hiv

Avatar m tn My question being how come we hear of so many rape victims getting HIV after 1 rape encounter. Is this due to the fact that most rapes are forceful and there would be some wounds in the female (or male) victim? Or is the fact many of the girls are virgins so there is open wounds? I know this seems like a morbid question but I would just like to know after hearing of some transmissions in Libya.
Avatar f tn PCR tests are monitoring tests for people that are known to be HIV positive and to monitor their HIV progression.
Avatar m tn Although I tested negative at nine weeks ,I was looking on this website about hiv symptons and it said white patches was a definitely sign of hiv victims and I have those white patches on the side of my tongue.My doctor told me dont read into those symptons alot.He said being that I tested negative at nine weeks is a good indication that im negative and not to woory myself.
Avatar f tn A few days ago there was a vehicle accident near my work and one of the victims was bleeding on the street. After she was taken away by the ambulance a few other workers we’re trying to clean the blood with a water can and either blood or water mixture sprayed right in my eye. I couldn’t make this up and didn’t think anything of it at first but was just wondering if I had and risk of infection here. The accident happened in a high homeless population.
Avatar m tn There is no evidence that the immune system is weakened through HSV. Absolute nonsense that 90% of HIV positive people have HSV2. There is no link between HSV2 and cervical cancer (unlike HPV).

Avatar m tn Could HIV be transferred by the mix of her precum (a few drops worth) with my ejaculation through my shorts?
Avatar f tn 15 minutes later, I masurbated (only touching th clit). Should I be concerned about HIV transmission?
Avatar n tn A TERRIBLE car accident where both victims have substantial blood loss and require stitches.
Avatar m tn Although I tested negative at nine weeks,I was readind up on symptons about hiv and I know evryone keeps telling to stop reading on the internet,but one of the symptons ive experienced is white patches on the side of tongue are found only in victims with hiv and that has me really worried.My doctor told me evrything about those symptons are not true so dont read into them.He told me that testing negative after two months is a good indication that im negative.
Avatar f tn I scared what if i swallow hiv positive blood that is on the utensils after a hiv + person touches the utensils. Then i will transmit hiv to my baby through breastfeeding 3) i have a 3 year old daughter & a 7mth old baby boy. I am afraid of going out to buy stuff whenever i have a cut on my hand due to my baby scratching me or due to knife when i accidentally cut myself while cutting.

Avatar f tn I do not know if she washed her hands before doing this and I did not see any blood or cuts on the bottom of her finger but I still would like to know if I could have been exposed to HIV if she was positive for it and had a cut on her finger when she touched the bare needle wound that had not healed yet. She did alcohol swab it immediately afterwards before she put the needle in for the third time, which was the second time for the arm in question.
Avatar n tn In my country, quite a few (and I am well aware of that) cheat husbands transferred HIV to their wives who became innocent victims. So sex between the spouses is not a guarantee for a safe sex, unless both are mutually committed and 100% monogamous. Transmission of HIV is only possible via unprotected anal and vaginal sex only, when we talk about its sexual routes exclusively. I haven't heard any case of transmission caused by a non-penetrating fun.
Avatar m tn At this time 4 weeks after your assault, a negative HIV test would be strong (but not quite definitive) evidence that you were not infected with HIV in your assault. A standard HIV antibody test at this time would detect over 90% of recent HIV infections. Repeat testing at 8 weeks after exposure would completely rule out the possibility of infection. I hope this comment is helpful to you.
Avatar m tn maybe these people without the organs would probably die...now they have the organs..and even zo they are hiv positive they are still alive...and if proper follow up is done..they can live a long life...i guess their close relatives would better have them next to them than dead...but its true...info about donors sud be given fully b4 any transplant...
Avatar m tn You had no risk of HIV because you can't get HIV from oral activities. You are so safe that you don't need to test. There is nothing to be anxious about. HIV is instantly inactivated in air and also in saliva which means it is effectively dead so it can't infect from oral activities. It doesn't matter if you and they were actively bleeding or had cuts at the time either because the HIV is effectively dead.
Avatar n tn Those are not any kind of symptoms of HIV. You did put yourself at risk so you should test.
Avatar m tn The clinic I called said a person needs to wait two weeks after exposure for the Chlamydia and Gonorrhea tests, six weeks for Syphilis, and 12 weeks for HIV and Herpes. That lap dance was two Saturdays ago. Last Saturday was the first time my wife and I had intercourse afterwards. Today my wife got a prescription for an antibiotic after phoning her doctor due to having what she thinks is a bladder infection. She found blood in her urine and has a lot of pain urinating.
