" DR HANSFIELD "I am sure you can find lots of people who believe that HIV is transmitted by oral sex, but you will not find scientific data to support this unrealistic concern..." DR HOOK "HIV is not spread by touching, masturbation, oral sex or condom protected sex."- DR.
Avatar m tn According to the ever-so popular and quite sickening myth, humans can get HIV and AIDS from dogs through bestiality. Do you beleive this to be true? Why? (supporting facts would be helpful) 4. The CDC, otherwise known as Center for Disease control, states that you cannot get HIV or AIDS from dogs. However, the CDC does not specify any means of viral transmition. Why do you think this is? 5. Over 80 percent of my findings on the internet state that you cannot get HIV/AIDS from dogs.
Avatar m tn Hello. Again. Why are you so worried? Because you have severe HIV ANXIETY, that's why. And since you won't believe what you've been told on the HIV Forum, what you've been told on various HIV/AIDS Hotlines, what I gave you to read and what I've told you numerous times, then it's time you got into therapy. You can only be given the FACTS just so many times before a line must be drawn. I will outline those facts once more and then, for ME, the line will be drawn.
Avatar m tn During these years, there will be no prominent symptoms of HIV/AIDS. One of the dangerous facts about AIDS is that although, during asymptomatic stage, there will be no symptoms, the virus can still be transferred from the infected person.
Avatar m tn I have read many conflicting things on the internet about the asymptomatic time period of hiv, I have read the average amount of years before you develop AIDS without treatment is 10 years. What is the average amount of time before most people know they have hiv (develop symptoms that alert them) and does this differ by age at time of infection. Do people in their 20's differ from those in their 40's 50's and even 60's?
Avatar m tn Has anyone heard of this hiv like virus in china? If so please share FACTS with me! I'm hoping it's bs.!!
557003 tn?1222577226 And these 2 questions are not really important but just out of curiosity, what are those odds for heterosexual women and homosexual male and female? What is the current population of HIV and AIDS infected people in the US and Asia and different countries around the world? There must be a site somewhere that can give you these figures...
Avatar m tn If oral sex was a true and worrisome risk for HIV, there would be dozens, hundreds, thousands of new reported infections all the time. There aren't. Doctors, and organizations have a RESPONSIBILITY to their patients, and to the public, respectively......to be cautious and conservative. The posters on this forum do not have to be conservative. We can more or less be flat out to the point. You see the difference? So, sure...
Avatar f tn Statistics from HIV Aids council Australia,''of the 25,000+ people living in Australia with HIV 82% are men who have sex with men,10% hetro sexual community,8% iv drug users''.How is my statement incorrect??
Avatar m tn Oral sex has a very small risk but finally a risk, there are a lot if variables that increse or reduce the risk, and there are a lot of studies, some said 0% risk others said 8% risk, but the CDC (by the way very conservative) says1 in 20000, in receiving oral sex an 1 in 10000 in giving oral sex (to man), that can be reduced with condoms, and increased if there is visible blood in the mouth or by eyaculating in the mouth, and the other variables are the viral load of the hiv + partner (high at
Avatar m tn The internet can be very helpful if you learn to accept the facts and only read information that is based on facts not fiction.No one has ever contracted HIV from having a finger inserted in their anus in over 30 years of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.
Avatar f tn You could get hepatitis C through contact with an infected person’s blood.
Avatar n tn 30+ Years of study and research now move on.
Avatar m tn s just that I read on the cdc site and other forums that oral sex is indeed a risk for HIV and studies have shown this. It leaves me confused and as you know, anxious. Thanks for the answers and support.
