really,

You are more likely to walk out of your house today and find a winning multi-million dollar winning lottery ticket lying in the gutter than become infected through your encounter. Seriously.

Having said that, 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.

Thanks everyone for your replies.  I just wanted to find out if marijuana causes late seroconversion?  What i mean to say is if you smoke marijuana everyday, does the 3 month window period apply or do you have to test out to 6 months?
thanks

Can anyone show me a picture of a torn/broke condom?  I can not find it anywhere on the web.  How would a tore/broken condom look like if you were holding the rim of the condom and dangling it so that the tip would be facing downwards??

Thanks Rapid.

I know that a broken condom looks like a hula dress when you are holding the rimm and the tip of the condom facing  towards the sky.....then it droops like a hula skirt.

But what if your holding the rimm and the tip of the condom facing towards the floor?  It won't look like a hula dress/skirt anymore.  Would it not look like a normal intact condom?  if not then what would it resemble?

I guess what i would like to know is if a failed condom was dangled from the rimm and the tip facing the floor, would it be easy to distinguish that it is a failed condom or is it difficult to judge.

thanks again.

really,

If your condom was broken or torn, you would have noticed it when you took it off. A broken condom is NOT subtle. It is VERY obvious.

I've yet to see someone who HAD NO RISK such as yourself go on to test positive after a six week negative.

If you have a hiv transmission or testing concern of your own, please start your own thread to discuss it. Otherwise, do not post in the threads of others in this (Am I Infected) forum.

Please read the Welcome Thread before posting again. Thank you for your cooperation.

Hello Rapid, Ann, Andy, and everyone i've missed.

I took my 8 week test---> it was a rapid test and got the results in like 5 minutes.  It came out negative and I just wanted to let all of you know this.
Is that a good sign?
Again I had protected sex, unprotected oral ( i was insertive), and she rimmed me (unprotected)

any thoughts and opinions from any members would be much appreciated.

thank you

You had no risk for HIV.

You're kidding, right? No, of course you're not. Anytime you test negative it's always a good sign. I know that and you do too. And you were never at risk to begin with so your testing negative is not a surprise to anyone.

Thanks Andy for your reply.  I do feel much better.  There is something i didn't mention because i thought maybe i'm overreacting or again worrying needlessly.  When I went to take the rapid test, blood was drawn from my right arm.  The thing was i saw a mark on the lady's glove just before she withdrew blood from me.  I don't know if it was a blood mark, but worries me is that after she took the syringe out of my arm she offered me the cotton to hold on my to the place where she just withdrew blood.  I took the cotton and starting wiping up and down the area where blood was leaking from my arm ( i did not just press down on the wound)...........i think that mark on the lady's glove had touched the area on my forearm where blood was withdrawn.  I don't know why i didn't say anything, but I just blocked it out of my head and was eager to find out the  rapid test result which was right infront me. 
What do you think? I am not even sure that mark was blood.
Has anyone been infected with HIV in this manner?

NO!

Cmon.  You go to get TESTED and you think you got infected.  Enough of this please.

Even if it was the most virulent infectious strain of HIV ever seen on the planet earth you had NO risk of contracting it at all!  

I suggest you may need to seek the help of a mental health professional to help you.  It is way beyond our scope.

Sorry for going on about this......but if you could just help me out on this:

Even if this mark on her latex glove was blood, and it did touch my wound (where she withdrew blood), their is still no way of contracting HIV in that situation right?  My understanding is that it has to be blood to blood contact in a matter of milliseconds......not 10 seconds a part.  Am I making sense?

sorry for posting this but i have met someone I really like, and I do not want to tell her about all of this if i don't have too.

thanks everyone.

Rapid I know.  But please can you just answer my post.  I have kept away for long and I intend to continue to stay away, but because I have met someone I just want some scientific logic on way I could not get infected via the latex glove with blood.

sorry Rapid, you've been so helpful to me.  Honestly I will not post again, and if I do then give me a time out, but I just need reasoning if or big IF that mark on the latex was blood and it touched my open wound but not right away....in a matter of 5 to 10 seconds then....is it possible to contract HIV in that way?

There is no scientific way possible you contracted HIV from what you have described!

It has NEVER (look up the definition of NEVER) EVER happened this way.  You wont be the first.

You need to seek the help of a mental health professional to help you with this.  Don't scare the new person away with unfounded fears.  Do yourself a favor, let this go.

Hi Everyone,

I took a 14 week HIV test from my last incident with a sex worker and it came out negative!  I took an HIV 1 & 2 Antibody test--->Axsym HIV Ag/Ab Combo Assay System

Is this the Elisa test?

Am all clear or is their another strain of HIV to test for in Africa?

I tested for HIV 1 and 2.

thank you all for your support.

Really,

It doesn't matter what type of antibody test you had performed. You didn't have a risk for HIV in the first place so the negative result is conclusive.

You don't have HIV infection.

Wouldn't it have occured to you to ask the source of your test about its legitimacy?

In any case, yes, you have reliably tested negative for HIV. Period. End of story.

Hi Aidsmeds experts,

I wanted to say thank you for helping me a long all my problems.  Thank you so much.  I do have a quick question I want to ask..........again the setting is Africa.  I went to get a hair cut today......and the lady was buzzing my neck with a clipper and she cut me.  I did not feel it bleeding but their was a burning red line where the clpper went over.  When I got home i put some perfume on it to disinfect the line cut, and it burned me like hell.  The place where i got the hair cut did not have a disinfectant holder where combs and brushes are normally put (like in N. America).  The clipper that she used on me was just lying on the table when I walked into the salon.  When I sat down I saw the clippers sitting on the table, and she picked that clipper up to clean my neck area.  That is when I felt a sharp pain when she used the clipper on the left side of my neck.  Again I do not know if it bled, but it was a sharp burning sensation.  And when i got home to inspect it.....I saw a brigt red line (the line shape of the clipper) which burned a lot. 
So my question is this:  Is this a HIV concern?
                                 I know those clippers were not disinfected.

I'm kind of freaking out and checking this red line cut on my neck in the mirror every 10 minutes.  Can I let this go or do i need to test for HIV?

thanks everyone

You will not be infected with HIV by a hair clipper.

I should think that by now you'd understand the vectors for transmission. This is very much not one of them.

Is this your one-year AIDSmeds anniversary post or what? Well guess what, I'm giving you an anniversary present - another Time Out.

You've been here for at least a year now and your first posting was one year ago today. If you haven't learned by now that you're not going to become infected with hiv while getting your haircut (unless you are simultaneously having unprotected anal or vaginal intercourse) then there's not much more we can do for you here.

As this is your second time out, it will be for 56 days. Do not create a new account to get around your time out because if you do, you will be permanently banned from these forums.

Hey everyone,

Haven't been back for a while.  I just had something happened today, please let me know if their is anything to worry about in regards to HIV infection.

I went with a friend today at a clinic in Nairobi Kenya to get his HIV test done.  While waiting for him to finish I was reading a book.  As I waited I picked up a pen that was just recently used by one of the test administerer (health worker) and started writing in my bood a note at the back.  I put the pen in my mouth and on my lips while thinking about what I wanted to write.  I know so stupid.  I realized this after 3 minutes doing this, that I should take it out of my mouth immediately.  When I looked at the pen I noticed a lot of marks and dark spots other then the usual color of the pen on the parts that were in my mouth and on my lips.
I am thinking these marks are blood drops, dirts, or stains and blood stains but I can not be absolutely sure.  What if it was HIV infected blood and I put it directly in my mouth and on my lips?   Can HIV be transmitted this way?  Blood to mucuos member (mouth and lips) contact? Please anyone reply Andy, Ann?

I've merged your threads. Use this same thread and don't start any new ones.

You've been around the block here many times. So once again you're bringing up another incident with absolutely no basis in HIV science. You ought to know better at this point. Really.

There's nothing to discuss about HIV in this situation. HIV isn't your problem. But you do seem to have too much time on your hands.

I'm guessing the pen had to be dripping with HIV + blood for it to be a concern right?
I just remember seeing a lot of spots, orange/maroonish.....even if it was HIV blood (like one drop and not dried yet) and I put that in my mouth and on my lips--->would that cause for concern in regards to HIV infection??

Really,

I see you're back hot on the heels of your last time out. This isn't about hiv, it's about something much deeper where you're concerned. Please, for your own sake, see your doctor and ask for a therapy referral. We cannot help you with your extreme anxiety here.

Thanks Ann, I have not waited until my time out was finished.  I never needed aidsmeds in this timeout time, because nothing happened.  Hope you can believe me.

thank you

Can anyone please answer that question?  If there was a drop of blood on that pen and that I put it into my mouth and on my lips, could I get HIV in this way?

really,

Of course it's not a risk. You've already been told that.

You've reached the end of the line here mate. I'm sorry, but we just aren't equipped to help you with your needs. Please find yourself a mental health care professional to help you work through your extreme anxiety. We cannot do that for you here.

You have been warned and timed out and warned and timed out and warned again. This is it - you're now permanently banned.

Good luck getting the face-to-face help you need.

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

HIV is certainly character-building. It's made me see all of the shallow things we cling to, like ego and vanity. Of course, I'd rather have a few more T-cells and a little less character. Randy Shilts
