Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids facts for kids

aids

Avatar f tn You can begin to help yourself by getting educated about HIV/AIDS. I would urge you to refrain from any form of sexual encounter until you understand how HIV is transmitted. Since you obviously don't know what does and what doesn't constitute safe sex, you should probably abstain until you learn how to protect both you and your partner. I'm sorry if this sounds harsh, but people KNOW there is a risk out there and yet they just keep on having sex and then freaking out.
Avatar f tn t get anything (still looking for that)....I start to hate myself for not speaking up and instead putting my kids in danger. It happens often where I will see a cut on someone or a band-aid and convince myself they may have infected us. I do all that - changing clothes and washing them several times a day because of contamination, washing hands so much I now have a rash, putting band-aids on little scratches when I go in public as to protect myself. I could go on.
Avatar m tn Does anyone know if the info is out there anywhere and if so where to find it? I want to find out what percentage of all hiv/aids cases are from males who have sex with women.
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 Has anyone heard of this hiv like virus in china? If so please share FACTS with me! I'm hoping it's bs.!!
Avatar f tn Can someone help me? When searching the web aids.org, wedmd and other sites regarding HIV. It states you can contract HIV or AIDS thru oral sex. I've been reading thru all the post from the experts on this site and they say no. Can someone please tell me real facts?? Thank you so much...
Avatar n tn My sister recently moved in, she is has AIDS. my husband is concerned that we and our kids can contract it. He is currently doing his CEU hours and HIV explains that we can contract it by sneezing, coughing, muscus. Any body fluids will can live 24 hours on a surface and without knowing if we touch it we can get it. Is this true and How can we prevent it?

Avatar m tn While you do not say much about your exposure history (and do not need to in this case- you have definitive lab test results), the symptoms that you describe are entirely non-specific with many possible causes and are not at all suggestive of HIV, early or late. Further, you have repeated laboratory tests for HIV and syphilis obtained as far out from your exposures as five months which are all negative.
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 You flooded me with PMs and it was all explained to you. Shingles is not a symptom of AIDS or those that have HIV. End of subject.
Avatar n tn is there any chance of it being aids? I have gotten tested for AIDS 6 monthes after I found out i was positive for herpes (2006). I'm going to get tested in the next week anyways, but is there anyone who knows any facts that could make the chance of AIDS very low and that of a yeast infection very high? Thanks for reading and hope someone has an insight.
Avatar m tn Yet in the quarter century of the known HIV/AIDS epidemic, with millions of infected people worldwide, not one household contact is known to have caught HIV, if they did not have sex or share injection equipment with the infected person. Not one. Can I imagine a possibility from the sort of events you describe. Sure. I can also imagine getting hit by a meteorite, but I don't go out of my way to take precautions against it.
Avatar n tn Use the search function on this forum. It's been explained over and over.
Avatar m tn I SERIOUSLY THINK THAT HIV / HEPATITIS B /CANCERS ETC are effects of tested biological weapons under a serious mandatory that all the victims must die off quickly. Also i find out that the approved treatments can still lead to serious health complications like serious kidney problem... This is just a real game that this people are playing with peoples lives..
Avatar n tn The only accurate HIV forums are Medhelp & Aids meds because both forums present the facts.
Avatar m tn I was dating a guy for nine months who I believe is at high risk for having HIV. At the time I had no idea. Three or so months after first having intercourse I started coming down with many health problems. I developed pneumonia, strange blotches on my body, and oral thrush. My doctor didn't figure out that I had pnuemonia for a couple of months and thought that the allergy medication he had me on for the skin blotches had caused the oral thrush.
