Hiv aids untreated

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids untreated


Avatar f tn Oral sex is not a risk for HIV but it IS a risk for other sexually transmitted diseases. It is recommended that anyone who engages in oral sex should have an STD panel done every three months for prevention. And FYI, a person does not contract AIDS, they contract HIV, which left untreated, becomes AIDS. I suggest you test for STD's.
Avatar f tn Can you Get HHV8 and not get HIV/AIDS?. Is it possible to skip HIV and get AIDS directly? Would HHV-8 be what caused all my symptoms (fever/neck ach/night sweats/nightmares/nausea/tiredness? If I was coinfected with HHV-8, HIV would it take longer than 8 weeks to show on elisa test? Please help need more answers. The Dermatolgist had a wait and see attitude with my questions.
Avatar m tn You had both PROTECTED vaginal and oral sex. NO RISK FOR HIV OR STD's NO NEED TO TEST You can NOT contract HIV from an ingrown hair. And one does not contract "AIDS." You can acquire "HIV," which, if left untreated, will eventually become full blown AIDS. Symptoms are NEVER used to diagnose HIV and since you never had a risk, your symptoms are either being triggered by your anxiety or they are indicative of a completely unrelated underlying issue.
Avatar f tn 1. Untreated HIV usually kills you in 5-10 years, but this can differ from person to person depending on the viral strain and host genetics. 2. If he took his medication he most likely would be alive today. 3. Many people don't believe the HIV/AIDS theory, they are called HIV denialists. Sounds like your father was one of those people.
Avatar m tn AIDS is a particular syndrome associated with HIV which may develop after usually a very prolonged time - often many years. HIV is not the same as AIDS. HIV if untreated may cause AIDS eventually but the two are not the same. You did not have a risk. I don't obviously know whether she placed a used condom on you but that seems unlikely.
Avatar n tn If you don't use protection in this day and age then you are asking for an STD or 2.There is an old saying--''if it's not on,it's not on''.
Avatar m tn HIV can not last 20 years without a sign. If left untreated, HIV can make you sick within a few years. Early treatment can prevent HIV from ever becoming full blown AIDS. And again, you NEVER had a risk.
Avatar f tn In addition, people with gonorrhea can more easily contract HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. HIV-infected people with gonorrhea can transmit HIV more easily to someone else than if they did not have gonorrhea.
Avatar m tn stop trying to self diagnose yourself and see a dr. wrong forum.
Avatar m tn I then went and spoke to HIV specialists who are on WHO board for HIV who have written books on HIV with expierience of decades in HIV.i spoke to pathologists at accredited labs and everywhere they said that 72 hours post infection PCR DNA and RNA will be positive 100% one doctor(not a pathologist) said 7 days it is 200%(his words).

Avatar f tn She is running around with a guy who had been in the program for court ordered rehab and was released to a home that is for individuals diagnosed with HIV/AIDS-when I met him I asked her if she liked him as in a relationship, she told me yes-I confronted her to the fact he had come from this facility and she was being wreckless if she was sexually active even with condoms.

Avatar m tn i used my hands to help a man that was masterbating, i moved his organ back and forth several times then he ejaculated, some of his semen came on contact with my hand and fingers, then he did so with me, he used his hand on my organ then i ejaculated, do i have risk to have aids if he was hiv posetive??
Avatar m tn No, that is correct. People usually get AIDS and die (if untreated) within 12 years of infection. Not everyone, but the vast majority. I think Nw should get tested, but a positive result is unlikely. He should expect a negative.
Avatar m tn how many long it takes - ( years ) gets to manifest the AIDS( not the HIV)?
