Hiv positive men

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv positive men


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 When I used to do anal sex (men 2 men) bareback with my partner, I ejaculated my semen into his anal and that happened several times. We are both sure that we are not HIV positive and not bleeding either during the sex. So, is that risky to get HIV positive for me and him? Another thing is to say that sometimes when I put my penis into his anal and start throbbing, a yellowish (poop type) fluid comes from his *** and get slippery of my penis. Is that also carry the risks of HIV Positve?
Avatar n tn hi..i had a risky sexual encounter about 4 to 5 years ago. intercourse happened once, oral as well. about a month ago i started getting a slight testicular aching which would shift from left testicle to right. it burned once when i urinated. i took a urine test..and a trace of blood was found in the urinalysis.i was also urintaing frequently. i went to see a urologist. he asked if had any risky sexual contact recently..and i told him i have been sexually inactive for 1 year and a half.
Avatar m tn Fliguy, nothing that you have mentioned in reference to the symptom pattern is specific to HIV. Swollen nodes associated with HIV doesn't occur in ones or twos in a specific part of the body. It's generalized and occurs 2 to 4 weeks post the viral contraction. I would strongly recommend you not to waste $15 since the experts would not tell you any different than "you're in the clear". You've conclusively tested negative beyond the window period and don't need any more test.
Avatar n tn Hello I am freaking out real bad.A guy who I have just found out to be hiv positive gave me a blow job 3 days ago.The terrible thing is that he has gum disease,bad teeth and i assume he had blood in his mouth.He told me all of this himself this morning and said he is not joking and felt it necessary to tell me and has said i will need to do an hiv test as i was more than likely exposed to his blood.He gave the blow job for about 15 minutes but i didnt cum in his mouth.
Avatar f tn pdf Page 11 #4 In an adult, a positive HIV antibody test result means that the person is infected, a person with a negative or inconclusive result may be in the “window for 4 to 6 weeks but occasionally up to 3 months after HIV exposure.
Avatar n tn Second question, my boyfriend recently received a phone call that someone he had been with in the past six months tested positive for HIV. He says he hasn't been with anyone in the past six months and thought it was me, but it wasn't. Is it protocol to have someone who tested pos. to list all their sexual partners or just the ones from the past six months? He thinks she is from at least two years ago.
Avatar m tn ACT was from an HIV + person, that is a blowjob with ejaculation in the mouth of the positive person. Took PEP 12hrs after the act. So receiving means no risk or still slight risk ?
Avatar n tn i cant help but wonder if both our results were wrong, hers at 10 weeks and mine at 6, 13 and 15 weeks. it was hard enough trying to put this out my head but now im even more scared to death. i still have a swollen lymph node in the neck and sometimes i see something white in my troat, but cant tell if its a muscle or what they call trush. please respond anyone!!..this is driving me insane again. how long after your exposure did you test positive for syphilis and negative for hiv Natedov?
Avatar n tn Dear doctor, The IDC specialist informed me (Sep 25) that I had HIV false positive diagnosis, but I find it very hard to believe. Something doesn’t make sense. The reason I asked for my first in 07 HIV test just out of curiosity during my first medical exam in 5 years. Below is the summary of the two tests that been done to me: May 25, 07-> HIV 1 ELISA positive HIV 1 WB indeterminate with gp41 (+-) and gp40 (+-). (+- means a weak band) HIV 2 ELISA/WB negative.
Avatar m tn do these symptoms mean i am hiv positive. i was told to come for a test at 6 weeks, i cant stand the stress from day 1, today is day 22.
Avatar m tn 1) Circumcision is thought to reduce the risk of female to male transmission of HIV by a factor of around 5 to 8 times 2) the reason the risk for males is less is because HIV positive male ejaculate HIV contaminated fluid inside their female partners 3) ejaculation is irrelevant in terms of your risk - it is only of relevance to your partner if you were HIV positive which you say you were not 4) the odds of being struck by lightning are 1 in 10, 000, 000.
Avatar m tn Where did you get that piece of garbage info about seman of 2 men making HIV? What is a q gentleman? And how does that make him not have HIV?
Avatar m tn Hello, In March I had unprotected sex with a female who had received the HPV vaccine months before. Shortly after the encounter, she tested positive for high risk HPV (no warts). Since then, she has submitted to strain typing; the results are not back yet. I have read about male testing for HPV for experimental research.
Avatar m tn I would like to known that how my chances are to get HIV if he is HIV positive? And how many days after this happening I can go check it? Thank you very much for your answer!!

Avatar f tn I know i should of been more responsible and got tested sooner but in the back of my mind I was to scared in case I was HIV positive. So any advice? or what do you think?
Avatar m tn After this, I was unaware of his status, he informed me he was HIV positive. I ensured him I was no worried, as not to upset him, but I anxiety has made me worried as to the levels of exposure he made of put me under. Please can I have advice as to what risk I have been under during this encounter. As mentioned we used a condom (i checked afterwards for any slips/rips of which there were none) and I nor him ejaculated. There was though unprotected oral sex from him to me.
Avatar m tn • a man who does not have HIV receives oral sex (has it done to him) from someone who is HIV positive • a woman receives oral sex (has it done to her) from someone who is HIV positive Dr. Patrick French says: "Providing that you don't have unprotected (without a condom) vaginal or anal sex, it's very unlikely that you'll be at risk of HIV. There's no risk of getting HIV from kissing and touching.
Avatar n tn I was wondering what were my chances of contracting HIV from this person if he was HIV positive (said he was not) and what would be the chances that he had HIV in the demographic of A white..heterosexual male. Although, I have questioned his sexuality. Im so nervous. please help.
Avatar n tn Since the beginning of my illness everything I read regarding the disease, when I stumbled across the stats of men getting it, I read through it. Dx is rare. specially on sub clinical Hypo or Hyper thyroidism in men. I believe this b/c men are less likely to see a doctor when they have symptoms. and if they do go and get Dx'd - most do not have the patience and stay on top of it.
Avatar f tn I am female. have test positive in the past for HPV.... not HIV. I recently had a unprotected sexual encounter where he inserted his penis 2-3 times no more than a minute or so each time. Im so nervous! Now 5 days later I have aches, muscle pain and heavy chest congestion. He is an African American male. He is also the last and only person I had sex with 2 years ago and tested negative for all STDs including HPV. What are my HIV risk?
Avatar f tn Are there people who did not contract HIV after unprotected anal insertive sex with positive men for two times like me? 2. Are there people who did not contract HIV after such sex with a partner with high viral load? 3. Sex may last about 5 to 10 minutes. Can such duration said to be prolonged exposure?
Avatar m tn Has a non-iv drug abusing heterosexual man from North America ever tested positive on this forum? I think there are a few at AIDSmeds has it ever happened at Medhelp?

Avatar n tn By the way, the hiv is negative, syphilis is negative but I am positive for hsv 1. Four weeks after, I experienced fever, coughing, muscle aches, joint pain, sore throat, on and off diarrhea. Now, I am still experiencing the intermittent loose stools. Also, I am having this painful lymph nodes. Could this be sign of HIV? I am very worried. I called the guy I had sex with. He said he is clean. But I don't believe him. I think he is crazy. Please tell me about these symptoms.
