Avatar n tn You aren't going to contract HIV from oral sex. Toothaches have nothing to do with HIV transmission.
936016 tn?1332769204 Many of the questions we answer on this Forum and also the Freedomhealth Sexual Health Forum relate to anxiety about HIV and also possible early HIV symptoms. One of the main problems in relying on HIV symtoms themselves is that they are notoriously vague and almost all the symptoms may in fact be symptoms of a different disease. The best method always of diagnosing HIV is to have a modern HIV test.

Avatar m tn I'm constantly looking up HIV videos and articles like I already have it. In some ways knowing would be better than suspense. I now just have dry skin period. I have dry skin on my nose,eyebrows,and under my beard which I never had before. Then along comes symptom#11-folliticus. My hair is now coarse and brittle. I can litteraly sit and pull out hairs from my beard without much effort somtimes revealing inflamed bumps where the hair follicle has gotten full of bacteria.
480448 tn?1426952138 I am very honored to be a regular contributor on the HIV Prevention Forum here at MH. The forum is very busy, and we often get the same inquiries over and over. I figured that putting together a journal entry covering the most popular topics, and just laying out the facts may be helpful. I also invite Lizzie Lou and Teak to share their thoughts, and to cover anything I may have missed.

Avatar n tn Had you come to my clinic, the most we would have done is a single HIV antibody test 4-6 weeks after exposure. The risk of catching HIV from any single episode of vaginal sex is too low to be worth all that testing, regardless of the apparent hand-job trauma. The chance your partner had HIV probably was very low, and the chance you would have caught HIV--even if whe was infected--probably was 1 in 1000 or less.
Avatar m tn I've read a lot of articles about it in the internet and was shocked learning that this might have something to do with HIV/AIDS. This concerns me though I only had one sexual intercourse last December of 2012 (the girl is not a prosti). We did it without condom cause I wanted that time to really feel the whole thing -- and that decision is what troubles me now.
Avatar n tn A study by researchers from the University of California, San Francisco's Center for AIDS Prevention Studies (CAPS) found that the probability of HIV infection through unprotected receptive oral sex with a man to be statistically estimated at zero.
Avatar m tn Thank you for your input. Yes the sex were protected, but I have read several article on hiv and aids since my worries began. There are claims out there that condom does not provide 100% protection. It is only lowering the risks to the minimum possible nearly zero. I had cold which can be assimilated to mild flu, the coughing and headache persist. I start feeling the presence of enlarged lymph node.
Avatar m tn I've been listening to several articles on NPR about AIDS, HIV, and the various treatment options. One of the takeaways was that the various treatments have to be monitored carefully otherwise the HIV virus will adapt and make the regiment ineffective. What I would like to know is if thie means that we will eventually encounter a further problem with strains of HIV that will be resistant to the known treatments?
Avatar f tn I'm sure you already know that it doesn't live on surfaces but if you were to be injected with HIV, your chances of becoming HIV positive are 0.03%. That is pretty darn small. As to whether you would feel it if somebody stabbed a needle into your arm, I would have to say yes. Picture in your mind you walking down the street and somebody coming up and poking a needle into you.
Avatar n tn I have been extremely worried if I contracted HIV from this woman, due to mainly not knowing her story, and this incident being a one night stand. I was tested at 3 months for HIV 1 & 2 and thank God negative, and I was tested also at just over 6 months for both HIV 1 & 2, and thank God again, negative. The CDC officially states that 97 percent test positive by 3 months, and in the rare occasions it can take up to 6 months.
742573 tn?1241602553 and ive been on all these websites trying to find stuff out, and one half are saying that the numbers of people with aids/hiv have risen, and the other half are saying that the risk of getting it are low or reading articles where a doctor has said the risk is small to none help - i dont know what to believe and im so stressed and i feel like i cant live normally and that i will never have a relationship and everyone will be asking why and i cant just say oh i think ive got aids because im so sc
1024580 tn?1331577721 Romero and others, in their article describing an excellent and diligent long term study failed to identify any risk at all in transfer of HIV from an HIV positive to an HIV negative partner through oral sex. In total 19000 episodes of oral sex were documented amongst 135 heterosexual couples over ten years and in 34% of these episodes the HIV positive male ejaculated into the HIV negative females' mouth. (Romero J et al.
Avatar n tn After this i started reading many articles about aids etc. and was very frightened!I had short breath for 3 days and a little bit my neck was hurting me!In the 3rd day i said to myself i'm ok, i must fight every day etc. and from the other day all symptoms gone away!I also have to tell you that before 8 years i had panic attacks and was tooking medicines because i thought that i will have heartattack etc.! And last month i had a protected sex activity again with a CSW!
Avatar f tn Doctor(s), one can go crazy from reading all the HIV related articles and not help but panic. Therefore, I turn to you for an objective opinion. I am a bisexual married man (40) that recently made the mistake of stepping out of my marriage for the first time. I recently had receptive anal sex with another man I did not really know. He was in his 50's, was married and a professional. I asked him about his STD status and he claimed he was 'clean'.
Avatar m tn HIV is an infection. ARC and AIDS are the symptomatic breakdown of the immune system as a result of HIV (the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome and the AIDS Related Complex.) Cytomegalovirus (HHV) and some of the other things that go along with AIDS can mimic MS when present in the brain. I guess I can say this as a 49 year old gay man, but "Why are you worried since we all know to play safe?" I am of that generation that watched huge portions of the gay population "die off.
Avatar n tn Latex condoms, when used consistently and correctly, are highly effective in preventing transmission of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. In addition, correct and consistent use of latex condoms can reduce the risk of other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including discharge and genital ulcer diseases. While the effect of condoms in preventing human papilloma virus (HPV) infection is unknown, condom use has been associated with a lower rate of cervical cancer, an HPV-associated disease.
Avatar m tn If you had AIDS your wounds etc would not heal. Stop reading health articles that are published with an agenda to get maximum viewers and the best way to do so is by striking fear into people. Address your anxiety. You may have borderline generalized anxiety disorder and are obsessed with health anxiety specifically STDs.
Avatar m tn HIV is no more common in people with shingles than without it. Further, when shingles occurs with HIV, it is only in advanced infection, i.e. overt AIDS -- generally many years after catching the virus. And it is rarely if ever the only manifestation of advanced HIV infection; it occurs almost entirely in persons with other obvious symtoms of AIDS, other opportunistic infections, and so on" However, I have read that shingles can be a sign of early HIV infection. Is this false?
Avatar m tn com/other-health-news/other-health-news-topics/hpv/3730-aids-2012-hpv-doubles-risk-of-hiv-infection I suppose they may not be definitive, but they certainly got me worried. Do you still think that warts are not a risk (at least in my situation, which I've described above)?
Avatar f tn And I know you've answered questions regarding antibiotics before, but there was a plethora of articles on the internet about a connection between Minocycline and HIV, so I feel it is a different question. Thank you so much.
Avatar f tn You've never had an risk then what is your concern? It has nothing to do with HIV.
Avatar n tn My last STD screen (including HIV) was about 6 months ago and negative. Since then I've had protected anal intercourse about 4 times. Last saturday night I got really drunk and went home with another guy I had met that night. We fooled around for a bit, and then he put his **** in me without a condom on. I was drunk and stupid, and let it go for about 2 minutes or so (hard to remember exactly how long) before asking him to put a condom on which he did straight away.
