Accidentally passing on HIV
      #270651 - 02/17/13 12:34 PM

I had unprotected sex with someone who could be HIV+ in November. I got tested the next day and the results came back a few weeks later as neg. I was tested again in December and got a second neg but I need to be tested again in March for a more concrete answer.

A few weeks ago I was with my dad. He accidently hit me in the face with his hand and his fingernail cut me and I bleed. I am scared now that I could have passed it on to him.

Is there a risk from what happened?

Are you sure? I have another apointment on the 6th March but I am going crazy thinking I have put him at risk. I have no idea how else it can be spread besides sex. The cut bled quite alot.

HIV is transmitted through unprotected sex and sharing needles. not through cuts or getting hit in the face.

while having unprotected sex was a risk, the odds are in your favor and your test in March will be conclusive. a negative test result in December is very promising. so no need to go crazy worrying about this.
