Avatar m tn You don't use statistics to assess your risk, you test to know your status. Use condoms correctly and consistently and you can avoid HIV and most STDs.

Although I know that the chances of spreading HSV-1 to eithers genitals is extremely low, is there any numbers out there on this?

649848 tn?1534633700 Facts and statistics are often cherry-picked to present a “narrative” that all white people are racist and all blacks are victimized by whites. These statistics suggest this is a biased view that serves only to exacerbate racial tensions. Human beings should be presumed innocent until proven guilty and should not be lumped into categories that make them appear guilty of committing some crime that in many cases they had nothing to do with.
Avatar f tn You can begin to help yourself by getting educated about HIV/AIDS. I would urge you to refrain from any form of sexual encounter until you understand how HIV is transmitted. Since you obviously don't know what does and what doesn't constitute safe sex, you should probably abstain until you learn how to protect both you and your partner. I'm sorry if this sounds harsh, but people KNOW there is a risk out there and yet they just keep on having sex and then freaking out.
Avatar m tn Let me explain something about "life span" statistics and how we arrive at them. They're calculated on the basis of averages. They survey a sample of people in a particular group (gay men, for example) and look at the average age of death. The result is the average life span for that group. If you consider the number of young men who have died of AIDS over the years, of course there's a higher number of deaths among young, gay men.
Avatar m tn Oral sex is "theoretically" a sincerely low risk; however, the risk is so close to zero that it cannot be calculated. This doesn't mean to go enjoy oral sex with someone bleeding from the gums while massaging your genitals with a cheese grater, but you shouldn't be too concerned. If you would like to know the statistics of HIV/AIDS based on gender, you can easily go Google "HIV Statistics.
Avatar m tn I have just recently joined MedHelp and find it aninteresting and informative site. I am somewhat curious about the distinction between comments from the physicians and those from the forum members / moderators (ie: Lizzie and Teak).
Avatar n tn AIDS and leukemia are opposite diseases: AIDS is caused by too few white blood cells, while leukemia and lymphoma are caused by too many. With that in mind, consider the following statistics from The 25 US states with the highest potato consumption rates have an AIDS rate 117% lower than the other 25 states. The odds of that happening by chance are about 7752 to 1 against. Those states also have a leukemia rate 7.
1794638 tn?1345155061 Hepatitis C is a reportable disease. All Hepatitis C diagnoses must be reported by the doctor, health care professional, or health care facility that recieves the results. I don't know if they are required to be notified of cures, but they do have statistics on cures so maybe they do. "Reportable diseases are diseases considered to be of great public health importance.
Avatar m tn Dear Volunteers, As I have shared about my case of unprotected vaginal sex with CSW few days back today while speaking with my doc I came to know that few people have died of AIDS in my location with in 2 years of them contracting with virus. Means contracting with virus leads to death .

Avatar m tn I have been on several websites in reference to my concern, and the statistics are killing me. "Low risk" is not low enough. I engaged in receptive oral sex a few times, for about a minute or two each time, and I'm unsure as to whether or not pre-cum was present during any of the times.
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 m tn An HIV test will not detect the presence of the HIV virus immediately after exposure. Statistics show that 96% (perhaps higher) of all infected individuals will test positive within 2 to 12 weeks. In some cases, this may take up to six months."
Avatar f tn i'm a 33 year old female just diagnosed with a balanced translocation after 2 miscarriages. i've seen a genetic counselor and currently have a future appointment set up with a doctor who specializes in genetics, but in the meantime i'm trying to find any form of statistics about my chances of having a normal healthy pregnancy, either naturally or through IVF with PGD. Does anyone have any cold hard facts?
Avatar n tn I questioned her information, and she showed me the same information written on a card from the Maryland AIDS Administration. The local news here had cited the same statistics from the Virginia agency. Both of these organizations are headed by MDs and (I’m almost sure) receive Federal funding from CDC. They must receive money from the State taxpayers.
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.
Avatar m tn I'm not an idiot. I know all the statistics and I'm not scared of people with HIV or AIDS. I actually work in a population where it's very possible for anyone of my clients to be diagnosed with it. Maybe you and nvmybeauty should think before you jump to conclusions like you did. Because I didn't know what peripheral neuropathy was I thought maybe it was caused by the AIDS. I apologize for "assuming" so.
