264121 tn?1313029456 "Thanks to the success of HIV meds, HIV patients now have a NORMAL life expectancy.....that's 77.8 years. We can't say the same for Hep C patients. " This is not factually correct. HIV patients have a shorter than average lifespan. Much depends on age, time of infection, start of antiretroviral therapy, and means of acquisiton.This just came out in Lancet: "Life expectancy for HIV positive people is still not normal.
372366 tn?1284403873 I think you are both Canadian. Interesting twist here. Lets say that the disease in question was HCV and not HIV/AIDS. And lets say that the Ontario guy was infected by blood products from US prisons. (I'm sure you guys are aware of that incident from the 1990's). And, as you also then know that it was former President Clinton who approved/enabled the blood products to flow to Canada. Then, would the former president bear some responsiobility and be subject to accessory charges?

Avatar f tn Hello everyone, Sorry but this post is gonna be kinda long. I do not have any specific questions I am just feeling very lonely and need to vent. I hope that is okay. Okay here goes, well I am a 28 year old female and I am 100 percent totally and completely convinced that I have aids. This is my story.. 10 years ago this November, I had unprotected sex twice with a guy that I didn't know very well and have thought that I contracted HIV ever since.
Avatar m tn t put yourself at risk for HIV...as oral sex is not a risk for HIV...ONLY unprotected vaginal or anal sex (sexually speaking).
Avatar m tn MY SON HAD UNPROTECTED SEX WITH A PROSTITUTE. HE IS 17 AND HE WAS A VIRGIN...HE IS CIRCUMSISED, DOES NOT DRINK OR USE DRUGS. I AM VERY SCARED AND DEPRESSED THAT HE MIGHT HAVE STI OR HIV. HE HAS BEEN TESTED FOR URINAL YSIS/FECES AFTER SIX DAYS AMD CAME BACK ALL NORMAL, BUT IS NOT CONCLUSIVE BECAUSE IT HAS NOT BEEN LONG ENOUGH. PLEASE IF YOU CAN GIVE ME PIECE OF MIND.
Avatar n tn If i gave head to a girl what are the odds of contracting the aids virus. I know she was in Chile this summer and had sex there with a Chilean boy. And there's a sex revolution in Chile everyone is having sex. I am worried she might have contracted the virus and maybe me too.

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 m tn Both of your exposures (unprotected receptive oral and deep kissing) do not put you at any risk of HIV. Your feelings are due to stress, anxiety or guilt. You are fine, move on with your life normally.
Avatar m tn since then i am feeling a little scared because i have heard that people living with hiv aids witness no symptoms at all,, so even after testing within 6 months (december to july 2013) can i conclude that i am HIV negative,, why is this concern worrying that i may be HIV POSITIVE, Please do reply ,, waiting in anticipation for a favorable reply Kind Regards From Nepal
Avatar m tn Yes, I had unprotected sex with my husband many a times in past several years.
