Avatar f tn No. Oral is not a risk. Please read through the FAQ section for information on HIV and it's transmission. Testing wouldn't be required.
Avatar n tn So both these people are engaged in sexual acts and carries one or more stds, neither being AIDS or HIV. Heres the question(s) can they contract AIDS or HIV from continuing to have unprotected sex with each other with their mutual STDs? Do these STDs mutate so to speak in AIDS or HIV because these 2 people continue to have sex with each other? Or do they remain as the viruses they are? Herpes remains herpes, HPV remains HPV.
Avatar m tn Most clinicians nowadays will take an 8-week negative as a conclusive result for any low-risk exposure. The CDC guideline is still 3 months.
Avatar m tn Can anyone chime in on how sever the gluten sensitivity might be? Do you think between the IgA testing and the genetic test that I must definitely avoid gluten? Also, I am just curious in finding more information on this particular gene set. Anyone know a site that explains the different genes in depth but in simpler terms. Thank you in advance!

Avatar f tn I just found out about 12 years ago my mate was unfaithful and i have gotten tested recently with an third generation eia antibody test hiv1/2 with reflexes, a rapid blood test, 4 oraquick home tests and all came back negative. But ive read ur post that some people with aids antibodies wont show on those tests. Im very scared that im in that stage and the tests i took arent sufficient enough to know for sure.
Avatar f tn Hi, does anything interfere with testing, for example medication or supplements?
Avatar n tn No. Not a possibility. Please read about HIV and it's transmission in the FAQ section of the forum and move on. No risk. Testing won't be recommended.
Avatar n tn even though there was no penetration coud i still get aids......i went to do an aids and syphillis test after 22 days that this happened and it came back negative.....
Avatar n tn You have HIV specialist Doctors on here telling people 4 weeks depending on the risk is ok and you could live with that---and then you guys over here telling people that 4 weeks is ****---well I trust someone who is actually doing the test on me to give me the right info----I am done with this site. AIDSMEDS is fantastic--this place create anxiety!

Avatar m tn This subject is discussed here ad nauseum. Anyone is free to decide for themselves when they feel comfortable testing. ON THIS FORUM, we adhere to the official guidelines, the doctors take a more liberal stance. Dr. HHH often posts a few links to posts he's made that explains in detail about testing protocols, and why they give the advice THEY do, and why we give the advice we do. They are a good read.
Avatar n tn Im very worried....that I might progress to the aids stage and die without anyone knowing what of because of the gestation period.I had sex with a hooker 7 months ago but i have been sick ever since.
Avatar m tn Thanks a lot kind sir. If you don't mind me asking, what are your thoughts on PCR testing? PCR DNA? Are they worthwhile?
Avatar m tn 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). Incidence appears to have declined since 2004, but there is a fear that HIV/AIDS cases are underreported due to lack of an effective monitoring system.
Avatar m tn You had no HIV risk. You had protected sex no risk. You would of known for sure if your condom failed. Fingering no risk. Keep useing condoms and always be safe. No worries at all.
