Brief Answer:
NO HIV

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question.I am Dr Matin and will be answering your question.

HIV can't be diagnosed on the basis of symptoms unless substantiated with a positive report of HIV testing. HIV is transmitted after having sex with infected person, getting HIV infected blood transfused , and having shared HIV infected needles.
In any case I have not heard any HIV patient presenting with 'mucocele'.
So if you don't come under any high risk group, then there is no risk of HIV at all.

Hope this helps.

Actually i had a protected intercourse with a CSW on 1st XXXXXXX 15 and after that i had developed mouth ulcers in and around tongue after two months.
The mucoceles is recurrent and occurs in same place.and also ulcer type breakage in lips.
And no other symptoms and also had a severe tooth infection.
I justt want to wether HiV comes with single or multiple infections?
Amd what about oral problems if infected with HIV

Brief Answer:
NO HIV

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your follow up question.As stated HIV does not come through protected sex (if the condom was not torn or slipped) HIV is a single virus ,and is presented with multiple symptoms ( so called 'AIDS --Acquired Immunodeficiency'' Syndrome'')
And finally again no symptoms including mouth ulcers /oral problems have any meaning if it is not associated with a positive HIV result. Hope this suffices.

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question.
The efficacy of state provided condom is excellent if used properly and if it doesn't get torn or slipped during activity.

I guess I have answered your symptoms part query. I repeat symptoms have no significance without a positive test. All of HIV symptoms are quite similar to any other infection, therefore without a positive test, symptoms are not specific to HIV.

Torn/slipped condoms are not safe in any way, the risk of getting HIV/STD with torn/slipped condoms is equivalent to the risk without condoms (unprotected). If it doesn't get torn or slipped, then the protection is complete and safe.

Hope this helps.

Brief Answer:
Negligible

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your question. It is negligible if you can ensure each and every sexual activity (be oral/vaginal/anal)of yours is protected(with condoms) and the condoms neither slip or get torn. HIV needs an entry point to get inside your body and if you check that point , then you can be safe.Hope it helps
