This was a totally non-risk situation for HIV.

Don't you have anything better to do with your time than shopping around on the net to indulge in this kind of drama? Get on with your life. Period.

To Andy,
I do not want so. But until now i can not know why i was not at a risk ? after reading hiv informations and what Dr HHH said . . It made me nervous.
To  rapidrod :
I think i have time to tease or do anything for this ? Oh no, i tried to get it out my mind . But i could not why what i read about hiv and all is said i could get it . I only want to know so . someone told that oral sex is able to have risk but someone said no . who is right and who is wrong ? i do not know then how can i get out of stress.?
I am a woman and i want to have baby and never want to give hiv to husband ...then i worry about this ? that is wrong ? i only want to know hiv for sure then i can get protection for husband until i can have a test for sure ...that is wrong ?

I'm going to respond just once again and then you need to stop coming back with more worries about your non-risk incident. Even IF the blood from the previous client(s) or the person working on you had been present, HIV does not get passed in that manner. HIV is a fragile virus. It doesn't get passed on the surfaces of scissors, tweezers and other environmental surfaces. HIV needs the kind of receptive setting which unprotected vaginal or anal intercourse provides, not in anyway that you are worrying about.

You are worrying needlessly. Get on with your life.

quest,

You've already been told that hiv cannot be transmitted from environmental objects.

This forum is not the appropriate setting for you to address your hiv phobia. You need to see a counselor face-to-face for that. If you keep posting about these far-fetched, no risk scenarios, you will be given a time out.

notest, knock it off. You were never at risk. You were never at risk from getting your nails done. You didn't have a risk from a motorcycle wreck. You didn't have a risk from a hooker. Thats just a few of your questions you have asked.
Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result or no-risk situation, will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). If you continue to post excessively after one Time Out, you may be given a second Time Out which will last eight weeks. There is no third Time Out - it is a permanent ban. The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.

quest,

When I answered you earlier, I knew you were talking about touching blood and I knew you said you had a cut. I told you that you have already been told you cannot become infected from blood on environmental surfaces. A table in a church is an environmental surface.

I cannot see this going anywhere. You obviously have an hiv phobia and this is not the appropriate setting for you to deal with that.

I'm giving you that time out you've been warned about. Do not attempt to create a new account to get around your time out because if you do, you will be permanently banned.

Quest,

No, I cannot show you that hiv can live in water and be active - because it doesn't. Hiv is very fragile and does not remain viable and able to infect outside the human body. You've been told this repeatedly.

You don't seem to have learned anything about HIV from what has been said to you or from having been given a Time Out. Ann told you a while back that you ought to get professional help to deal with your unfounded fears about HIV.

We can't deal with that need of yours in this setting. At your present rate of more of the same old questions you need to know you're on the way to being banned from this site. See a counselor, a therapist or other professional and get some help with your real problem.

That's called a "band aid" that you had on your finger.

And as Rod has told you, that was NOT a risky incident. You are worrying without any cause in HIV science. HIV is a fragile virus and not easily transmitted.

You need some professional help with your HIV concerns. We can't provide that for you here.

See a therapist or other such person to discuss your concerns.

At the rate you are going you are going to get another Time Out or be banned from the site.

More no risk events. Which you should know by now from everything that has been said to you.

You need a kind of help about HIV which we cannot provide here.

And you are going to end up getting another time out if you keep this up.

Quest,

He means you keep coming back here with situations that present absolutely NO RISK of hiv infection. We've repeatedly told you that hiv cannot be transmitted from objects in the environment. You don't seem to be listening.

I'm giving you that time out you've been warned about. As this is your second time out, it will last for 56 days. Do not attempt to create a new account to get around your time out because if you do, you will be permanently banned.
