Common Questions and Answers about Hiv symptoms female

hiv

936016 tn?1332769204 Many of the questions we answer on this Forum and also the Freedomhealth Sexual Health Forum relate to anxiety about HIV and also possible early HIV symptoms. One of the main problems in relying on HIV symtoms themselves is that they are notoriously vague and almost all the symptoms may in fact be symptoms of a different disease. The best method always of diagnosing HIV is to have a modern HIV test.
Avatar m tn IT WAS A BAD IDEA, I KNOW) I felt completely fine but I sort of feel like I am having symptoms characteristic of acute HIV now... most have past after a couple of days. The symptoms I had are: - Swollen lymph nodes in the back of neck - fever/chills - chest pain - headache - thrush I know I can't get tested but could someone tell me what my risks are? Is there anything else I should look for? What can I do in the mean time?
Avatar m tn Hi there, I am a 25 year old female who is quite worried about hiv risks. I did have unprotected sex in July of 2008 of which he did not ejaculate and this only lasted minutes when I informed him to stop,I also know he had only one previous sex partner whom he used condoms with, also he had been tested previously for HIV and was negative. I was tested for HIV in August and September of 2008 both of which tests were negative.
Avatar m tn do less virginal secretions lower the risk (less virginal fluid=less hiv) and that it takes lots of HIV to transfer? 6. I also heard that HIV needs to go from secretions to blood and does not travel up the urethra? 7. We did kiss open mouth what is the risk? 8. I also went down on her what is the risk? 9. I did have a 6-hour migraine 3 weeks after exposure no other symptoms. 10. It has been 10 weeks since exposure. WHAT ARE MY REAL RISKS, I HAVE HEARD THAT IT IS STILL VERY LOW?
Avatar n tn i had unprotected oral and vaginal sex from a female about 4 months ago, and just recently started having the symptoms of hiv. first it was a chesty cough, then strain like headaches all the time. about a week later i noticed my tongue was white and i had some white sludge on the very back of my tongue that would scrape off. all of these symptoms point toward hiv. i got a test done and it came back negative, i know i sound paranoid but would just like an explanation.
Avatar f tn your "symptoms" are not indicative of hiv infection. sounds like you had protected sex...no reason for her to lie.
Avatar m tn there are no hiv specific symptoms. the same symptoms of early infection are those of numerous, common, everyday illnesses. the only way to know one's status is by testing.
Avatar m tn On day 10 of intercourse the middle of my tongue changed in color and turned into light brown color with a strange taste,i don`t know if it is from smoking as i am a heavy smoker ,anyway on day 13 i developed a flu-like symptoms fever and sore throat without tonsillitis , IS THAT AN HIV SYMPTOMS ? CAN IT HAPPEN THAT EARLY?, please help me as i am really scared.
Avatar m tn This was a consequence of laser treatment for a symptomatic HPV infection a few years ago. I'm not entirely sure if this would represent an increase risk in HIV infection. Had HIV antibody test come back negative today, but again, it's only been 2 weeks. My symptoms have been fatigue, sore throat, chills, muscle pain, and rash on forearms. No fever at this point. Does anyone know if this sounds like ARS? Also, when is the earliest that I can have a pretty reliable HIV test?
Avatar m tn after 2 weeks my last exposure i am having experiencing hiv symptoms acute infection i am having diarrhea and loose 3-4 stools daily watery and yesterday i was having fever 101c i am having skin rashes also and diarrhea not responding to medicines and treatment and i am having pain in my abdomen and stomach ache and mouth ulcers also my exposure was with female when i went to massage salon full naked body massage and she gave me handjob for 15minutes and i put my mouth in her boobs and i touch h
Avatar f tn I am now in my third week and now i sometimes feel cold and tired easily. I started to freak out when i read an article about hiv symptoms. Am i at risk?
556087 tn?1226599014 No it was to early to develope symptoms that early and as you know you can't go by signs or symptoms. If you want to test which you should test at 6-8 weeks post exposure and then do a 3 months conclusive test.
Avatar m tn A month ago i had protected sex with hiv+ female,but dont know if the condom had some leakages. in week 2-3 i have developed the following: 1. mouth sores in my gum for two days. 2. high fever(38c) and persisted headache for 4days 3. swollen lymph nodes in armpit for 3days 4. rash on my wrist which is not painful for 3 days now. 5. very lowed wbc of 2.
Avatar f tn Testing for most STDs at this time will be reliable. If your symptoms were due to HIV, your HIV test would be positive at this time. Otherwise. an HIV test at sometime around 8 weeks or beyond is the most definitive answer to the question of HIV infection. I hope these comments are helpful.
Avatar f tn He is a heterosexual male and had a past life of gambling. This was over a year ago. I have no HIV symptoms accept anxiety over the whole thing and too scared to get tested. The reason why I am writing on here is because I got sick quite frequently after our relationship ended.. Let me lay out my symptoms as I can remember them a year ago.
Avatar m tn The day after I had quite a bad ache in my right shoulder which I just though was recovering from the holiday but my sore throat had gone and my cough seemed to get better yesterday I woke up and both my arms had a real bad ache from my shoulder to my hands which felt stiff and weak my cough seemed to have got worse again and I felt really light headed, I have read up on hiv symptoms and was really worried about this so went into a walk in clinic where the told me I have no infection in my peni
Avatar m tn Only a test can determine if you have hiv. The result will not be determined by how anxious you are or how many symptoms you have misdiagnosed into thinking they are hiv.. You could have taken a duo test for a conclusive result after 4 weeks, so choosing to live with fear all this time made no sense. Any test now will be conclusive, so do that instead of wasting every day, all day, worrying. Your symptoms prove nothing, so no one here pays attention to symptoms.
Avatar m tn Transmission can occur after a single exposure, but it's very rare. In addition, your symptoms really don't sound at all like those of a new HIV infection. A temperature of only 99.6 isn't high enough to suggest HIV, which usually causes rather high temperature (101 or higher). The various skin problems don't suggest HIV at all. They also aren't typical for any STD.
Avatar n tn When persons with these sorts of symptoms have been tested for HIV, fewer than 1% are found to have HIV and those who have HIV have been engaged in behaviors which put them at risk for HIV. You and your BF however have not engaged in such behaviors and can be completely confident that this is not HIV. I hope this explanation is helpful. Your concerns about HIV are not warranted.
Avatar m tn You didn't have a risk so any symptoms you are having are not related to HIV.
Avatar n tn (Howeverr, your symptoms do not particularly suggest HIV to me.) You need a blood test to know and symptoms simply are not helpful. Since your exposure was a month ago, you can get tested now. You wasted your money on the PCR test; a standard blood test (for one tenth the cost) would have been sufficient. Anyway, the chance you got HIV from the encounter you describe was close to zero. Just relax; you're overly stressed about this.
Avatar m tn maybe the Dr or forum memebers might elaborate #1The HIV Ag/Ab is 100% sensitive in detecting HIV infected patients that are not in the window period. Window period varies between 18 days to 6 weeks #2 The negative HIV Ag/Ab result exclides the diagnisis of HIV infection in all patients that do not have history of exposure during the 18 days-6weeks before the test requested.
Avatar m tn And if you are in the US or other industrialized country, the odds are extremely low (probably under 1 in 1,000) that your partner had HIV. Your symptoms sound like a garden variety cold. Acute HIV infection does not cause nasal congestion or other "sinus" symptoms, and it almost always causes fever of 101 or higher. (Feeling "feverish" doesn't count if the temperature isn't elevated.
Avatar m tn Hi Doc On the 5th of Feb 2008 had unprotected sex with HIV positive female (confirmed 30 days after encounter). on the 5th of march I did a rapid test which reflected that i was negative, then still not convinced, i went to have a HIV Duo test9 HIV1 /2 + P24 Antigen) which also showed that i was negative. However since being aware of the possible exposure, i have experienced almost all symptoms i.e. fever, night sweats, diarrhoea and sore throat.
Avatar m tn I'm a 26yr White Male. I'm circumcised. I'm straight. I recently had a one night stand with a 21yr White Female, she's very promiscuous & her HIV status is unknown. We had sex on April 1st 2014. I gave her oral for roughly 8mins then we had protected vaginal sex for about 30-40mins, I took the condom off (unprotected intercourse) for roughly 5mins, so I could finish. I know CDC Risk of transmission is roughly 1-1,000 to 1-10,000 for female to male.
