Hiv positive having children

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv positive having children


Avatar n tn but that was the case before this) This is about raising my children (as teak stated)....WITH A HIV POSITIVE FAMILY MEMBER! (I think he missed that)...thus the reason for being under the "HIV prevention forum"... But I'd expect it takes some from of an educated guess to correlate the two, huh? *sigh* Dumbo, I hope whatever your situation is (diabetes??) that you have success in living a long life. Thank you all again!!!

Avatar m tn I don't know if i can stand to wait till the HIV test window period (1 months). I know that contracting HIV while having protection is so improbable, and that crossing the street would be more dangerous.. I know all the stats, i read all articles about HIV prevention, protection, ... But still, i can't overcome my fears. I'm in a very high anxiety status. Any professional advice to help me?
Avatar f tn I have just found out that my nanny is hiv-positive. She has cared for all of my children, having been employed with us for 5 years. What are the risks of my children getting infected? I am so worried.
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 m tn Meeting up and she bombed me with sad news that she is HIV positive. She was infected by her ex bf who cheated on her. Atleast she was bold telling me the truth. I still want to continue relationship with her after seeing the boldness of her telling me the truth and honesty.
Avatar m tn I know thr is no thrill but i just want her as i find her ideal mate and honest....
Avatar n tn I don't know the statistics, but before jumping to any conclusions, I would check out the chances of a false positive versus the chances of being a non-responding HIV carrier. It wouldn't surprise me if a false positive was more likely! Dobber21 is right - the doctor of your friend should be getting some sort of validation to make that conclusion, like follow-up Ab tests, plus Western blots to detect HIV proteins. Were all these definitely carried out?
936016 tn?1332769204 These symptoms may be the signs of a recently acquired HIV infection, but not all HIV tests will be able to detect whether an individual is HIV positive during the period of acute HIV infection. If you have any of these symptoms and have had a risky sexual exposure you should get tested for HIV. See our HIV testing page ( ) and also our information on novel testing methods for more information ( http://freedomhealth-co-uk.
Avatar m tn Didn't think much of it as this has happened a lot when I travel. Could have passed something to children at this point as we were all in close contact. 2-3 weeks later, my children got ill, sore throats, feeling very bad, stayed home from school a few days. Eventually got better, but still some unusual fatigue the next couple of weeks, and sore throat that took a whiel to go away. My son still has a bit of phlegm and cough in the mornings.
Avatar m tn However, I cannot imagine going through the rest of my life having no idea where it came from and quite possibly having it end my marriage. I refuse to stay married to a man who believes I cheated. However, he believes he now has hard evidence I'm keeping something from him. I know my number is low and a possible false positive so I am currently awaiting the results of an HSV-1/HSV-2 Type Specific retest as well as the results for the Western Blot test.
Avatar m tn Hi guys, ever since I have had an incredibly low risk exposure with HIV as I volunteered to take care of HIV positive children in a pool where I did come in contact with them i.
Avatar f tn Hi, i just tested low positive at 2.19 for hsv2, i think, i was in shock when the dr told me. it was 2. something, anyhow, i have been tested religoously for the last 10 years and always rendered a negative result, i have been with my current partner for the last year, he claims to never have had any symptoms. I have never had any symptoms at all. have always tested negative and am not promiscuouis at all! I truely do not believe this test result, the dr.
Avatar f tn He was very unlikely to be HIV positive. 2. If he was HIV positive, your risk of acquisition of HIV would only be 1 in 1000 per episode. 3. You had an HIV test at 10 weeks when nearly 99% of tests that are going to be positive would have already become positive. Put all of these facts together and you can be sure, you do not have HIV. No need to worry. No further testing needed. Hope this is helpful.
Avatar n tn We can not figure out how my HPV was negative and his is obviously positive because he is having warts removed later this month for the second time and I have both types of HSV and he has only HSVl? I have a compromised immune system due to the use of Prednisone which is a steroid. That obviously makes me more susceptible to being infected with a having a marker of >5.0 correct. At least that is the was I understood it from my physician.
Avatar f tn I'm getting tested again for the last 4 months because I'm afraid the last test back in December was to early to detect a positive and now I'm freaking out if it comes out positive I could have potentially infected 4 men with hiv and all because I wasn't mature enough to use protection!! And even if It comes back negative I still have to do another one after 6 weeks because of the man who slept with the sex workers..
Avatar f tn I am so scared, so terrified we both have HIV, the guys at the HIV forum say its impossible to get HIV from oral sex. Please don't just say get tested as I am too scared. I am absolutely frightened to death that I have infected my partner, guilt is coursing through my veins, I have constant swollen glands, well every other week. I would die happily today if it meant my partner was ok. Could somebody please talk to me, I am so scared and alone and I don't know what yo do.
Avatar m tn It may turn out that you don't have Hep C at all and only the antibodies. In that case you can start having children right away.
Avatar n tn heterosexual contact with someone either known to either have HIV or to be a high risk for having HIV. I find that curious, as no other definition is supplied. I know what it implies to me, just curious what others think about it. 5. Why is cunnilingus a very low or no risk? Perhaps, again, for a couple of reasons: 1. The more highly infectious cervical fluids (think I have that right) are found more deeply in the vagina than would normally be contacted during oral sex.
Avatar m tn I started getting concerned so went to a GUM clinic on 9th April and had tests for Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and HIV. They gave me four tablets to take which they said would help with the UTI and also clear up any Chlamydia, I also went to the doctors who gave me some antibiotics to treat both the eye infection and UTI. This didn't work so on the 21st April I went to the doctors again and they gave me different antibiotics for UTI and drops for my eyes - this cleared things up.
Avatar n tn I would suggest to wear condom next time unless your're really sure she's not HIV positive. I would you also suggest an HIV test 3 months after your unprotected sex and I'm confident you will be negative. It will be better for you and your GF to know your status than not knowing it. I hope this helps stay safe...
Avatar f tn Hi grace I recently got Herpes Simplex Virus 1+2 Antibody Lanel,igg&igm serum test. When the test result came it was a combined test for both hzv1&2 igg. Level of igg was 2.52 which is in the grey zone, I never had an outbreak I feel fine absilutely. The test that I got done did nit mention HSV 1 score neither HSV 2 score. Can this be a false positive? Should I consider a retest. Await your reply.
Avatar m tn I called the csw and asked her if she has hiv and herpes and she says no and she told me to meet up at a clinic but later she refused. if i have hiv can i still have children? althoug through inseminasation ofcourse? any answers would be appreciated thank you very much for reading my long post i just need to get it out of me please some advise would be really appreciated thank you very much.
Avatar m tn You do NOT have HIV...I would take blood from you TODAY for my own children, that's how confident I am.
Avatar f tn There are so many opportunities you're going to miss in life. Other than having to take his medicine every day and having to eat a little healthier and not drink as much, he lives a very normal life style and his viral counts are undetectable. We can have children as long as he's taking his medicine like normal, of course then I have to go through a couple of tests for the baby but nothing major.
Avatar n tn Oh, so now hemophiliacs are all gay? Children born to positive mothers that are infected are also all gay? Your theory just doesn't jive nor is it factual, nor are you political correct.
Avatar m tn Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), AIDS affects nearly seven times more African Americans and three times more Hispanics than whites. How is HIV transmitted? HIV is spread most commonly by having unprotected sex with an infected partner. The virus can enter the body through the lining of the vagina, vulva, penis, rectum, or mouth during sex. HIV also is spread through contact with infected blood.
Avatar f tn What you need to do is fall back on past positive experiences. The same way you beat down the HIV irrational thoughts before. Honestly, you don't even need a test. Should you let this go? Absolutely. You don't need me to tell you that. You have been living with OCD long enough to know that. I'm sure though that at the moment you are feeling that despration...looking for anyway to get closure on this thought. Been stinks.
Avatar m tn I'm waiting on the test results. Do children automatically get tested for HIV or does the parent need to give consent at the hospital? I dated a guy for a year and his daughter had pneumonia twice (once when we started dating and then again when we broke up, both in winter). I figured it was because she spent every other week with her mom, and both her mom and grandma who she lived with were chain smokers in the house.
