aids

Avatar m tn Have you ever tested for HIV If you had AIDS you would know it you would be very ill
Avatar n tn HIV antibody tests can be done on blood or oral fluid. They are the same tests, meaning they test for the same thing (antibodies to HIV) but they just use different bodily fluids. As long as it is an antibody test, it is fine for testing for HIV. I was tested about 10 months after the exposure. As long as it has been a minimum of 3 months, your results will be very accurate.
Avatar m tn //www.thebody.com/Forums/AIDS/SafeSex/Current/Q174878.html In the first link they give the risk per act.. In this I did not understand what is the difference between Receptive oral intercourse and Insertive oral intercourse. Arent they the same? then why is the risk associated with each different? When i try to find the meaning of these at http://dictionary.reference.
Avatar m tn The presence of hiv antigen or antibodies to hiv is not a diagnosis of aids Confirmatory tests include western blot and hiv rnA test TEST DONE AFTER 1 MONTH(4WEEKS OF EXPOSURE) WHAT DOES THE RESULT MEAN? WHAT DOES 0.32 INDICATE CAN IT GO UP OR DOWN AS TIME GOES BY?
Avatar n tn I have been told by a trusted person on the HIV community that no risk of HIV from oral sex. You should visit the HIV community and ask this question over there. You can get other STD's from oral sex though.
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'll add that experts no longer really disinguish AIDS from non-AIDS HIV infections. The effectiveness of treatment has made the distinction pretty much irrelevant. It's all just HIV/AIDS.
Avatar m tn I need to know if AIDS/HIV can be transmitted if contaminated blood is sprayed in the eyes from an infected person to a non-infected person. I was involved in a scuffle where a guy who just got punched in the mouth was bleeding and he was yelling at me in my face. The blood from his injury sprayed from his lips and got all over my face! Can anybody tell me the chances of contracting HIV/AIDS this way?
Avatar n tn , meaning they can fire you for NO reason or ANY reason they want to (and if they suspect you have HIV or Hepatitis and want to get rid of you as their employee, they will fire you very carefully.) Firing of those with HIV, hepatitis, AIDS has happened to millions since the ADA was enacted. It doesn't matter if you disclose to your employer or not. If you want to be more protected on the job by the ADA, then you MUST disclose your status.
Avatar n tn no its not aids, aids isnt transmitted hiv is. Hiv causes aids which is a syndrome cuased by a virus. WHAT u may have may be normal ingrown hair follicules completely normal and as for the head of your penis are u uncircumsized meaning do u have a forskin? if you dont have a forskin then it could be herpes but id say its ingrown hair follicules. ITS not aid nor hiv. Oraldoesnt transmit hiv, it may transmit herpes but really low. U dont have to worry about this.
29837 tn?1414538248 At the end of the six-month treatment, 19 (86 percent) of those who used marijuana had successfully completed the therapy -- meaning they took at least 80 percent of their doses over at least 80 percent of the period. Only 29 (59 percent) of the nonsmokers achieved that goal.
Avatar n tn could you die of having HIV before ever developing AIDS? how do you live through life being infected? does being infected always mean you rtime is limited? meaning you'll die in 10years? can 2 HIV infected people have unprotected sex without worrys of anything else? whats the percentage of people who have HIV/AIDS in Mexico? or more specific in ensalda?
Avatar f tn you can't get it unless you have sex with/get a blood transfusion from/share dirty needles with an HIV/AIDS positive person...it's possible to get it from saliva but in order for that to happen,you would have to drink a gallon of their spit...
Avatar m tn As well your doctor's files are usually protected under privacy laws meaning that they will not divulge your HIV/AIDS status. You would have to be one unlucky guy to get HIV/AIDS from what you describe. It is possible. Any mixing of vaginal fluids on the tip of your penis can cause infection. And HIV usually remains dormant for a period of time. Meaning that throat infections would only happen once you moved from being HIV positive to having full blown AIDS which can take years.

Avatar f tn It's just a recurrence of your childhood chickenpox virus, which has lived in your nerves all these years. It's a little more common in people with advance HIV (AIDS), but not associated with recent HIV infection. I had shingles myself a couple of years ago, and my 13 year old son had it many years ago. We didn't give a thought to HIV and neither should you.
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.
Avatar m tn Hospital fta-abs test Syphilis TPPA negative.What experts can I rule out HIV infection and syphilis it? Please help me, greatly appreciated.
Avatar m tn so let me see if you know what you're even talking about. by "acute hiv symptoms"...are you meaning ars symptoms? the early symptoms that come at 2-4 weeks after infection? pneumonia is not an ars symptom.
Avatar n tn from my last visit at the Main Local Aids unit of my country(to get my 7 weeks confirmation results)...i could see that all of them who are HIV+ are or were drug addicts...meaning unprotected sex carries a lesser risk as regards to drug injections..but a risk is a risk..so we need to get ourself tested..and hopefully we come out good from this experience and learn our lessons...all the best..
Avatar n tn When associated with HIV, angular cheilitis is seen primarily in those with advanced immune deficiency, i.e. overt AIDS, several years after acquiring HIV. With protected vaginal sex, the risk you acquired HIV from your exposures in Columbia is almost zero. On the other hand, I suppose it is possible you have HIV acquired sometime previously; you don't say anything about your sexual lifestyle or drug use in past years.
Avatar n tn I am so afraid that this is something that has to do with hiv or AIDS. I can't stop thinking that somehow the tests were wrong. I don't know what to do. Do you guys think I should test again? Is the rapid test reliable? I was told that normally it is false positives you have to worry about with the rapid tests, not false negatives. I am really starting to go down a bad path that I thought was behind me. Please help.
Avatar n tn It utilizes recombinant HIV Antigens and HIV p24 monoclonal antibodies coated on microparticled to camture antibodies against HIV 1 / HIV 2 and HIV p24 antigen, respectively. Detection of p24 antigen prior to seroconversion facilitated early detection of HIV infection. Interpretation: A NON REACTIVE result implies that no Anti HIV 1 or Anti HIV 2 antibodies have been detected in the sample by this method.
Avatar m tn Talk to the doctor about the meaning of your swollen lymph nodes but DO NOT worry about HIV. Hope this helps. If you must ask further questions, they must be posted on the HIV site and will, unfortunately, it cost you another $15.00.
Avatar m tn The reason they say oral antibodies might not be picked up in advanced disease, they are meaning ADVANCED, like you have an AIDS diagnosis, with opportunistic infections, and not recovering or bouncing back. Your immune system is WIPED OUT, and trust me, if that were you, you wouldn't be on medhelp or any other website looking up this information. That is when you may not show antibodies because the disease is so far gone. But even that is a stretch. You don't have HIV, or advanced HIV.
Avatar m tn If someone has unprotected anal or vaginal sex or share works with other IV drug abusers then to see if they have been exposed to HIV is by testing. Period. Symptoms or lack of symptoms means nothing when it comes to diagnosing HIV. HIV can be contracted on the first time of exposure or it could be the hundredth time of exposure. The only way to be safe outside a monogamist relationship is by using a condom.
Avatar n tn 3) If I was infected by one of the other encounters would a common viral illness (throat not strep) cause these symptoms in an HIV infected person. In other words, are these consistent with HIV infection (rather than primary HIV infection)? I should mention that in the past year I have not had any flu like symptoms, fevers, lymph swelling etc. at all. 4) How worried do you think I should be? 5) I am getting tested on Tues. Just looking for some info in the meantime!!!
Avatar n tn Hi i went to an hiv and aids seminar last year and the speaker was great he assured me that the hiv virus comes up in your ststem after about 30 days and he also told me that id you get tested after thst and your results are negative then you are ok.
