Aids infection rates

Common Questions and Answers about Aids infection rates


Avatar m tn you want to know your status? TEST symptoms, or lack thereof, do not diagnose hiv.
Avatar m tn The chance you caught HIV from a heterosexual exposure is extremely low, especially if your partner and you are both long-time UK residents, i.e. not immigrants from an country with high rates of HIV/AIDS. Finally, it is nearly impossible to have HIV for 9 years and not know it; by now you would be very sick, perhaps dead. So there is absolutely no chance HIV is a problem here.
29837 tn?1414534648 Page A02 Marijuana can improve the effectiveness of drug therapy for hepatitis C, a potentially deadly viral infection that affects more than 3 million Americans, a study has found. The work adds to a growing literature supporting the notion that in some circumstances pot can offer medical benefits.
Avatar n tn Nobody here can help what a clinic in Albuquerque thinks of heterosexual HIV infection rates, but I can tell you that the data suggest otherwise! HIV infection rates are rising across the board, and are hitting disproportionately those demographics who used to think they didn't have a risk! While gay males currently compose a disproportionate share of HIV cases, that tables can and are quickly turning. You should never think that probability alone can prevent transmission.
Avatar m tn Hi, The above doesnt mean that single exposure wont lead to an infection. That is stated over all in general observation as HIV is a fragile virus to get transmitted via penis-vaginal intercourse in single go. Its diffucult not impossible.
Avatar m tn After going through a panel test for HEPBsAg +ve, and IgM anti HBc -ve, which probably indicate a likely hood of a chronic HBV infection with review of clinical history, how would you proceed to help treat that kind of patient. And if they are not liable to treatment, what aids that conclusion? In some recommendations, i have read monitor within arange of 4-6 weeks. In that regard are you waiting for any relapse of clinical signs or?
Avatar m tn El salvador has the second highest rates of HIV infection of all central American countries and they should know that testing at 6 months is not required at all.Your government has spent alot of money promoting safe sex in high risk areas,targeting high risk groups.0.8% of the population is HIV+.
Avatar m tn Would you disclose an oral HSV1 infection or expect an oral HSV1 infection to be disclosed to you. The answer to this is as applicable to genital HSV1.
Avatar n tn teak/mikey - I was wondering what your thoughts are on incidence rates of infection. Now I know the virus does not discriminate and anyone can get it but was wondering what the prevalence of it is in the various groups. I guess you can categorize by MSM, IDU, hetero, endemic (any others?) - this is not to say that the infection cant cross into other categories. Say if you live in Chicago - roughly 2.
Avatar n tn 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 7.5% higher with odds of about 762 to 1, and a lymphoma rate 8% higher with odds of about 708 to 1. These numbers argue (but don't prove) that potatoes increase white blood cell counts. Has anyone ever noticed this association before?
Avatar n tn Dr. I am worried about possible HIV infection and confused by propability rates. I have had maybe 75-100 protected vaginal sex episodes with sex workers over the last 7.5 years. Most of these in Latin America and the Caribbean but one in Southern Africa and one in Sri Lanka. I have never tested because I always used protection though sometimes drunk. So it is possible that I have been infected for up to 7 years.
Avatar n tn is there any chance of an infection if u rub ur penis on someones hand,thighs,back??? u get std or aids by doing this?? i washed my penis after doing this....please help.....
Avatar m tn i had unprocted sex 12 year ago but i never being sick these years but currently i am not feeling well so i there any chance of hiv/aids after 12 year . This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/HIV---Prevention/Will-I-have-AIDS-after-12-years/show/1361575">Will I have AIDS after 12 years?</a>.
Avatar m tn Welcome to the STD forum. Only rough estimates are available. But here are some pertinent data. In a study to determine the effectiveness of antiherpetic therapy (valacylovir) to prevent transmission of HSV-2, monogamous couples who were HSV-2 discordant -- i.e. one with HSV-2, the other without it -- the rate of transmission was about 5% per year. That is, the virus was transmitted in 1 in 20 couples every 12 months. The couples had unprotected sex about 2-3 times per week.
Avatar f tn i dont think it has anything to do with democracy, we have democracy here as well, lol, OMG. the hiv rates and aids rates here are the highest in the world, to protect the future and the children we do this so that kids can be born hiv free. I cant believe u dont see the sense in making this compulsory?
Avatar f tn You could tell your mom you need a doctor appointment because of something else that is less alarming than sexual diseases would be, such as a urinary tract infection or a kidney problem. Then speak to the doctor in private. You can just say you have some questions you would rather ask he doctor tin private.
Avatar n tn Does anyone know the transmission rates for Hep B? I am unsure if I was ever vaccinated, but what are the chances that a one time unprotected encounter (vaginal sex) could bring Hep B? It has been 6 months since a possible exposure and have had no symptoms. I tested for all STDS (including HIV) at 3 and 6 mo and all were negative? If the female was vaccinated for Hep B, can still be a carrier if she was exposed before me? Stupid question, just asking.
Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Understand your predicament. As there was no mixing of body fluids it's unlikely that you may have developed HIV infection. Persisting throat infection could be due to other causes like post nasal drip or tonsillitis. But if you are in doubt, have yourself evaluated for HIV, it will help clear your worries. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
1434838 tn?1285404132 while you have the yeast infection though you should use condoms because you can pass it to your boyfriend which will in turned be passed back to you and just keep cycling.. a yeast infection though is nothing like AIDS it something that occurs to probably 80% or more of women at one point in their lives... no big deal!!!
Avatar f tn Hi Terri I just wanted to clarify that I was concerned about spreading this to my partners genitals, not their mouth as you have mentioned above. She already has HSV1 orally. Do your comments still apply for this? Also for my own future reference, if a future partner didn't have a prior HSV1 infection, what are the potential transmission rates if daily suppression therapy and condoms are always used?? Is it true HSV1 genital sheds far less than HSV2?
Avatar m tn had the lower 2 lobes of her right lung removed, then, 6 months later, 4 rounds of 2 different types of chemo, and thru it all she also had to fight an infection she got in the remaining lobe of her right lung!...For her, the surgery was much harder than the chemo...we jokingly call her the "tough old bird"...she has a cast iron stomach!! The chemo(s) made her tired, and bald, but really that was all...and around here, "bald is beautiful"!!
