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 n tn what can you tell me about angular cheilitis as it relates to HIV. There seems to be a lot of conflicting information on the web about this. The doctors on this site seem to think the association is pretty tenuous at best. Is it generally associated with late-stage infection or early? There are sites that claim it's usually an indication of early infection, but others say it's rare until full-blown AIDS develops. I thought I remember Dr.
Avatar n tn t conflicting information from HIV experts. The way that adults actually get HIV is very straight forward. HIV is transmitted by unprotected vaginal or anal sex or sharing of IV drug needles. That's it. So, this was not a risk.
Avatar n tn My dr told me that there was a guy from Kenya who was hiv positive for 5 years but tested negative.How can I be sure that I dont have the virus.Im very worried....that I might progress to the aids stage and die without anyone knowing what of because of the gestation period.I had sex with a hooker 7 months ago but i have been sick ever since.
Avatar f tn As you've been told, you had no risk for HIV from oral sex, but you are at risk for STD's. Please post to our STD Forum for further information and advice.
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 You never had a risk and your condom didn,t fail or you would have known straight away.Stop surfing the net for information,its just going to make you more anxious.You have been given the correct information,except it and relax.
Avatar m tn I spotted this material on the web and just wanted to bring it to the attention of the forum. I think this is just old information that they did not take off their website but it is from a Dr. WHEN TO GET TESTED QUESTION How long does it take for HIV to show up in a blood test? ANSWER The HIV test is an antibody test that measures the body's reaction to the HIV virus.
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 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 n tn Why is HIV and AIDS information more sensitive than other types of heath conditions?
Avatar n tn The tester explained to me that 90 percent of people seroconvert by 3 months and so the test was meaningless. I questioned her information, and she showed me the same information written on a card from the Maryland AIDS Administration. The local news here had cited the same statistics from the Virginia agency. Both of these organizations are headed by MDs and (I’m almost sure) receive Federal funding from CDC. They must receive money from the State taxpayers.
Avatar m tn 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 s viral load been measured and do you know the result? Or his CD4 lymphocyte count? Even without this information, is your dad is ill with HIV/AIDS? Was he diagnosed because of symptoms, or as a routine screening test? These things can give clues about how infectious his blood might be. Is he part of the household, or was he just visiting your home at the time? Even without that information, I can assure you there is little or no risk of HIV transmission from the events you have described.
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 that prostitutes are vectors of HIV. Although a small percentage of prostitutes may be HIV positive, William Darrow, CDC AIDS epidemiology official, cites no proven cases of HIV transmission from prostitutes to clients.(8)" Sounds a little optimistic to me.
Avatar m tn 89 percent were male, 74 percent were white, and 78 percent had risk factors for HIV infection (63 percent had engaged in homosexual sex, 11 percent were injection-drug users, and 4 percent had received transfusions). According to available information, none had had HIV cultures or experimental tests for HIV, such as PCR for retroviral DNA sequences. Can anybody answer why the 299 cases initially seronegative with AIDS?. Is this becuase low sensitive assays used those time?.
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.
