Title: Blood on sparring session
Post by: Paranoman on June 06, 2022, 03:21:01 pm
Hello. 3 months ago, i was in a gym club for praticing jiu-jitsu. I sparred (rolling not punches or kicks) with a Guy and we Both had kimono Gi for about 3 minutes. During the sparring i cut his finger with my nail and AT the end of the session, je was bleeding a litte bit and i notices there was blood on my GI and a little bit on my hand.

I immediatly went to the bathroom to wash and check my face. There were no blood, only on my hand and i dont remember having cuts.

Is it a risk sir?

I did a test 47 days layer with a veine( blood drawn) and it came back négative. Thé test was eclia on cobas e 411. It was only mentionned no antibodies but nothing about agp.

I dont know if i have to test again or if it is conclusive.

When i search on Google they Say cobas e 411 is a 4 génération test but on my result, it was written only antibodies not present

Hiya,

Read your post three times, you had no HIV risk from the events posted here.
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, with no exceptions. Consider talking to your healthcare provider about PrEP as an additional layer of protection against HIV

Keep in mind that some sexual practices described as safe in terms of acquiring HIV still pose a risk for other easier acquired STIs. So please do get tested at least yearly for STIs, including but not limited to HIV, and more frequently if condomless 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

During the sparring, he put his end back to my head where i had some acné, i did not checker if there were blood. Actually, i did not think about it in the moment. But there were blood not only some drops sir.


With my test at 47, is it conclusive AT 100 percent? I am sorry if i disturb with these questions, i am very noob in this field

It's not an HIV risk to you. This was conclusive even without testing.

Acne, spots, rashes, skin issues, scraps, day to day wounds, cuts etc aren't a route for you to aquire HIV.

I'm not willing to pretend what you are posting is an HIV risk regardless of how stressed or anxious you are, as doing so would be a disservice towards you and the community.

Time to more on with your life and put these irrational fears behind you

What you posted isn't an HIV risk and didn't require any HIV testing.

As for the unrelated question about ordering tests for other people. Let them consult with their doctor about their HIV /STI risks or they can order tests themselves if they so wish, no need for you to be involved.
