Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids statistics 2009


Avatar f tn No sweetie. She contracted hiv sometime in 2001. She didn't find out til 2009 it was full blown aids. She had mouth sores all the time and skin rashes. But it never crossed her head to go in for a hiv test. She wasn't sexual ly active after that one man who got her infected so she thought she wasn't at risk. When they caught it 5 months later she passed away. Meds didn't help so she was out in hospice care.
Avatar n tn Welcome to the HIV forum. You describe a low risk exposure, except that you don't mention one potentially significant factor -- your and your partner's race/ethnicity. The rate of HIV is far higher in African Americans than in whites or persons of other race/ethnicities in the US. The low rate of AIDS in your geographic area should indeed be reassuring -- but the statistics you quote deserve some caution.
Avatar m tn Oral sex is "theoretically" a sincerely low risk; however, the risk is so close to zero that it cannot be calculated. This doesn't mean to go enjoy oral sex with someone bleeding from the gums while massaging your genitals with a cheese grater, but you shouldn't be too concerned. If you would like to know the statistics of HIV/AIDS based on gender, you can easily go Google "HIV Statistics.
Avatar m tn Sex worker or just someone out in the street, using protection was your winning bet. Since this event is 2 years ago have you got tested yet? I am sure you didn't contract HIV. Get tested. If it's negative it's conclusive in my mind. Unless you had other sexual contact after that incident Oct 2007. PS: Don't self diagnosis yourself and read junk on the internet. It doesn't help.
Avatar f tn Get this straight Nobody ever gets HIV from the envrioment or from day to day activtives or contact with other people---only by sex and and needle sharing etc. in the 25 + history of the AIDS epidemic no household members of hiv infected people ever caught the virus (if they weret also sex or drug partners) despite years of sharing kitchens bathrooms eating utensls--in other wosrds avoiding HIV is a simple matter of sexual and drug use safety--nothing more than that.
Avatar m tn Does anyone know if the info is out there anywhere and if so where to find it? I want to find out what percentage of all hiv/aids cases are from males who have sex with women.
Avatar f tn Statistics from HIV Aids council Australia,''of the 25,000+ people living in Australia with HIV 82% are men who have sex with men,10% hetro sexual community,8% iv drug users''.How is my statement incorrect??
Avatar n tn hiv is not transitted through teeth :) hiv is transmitted through...
Avatar f tn Hi so I un protected sex on two different occasions w two different male partners. I'm a female straight female .They both never ejaculated and only pre- came if ny they pulled out. Do I have a high risk? What are my chances!? Thank you.
Avatar n tn if she is a HIV infect person, if i have a risk for HIV?
Avatar f tn Even more so when I found statistics for Washington ST, stating that there have been more than 15,000 HIV/AIDS cases recorded in Washington and about 3,000 people on average that have HIV and don’t know it. Some other symptoms like diarrhea have been present but no fever. I do not have a history of rashes and to my knowledge I am not allergic to anything. I'm nervous about getting tested, should this be a cause for concern?
Avatar m tn ) 2) Statistically speaking, does anyone know how many caucasion women are currently infected with HIV/AIDS in the US? I have searched, but cannot find any statistics. Thank you for your feedback / insight!
Avatar m tn I'm not an idiot. I know all the statistics and I'm not scared of people with HIV or AIDS. I actually work in a population where it's very possible for anyone of my clients to be diagnosed with it. Maybe you and nvmybeauty should think before you jump to conclusions like you did. Because I didn't know what peripheral neuropathy was I thought maybe it was caused by the AIDS. I apologize for "assuming" so.
557003 tn?1222577226 And these 2 questions are not really important but just out of curiosity, what are those odds for heterosexual women and homosexual male and female? What is the current population of HIV and AIDS infected people in the US and Asia and different countries around the world? There must be a site somewhere that can give you these figures...
Avatar n tn Be very worried of HIV, HIV is very real and anyone can contracted it. HIV is not a guessing game, for you to get a conclusive test result you will need to test 3 months post exposure from your last unprotected anal or vaginal sex.
Avatar m tn Can you advise if someone had unprottected vaginal sex with a lady who was confirmed HIV+ status, what are the odds the the man will aquire HIV?
Avatar m tn oh i've got a FIGURE for son contracted hiv from a single, one time exposure from an infected female!!!!!!!!
Avatar m tn This is a community for those who have HIV/AIDS, and for family and friends impacted by it.
Avatar n tn i keep looking on the internet for the statistics in hiv like is it 1/1000 ppl have hiv or something.
Avatar n tn I have read a lot about the statistics of HIV transmission... they say that unprotected vaginal intercourse is 1 in 2000 for male. and kissing, oral and protected is NO risk! (results based on number of sexually active males and females of different age groups) But still risk is risk... n by the way HIV is NOT the virus that many people get, even in country like India ( population of 1.18 Billion) HIV+ ppl are only 1% of total population as per 2009 data!!! in USA shld be still better...
Avatar m tn Yes it means you've developed AIDS. Once you are classified as having AIDS you will always have the classification no matter what your numbers do.
Avatar n tn t have a risk of contracting HIV and your symptoms have nothing to do with HIV. If you are concerned about your symptoms see your doctor.
Avatar n tn Latex condoms, when used consistently and correctly, are highly effective inpreventing transmission of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. In addition, correct and consistent use of latex condoms can reduce the risk of other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including discharge and genital ulcer diseases. While the effect of condoms in preventing human papilloma virus (HPV) infection is unknown, condom use has been associated with a lower rate of cervical cancer, an HPV-associated disease.
