Hiv symptoms in men and women

Common Questions and Answers about Hiv symptoms in men and women


Avatar n tn No. You are not correct. Women and men can manifest symptoms in the same time period. And herpes is not found in blood. It's located in the nerves. Is there any reason not to believe your partner? Just because you are anxious about STDs doesn't mean she's lying to you. The way you worded your message ("she swears to me...") sounds like you projected your anxiety onto her (and maybe not in a good way). Hopefully, you weren't rude or disrespectful to her.
Avatar m tn Over 85% of sexually active women will have HPV infection at some time in their lives. The figure for men is less well studied but similar. In some HPV will cause genital warts, in others it will not cause warts but may lead to changes in PAP smears; if your HPV was detected by PAP smear, the test is doing its job and may have detected an infection which could have been present for some time.
Avatar f tn t effect men more than women. By this I mean that women are more confortable talking about feelings and emotions and probably feel a little safer than men to speak of sexual abuse. Since women tend to speak about their feeling more freely they probably seek professional help more often or work things out quicker by talking to someone they trust.
Avatar m tn In the US, HIV rates are far higher in African Americans than whites (but of course not all AAs), far higher in urban than rural areas, much more common in gay men than heterosexual men and women, and among heterosexuals, much more common in the eastern half of the country and the south than the west and north. Colorado has low rates compared to most states, and Denver has low rates compared to many comparable sized cities, especially among heterosexual men and women.
Avatar m tn The high risk kind is what can lead to cervical cancer, and men can have that and have no signs or symptoms. The low risk kind is what gives you genital warts, and you can also have that and show no symptoms. If you do get symptoms of hpv, they can show within a month or two, or take years to show. About 80% will have HPV in their lifetimes, though most won't know it. Herpes sores typically show up within 2-20 days, but not always.
Avatar m tn As a man having sex with other men, the chance you have HIV is elevated compared with heterosexual men and women. But of course this depends on your sexual history. If your sexual encounter in 10/08 is your only one, with other men, then almost certainly you are not infected. Of course if you have had unprotected anal sex with men, in particular casual partners of unknown HIV status, then you are at substantial risk.
Avatar f tn reported observations on some differences between women and men in response to Lyme disease in a poster at the International Conference on Emerging Infectious Diseases. The short story: Women with Lyme disease display more clinical symptoms than do men with the disease and also are less likely to seroconvert following treatment, according to findings from a prospective cohort study involving 77 patients.
Avatar m tn m just wondering what if the virus is more infectious in men (gay) than the women because saliva and hormones of men are different from women?
Avatar m tn Don't do it and you won't be putting yourself at risk.
7736596 tn?1393779498 Glad I found this website that is so informative without being useless. So, I am a 25 year old bi-sexual guy from India. I've had several sexual encounters with both men and women, mostly men & protected. But let's just consider the possibility that I may have gone unprotected. November of 2013, I was screened medically for Dubai residency for any infectious diseases and thankfully I was free from any of them. I came to India soon after that.
Avatar m tn Jon gave you great advice. It's very true that women can have different symptoms then men. We're all so different. I did not have the common symptoms, but, I did have a lot of what I thought were stomach issues. I was also very tired all the time. You are young at 42 but you do need to find a way to get checked out. My sister had her heart attack at 45. It's better to know what's going on. It could be stress and stomach issues or it could be heart related.
Avatar f tn A problem is, testosterone varies a whole lot in both men and women, by the day, hour, week, etc. and even more in women than men, so the only true way to know if you had abnormally low levels would have been to test you a lot, not just twice. You did have the same levels twice, so it might be a problem. A question would be, how's your sexual desire? How's your stamina? How's your ability to build muscle? How's your energy levels?
Avatar m tn Hepatitis B is much too low risk to warrant testing on account of this exposure. When transmitted sexually, it entirely by unprotected vaginal or anal intercourse. Although an STD in many ways, most STD clinics never test for it except in men who have sex with men and injection drug users; it's too rare in everyone else to make it worthwhile. That said, it's a good idea for everyone -- regardless of sexual activity risks -- to be immunized against hepatitis B.
Avatar n tn there are specific recommendations for specific groups such as women or persons with HIV and for specific diseases (chlamydia in particular) but heterosexual men are not the subject of such recommendations. Thus, ultimately the decision about your risk and when and whether or not to test will be up to you. The encounter you describe is low risk.
Avatar m tn I have many doubts after reading some of the online blogs and information about HIV. 14 months back I had sex with a women without protection. I asked her before involving that are you DD free. She said I am and asked me whether I was, and requested to pull off at climax so she do not want fluids in her. I was positive on that and we went for it. Later I meet her twice, but did little.
Avatar m tn I was with a women just the other day and had unprotected oral sex after 2 days of meeting her. I have a funny feeling in throat and also when swallowing. Other than that I feel fine and also I have been under tremendous stress lately as I am unemployed. Not sure if this is somewhat psychological but the timing is quite coincidental. The women I was with had not had sex for 6 months and I had asked her prior to activity if she has anything and she replied no.
Avatar f tn that is an internal problem with the woman in my opinion. There are women driven by attention and yes, they'll cheat because their insecurity and need for this attention will cause them to act on impulse. But I would say that most women don't 'hate their husbands because they don't tell them they look pretty in an outfit". Nope, don't believe that.

Avatar n tn You do need to follow up with your doc on this. It could be mono, or any one of a variety of viruses. Its not HIV. It doesn't matter if she's slept with an army of men. Most people are HIV negative, and its harder for men to get it from women than the other way around. Your odds are very low here for HIV. But see your doctor.
Avatar m tn Uti's are common in women, but not so much in men. Only about 3% of all men worldwide get UTI's. You are part of that group. Hopefully antibiotics will clear it up and you'll not have to worry about it again.
