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 The chance you caught HIV from a heterosexual exposure is extremely low, especially if your partner and you are both long-time UK residents, i.e. not immigrants from an country with high rates of HIV/AIDS. Finally, it is nearly impossible to have HIV for 9 years and not know it; by now you would be very sick, perhaps dead. So there is absolutely no chance HIV is a problem here.
Avatar f tn Your english is perfect and yes it is true that Croatia has a very low rate of HIV infection.The message is getting through loud and clear in your country.Here in canberra where I live there is only 300 people who are HIV+ from a population of close to 600,000.We are done an excellent job in prevention.More needs to be done in countries like South Africa where the rates of HIV infection are in the million,it's a shocking mess and the government is to blame.
Avatar n tn However, my understanding that any increased propensity to heterosexual transmission is in the lower range of the possibilities you quote from some websites. From my understanding of the epidemiology of HIV/AIDS in Thailand, it is not plausible that the vaginal sex transmission risk is anything like the higher rates you cite. That said, there are no data. The transmission risk data in the US, published by CDC (e.g.
Avatar m tn t have special risks for HIV (injection drug use, past partnership with an infected male partner, immigrant from a country with high HIV/AIDS rates, etc), then the chance she has HIV is very low, probably no higher than 1 chance in several thousand. And with entirely unprotected vaginal sex, if the woman has HIV, the chance of transmission to her male partner is around once for every 2,000 exposures.
Avatar n tn But I would share with you a real case here in my country, The doctor was infected cause the blood of AIDS patient shoot into his eyes. So i wanna know how long the HIV will lose the ability to infect exposing in the air? Thx again.
Avatar m tn After I asked my question last night ( & got quick replies from Lizzie Lou & Teak- thank you) I read through this site for HOURS!. I started reading about 9pm and stopped around 4:30 am! It seems to me after reading all the questions & replies that HIV is very difficult to get... even through some 'questionable risky' behaviors.

Avatar n tn hi all, i live in a country where the HIV rate is very, very low, i recently had a wild night at a friends bachelor party. The reason i am worried is because i believe 50% chance the girl was a transexual (post-op), i read somewhere that these people have the highest risk of having HIV therefore i have been worried.
Avatar n tn Nobody here can help what a clinic in Albuquerque thinks of heterosexual HIV infection rates, but I can tell you that the data suggest otherwise! HIV infection rates are rising across the board, and are hitting disproportionately those demographics who used to think they didn't have a risk! While gay males currently compose a disproportionate share of HIV cases, that tables can and are quickly turning. You should never think that probability alone can prevent transmission.
Avatar m tn so you are sharing toilet paper? eewwhhhhh ! ! ! this is not a risk for contracting hiv.
Avatar m tn Hi, The above doesnt mean that single exposure wont lead to an infection. That is stated over all in general observation as HIV is a fragile virus to get transmitted via penis-vaginal intercourse in single go. Its diffucult not impossible.
Avatar f tn of heterosexually infected males. In 30+ years of the HIV/AIDS epidemic in the US, only a relative handful of men (a few thousand) have acquired HIV through heterosexual exposre -- in a country with something like 120 million heterosexually active males. Further, most men infected heterosexually were the spouses or other regular partners of infected women, not infected during casual, one-time partnerships.
Avatar m tn Hi Teak, Thanks for your answer. Actually i really don't know whether balanitis or yeast infection on my penis. I really confuse when my doctor said that condom can't prevent HIV transmission. But when i read some topic here, i'd found that if we use condom (condom isn't break) then we should worry on nothing. I hope my doctor was wrong since there is "black campaign" against effectivity of condom at my country. They said HIV virus can pass through pores at condom.
Avatar n tn I think, vols_29 is right and a country like India (where I am originally from) has significant number of hiv+ people are they are bisexual or heterosexual. They got either from their homosexual partner or from their wives. For sure, the best way to know your status is to get tested. You can even do a blood test right now as the time is more than 8 weeks after your exposure. Still, I believe (obviously according to Dr. HHH and Dr.
Avatar n tn Most likely there is some risk for chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, herpes, etc, but the rates are highly variable from one country to another, and within various countries. The odds for these STDs probably are higher than for HIV, but still are strongly in your favor, probably under 1% chance of infection maybe under 1 in 10,000. Prophylactic antibiotic therapy is not usually recommended in this setting.
624252 tn?1221763098 Hi! I wouldn't worry too much. The risk of contracting HIV is much lower than people think and the governments wants us to believe. In direct comparison to everyday probabilities the risk of contracting HIV from a (European!) sex worker when not using condoms is just 40% higher than dying due to a crash on a US airplane, but it is about 55x more risky to take the car ;-) If you don't believe me, here is the math: The probability of contracting HIV depends on two factors.
Avatar n tn t say enough about the sexual exposure for me to judge it, but if you are in the US or other industrialized country and your partner was not at special risk for HIV (commercial sex worker, immigrant from an AIDS-endemic country, etc), it is unlikely she had HIV. And even if she had it, the chance of HIV transmission for any single episode of unprotected vaginal sex averages 1 in 2,000. Bottom line: You can be very sure you don't have HIV.
Avatar n tn Dr. I am worried about possible HIV infection and confused by propability rates. I have had maybe 75-100 protected vaginal sex episodes with sex workers over the last 7.5 years. Most of these in Latin America and the Caribbean but one in Southern Africa and one in Sri Lanka. I have never tested because I always used protection though sometimes drunk. So it is possible that I have been infected for up to 7 years.
