1530342 tn?1405016490 My daughter-in-law is working on AIDs projects in Africa. The epidemic is much larger there, partially due to poverty and lack of education as well as stubborn refusal by some of using condoms. Of course, I can't let this subject go by without mentioning the fact that Hep C now kills more people in the US than HIV/AIDs.
Avatar f tn is there a difference in old antibodies test between hiv 1 & 2 ?
Avatar f tn My doctor has been in Africa for the last 2 months she's been in Nigeria and Kenya should I be concerned about her continuing being my doctor?
Avatar f tn I am a 41 year old female who spent two weeks in the Ivory Coast of W. Africa in 1996. Upon returning I had stroke-like symptoms (slowed speech, slowed gate, slowed thinking) and was subsequently diagnosed with viral meningitis/encephalitis. Ruled out Lymes, malaria (via smear), CSF was elevated WBC, Lymphocytes. Symptoms resolved within eight days with the exception of bilat leg weakness, such as the inability to lift my legs into the car, and severe fatigue.

Avatar m tn i am reading a few threads here that say in South Africa the standard window testing period is 6 months , i live in South Africa and have been in contact with the AIDS hotline , rest assured that in South Africa the window period is 3 months , i have also read that 6-8 weeks is a good indicator ...
Avatar n tn Lizzy I did something stupid when i was in Africa , i made contact by tapping my exposed penile head on her privates -then penetrated about twice (thrusts), upon realisation I wore a condom , in a missionary position and at some stage let go to violently fall by means of gravity to penetrate as there was not much resistance...this is stupid and embaracing but now i am very sick-had oral leasons, chest infections, night sweat, joint pain and a runny stomach.
Avatar m tn Hiv is not that bad in Africa as people believe, i am born and raise in Africa and in my hole life of 24years only two people were diagonise positive from my community so relax man Africa is not equal to hiv, just wait and take an antibody test at 3month.
Avatar f tn Also hiv subtype 2 does home access catch it? I know mostly in west africa but we do have a high west african population in ohio? And last but not least can a miss step in the test like not letting the blood dry the full 30min affect results thank you and advance...
Avatar n tn I also wonder this, how could so many men in Africa be infected with HIV if the transmission rate was really only 1 / 2000 encounters. I have a feeling that is on the very low end.

Avatar n tn Since it was with a mixed race prostitute from Africa I started to worry because in Africa there is HIV and AIDS.I tested 5 times through the laboratory and realised a negative status.I told my story indirectly to a medical microbiologist as im still worried because I have a rough layer of white on my tongue which feels like dead cells.The microbiologist said there was no 100% chance of someone being truely negative.
Avatar n tn Researchers publishing in the Lancet studied 26,000 untreated HIV-positive people in developing countries and found the most rapid increase in drug resistance occurred in East Africa, at 29% per year. In Southern Africa, it was 14% per year.
Avatar f tn Here in canberra where I live there is only 300 people who are HIV+ from a population of close to 600,000.We are done an excellent job in prevention.More needs to be done in countries like South Africa where the rates of HIV infection are in the million,it's a shocking mess and the government is to blame.Education is the key for HIV prevention.All the best.
Avatar m tn Hello dr i will not ask about the risk of hiv i know i am not infected but i am asking questions if you could answer them it will be appreciated as you are expert you know that there is a huge number of people who are infected with aids in the world do you think that they all got the virus through sexual relations.
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 Hello Doctor, I was thinking of a new hiv/aids prevention method. It starts with if you cover the externel urethrtal orifice, with some sort of lets say duct tape. Will it help prevent the spreading of HIV. I was wondering since it is the only way vaginal fluid, or any type of bodily fluid could enter via oral, anal sex. Thus being covered, there isn't a way for the virus to enter nor leave. Your answer will be greatly appreciated and respected. Thank you for your time.
Avatar m tn therefore dr h was incorrect despite his 30 odd years of experience and award for HIV /AIDS research in Southern Africa..
Avatar m tn Surely we must acknowledge that new information comes to light. What then is your take on how experts in South Africa reach a number of 1 chance in 2,500? More and more people are claiming to be have become infected via oral, can they all be lying?
