Avatar n tn I have had some sexual coarses unprotected, but I went for my medical check up last year and tested out negative so far 6 months have passed and no sign of HIV or AIDS symptoms. Unfourtnalty a swollen gland appeared under my neck 2 days ago. There is no pain when I touch it what so ever, I told my father about this and he said I had them as a child swollen glands appearing out of no where with no pain, could this be history repeating its self? Or could this be the first sign of a HIV infection?
Avatar m tn But sometimes iam afraiding about aids. If he has aids, then iam also get aids. I cant tell this to anyone. Till now i didnt take HIV test. I didnt have any HIV symtoms. But i have a doubt. His semen touched on my body only. By touching the semen can aids spread? please reply to me.. Sometimes iam getting mad by thinking about this.
Avatar m tn Twenty-six seronegative patients with AIDS had died, and 1 could not be located, but the race, age, reported risk factors for HIV infection, and history of AIDS-defining conditions of these 27 patients were comparable to those of HIV-seropositive patients with AIDS.
Avatar m tn As of November 2009, 23,731 HIV/AIDS cases have been reported in the country (National HIV/AIDS Program of the Ministry of Health). The Joint United Nations Program on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) estimates that in 2007, 35,000 Salvadorans were living with HIV (UNAIDS 2008 Report on the Global AIDS Epidemic). Incidence appears to have declined since 2004, but there is a fear that HIV/AIDS cases are underreported due to lack of an effective monitoring system.
Avatar m tn Sex worker or just someone out in the street, using protection was your winning bet. Since this event is 2 years ago have you got tested yet? I am sure you didn't contract HIV. Get tested. If it's negative it's conclusive in my mind. Unless you had other sexual contact after that incident Oct 2007. PS: Don't self diagnosis yourself and read junk on the internet. It doesn't help.
Avatar f tn Honestly,you have nothing to worry about.You are not going to be the first woman in history to contract Hiv in this manner.Don't waste your time and money testing for a zero risk situation.
Avatar m tn Even your symptoms, every one of them, is most consistent with the physical manifestations of anxiety. HIV and other STDs do not cause such symptoms. Your brief sexual history suggests you are at little or no risk of HIV. In other words, I agree this probably is "all in [your] mind and causing [you] to worry and stress more than normal". Despite your low risk for HIV, you should be tested for it.
Avatar n tn The patient, that this may have occurred with, was very sick and looked like they could have had full blown AIDS. After looking at the health history, no HIV/AIDS diagnosis was found; only myelodysplastic syndrome. No history of HAART treatment was noted; only antineoplastic agents. I have been really worried about this ever since. What is my level of risk if the patient was HIV positive (with full blown AIDS), indicating a high viral load, and if a tiny fleck of blood hit my cracked lip?
Avatar f tn Once you have HIV, you will ALWAYS test positive for HIV. I have reviewed your history here, and it does not even seem that you have had any recent risks for HIV. Your encounters have been no-risk events.
Avatar n tn Anyone can have lipodystrophy and not be related to HIV or AIDS. Those that have lipodystrophy in HIV is usually due to the HAART medications one takes. Zerit is one of the medications that has a history of causing lipodystrophy.
Avatar f tn Your situation involves personal contact with an object in air ( hand, maybe blood, maybe cut, maybe fluids, mouth, finger, etc. ). You will be happy to learn that you had no risk, because you can't get hiv from personal contact except unprotected penetrating vaginal or anal with a penis, neither of which you did and you didn't share hollow needles to inject with which is the only other way to acquire hiv - there are ONLY 3 ways to get hiv.
Avatar m tn This usually occurs in the starting months of HIV infection when HIV/AIDS - early symptoms of HIV infection start surfacing. Some of the most common symptoms in the first few months of infection (if the virus has infected) are sore throat, digestive problems, tiredness, rashes on skin, aches, pains and swollen lymph nodes.
Avatar m tn that is the only time i had a sex(if u can call it that way) with a stranger(im faithfull to my wife althroughout)thats why now im very nervous of having an STD,HIV/AIDS....i know nothing about his sexual not sure if i dont have a wound in my penis during that time(sometimes the skin on the shaft of my organ become irritated and scarred when i use soap to masterbate). my question iswhat is the risk of me getting an HIV/AIDS in that incident? thanks...
Avatar m tn Dear doctor, Can HIV antibody be detected in last stage of AIDS patient by elisa test.One of my relative had several exposure in 9 years ago with prostitude when he was in a UN mission in africa. Some web site for example google books says antibody can not be detected at advanced stage of infection. Is it right.........He is suffering from some infection for months........His elisa test is negative.........please answer.....
Avatar f tn Hi all so glad I found this site after searching for help all weekend, I haven't slept and lost my appetite completely now. Basically Saturday night, 2 nights ago I met with a guy of a chat site. Basically we are both bisexual and agreed to meet. I know nothing about his sexual history / past / health .. Stupid I know. Oral sex was given unprotected (both ways) .. I haven't any noticeable sores, cuts etc in my mouth and consider myself to be clean and hygienic.
Avatar m tn I am just being curious here but has any one in recorded history ever gotten HIV from "fingering" or a handjob. It just seems that a lot of us have been exposed to this level. Around the hand most people have little scrapes or loose skin generally due to the norms of life either as part of what we do at work or through normal everyday household chores and thsu the concern for most of us. Would anybody on this forum know or have heard of transmission via these exual activities.
Avatar f tn but i have heard that body fluid can enter the body through skin is it possible that can u have aids?
Avatar n tn im swettting and all stressd up by the time i started thinking abt it . please help me . i cant sleep becaouse i think of this risks . im not sure she is HIV positive . i used the condom .
