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.
Hello. I recently shared some herbal tobacco (sort of like marijuana but no THC) out of a glass pipe with a couple of people that I didn't know at a bar. I only took 2 hits from it, but It was dark inside and could not see if there was any blood on the pipe. I had no open wounds or anything in my mouth. 2 weeks afterwards I came down with a bad sore throat and nasal drip. I am extremely worried (not able to eat or sleep). What is my risk of HIV acquisition? I have never injected anything and have been sexually inactive for quite some time. I know this question has been asked on the boards here but mostly involving joints/cigarettes. Thank you so much.
