Avatar n tn These case counts represent minimal estimates because completeness of reporting has not been assessed. Although AIDS is reported uniformly nationwide, the reporting of HIV infection, including HIV-2 infection, differs from state to state according to state policy. Who should be tested for HIV-2? Because epidemiologic data indicate that the prevalence of HIV-2 in the United States is very low, CDC does not recommend routine HIV-2 testing at U.S.

802256 tn?1238091556 I am always nervous about STDs, and when we became sexually active together we used condoms. We talked about HIV/AIDS, and he told me that he had always used condoms in his home country, that the Kenyan government requires yearly tests for all citizens, and that he had to be tested before he was granted a visa to come to the U.S. After being together for a few months, we both went and got tested and were negative for everything, and we began having unprotected sex.

Avatar n tn Check out to get some real answers and here is a link on explaining statistics on how hiv is being trasmitted, it can happen only after 1 exposure of unprotected.
Avatar m tn he said that he was clean but the fact that he was from kenya where the aids rate seems high has me scared. he wanted to see me again i said no so what are the chances that i may have been exposed to something.
Avatar m tn I know for a fact that I will get tested at 6 weeks, but just wanted to understand what my odds were of contracting HIV. Can someone help me with this? This happened at Mombasa, Kenya - in sub-saharan africa. Kenya has a 7% and declining AIDS population. Must add that the girls, all of them, INSISTED on condoms. And in the above accidental case, the girl panicked more than me and stood under a hot shower and thoroughly tried to clean herself. Pls help put my fears to rest.
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 I heard the number of people with HIV/AIDS in the US is around 800,000 to 1,800,000, does anyone have a more precise estimate? I thought this stat could chill those who are worrying cause, if there are 300,000,000 people in america, then only .3 to .6 percent of people have HIV/AIDS with many of them being gays and african american, not to scare those who are either of those two, but whatever u are, its still rare really rare compared to other parts of the world.
Avatar n tn But, why the anxiety and the miseducation, to which the Doc sometimes refers, if statistics prove otherwise? I know that public health sites and organizations tend to approach HIV/AIDS from a conservative standpoint, and rightly so, in order, I suppose to reduce the pandemic's impact. But, how does one really gauge risk? Is it really true that a one-time encounter with a generally low-risk person puts you pretty much in the clear? I mean, what's accurate and what's not?
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 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 f tn Swollen lymph node can be due to many reasons other than HIV
Avatar f tn 4 million people around the world were living with HIV/AIDS and more then 60 million people have been infected with HIV since the pandemic began. In 2000, HIV- and AIDS-associated illnesses caused deaths of an estimated 3 million people, including 500,000 children under the age of 15.
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 A few weeks ago I read that a Kenyan college student girl who had been transmitted with HIV by a guy slept with 325 men, in order to pass HIV to them for revenge!! And the news said 300 men that had sex with her were confirmed to catch HIV from her!!! That is unbelievable! Since I used to believe HIV from female to male is not that easy to transmit(about 1/1000), how can she infect 300 men out of 325 in two years? This news reminds me of my own story...
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...
Avatar n tn , there are certain documented cases of this kind, if you visit Rochester University web page on HIV/AIDS you will find the statistics also.
Avatar n tn I am a male and i had oral sex given to me by a prostitute in kenya where the infection rate is so high. it was done without a condom. i could not see any presence of blood when i was given the blow job. we also had intercourse this time protected with a latex condom.. 2 weeks after the incident, i started experiencing hypersilvation. is this a sign of HIV infection? i have no other signs like flu headache... it 4 weeks since the incident. what are the chances that i am infected.
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 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 m tn This blog will discuss effective ways of using new media tools in the fight against HIV/AIDS. Each week the blog will cover a different new media topic, some posts will focus on specific tools (podcasts, mobile applications, blogs, wikis), while others will be broader in scope, such as 508 compliance and accessibility.
