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 To answer your question, HIV prevalence among gay men is about 10%. By comparison, HIV prevalence among straight men is around 0.1% (both are ballpark figures). It's pretty clear that some lifestyles are riskier than others. It does not mean that HIV is a gay disease. It is not.
Avatar n tn But certainly consistently even in the 363 men, about 30% of them report having sex with HIV-positive partners and we still don't have any infections in this group. I hope this helps anyone who was as worried as I was.

Avatar m tn An epidemic of acute hepatitis C virus (HCV) infection among HIV-positive men who have sex with men is occurring in urban centers in Western Europe and the United States. Early diagnosis and treatment of HCV results in improved sustained virological response rates.
Avatar m tn Romero and others, in their article describing an excellent and diligent long term study failed to identify any risk at all in transfer of HIV from an HIV positive to an HIV negative partner through oral sex. In total 19000 episodes of oral sex were documented amongst 135 heterosexual couples over ten years and in 34% of these episodes the HIV positive male ejaculated into the HIV negative females' mouth. (Romero J et al.
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".
Avatar m tn 8 infections per 1,000 person-years. The infection rate for HIV-positive men was over eight times that of HIV-negative men, at 4.22 per 1,000 person-years compared with 0.50 per 1,000 person-years. After controlling for other factors, including injection drug use and blood transfusions, the investigators found that HIV infection increased the risk of hep C infection 7.56-fold, hep B infection increased the risk 2.

Avatar m tn My husband swore I smelled pregnant before I tested positive. He said it reminded him of how Zi smelled with my daughter.
Avatar m tn Women are much more likely than men to become infected by an HIV positive heterosexual partner, according to a study released in August, 1997. Scientists now believe female-to-male transmission is rare. Women were about eight times more likely than men to become infected by their HIV positive partners. The probability of HIV-positive women infecting their male partners with the virus was found to be significantly low. Here is the link if you wish to read more, http://www.thebody.
Avatar m tn In addition, most syphilis in gay men these days (in the US and western Europe) is in those who already have HIV -- so it is likely that you acquired your syphilis from an HIV positive partner. You absolutely DO need HIV testing. You need to be in the care of a doctor or clinic very experienced in both HIV and syphilis, then follow their advice about which HIV tests to have and when. However, you haven't said anything about the stage and duration of your syphilis: primary? secondary?
