Avatar m tn hello , i saw here that u told a guy that Skin contact with genital moisture doesn't carry much risk, certainly not for HIV guy that wat u mean by that i mean in dry sex u mean that aids cant be of a dry sex?
Avatar m tn Skin contact with genital moisture doesn't carry much risk, certainly not for HIV. Conceivably herpes and HPV might be transmitted, but even those are low risk. I don't recommend getting tested for anything unless symptoms show up. A point of education is raised by your use of the words "dry sex". That term normally is used by STD and sexual behavior experts for something entirely different than your experience.

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 She could, however, have another std, like chlamydia, herpes, warts, etc. Those are FAR more common than HIV is. You should be tested for stds.
Avatar n tn not necessarily. why don't you go see a doctor?
Avatar f tn I am very scared I have hiv or almost aids. Met a guy at hotel non protected oral protected anal. I have herpes and like an idiot when he came I immediately rubbed his com all over my penis. I feel his is how I became infected as I may have has micro abrasions. I know this is not he norm but here is what happened, 36 hours later I got very ill threw up terrible diarreha and a new rash in between my genitals and anus. Had a very sore lower back dry mouth headache and fatigue.
Avatar f tn Herpes are a lot more easier to transmit than HIV. You can transfer the herpes virus from skin to skin contact. HIV is primarily transmitted "inside" the body, i.e., having unprotected vagina/anal sex. The "bumps" you describe on your neck do not sound like herpes at all.
Avatar m tn Basic Overview & Information on AIDS & HIV AIDS - acquired immunodeficiency syndrome - was first reported in the United States in 1981 and has since become a major worldwide epidemic. AIDS is caused by the human immunodeficiency virus (HIV). By killing or damaging cells of the body's immune system, HIV progressively destroys the body's ability to fight infections and certain cancers.

Avatar n tn I have since gotten rid of it but have not gotten tested. Is there a possibility that I could have teh aids or HIV? It is now July of 2010 and I feel fatigue every now and then.
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 The co-worker that needed antivirals (and I'm wondering if they meant anti-retrovirals as antivirals are for herpes, and antiretrovirals are for HIV), that was from a work related injury that had nothing to do with you. I wish you luck in finding out what is going on, but its not HIV. As Emma said, the tests tell more the symptoms.
Avatar f tn *HPV is not the same as herpes or HIV (the virus that causes AIDS)* You were not specifically tested for HSV, however you were prescribed Acyclovir: (Brand name: Zovirax) One of a group of antiviral drugs that acts against the herpes viruses, including: Herpes simplex 1 which causes cold sores Herpes simplex 2 which causes genital herpes Varicella-zoster which causes both chickenpox and shingles Epstein-Barr virus which causes infectious mononucleosis Herpes Zoster(shingles) Infections Patien
Avatar n tn I got checked out and I now know that I don't have herpes,chlamydia,gonorrhea,syphillis,HIV or AIDS. It's nice to know for certain one way or the other !!!
Avatar n tn Did anyone get back their results?
Avatar n tn Hi, Can Herpes,Warts and TPHA get to AIDS. What i mean is i have Herpes,Warts and TPHA for which i have and been treated,Will these on a later stage convert to AIDS,HIV.Is there any possibility for such.Are there any cases.
Avatar m tn Many people who have been infected with HIV have few or no HIV symptoms, HIV testing is the only way to know for sure if you are infected or not. As for your question, yes people infected with the virus can go years before any symptoms show up.
Avatar m tn However you can give an end to your fears by getting the bood tests for herpes done.Two of the most confirmatory tests for herpes are herpes select and Western blot.Other very confirmatory test is HSV IgG Type-Specific ELISA. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps.
Avatar m tn A suggestion is maybe he should meet "people with HIV" to show that even if he did have HIV its not the end of the world. People with "HIV" are living 30+ years after the diagnosis, medicines are getting better, people's awareness is getting better, and people with "HIV" are educating people and how to prevent "HIV" I realize that after (12) weeks of HIV negative test that I do not have HIV. I have been tested (5) times in (12) weeks.
