Swiss,

You're not going to become infected this way. People who share needles to inject drugs inject any left-over blood in the syringe DIRECTLY into their blood vessels IMMEDIATELY after the syringe has been used by the other person.

What you're dealing with is a slight prick and there is no need for concern.

Hello Ann

ok thank you for the nice replay.

But Fact was:

I dont know when but she must make a injection before i came to here.

Sorry my english is not good i hope you understand me

When i was there she plays with here hands and then id happens really fast the needle "picks" my Hand and then blood comes out of my hand.

What if the Blood in the needle go to my body when de Neelde was inside my hand for seconds?

Swiss,

If blood was coming out, how could it be going in? You're worrying unnecessarily.

Hi Ann

   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.

Ok read it last question and i say nothing more.

Teak and Ann

on medhelp.com i request a HIV Specialist Doctor, i dont know why but he tells there i need PEP and he write it was a high Risk Situation :-\

He write:

At the same time however the transmission rate is high enough that if you sincerely believe that she could have HIV you should consider taking PEP

But the time is over.

Why did he say this? I cant believe it.Does he dont unterstand me?

I hope you can unterstand my bad english

Swiss,

Unless she used that syringe IMMEDIATELY before you got stuck, I'm still saying it wasn't a risk.

If you get the PCR test done, make sure it's an RNA PCR, not a DNA PCR. The DNA test returns a lot of false positive results. Only the RNA test is approved for diagnostic purposes.

I fully expect you to come out of this ok and hiv negative.

I don't know anything about insurance in Switzerland. You should cross that bridge if and when you come to it. I doubt you will.

Hello all


ok i have phone with the laboratory they tell me i can do the RNA PCR , i will do it in 3 Weeks, its really expensive ::)

They said normaly its for People with HIV to control how much Virus is in the blood, if im Positive it must come out Positive because in the first 2-4 Weeks the Virus Quantity is the highest so they have told me.

Given what you have reported we still expect you to test negative.

As for the waiting period, you can do it the hard way and drive yourself crazy or you can do it the better way and make a real effort to focus your attention on other things in your life. And don't bother saying oh no, I am too upset to think about other things. Because I can tell you that kind of drama is not going to fly here.

Ultimately we expect you to come out of this ok.

A no risk situation is a surefire negative. YOu cannot get HIV in the manner you described. Please learn how HIV is transmitted.

"Many people, especially in the gay community, turn to oral sex as a safer alternative in the age of AIDS. And with HIV rates rising, people need to remember that oral sex is safer sex. It's a reasonable alternative."

You were never at risk to begin with. A negative result has never been in doubt except in your mind.

You need to know that you can't keep coming back here indefinitely with more doubts and fears over a no risk incident. If you continue to do that you're going to find yourself getting a Time Out for 28 days. Consider yourself warned.

HIV is not your problem.
