Common Questions and Answers about Aids treatment in thailand

aids

Avatar m tn I recently had sexual relations with a prostitute in Thailand, condom was used, no kissing or oral was involved, however there was blood found on the sheets afterwards, i have been checked and been given the all clear but am on anti viral drugs to be sure (combin 300) What are the the chances that this can be transferred to another partner with such a low chance of contracting the virus? Is there a a possibility that this could happen.
Avatar n tn BANGKOK – For the first time, an experimental vaccine has prevented infection with the AIDS virus, a watershed event in the deadly epidemic and a surprising result. Recent failures led many scientists to think such a vaccine might never be possible. The World Health Organization and the U.N. agency UNAIDS said the results "instilled new hope" in the field of HIV vaccine research.
Avatar m tn I am a expat living in Thailand. I have just been offered treatment Pegintron. http://www.pegintron.com/peg/application. 24 weeks treatment genotype 3 is $8563.00 The ribavirin is included in this price. Doctor and blood tests. liver function, viral load, ect about $2,000 for 24 week. Total = about $10,560 for 24 week treatment. To someone who knows--- is this a good price??
Avatar m tn Ive heard that the bar girls in thailand check themself for STD(hiv, aids etc) every month or so and if they have an STD they dont get a job or get fired from the bar coz its bad business and bad reputation for the bar, is this true? I`ve also read that the chances for a healthy 22 year old male having one time sex with a person with aids-hiv getting hiv is very slim?
Avatar m tn I have spent days on the internet trying to find out info on the statistics of HIV in the Thailand bars. There are plenty of statistics for thailand as a whole but it needs to be broken down. There a a lot of small local brothels which locals go to where condoms are not used which would affect the statistics of the HIV in the GO GO bars where the girls are supposed to be tested monthly/quarterly. They are also having sex with tourists where condoms are being used on most occasions.
Avatar m tn At least in Beijing, there is a leading infectious hospital (Beijing Ditan Hospital) that specializes HIV/Aids which initated the cocktail treatment in China. Its founder was in the same team with David Ho in Aaron Diamond lab in NYU. It does all kinds of hiv tesing, including the 4th generation Duo test, among others. I hope it helps.
Avatar n tn We used to do it in my STD clinic but stopped several years ago, because of high rates of uninterpretable results that made little or no difference in treatment decisions. Further, the utility of such an exam or treatment undoubtedly is even lower in men who have recently taken azithromycin. (Why did you do that, by the way? If you're in the habit of routinely treating yourself for presumptive STDs, I recommend you stop.
Avatar n tn However, my understanding that any increased propensity to heterosexual transmission is in the lower range of the possibilities you quote from some websites. From my understanding of the epidemiology of HIV/AIDS in Thailand, it is not plausible that the vaginal sex transmission risk is anything like the higher rates you cite. That said, there are no data. The transmission risk data in the US, published by CDC (e.g.
Avatar m tn Anyone who knows if i can get the at least the fda approved test in either singapore or thailand. Any neighbouring country please.
Avatar m tn However very recently i was VERY foolish and engaged in vaginal sexual intercourse (as male) with a CSW in Thailand!! I did where a condom however it splt and i didnt realise until the end.. She seemed just as concerned as mysekf when seeing that it had split and insisted she was clea (i assume they all say the same).. I was unable to afford the PEP treatment as im out of my home country which is making me worry even more as i am now past the 72 hr mark!!..
Avatar m tn Two weeks ago, I was in thailand and like the stupid 23 year old that I am, I had unprotected sex with a thai sex worker. Fast forward till yesterday, i wake up with both my eyes blood red and it burns during urination. After some googling, I found out i had either chlamydia or gonorrhea.
Avatar f tn I went to Thailand for tourism and when I entered the shop massage women suck my penis for money Is AIDS is transmitted by sucking my penis please, I'm afraid
Avatar m tn m posting this because it relates to me and many, many others on this forum, and perhaps it will make others think twice before engaging in sex with a CSW, unprotected in Thailand or any other SEA country. It is well documented that the South East Asian countries Have a different strain of HIV-1 to Western countries. It is a subtype that is peculiar to this region called HIV Subtype-E.
Avatar m tn Incidence of HIV in Thailand is high among sex workers and gay men. Although the vast majority of women in Thailand are negative. Unfortunately I do not have accurate information on statistics about incidence of HIV there; however they do have access to testing and treatment. Assuming that she was positive, the risk for you is relatively low. I agree with the previous contributor to your post in saying that your estimated risk from a single encounter would be less than 0.
Avatar f tn No iam in uae is here any aids person available she is from Thailand but she didn't allow to kiss me and touch her vagnal. But she too tired thats y iam scared may be she affected by hiv.
Avatar m tn Well, I had protected sex with a prostitute in (Bangkok) Thailand 16 months ago, the condom tore during intercourse.I realized at last moment.I ejaculated outside the vagina.I asked the girl,She said she did not have AIDS. I never got any symptoms till date(after 16 months).I mean I never had fever,cough cold or any illness after the intercourse till today.What is probability of me being infected.I never checked myself.
Avatar n tn Hi, about a month ago, I had protected sex (using condom) with a prostitute in Pattaya, Thailand. We kissed as well. I was quite drunk them but I remembered her biting the inside of my lower lips. At first, it did not felt anything. We had sex for about 4 hours. Then, I got back to my room and slept. When I woke up, i realized that i had a bleeding gum at the inside of my mouth the the lower lip. I don't think there is sign of blood (not sure).
Avatar m tn the doctor now is looking to see how bad i have it (CD4). i will also go back to thailand where i assume i got HIV and will set up an appointment with a good hospital there to review. my question - how do i begin living with this disease? what forums are there? i want to chat with real people and not statistics provided by Doctors. i know there is still a stigma on HIV. tks.
Avatar m tn I had 2 potential exposures whilst in Thailand. Neither with a sex woker, but both unprotected (well one unprotected and another involved two condoms breaking). At the time I didnt worry about it and didnt even think about it, but since a friend made a joke about 'catching HIV over there' I have become quite paranoid.
