Common Questions and Answers about Aids testing history

aids

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 f tn You have to have contracted HIV before you progress to AIDS and you've never put yourself at risk of contracting HIV.
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 n tn I've seen varying claims of just how effective condoms are. http://projects.publicintegrity.org/aids/report.aspx?aid=810 "Norman Hearst, a professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, has spent 20 years researching HIV/AIDS in developing countries. In a 2003 report funded by UNAIDS, he concluded that condoms were effective 90 percent of the time based on an aggregate study of all studies done on condom effectiveness.
Avatar m tn Second, even if you had HIV, symptoms alone are never the basis of classifying as AIDS or non-AIDS. It takes lab tests and/or certain diagnosed illnesses. And from what you say, your symptoms really don't even hint at HIV, immune deficiency of any kind, or any of the AIDS-defining opportunistic diseases. Do not let your mind run away with possibilities and do not search the internet about it.
Avatar n tn Hi , I am nt a docter . But this i thnk would be of help to u. Unprotected sex is a risk, bt also dsnt mean every other guy has aids Aids doesn't discriminate on race bt also its true that Blacks have a higher incidence bt thats nt enough whites are also victim of aids , so U shld test at 3 months for a conclusive result.
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?
138239 tn?1239924924 When you look at her hearing chart graph it looks like someone took a bite out of a cookie, that's the way the audiologist explained it, she also called it a difficult loss. On the graph she starts out normal then goes down, down down, then goes up, up up.
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.
Avatar m tn Hi Doctors, Sorry, I posted this on the free board and meant for it be be here....newbie mistake. Here is the scenario. I'm a 36 year old healthy, married, straight male with no history of STD's. 15 months ago, I had an unprotected encounter with a woman whom I don't know very well at all that resulted in internal ejaculation. This was a HUGE mistake and one I very much regret and am dealing with on multiple fronts.

Avatar m tn Everyone with AIDS has a positve antibody test, as do many peole who have not progressed to the advanced stage of disease represented by AIDS. This will be my last answer. You do not have HIV or AIDS.
