What was your risk that has you concerned about ARS and seroconversion?
Receiving anal from an unknown man met in a gay bar... he ajaculated..he withdrew..he touched his semen and put his hands to my mouth that i have gingivitis and then WITHOUT CLEANING HAND..SO CUM IN HIS HANDS ..WORE ANOTHER CONDOM and i received anal for half hour more. Even protected..in theory sice condom... some semen touched outer condom which came inside me .. and day 8.5 having exudative tonsilitis ((DRTANANDPARTNERS..SAY EXUDATIVE TONSILLITIS IS OFTEN DESCRIBED AS A PRIMARY SYMPTOM..HOWEVER IN ************ TELL THAT IS NOT ALSO HERE)) with some pus dots with no fever..only SOME MUSCLE PAINS..but generally feeling well...work normally etc .. tonsiliitis lasted for 3 days.. now on day 12
OK I understand your point of view.. that infection happens inside the body.. ok .. So why inside the needles in the blood since it comes in contact with air..hiv remains capable for infection ? And even more for days even 2 weeks i know.
Anyway, just for the peace of mind to futurous readers can we please answer the 2 questions?
-Are diarrhea & tonsillitis related or appear as symptoms of acute hiv or ARS seroconversion?
-- 1-3 weeks (10-20 days some say) or 2-4 weeks ? Really
I am already very grateful to you..But can we improve more the answer please by answering to specific those 2 questions?
Thanks in advance
A needle with a syringe attached keeps the blood in a vacuum. It isn't exposed to the environment/air, so it remains infectious.
Those could be symptoms of ARS, but not likely without other symptoms, and are also symptoms of simple bacterial infections FAR, FAR more often than they are ARS.
People seroconvert at slightly different rates, but one week is really way too early. It doesn't matter all that much as the most accurate tests on the market shouldn't be taken until 4 weeks post-exposure. The RNA test, which shouldn't be taken unless there was a high-risk event with a known HIV+ individual, can detect the virus at 10 days post-exposure, so anyone claiming seroconversion prior to 10 days is stretching it.
This will be my final comment since you didn't have any risk for HIV.
Thanks for your comprehnsive response.
OK , I accept it..really
But here i would like to make a discussion, for informative reasons only.
Ok in the syringes is vacuum..
But in case of semen..
IS REALLY DEACTIVATED WITHIN 5 SECONDS FROM PENIS SHAFT TO USE IT AS LUBRICANT IN THE CONDOM?
