hi I had protected oral sex few days ago, I felt her tooth on my pennis couple of times. I didn't notice any leakage. what's my risks for STDs including HIV. Thanks

Hi, Thanks for your question. Condoms are a highly effective barrier for the transmission of HIV and most STIs. Without condoms, oral sex is still considered very low to no risk for HIV transmission. However, this is different for STIs. We recommend to anyone who is sexually active to have regular sexual health check-ups with their doctor or local sexual health clinic.

Is it possible for infected with aids show the signs immediately after two week

Hi, Thanks for your question. A person cannot be infected with AIDS but can be infected with HIV. AIDS refers to the range of specific illness that a person living with HIV who is not on treatment may get when their immune system becomes weakened. Symptoms for HIV infections vary from person to person and generally start appearing within the first 1-2 months. You can read about early symptoms of HIV here: https://endinghiv.org.au/blog/7-symptoms-of-hiv-early-stages/.

Hi DR. I did sex with massage girl using two condom for 1 min. Two days later I did HIV AB test for her and she was negative What is the probability to gain HIV if she was still recent infection however the condom was not broken and the sex was only for 1 min

Hi, Thanks for your question. When used correctly, condoms are highly effective in preventing HIV transmission. HIV tests have a window period of up to 3 months. This means it takes up to 3 months between the time of the test and possible exposure for the result to be conclusive. We recommend to anyone who is sexually active to have regular sexual health check-ups with their doctor or local sexual health clinic. For more information, you can call the Sexual Health Infolink at 1800 451 624 where someone can answer your sexual health questions.

She told me to get serology and special serology and CBC done for my satisfaction and the results came negative , these tests were dont about 24 hours post exposure. Till date my doc tells me I cannot get hiv because of this . Pls adv

Hi, Thanks for your question. When used correctly, condoms are highly effective in preventing HIV transmissions. The sexual acts you’ve described would also be considered to have no risk for HIV transmission. We still recommend anyone who is sexually active to have regular sexual health check-ups with their doctor or local sexual health clinic. For more medical advice, we suggest you talk to your doctor or health professional. You can also call the Sexual Health Infolink at 1800 451 624 where someone can answer your questions.

I was in a massage parlor, where I received a hand job from the girl, she was cleaning her vagina with a tissue and I think she a had a vaginal fluid on her hands too, and than again she started hand job. I am worried I might get infected so I went for HIV antibody test it was negative on 15th and 28th day, but I read on internet it might take time to show up. I am worried about this and what are the chances of me getting infected. Please help me. I am very anxious.

Hi, Thanks for your question. HIV antibody tests do have window periods. This is the period of time between the potential exposure of HIV and when the test will give an accurate result, usually 2 to 12 weeks. However, the situation you have described would be considered no risk for HIV transmission. We do recommend anyone who is sexually active to have regular sexual health check-ups with their doctor or local sexual health clinic. For more medical advice, we suggest you talk to your doctor or health professional. You can also call the Sexual Health Infolink at 1800 451 624 where someone can answer your questions.

You can find out your risk here: https://endinghiv.org.au/stay-safe/risk-calculator/ Given the circumstances, we would recommend visiting your local sexual health clinic or doctor and seeking out medical advice.

I had sex with Prostitue. While having sex condom Broke. So she applied 2 new condom. That also broke while having sex at that time we stopped having sex. I was on alcohol. But i did not ejaculate (semen did not come out). After that i wash my penis with dettol & masturbate so that semen will come out. What are the chance of exposure to HIV. I have told this to a doctor he told mi start PEP and after 15 days we will have blood test

Hi, thank you for your question. What you have described would be low risk for HIV. However, as your doctor has advised, given that there is a low risk the best course of action would be to start PEP within 72 hours of potential risk exposure to HIV.
