Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids prevention prevention groups people

aids

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 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).

The best one we've found so far is Inspire. You can post questions at either of the following locations: https://www.inspire. com/groups/hiv-and-aids/ or https://www.inspire.
Avatar n tn I am not gay, but this is alarming. Some people on this site feel that it is very hard to get HIV/AIDS, but I think this is an eye opener. I would like to see what the experts have to say? A new study from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, that tested over 8,000 people in 21 cities, found that one in FIVE gay men in the United States has HIV, and almost half of those who carry the virus are unaware that they are infected.
Avatar m tn thanks for your answer. To be frank with you this is not the first time I hear that. However many others tell me it's risky even AIDS prevention groups. Do not know what to think. Why is there no unanymous answer to that?
Avatar n tn m constantly amazed that with the wealth of information available for HIV prevention, so many people remain ignorant of the facts. (Ignorant does NOT mean stupid) Besides getting information from your local HIV/AIDS centers, or the HIV Hotlines available in virtually every community, one of the best educations you can get is simply spending time reading the posts on our HIV Prevention Forum.
Avatar m tn s no absolute guarantee even when you use a condom. But most experts believe that the risk of getting HIV/AIDS and other sexually transmitted diseases can be greatly reduced if a condom is used properly. In other words, sex with condoms isn't totally "safe sex," but it is "less risky" sex." REF :http://www.fda.gov/forconsumers/byaudience/forpatientadvocates/hivandaidsactivities/ucm126372.

Avatar m tn no offense, but that's crazy talk. hospitals do not infect people. i doubt there are other people stabbing you with needles without you knowing either.
Avatar n tn someone said antibody found in camel blood can fight hiv .some website are very usefull by dietplan people come negative in hiv in 3 months. why there is no cure for hiv negtive people to remove the name of in curable disease hiv.i have used many medicine but didnt work except diet plan including anti candida diet and garlic juice it change my saliva into light yellow.and tongue and stop nausea.
Avatar f tn So I have nothing to worry about ?
Avatar m tn t share hollow needles to inject with which is the only other way to acquire hiv. Analysis of large numbers of infected people over the 40 years of hiv history has proven that people don't get hiv in the way you are worried is a risk. HIV is a fragile virus in air or saliva and is effectively instantly dead in either air or saliva so the worst that could happen is dead virus rubbed you, and obviously anything which is dead cannot live again so you are good.
Avatar f tn Hello i an really paranoid about hiv and i no the ways it can be passwd bur qorry still, if you to cone across an infected needle and it poned you but didt perice the akin and asw blood but scraped te surface is rhis a risk?? Would you notice if a needle had scraped the skin id theis can infect you??? As it qould cause as mych pain would it??
Avatar m tn Is it true that the HIV will be detected by the HIV Elisa test after 6 for people with low immunity power? If I go for HIV PCR quatitative test, will it be confirmatory test to identity, that Im infected by HIV. My health is getting bad day by day and I want to take the HIV treatment immediately. Your comments will be highly appreciated.

Avatar m tn teak, It seems FDA approved truvada as prevention hiv infection before sexual activities. Is it true? How about condoms? sorry bother you but it is a doubt.
Avatar n tn Doctor, I am an 18 year old male, and have recently been diagnosed with obsessive compulsive disorder. This has little relevance to this thread as i already understand the disorder. It is relevant, however, to know that OCD causes thoughts of anxiety, and one of my biggest fears is acquiring HIV/AIDS. I've had multiple sexual partners, each of which i've trusted extremely well.
