Aids in america

Common Questions and Answers about Aids in america


Avatar f tn For the most part, the rates of HIV are substantially lower in rural than urban areas. However, HIV/AIDS certainly is not absent in less populated areas of the US, and in some geographic areas the rates may be nearly as high as in urban areas. The rate may be higher in certain rural areas of the southeast than in urban areas in many urban areas.
Avatar f tn We once thought maybe the immunizations were a factor but that has currently been ruled out as not having any substantial evidence to support it. Now in my grandsons case, he was born with it. Is this only in America or is this problem worldwide and what are your theories as to its origin.
Avatar m tn What I have found in previous posts was the doctors saying that hiv was rare in heterosexual women, rare in sex workers in America, or she probably don't have HIV or something like that. What im wondering is this, in that website that ww2008 sent me it says there are around 1,000,000 to 1,200,000 people living with hiv/aids in the US. I know thats a high number but wouldn't that number seem low since there are around like 300 million people in the US or something like that.
Avatar f tn in america right, i am from africa and it is compulsory, lol, by law, lol. If a woman is pregnant she MUST be tested for hiv. It is just so different how things work here.
Avatar m tn If you live in America the Health Department in each state does conduct free testing. If you live in America you need to google the health department in your state and you can find info on testing. What makes you think you have HIV or a STD.
Avatar m tn No, otherwise everyone in America would be infected from sharing cigarettes, kisses and drinks.
Avatar f tn I never lived life thinking about race or color, but it just hit me that I will be raising a black boy in America. Its so sad with all the police killings of unarmed blackmen in America. In fact it recently happened in my neighborhood. To think that one day my son will be a blackman in America scares me. Any other mothers having or have black children worry about this?
2170635 tn?1357911686 I was surprised to see in 'one born every minute USA' (I'm in the UK) a patient give in and ask for an epidural and the midwife reply "well yeah of course, you wouldnt let a dentist pull your teeth without pain relief" if you ask for it here you would be told "but you're doing so well, how about we wait 10mins and see then" they tend to discourage it here...
206807 tn?1331936184 I need yalls help. I’ve read this over and over and still can’t conclude which one is male. From what I understand, the real female (I don’t want to turn this into a PC argument) is on the right but she doesn’t look like a male or a trans gender BOGOTA, Colombia (AP) — A couple in Ecuador is making history with a unique pregnancy: The father-to-be is carrying the baby of his transgender partner.
Avatar m tn Overall prevalence has increased since the first case was detected in 1984. El Salvador has the second-largest number of people living with HIV/AIDS in Central America, behind Guatemala. As of November 2009, 23,731 HIV/AIDS cases have been reported in the country (National HIV/AIDS Program of the Ministry of Health). The Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) estimates that in 2007, 35,000 Salvadorans were living with HIV (UNAIDS 2008 Report on the Global AIDS Epidemic).
Avatar n tn 3) Do a search on the Internet for various non-profit groups (gay and lesbian community organizations, Volunteers of America, HIV/AIDS community organizations) that offer free testing. Such groups often have the 20-minute rapid test, so you know even sooner. A simple Internet search is usually enough to give you several testing options. It's not even necessary to do it at your doctor's office.
Avatar n tn If you felt REALLY strongly about it, you might go to Africa, or volunteer in the inner cities in America to teach about condoms and diseases.
Avatar n tn HIV, AIDS and STD's are worldwide. They just don't reside in North America. Perhaps this escort slept with another person who lived in the US and did it without a condom. Like Judy said, vitamins don't stop you from contracting diseases. Just protect yourself.
Avatar m tn HHH stating that risk is very low and close to zero , in my case i had an exposure on November 25th 2012 , i was kind of drunk and ended up performing oral sex to a stripper hired for a private party , a few days later i lost weight and had fever which was produced by stomach parasites , i was under medications for 2 months since i was not sure how risky my activity was so test on March 02 2013 ( i guess 97 days) in a lab the teest was an Elisa 3rd generation thats th
Avatar m tn But to get back to the poster's question. If the concern is if the HIV is different in Central Europe than in America the answer is that it in almost all cases isn't. It's the same group (M) and subtype (B) that is prevalent both places.
Avatar f tn BV is also known an std, and you have to give consent for an HIV test .. Were you tested for TRICH? Might wanna find out ...
Avatar m tn Also to note, this happened on a vacation south in Central America and the girl was also on vacation from the states. The bug hit me about two days after I got back. It could be possible that this was from bad food or water, though I am unsure that those symptoms match that. When I am through the window period I will certainly get tested, but my primary questions is: I have seen on other posts that you mentioned ARS cannot start prior to 7-10 days from the date of infection.
148588 tn?1465778809 It was three years ago in 2012, when—for the first time ever—Chinese foreign investment in America lapped investment flows in the other direction to China. Asian investment in America is nothing new. Japanese companies led the way in the 1980s, partly to evade tariffs. Avoiding international taxes on goods again is partly why Chinese businesses are coming to America. But Chinese investment in the U.S.
Avatar f tn Does anyone get canker sores in Primary HIV infection, or do oral sores develop in the advanced stage? I have developed a canker sore inside of my lip. Everyone keep saying that the fact that i had protected sex and tested negative at 6 weeks, should not worry me, but these new symptoms keep showing up week after week.
Avatar f tn One thing I forgot to mention to ppl interested in the recent XMRV findings. Since we could have a retrovirus (which I think we all have to say is frightening...AIDS patients have another retrovirus), that is something that we will live with. Apparently it is in our DNA. One thing I recall about AIDS patients (and this is where the bacteria part comes in) is that I've heard that they do not die from their virus.... they die from co-infections (bacterial along with viral).
Avatar n tn I'm done, this is foolish man. Everybody would have aids like this, and by the way, everyone does NOT have aids everywhere you go man. This guy did'nt wipe you down with active bleeding open cuts dripping all over...ocd with this....
