Avatar m tn HHH and other doctors has stated that hiv-2 infection in the u.s. is minimal. Most hiv tests also test for both hiv-1/hiv-2.

Don't worry as you stated you had a low risk exposure and everything will be fine. Live your life and post your negative results.
Avatar m tn Unless someone lives in an HIV endemic area such as an inner city, is an immigrant from a country with high HIV prevalence, is bisexual or a partner of a bisexual, or is an injection drug user or commercial sex worker, the prevalence of HIV in people without these risk factors is extremely low- less than 1 in 1000 people.
Avatar n tn If you would read instead of cut and paste you would have read that women make up one quarter of all new cases of HIV in the US each year. In 2005, 44,198 AIDS diagnoses in the 50 states and the District of Columbia, 11,710 (26%) were for women. From the beginning of the epidemic (1981) through 2005, women accounted for 182,822 diagnoses, a number that represents 19% of the 956,666 AIDS diagnoses in the 50 states and the District of Columbia during this period.

Avatar m tn Last month I was in Nigeria where apparently incidents of AIDS is very high. I am male of 47 years. I had unprotected oral sex by a female sex worker for 10 min or so. I did not notice any blood on my penis subsequent to the act. 7 weeks have passed. I have not got any fever. But have felt slight pain a few times in my armpits. Also, I had muscular pain prior to this exposure which continued. There has been no diarrohea.
Avatar m tn Some guys sued the condom manufacturers in Nigeria (Gold Circle) for contracting HIV whilst using the condom. One guy insisted that he used it correctly all the time but still contracted the virus. I am really scared that the same may happen to me. Please comment.
Avatar m tn I had a possible exposure(vaginal) about three months ago due to condom failure, she was a friend and insisted on condoms before sex, I stopped before ejaculation and continued with a new condom. The prevalence of HIV in Nigeria is less than 4% according to statistics. I went to a strange lab in Nigeria they took my blood, centrifuged it and ten minutes later gave me a sheet of paper and ushered me out. This was not a government laboratory so their standards are questionable.

Avatar m tn It is said the risk of acquiring HIV from a single episode of receiving fellatio from an HIV-infected partner is around 1 chance in 10,000. By itself, that translates into a daily BJ by an infected partner for 27 years before you would expect to catch the infection. And your partner says he doesn't have HIV! But let's say there is a 1% chance he is infected, either because he is lying or he was in the window period the last time he was infected. That makes your chance of having caught HIV 0.
206807 tn?1331939784 This not only means that other diseases with broader reaches, such as HIV and AIDS, take precedence in scientific research, but that drug companies have had virtually no financial incentive to spend millions of dollars on medicines and inoculations for so few people -- especially people who lack the means to pay for it. "There's nothing magical about getting a drug or a vaccine for Ebola.
Avatar f tn -funded doctors failed to give the AIDS drug AZT to all the HIV-infected pregnant women in a study in Uganda even though it would have protected their newborns. U.S. health officials argued the study would answer questions about AZT's use in the developing world. The other study, by Pfizer Inc., gave an antibiotic named Trovan to children with meningitis in Nigeria, although there were doubts about its effectiveness for that disease.

Avatar m tn A crawling sensation in skin is seen in people who are very anxious and stressed out. Very dry skin (you rule this out) and disorders of thyroid gland all can precipitate a crawling sensation. The other possibility is Morgellons disease often mimics scabies. The disease is believed to be caused by weak immune systems in people that have contracted the tick-borne Lyme Disease at some point in their life. It can also be a fungal infection like Tinea corporis.
Avatar n tn Hi I m a 28 year old and suffer some degree of ED in recent. I start masturbated since I m 19 and usually use porn as a form of visual stimiulation. I have observed that I have lost the ability to maintain erect during intercource or I only get weak erection. My question is: does masturbation in association with porn will "exhaust" my interest towards sex and create a negative impact on my ability to get aroused in real sex?
