shaving machine of someone who is hiv +
« on: June 20, 2006, 12:34:25 PM »
Hello every body , thanks a lot for what you are doing for the people out there , first I am really appreciate what you are doing and I would like really to donate something to your site after having the conclusive result after one month from now

I posted my question on the old board under the name of sami unfortunately I could not get it again  it was about the fearing of getting HIV from the  needle used it to take my blood , witch I believe for one reason or anther he did not changed the needle of the container after he left the room my fears came up , any way most of you did not believe he did but I am sure 

I did the test It came negative , after 6 week  and at the week 7 I felt soar throat

 My question is that,
I will do another test tomorrow, could I have the ARS and the test came negative, or if you got the ARS the test should be positive
Thanks so much again

You do not get HIv from the needle used to get your blood.

I refuse to cater to your irrational fears, and will not participate in this conversation any further. I urge the others to do the same.

HIV tests are very sensitive. If you were HIV infected and tested after ARS current tests would pick it up as long as you test at the appropriate time.

The CDC recommends doing that at 13 weeks after a risky incident. If by your question you are implying 1) that you have had symptoms which YOU are interpreting as ARS and 2) are trying to test at an earlier point, then the answer still is for a reliable negative result you need to test at 13 weeks.

If your question is still indirectly referring to the same non-risk incident then it's all moot because you have not been at risk.

thank you so much for your answer andy

 1- Theoretically, if some one has a real ARS he should tested positive that is clear
 That is clear now,

2- Way you think the incident is not risk, could you please explain to me, little more
 
  best regard

There's nothing to "explain." Your whole concern is based on a supposition that an HIV-contaminated needle was used for your test.

Not to put too fine a point on it, THAT'S RIDICULOUS! That's all mindstuff on your part and it has no basis in either HIV science or how testing is done.

« Reply #7 on: August 23, 2006, 11:42:07 AM »
hello
this is for one of my friend

  to make very long story short ,
he used ashaving machine of one of his realatives who eventually he  kenw he is hiv +
the bad thing that he did bleed during the shaving

the good things that
1 the person infected did not used that shaving machine for at least 5 days ,  before my friend used it and that for sure
2- one night befor  my friend used the shaving machine he  put hand sanitizer on the top of the sazor ,, those gely ones used instead of soap  ,,

i always have that i dea ,, the hiv virus will not live for more than minuts i a dried blood  ,, but i read somthing  opposit ,, that's mean hiv can live and be infectiouse for some days and maybe more than one week even if the blood is dried
is that right
thank you all

I urge you to read the welcome thread on this site. ALL the information you need to know about HIv transmission vectors is right there.

You do not get HIv from the incident you described.
