Avatar f tn Statistics from HIV Aids council Australia,''of the 25,000+ people living in Australia with HIV 82% are men who have sex with men,10% hetro sexual community,8% iv drug users''.How is my statement incorrect??
Avatar m tn I'm not an idiot. I know all the statistics and I'm not scared of people with HIV or AIDS. I actually work in a population where it's very possible for anyone of my clients to be diagnosed with it. Maybe you and nvmybeauty should think before you jump to conclusions like you did. Because I didn't know what peripheral neuropathy was I thought maybe it was caused by the AIDS. I apologize for "assuming" so.
Avatar n tn Hello I recieved unprotected oral sex with a female CSW a month ago- status unknown, I am very anxious about this encounter I ejaculated in her mouth.. If she was HIV positive what is my potential risk. Vaginal sex was protected with condom. Do I need testing......what does 1/20000 mean? is it one in 20,000 people or 1/20,000 episodes? What is neglible risk? the city I live in - the Aids COmmitte site says neglible risk? Please help...
Avatar n tn Latex condoms, when used consistently and correctly, are highly effective inpreventing transmission of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. In addition, correct and consistent use of latex condoms can reduce the risk of other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including discharge and genital ulcer diseases. While the effect of condoms in preventing human papilloma virus (HPV) infection is unknown, condom use has been associated with a lower rate of cervical cancer, an HPV-associated disease.
Avatar m tn Oral sex is "theoretically" a sincerely low risk; however, the risk is so close to zero that it cannot be calculated. This doesn't mean to go enjoy oral sex with someone bleeding from the gums while massaging your genitals with a cheese grater, but you shouldn't be too concerned. If you would like to know the statistics of HIV/AIDS based on gender, you can easily go Google "HIV Statistics.
Avatar n tn How confident should I be that I do not have HIV,given that my exposure was 9 weeks ago and my test for HIV antibodies came back negative? Are there any statistics that show the relationship between acute HIV infection and high levels of CMV and Epstein-Barr?
Avatar n tn Welcome to the HIV forum. You describe a low risk exposure, except that you don't mention one potentially significant factor -- your and your partner's race/ethnicity. The rate of HIV is far higher in African Americans than in whites or persons of other race/ethnicities in the US. The low rate of AIDS in your geographic area should indeed be reassuring -- but the statistics you quote deserve some caution.
Avatar m tn Promise, last question!!! You mention: If ARS were to occur it would most typically show at 2-3 weeks following exposure and perhaps, rarely as far out as 6 weeks. Beyond that ARS would not be expected to occur. You also write: All who suffer ARS have their symptoms ressolve. My last and final question is: After ARS resolves, when do most who are infected realize that they have some unusual health problems taking place. I think I have read that somewhere around 10 yrs.
Avatar m tn There is no debate (among experts) about the HIV risks associated with oral sex. The risk is so low that almost nobody who cares for HIV infected patients has ever had a patient believed to have been infected that way. Among experts, it's a semantic issue about using terms like "no risk" and "very low risk". There is no difference between my or Dr. Hook's use of "low risk" and other experts' "no risk". DR.
Avatar m tn HIV is an infection. ARC and AIDS are the symptomatic breakdown of the immune system as a result of HIV (the Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome and the AIDS Related Complex.) Cytomegalovirus (HHV) and some of the other things that go along with AIDS can mimic MS when present in the brain. I guess I can say this as a 49 year old gay man, but "Why are you worried since we all know to play safe?" I am of that generation that watched huge portions of the gay population "die off.
Avatar n tn Thanks LIZZIE Not worried about HIV anymore I have come to realise that the main factor for most people with fears of HIV infection is guilt. As is mine. I am going to get councelling to fix my issues. I have a bad problem with alcohol and it would seem that everytime I drink I get very horny and I will do anything to fix my sexual cravings. Well my test at 4 days post exposure was negative even though I would say I have had a number of risks over the years.
Avatar m tn Health authorities everywhere classify oral sex as a "low risk" activity. It is in actuality an academic approach. Purely theoritical. In the history of HIV/AIDS, spread over three decades, there is no proven evidence that someone acquired the infection through oral sex alone. What has been gathered through experience, statistics and records, HIV is tranmitted though 1. Unprotected anal and vaginal sex 2.
Avatar m tn Does anyone know if the info is out there anywhere and if so where to find it? I want to find out what percentage of all hiv/aids cases are from males who have sex with women.
Avatar n tn pdf Every state collects data for HIV/AIDS, so just google your state and HIV statistics and you can find yours. Other countries collect data as well.
Avatar m tn and that lymph nodes swelling up could have been my body responding to its recent infection by the HIV virus. What is my likelihood of contradicting HIV in the incident I mentioned? What is the likelihood, given that incident and my medical history, that I have HIV?
Avatar m tn After the needle stick I did notice a small amount of blood on my finger, in which i applied alchohol and washed with soap and water, From some of the websites I have visited I noticed that if stuck with a needle from a known HIV patient that the chances of infection is at 0.03%, There is no known diagnosis of whether this person is HIV positive or not, my gut feeling says she is not but I know you can never be sure.
Avatar m tn For adults, is HIV infection only through have unprotected (no condom) penetrative anal or vaginal sex, or Share IV drug equipment with other IV drug users?Can't any other behavior be infected with HIV? In addition, I did four generations of p24 antigen test after 28 days.

Avatar f tn Even more so when I found statistics for Washington ST, stating that there have been more than 15,000 HIV/AIDS cases recorded in Washington and about 3,000 people on average that have HIV and don’t know it. Some other symptoms like diarrhea have been present but no fever. I do not have a history of rashes and to my knowledge I am not allergic to anything. I'm nervous about getting tested, should this be a cause for concern?
Avatar m tn ) 2) Statistically speaking, does anyone know how many caucasion women are currently infected with HIV/AIDS in the US? I have searched, but cannot find any statistics. Thank you for your feedback / insight!
Avatar m tn Hello and hope you are doing well. Understand your predicament. As there was no mixing of body fluids it's unlikely that you may have developed HIV infection. Persisting throat infection could be due to other causes like post nasal drip or tonsillitis. But if you are in doubt, have yourself evaluated for HIV, it will help clear your worries. Hope this helped and do keep us posted.
557003 tn?1222577226 And these 2 questions are not really important but just out of curiosity, what are those odds for heterosexual women and homosexual male and female? What is the current population of HIV and AIDS infected people in the US and Asia and different countries around the world? There must be a site somewhere that can give you these figures...
