Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids brazil


Avatar n tn HIV can be "dormant" in the body for many years, which only means it is not producing any clinical signs or symptoms of illness. However, even if it is clinically "dormant" it is NOT dormant in terms of activity. Even without symptoms, HIV can be reproducing itself by millions of new copies every day.

Avatar n tn html A 22-year-old woman in Brazil who tested positive for HIV likely contracted the virus through the use of manicure instruments that she had shared with an HIV-infected cousin, according to a new report of her case. The woman was diagnosed with HIV in 2013 when she donated blood. Doctors tried to rule out all other possible modes of transmission, said Luis Fernando de Macedo Brigido, of the Adolpho Lutz Institute in São Paulo, Brazil, who was one of the researchers who reported the case.

These tests have window of 60 days after contact.

504029 tn?1399559768 Just FYI, Brazil has a very extensive anti-AIDS education program that has deeply ingrained safer sex as part of the culture in many high-risk groups, gay men in particular. In many respects, Brazil is light years ahead of us when it comes to prevention and treatment alike. The government even supplies free anti-retroviral drugs for anyone who is infected.

Avatar m tn Hello Dr.! I am a 31 y.o. male living in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I´ve lost my father to AIDS when I was 13. I have mild depression and OCD, and that´s why I am on fluoxetin (20mg/day). The problem is that on friday I had sex with a female sex worker. She had long fingernails. I have putted the condom in my penis and rejected receiving oral sex (fearing her teeth would rupture the condom), then she putted her fingers on the tip of the condom, rolling them on it (maybe verifying remaining air there).
