Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids herpes


Avatar n tn Herpes has nothing to do with HIV or AIDS. You can obtain your conclusive test result 3 months post exposure.
Avatar n tn You might want to do a little research, because just as HIV/AIDS, herpes antagonizes the immune system- thus weakening it overtime. Things that a normal immune system could fight off, such as yeast, it soon develops and inability to fight off efficiently, in some people. So you could very well have a yeast problem at the root related to some other STD such as HSV or it may be related to the pills you are taking.
Avatar n tn So both these people are engaged in sexual acts and carries one or more stds, neither being AIDS or HIV. Heres the question(s) can they contract AIDS or HIV from continuing to have unprotected sex with each other with their mutual STDs? Do these STDs mutate so to speak in AIDS or HIV because these 2 people continue to have sex with each other? Or do they remain as the viruses they are? Herpes remains herpes, HPV remains HPV.
Avatar m tn Hi Thank you, was tested positiv for herpes, does that mean hiv/aids? is it true if you have hiv/aids, herpes dont stick to one side of the body but all over?
Avatar m tn I have a small pea size bump on the side of my vagina that looks like a hair bump. My questions are (1)Do I need to take another HIV/AIDS test? (2)is a 13 week HIV/AIDS test accurate? (3) Am I just experiencing a outbreak of the herpes virus? (4) Since the condom pop is there a change I gave him Herpes?
Avatar m tn AIDS is caused by the HIV virus and everyone who has AIDs has the HIV virus but not everyone who has the HIV virus has AIDS. This is because AIDS is a far advanced stage of HIV infection at which time the infection has progressed to the point at which the infected person's immune system cannot any longer prevent certain infections or other complications of immune deficiency from occurring. The virus is what is passed from person to person and is what causes AIDS.
Avatar m tn hello im looking here about the post the guy made : I had what I would call, dry sex. I had my cordoroid shorts on and a the women had her underwear on. She was on the top and rubing. I my shorts on and no underwear on and I was rubbing as well. When she had her orgasm, she is a women who shoots out her vaginal *** or whatever you want to call it when she has a orgasim, that was a first time I have ever seen that.
Avatar m tn HIV is the virus that causes AIDS. They are not separate. However, this is not relevant to your situation since you were never at risk for HIV, or any STD.
Avatar m tn Hey , I had dry sex (sex on clothes he was with panties and im with panties and pants ) and i see that their panties sometimes are wet from their penis and i scared that it could make AIDS transfer to me I asked a doctor he said its cant but here i saw the doctors answer to someone who asked similiar question : heres the guy question : I had what I would call, dry sex. I had my cordoroid shorts on and a the women had her underwear on. She was on the top and rubing.
Avatar m tn For example if one has herpes simplex 2 (HSV2) and HIV the inflammation cells that appear near herpes outbreaks are loaded with HIV. You can read Dr. HHH talk about this in his comments in the expert STD forum. If you are the HIV negative party then this puts you at considerably greater risk than if your partner did not have STDs. So having current STDs goes both ways i.e. if you have them or if your partner has them.
Avatar f tn Confusing information on internet can lead to falsely constructed ideas/information about HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases.I understand that being misinformed about HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases can lead to a lot of frustration! Let me clarify, that there is no risk in the situation you have described.
Avatar m tn Male, 30, Bangalore, India, member since Sep 2016 Hello Sir, I am 30 year old male , 5 year back I had sex with call girl, while having sex condom fell inside her vagina for few seconds, we also had oral sex. I did some HIV test after 1 month of having sex which came Negative, also 6 months back I once again did some H IV test which were also negative. I may get married soon so just wanted to confirm with some more Test, which will ensure that I do not have HIV, AIDS, or "Herpes".
Avatar n tn Latex condoms, when used consistently and correctly, are highly effective in preventing the sexual transmission of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. In addition, consistent and correct use of latex condoms reduces the risk of other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including diseases transmitted by genital secretions, and to a lesser degree, genital ulcer diseases. Condom use may reduce the risk for genital human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and HPV-associated diseases, e.g.

Avatar m tn Fordyce spot? I'm sure it's nothing.
Avatar m tn Because HIV is the causative agent of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), ICL can be referred to as Non-HIV AIDS. As in AIDS patients, Non-HIV AIDS patients exhibit reduced numbers of CD4+ T-lymphocytes, and many Non-HIV AIDS patients have developed the opportunistic infections or otherwise rare cancers associated with AIDS. Non-HIV AIDS patients may comprise perhaps one percent of all AIDS patients.
Avatar m tn You need to understand that HIV and AIDS are two different subjects, HIV is a condition caused by a retrovirus that attacks the body's immune system and it's progression leads to another one known as AIDS. The transition time that takes to progress to AIDS can be different for different individual, depending on one's immune response. Generally for an individual with no medical assistance to HIV would get in to AIDS stage by 9 years (average).
Avatar f tn I was just reading online that the antibodies that build up in your body for herpes can give a positive result on a HIV test. I do get cold sores aka the herpes 1 virus. Can this really affect my HIV test?Would those antibodies coupled with yeast infection make me HIV positive or diagnosed with aids?
Avatar f tn Does a HIV test look for antibodies? I have a Primary Immune Deficiency, so I don't make antibodies. I was tested for Herpes and HIV back in 2013, but I had no clue that I had CVID at the time, so any antibody blood work could have been negative, but I really may have had either. I had unprotected sex and symptoms after that I wrote here about back in 2013, because I was perplexed that my tests were coming back negative when I was having horrible symptoms.
Avatar m tn t understand your comments about his oxygen mask. HIV is not caught by providing that sort of care to AIDS patients. If your hand are going to come into contact with body fluids, standard precautions are to wear protective gloves -- but for the mask, it would be sufficient to just wash your hands or use an alcohol gel (like Purel). Anyway, your own urethra of course would not be at risk from this sort of contact. Finally, knowing your partner has HIV, perhaps you know more about hs infection.
Avatar m tn 2) Herpes simplex virus type 2, the usual cause of genital herpes, increases the risk of HIV transmission. HSV-1, the usual cause of oral herpes, does not. In any case, in the absence of an overt oral herpes outbreak, this should make no difference. 3) Chapped lips or "small cracks" make no difference. 4) You don't need a viral load test. If I were you, knowing what I know, I would not get tested at all and would continue unprotected sex with my wife.
