How exactly do you get infected?
how exactly do you get infected with the HIV/AIDS virus through a needle? let's say you got poked with a needle that had hiv blood stained on it or something.. or was used by an hiv infected person ; or does the needle need to be going directly into your bloodstream ? or a poke into a random part of the body will do ? O_O
It is not quite as simple as a that, but this has to be a general response, because there are many possibilities that can apply.
The poke to a random part of the body, most likely will leave you unaffected. Unless it hit a Vein, or was in the neck, you are most likely okay. So relax. It's also dependent upon how long the needle was under your skin for. Less than a minute? You're fine. 5 minutes or more? Well then you pay have a problem. But also, if the blood on the needle was dry, and old then you should be good. The white blood cells in your body and anti-body should destroy anything that trys to enter from a puncture woon as small as a needle. The Virus will also be weak from being out of the body for more than a few minutes, in a non-vaccumed area.
Yes you can get it that way and also hiv can live in dried blood for many days, so if you touch it and have a open area you can contract it that way too. Many health departments have information about HIV/Aids, go get some and read up on it.
It is not very transmissible, at least not as much as hepatitis B is. I knew a nurse that got stuck a couple times by a prisoner as an attack with an IV needle and by accident when an IV needle of a prisoner popped out of a prisoner and got her in the palm...she tested negative, but was wary.
This is a good question. I think that the way you become infected through a needle is if the blood is actually still in the syringe and you go to use the syringe. The fact is that you have to get through alive blood or body fluids. This is at least what my doctors have told me.
Any random part of your body has blood in it, therefore it is going into your bloodstream wherever you get stuck.
Any random part of you body. The needle does not have to go directly into a vein

Unlikely just from the one encounter lasting a few minutes, but it's possible. Circumcised won't make a difference, nor will where you ejaculated. Go and get tested in time. Harriet
