If you believe you have been exposed to HIV and want help to judge your risk, would like advice about HIV testing, or have questions about the effectiveness of condoms or risks associated with specific sexual practices, this is the site for you.
Hi, I am a girl form China, 2 months back i had a Haemorrhoid operation, and i remember 2 or 3 days after that when i was getting a wound cleaning and dressing, the doctor touch my anus' wound with his gloves, and he had done for some patients before me, and i am sure he never change the gloves. So i think there may be around 0.5-1 min the gloves touched the other patient before. Do i have any risk getting HIV in this manner? Please help me. I am so worry, and i have done my HIV test 50 days after that it's negative. Do i need to get more test?
Thank you Mr Teak !!
Do you mean that even there is blood from last patient who is HIV positive on the gloves, after expose to the air over 30 second, it is IMPOSSIBLE to transmit to me. Bcs the wound is on my anus, it's different from normal skin. so i was worrying.
HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions; therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.
HIV is transmitted by;
Unprotected penetrative anal and/or vaginal sex
Sharing works with other IV drug abusers
Mother to child

I had a fever just 14 days after that "accident" over 38.5 for only one day and cough for 2 weeks, so they was not ARS right?and i have done my test one month after the fever.it should be very persuasive.
