Avatar f tn Get your Google out and type in Celebrities with genital herpes. You will see quite a few familiar faces. Get yourself a cup of tea and google it and you will see what I mean. Strewth!
Avatar n tn HHH who seems to be the main HIV expert says that any 1 risk for a man who has vaginal sex with a HIV positive female is 1 in 2000. I do not understand how you can call that high risk activity. I aint bashing anyone who said it was high risk activity either cause you all know more than me, but going by what Dr. HHH said, I dont get where this high risk comes from. Of course 1 in 2000 or not, its not a chance im willing to take. So I dont know really what to believe anymore.
Avatar n tn They raised awareness themselves and put a better face on HIV than was more positive. It helped them get celebrities, money, fund raisers etc. The amounts they get comparitively is amazing.
Avatar n tn Just reading today how they are thinking of mandatory HIV tests made me say why NOT do the hep test too since there are so many MORE people who have contracted it than AIDS - while you've got the blood there why NOT test it anyway to help!
Avatar f tn My blood test were negative for igg and igm was positive. My culture came back positive for hsv 1. did your GYN say what isolated meant? Im not sure if my new bf has hsv1 im afraid to ask or even mention it. My ex dumped me and said he was negative but had a visible sore the day he dumped me :( its so unfair.
29837 tn?1414538248 that very few celebrities will stick their neck out to stump for this disease...with all the hate mail they receive...mainly from *other* people who are infected... everybody has an opinion about who they think should represent us......if they don't come out, they are hiding and adding to the stigma, if they do come out, they aren't the people who should be representing us...
Avatar m tn HCV, which can cause liver disease and liver cancer, is most often transmitted following large or repeated exposure to infected blood. Persons who use injection drugs; are HIV-positive; or are children of infected mothers have the highest risk of infection.
163305 tn?1333672171 I've mentioned this before and I had to take alot of flak for it, I'm not talking about this forum, I am talking about the outside world needing to unite. Everyone on this forum is really fair and positive, and it don't matter if you slammed thousands of times or if you never did, you will always find support on this forum. So how do we pull this off?
Avatar f tn I did mention about the lack of funding for the HepC research. I sent them a list of the celebrities who have come out with their Hep C diagnosis and I sent them a link to the article about the Vegas outbreak.... all to make a point that they need to do a segment on this disease! I figure if we can get alot of us sending in emails that they may notice it more than just my email.
419309 tn?1326506891 They were very specfic and clear when they said they incinerate the remains of anyone who tests positive for HIV, HBV and HCV. They will not take the remains of people who are incarcerated. Why? Because they believe there is a high chance they will have been exposed to HIV, HBV and HCV. Did I make this rule up? No! LOL. The first time I had to sit through a whole hour of "how to sign 'em up" was right after I finished a particularly rough treatment.
4705307 tn?1447973922 Many folk who did contract hcv via drug use,be it via a needle or a coke straw have long since left that life behind.There are many folk in positions of authority who use drugs,celebrities,politicians,solicitors-it cuts across the spectrum. Not every ex user feels worthless,surely they wouldn't be seeking treatment if they believed that was the case.Everybody is Somebody.
186606 tn?1263513790 The NP told me that there is a big increase of positive patients in our office and I have read here for a few years now and it seems it is increasingly difficult for people to find doctors available to treat their HCV. The govt. utterly ignores us as a disease population it seems. Now that getting an infection in a hospital is the third most likely way to die in America, and that is where I contracted HCV, I wonder if that is contributing to the increase.
233616 tn?1312790796 Absent this, a very different spiral is indeed possible. Because no one listened in time, there are now African countries with 70% HIV positive status. Let that sink in for a moment. Those countries were and are predominately heterosexual, and yet that virus has basically infected 3/4 of some countries. Here's one example of how retro virus's to not always "behave" nor are they spread only via the ways initiatially suspected.
Avatar n tn I understand (and am irritated with) the commonly held social standard that everyone who tests positive for any kind of hsv should disclose to any/all partners...all the time...period. This is irriating as a HIGH percentage of people have oral hsv-1, plenty of whom have no idea (including my exboyfriend who had never had a coldsore)...and there is never the expectation that someone who knows that have hsv-1 orally will disclose to partners prior to kissing.
30678 tn?1217992847 Hey there, I am one of those people that listened to that ****. I found out 2 yrs ago and have been dabbling with herbs to try and contain this disease. I have to admit it seems to have kept my enzymes in check but my VL went from 450,000 to 2.8 million. So, let's watch what she does and then more than likely, go on tx later. I hope for her sake it works for her!
Avatar m tn Will she be under medication? Will the doctors know how to test this?
233616 tn?1312790796 This will further remove ordinary people's ability to use their own discretion (by choosing where to spend *their* money) in deciding where they go for healthcare and what type of healthcare they'll be able to access. And of course the politicians and hollywood celebrities who so vigorously tout these policies for "the little people" will in no way shape or form participate in (nor be subjected to) socialized healthcare at all.
1647691 tn?1363727302 It is so confusing..... you get positive and then that was false positive.... I am so sorry. It is beyond me to understand it...I wish you God to be with you at this very difficult time. I am very worry about my 2nd try... my appointment to see my Dr is Sat. but they called me to move it to Monday because here in LA freeway is going to close for the weekends. I can wait to see my Dr and asked him why my ivf didn't work??? Good luck to all of you.... this thing is getting so complicated.
Avatar n tn If you make these changes nature will take its course.... remember time heals all..... be patient..... be positive..... think about the end reward.... no more hanging your head in shame that you couldnt get it up and have sex with the girl that wanted you.... Everytime I have the temptation of watching porn, I think of the times where I couldnt perform in real life scenarios because of it ...... I HOPE THIS HELPS...
