Avatar m tn That's crazy. But speaking about movies on HIV/AIDS related themes, I found Philadelphia, quite exaggerated and silly to great lengths. No disrespect to Tom Hanks but could they have portrayed the whole thing any more stupidly?
Avatar m tn MY SON HAD UNPROTECTED SEX WITH A PROSTITUTE. HE IS 17 AND HE WAS A VIRGIN...HE IS CIRCUMSISED, DOES NOT DRINK OR USE DRUGS. I AM VERY SCARED AND DEPRESSED THAT HE MIGHT HAVE STI OR HIV. HE HAS BEEN TESTED FOR URINAL YSIS/FECES AFTER SIX DAYS AMD CAME BACK ALL NORMAL, BUT IS NOT CONCLUSIVE BECAUSE IT HAS NOT BEEN LONG ENOUGH. PLEASE IF YOU CAN GIVE ME PIECE OF MIND.
Avatar m tn You have better chance of that hindering your quality of life than having gotten HIV from this encounter in 5th grade. Please post any other questions about HIV in the HIV Community.
Avatar n tn I would check an HIV/AIDS support forum. This here's for HCV folk. Please excuse me if you do have HCV, just wasn't sure by the sounds of your post. But as was mentioned above, candida (yeast) is the cause of oral thrush most...all?... of the time, so maybe you should check that out. Good luck finding your answers!
Avatar f tn I was tested with my 2 younger kids when iwas pregnant for hiv, thank God that was clear I just assumed they tested for all other virus to , I was so shocked when i found out i had hcv after a routine blood exam, because i was for certain id been tested for everything and was free and clear... I asked the hep nurse why dont they test the pregnant women for hcv and she said because transmission chances are small...
Avatar m tn I have had all test done... 3 Hiv, Pcr Hiv. **** scrub cutures etc. My symptoms are... Testicular pain, leg pain, fatigue, ANA positive speckeled, ESR 3mm. Takin every normal antibiotic for prostatitis for way longer than it should have taken to get rid of it. What the hell do I do now. Testicular pain is as bad as cancer. Mess's your brain. You worry about HIV. But all is negative. I wish to live for my daughters.

936016 tn?1332769204 Many of the questions we answer on this Forum and also the Freedomhealth Sexual Health Forum relate to anxiety about HIV and also possible early HIV symptoms. One of the main problems in relying on HIV symtoms themselves is that they are notoriously vague and almost all the symptoms may in fact be symptoms of a different disease. The best method always of diagnosing HIV is to have a modern HIV test.
Avatar n tn According to the analysis of YPLL, hepatitis C-related disease was the 16th leading cause of premature death in the United States in 2004, and the fourth leading infectious cause of premature mortality behind HIV/AIDS, influenza and pneumonia, and septicemia.[19] Understanding trends in hepatitis C-related mortality is complicated by changes in hepatitis C diagnostic practices, particularly during the first half of the study period.
Avatar n tn My sister recently moved in, she is has AIDS. my husband is concerned that we and our kids can contract it. He is currently doing his CEU hours and HIV explains that we can contract it by sneezing, coughing, muscus. Any body fluids will can live 24 hours on a surface and without knowing if we touch it we can get it. Is this true and How can we prevent it?
Avatar n tn not someone truly concerned about his health. Why post in here? Why isn't he more concerned about HIV/AIDS......or is he posting there, too? hmmmm.
Avatar m tn A week later I notice the most disturbing of my symptoms. Symptom#2 -exfoliative chelitis. This is an HIV forum and I'm sure people are still scratching thier heads wondering what this is. This is an autoimmune disorder where your lips produce skin at a faster rate than your own body can keep up with causing dead skin to pile up and peel off. This can leave your lips lookin very dry and unnatural. At this point I am freaking out. I can't get through work without alchohol and chapstick.
Avatar n tn then the second test came back negative. I have been reading up that it could mean you have HIV/AIDs. But my test came up negative for HIV. But on the internet it says its takes up to 3 months for HIV to be detected. I have had a sore throat, diarhea, & there is a black spot on my gums. all these are symptoms of early HIV. I am so scared, i have 2 kids im 19 & married, with a whole life ahead of me.
Avatar n tn I have been extremely worried if I contracted HIV from this woman, due to mainly not knowing her story, and this incident being a one night stand. I was tested at 3 months for HIV 1 & 2 and thank God negative, and I was tested also at just over 6 months for both HIV 1 & 2, and thank God again, negative. The CDC officially states that 97 percent test positive by 3 months, and in the rare occasions it can take up to 6 months.
1024580 tn?1331577721 There are no reported cases worldwide of people becoming HIV positive after fingering a woman with HIV. People are generally very concerrned about the presence of tiny cuts on their fingers or around their finger-nails which they fear may pose an extra risk by being so called open wounds. An open wound is a cut which is freshly made and freshly actively bleeding. This does not mean an old healed paper cut for example. It does have to be 1) fresh and 2) open and bleeding.
Avatar n tn HIV hit the gay community hard when it was first discovered. Today more straight people are becoming infected with HIV than gay men. Why? Too many straight people feel that only gay men need to worry aobut it and that straight people will not get it. Wake up! Every major city has a HIV organization that can provide you with educational material. Read it and have your kids read it.
Avatar m tn I am currently 17 years ago and 3 years ago when i was 14, i had unprotected sex with the maid for about 3minutes at the time who was married and had kids.....
483375 tn?1221061212 This is a forum for individuals who are HIV positive or have AIDS to connect and support each other.
Avatar n tn Even with that said I'm worried that this is a symptom on HIV. I have been going through a divorce, stress with kids and job so I am hoping that this is due to my stress and diet, I also have asthma. Please help me.
Avatar n tn The factors responsible for the wide variation observed in the rate of disease progression in HIV-infected children are a major focus of the NIAID pediatric AIDS research effort. WITS is a multisite perinatal HIV study.
Avatar m tn Thank you for you response. It helped me to take the oral HIV test(OraQuick) and it came out Negative.I understand that Shingles has nothing to do with HIV. But Just wanted to check if I can relay on OraQuick result for HIV or do I need to go through the Blood test for HIV?
1024580 tn?1331577721 Romero and others, in their article describing an excellent and diligent long term study failed to identify any risk at all in transfer of HIV from an HIV positive to an HIV negative partner through oral sex. In total 19000 episodes of oral sex were documented amongst 135 heterosexual couples over ten years and in 34% of these episodes the HIV positive male ejaculated into the HIV negative females' mouth. (Romero J et al.

Avatar f tn I know that in most cases HIV turns to AIDS or is pretty evident after 10 years, but what if I am one of those people with whom it takes longer and so is my husband? I know we are dumb for never getting tested before we got married, but we didn't. I just want him & my child to be ok. Can you please tell me your thoughts? Thank you.
Avatar m tn That's what most of the people that come here think and that is what some of the younger generation thinks. "You take some pills and that's it." That's as far from the truth as it can get. That's not even close.
Avatar n tn Thanks, my problem is that I would have a really tough time seeing a professional without my wife knowing. Obviously I haven't told here what's going on, nor will I. We have the same GP, so I can't talk to him about it either. I just have to rely on ALL those negative test results. What kills me is when you are in the clinic, you read those pamphlets that tell you about HIV/AIDS, and the last statement is "few people will never develop antibodies to HIV".
Avatar m tn look she has 4 kids she is married do you think she has hiv no she dont if you are that worried wait 3 months and get a hiv test dont read on symptoms they seem to happen once you read them and by the way this is not the drs forum but he will say the same thing move on you are fine
Avatar n tn But I do feel worried that I may be suffering from HIV or what. Ok I did test but not for HIV coz I am afraid. Doctor help me.
Avatar n tn The counselor told me they were only about 95% reliable and I might have to wait a year. Back then, if you got HIV you got AIDs quickly and most people with AIDs died. It was scary and in the Bronx it almost felt apocalyptic. Many black and Latino men like myself were bisexual but knew nothing about how to prevent infection, and had no way of getting info on it.
Avatar n tn In the past she had had risky behaviors, having unprotected sex while on drugs, from 15 to 20 years old approx. 10 years have passed and her health is good, her kids too. When i asked her about aids, she was upset, accusing me to ask a "question for ******". Of course it wasn't. She told me that she ran through piles of blood tests when she was pregnant, and now it's obvious to her that she is HIV negative. She has done a "cold blood" test too when she was 20.
