480448 tn?1426952138 Too add to that, in 18 years of being a nurse, I've worked closely with several wonderful ID docs, also specializing in HIV/AIDS, most for quite some time...some with 30+ years in the medical field, specializing in infectious diseases. Their comments were the same. While they often said they wouldn't be comfortable saying something was impossible (that's a doctor thing), they all said that oral sex carried no risk.
Avatar m tn edu/insite?page=ask-01-04-13 this site tells about HIV greenlydia Aug 12, 2010 HIV is much more difficult to contract than most people think and if you are sexually active, getting educated about HIV/AIDS would save a great deal of worry and panic, it would protect you and your partner and it might even begin to lower the statistics on new infection levels. HIV must be contracted inside the human body.
Avatar m tn Yesterday I received a blowjob from a homosexual HIV + man. I came in his mouth. I would like to know if i was at risk during this practice, and if yes what should i do. Thank you all !
Avatar m tn I always thought that HIV was so easy to catch. You have unprotected sex with someone who was HIV positive or AIDs and voila you are HIV. From what I learned in school and tv commercial it only takes one time to be exposure and get HIV. I guess not everybody knows a lot about HIV and how hard it can be to get it. Having sites like this really tells me more about HIV/AIDs. Theunfortunateguy,I hope you are practicing safe sex.

Avatar m tn Even if we were to make the assumption that 1% had blood and 1 in 10,000 kisses with blood resulted in HIV(very conservative like oral statistics). We would have about 500-1000 cases of HIV from kisses per year. The reality is that it does not happen. Also if you are from the USA or another developed country or just one with a lower amount of HIV then you are at a lower risk even though the risk is pretty much zero. Please note that some of my numbers were either estimated or rounded.
Avatar f tn Just curious how you know so much about hiv/aids. Yes I will be getting tested next month so that is definite. You say hiv risk is low for vaginal sex. Why a lot of sites say other wise? Doesn't it make sense that if female to male transmission is something like 0.002% then having heterosexual sex be pretty safe if its.not a constant recurring event?
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 // (NHS UK Govt) The Health Protection Agency are the UK’s leading experts in the performance of HIV tests. They advise that there is no test available guaranteed to pick up 100% of HIV infections before 3 months. As per UK guidelines, an additional HIV test should be offered to all persons at 3 months (12 weeks) to definitively exclude HIV infection.
Avatar m tn Since the Beginning of this HIV epidemic,MSM transmission rates have been high. In NYC the statistics show about 2000 New Infections per year ... and the number from 21 Big cities also look staggering high. Is the whole blame of HIV transmission to be put only on Unprotected anal sex? 2. With The HOT study and Spanish study, there is a caveat pointed out that the partners of serodiscordanat couples may have been on ART and hence Not infectious! 3.
906884 tn?1242466636 The CDC estimates the number of hepatitis C-related deaths could increase to 38,000 annually by the year 2010, surpassing annual HIV/AIDS deaths.
264121 tn?1313033056 "Thanks to the success of HIV meds, HIV patients now have a NORMAL life expectancy.....that's 77.8 years. We can't say the same for Hep C patients. " This is not factually correct. HIV patients have a shorter than average lifespan. Much depends on age, time of infection, start of antiretroviral therapy, and means of acquisiton.This just came out in Lancet: "Life expectancy for HIV positive people is still not normal.
1122973 tn?1269735728 I know that I tested past the window period for HIV, but that window period is based on statistics and I usually never fit into statistics and have a feeling this is no different. Also my appetite has not returned nor have I gained weight. Are such scabs/ringworm common in a person infected with HIV? I truly have no idea what is going on with my body anymore and my anxiety will never go away if my symptoms don't.
475555 tn?1469307939 So you now have pharmaceutical funded patients collaborating with HIV/AIDS advocates treating viral hepatitis as a co-morbidity of HIV/AIDS rather than a unique disease. The net of fake organizations is huge. How do you spot the fakes? 1. Ask them where their funding comes from. You'll get no straight answers from the fakes. 2. See which organizations shamelessly violated their own guidelines. (i.e.
Avatar m tn Actually, unlike HIV/AIDs, hep c can live outside the body for up to 4 days. However it's not an STD and there has to be blood to blood transmission with an infected party to contract the virus.
233616 tn?1312790796 The people most in need of this information are late stage liver patients, and those taking anti-rejection, or HIV drugs, or who are medicating for any other serious medical condition. Especially if these groups plan on treating their Hepatitis, this information could prove invaluable. Actually anyone doing triple therapy really does need to pay attention here. Many of you have written privately asking me to filter my knowledge base down to it’s essence on my favorite topics.

Avatar m tn I had a wart on a thumb in the last three months of 2010. I do not know if the HPV could have spread to my penis. But the bumps there certainly do not resemble what I had on my thumb. I heard it is a different strain than what you could get in your intimate places though. By those five asterisks in your question, I believe you are asking about oral sex. If someone has HPV in the mouth and gives oral to another person, yes, it can spread.
Avatar m tn People who share needles or use nonsterile injection techniques can put themselves at risk for contracting dangerous infections, such as HIV/AIDS, hepatitis B and C, and bacterial endocarditis. Anabolic steroids abuse can also cause undesirable body changes, "Men may develop enlarged breasts and women's bodies may become masculinized. The drug was developed in the 1930's by Adolf and now has several uses. There are several reasons why someone would take anabolic steroids.
Avatar m tn org/conditions-associated-with-hhv-6 Now considering my Infectious Disease Dr, Dr Jemsek, who has been treating Immunesuppressed/Immunedysfunctional patients for 30 years and helped write the guidelines on treating HIV/AIDS/ Immunsuppressed patients for the CDC/IDSA. He also has been treating and diagnosing Lymes disease through clinical symptoms, genetic markers, pertinant lab results with and without a Erythmia Migrans rash (20-40% never get the rash as per the CDC).
3060903 tn?1398568723 Freedom of Expression (3) The uniform policy of a school or dress code should accommodate the wearing of, for example, an HIV and AIDS ribbon or badges of approved charity organizations, especially for specific events or days. Such items should not contribute to disruption by substantially interfering with discipline or with the rights of others. Thus, for example, a uniform policy may prohibit pupils from wearing gang or political party insignia.
29837 tn?1414538248 The FDA has to look at the scope and magnitude of this drug and our situation and factor that into their timetable. Speaking of HIV and AIDS. That group of infected people really shook things up. They got some media attention, they wrote letters, petitions, their congressmen and they took to the streets. ...........And the government acted. Then there is us with HCV; the SILENT KILLER. It's true. The disease takes many people because they wait until it's too late to act.
135456 tn?1301441224 That's a heckuvalot of study dollars that have gone into and continue to go into Alinia and for HBV, HIV/AIDS as well. It's an easily accessible drug, an inexpensive drug and for a Geno 1, non-responder or relapser to be able to add something like that to clearly nudge up SVR rates from what they are on SOC, that's a good thing. I'll be interested to watch how Alinia interacts with DAA's with regards to SVR rates as well and I'm encouraged that there are plans to study that.
475555 tn?1469307939 Both are so-called protease inhibitors, similar to drugs used against the AIDS virus HIV, that block an enzyme that viruses use to copy themselves. 1 Trillion Particles Hepatitis C copies itself so quickly that the typical patient makes about 1 trillion viral particles a day, Perelson said. With each new copy, there’s a chance of a genetic mutation and some of these mutations make the virus resistant to drugs.
Avatar m tn “To tackle the growing problems of drug resistance and shortages with respect to lamivudine and other antivirals in HIV/AIDS treatment, health care resources should be prescribed with caution, irrespective of whether implied or explicit informed consent has been sought.” Association of Preexisting Drug-Resistance Mutations and Treatment Failure in Hepatitis B Patients Source: ww.ncbi.nlm.nih.
264121 tn?1313033056 The CDC estimates the number of hepatitis C-related deaths could increase to 38,000 annually by the year 2010, surpassing annual HIV/AIDS deaths. Adapted from materials provided by Virginia Commonwealth University. Virginia Commonwealth University (2007, May 22). Cure For Hepatitis C Announced By Researcher. ScienceDaily.

683664 tn?1330969924 In fact, in 2007 there were 15,000 deaths related to hepatitis C, higher than previous estimates - and surpassing the nearly 13,000 deaths caused by the better-known AIDS virus. Perhaps more surprising, three-fourths of the hepatitis deaths occurred in the middle-aged, people 45 to 64, researchers reported in Annals of Internal Medicine.
Avatar n tn Due to the fact that millions people worldwide are now infected with this virus, this market population represents a $6 billion per year industry by 2010. These interferon-based therapies, to treat people who have HCV, do not actually kill the virus. Ribavirin and siRNA's (small molecule therapies) don't either. I think any attempt to market them to the public as a `Cure' should be treated as fraudulent misrepresentation and dealt with as such.
304153 tn?1194827741 thank you ribavirin!!!!!! not. can we spell jittery boys and girls?? anyway, remember how they downplayed HIV/AIDS in the early 80's?? Well.....half of certain countries now have it, too little awareness too late. Let's not repeat that fiasco!
