1097960 tn?1257437375 Please do NOT post HIV denialist material or "Religion" Oriented material in this forum. It is NOT heplful in our mission to accurately educate our posters in a safe, nonjudgemental manner. HIV is a very REAL disease that does NOT discriminate. ANYONE regardless of their faith, sexual preference or race can become HIV infected.
Avatar f tn No you don't need to retest, if the brochure said that it is outdated.
Avatar n tn Current tests will detect HIV within 3 months, often sooner. I don't know about any specific cases in Kenya, but 5 years is not true at all today, if ever. Let's not panic needlessly.
Avatar f tn Hi I am a man and had oral sex from a hooker last night could I get hiv aids, please help
Avatar f tn Hello, Can u kindly explain me how many stages are involved in HIV positive? Can get AIDS as soon as being suffered for HIV?? Can HIV person be recovered like a normal person if taking a medicine regularly and obeying doc's suggestion properly??
Avatar m tn HIV can be transmitted due to sharing needles, this is because the blood interact. Unfortunately, there is no cure for HIV (note that HIV isn't the same as AIDS) but treatment for this virus is really advanced. There are medications that permit people live a completely normal life with HIV without developing AIDS. I hope everything is ok, post your results. Personally, I think you didn't involve in high risk. This virus is very fragile and die easily at normal temperature.
Avatar m tn Will the hair treatment lotion 'Rogaine' cause a false negative for a HIV test? The Rogain brochure ;says do not have a blood test whilst using this product'.
Avatar m tn I Had an oraquick advance on the 86 day mark. The brochure said it tests for HIV 1 and 2 at the clinic but the brochure also said up to six months and the man at the center says if I had been infected with HIV 2 it would show up as equivocal instead ofpositive.
Avatar m tn I cannot recomend a test since I`m not an expert netheir a doctor, but the same orasure brochure says and I quote " Testing a blood specimien in more accuarte" but thats what the brochure says, for me is the same I think both are good and if they are aproveed is becouse their are reliable, if you want a comparison chart of the fda aproveed test this are the links.
Avatar f tn Once blood or fluids are released out of the body. How long could HIV or AIDS live on towel, soap or surface. For example say someone who does not have HIV or AIDS uses the towel of someone who has the virus. The towel has blood or fluids on the towel. Is that person in any risk?
Avatar m tn Still, it has accurate information about how HIV is transmitted -- and most important for many users of this forum, how it is NOT transmitted, e.g. by kissing, body contact, exposure to most body fluids, and so on.
Avatar m tn That information is not really correct, first you can't catch AIDs, you develop it after you catch HIV, old needles aren’t a high risk for HIV as HIV has been exposed to the environment for some time and is rendered inactive, the situation where HIV is spread through needles is in the healthcare sector or through the sharing of needles through drug use, as the blood is relatively fresh.
Avatar m tn I solved the problem but after surfing on net, I realized that there could be relation between HIV and ANUG. Please tell me what is the relation between them? this has really scared me.
Avatar f tn Confusing information on internet can lead to falsely constructed ideas/information about HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases.I understand that being misinformed about HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases can lead to a lot of frustration! Let me clarify, that there is no risk in the situation you have described.
Avatar m tn I am also aware that HIV is not diagnosed on the basis of symptoms, but I was wondering whether face fat loss and redistribution of fat is caused by early HIV infection, anti-retro viral medications or long-term HIV infection that has progressed to AIDS?
Avatar m tn The survey of 230,179 cases of AIDS reported to the AIDS Reporting System initially revealed 299 HIV-seronegative patients. The evaluation of 172 of these patients (58 percent) is complete. Of these 172 patients, 131 have been reclassified as being HIV-positive, 4 have been reclassified as having some other type of defined immunodeficiency, and 8 HIV-exposed infants died before their serostatus could be determined.
Avatar f tn some point because the illness is passed on by similar routes but to say you have Hep b and therefore must have HIV/AIDS is totally totally wrong. Unless you know you have been having dangerous encounter after dangerous encounter with people who are likely infected with HIV/AIDS the answer to your questio is absolutely no way. And the 2 are 2 separate viruses. One does not lead to the other.
5553333 tn?1369941048 My parents call me a hypochondriac and ever since I found out what HIV/AIDS was, I have been obsessed. I am very afraid of the disease but I am fascinated by it. I look it up online constantly and I watch movies and TV shows on it too. Recently I started to think that I lived a past life as a victim of AIDS. I am into the 80s mostly because AIDS was a crisis, so sometimes when I have free time, I look up the 80s and AIDS to see what comes up. Is this OCD or just a strange obsession?
Avatar n tn Beyond the diagnosis of overt AIDS, the important information is whether she is on anti-HIV drugs; and how much HIV is in her blood, i.e. the result of a viral load test. If she is being treated and has an undetectable or very low viral load, there would be little or no risk even with unprotected intercourse. If you do it, you probably would not be infected. But common sense says there is no point in taking the chance.
Avatar m tn yes...
480448 tn?1426948538 anal sex partner having unprotected sex being about the highest risk factor. HOWEVER...despite this information....HIV is still on the rise among heterosexual partners. While it is less of a risk, it is still a risk! And, despite the "odds" out there, it IS possible to get HIV from only ONE episode of unprotected hetero sex. Who wants to take those kinds of chances? Therefore, remember to protect yourself at all costs.
