Can HIV transmitted through breast milk in adults
« on: December 29, 2014, 11:03:29 AM »

I had  protected sex with a woman, while doing I drunk her breast milk.
After 4 days I got tongue infection, and after 6 days I got strep throat, skin allergy, nausea, sickness, ulcer in the mouth, red spots on tongue, coated mouth, sweating on hand palms and feet. And after 10 days I am feeling chills and body heat.
I am now in 4th week of after exposure.
I am getting pink coloured blotches and pimples on the skin.
Is this the symptom of HIV?
I am getting burning skin on the knee of leg just above and just below.
And also above knee small portion of skin transformed in to pink with pink pimples on it.
I am so worried of HIV. Do I need HIV test?

If I have any infenctions in the stomach, then also no risk please suggest.

That means I got effected with HIV, my parents are planning for my marriage with in 2 months.
Please kindly reply.

HIV is not transmitted from breast milk unless you are an infant with a developing immune system, it poses no risk to adults and there have not a been a case where an adult was infected that way . HIV is transmitted from

Unprotected anal and vaginal sex
Mother to child during or shortly after childbirth
Sharing IV drug rigs with and infected person

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.

Although you did not have a risk and do not need to test for this specific incident , 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!

Hi Jeff,

Thank you for your response.
I am not sure on it, if that was breast milk or blood came from her nipple.
I suck for few seconds.
Why am I asking is, I have acidity and gas problem in my stomach.
If that was blood, then do I have a risk?
Kindly please respond.

Are you kidding ? You cant not get HIV from breast milk if you are an adult ... I cant make it any clearer than that . It does not matter about blood in the milk, its not a risk to adults, period . You have been told three times now so maybe this time you will get it .
