Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids facts sheet


Avatar m tn How is HIV passed from one person to another? Which body fluids transmit HIV? How well does HIV survive outside the body? Can I get HIV from anal sex? Can I get HIV from vaginal sex? Can I get HIV from oral sex? Yes, it is possible for either partner to become infected with HIV through performing or receiving oral sex, though it is a less common mode of transmission than other sexual behaviors (anal and vaginal sex).

Avatar m tn HIV and AIDS Forum - Can I catch hiv through oral sex
Avatar m tn The facts are as follows; I have just been for testing at my local AIDS prevention clinic in Alicante, Spain. I have taken the test at 26 days and not 28 for logistical reasons that I won´t bore you with.The HIV test returned negative, as did the syphillis test, but my concern is that they only did the P24 Antigen test.

What is the window period? im looking for % accuracy 12 weeks post exposure. Is the test likely to be conclusive at 12 weeks. Im going to phone them on Monday what questions should i ask??

Avatar n tn it sounds like you have a grip on everything and don't really need us to confirm your facts. The only point I'd make is to be patient with people who are worried about HIV. I have to admit, it's surprising how many times people can be given the same facts and still second-guess things. I've had a lot more risk than most people on the forum, so it strikes me as strange that others experience so much anxiety about no-risk or low-risk experiences.
Avatar f tn Viral hepatitis (VH) is grossly underfunded by the CDC yet, like HIV, it is largely preventable. CDC funding for HIV/AIDS Domestic and Research in 2008 was $691 million vs. $17.5 million for VH despite similar mortality levels.
Avatar m tn or treat diseases such as cancer, HIV/AIDS, diabetes, tuberculosis, syphilis, scarlet fever, shingles, herpes, pneumonia, and prostatitis (inflammation of the prostate). And HCV. . . Colloidal silver can cause serious side effects. One is argyria, a bluish-gray discoloration of the body. Argyria is not treatable or reversible. , .
Avatar n tn one question when testing for hiv/aids ..blood sample does it show only for that or other sort of diseases like syphilis or chalmydia ......????
Avatar n tn I have searched the net more than anyone reguarding HIV and I have yet to see someone say they've seen 6 weeks turn pos later. All I hear is MD's saying theyve never seen it.
Avatar n tn You don't contract AIDS, it's HIV that you contract.
Avatar m tn For the most part they are using the wording of an existing HIV bill and inserting....including....criminalizing exposure to HBV and HCV. Here is the HIV bill (I believe); Here is the wording (I believe this is the one in question) of the new hepatitis bill;
Avatar f tn A very good Lyme doctor that knows a LOT about HIV and AIDS in in San Francisco. If you can get an appointment with him that would be great. (Sorry, I don't remember where you live, so I'm only offering him as a suggestion in case you live near enough.) In 1987-1989 he won this award. (That's not the only one) He then turned his attention to Lyme.
Avatar n tn And if you have HSV 1 which most people due maybe you still have genital herpes. Antibody tests are in fact useful for HIV and other diseases that involve the whole human body, not skin condtions. But remember there are no tests for HPV and plenty of people have that too without knowing it, and it is much more prevalent. I and others just feel that as you see on this website promoting HSV antibody tests for people who never had a cut, blisters or rash is irresponsible medical care.
Avatar f tn It works they same way as it worked with HIV/AIDS. Thanks to public ignorance, to admit HIV was almost the same as admitting you were gay and promiscuous. For the same reasons, to admit HCV is almost the same as admitting you were or are a junkie. I refuse to be terrorized by such ignorance and happily announce the reason for my current state of health to all and sundry.
Avatar m tn Guilt and regret will exacerbate those worries in a HUGE way. The FACTS are, you've been tested, and are STD free. The tests don't lie. Don't get yourself caught in the "what if" trap. That's when you start "what iffing" yourself into a frenzy. "What IF the tests missed an STD?"...."What IF I have a rare strain that isn't showing up?"..."What IF I will be the ONLY person in history to get HIV from kissing"....those kinds of things.
Avatar f tn I'm also wondering if there's some website that might tell me where the various candidates stand in their past support of HIV, since I figure that if they have a good history with supporting HIV/AIDS research that they might care about HCV. Anyway, any info would be appreciated. I hope that this will not end up being a debate because that's not what I'm looking for. Happy Holidays everyone.

1199040 tn?1265239024 This disease mirrors the Aids epedemic, I truely believe this will be worse, because most are asytematic, till years later. I had elevated liver functions for 30 years ,I finally got through to my primary care person to do further tests that resulted in fining my Hep-C.
Avatar m tn They interviewed 92 treatment-naive HCV patients at gastroenterology, methadone maintenance, and HIV clinics at 3 hospitals in New York City and 23 physicians or nurses experienced in treating HCV at other hospitals in New York City. Subjects completed rating scale and standard gamble evaluations of current health and hypothetical descriptions of HCV symptoms and treatment side effects on a scale from 0 (death or worse than death) to 1 (best possible health). RESULTS: .
Avatar n tn I've been with the same partner for 12 years and I've been tested for herpes, HIV/AIDS and all other STDs and they've all come back negative. I'm at a lost as well as to why this is happening. I was scared at first that it may be herpes but my fiance has been to the doctor for his annual check up and after an annual check up once a year and still nothing surfaces then I know for sure that this is not sexually transmitted.

Avatar n tn For me I beleive the fly had laid eggs in a cut on my scalp and the hatch eggs every 2 or 3 weeks, by the way i have spent alot of money for doctors to say i am on drugs and or crazy and they see nothing. but the facts are I got tired of these flies flying out wherever i went, I got my mothers house invested. and mine to. i killed them with balsalmic vinegar and soap water. peppermint down your drains.
Avatar m tn Some nights it was so bad, I slept with the sheet over my head. I know the bugs are real because when I'm not at home I am not plagued by them. If I shower, put on fresh clothes and make it out of the house before slimy, spidery, itchy, static feeling gets on my clothes or arms, I can run my errands or go see a movie without being tormented. Every morning, I strip my bed and wipe down the plastic cover I have on my mattress. Before bed, I wipe it down again and put on the clean sheets.
