Khan,

Take your caps-lock off. Not only is a wall of text written in ALL CAPS difficult to read, but on the internet it's considered yelling. Please don't do it again.

Yes. It's just a story. Nothing you're worrying about was a risk for hiv infection.

1. No.

2. It doesn't matter. Hiv is not transmitted through the skin or through your so-called "microabrasions".

3. You are at NO risk for hiv infection.

4. Your needle puncture wound would have started healing in ten minutes, never mind ten days.

5. You do not need to test over this NO RISK incident.

Hiv is transmitted through unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse, through sharing drug injecting equipment and sometimes from mother to baby while in the womb or during birth. And that's IT.

Hiv is a fragile, difficult to transmit virus that is primarily transmitted INSIDE the human body, as in unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse where the virus never leaves the confines of the two bodies.

Once outside the body, small changes in temperature, and pH and moisture levels all quickly damage the virus and render it unable to infect. This is why any blood in a syringe that's been lying around in a waste container isn't going to be any threat to you. The fluid was only rubbed on your skin, it wasn't injected into you.

When people share needles to inject drugs, it's a risk for hiv infection when they share them immediately. This is NOT what happened in your situation.

You have NOT had a risk.

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI. Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

Anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results.

Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv. Some of the other STIs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

Hello ann ,

Just want a reassurance...

Q1)If hiv+ Blood comes in contact with microabrasion of my skin can i get infected??

Q2)How much hiv+ blood required to infect someone through deep cut on skin ?

Q3)Blowing air from my mouth to hiv+ blood on my microabrasion creates enough pressure to allow them to enter my blood stream?

My partner wants to have sex with me and i dont want to pass any deadly virus in any way or anyhow ..

Sorry for being annoying and a moron....

Thank you so much and god bless us all and may bring some peace into our troubled world ..!

Khan,

1. NO. Hiv can only infect a very few, very specific types of cells and these cells are not found on the surface of the skin or in microabrasions.

2. Pints. There would have to be blood all over and it would have to pretty much go directly from the other person's body into a DEEP cut on your body.

3. No way. Dream on.

You have NOT had a risk for hiv infection!

If you read the Welcome Thread before posting like you're supposed to, you will have read the following posting guideline:

Quote

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.


Please consider yourself warned!

Khan,

How many times do you have to be told that hiv is NOT transmitted through the skin or microabrasions? It doesn't matter whether or not you washed your skin afterwards.

You did NOT have a risk for hiv infection. End of story.

(Taken from a thread where you should NOT have been posting, and you'd know that if you read the Welcome thread like I suggested.)

I am not authrorized to answer you but dude you are worrying needlessly .. And you are posting this thread on EVERY HIV FORUMS LIKE MEDHELP , HEALTHBOARDS AND SO ON...

Hiv is a very fragile virus and its not easy to catch. And the scenario you describe is totally consider normal and HIV is not a concern ...!!

No if's and but's YOU ARE SUFFERING FROM HIV OCD AND IT SEEMS ITS GOING OOC ( OUT OF CONTROL ) .

On a personal note, please stop worrying and moveon because noone here to help with your mental problems.

With Regards,
Khan

Khan,

As if you're in any position to give anyone hiv advice. News flash - YOU'RE NOT!!!

For your blatant disregard of our rules, I'm giving you that time out you were 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.

Sorry for posting in other thread. I apologise.

Ann ,

I have told you that my wound was 10 days old but it was ONLY ONE DAY old :-( .

I was scared that if i told you one day old wound then you will tell me that it is a risk but i was stupid and lied to you :-(

Is one day old wound a risk ?

I went for hiv testing .. For peace of mind here are my results..

31 days after exposure HIV CMIA COMBO AB/AG TEST ----------- NEGATIVE.

41 days tested with TRIDOT AND ELISA -------------- NEGATIVE.

Shall i move on ? Or should i retest at 3 months for peace of my mind ?

Thank you so much .. god bless all..

Khan,

NO RISK.

You are conclusively hiv negative and you do not need further testing. You can continue to test if you want, but you're only going to collect more negative results.

If you read the Welcome Thread before posting like you're supposed to, you will have read the following posting guideline:

Quote

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).

The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.


It will be your second time out.

Please consider yourself warned!
