hiv

Avatar m tn And what does it mean to have a undetectable viral load? I started seeing someone who is HIV positive and they have an undetectable viral load. We use protection during sex but, foreplay has been done without ( theres no finishing during penetration without a condom)( also there has been rubbing penis to vagina ) I'm falling in love with this person and am concerned when it comes to maybe having children.
Avatar f tn Your tests proved that you did not get HIV. further testing is really not needed. It would have been positive by know if you really had gotten HIV. I can understand the nervousness that one can experience following a stick with a contaminated needle but the fact is, the tests tell the story. you did not get HIV. Mono on the other hand can take a long time to completely resolve.
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 f tn Sorry to hear about your fiance, and oral swab is as good as any other aproveed test, the main issue is the time of the test, you need to have 3 month after exposure test to have a conclusive negative result, regarding the child question, an Hiv postive father can have negative children, there is a technic called sperm washing, im not familiar with, but you should contact and Hiv specialist to get accurate information about this.
Avatar n tn s as my boyfriend and I would like to start planning for children in the near future (2 yrs). I was tested for EVERYTHING on my visit, including HSV1/2 and HIV/AIDS. I came back negative for EVERYTHING except HSV2? I spent nearly 1/2 hour with my doctor asking how? I have NEVER had any type of outbreak (lesion/genitalwart) or common symtoms of this STD? She mentioned my results were so low , that it could be a false positive?
1091149 tn?1396349503 Is there some similar court case i can refer to. Hiv meds cost lots of money, as do treatments, having children when both parents are hiv positive is possible but are expensive. Sueing the pants off this doctor would help give us money to live and raise the daughter we just got sole custody for and possibly have our own child together. We were planning to conceive later this year. Help, we're literally lost, i almost foresee him slipping into depression because if this sick surprise.
Avatar f tn 2) I still feeling my body is a bit weak and one of my lymph nodes is still swollen and my lips having a cold sore, is it a sign of HIV ? ( I went for HIV test but it shows negative for HIV ) 3) Can HIV silence or hidden for many years , and shown up several years after ?
Avatar f tn And there is almost no chance he has HIV. To my knowledge, nobody in the world ever caught HIV from the kind of event you describe. Theoretically it could happen, but the chance is lower than low. DO NOT TEST YOUR CHILD YOURSELF! I cannot imagine a more worrisome and frightening thing for a young child than to be tested at home by a parent for a potentially deadly condition. It is against his best interest and you must not do it.
Avatar m tn HI Vance, What I am saying is that, I read a list of possible problems that may give rise to false positive in the hiv antibody test. One of which being receptive anal sex will, as explain on the text, eventhough the insertive partner is hiv -ve, but because of the sperm from another person will be detected as a foreign 'invading' object in the other persons body, as such giving rise to false positive as it may activate some form of anti-body production.
Avatar m tn Equally, I know of HIV positive people who have successfully resuscitated HIV negative people who have remained HIV negative. Sharing cups, kissing etc etc represent no risk at all.
Avatar m tn Six years ago, I had sex with a girl I just met, and I used a condom, but the condom fell off inside her and I didn't realize it until I finished and pulled out. It was up there pretty far. I remember pulling the condom out.
Avatar n tn She said she wasn’t wet and we stopped having sex after 3-5 minutes. 2) Are muscle and joint pains a sign of HIV? Note: my muscle and joint pains are sharp and last for a few seconds, go away and come back. They are not consistent. 3) Does a positive Lyme disease test mean I might have HIV? 4) I also had a CBC complete blood count test, which can back “no diff” (I think that means normal).

Avatar f tn s getting shingles and not having hiv..I have read that it is very common in children and elderly, but not my age bracket unless hiv or other serious immune prob....thanks for your time...
Avatar m tn Worrying is an understatement, try having someone tell you you're HIV positive. Thank you for the reply, though... the doctor said I should retest in 6 months to make sure it's not HIV 2. Now I'm freaking out about HIV-2.
Avatar n tn She had told me a long time ago that her now husband had tested positive for HIV while in prison. Now they have an almost 2 year old son together. I and my mother both asked her about his health and we were told that he nor she or her husband had HIV- that it must have been a mix up with paper work or something. I realize that the classic exposure risk should be low, but kids do get hurt, and kids naturally want to help.
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 f tn Since the beginning of the HIV/AIDS epidemic, approximately 15,000 children in the United States have been infected with HIV and 3,000 children have died. About 90 percent of those were infected with the virus during pregnancy or birth. HIV transmission from mother to child during pregnancy, labor, delivery or breastfeeding is called perinatal transmission. Perinatal HIV transmission is the most common way children are infected with HIV.
