Avatar n tn Current tests will detect HIV within 3 months, often sooner. I don't know about any specific cases in Kenya, but 5 years is not true at all today, if ever. Let's not panic needlessly.
Avatar m tn Hello Doctor, I was thinking of a new hiv/aids prevention method. It starts with if you cover the externel urethrtal orifice, with some sort of lets say duct tape. Will it help prevent the spreading of HIV. I was wondering since it is the only way vaginal fluid, or any type of bodily fluid could enter via oral, anal sex. Thus being covered, there isn't a way for the virus to enter nor leave. Your answer will be greatly appreciated and respected. Thank you for your time.
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...

Avatar m tn On Saturday, I had protective anal sex with a girl who never had anal before. She was 100% clean. I did not use any lubrication (I did not know what the right one to use was. Before we had sex, she already had taken a shower (And, she had a break out on her privates from using the wrong soap that would not play a part, right?) As I said, she was on her stomach. I did not take one (but I was clean still from a wash up).

Avatar m tn Condoms Latex condoms, when used consistently and correctly, are highly effective in preventing the sexual transmission of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. In addition, consistent and correct use of latex condoms reduces the risk of other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including diseases transmitted by genital secretions, and to a lesser degree, genital ulcer diseases.

Avatar f tn HOOK in the public HIV Prevention forum of MedHelp, TEAK and the other moderators maintain that oral sex in all forms is a zero risk activity. Would you agree with this assessment?

Avatar m tn I was immediately refered to an infectious disease specialist who screened me for hiv 1 and 2.My last involvement in sex was in july last year just over 6 months ago.However my dr has suggested more testing and monitoring for the next six months.I dont smoke or drink and have no history of cancer in my family.He has mentioned to me that he needs to rule out the presence of a variation of the virus that might produce antibodies that may not be picked up by current tests.
Avatar m tn Are you talking about HIV primary infection or ARS? or are you talking about advanced HIV that progress to AIDS? Those are two very different things and in this forum is about risk assessment. If you had a risk of contracting HIV, share it.
