Hiv positive symptoms in men

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv positive symptoms in men

hiv

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 Statistics in UK show that heterosexual infections now form the largest increase percentile wise in new HIV infections, the majority of which , however, are acquired abroad eg Africa or Asia. In North America there is a disproportionate incidence of heterosexual hiv acquisition in the urban Afro-American community. Why this is so I am not sure, as purely basis scientific knowledge , HIV should not have a ethnic minority-specific transmission rate. Its not a gay/black /IV user only disease.

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 Granting he is telling the truth and I am also positive that I am telling the truth, how come he has been tested positive now? I am desperate for an answer.

Avatar m tn m glad you are proactive about hiv. chances you are hiv free - very high chance , in fact, and your symptoms are most likely due to stress, alcohol or something else entirely.

Avatar n tn s partner had HIV, which is very low in heterosexual men and women in most industrialized countries; and test results. You may or may not have thrush (if not professionally diagnosed, you can't tell on your own). In any case, thrush, as well as things that cause similar symptoms, like garden-variety white-coated tongue, often occur in immunologically normal people. As suggested above, whether or not you have such problems makes no difference in assessing the chance you have HIV.

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 t test does not show a symptoms how many months will he know he have HIV? If a person shows a symtoms is it always accompanied with fever and lymph nodes?
Avatar n tn what are the first symptoms in men and when do they show after being infected?Few days, weeks,months?
Avatar f tn I was wondering if you are in fact having acute hiv symptoms and you do have hiv is it possible for the test to show up positive early as 2 weeks or the absoulte soonest 3 months. Can u have symptoms n it show up positive before 3 months or the result may not be accrate before 3 months even tho u may be having symptoms. Thanks.
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 Even so, it is very very rare for a men receiving oral sex to get HIV because HIV levels in the saliva will be too low to infect someone unless she has an open wound in her mouth and you have a cut on your penis. But, that is merely to inform you. The test is conclusive from what I've read after the 3 month period.
Avatar f tn Prior to these three men I was in a monogamous relationship for three months and my partner did not show any signs of genital gonorrhea. As far as I know, I am not exhibiting any symptoms myself.
Avatar n tn How many gay males are there in the US? Of those, how many are HIV-positive? How many IV drug abuser in the US? Of those how many are gay and positive? How many are straight and positive? How many teenagers are in the US, How many are HIV straight and positive? That goes for blacks, latinos, and Asians. Guess you need to visit the local ID clinics and take a look at the "HIV-positive patients.

Avatar n tn You seem to have learned my answers by reading the forum, so you won't be surprised by my replies. (The reason threads stay available is so that people in your situation can learn what they need to know without having to ask their own questions.) The quick reply is that your risk was too low to even have HIV testing, regardless of your symptoms. Interesting to see those statistics on HIV in Scotland; that's less than one third the rate in the US.
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?
Avatar n tn At 4 weeks the figure rises to 90% and by 8 weeks virtually everyone who has HIV will have a positive test. When symptoms are caused by HIV however, antibody tests typically become positive just a few days after symptoms begin because the symptoms of early HIV are due to the interaction of the virus with antibodies. thus, to summarize, this was a low risk exposure with little risk for infection and I am confident that your symptoms do not represent recently acquired HIV.
