User :   I need to talk to a HIV/STD specialist....thanks
Doctor :   Hi Dr...
Doctor :   please proced with your query
User :   Hello Doctor...
User :   i am 26 male
User :   i have some particular query on HIV transmission and strip club
Doctor :   ok please proceed
User :   from october last week to december first week of this year i visited a single strip club. i visited the club nearly 1 or 2 times a week. every time i took 1 or 2 lap dances with different girls. previously i dint know that hiv/std can transmit even by semen or vaginal fluids. when i come to know this i totally scared of the infection.
User :   normally i shave my face at morning 9am, and then a hot water bath and then a hot coffee. every time i visited the club at around 2-3pm. before lap dance, normally i had a cold drink. some times my face has shaved cuts (no cuts bigger than 2-3 millimeter across). so there is about 4-5 hours gap for my cuts before a lap dance.i dint noticed any active bleeding for any lap dance on my shaved cuts. in the lap dance i only kissed and/or rubbed my face over the neck, between/on the breasts (not on nipples), some times on butts and thighs (never did that on any sexual parts) on the girl. every lap dance was about 5-10 mins
Doctor :   have u had intercourse with the women ?
User :   what scarring me is what if her vaginal fluids on her butts/thigh or on her body surface or traces of semens from the previous customer to whom she gave a lap dance, come in contact with my shaved cuts. this is extreamly scaring me
User :   i was always in my limits......never kissed any girls....intercourse is far more away
Doctor :   U are compltely safe from HIV
User :   but what about shaved cuts...i read in many website that..... fluids like vaginal fluids, semen or blood transmit hiv/std thorough cuts
Doctor :   but there has t have dierect contact of blood
User :   how long these cuts takes to stop the external infection?
Doctor :   the minor cuts will heal within minutes and will not be the method HIV will be transmitted any way
User :   can u please tell me about cuts and blood stream
Doctor :   there is no relation here
User :   hiv needs blood stream to trammit as i read in net
Doctor :   blood vessles are cappilaries that heal very soon
Doctor :   after the cuts
User :   hiv needs blood stream to trammit as i read in net ....can u pls explain
User :   even on faced cuts.....the blood still comes from nearest blood stream
Doctor :   direct contact with the infected fluid and blood is needed for tranmission
User :   even if single hiv cell enters teh body thro blood vessel or thor any other route..... is its causes hiv infection?
Doctor :   only by blood route
User :   so there is no minimum amount of hiv cells or fluid amount to cause infection?
Doctor :   yes
Doctor :   the infective dose is 300 cells per cc
User :   "infective dose"?? i dint get this
Doctor :   the dose of viruses that is needed for infection to occur = infective dose
User :   what about the hiv virus which may exists on her body surface along with vaginal fluids or semen (not on vagina), on which i rubbed my face with shaved cuts?
Doctor :   hiv does not spread that way
User :   so what about thro eyes and nose or ears?
Doctor :   not at all
User :   i think i rubbed my eyes few times after the lap dance
User :   with my fingers which touches her butts and thigh
Doctor :   HIV is spread only by deep inoculation into deep blood and sexual trasnission
User :   oh k
User :   apart from this..... in the whole dance, she rubbing her vagina with panty, on my hard penis with underwear and thin pant between. after i cummed in my pant, she was still rubbing it for about 5-10 seconds.......... so any risk on this?
User :   i am still shamed and scared from my behavior
Doctor :   no
User :   since my lapdances are multiple time with almost different girls...... do you suggest any hiv/std test?
Doctor :   this anxiety is due to guilt behavior and ther is nothing to be worried about
Doctor :   to be sure, and to relieve yur anziety, you can do a HIV ELISA antibody test after 30 days after the exposure
User :   from a week i am feeling loose motion.... not in liquid form....but only once a day
Doctor :   thats not a ysmptom of HIV
Doctor :   ITS JUST Some bbug u had in your food
User :   can pls tell me about hiv existence out side the body?
Doctor :   HIV is a virus and does not reside outside the body like other bacteria etc
User :   any temperature factors its affected by?
Doctor :   severe heat > 68 degress kills it
User :   cold conditions?
Doctor :   cold doe not kill it
User :   thanks for the information doctor
Doctor :   you are welcome
Doctor :   take care and bye for now
