hiv

Avatar f tn I would like to know the risks of taking in a HIV positive child into your home. This child is 14 and has been HIV positive since birth. Her mother recently passed away from aids and a family member of mine is considering taking her in. I have concerns about this child being around my children and my nieces and nephews. Are my concerns unfounded??
Avatar n tn Can a couple, both of whom are HIV positive? if so, how risky it is for the child? also, is it a responsible thing to be doing?
Avatar f tn I recently started dating a female. We basically did everything but have intercourse. Before having intercourse we both decided to get full std screening. Hers came back hiv "positive"!!! They performed some testing and her viral load was sky high in the millions the Dr. Said. I now believe I need to test because I may have become infected. We made out heavily and one occasion we did so after getting her tongue pierced. My fear is that I remember tasting blood during the kissing.
Avatar n tn Is it possible to to have 2 HIV negative children with both parents having HIV positive without their parents taking any precaution since they both came to know of it a few weeks back.? Can you please let us know what are the chances of these children becoming HIV positive later on in thier life when they grow or since they are HIV negative they are perfectly healthy and there will be no chances of them becoming HIV positive any time in their life.
Avatar n tn Tq Teak and last 2 questions, I thought if she got hiv from her biological parents, the test we did (Elisa)on 7 days should have been positive as her mother passed her some hiv antibody and secondly can a hiv positive child survive healthyly for over 9 years without any hiv treatment. Thank you Teak.
Avatar m tn if a person is hiv positive and have sex with an hiv negative person without any protection is it possible that the person gets infected too
Avatar f tn I work with a person that is HIV positive she sneezed,the next day i woke up with a soar throat and a sore body am i infected?
Avatar n tn No you cant get hiv by the way you describe. HIV does not multiply outside the host Hiv is transmitted by unprotected vaginal/anal sex sharing drug works mother to child.
Avatar n tn Rightly said by snippets, there is no linkage between male fertility and HIV. An HIV positive male is capably of getting his partner concieved if his sperm counts are above 20 million / ml. The risk involved is, transmission of virus to "would be mother" and then to the child. However, seek medical help in your country if you want an infection free baby, being an HIV positive male. Technology is available I guess.
Avatar n tn I recently had sex with an HIV positive girl.We used protection, Latex condoms.Should be i worried and is testing required even if a tested negatived a month before i met her?
Avatar f tn I was hanging out with a guy who is hiv positive. We didn't have sex anal or oral. However, I did ejaculate into his mouth. Is it possible hiv could have been transmitted this way?
Avatar m tn You don't guess at HIV, you test. She can test 3 months post exposure to obtain a conclusive test result. Please do not start multiple threads. Keep all your posts on one thread.
Avatar f tn People aren't "carriers" of HIV, they either are infected or they're not. "Carrier" is assumed to mean someone who has come in contact with a virus (or other organism), can transmit it to other, but not have it themselves. Doesn't happen with HIV. If someone close to you has HIV, they should be relying on their ID doc for information. NO offense, but I wouldn't advise you educating others, as there is still so much you don't understand about HIV.
Avatar m tn Hi I had sex with a guy but came to know later that he is HIV positive. we have use protection during sex but I want to know can I get hiv by deep kissing, lovebites (got marks on neck and shoulders) and by being sucked.
Avatar f tn My question is how likely could the positive monospot test be a false positive for ARS? My more regular doctor is very skeptical about mono. I add to that that I have the feeling the girl I have been seeing has a more extensive sexual history than I and suffers from myasthenia gravis, which may or may not be associated with HIV. I know that I may be freaking myself out, but am worried that my one time being a bit cavalier could turn out to be very bad indeed.
Avatar m tn I know I read on here ZERO risk but I'm going for my final test next week and am certain it will be positive! I have swollen nodes, groin, elbows, knees ! As well I am losing weight, and some fever !
Avatar n tn In addition, if you are not HIV positivbe then you cannot have given your wife HIV. 2) After the third time, am I infected with HIV? I don't know. I doubt it but you seem not to have had an HIV test yourself I’m promising my self not to do any of this again for the best of my wife and son. 3) Must I get my self checked for HIV and when must I do it?
Avatar f tn I got cut from the same part about 5 mins after that. My friend has HIV. Is it possible for me to get HIV.
Avatar m tn I know I can't get an accurate test until week 12, but what are your thoughts that I may have been exposed to HIV? I have no idea of his status. Sorry for posting again, but a different set of symptoms and fears. Thanks so much for your time.
Avatar m tn i want to have a child my wife i hiv negative but i am hiv positive how do i go about it with out infecting my partner?

Avatar m tn So I am little lost. 2. Can hiv positive father transfer the infection to his child, without ever infecting the mother? Background: About 9 years ago I received unprotected oral sex from two sperate people and about 17 years ago I had unprotected sex. My wife was recently tested negative for STD. I have been married for 9 years now, my wife is the only person I have ever had any sexual relationships with.
Avatar f tn I am hiv positive with a undetectable viral load, last tested about 3 months ago. So, this is my situation, I irresponsibly left a used tampon utensil that I placed back inside the wrapper after usage on the floor of the bathroom and forgot about it. I have a 2 year old daughter who I found in the bathroom with the used tampon utensil (still in the wrapper) in her hand. I took it away, ask her did she put it inside her mouth and she said no.
