Avatar f tn Seek therapy for your HIV obsession. HIV doctors can't diagnose from symptoms, however you are trying to work up an HIV theory based on symptoms. Since you don't have any medical training it doesn't make sense that for you to say that you can diagnose from symptoms since HIV doctors can't do it.
Avatar m tn Hi guys, Last week, i went to a house party with my friends. We started drinking a bit. There were many people there . My friend even told me that there were HIV +ve people there and i should be careful sexually . I never did anything except play video games . After some time, i went and slept on the couch. Next morning , there was a needle stick like mark on my arm . I think that someone might have injected HIV blood into me. The puncture site was not deep.

Avatar m tn She would have to be positive for you to have any chance what so ever of becoming HIV positive. Your OCD run along many lines and honestly you need to be in treatment for it. Have you seen a psychologist in the past? You have mentioned reading articles about HIV prevention, protection, etc. but what have you actually learned that you believe? It seems to me that doubt will always be there and doubt is a big part of OCD. Check out this website: http://www.nami.org/Template.cfm?
Avatar n tn I think I have been infected with HIV. My symptoms include headaches, abdominal pain, gastrointestinal problems, leg pain, fatigue, heart problems (palpatations, pain, shortness of breath), and little brown specs on my tongue. This has been going on for about 2.5 years but I havent had the thrush, or the swollen lymph nodes, which I have read is real common in infected individuals. I also know that I have a leaky heart valve which makes my [self] diagnosis even harder.

Avatar m tn You can not tell by looking at the physical appearance of people that they are or are not positive. You know there is a high rate of hiv in Thailand Momar even if the woman is not a prostitute this carries over to the general population. Try not to worry yourself with what the internet, learn your status after three months and NEVER again man. My ex-girlfriend told me only one hour a day when i was at the height of my worrying, but i could not help myself worrying endlessly and i lost her.

936016 tn?1332769204 Diagnosis may be difficult and uncomfortable but in Western Industrialised countires knowing your HIV status - positive or negative is ALWAYS a good thing. Knowing you are HIV positive and engaging in medical care will preserve your life to a normal lifespan. It sounds obvious, but in order to acquire HIV there has to be a significant exposure. A significant sexual exposure means unprotected vaginal and or anal (or both) penetrative sex with a person who already has HIV infection.
Avatar n tn hi my name is Hoo I had protected sex with a prostitute in Malaysia she was from Kenya black cute girl,then after sex I didn't carefully look at the condom but it seems alrights but after reminding myself i doubt that and after searching in internet I understand that Kenya is a dangerous country for HIV and it has 6.
Avatar n tn Yes, unprotected oral sex performed on my manhood was my only exposure. Took HIV antibody/antigen test + other std test 3 days after the act because the sore throat appeared just the morning following the act. All these tests came back negative, at least implying that I have been clean prior to the act. (It was my first sexual encounter in 1.5 years). Now, I have to wait for so long to get a conclusive test. But the more I see symptoms (particularly rash), the more I freak out.
Avatar m tn is it possible i'll turn into positive on twelfth week really scared PLZ reply me friends...........................................................................................................................
Avatar f tn I didn't think much of it as I admit I didn't know much about hep c but after googling I found out that hep c can live for weeks on objects and it's easier to catch than hiv. I am now freaking out, I'm not sure when she last used this mascara, she also had a scratch above her eye. Am I at risk?
936016 tn?1332769204 Researchers form the San Francisco Dept of Public Health have found that increased HIV testing rates and also improved and increased uptake of the use of anti-hiv medications - (anti-retorviral drugs - or ARV's for short) has resulted in a reduction in the "community HIV viral load" on San Francisco. Viral load is the term used to describe the amount of HIV in a persons blood stream and or body fluids.
Avatar m tn 12/13 weeks is considered conclusive by the cdc. chances your negative @11.5 weeks turning positive is close to impossible. white hairs can be a just getting older, a vitamin deficiency, and sometimes stress.
