Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids knowledge questionnaire


Avatar m tn Your infection begins to develop into AIDS. AIDS is a condition that is caused by the HIV virus. It refers to the substantial destruction of the immune system and subsequent infections that are able to attack the body as a result of this. Semantics aside, it is possible someone does not know they are infected until they have developed into AIDS. 3) No it would not. You need to undergo an HIV test to catch the infection.
Avatar m tn t an issue, since it only occurs in advance HIV/AIDS, rarely if ever as a sign of a new HIV infetction. The current HIV tests are among the most accurate diagnostic tests ever developed, for any medical condition and your results prove you didn't catch HIV. (See http://www.medhelp.
Avatar m tn m questioning had AIDS would I have contracted AIDS and not HIV and do I need to test for AIDS? Please help me out! Thank you!
Avatar n tn Acer, a dentist who was shared by the six patients and who died of complications of the acquired immunodeficiency syndrome (AIDS). So how could a HIV postive dentist spread HIV to six people if HIV can't survive outside the body?? And the CDC said he didn't have sex or use drugs with any of these people. Do you guys have any insights?? Any help would be great thanks!!!
Avatar m tn Lack of education, lack of knowledge about HIV and for some people lack of care
Avatar m tn If she had just finished with a client and masturbated him and had any semen left on her hand could i be at risk for transmission if he may have had aids given my open cut. Again, i am rather anxious and i know that this site isnt judgemental. Thank you.
Avatar m tn The place in Arizona your friend recommended has no more "knowledge" than your local clinic. They don't have some secret cactus cure they're keeping from the rest of the world. Since you are planning ahead for your next test, (should that become necessary) and appear to be scouting for top of the line facilities, I'd like to recommend the Central Laboratory For HIV/AIDS in Cairo.

Avatar f tn No risk for HIV, however, you may want to get a standard STD panel. Go to your local planned parenthood type clinic or your doctor.
Avatar f tn t come in my mouth or at all to my knowledge. I am now wondering what are the chances are of catching HIV or aids? I am aware there are chances I have caught other stds which I am trying to locate a free STD home test kit for over 25's. The male may not have aids or HIV just can't help but worry Please help.
Avatar n tn I have a question, I am a director of an activity for 25, and an instructor of mine recently told me he is HIV. Should I inform the parents? Is there risk for my kids? Should I inform the board? I just don't know enough, and I know they will not be happy if the director doesn't tell them, but I also know alot of the parents are not open minded on certain situations. He also told one of my students. He is 19 or 20, she is 16.
Avatar m tn so you are sharing toilet paper? eewwhhhhh ! ! ! this is not a risk for contracting hiv.
Avatar n tn This really falls under OCD and limited knowledge of HIV / AIDS, you will find it that incidental exposure rarely result in transmission-and by rare i mean almost never. Especially in the scenario mentioned, so feel at ease and try to learn the real routes & means of transmission in regards to HIV / AIDS. The virus does not lurk on door knobs and gates, ect, we all have it, this is why you never hear about people contracting like this.
Avatar n tn do you have any risk you wanna share?
Avatar m tn AIDS is caused by the HIV virus and everyone who has AIDs has the HIV virus but not everyone who has the HIV virus has AIDS. This is because AIDS is a far advanced stage of HIV infection at which time the infection has progressed to the point at which the infected person's immune system cannot any longer prevent certain infections or other complications of immune deficiency from occurring. The virus is what is passed from person to person and is what causes AIDS.
Avatar f tn Thanks. Wow If Penalising concerned people who may have potentially life changing and threatening circumstances is how med help try to support people in these situations I wouldn't want to be a member or supporter of a site like that! sounds really harsh. I suggest med help change there opinion of this.
Avatar m tn also known as the medical field. We have many patients that are HIV+ and many with full blown AIDS. I have come into contact with virtually every type of body fluid there is and I've been "needle stuck" more times than I can count. Over a period of 15 YEARS, that works out to hundreds of "exposures." I have NOT contracted ANY disease, nor have any of my co-workers. I think your best course of action would be to seek therapy for your out of control health anxiety.
Avatar m tn CD4s crashed in 2005 and was hospitalized for disseminating histoplasmosis and was given an AIDS diagnoses at that time. I teach about HIV/AIDS in three colleges and local high schools and groups.
Avatar f tn I'm still a work in progress :o), so I can't help with your questionairre; however there is a recent article in Clinical Care Options that discusses the term "cure" as is used in HCV management. Here's the addy: You'll probably be asked to register, but it's quick and free.
Avatar m tn This subject has a great deal of controversy surrounding it, but I have included a link to the Bill and Melinda Gates foundations which works with HIV/AIDS research around the world. I hope you find your answers or at least some hope............ http://www.hivplusmag.
Avatar n tn For your information, oral sex unprotected can result in hiv. Dr. Robert Frascino a hiv/aids specialist who by the way has aids. You can find him on the body website. He stated and I quote ,has treated a patient who had one time unprotected oral sex with person hiv postive and contracted hiv. One thing you can be sure of Mr. know it all. I will never ever post on this site ever again. The only reason I asked this site was because I hadn't heard back from Dr.

Additionally, HIV is unable to reproduce outside its living host (unlike many bacteria or fungi, which may do so under suitable conditions), except under laboratory conditions, therefore, it does not spread or maintain infectiousness outside its host.
Avatar f tn Does this post a risk of HIV? I know he had a HIV test in February and it was negative but I am curious to know if an act like this can be a risk of HIV? Also, he performed cunnilingus on me.
