I had a protected sex with a sex worker and unprotected oral sex last night, do I need to take prep for Hiv?

STD Testing: With your history of risky sexual behavior you should always have frequent follow-up with primary doctor and receive frequent testing for sexually transmitted diseases. Having oral sex and intercourse with sex workers is an easy way to contract STDs, including HIV. Best course of action is to avoid these situations, use protection at all times. ...Read more

Iam 25 years old male I had unprotected vaginal sex with a sex worker after 28 days I do hiv duo test the result was non reactive. Hiv possible?

Very unlikely: HIV duo test is reliable more than 95% after 4 weeks of exposure, conclusive > 99% at 12 weeks. You need to test for other STIs as well if you had a risky exposure, not test for HIV alone, be safe ...Read more

Hi I had protected sex (vaginal) 2 weeks ago with a sex worker with unknown HIV status but had unprotected oral sex for about a minute, what is my risk?

Hi I had protected sex (vaginal) 2 weeks ago with a sex worker with unknown HIV status but had unprotected oral sex for about a minute, what is my risk?

Safe sex: You had safe sex -- congratulations on your wise decision to use a condom for vaginal sex. HIV is rarely if ever transmitted mouth to penis; there are actually no proved cases that it ever happened (despite claims). However, condoms can fail; and other STDs (gonorrhea, herpes due to HSV1, syphilis) can be transmitted by oral sex. Be on the lookout for symptoms and maybe get tested even if none. ...Read more

You're okay, man!: Truth be told, I don't think this is a "terrible mistake". You didn't put yourself or anybody else in serious danger, or abuse anybody, and this is much tamer than the vast majority of the guys you know have done. Get tested for HIV once because all guys your age should get the test once. Then be proud that you've set high standards for yourself and wait for that one wonderful person you'll marry. ...Read more

I had unprotected insertive oral with sex worker 2weeks ago. I'm having loose stools for 10days plus. Is that a sign of HIV?

I had unprotected insertive oral with sex worker 2weeks ago. I'm having loose stools for 10days plus. Is that a sign of HIV?

No risk, no worries: First, this was a zero risk event. HIV is rarely if ever transmitted mouth to penis (or by any other exposure to an infected person's mouth or saliva). There has never been a proved case. Second, loose stool alone is not a likely symptom of a new HIV infection. It probably has nothing to do with the oral sex event. No worries, no need for testing unless you want to do it anyway for reassurance. ...Read more

Get an HIV test: I would recommend getting an HIV test now and again in 6 months. If both are negative then you should be fine. Please be sure to always use condoms unless you are in a long term monogamous relationship. ...Read more

Abrasion on penis after unprotected blowjob received from sex worker. Can I get HIV from this act? There was no vaginal nor anal contact.

Abrasion on penis after unprotected blowjob received from sex worker. Can I get HIV from this act? There was no vaginal nor anal contact.

You're okay: HIV doesn't seem to be transmitted by this route. Saliva doesn't deliver it effectively, and a mere abrasion is unlikely to allow the virus into your bloodstream anyway. If you're going to get all worried like this over too-small-to-estimate risks, life'll be too hard. Use a condom next time -- you are risking gonorrhea from this. ...Read more

Had unprotected sex with sex worker 20 years ago but blood test is HIV negative to this day. Now have have family and all have bad allergy and skin rash. Do you think this is related?

Had unprotected sex with sex worker 20 years ago but blood test is HIV negative to this day. Now have have family and all have bad allergy and skin rash. Do you think this is related?

Not likely related: If you mean by allergies - seasonal allergies to pollen, mold, pet dander, etc there that tends to run in families and cannot be "caught" from another person. Skin rashes like eczema often accompanies people with allergies and are common. Again, not contagious. Take care! ...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

What are the chances of exposing to HPV after receiving blowjob from a sex worker? When can I expect to see symptoms?

What are the chances of exposing to HPV after receiving blowjob from a sex worker? When can I expect to see symptoms?

HPV: This obviously depends upon whether or not the sex worker has HPV. Not aware of data which would allow one to estimate risk of exposure. If you became infected it is more likely you would do so without necessarily developing any symptoms. ...Read more

Had sex with a sex worker in spain about 5 months ago and used protection but I keep thinking I got hiv? What are the chances?

Need to get tested: Use of protection (condom) decreases your risk but not to zero. You should get tested in my opinion if only for piece of mind and to do a good thing for your future partners. There are also a number of venereal diseases as well as hepatitis c that are transmitted sexually. You should see a doctor asap. ...Read more

Depends: If you had intercourse with female and you used a condom every time, did not perform oral sex and she did not perform oral sex on you then chances ate very low though effectiveness of condoms is limited by users truthfulness about their use., condoms at 95 to 99% if used properly 100% of the time. It is simple and quick to get an HIV test. Get one now for piece if mind. ...Read more

Dear doctori had protected sex (by condom) with a sex-worker woman, 20 days ago. I don't know any thing about her health. I am worried about hiv. Is it possible that I might have contractedit?

Dear doctori had protected sex (by condom) with a sex-worker woman, 20 days ago. I don't know any thing about her health. I am worried about hiv. Is it possible that I might have contractedit?

Get tested for STDs: Most people w/ a new HIV infection will test positive by approx 25 days post exposure. Although u should get tested sometime around a month post exposure, it's also recommended that u get tested again 12 weeks after the exposure. Be sure to get comprehensive std testing along w/ HIV testing. See sexualhealth. Com or go to a local std clinic or primary care doc. Use condoms and avoid sex workers. ...Read more

I had protected sex with sex worker but still very worried about HIV going in depression?

Therapy: Your chance of having caught HIV is basically zero, your chance of having caught something else is very low, but you realize that your feelings have been stirred up by what for you was probably an emotionally complicated adventure. Please get with someone who can help you understand yourself & what happened -- and hopefully turn this into a basically pleasant memory of a milestone. ...Read more

Protected sex with sex worker ECLIA hiv 1 and 2 ab/ag on 8, 9, 12 weeks and I had tested 2 time at 12 weeks another test I used is cmia ab/ag

Overtested, stop: The HIV Ag/Ab tests are conclusive any time 4 weeks or more after the last exposure. Your negative result at 8 weeks proved you didn't catch HIV and all other tests were superfluous. You don't need any more tests. ...Read more

Hi, I had a sex with sex worker... around 8days ago. I feel fatigue for past 6days. Is it because I'm anxious incase of HIV or it's HIV making fatig?

Hi, I had a sex with sex worker... around 8days ago. I feel fatigue for past 6days. Is it because I'm anxious incase of HIV or it's HIV making fatig?

No worries, not HIV: New HIV infections generally don't cause fatigue without fever and other symptoms. And your symptoms started too soon; 7-10 days is the earliest possible. Finally, I suspect your self diagnosis is correct. When someone suspects his or her own symptoms are due to anxiety or other psychological origin, that usually is the case. See a doctor or clinic for exam and testing, but HIV is unlikely. ...Read more

Any HIV risk during vaginal oral sex (condom used) with sex worker? Test needed?

Not just HIV: HIV is not the only sexually transmitted disease. It is unlikely that you picked up HIV if you had an intact condom on for the whole encounter. However, HPV and herpes could be still get transmitted. It would be prudent to see your doctor for an evaluation and tests. ...Read more

I had sex with sex worker before 8 month. Have tested 8 times in this 8 month period rapid hiv. Wheather I have to tet once again?

Definitely not: Every HIV test available, in India or anywhere else, picks up all HIV infections within 3 months, usually within 6 weeks. Any testing you had after 3 months proved you don't have HIV and was a waste of money. Don't have any more tests. ...Read more
