Hiv risk if any
« on: March 22, 2021, 03:38:37 pm »
Hi thank you for letting me ask questions in this great forum. I had 2 incident;
I had dental procedure in Central America where anesthesia was injected in my gums during the cleaning. My question is it possibble for hiv to survive in anesthesia vials if previos client was infected. Are the vials considered a vacuum after they sre opened?

2nd i went to strip club for a lap dance. It was pretty vigorous and the lady had vaginal secretions i could see so i probably got some in my pant. Is the vaginal secretion once it is on her vagina lips is any hiv inactivated even before it got to my pants?

Thank you

Hiya,

Read your post three times. Nothing mentioned is an HIV risk. Relax and move on with your life.

Here's what you need to know to avoid HIV infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions. Consider talking to your health care provider about taking PrEP going forward as an additional layer of HIV protection.

Keep in mind that some sexual practices which may be described as ‘safe’ in terms of HIV transmission might still pose a risk for transmission of other STI's, so please do get fully tested regularly and at least yearly for all STI's including but not limited to HIV and test more frequently if unprotected intercourse occurs

Also, note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms and the only way of knowing is by testing.

Kind regards

Jim

HIV is fragile and would not be viable to cause infection and the vials are not a vacuum. These concerns also lack several other factors needed to even remotely pose any HIV risk.

Relax and move on with your life.

I already said you had no HIV risk from this and in reply to that question I answered  "HIV is fragile and would not be viable to cause infection and the vials are not a vacuum. These concerns also lack several other factors needed to even remotely pose any HIV risk."

You are focusing on something that is rather irrelevant and I've already answered.
Its simple you can get HIV from any contamination from the vile. Please stop asking and move on with your life.

Hiya.

Lapdance, the fluids you are worried about did not even contain viable HIV to start with. It is the wrong type of vaginal fluids asides from lacking route, being exposed to the environment etc etc etc.

I said it was no HIV with good reason. Sexually HIV is only acquired inside the confines of the human body. an example would be intercourse.

Have you ever heard of this? If she had vaginal infection even secretions from Bartholin gland would have hiv present.

If she had an infection in her vaginal track it would not change anything to your assessment.

If you come back with more about these no HIV risk situations it's going to be considered excessive and lead to a 28-day ban from the forum.

Move on with your life, use condoms for any intercourse and test out of standard routine yearly for STI's & HIV.

Jim.

Hiya.

Getting herpes 2 years ago was not an HIV issue.  Look any sexual contact comes with risks of STI's, condoms to help reduce those risks. The levels of protection for various STI's depends greatly on differences in how the diseases or infections infect.

For example, some infections (Not HIV) are transmitted primarily by skin-to-skin contact, which may infect areas not covered by a condom, such as genital herpes, human papillomavirus [HPV] infection, chancroid etc.

No, just use condoms correctly and constantly and test out of routine yearly as you are sexually active.

Regarding herpes, it is passed on during viral shredding or skin contact with a sore. You can consider taking medication to prevent outbreaks and reduce the risk of passing it on to your partners even when you don't have a visible outbreak.

Ok i understand. Last question whrn i have protected sex my scrotum (balls) is always exposed to vaginal secretions. Is it impossible to get infected if balls are covered with vaginal secretions that are likely to be from cervix?
