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!
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 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 n tn t find much in the way of death statistics from herpes like you would AIDS (25 million people have dies from AIDS since 1981) How were you tested? HSV1 or HSV2? Have you ever had any oral or genital symptoms? If you have HSV1, statistically it's more likely to be oral. About 70% of the adult population has oral herpes; it's incredibly common.
Avatar n tn pdf Every state collects data for HIV/AIDS, so just google your state and HIV statistics and you can find yours. Other countries collect data as well.
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 m tn Use a condom consistently and correctly and you won't have to worry about contracting HIV. Won't matter if the person you had sex with has HIV/AIDS or not.
Avatar n tn 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. It sounds like you are quoting reported cases of overt AIDS, and I'm sure there are many more persons with HIV that has not progressed to AIDS. In any case, there are other factors strongly in your favor.
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 f tn HIV statistics in major US cities/states are available via their public health departments, if you search for them. About 85% of new cases are in major metro areas. For example, NYC: SF: LA: Miami:
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.
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 //, but also in other places on the internet such as free online med journals. The other worrisome statistic is to do with CSW's. Even though Dr. HHH, who is usually a fountain of knowledge says that CSW's have a lower chance of HIV, this is not the case. Whilst it may be true in Western countries, where Subtype-B is prevalent, this is not true in South East Asia.
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 m tn I've read comments by EWH and HHH that HIV is extremely rare amongst sex workers in the US and in most other industrialized countries (probably less than 1%) However, I've read that HIV rates amongst prostitutes in certain cities are extremely high (ie Newark 60%, DC 30%). Are these studies or the people who present these stats most likely skewing them or taking them out of context? While these cities may be impoverished etc, I find it hard to believe these numbers would be so high.
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 disease reporting to CDC -- to compile national statistics on everything from chlamydia to AIDS to meningitis -- is not required at all. CDC requests that states compile their data and report, but they do so on a voluntary basis. Similarly, CDC cannot dictate prevention strategies, educational messages, or anything else to the states. And typically state health departments cannot dictate such things to local health departments or practicing physicians.
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.
