Avatar m tn I have become highly sensitive and sympathetic to the concerns and alarms voiced by so many people around the topic of Oral Transmission of HIV. The information on the internet is inconsistent and at times alarming and frightening. Some websites use dated or not statistically valid sample information to arrive at unsupported positions. In March 2015 I had three separate unprotected oral experiences.
Avatar m tn As most of the youngsters I am also facing the problem of hair loss and got appointment from a Canadian Hair Transplant Centre as I don't want to lose all my hair. My Natural hair restoration treatment (at Canadian Hair Transplant Centre Toronto) will start from the month of march and I want you people to give suggestions for the shampoo I should use for these two months before the treatment starts.
Avatar f tn AIDS Vancouver follows a guideline that is outdated and based on older tests and old data. Information is different everywhere. AIDS Vancouver says 6 weeks and yet CATIE (Canadian Aids Treatment Information Exchange says 3 weeks with negative duo is a very good indicator) In 2014 the CDC released new guidelines stating if the initial HIV Duo is negative no more testing is necessary. Whether its 4 weeks or 6 weeks it makes no difference. You did not have a risk. The Duo test is 99.
Avatar m tn YES you should and you should ignore people like Gary L Glum because he's full of you know what.HIV/AIDS is real and so is HIV testing.These HIV/AIDS denialists don't have a clue and they have blood on their hands.
Avatar f tn finally at 82 days I have went ICTC centre Mumbai where they have tested me for HIV and syphilis both came negative.. COMB AIDS test was used..
Avatar n tn The doctor told me that it is a new generation test with much accuracy.. Can I believe the results? If you have any information about the tests used in Norway, I feel very happy to know that...
Avatar n tn its my first time with him but he may sex with many peoples. Do I have chance to get HIV/Aids in one time Sex ? if yes then please recommend me what i have to do to avoid HIV.
Avatar n tn However (CATIE, Canadian Aids Treatment Information Exchange) the governing body for HIV research in Canada says a duo test is conclusive at 28 days or anytime after. I personally spoke with the medical director and she stated the window period is 4 weeks for the Duo test. That information is also stated by HIV experts such as Dr. Handsfield and Dr. Hook (World reknowned HIV experts) based on numerous seroconversion panel studies. The 90 day window period refers strictly to Antibody only tests.

It is NOT heplful in our mission to accurately educate our posters in a safe, nonjudgemental manner. HIV is a very REAL disease that does NOT discriminate. ANYONE regardless of their faith, sexual preference or race can become HIV infected.
Avatar m tn HELLO PEOPLE I HAD UNPROTECTED ORAL SEX ON 24TH MARCH AND HAD PROTECTED VAGINAL SEX ON 29TH MARCH 2008 (APPROXIMATELY 3-4 MINS SEX).. I GOT TESTED FROM RED CROSS AIDS RESEARCH CENTRE IN BANGKOK ON 14TH MAY, WHICH FALLS TO BE AFTER 6-7 WEEK ALREADY, THE RESULT WAS NEGATIVE.. CAN I TAKE THIS RESULT AS 100% ACCURATE .. AS I HAVE BEEN REALLY WORRIED.. CHEERS GUYS FOR REPLYING BACK.. APPRECIATED..
Avatar m tn Well, at the HIV/AIDS centre in my country they told me the same. That they have seen people getting infected with oral sex when there was ejaculation in the mouth/throat.
Avatar m tn Then i went to the local govt testing centre in India for Combi Aids test. Which came Negative. So i was liitle relieved. Then again the counsellor asked me check for signal hiv test, i under gone and he said it came mildly positive. I was worried from then and never gone to test again. My question : Is it AB / AG test (Elfa) is correct after the window period of 90 days? I come across lot of discussion over internet that AB/AG test will not be accurate after 90 days.
Avatar n tn Current tests will detect HIV within 3 months, often sooner. I don't know about any specific cases in Kenya, but 5 years is not true at all today, if ever. Let's not panic needlessly.
Avatar m tn you are putting the horse before the cart here. for starters...it is highly unlikely that she has hiv...most ppl dont. the odds are definitely on your side...it is much harder for a man to contract hiv from a woman. the deed is done. you need to get off the computer and stop reading about hiv...all you are doing is adding fire to your anxiety. so far, you have over 60 posts / comments regarding this. test at the appropriate time to know your status.
Avatar f tn Hi I am a man and had oral sex from a hooker last night could I get hiv aids, please help
Avatar f tn Hello, Can u kindly explain me how many stages are involved in HIV positive? Can get AIDS as soon as being suffered for HIV?? Can HIV person be recovered like a normal person if taking a medicine regularly and obeying doc's suggestion properly??
Avatar n tn These super-small viruses can get through a hole in a condom much more easily than sperm can. For example, HIV (the AIDS-causing virus) is so small that two million of the disease-causing agents could crowd on the period at the end of a sentence. In 1993 the University of Texas analyzed the results of 11 different studies that had tracked the effectiveness of condoms to prevent transmission of the AIDS virus.
Avatar m tn No you have no HIV risk from using a wash cloth...no matter what.
Avatar m tn If you have continuing concerns about HIV, return to (or telephone) the Sexual Health Centre where you were evaluated and tested. The Australia SHCs collectively are probably the world's best STD/HIV clinic system. If you continue to be unable to get beyond your fears despite all the reassurance you have had, it may indicate a need for professional mental health care. It isn't normal to have such difficulty accepting such strong evidence that you are not infected.
Avatar m tn HIV can be transmitted due to sharing needles, this is because the blood interact. Unfortunately, there is no cure for HIV (note that HIV isn't the same as AIDS) but treatment for this virus is really advanced. There are medications that permit people live a completely normal life with HIV without developing AIDS. I hope everything is ok, post your results. Personally, I think you didn't involve in high risk. This virus is very fragile and die easily at normal temperature.
Avatar m tn Even though the risk is less than anal or vaginal, itstll exists and is documented. That is current information according to Canadian health authorities too.
