Avatar f tn t get anything (still looking for that)....I start to hate myself for not speaking up and instead putting my kids in danger. It happens often where I will see a cut on someone or a band-aid and convince myself they may have infected us. I do all that - changing clothes and washing them several times a day because of contamination, washing hands so much I now have a rash, putting band-aids on little scratches when I go in public as to protect myself. I could go on.
Avatar m tn According to the ever-so popular and quite sickening myth, humans can get HIV and AIDS from dogs through bestiality. Do you beleive this to be true? Why? (supporting facts would be helpful) 4. The CDC, otherwise known as Center for Disease control, states that you cannot get HIV or AIDS from dogs. However, the CDC does not specify any means of viral transmition. Why do you think this is? 5. Over 80 percent of my findings on the internet state that you cannot get HIV/AIDS from dogs.
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 Hello. Again. Why are you so worried? Because you have severe HIV ANXIETY, that's why. And since you won't believe what you've been told on the HIV Forum, what you've been told on various HIV/AIDS Hotlines, what I gave you to read and what I've told you numerous times, then it's time you got into therapy. You can only be given the FACTS just so many times before a line must be drawn. I will outline those facts once more and then, for ME, the line will be drawn.
Avatar m tn During these years, there will be no prominent symptoms of HIV/AIDS. One of the dangerous facts about AIDS is that although, during asymptomatic stage, there will be no symptoms, the virus can still be transferred from the infected person.
Avatar n tn Use the search function on this forum. It's been explained over and over.
Avatar m tn Has anyone heard of this hiv like virus in china? If so please share FACTS with me! I'm hoping it's bs.!!
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 n tn My sister recently moved in, she is has AIDS. my husband is concerned that we and our kids can contract it. He is currently doing his CEU hours and HIV explains that we can contract it by sneezing, coughing, muscus. Any body fluids will can live 24 hours on a surface and without knowing if we touch it we can get it. Is this true and How can we prevent it?
Avatar m tn The internet can be very helpful if you learn to accept the facts and only read information that is based on facts not fiction.No one has ever contracted HIV from having a finger inserted in their anus in over 30 years of the HIV/AIDS epidemic.

Avatar m tn Is it possible to have had HIV for so long and not know? Sounds crazy, but I am a normal family man with a house, 2 cars, 3 kids a dog and the fenced in yard, so what do I know.
Avatar m tn And oral sex is basically safe sex -- completely safe with respect to HIV and although not zero risk for other STDs, the chance of infection is far lower than for unprotected vaginal or anal sex. Please educate yourself about the real risks. If you stick with oral sex and condom-protected vaginal or anal sex, you have no HIV worries and very little worry about other STDs.
Avatar m tn Well, thanks for the link. I think you're sort of taking the info out of context. Here's the doc's reply: It is true that "sometimes people with aids test negative for hiv antibodies". But it is exceedingly rare, probably less than 1 in 1,000 infected persons. And as your question suggests, it is seen primarily in people with advanced AIDS, i.e. sick enough to be near death.
Avatar m tn While you do not say much about your exposure history (and do not need to in this case- you have definitive lab test results), the symptoms that you describe are entirely non-specific with many possible causes and are not at all suggestive of HIV, early or late. Further, you have repeated laboratory tests for HIV and syphilis obtained as far out from your exposures as five months which are all negative.

Avatar m tn MY SON HAD UNPROTECTED SEX WITH A PROSTITUTE. HE IS 17 AND HE WAS A VIRGIN...HE IS CIRCUMSISED, DOES NOT DRINK OR USE DRUGS. I AM VERY SCARED AND DEPRESSED THAT HE MIGHT HAVE STI OR HIV. HE HAS BEEN TESTED FOR URINAL YSIS/FECES AFTER SIX DAYS AMD CAME BACK ALL NORMAL, BUT IS NOT CONCLUSIVE BECAUSE IT HAS NOT BEEN LONG ENOUGH. PLEASE IF YOU CAN GIVE ME PIECE OF MIND.
Avatar m tn s just that I read on the cdc site and other forums that oral sex is indeed a risk for HIV and studies have shown this. It leaves me confused and as you know, anxious. Thanks for the answers and support.
Avatar m tn Those websites that say that a bogus and not educated in the subject of hiv and how its transmitted.Stick to the facts and they are if a condom is used correctly and doesn,t break then its 100% affective in the prevention of hiv transmission.Stop trolling websites that peddle garbage.
Avatar n tn and i may be wrong, but i think it could take up to months or longer for hiv to come up on a blood test, so get tested now, and again in 6 months or so. But dont just settle for an HIV test, get tested again for everything.
