Common Questions and Answers about Hiv aids zimbabwe statistics


Avatar f tn hie please I'd like to know the type of HIV testing they use in Zimbabwe and also its window period
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 f tn One dr i talked to just told me that a severe symptom can be manifest if one is infected by both HIV 1 and 2.And said HIV 2 has no established meds for it.I will hold on for my next test any way -thanks for your help.
Avatar n tn I would like to assess my risk factor relative to the prevalence of HIV/AIDS in this region of the world and the potential of a remaining window period. Also, am I being absolutely excessive in testing?
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 m tn Well, unfortunately, you had a risk by having unprotected sex with someone who is positive. This doesn't mean you will definitely become infected. You need to test for HIV and be SURE to consistently wear condoms with your wife until you have a conclusively negative HIV test at 3 months post exposure. She also could be at risk for other STDs, so condoms are a MUST!
Avatar f tn A friend in Zimbabwe where i used to work has written to me saying she has lost her voice for 5 months. She has seen several ENT docs and says shes taken every med. She had her tonsils removed 4 years ago after histoplasmosis. Shes HIV+ since birth and 22 years old. Its well controlled with no other immune problems. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn Am a 24 years old man from Zimbabwe who had an unprotected vaginal sex with a CSW sex 12.3 weeks ago. Did have tested at 3.6 weeks using an Elisa Combo test from one of medical laboratory in the country and the result was non reactive, got tested again at 7, 8, 9 weeks at local VCT using an Alere HIV 1/2 antibody kit all negative, at 10.3 weeks had a DNA PCR test which came negative, at 11.6 weeks got another antibody test which came negative and lastly at 12.
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 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.
Avatar n tn She said she had been tested for ghoneria, syphilis, hepatitus and a few others (but not HIV/AIDS) the month before when she went to her gyno to get another prescription for birth control. She claims to have never met with someone over the internet for sex, and states her number of partners as 5. After I saw the statistic about 1 in 2000 getting infected after one encounter with an HIV+ girl, this made me feel a little bit better, but theres never any source for the statistic.
Avatar m tn Hie, I feel awful to say this but l committed one silly mistake when l recently travelled to Zimbabwe in Africa on a UN mission. I have a couple of friends l made in Zimbabwe and we had a night out at a bar and brothel in Harare 3 days ago. I had a couple of drinks and l danced with a prostitute. We went to the back rooms and l started to finger her. I usually bite my nails. I fingered her and then she got a condom and put it on me.
Avatar m tn Oral sex is not a risk of contracting HIV. Whatever is causing your symptoms has nothing to do with HIV.
Avatar m tn can the testing method called Pcr detect hiv as early as one week from exposure and how conclussive is it
