Avatar f tn I said, 68 days after the last trial of the combi pt ecl trial, and the negative one, the AIDS center tells me because I have had a lot of relationships, there is a risk of developing a hepatitis virus and an AIDS virus, and an antibody after Six months have been generated and you have to wait up to six months, now I have a question. Are they right, and I have to wait until 6 months and try again, or my trial is definitive after 68 days and I have no AIDS?
Avatar m tn YES you should and you should ignore people like Gary L Glum because he's full of you know what.HIV/AIDS is real and so is HIV testing.These HIV/AIDS denialists don't have a clue and they have blood on their hands.
Avatar m tn I called AIDS-HIV hot line, I asked the nurses about the question "Did you see anybody HIV test is negative 6 weeks, then changed to Positive at 3 Month testing", She told me, she never saw that case. And I asked Hiv expert ( USA famous HIV center chief scientiest) by internet chatting, if she had case 6weeks negative ,then changed to Positive, she said, she didn't see that, 6weeks is conclusive. this is mI got information from recently study.

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 m tn to neveragin624 that is correct, I have not done anything over the past 12 weeks that would put me at risk, I was just scared of contracting HIV from the actual health center from like the pencils i was writing health information with, getting the blood drawn from the needle, my finger pricked, the band-aids, cotton balls, etc. There were probably a lot of HIV positive people right before me in those rooms, I shook the doctors hand right before I left too.
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 What does they mean 80 per HIV specialist or 90 percent ?? And the AIDS VANCOVER which is HIV society they do service for free from Canada stated that 4 th generation test is not so conclusive at weeks and that starts that it is a good indicator of your status . Can you please tell me how far they are true?
Avatar n tn The OraQuick test is the only rapid test licensed to screen both oral fluids and blood for HIV, according to Bloomberg. Bob Wood, director of the HIV/AIDS control program at the Seattle-based department, said that in 5,460 tests, OraQuick failed to detect at least 8% of 133 people found to be HIV-positive with a non-rapid diagnostic. This compared with the 0.7% rate given on the test's label.
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 Then you don't have HIV and any symptoms you're suffering from now have nothing to do with HIV. Such would better be consulted with a doctor.
Avatar n tn I do not have any information on the end stages of HIV, I do think though that you can enter the HIV forum and get more information.
Avatar m tn Because HIV is the causative agent of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), ICL can be referred to as Non-HIV AIDS. As in AIDS patients, Non-HIV AIDS patients exhibit reduced numbers of CD4+ T-lymphocytes, and many Non-HIV AIDS patients have developed the opportunistic infections or otherwise rare cancers associated with AIDS. Non-HIV AIDS patients may comprise perhaps one percent of all AIDS patients.
Avatar f tn Twitching is one of the many possible symptoms of HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) or AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome), and may occur at any stage of infection with HIV or the development of AIDS. AIDS is defined by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention as the condition occurring when a person infected with HIV has a T cell count of 200 or less or one of several serious conditions, such as pneumonia, tuberculosis or certain types of cancer.

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 f tn Dear Doctor, I have a few questions for you involving two separate encounters, subsequent testing and information I have been given by an employee at a testing center. Firstly, in January of 2009 I had what I remember to be an unprotected sexual encounter with a heterosexual American male in the Army. Our condom broke. He claimed to be clear of all STDs. In January of 2010 I had 2 separate sexual encounters with a heterosexual American male in Medical School who I had dated briefly.
Avatar n tn IS this bad information from my local HIV center: "I was told that there is a 95% chance that at 20 days after exposure I would begin to show symtoms or at least know I dont feel good. The fatigue usually starts first and that leads to a fever which happens for a majority of people around 10-14 days. Is this correct?
