Avatar m tn In 1992, Lei served as the Founding Board Co-chair of the Asian and Pacific Islander Coalition on HIV/AIDS, the first AIDS organization to serve the API community in New York City. While working for the AIDS Treatment Data Network from 2001 to 2005, Lei collaborated with the Kaiser Family Foundation and the National Alliance of State and Territorial AIDS Directors on the National AIDS Drug Assistance Program Monitoring Project.
Avatar m tn Sadly, what you wrote above is typical of the knowledge of probably most health care professionals. Even my own nursing education didn't teach me the REAL risks. It wasn't until I worked specifically with AIDS/HIV patients, and got to know many respected ID docs, and worked in employee health, that I learned the REAL facts.
Avatar f tn I'm a M.A. in a family physicians office. They do not have a policy there to wear gloves when giving injections. No one there does, and I never really thought about it since the risk of coming into contact with bodily fluids is low with an injection. Once in a while a patient will bleed when the needle is removed, more so with gleut injections. I've stopped the bleeding with cotton before, Maybe 2-3 times in the past year I've gotten a very small amount of blood on my fingers.
Avatar m tn I know they deal with HIV fear and hopefully that will set your mind to rest. Or call an AIDS hot-line. Sadly, they abound. Get tested as many times as it'll take to convince you....... You have a lot of options but, personally, I think sitting around watching videos of people who are really living with the virus is just weird. THAT makes you feel better and relaxes you? On second thought, I think you should opt for the therapy ASAP. One hopes you have learned your lesson.
Avatar f tn 1) Unnatural behavior which results in disease, not the least of which is its high association with the development and spread of HIV/AIDS; 2) Confusing behavior which is harmful to children who have a deep need to understand the proper role of men and women in society and the important differences between men and women, and fathers and mothers; and 3) Undermines the longstanding definition of marriage as between one man and one woman, a definition which has been key to all aspects of social or

Avatar n tn I think your HIV risk is absolutely none. I have never seen an HIV expert say there is even a remote chance you can get HIV that way. If that was the case, you're right: we must all have HIV. If I were you, I'd get tested purely for peace of mind, and while you wait for your results you can rest secure in the knowledge that you're 99.999% safe. Cheers.
Avatar m tn I then later worried about it. NO ONE could tell me what to do. We had NOTHING in our policy about exposure. I later called the hospital to atleast find out if the patient had any communicable diseases. They said since we didnt have the patients name they couldnt tell me anything and that they would not prescribe anti hiv drugs. I thought with the ryan white care act I would be able to find out this information.
Avatar m tn Hello, I had a one night stand seven years ago and part way through it the condom came off without me knowing. Approximately three months after this mistake I had an STD test and it came back negative for everything including HIV/AIDS. Three years ago I had a blood test for a life insurance policy and the HIV test came back negative. It was an HIV serum test. Recently I've been having trouble with oral thrush and the doctor at Urgent Care stated that I might have HIV.
Avatar f tn but i have heard that body fluid can enter the body through skin is it possible that can u have aids?
Avatar n tn The advantage of the PCR test is that it is a direct test for the presence of the DNA HIV virus. If you are infected, the DNA of the AIDS virus is present in your blood. This test can pick up HIV infection before the Elisa test turns positive. The PCR test has a 95% confidence level for detecting HIV infection after 28 days.

724568 tn?1235437509 In the entire history of the HIV/AIDS epidemic worldwide, and in the 20+ years since HIV testing has been routine, I'll bet not one person ever caught HIV from being tested. It is indeed reommended that health care providers wear protective gloves when they draw blood or otherwise come into contact with patients' blood or secretions. But the main reason is not to protect the patient from something carried by the provider.
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 Despite the billions of kissing events in the AIDS era, not one case of HIV has been known to be transmitted that way, even though millions of those kisses undoubtedly were with cuts in the mouth or on the lips.
