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.
Avatar n tn i tested positive. i guess it's all over now. i know there drug cocktails i can take, but they cost alot and i dont have the money. im poor, black, gay, and now i have HIV. thanks for your support everyone but i guess i have no one to blame but me and me trusting other people.
Avatar m tn since everyone is so afraid that they contracted HIV by doing the wrong thing, I thought it might be a good topic to discuss knowingly involving yourself with someone who is HIV positive and the preventative measures in that situation. As well as dealing with some of the social barriers that may come with it.
Avatar f tn I wouldn't worry about it until you find out you have it. I found in my past relationships it didn't make any difference anyway - I was fortunate and the men I dated were educated and didn't think it was an STD or anything so they were not concerned about being infected themselves.
Avatar f tn About your symptoms, ARS is the first stage of an HIV infection, is the body’s reaction to the infection. Some HIV positive people, but not all of them, reported that around 20 days after their exposure they had fever, sore throat, rash and flu (not cold) like symptoms, all of those came together, or within a few days of difference and lasted for a few weeks. As you see, the same symptoms are present in many other illnesses and not everyone had them, so, we can’t rely on them to diagnose HIV.
Avatar m tn I'm a little confused as to whether the brief sexual encounter you described was with your regular partner (who apparently had cheated) or with someone else -- but I don't think it matters in regard to your STD/HIV risks. First, heterosexually transmitted HIV is less common than you may think.
Avatar m tn GONORRHOEAE not detected RPR (DX) W/REFL TITER AND CONFIRMATORY TESTING non reactive HIV AB, HIV 1/2, EIA, WITH REFLEXES HIV 1/2 EIA AB SCREEN non reactive Questions: 1.- What does it mean being positive in HSV1? what does the "5.00" means? (how bad is it?) 2.- Was it sexually transmitted? 3.- What is the treatment? 4.- Does this affects future relationships? 5.- Should I repeat any of these tests to make sure everything is ok?
Avatar n tn People that are in seronegative/positive relationships use condoms to protect themselves durning anal or vaginal sex. They don't play a game of chance when having sex.
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 n tn I am a very healthy female who always practices safe sex with std free partners. One wk ago, after months of abstinence, I met with male friend known HIV positive with undetectable viral load (last test 1 wk before encounter) & very adherent to therapy. After washing his hands, he fingered my vagina for at least 15 minutes.I was quite lubricated and had no pain although he rubbed 2 fingers quite hard and deep. Then we had penile-vaginal intercourse with condom on.
Avatar n tn hi my name is Hoo I had protected sex with a prostitute in Malaysia she was from Kenya black cute girl,then after sex I didn't carefully look at the condom but it seems alrights but after reminding myself i doubt that and after searching in internet I understand that Kenya is a dangerous country for HIV and it has 6.
Avatar m tn so we decided to meet up in a local public place. 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 n tn I have only had sex/sexual relations in the context of a committed relationship (I have been in three such relationships = have had intercourse/sexual relations with three men; all three are heterosexual, white, from the US). In my last relationship I took a routine STD screening as part of a yearly physical. I have never had any STDs/abnormal paps in the past. To my shock, my ELISA was positive. Luckily my Western blot was negative. This was on May 11. My physician was not concerned.
Avatar n tn I was very happy with the idea of living with him- until his anger rages got more and more frequent. He is also HIV positive. It became a pattern with him that 3 weeks out of a month would be good but one week was bad.. with him getting very angry and raging and it would take him days to get over it. He was a poor communicator,and would keep all his feelings inside until he would erupt like a volcano- and then all of the things I had done wrong recently would be yelled at me.
Avatar n tn Given the overall circumstances, I agree you should be tested for HIV, but I don't expect it to be positive. I believe your PP provider was wrong, and that your "folliculitis" episode was your initial herpes outbreak. While your story makes it highly likely you acquired herpes from one of your casual partnerships, it is possible your regular partner was already infected; and he even could have been the source of your infection.
Avatar n tn I went to my doctor and she did a culture which came back positive for HSV1 and no HSV2 present. At what point can I have a follow-up blood test to confirm that I do have HSV1? Can the blood test also tell if I have HSV1 both genitally and orally? I have a friend with genital HSV2 and she always informs partners if she is going to have intercourse (condom protected) but does not feel obligated to tell them if she participates in oral sex.
Avatar n tn Hi! Recently my boyfriend received his STD results. Everything turned up negative except Herpes Herpes Simplex virus type 1 ( EIA ): 1.4 (<1.0) Herpes Simplex virus type 2 (EIA): 2.6 (<1.0) Is there any chance that his result in HSV 2 can be false positive? I guess that the chance for a false positive is quite low. As I know, the HSV1 in his case is not high enough so that the HSV 2 can be affected by the HSV1 antibodies. Is it necessary to be retested?
Avatar n tn Let us say we have sex always with a condom and then when we are tested together, we find that the guy is positive, how much risk for HIV will that pose? I am very confused now and have started thinking that the sex life is full of risks. I have had a few short relationships wherein we always used a condom, but parted our ways shortly after and were never tested together, so i dont know the partner's status? How worried should i be?
Avatar n tn I go for my HIV test on monday. I always use protection. Not as far as I know slept with anyone positive, but have slept with a lot. Will I probably be fine?
Avatar m tn what is the risk of having acquired HIV? The girl (25 years old) doesn't know if she's HIV positive or negative. She had sex with approximately 15 men before me, I don't know how many times she engaged in unprotected sex. She did tell me all boyfriends during long-term relationships were tested HIV-negative. The last unprotected contact was in early November.
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 n tn Is it possible that I have contacted Hiv? If so, how? I used a condom and it didn't break. I also cannot have Hiv from previus relationships because I tested Hiv negative 9 months ago. Also I am not using drugs and I cannot think of another way that I could contacted Hiv. I read that the Western Blot test is very accurate. If so, why the doctor told me to redo the test?
Avatar n tn about 90% of the time, the test is positive by 4 weeks. All things considered, you don't need to be tested for HIV after such an exposure, unless you have strong reason to believe the woman had HIV. However, all people who are sexually active outside permanent, mutually monogamous relationships should be tested for HIV from time to time, like once a year. So this might be a good time for it, since it's on your mind.
Avatar m tn 2. Can hiv positive father transfer the infection to his child, without ever infecting the mother? Background: About 9 years ago I received unprotected oral sex from two sperate people and about 17 years ago I had unprotected sex. My wife was recently tested negative for STD. I have been married for 9 years now, my wife is the only person I have ever had any sexual relationships with.

1623541 tn?1303523946 Thanks, Joggen for the support and i'm glad there is someone else that thinks TV was something more then TV, it makes me feel like i'm not the only one. I've been reading as much as possible about the chances of catching HIV and i'm starting to feel comfortable enough to not think that I have it, but still in the back of my mind i'm wondering what if... Ive read a few things about how if the girl was infected with HIV I would have a 1 and 1000 chance of getting it. (I'm not liking those odds!).
Avatar n tn I would be surprised to learn you have HSV-2 and flabbergasted if you were to be HIV positive. Don't lose any sleep as you wait to be tested. I hope this helps.
