Avatar n tn If my partner happens to be HIV-positive and has retrograde ejaculation, where he can't ejaculate due to a spinal injury a long time ago (I am unsure of his status, and fairly sure he is negative, but this is a hypothetical question...for he does have reverse ejaculation in real life) and we have unprotected sex, could I catch HIV from him even if his semen goes into his bladder? I haven't heard any answers on this rare situation. I recently had unprotected sex with my partner.
Avatar m tn Well I have good news, you came back negative for Syphilis, Chlamydia, Gonorrhea, and HIV, and your test just shows you've once been exposed in the past to herpes. As long as you're not having any symptoms now, you're fine and have nothing to worry about." I mentioned I did have current symptoms, but he said "You'll be fine." I breathed a sigh of relief, and felt like the weight of the world had been taken off my shoulders.
Avatar n tn Experience shows that it is not uncommon for there to be “skip” metastasis, where a node beyond the sentinel node is positive. It is also possible for an intramammary node to be positive. In any case, the information that is important is the number of lymph nodes that are positive, the size of the tumor and several other factors about the tumor that will be analyzed by pathology. This information, as well as your mother’s health, will help to determine the chemotherapy regimen.
Avatar n tn My first blood test was done about 2 weeks after the initial encounter & I had another one done about 4 months after to confirm. Both came back HSV1 positive & all other STD's negative, including HIV. As I mentioned earlier, I did have a rash/lesions that was clustered in my pubic hair area & the top of my left hand. Although, I never had any rashes directly on my penis itself. My urologist said that it's herpes, but no tests were performed.

Avatar n tn My understanding is that relatively few female commercial sex workers in Amsterdam are HIV positive, and in general they get tested frequently. Second, you couldn't have been infected wearing a condom. Third, even if she were infected and you hadn't used a condom, the risk of transmission was less than one chance in 1000. All together, the chance you acquired HIV during that exposure was astronomically small and it is very unlikely your symptoms are due to HIV.
Avatar f tn while M2M have the highest rate, you cannot count out that some of those mans will also have sex with woman who will have sex with man. And 20 percent of the estimated 1 million HIV-positive Americans are unaware of their status, and this percent maybe growing. So It’s time to admit that HIV is still a major threat in the US. If i had been this aware i wouldnt have even think twice about any risk.
Avatar n tn Oral HPV has no preference oral or vaginal, its equally satisfied to live in either place, it loves mucosa. Testing every biopsy and reporting HPV positive or negative head and neck cancers is now standard requirement teachings hospitals, but its still relatively new.

These are generally people with pre-existing immune disorders such as chemotherapy patients or recent organ transplant recipients who must take immune system-suppressing drugs.

Avatar n tn Maybe they stopped smoking tobacco or pot, didn't drink, didn't over eat or made wiser food choices based on their HCV positive status. What if they exercised..... and monitored their health. What would be the prognosis of this group? WE DON"T KNOW. Lol; is there anyone in that group? ; ) I think that people in boards may be more likely to populate that group. My point is that one has to be careful asserting the outcome.
Avatar m tn In addition to that, it would have had to be with someone who is HIV positive for you to be at risk. Therefore I do not believe that you need to be too concerned as I feel that it is highly unlikely. Obviously every time we have a HIV test, there is always the possibility that the result might be positive, but one has to put oneslef at risk in the first place, and this is not very clear in your case.
Avatar n tn It's another matter entirely if you find out you are not HIV positive. Then you have to be thankfrul that you do not have to pay such a great price. You also need to get some counseling about why you put yourself and your girlfriend at risk. Drunkenness is not an excuse- its just a way to be emotionally and sexually indulgent. If you want to protect your life, her life and both of your futures, you need to go find out what is happening right now.

Or rather, how long can they go without getting so sick they end up going to a hospital and then find out they have HIV? Do you think after 7 years a person would show any signs? A non-healthy person who eats bad, smokes and drinks a lot and doesnt excersise. So they are not in top shape to begin with.
Avatar n tn About the Abbott RealTime HIV-1 Viral Load Test The Abbott RealTime HIV-1 assay, for use on the m2000 system, is among the most sensitive viral load tests available today, with a broad dynamic range, capable of quantitating HIV-1 in plasma down to as few as 40 RNA molecules per milliliter (mL) and up to as many as 10 million molecules per mL.
Avatar n tn I pose the quetsion about HIV. If a perosn has positive HIV antibodies, can they get their RNA undetectable after taking medications. Are they still contagious and will they eventually progress to a worse stage?
Avatar m tn RNA PCR tests are most frequently used for screening blood donations and donor organs for HIV, while DNA PCR tests are used for testing newborn babies born to HIV positive mothers. Both types of test can be used to measure the amount of virus that is present within a person's body (when they will usually be referred to as 'viral load' tests).
Avatar n tn genes encode human leukocyte antigen (HLA), molecules that help regulate the immune response to HIV. In the study, the researchers found that certain patterns of HLA genes predicted a rapid onset of AIDS, while others were associated with slower disease progression. The differential effects of these genes on a patient's prognosis became apparent within three to four years after seroconversion to HIV.
Avatar m tn org that people are most infectious 2-3 months after testing positive. That to them could be seen as early on, since hiv is for a lifetime.
Avatar m tn I was tested for HIV at the beginning of August and the result was positive, viral load 90,000 but a cd4 count of 760. I started treatment on 15 august , taking truvada and stocrin.

Avatar m tn The patient was undergoing a bone marrow transplant to treat his leukemia. He also happened to be HIV positive and so the doctor decided to try something out with his transplant procedure. "SImply swipe up with chemo and radiotherapy all the bad and old infected cells and substitute entirely with a new immune system from a donor naturally resistant to HIV infection. It was difficult to think a so simple operation and to cure quickly sick people with HIV/AIDS?
Avatar n tn The general opinion of 3 doctors (all MD albeit not especially renowned) here in Bombay I spoke with have low expectations of HIV prognosis and one told me that "days are numbered". What is the reason for this? Are the latest treatments not available in India, for whatever price? Also when should treatment ideally be started and what is the average lifespan of a person when treatment is started. What if treatment is started at the last stages, at the onset of AIDS?
Avatar m tn But i went to Ranbaxy Laboratories may be within 3-4 days...that man there told me that if u go through HIV DNA test then it will be effective within 72 hrs and u will get your exact HIV status...and I went through that test....and it came was written in report that HIV DNA not detected....m confused????
Avatar f tn It is true that bottoming with a positive partner is just about the most unsafe sexual exposure for HIV there is. However, HIV test results overrule exposure history, and your negative result at 52 days (7+ weeks) show you weren't infected. If it was a duo test, i.e. for both HIV antibody and p24 antigen, for sure it was conclusive, and so was the 30 day test -- and you don't need a test at 3 months.
