Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids virus pictures

hiv

Avatar f tn HIV is the virus that can lead to AIDS. An HIV test will test for antibodies to the HIV virus in your bloodstream (though there are Saliva tests and I beleive some urine based tests). Someone who is HIV+ does not automatically have AIDS. A definition of AIDS is when the CD4 count is measured as being below 250.
Avatar m tn Because HIV is the causative agent of acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS), ICL can be referred to as Non-HIV AIDS. As in AIDS patients, Non-HIV AIDS patients exhibit reduced numbers of CD4+ T-lymphocytes, and many Non-HIV AIDS patients have developed the opportunistic infections or otherwise rare cancers associated with AIDS. Non-HIV AIDS patients may comprise perhaps one percent of all AIDS patients.
Avatar n tn Why does the hiv test is for antibodies and not for the virus??? what if you dont have any Antibodies if a person is close to his/her death, are there any cases where the antibodies where not found and the person dies from the disease i.e AIDS thank you.
Avatar f tn You have to have unprotected anal and/or vaginal sex with someone who has HIV to a risk to aquire HIV.
Avatar n tn If i gave head to a girl what are the odds of contracting the aids virus. I know she was in Chile this summer and had sex there with a Chilean boy. And there's a sex revolution in Chile everyone is having sex. I am worried she might have contracted the virus and maybe me too.
Avatar f tn hiv is not transmitted through oral sex...
Avatar m tn I guess its the guilt which is fueling your anxiety. Please know that HIV virus does not survive in open air. Assuming the other person was HIV + and assuming he had some semen on his hand when he gave you a hand job, the HIV virus in his semen wouldn't have survived once it was out in open air. It doesn't matter if his semen came into ur urethra. Here we have made two assumption and even if both our assumptions are true, you had absolutely no risk.
Avatar m tn stop trying to self diagnose yourself and see a dr. wrong forum.
Avatar f tn HIV and AIDS aren't caused by two different things. HIV is the human immunodeficiency virus. AIDS is the condition one arrives at after that virus has diminished the immune system to a certain point that the immune system struggles to keep the person fully healthy. The answer to the question: HIV can be transmitted from blood, semen, vaginal secretions, and breast milk. These fluids must come in contact with a mucous membrane, damaged tissue, or direct injection into the blood stream.
Avatar f tn Oral sex is not considered a risk for HIV. Saliva contains digestive enzymes that are a hostile environment for the virus and therefore it renders it inactive and unable to infect. But also, you can't get infected by your own blood. You said the blood you found was yours and therefore there's no risk. But even if it was his, it wouldn't matter.
Avatar m tn Magic Johnson takes HAART. There is no such thing as AIDS virus. AIDS is just a progression of HIV stages.

Avatar f tn Hello, Can u kindly explain me how many stages are involved in HIV positive? Can get AIDS as soon as being suffered for HIV?? Can HIV person be recovered like a normal person if taking a medicine regularly and obeying doc's suggestion properly??
Avatar m tn The survey of 230,179 cases of AIDS reported to the AIDS Reporting System initially revealed 299 HIV-seronegative patients. The evaluation of 172 of these patients (58 percent) is complete. Of these 172 patients, 131 have been reclassified as being HIV-positive, 4 have been reclassified as having some other type of defined immunodeficiency, and 8 HIV-exposed infants died before their serostatus could be determined.
Avatar m tn HIV can be transmitted due to sharing needles, this is because the blood interact. Unfortunately, there is no cure for HIV (note that HIV isn't the same as AIDS) but treatment for this virus is really advanced. There are medications that permit people live a completely normal life with HIV without developing AIDS. I hope everything is ok, post your results. Personally, I think you didn't involve in high risk. This virus is very fragile and die easily at normal temperature.
Avatar n tn A HIV test will always pick up the virus no matter what as long as it is 3 months or later. Yes some one will have antibodies if they have progressed to AIDS. No, tests check for antibodies. I believe you are the same person who has posted now under 3 nicknames. If you are please stop doing so, you have been answered.
Avatar m tn is it possible for HIV/AIDS to be transferred thru inhalation devices? a person wit the virus has small amount of blood (puncture wound)on the needle while refilling the inhaler's nicotine liquid and subsequently another person uses the inhaler (electronic cigarette). the needle came in contact wit the liquid. will the virus be transferred this way? please advice. i'm very worried. thanks.

Avatar m tn Your infection begins to develop into AIDS. AIDS is a condition that is caused by the HIV virus. It refers to the substantial destruction of the immune system and subsequent infections that are able to attack the body as a result of this. Semantics aside, it is possible someone does not know they are infected until they have developed into AIDS. 3) No it would not. You need to undergo an HIV test to catch the infection.
Avatar m tn You need to understand that HIV and AIDS are two different subjects, HIV is a condition caused by a retrovirus that attacks the body's immune system and it's progression leads to another one known as AIDS. The transition time that takes to progress to AIDS can be different for different individual, depending on one's immune response. Generally for an individual with no medical assistance to HIV would get in to AIDS stage by 9 years (average).
Avatar m tn AIDS is caused by the HIV virus and everyone who has AIDs has the HIV virus but not everyone who has the HIV virus has AIDS. This is because AIDS is a far advanced stage of HIV infection at which time the infection has progressed to the point at which the infected person's immune system cannot any longer prevent certain infections or other complications of immune deficiency from occurring. The virus is what is passed from person to person and is what causes AIDS.
