Avatar f tn s not a very likely way to get HIV, given that only a handful of healthcare workers have ever contracted HIV in a clinical setting. Additionally, PEP is highly effective in preventing seroconversion. Presumably, you are working with your hospital's infection control department, who will test at the appropriate time following PEP. I know it's stressful, but you are extremely unlikely to contract HIV from this event.
Avatar n tn latex and polyurethane condoms have been shown to PREVENT the transmission of hiv...of course that is without condom failure.
Avatar m tn All strains and subtypes are picked up on antibody tests.
Avatar n tn My result by ELISA I got positive HIV retested 2 time at the same time same clinc then they sent my sample to the ministry of Health (HIV/AIDS department), the department where the AIDS is controlled in my coountry. so any positive should be sent to the ministry to confirmed.

Avatar n tn To answer your questions, if you have always used condoms consistently and correctly your risk of contracting HIV is zero even if your partners are HIV positive. No HIV cannot permeate skin read the above post.
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 You should see a doctor or clinic with expertise in HIV prevention -- either a local community doctor very familiar with HIV/AIDS or your local health department would be good choices. As for unprotected sex with your regular partner, if I were in your situation I wouldn't take the risk until the PCR test was done and negative. At that point, I would probably feel comfortable proceeding, but only after informing my partner and letting him participate in the decision.
Avatar f tn Because of the indirect nature of the constitutional challenges involved in this case, Dragovich v. U.S. Department of the Treasury, the case was unlike many of the other direct challenges to Section 3 of DOMA that are ongoing in several other federal courts. Both federal and state government entities and individuals were named as defendendants, for starters.
Avatar n tn The administration’s program started small five years ago to meet a perceived emergency as the AIDS epidemic spread out of control. It has already provided drug treatment to almost 1.5 million men, women and children and supportive care to millions of others. The focus for the next five years will be on making some of the initial gains sustainable.

While working for the AIDS Treatment Data Network from 2001 to 2005, Lei collaborated with the Kaiser Family Foundation and the National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors on the National AIDS Drug Assistance Program Monitoring Project.
Avatar n tn ^Teak, this is the HIV prevention section, not living with
1795214 tn?1336907509 Condoms reduce but do not guarantee prevention of HIV/AIDS contraction. I recommend that you both take a trip to your nearest Planned Parenthood together and get tested. It can be done in one day so you won't have to wait too long. Planned Parenthood will also give you condoms, or you can buy them at any drug store. You'll find ones that work for you, but I find Trojan Ultra Thin to be the most comfortable for both parties.
Avatar n tn What do you mean with 'went down on her'? You did an oral sex with her vagina?

Avatar f tn Bob Wood, director of the HIV/AIDS control program at the Seattle-based department, said that in 5,460 tests, OraQuick failed to detect at least 8% of 133 people found to be HIV-positive with a non-rapid diagnostic. This compared with the 0.7% rate given on the test's label.....
Avatar m tn I'm not sure about Canada, but have you tried accessing government institutions like your Department of Health or something? If you can't find any, maybe you can try the site south of the border, shouldn't be much different.
Avatar m tn in the public HIV Prevention forum of MedHelp, TEAK and the other moderators maintain that oral sex in all forms is a zero risk activity. Would you agree with this assessment?
