Hi thank you for the question. Without knowing more about your sexual encounters there isn’t much we can tell you. The best thing to do would be to have a full sexual health screening as they will be able to give you conclusive answers in terms of STI’s and HIV.

I loss so much weight and I had sex on 3march 2018 what is the course

Hi, thanks for your question. Weight loss could be due to a range of things and is not necessarily due to HIV infection. If you are concerned about your recent weight loss, it’s best to discuss this with a doctor. If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to get in touch!

I touched girl vagina and fingered after that i touched my penis and masturbate where i will get hiv

Hi, thanks for your question. What you have described would be considered safe for HIV transmission. For HIV transmission to occur, fluid containing enough of the virus needs to enter your bloodstream. Skin to skin contact and mutual masturbation are both considered safe for HIV transmission. If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Is it possible to catch HIV from a guy if his pre-cum makes contact with my penis and anus opening (during mutual masturbation/frottage but not penetrative sex)? Basically he rubbed our genitals together and used the same hand on himself and me. I'm worried as I can't be sure of his status and don't know whether the risk is enough to require PEP.

Hi, thanks for your question! In terms of HIV risk, what you have described would be considered low risk. Nevertheless, if you are concerned about the encounter, it might be a good idea to visit a sexual health clinic to discuss any concerns with a doctor, nurse or counsellor. If based in NSW, you can call the Sexual Health Infolink on 1800 451 624 to speak to a nurse and/or find your nearest clinic. If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Last night I had sex and during sex my condom was break. This is my first time that condom was broke. And she refused any hiv infection. She is a professional sex worker. Is there any chance to get infection of hiv. Pls suggest me

Hi, thanks for your question! There are a range of factors that could affect whether this encounter would be considered risky. If you are concerned about this encounter, it’s best to speak to a doctor or visit a sexual health clinic to discuss what your options are. If based in NSW, you can call the Sexual Health Infolink on 1800 451 624 to speak to a sexual health nurse and/or find your nearest clinic.

I gave unprotected oral sex to a sex worker, I'm really worried that I have caught HIV. I went to a sexual health clinic and they advised that there was no need for me to have a HIV test based on this. However, even after this I am still worried, what shall I do?

Hi, thanks for your question. In terms of HIV risk, oral sex is considered safe, regardless of who you did it with. For HIV transmission to occur, fluid containing enough of the virus (such as blood or semen) needs to enter your bloodstream. Oral sex is therefore very low risk. Other, easily treated STIs can be transmitted via oral sex, so getting tested is still important if you are having any kind of sex. We recommend getting tested at least twice per year (more often if you are having a lot of sex). While being informed about HIV risk is important, if you are finding your anxiety related to HIV transmission becoming unmanageable, talk to your doctor or sexual health nurse about these feelings. A referral to a counselling service or similar can go a long way in unpacking stress related to HIV transmission. If you are based in NSW, the Sexual Health Infolink is a great first point of contact. Their number is 1800 451 624. If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to get in touch!

Whether fucking an HIV positive person only causes AIDS or fucking more persons who are not suffering from HIV also causes AIDS? ( NOTE : In two cases fucking without a condom )

Hi, thanks for your question. It is only possible to acquire HIV from an HIV positive person. It is not possible to get HIV from someone who is HIV negative, regardless of how many HIV negative people you you have sex with or how often. Unless using other HIV prevention strategies, fucking without condoms is generally considered risky in terms of HIV transmission. There are certain factors that can affect the level of risk in terms of HIV. For example, being the bottom (receptive partner) is more risky than being the top (insertive partner). If the HIV positive person is on treatment, the risk is reduced, and if they have what we call an undetectable viral load (UVL), then there is effectively no risk of HIV transmission. You can find out more about UVL here: https://endinghiv.org.au/treat-early/about-undetectable/ When using an HIV prevention tool such as condoms, PrEP (find out more about PrEP here: https://endinghiv.org.au/stay-safe/prep/), or UVL, then the amount of partners you are having sex with as well as their HIV status is not really relevant in terms of the risk to yourself, because you are protected from HIV. The other thing to bear in mind is that AIDS and HIV are two separate things. It's not possible to get AIDS from an HIV positive person. It's only possible to acquire HIV, which can lead to AIDS when left untreated. If you have any further questions don't hesitate to get in touch!

The early hiv symptoms, does it occurs at once or once in a while

Hi, thanks for your question. In terms of the symptoms of HIV, these can manifest in a variety of ways and will not be the exact same experience for every person. For some people, there is one period where symptoms are present, for others it is recurring, and some people will experience no symptoms at all after becoming HIV positive. If you are concerned about any symptoms you may be experiencing, it’s best to speak to a doctor or visit a sexual health clinic. If based in NSW, you can call the Sexual Health Infolink on 1800 451 624 to ask questions and/or find your nearest sexual health centre.

Hi, I met an escort few days ago. She was touching herself while i was masturbating. At some point she touched my penis and put a finger (maybe for 15-30 seconds) at the entrance of my urethra (a little inside) with the same hand she was masturbating. My concern is that she could had put some of her vaginal secretions inside my urethra. Is there any risk for HIV? We can read that no case have ever been reported but i dont understand how it can be measured. For example if someone get infected but always use condoms, are contacts with secretions studied or the conclusion is that it is due to a condom failure with no further researches?

Hi, thanks for your question. In terms of HIV risk, what you have described is relatively low risk for HIV transmission. Nevertheless, there is still some risk. If you are concerned, it’s best to speak to a doctor or visit a sexual health clinic. We recommend getting tested every 6-12 months (more often if you are having a lot of sex). If you’re based in NSW, you can call the Sexual Health Infolink on 1800 451 624 to find your nearest testing site. If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to get in touch.
