Hiv positive demographics

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv positive demographics


Avatar f tn I do have a history of lymph problems in my neck after having long term untreated adult tonsillitis for years (now removed, but still have lymph node issues from time to time). Knowing that Philadelphia has a decent sized HIV positive population and not knowing where this guy came from, I am very frightened right now. Knowing the demographics of HIV I fear that I may be infected. I plan on seeing my doctor ASAP, but I am currently uninsured.
Avatar f tn It sounds like any fluids that were released into the condom likely remained inside the condom so I doubt you had any risk. Your partner probably doesn't have HIV to begin with, it's not that common of a disease outside of certain key demographics. If this happened to me, personally, I would not get a test. I'd be more concerned about an unwanted pregnancy in your situation.
Avatar m tn No risk. The fact you named demographics doesn't mean a thing. HIV does not discriminate.
Avatar f tn We were definitely trying to have safe sex, I just think I might be overreacting anyways. I didn't really understand your second post.
Avatar f tn There are no doctors here. This is a moderated HIV prevention forum. Unprotected penetration warrants testing. I understand, it was absolutely brief but it did put you at some amount of risk as anal penetration can certainly rupture rectum's lining, lack of lubrication and thinner tissues increase the risk of friction-related tears in the anus and rectum.
553878 tn?1226507294 The lack of public knowledge. testing, and misconceptions are unbelievable. Hell herpes, warts and vaginal itch get more publicity (for lack of a better word). From what I ascertain we are just the vanguard of a whirl wind yet to come. Powers that be know the stats. Is it because its"mostly an I.V. drug user thing" like they did with HIV for decades. On that note does and to what extent is the government involved in funding for research.
Avatar n tn I asked him how many people he had slept with (2), and he mentioned something about HIV. Now, because I was drunk, the details of this are quite fuzzy. I believe he said he was tested for HIV because one of his past gfs made him get tested for it. I later asked him if he had any diseases and he said no. We used a condom, and he had trouble keeping it up. I don't believe either of us came. When I woke up, the condom was on might nightstand and nothing (no semen) was inside it.
Avatar n tn s, several children who said that she is negative for HIV. I tested anyway August 23; negative. Started another relationship in with a medical profesional, DWF early 50s, several kids, not promiscious. Before we had unprotected sex for the first time 11/18/11 she assured me that she is HIV negative, had been tested, and had been with no one else since long term boyfriend three months before, who is a internal medicine physician.
Avatar n tn I know that demographics play a part in those types of statistics and the partner in question and I are both graduate degree holding 30-somethings in Seattle. Thanks for the help.
Avatar m tn For ex. I had HIV anxiety for the better part of 2 months.Protected vaginal sex, unprotected oral. Experienced a few according to the internet ARS symptoms then got muscle aches, burning and twitching. Tested negative at 10.5 weeks Now I'm really not anxious anymore. I barely even think about it but every now and again for about 2 weeks I get the muscle burning sensation and twitches all over my body and pain.
Avatar f tn Hello, I had an encounter with a guy 4 weeks ago. I was on my period and I just did some hand job and rubbed my chest with his penis. Then he came on my chest three times. There were little spots on my chest but they have been almost healed then. He tried to finger me but I stopped him before he entered,still he has touched my vagina pretty well. I think he might have had pre-cum on his finger. Even though he insists he is clean, I'm freaking out about getting HIV.
Avatar m tn I am concerned that this is primary HIV. I saw my doctor, who ordered the HIV test (4 weeks), PSA, Hep B and C. He mentioned that statistically my chances of infection are low. Results due mid-week, but I can't keep from worrying. Positive test would pretty much mean loss of my wife, family, and most anything else important to me. I keep reading that HIV is not common in U.S.
Avatar m tn thier is no reason to presume that the window period for hiv 2 is longer than hiv 1. anyway was your exposure in west africa becuase thats the home of hiv 2?
Avatar n tn Why would it matter if homosexuals went there? Do you think all homosexuals have HIV? Do you think no heterosexuals have it?
Avatar n tn As the doctors are always stating,you can never tell who has HIV, but population demographics are on the whole more important than frequencies of exposure. BUT, note the 'on the whole' comment. There are many others outside of these risk groups.
Avatar f tn Not sure what you're asking. Once a person is HIV+, they will always be positive. A positive person who has unprotected intercourse with ANYONE, pregnant or not...can infect that person. Having unprotected sex with a positive person is always a risk, but will not DEFINITELY result in that person getting infected. Does that help?
Avatar m tn sir i am worried if i tested positive then sir tell me hiv pcr test after 7 days of exposure is reliable and accurate sir i was not wearing condom and i was completely naked and nude but no sexual intercourse she gave me handjob and rub my penis with her hands tell me hiv risk she pution massage lotion also on my penis sir i rub my penis on her naked body but no penetration and no blowjob sir u think i am infected with hiv virus sir i tested for hiv pcr test rna after 7 days and came back posit
463897 tn?1468013750 Is this group for parents of young adults aged 18-26, or young parents who are aged 18-26? Seems a conflicting vibe if both demographics are posting. Love to find a group of parents discussing emerging/young adults issues.
Avatar f tn At a year, a false positive, you wouldn't get a false negative this late.
