Hi sir good morning, I would like to know any chance to STD,STI,HIV from receiving the handjob in the massage parlour lady? Can you kindly explaine please?

Hi, Thanks for your question. The risk of HIV being transmitted through a hand job is zero. For other STIs, this can be different if hands have come into contact with infected bodily fluids and then around your genitals. However, these are easily treatable. We recommend to everyone who is sexually active to have regular sexual health check-ups with their doctor or local sexual health clinic. If you live in NSW, you can find the nearest place to get tested here: https://endinghiv.org.au/test-often/where-to-get-tested/. If you have any more sexual health questions, you can call the Sexual Health Infolink at 1800 451 624 where a sexual health nurse can answer your questions over the phone.

Does HIV test after 8 months, and again after a month later gives conclusive results?

Hi, Thanks for your question. Tests for HIV can have a window period of between 2 weeks and 3 months depending on the test. This is the period of time it takes for a reactive result to appear in the test after being exposed to HIV. We also recommend confirming with the medical centre that provides you your test what their window periods are. You can read more about testing and the window period on our website here: https://endinghiv.org.au/test-often/all-about-testing/. A HIV test at 8 months and at 9 months (a month later) sits outside the window period. This means that the results you’ve received from these test are conclusive for your HIV status. If you’ve been sexually active recently, you will need to get tested again outside of the window period to get a conclusive result. If you have any more sexual health questions, you can call the Sexual Health Infolink at 1800 451 624 where a sexual health nurse can answer your questions over the phone.

Jack Norman is saying that receiving oral sex is no risk but other sources(sites) are mentioning some risk is involved if gum is bleeding.Kindly confirm

Hi, Thanks for getting in touch. Yes, the risk of HIV transmission through oral sex is considered very low to no risk. This risk can be increased if there is cumming in the mouth and there are cuts, ulcers, bleeding gums or other STIs present. But even in these cases it is still regarded as low risk. You can greatly reduce the risk of HIV transmission if you are using an effective HIV prevention strategy. Condoms, pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) and undetectable viral load (UVL) are highly effective HIV prevention strategies. You can find more information on these strategies and how to access them on our website here: https://endinghiv.org.au/stay-safe/ However, the transmission of other STIs such as gonorrhoea or chlamydia can be different during oral sex, which are easily treatable. If you are sexually active, we recommend having routine sexual health check-ups with your doctor or local sexual health clinic 4 times a year. If you live in NSW, you can find the nearest place to get tested here: https://endinghiv.org.au/test-often/where-to-get-tested/ If you have any more sexual health questions, you can call the Sexual Health Infolink at 1800 451 624 where a sexual health nurse can answer your questions over the phone.

I tested for hiv combo or in short 4th generation test by blood withdrawal from the vein on the 28th day and the results are negative, is this conclusive and can I be relieved about this? Thank you for your time

Hi, Thanks for your question. Tests for HIV can have a window period of between 2 weeks and 3 months depending on the test. This is the period of time it takes for a reactive result to appear in the test after being exposed to HIV. You can read more about testing and the window period on our website here: https://endinghiv.org.au/test-often/all-about-testing/. This means that your test at 28 days can possibly still be within the window period and your negative result may not be conclusive for your HIV status. We recommend contacting the medical centre that provided you your test to ask them what the window period of their HIV test is, and if your results are conclusive. If your test happened within the window period, you will have to get tested again after the period. If you have any more sexual health questions, you can call the Sexual Health Infolink at 1800 451 624 where a sexual health nurse can answer your questions over the phone.

Hi, I have did sex with unknown boy. What is risk level

Hi, Thanks for your question. If you had anal or frontal penetrative sex with a person who’s HIV status is unknown and you did not use an effective HIV prevention strategy (condoms, pre-exposure prophylaxis or undetectable viral load), this would be considered high risk for HIV transmission. You can also find a Risk Calculator on our website here: https://endinghiv.org.au/stay-safe/risk-calculator/ If you have engaged in high risk sex and have possibly been exposed to HIV, you should consider post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP). PEP is 4 week course of anti-HIV treatment that people can take after possible exposure to HIV to prevent infection. PEP must be started within 72 hours of possible exposure for it to be effective and can be found at emergency hospital departments or at sexual health clinics. You can also go to the Get Pep website (https://www.getpep.info/) or call the PEP Hotline at 1800 737 669 (1800 PEP NOW) where you can talk to someone over the phone about your risk and where you can access PEP. We recommend seeking further medical advice from a doctor or health professional who specialises in HIV.

Two days before I gave hand jobs ejaculate time she comes to veryclose her mouth. Am not sure my penis touch tongue or lips

Hi, Thanks for your question. Having your penis touch another person’s tongue or lips is not how HIV can be transmitted. In fact, oral sex is considered very low to no risk for HIV transmissions. However, this risk may be different for other STIs if you are coming in contact with infected bodily fluids. We recommend to anyone who is sexually active to have routine sexual health check-ups with their doctor or local sexual health clinic. If you live in NSW, you can find the nearest place to get tested here: https://endinghiv.org.au/test-often/where-to-get-tested/

I had an HIV screening 73 days after my last sexual contact and another one 10 days later on the 87 day mark. They both came back negative. Are these conclusive results?

Hi, Thanks for your question. Tests for HIV can have a window period of between 2 weeks and 3 months depending on the test. This is the period of time it takes for a reactive result to appear in the test after being exposed to HIV. You can read more about testing and the window period on our website here: https://endinghiv.org.au/test-often/all-about-testing/. This means that your tests at 73 days and 87 days could possibly sit inside the window period depending on the test. We recommend contacting the medical centre that provided you your HIV test to confirm what their window periods are and if your results are conclusive for your HIV status. If you got tested within the window period, you will need to get tested again after the window period. If you have any more sexual health questions, you can call the Sexual Health Infolink at 1800 451 624 where a sexual health nurse can answer your questions over the phone.

Hello. I suffered sexual abuse 3 months ago. I was only able to tell my parents 3 weeks later, in which I a couple days later got tested for HIV 4th generation, it came back negative. I redid the test 3 weeks later, at 2 months, which was also negative. I once again did the test at 94 days after the exposure and it was negative. They were all 4th generation tests. Can I be confident that I’m not infected by HIV or do I still need to worry about getting tested once again? Thank you.

Can you get hiv if you just Taste just a little bit of cum and you one canker sore

Hi, That’s a good question. Although oral sex is considered very low to no risk for HIV transmission, the risk increases if a person cums into a mouth where cuts or sores are present. Semen is one of the bodily fluids that carries HIV (along with blood, anal fluids, front hole or vaginal fluids and breast milk). For HIV to be transmitted, it requires one of these bodily fluids from a person living with HIV who is not on treatment to enter the bloodstream of a HIV negative person. A canker sore can be an entry point for HIV to enter your body. To answer your question, tasting a little bit of cum or having it in your mouth with a sore present poses a possible risk for HIV transmission. However, there a ways to greatly reduce this risk! By using an effective HIV prevention strategy such as pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) or undetectable viral load (UVL), you can greatly reduce the risk of HIV transmissions! You can read more about these strategies on our website here: https://endinghiv.org.au/stay-safe/. If you have more questions, you can also call the Sexual Health Infolink at 1800 451 624 where a sexual health nurse can answer your questions over the phone.
