Here are some...: No definite answer could be given but it's advised to get tested once every 1-2 yrs if being in high-risk category of STDs such as those with multiple sexual partners + with bisexual practice since many with STDs are asymptomatic, but simply STDs- carriers.

I had a causal relationship with a guy, we had unprotected sex (yes I am fool) HIV test came back negative will my next one be negative in march?

Let me explain: Tests may be falsely positive or falsely negative. It can take some time for the immune system to produce enough antibodies for the antibody test to turn positive
this time period is commonly referred to as the "testing window period" and may last six weeks to three months following infection. Therefore if the initial antibody test is negative a repeat test should be performed three month later. ...Read more

I had one time unprotected sex, I am worried about getting HIV. I tested at a lab -CMIA HIV1/2 combo test. Latest result 42nd day -negative. Conclusive?

I had one time unprotected sex, I am worried about getting HIV. I tested at a lab -CMIA HIV1/2 combo test. Latest result 42nd day -negative. Conclusive?

Nearly so: To be sure, at six months after exposure, get a HIV nucleic acid test. If that is negative you should be okay.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. 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

What are chances for getting std/ HIV from one and only unprotected sex (men with women vaginal)?

What are chances for getting std/ HIV from one and only unprotected sex (men with women vaginal)?

Unprotected sex: Chances of getting std/hiv from just one episode of unprotected sex are much greater than if you never had unprotected sex. Plus, it places your future partners at greater risk, too. Of course, this assumes that you know nothing about your partner's status. You can't catch something that your partner doesn't have but that implies an element of trust. Just in case, wear a condom each/every time. ...Read more

Should I worry about one time unprotected oral sex (gave/recieved) in regards to std and hiv? He had no sores and I've shown no symptoms. 8 months ago

Not likely: After eight months and no symptoms on your part, infection is quite unlikely. Since you apparently are a worrier about such things, carry with you proper protection so you can use it next time. ...Read more

Are u less likely to contract HIV from vaginal entercourse if u never had any STD compared to unprotected anal sex if one partner is HIV positive?

Depends: For males, contracting HIV from anal sex is much more likely if he is receiving than giving the anal sex. In the case of vaginal sex for the male, he is less likely to contract HIV than the female. For females, her chances are greater with vaginal than anal sex, but much greater overall than the male, especially if he ejaculates within her unprotected by a condom. Other stds play no role. ...Read more

I had unprotected insertive oral sex with sex worker and now I spotted purplish lower gum and recently had one ulcer in mouth. Are those signs of HIV?

I had unprotected insertive oral sex with sex worker and now I spotted purplish lower gum and recently had one ulcer in mouth. Are those signs of HIV?

Not HIV, no risk: You are not at risk for HIV from this event. There has never been even one proved case of HIV transmitted mouth to penis. Also most female sex workers in the US don't have HIV, so your partner probably wasn't infected. And no, these symptoms are not at all suggestive of a new HIV infection. No need for HIV testing, but probably you should do it anyway for additional reassurance. Good luck. ...Read more

Gay 43 male! Does having genital warts mean I have hiv? Always wear condoms! Top only! Have had unprotected oral and kissing! I only had one wart I n pubic area then a string on underside of penis!

No: Hpv infection is common in any sexually active person. Hiv is not more likel if one has an hpv infection. Thank you for doing responsible sex. Nevertheless, you should be tested for HIV virus since you are in a high risk group. This is unrelated to your having (or not) hpv. ...Read more

From a medical point of view, it it possible for a HIV to start showing symptoms within 2 days post exposure (unprotected) and why?

Won't happen: Forget "possible". It takes a few weeks for enough of the virus to be on board to initiate the acute illness. Look for some other cause of the person's symptoms. ...Read more

Unprotected several sex with hiv+ 4th gen tests neg up to 130 days. Until when should I test? If negative at 24 week can I be 100% sure im hiv negative

Unprotected several sex with hiv+ 4th gen tests neg up to 130 days. Until when should I test? If negative at 24 week can I be 100% sure im hiv negative

Already conclusive: The fourth generation HIV tests are conclusive any time 4 weeks or more after the last exposure. Any tests you did after 4 weeks were superfluous. You did not acquire HIV during the sexual exposure you are concerned about and do not need any more testing. However, if you are not in the care of an HIV specialist or prevention expert, you could do that and follow his or her advice. Good luck. ...Read more
