Avatar m tn t know how much he is right as per my knowledge hiv if left untreated then it leads to AIDS and that to after a longer period please help me with your valuable advice on the same.
Avatar f tn Report, March 10 due to the U.S. National Women and Girls AIDS Awareness Day was announced. expression of the disease is seen in the many African-Americans. According to the figures of 2010, 12.6 percent of the population, African Americans' Although representing across the country, accounted for half of one million HIV carriers. this rate is rising, especially among women. In the report, the number of AIDS-caught African American women is said to be 20 times more than other women.
Avatar n tn I had protected sex and decided to perform unprotected cunnilingus on my sexual partner. After having sex I noticed blood on the condom. So I went to the bathroom to wash up and noticed blood around my chin and mouth. I am extremely worried that her blood might have gotten in contact with my blood somehow. A day after having sex I asked her to get an HIV check which came back negative on the antibody. Should I be worried?
Avatar f tn CNN ran this story and had the "facts" slightly "embellished". I can't remember what percentage rate they said, but it was different. The definately said that the rate hasn't been this high in 18 years.... So, depending on where you get your news, and whether you are an optimist or a pessimist, you can certainly find an answer in there somewhere to fit your needs..... Truth.... real figures. That's all anyone in this country wants....
Avatar f tn There’s much more in the CBO’s new figures, and we may have more to say about them in the future. And we offer no opinion on whether taxes are too high or too low, or just right. That’s a matter of intense national debate. But Congress must act soon on taxes, or allow a large increase to take effect automatically.
Avatar m tn According to the ever-so popular and quite sickening myth, humans can get HIV and AIDS from dogs through bestiality. Do you beleive this to be true? Why? (supporting facts would be helpful) 4. The CDC, otherwise known as Center for Disease control, states that you cannot get HIV or AIDS from dogs. However, the CDC does not specify any means of viral transmition. Why do you think this is? 5. Over 80 percent of my findings on the internet state that you cannot get HIV/AIDS from dogs.
5054727 tn?1362955307 We've discussed this ad nauseum here. You can search the forum and find probably hundreds of discussions about this. The CDC is a very conservative agency, they are not going to say something is impossible, due to liabilty reasons. If oral sex was TRULY a risk, there would be new infections diagnosed daily from oral, and almost everyone would be infected. The FACTS are, there aren't even statistical figures about oral sex leading to infection.
Avatar m tn The average time for the deterioration to occur to the state where people begin to get the sorts of infections which define AIDS is about 10 years. Like all average figures, the rate of decline varies from person to person as does individual susceptibility to various infections but this is a general overview of what happens. Whether immunity deteriorates somewhat (but not necessarily dramatically)faster in older persons is unclear but there is some evidence that this may be the case.
Avatar m tn Has anyone heard of this hiv like virus in china? If so please share FACTS with me! I'm hoping it's bs.!!
Avatar n tn This whole experience has felt like going on an intensive crash course on HIV/AIDS and the one major benefit is that you are forced into a situation of educating yourself which hopefully puts you in good stead for any future decisions/encounters. To the core contributors on this forum - I do admire your endurance in answering the same questions day in day out, and I realise you must feel like throwing your pc against the wall with some of the stuff that is posted on here.
Avatar m tn Hello. Again. Why are you so worried? Because you have severe HIV ANXIETY, that's why. And since you won't believe what you've been told on the HIV Forum, what you've been told on various HIV/AIDS Hotlines, what I gave you to read and what I've told you numerous times, then it's time you got into therapy. You can only be given the FACTS just so many times before a line must be drawn. I will outline those facts once more and then, for ME, the line will be drawn.
Avatar m tn Doctors, and organizations have a RESPONSIBILITY to their patients, and to the public, be cautious and conservative. The posters on this forum do not have to be conservative. We can more or less be flat out to the point. You see the difference? So, can say that there is a minute risk associated with oral sex, but the "risk" is so negligible, that it might as well be zero. It just is not a risk.
Avatar m tn During these years, there will be no prominent symptoms of HIV/AIDS. One of the dangerous facts about AIDS is that although, during asymptomatic stage, there will be no symptoms, the virus can still be transferred from the infected person.
557003 tn?1222577226 And these 2 questions are not really important but just out of curiosity, what are those odds for heterosexual women and homosexual male and female? What is the current population of HIV and AIDS infected people in the US and Asia and different countries around the world? There must be a site somewhere that can give you these figures...
Avatar n tn A few days ago , a gril gave me oral sex,but i am sure her mouth is bleeding and i stop it. And my penis have cuts ! now i know she have AIDS,I think i am done,i can not sleep.
Avatar m tn About 20% of American adults have HSV-2 and of these, most do not know it. Thus there is a small chance that any sexual encounter with a person who has ever had sex before could be with an infected partner. BUT, the chance of transmission at any single act of intercourse with an infected partner is less than 1 in 1,000 and, if the partner is asymptomatic, is probably less than 1 in 10,000 - this is a very small chance.
Avatar f tn I had only pecked him, No French kissing but I did feel a lip and the tip of my tongue get a little wet. I know his teeth were still bleeding because when he spit I saw blood. Can I get hiv from this incident? Should I start pep. I do not have any sore in my mouth or on my lips but my lips are chapped. Please let me know!
Avatar m tn The internet can be very helpful if you learn to accept the facts and only read information that is based on facts not fiction.No one has ever contracted HIV from having a finger inserted in their anus in over 30 years of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
