480448 tn?1426952138 it just delays possible life-saving treatment, not to mention, may keep you from the likely relief of a negative result. HIV education is vital....and in this day and age, not ONE more person should be getting infected. It is completely avoidable. If you have been tested, and your result is NEG at 3 months, you do NOT have HIV, despite any "symptoms" you are sure you have. One can NEVER EVER gauge a risk by physical symptoms.
1177879 tn?1266467068 Pick up your telephone this instant and call your local HIV/AIDS Hotline and get the facts. Oh've already been given the facts but choose not to believe them. What else do you want and/or expect us to tell you?
Avatar f tn About 2 days ago, my throat started hurting, and although I have no other symptoms, my throat feels sore and raw. Could this be a symptom of HIV? Also I am a smoker, almost 10 -12 smokes a day. Can HIV symptoms manifest this soon? Thanks!
Avatar m tn I was involved with a call girl but my condom slipped , i was since diagnosed for chlamidia and im now worried i might have caught hiv because in this part of the world its rife.I saw clearish fluids all round in the condom and not at the tip of the condom-could these have come from the woman? when the condom slipped. The woman removed my condom and i fear she might have touched my sensitive parts with her fluids and may be infected me?
Avatar m tn We don't advise people to test in no risk situations, it is a waste of time and money. We don't have any lessons to learn, we didn't place ourselves at risk for HIV. And, there is a big difference between one being "full of themself" verus confident. We're knowledgeable about HIV and know what we're talking about, which is why we're confident in our answers. If you don't like our answers, find another site.
Avatar m tn I see a UCLA study that states that alcohol and increase risk of HIV from oral sex. There's a UCLA study of HIV patients feeling stigmatized. A UCLA study for demand for PEP. UCLA study for anal cancer rates in homosexual men. Here's a UCLA scientist saying Antiretroviral drugs can eradicate AIDS epidemic. Hmmm.. wonder why that one hasn't come to pass yet.
480448 tn?1426952138 I want to discuss the great oral sex debate. This is probably THE most common topic we see on the HIV forum. We get criticized a lot for stating that oral sex is "no risk". What people fail to understand is HOW we came to that conclusion. You have to look at the SCIENTIFIC facts, along with the statistics. I'm going to try to explain them to you...
Avatar n tn and that is coming from someone whom is not an expert in the field of HIV, and a website I do not think is all that legitimate and tactful in providing HIV knowledge. Testing earlier than 3 months does not mean that testing is not reliable, it just gives you a "better" idea on your future 12 week result. No less, testing is like a bell curve. The first few weeks are indeed the most important, when the body has a chance to create antibodies to the virus. Again, as I reiterate, ...
Avatar f tn If people got educated, the number of new HIV cases would drop drastically and HIV anxiety would virtually disappear. Be part of the solution............learn about HIV and then teach all your friends, and they can teach their friends and we can keep paying it forward until everyone is educated. And disease free. Just think about it, OK? I'd really appreciate it.

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 HIV is not transmitted by kissing, even with sores in the mouth. Despite the billions of kissing events in the AIDS era, not one case of HIV has been known to be transmitted that way, even though millions of those kisses undoubtedly were with cuts in the mouth or on the lips.
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 n tn Well about a month after the time with no condom i got the flu and i was like what if its aids so i look up facts on hiv and aids on the inet. It said a month to two months after wards you can get flu like symptoms. This was about a month ago. With the flu i lost about 10 lbs. It also said loss of weight was a sign. I then saw other symptoms and began having them but that may have been in my head. Ive been very stressed since theis time and had diarrhea off and on since this time.
Avatar m tn 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 One week after the sex, by using antibiotics I felt very well and didn't feel fever and sore throat anymore. Regarding these facts about our sex, would you think I was infected by HIV? How probable is that? Thanks.
Avatar m tn Latex condoms, when used consistently and correctly, are highly effective in preventing the sexual transmission of HIV, the virus that causes AIDS. In addition, consistent and correct use of latex condoms reduces the risk of other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), including diseases transmitted by genital secretions, and to a lesser degree, genital ulcer diseases. Condom use may reduce the risk for genital human papillomavirus (HPV) infection and HPV-associated diseases, e.g.
Avatar f tn Sometimes my ears Plug up and the stuff coming out of m lungs and nose is dark yellow and green. Are these HIV symptoms? Should I get tested? I also noticed a Nicole sized rash on the top of my hand but it may be a bruise as its not itchy and not raised. I'm freaking out here!
Avatar m tn No incident HIV infections among MSM who practice exclusively oral sex. Int Conf AIDS 2004 Jul 11-16; 15:(abstract no. WePpC2072)??Balls JE, Evans JL, Dilley J, Osmond D, Shiboski S, Shiboski C, Klausner J, McFarland W, Greenspan D, Page-Shafer K?University of California, San Francisco, San Francisco, United States Oral transmission of HIV, reality or fiction?
Avatar m tn Suppose, If she sucks my penis without condom and then I ejaculate in her mouth. Then, is it more risky to HIV ? 3. Is there any HIV case recorded in history due to oral sex ? What are the facts about oral sex these days ? 4. In above case, testing which is after 3 months, is really required..?? 5. If one partner is positive and other is negative. So every single act with positive partenr make you also positive.
Avatar n tn I'm constantly amazed that with the wealth of information available for HIV prevention, so many people remain ignorant of the facts. (Ignorant does NOT mean stupid) Besides getting information from your local HIV/AIDS centers, or the HIV Hotlines available in virtually every community, one of the best educations you can get is simply spending time reading the posts on our HIV Prevention Forum.
Avatar n tn I also masterbated and ejaculated; mostly to clean out my urethra. I got tested for various STDs and HIV and I get the results tomorrow. No matter what the result is of the HIV test I plan to be tested again in about two months and again three months after that. I can deal with any other STD, but I can't deal with HIV. What do ya'll think about all of this???? Any opinions, advice, probabilities....anything would be helpful and infinitely appreciated. Thank you.
Avatar n tn 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. " DR HANSFIELD "I am sure you can find lots of people who believe that HIV is transmitted by oral sex, but you will not find scientific data to support this unrealistic concern..." DR HOOK "HIV is not spread by touching, masturbation, oral sex or condom protected sex."- DR.
Avatar f tn You are torturing yourself over urban myths and the general public's ignorance about HIV. HIV IS VERY VERY VERY DIFFICULT TO GET!!!! IT IS NOT THE COMMON COLD. HIV requires a set of near perfect circumstances to allow for transmission. You would be better served worrying about lightning strikes. Get yourself some help, and this kind of anxiety and irrational thinking is very unhealthy for you and will only continue to spiral out of control if you don't address it NOW.
Avatar n tn I'm going to get tested in the next week anyways, but is there anyone who knows any facts that could make the chance of AIDS very low and that of a yeast infection very high? Thanks for reading and hope someone has an insight.
Avatar n tn Testing does not give a person HIV but it does give them the power to know what is going on and whether or not they have the infection. Most tests are negative and if you were so unfortunate as to have HIV, the test would allow you to seek treatment sooner. There is no reason to delay or avoid HIV testing. I hope my comments are helpful.
