Avatar m tn Have the results of the British Medical Journal study of 2000 on circumcision been validated or is there new information on transmission and circumcision??? As always would app. Teaks answer... New member..
Avatar f tn I have a quick question about this particular part of the journal by Nursegirl. "Medical Exposures. You cannot and will not EVER be infected by a medical procedure, like having your blood drawn, or an IV inserted. Medical professionals do NOT re-use needles, period. Mainly because if they did, they would be placing themselves at risk for all kinds of infections, and they simply wouldn't do that.
Avatar m tn I noticed that you titled your post HIV...are you HIV+ or are you afraid that you might be? I only ask becasue if you are afraid that you might be the best thing to do is go get tested. This way you would know one way or another and you could save yourself alot of worry. Depression is hard to deal with but you can overcome it. I would suggest that you see a psychatrist. They are trained in helping people deal with and overcome anxiety and depression.
Avatar f tn I found nursegirl or nurseypoos journal entry on oral sex and hiv prevention but can't find her on here anymore-is it possible to repost for us or tell us how to locate it.
7188197 tn?1399467911 This is a Journal entry from the one and only ViCourageous that I truly love - She is awesome. But this article helps to understand what the true meaning of addiction is and what is really happening to us. Right now I am struggling mentally pretty bad. I wanted to share. This is a really tough journey and at times I just cant take much more, but knowing what the expect is keeping me to suck it up and push forward.

1831637 tn?1323268054 Scientific trials have shown that male circumcision can reduce a man’s risk of becoming infected with HIV during heterosexual intercourse by up to 60 percent. These findings have led to the decision by UNAIDS and the World Health Organization to recommend circumcision as an important new element of HIV prevention. Since the decision was made, the demand for circumcision has been increasing. Thoughts?
936016 tn?1332769204 Many of the questions we answer on this Forum and also the Freedomhealth Sexual Health Forum relate to anxiety about HIV and also possible early HIV symptoms. One of the main problems in relying on HIV symtoms themselves is that they are notoriously vague and almost all the symptoms may in fact be symptoms of a different disease. The best method always of diagnosing HIV is to have a modern HIV test.
Avatar n tn There seems to be a lot of discussion on whether you can receive HIV from performing oral sex. I think I have come to the conclusion that the possibility is there, but an extremely low chance. Has anyone had any experience with this in the past? I have never had sex with a guy, and only one time did a guy ejaculate in my mouth, and that was 10 years ago or so. Any information would be beneficial.
Avatar m tn Just wondering why and how it is not possible to get hiv from giving oral sex to a man. I know I am negative but just curious why it is not possible. I took my final in home test at 6 months and negative.

Avatar f tn I get PM's alot from people asking me about anxiety and HIV and the primary question is wanting to know how to get over the anxiety and how I did it. So I decided to write about it so that you guys can see that it CAN be done. A number of years ago I cheated on my boyfriend with somebody else, I foolishly thought that this other guy really liked me blah blah blah!! I got drunk one night and had unprotected sex with him (lesson number one is that casual sex and alcohol do not mix well!!).
480448 tn?1426952138 I am very honored to be a regular contributor on the HIV Prevention Forum here at MH. The forum is very busy, and we often get the same inquiries over and over. I figured that putting together a journal entry covering the most popular topics, and just laying out the facts may be helpful. I also invite Lizzie Lou and Teak to share their thoughts, and to cover anything I may have missed.
Avatar m tn b) Is hiv testing at 6 months still valid-i read a journal that claims the hiv is changing due to ARVs and might remain undetected by a newly infected person via antibody tests for longer than a year?
Avatar m tn It is the Fear that kills me..
2073572 tn?1334304607 The window period occurs between the beginning of HIV infection and the demonstration of detectable antibodies to the virus. The window period is almost three to four weeks. Nevertheless it can be extended or longer. The antibody blood tests like ELISA, western blot test, rapid tests, performed during the window period may provide false negative results. Antibodies take almost three weeks to be produced after HIV infection. They become detectable by four or six weeks after HIV infection.
Avatar m tn After all, the need to account for EVERY single person in the population, therefore they cover persons with even the most REMOTE illness, that could hinder any possible test,...not just HIV tests. Having contacted 2 ID doctors, they too are in agreement with the views expressed on the Doctor Forum, that nearly 98% of persons show up HIV + by 8 weeks. THey too have never seen an 8 week test turn positive. But then again...it is up to you.
Avatar m tn in that journal it is said hiv can be transmitted by a single episode.it is opinion based journal, not completely fact based.
Avatar n tn Then we had sex once with a condom, and had sex probably 4 or 5 more times without a condom (he did NOT ejaculate inside me those times!) -- Come to find out.. he was HIV+ . He NEVER told me any of the times we had sexual intercourse. He just recently told me...i have not had sex with him for the last 2 years! I cant think of any symptoms i experienced after those times we had sex, but i have probably had 7 yeast infections in the last 5 1/2 years...
936016 tn?1332769204 //www.freedomhealth.co.uk/sexual-health/hiv-testing/125/ ) and also our information on novel testing methods for more information ( http://freedomhealth-co-uk.blogspot.com/2010/06/std-sti-hiv-and-hepatitis-b-and-c.html ) What happens during seroconversion? The article (http://emedicine.medscape.com/article/211873-overview ) also gives a rough timeline of the different stages of HIV infection. Day 0: A person is infected with the HIV virus.
Avatar m tn My anxiety is through the roof thinking that I some how contracted HIV so that could explain some of my symptoms. This was a first and last time thing for me. Curiosity (and stupidity) got the best of me. Now that I did this high risk activity I regret it and worry.
Avatar m tn I seem to be suffering from HIV anxiety because after doing a non risk activity as judged by the HIV prevention Forum Im always worrying and obssessing about HIV. Wherever I look or whatever I hear I link to HIV, telling OMG its a Sign to tell me I am really infected. So I ask myself a question? Is it really my head doing this or is it really a sign that im infected and going to be the first infected trough fingering....
Avatar m tn A slutty tranny came up to me and we ended up ******* on the roof of the club. Basically I ****** him in the *** using a condom. Now I have called the HIV hotline, posted on HIV forum, and called doctors. ALL TELLING ME THAT I HAD NO RISK!!! (protection = no risk). In total, I have talked to about 15 professionals, and they don't recommend testing and said that if they were in my situation, they would simply move on. For some freaking reason I can't seem to absorb these facts....
Avatar m tn She sat on top of me with my bare penis and may have penetrated an inch or two for about twenty seconds. Is there a risk for HIV / STD? I tested at six weeks and everything was negative for HIV, gonorrhea, syphyllis etc.. but last week I got pain in my hip and abdomen as well as groin muscle. Would this be too late for symptoms of chlamydia or gonorrhea.
Avatar m tn wow...i'm amazed. did you keep a journal or something? hiv is transmitted through... unprotected vaginal / anal intercourse sharing iv drug works mother to child clearly you can see that nothing you have described put you at risk for contracting hiv.
Avatar m tn I appreciate all the work you guys do and the journal you wrote over ways to catch HIV was great. This is truly just a questions with no fears involved.
Avatar n tn Most likely she did not have any kind of bleeding in her mouth but one cannot be 100% sure... Am I at a risk of HIV transmission ? Pls let me know..
Avatar m tn I've read your journal on HIV and oral sex, and its very reassuring, but as you probably know, you soon forget the reassuring bits and your mind starts spinning again, im now at a point where im feeling suicidal, this has once again ruined my life.
