more risky than sex at any other time: in infected women, normal vaginal fluids have just as much HIV as blood does. In any case, the chance any particular female in the US has HIV is very low, including sex workers. ...Read more
I had anal sex with guy for first time in my life. I was recepeint. No ejaculation inside. Penetration for 2-3 mins only. My chances of getting hiv?
Depends: Receptive anal intercourse, even without ejaculation is considered a very high risk for HIV (only sharing IV needles is worse). The key is knowing who you are with, protecting yourself (from HIV & all STDs) and knowing the risks BEFORE you have fun. Consider getting tested every 3 months to be sure & always be safe. Also consider prevention with medication (Truvada) called PReP. ...Read more

HIV Fusion & Entry: In order for the HIV virus to enter CD4+ "Helper" Tcells, HIV glycoproteins gp120 and gp41 interact with the CD4+Tcell receptor and CCR5 and CXCR4 on the CD4+ Tcell. There are two FDA drugs that are either fusion or entry inhibitors. The reason these drugs are important is because some patients become resistant to the other classes and these can be used.

Partial anal penetration with no ejaculation no condom with circumsised men hiv risk for the women?
Protection needed: What you describe could be a risk for a sexually transmitted disease, including HIV. Mucous membranes do not have 'protection' since they are moist, unlike skin say on the back of your hand that is tough and dry. So a penis inserted into an anal opening is technically a risk. Sorry to say. You should get information on having safe sex -it's highly advised. Women are at higher risk than men for HIV ...Read more
I would simply like to know if there are any risk in contracting HIV from direct genital to genital frottage (i.e-no penetration) thank you?
Had a 'low risk' (hetero no penetration) hiv encounter but tested anyway. Pcr/rna undetet 26 days and ab/ag neg 36 days. Are these tests conclusive?
Yes, conclusive: This combination of results is 100% conclusive. ...Read more
I was with 2 girls from kenya. They did protrcted oral sex for me. I did kissing fingering and docking unprotected for them. No penetration. Any hiv risk?
This is safe: You will not get HIV though there is a small risk of gonorrhea. But please think about this. These women are probably trafficked from abject poverty in East Africa and exploited cruelly in Riyadh. Wouldn't you feel better about yourself as a man if you sought and shared real love where there is true mutual affection? You deserve better yourself. ...Read more
Is HIV like HPV easily transmitted? No intercourse and without penetration even? I mean if outercourse frottage existed? Is it possible to be infected
Can HIV transfer from naked anus to penis (cotton trouser, no underwear) no penetration felt bt might touch inner area of anus during rubbing please ans?
Very unlikely: If you were clothed and you did not have skin to skin contact, it is vey very unlikely that would acquire an infection from the circumstances you described. ...Read more
Extremely unlikely: Without penetration, this was a virtually zero risk exposure for HIV and most STDs. (There could be risk of those STDs transmitted skin to skin, like herpes or HPV.) And f your partner is not at special risk (gay, injection drugs, immigrant from tropical Africa, etc), then the chance he has HIV is extremely low. Still, keep those condoms handy and use them! ...Read more
Is rubbing the ass or butt for girl from kenya by penis without penetration cause any risk for hiv? Please help me I am so afraid
Please get help: You have asked the same question and been reassured multiple times. You should not be having these obsessive thoughts. It is not a sign of weakness, but of strength, to get psychological help for these out-of-control and unrealistic fears. ...Read more

For all practical purposes you are free of HIV. Just to be doubly sure get a HIV nucleic acid test about 6 months after your last exposure.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more
