Avatar m tn He and I actually volunteer for the same AIDS awareness organization. We have both been trained in STD/HIV prevention, but we obviously let one time slip. He works as a transporter at a local hospital, and he told me he was tested and HIV- as of two weeks prior to us hooking up. I was tested using the 30-min blood test on February 21st, 2008, allowing myself 8 weeks. The result was negative.

Avatar n tn My results are in, and I am happy to relay (to whom ever is still reading these posts) that I am free of HIV. I have also decided to become a volunteer at my local AIDS awareness program! I have already attended several lectures, and I am getting more and more passionate about shouting from the roof tops about what we can do as people to rid this world of this disease. Thank you again for all of your kind words and facts!!
Avatar n tn That you could read his profile, learn the man is living with AIDS, teaches HIV/AIDS awareness classes and was a paramedic for many, many years, and then ask him which website he got his information from...........!!!!! Sorry jack, but your insensitivity is nearly as mind boggling as your ignorance.
Avatar m tn s that HPV causes cancer yet developed NO tests for doctors to give during checkups. Theres a test for HIV, tahts a virus too. Just as easily detectable! But aids was more of a concern at the time, so all the $ and public awareness campaigns went to HIV detection and prevention. True story.
Avatar f tn um I was with my bf for like a year anyways he left me about a month ago he just left didnt tell me he was leaving I think he may have hiv or aids and has infected me ive been feeling sick for a while off and on but I have not been tested in about a year anyways ive got this rly bad cough and sometimes I feel like its hard to breathe it been like tht for a couple weeks now I dont have insurance and ive been too much of a coward to go to the hospital because im by myself I cnt tell my family...
Avatar m tn It just never ends. You really can't blame the people for these questions, it is the government's lack of education. If they spent only a fraction of what is spent on HIV/AIDS awareness then people would know how HCV is acquired.
Avatar m tn how many long it takes - ( years ) gets to manifest the AIDS( not the HIV)?
Avatar m tn I had an event at my school for AIDS awareness day yesterday and I thought it would be a good deed to society to get tested. I go to school in the Bronx in NY, and I went to one of the department of health's to get tested. It was not exactly the cleanest place in there and it was FILLED with people getting tested. This sounds really ironic but, my test came up negative but should i go get tested again in the next coming months from risk of getting HIV from the health department place?
Avatar m tn They need to have speakers that teach about hiv / aids-plus allow people see the effects first hand though meetings with people that suffer from hiv / aids and take first hand accounts of every type in order to spread the word to folks...frustrating. Do a film like Al Gore did for global warming-The inconveinant truth about hiv / aids....

Avatar m tn You need to understand that HIV and AIDS are two different subjects, HIV is a condition caused by a retrovirus that attacks the body's immune system and it's progression leads to another one known as AIDS. The transition time that takes to progress to AIDS can be different for different individual, depending on one's immune response. Generally for an individual with no medical assistance to HIV would get in to AIDS stage by 9 years (average).
