User :   is there any possibility of risk.
User :   in terms of hiv.
Doctor :   may i ask you if the condom tore?
User :   no not at was intact infact my semen was on the bottom..100% sure.and 100% sure it did not touch my red part.

User :   second incident sir.
Doctor :   sure tell me
User :   i tried to have anal sex.i inserted my tip with this process condom was inside for 2 seconds as per me but not more than 10 seconds.just half of my tip got touched stool and there was no visible blood.and no deep penitration also just my tip got exposed inside and touched stool.I removed immediatly and washed with soap 4-5 times.How much is the risk sir for hiv or heb b. 2 months has already passed.
Doctor :   there is very little risk
Doctor :   as stool contact will have less than one percent of risk for HIV or hep b
Doctor :   you did a good thing by washing with soap immediately do not worry
User :   in my first incident sir.blood was inside condom and it was on my it ok.
Doctor :   if the condom did not break , the blood is your blood and not your partner's blood
User :   no sir it was her blood it got inside and was on my penis skin.if it was mine then it would have been on base.
Doctor :   you said you were wearing a condom and it did not tear , then how did the contact with blood happen ?
User :   she was in periods and it slipped inside one drop or two.
Doctor :   when it slipped inside had you removed the condom ?
User :   when i noticed it.i removed condom and blood drop on skin dropped into condom
User :   it was on my penis skin
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   i would suggest you to get tested for the STD in that case
User :   does intact skin gives entry to hiv.
User :   because it did not touch my moucous membrane
Doctor :   i would not rule out the chances of a risk involved
Doctor :   since there was contact with blood , i suggest you to check with it
Doctor :   as any contact with blood be it on skin or mucus is not ignored
User :   what test do you recommend
Doctor :   may i know when was this episode ?
User :   70 days 0r may be 75 days
Doctor :   ok , i would rrecommend you do a elisa for HIV and also check for HEPatitis
User :   do you rate this more risky then the condom break
Doctor :   i cannot compare the two ,a s both have equal risk here
User :   are u saying both have less than 1 percent or more
Doctor :   i may not be able to put it in terms of percentage here
Doctor :   but i can only say , yes, there is a risk of getting infected
Doctor :   do you know the status of your partner ?
User :   if you tell me symptoms i can tell u.but he did some lever test they were ok.
User :   are the chances high or low.
Doctor :   when did you do the test ?
Doctor :   chances are not very high , but chances are there
User :   i did my kft,lft test 15 days back they were normal.Also my urine test as i told you.

Doctor :   it will rule out all doubts
User :   when do the heb b symptoms occur
User :   i mean the duration sir.
Doctor :   it occurs in a few weeks of infection to a few months
Doctor :   generally after 3 weeks
User :   have i passed that period for heb b,sypills and other std or still symptoms can occur.
Doctor :   we can expect symptoms by now
Doctor :   but a person may not have symptoms also
Doctor :   i am not telling you to worry, but i am asking you to be careful
User :   sir i have read that spill over blood or body fluid does not permate intact skin.unless you have sore cuts .
Doctor :   just get the tests done
Doctor :   yes , generally it will not
Doctor :   but it is safe to get a test done as we do not rule out the chances at all
User :   sir as i know that women.can you tell me some hiv or heb b symptoms to rule out if she has.
Doctor :   symptoms like weakness, rashes , weight loss , fever, oral ulcers , triedness
Doctor :   all these wil indicate the presence of the infections
User :   she doesent have rashes,oral ulcers.but sometimes fever with shivering.
Doctor :   ok , fever with shivering can be general viral fever too , need not be HIV or hep only
Doctor :   does she have any lesions in the genital regions ?
User :   no i have observed her fo14 months other sex partner
Doctor :   it would be wise to get her tested if possible and you also go for the blood tests
Doctor :   this will keep it safe and free from wory in future
