Hiv aids hotline

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids hotline


Avatar n tn That is the Mass. Aids Hotline. Now if you would have taken the time they have the disclaimer also for newly infected. This has nothing to do with anywhere except Mass. if you do not live in Mass. it does not apply. It also states a test taken today, will tell you what your status was six weeks ago.
Avatar n tn If you or anyone you know has any questions about HIV or AIDS, the AIDS Action Hotline is a great resource! The Hotline is open Monday - Thursday: 9:00am - 9:00pm, and Friday: 9:00am - 7:30pm. To reach the HIV Hotline, call 1-800-235-2331 Most people will test accurately for HIV after 6 weeks have passed since their last risk.
Avatar f tn And I live in a rural area where we don’t have free hiv/aids testing! (I googled and we don’t even have any in my state at all) And the last time I went to my doctor in January it was extremely/extremely expensive. I do plan on saving up to get a blood test done soon enough, but I’m just looking for reassurance. I get that really any sexual practice without protection is risky. I’d even say sex with a condom is even risky because you take the risky of it breaking, slipping off, etc.

Avatar n tn Calif AIDS Hotline Minnesota AIDS Hotline GMHC Hotline Dr. Joel Gallant San Francisco City Clinic They all agree in theory HIV transmission is possible with the right elements such as blood in the mouth of the giver. Also, I think that HIV education needs to wake up about one thing: circumcized men are in the MINORITY worldwide. Even in the United States, there is a substantial minority of uncircumsized men. Let's not forget that.
Avatar n tn Hi bigdaddy, well, i thougt already "i am fine".........but why does that guy on the aids-hotline tell me such things ? I think someone at his place should exactly know what he says and he also should be kind of a 'professional'. I am sure he is not a doctor, but he will answer such phone-calls as mine about 30 times (or 20 or 50) a day and 'confuse' people with it ?!?
Avatar n tn 1) UNPROTECTED anal/vaginal sex with an HIV+ partner 2) Sharing drug works (needles) with an HIV+ person 3) HIV+ mother to her unborn child Stay off the HIV websites that aren't connected with either the CDC, The Mayo Clinic or the National HIV/AIDS Foundation. Spend time reading on the HIV Prevention Forum. If you cannot overcome this phobia on your own, then you need to get into therapy for your health anxiety.
Avatar n tn I'm searching for the same answers dude. Hope you find the answers you look for. HIV HOTLINE (800) 367-AIDS Maybe they can help you there. Best of luck!
Avatar f tn NONE. Your HIV anxiety is out of control and I would first suggest you contact your local HIV/AIDS Hotline and get the FACTS. If that does not help you gain the knowledge and reassurance you need to MOVE ON, then your next step is getting into some therapy to work on why you have all these irrational fears.And they ARE irrational. You can continue to live your life cowering in fear or you can empower yourself with knowledge. It is now up to you.

Avatar n tn I also talked to 2 other doctors who said not to worry about it. I also called the HIV/AIDS hotline and they said not to worry, but I am so scared. I wanted some opinions on what to do and if I should get tested for the 8th time in a year. Please respond. P.S. I do not believe that it soaked through and I obsessively wash my hands with anti bac.

Avatar m tn Your situation doe not even demand for a test and you are talking about PEP, which is certainly out of question because you were never at any risk. HIV can not swim in bath tub, so rest assured, they did not reach you :).
Avatar m tn And for example Mass Aids Hotline says 6 weeks were as OHio says 3 months. Can anyone explain this to me? Has anyone heard of poeple testing positve after ten weeks? Worried.
Avatar n tn I think it's better to come here and talk to others who may have your same fears or to contact your local HIV/AIDS Hotline and get answers from real people, many of whom are living with AIDS. I also encourage anyone who is sexually active to get educated about protect yourself and the people you love.
Avatar f tn And lastly, you really need to get yourself educated about HIV! Call the local HIV/AIDS Hotline and request literature. Talk to those folks, ask questios. Contact the National HIV/AIDS Education Assoc. and request literature. If there is a Gay/Lesbian Counseling Center in your area, go there and get some counseling! OCD is the ONLY thing you need to deal with. Please get the help you need so you can stop putting yourself through this kind of hell. I wish you the best.
Avatar n tn I googled, called the CDC and the local Aids Hotline and they all told me this is very risky. I found your forum today and there are several times where people say that fingering (with precum) to anal doens't transmit HIV. I am confused about the discrepancy of opinions especailly with the CDC and the hotline.
Avatar m tn nobody knows ive done this. i called NJ hiv aids hotline and i have asked them about the risk of getting an hiv from saliva through an anal fissures and she cracked up on me and she bursted with laughter. i didnt think it was appropriate for her to do it but i let her go away with it. tell me if its necessary for me to get tested..
Avatar n tn If he is clean, then why am I feeling like this? Maybe he doesn't know he has it. I called an Aids Hotline and they told me my risk was extremely low and they were confident to tell me I did not have much to worry about and that my 7 week test was accurate. To this I responded that if I didn't go take a 3 month exam would they feel confident in letting me do that. They said yes.
Avatar n tn I just got off the phone with the Illinois hiv/aids hotline. I found their number on a web site that said you could call them if you were awaiting test results and needed to speak with someone (the site did not say it was in Illinois). I called them, told them my situation, and she (in a friendly way) laughed at me and told me that testing beyond 3 months is unnecessary, and a waste of time.
Avatar n tn The antibody test came back negative, and I put it out of my mind until I recently became involved in another relationship. I heard that delayed results may occur in immunosuppressed individuals. The AIDS hotline I spoke to said that for such people the recommendation is to wait 3 months to test. Now I am worried my test results may not be accurate as for over 4 years I have been on medication to suppress my immune system for ulcerative colitis (mercaptopur).
Avatar f tn If he used protection when engaging in penetrative vaginal or anal sex with his girlfriend then he would have never had a risk of hiv transmission.Oral sex is zero risk and his daughter is conclusively negative and so are you,however it needs to be established if he did engage in any unprotected penerative sex anytime before that test was taken in august which was the time she passed away aswell.If he didn,t he,s conclusively negative and you can all move forward.
Avatar m tn For more information about testing, please call the AIDS Action Hotline at 800-235-2331. Why do some sources advise waiting longer than 6 weeks for HIV testing? Most people will test accurately for HIV after 6 weeks have passed since their last risk. In some cases where a person has a highly compromised immune system, such as those in which a person has recently undergone chemotherapy or an organ transplant, it may take 3-6 months for their body to develop enough antibodies to test positive.
Avatar m tn Another aids hotline chat (just received their response) thought this could be a risky situation depending on actively bleeding cuts and how much. I clearly didn't see all the cuts on his hands and this was so random and terrible way to know anything and my child could be at risk of a disease that could alter her life because she ate a hotdog improperly handled by some one at the fairgrounds...if this was your child what would you do?
Avatar n tn I had protected vaginal sex (she actually inspected the condom afterward to make certain that it was intact and we discussed that she always, always used them for her protection) and unprotected oral sex. The California Aids Hotline said I had zero risk and that I did not need testing. That is what this forum suggests as well. In any event, I plan to be tested for everything as soon as possible. Just in case.
Avatar n tn However I'm feeling really scared now that I might have gotten something from these exposures even tho I have already posted a question in the HIV Prevention (Expert) forum and gotten a reply from Dr. HHH. I have also posted similar questions to another forum as well as a local AIDS Hotline. All of them claim that my exposures were only theoretically possible, but actual risk is very low while some even says it's zero.
