hiv

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?
Avatar m tn Fast forward to 4 years, I have had NO classical HIV related symptoms until about last year I developed a severe case of tonsilitists. My sister had it first and a couple of days later- I developed severe sore throat, high fever, night sweat and a severely swollen tonsils. Can tonsilitists spread through air?? I was prescribed antibiotics- Augmentin Duo Forte to be precise and I developed a severe case of thrush, white ulcers like at the back of my throat.
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 Howver, if you want to time a test in connection with this event, have a standard HIV antibody test at 6-8 weeks, or a duo test (for both HIV antibody and p24 antigen) at 4 weeks. You can scan or search the forum for innumerable discussions of time to reliably negative HIV test results. Finally, you symptom question also has been addressed repeatedly.
Avatar n tn Those are not any kind of symptoms of HIV. You did put yourself at risk so you should test.
Avatar f tn I also got tested for herpes and other stds the other day too and was negative for HPV and HIV on rapid test. I tested negative for Chlamydia over a year ago, and have only had protected vagina sex once and awhile since then with unprotected oral performed on me.
Avatar m tn what if a person who didn'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 How accurate are HIV tests 25 days after and when one could be showing the symptoms? Since the hiv test and culture came back negative and I am a a smoker, could I have hairy lekopika ( please forgive the misspelling)? I do have ridges along the side of my tongue and have had them since 4 days after? Any help would greatly be appreciated.
Avatar n tn And surely the large majority of those women are commercial sex workers, injection drug users, immigrants from HIV endemic countries, or partners of known HIV infected men. The chance your sex partner had HIV undoubtedly is even lower. To your questions: 1) Your symptoms don't sound like those of HIV. Even if you had classical symptoms of ARS, that probably would not be the cause in the low-risk scenario you describe.
Avatar n tn Dear DR 10.3 weeks ago I was under the influence of a lot of alcohol and ended up at a place where men go to have sexual contact with other men. I ended up falling asleep there and do not remember any thing happening. About 1 week later I developed a coated tongue which seemed to disapear for about 1 to 2 weeks then came back. My tongue is white all over and they do not come of when I try to scrape or brush them. My tongue also burns and I have a dry mouth.
Avatar n tn after 18 months on amiodarone for arrytmia a thyroid test showed a TSH of 38. I am now on my second month of Levo and the usual symptoms persist. would be very grateful if you would post what dosis you take . I am on 150 once a day which is far below what most forum members take. My cardio assures me that it's enough. I'm 80 and feel only half alive . nb. the cardio last week took me off amio for propafenenone becaseu the though 18 months was far too long to take amio.
Avatar m tn Dear doctor , iam 25 year old male ,i had sex with a prostitute before three months,whose hiv status unknown ,during virginal intercourse my condom broke at the top ,i senced and took it out , it was there for a max of two min, know i have symptoms like sore throat for more than a week ,and thick water colour discharge from penis only after erection,tiredness .pls advice me what would be the symptoms ,and what should i do.
Avatar n tn Doctor gave me rocephin injection, and put me on zithromax and diflucan prior to the gonorrhea and chlamydial test. I also had HIV testing, syphilis test, and herpes test.I took the zithromax and diflucan but for a week the the symptoms still continued. 4days later Doctor's office called me that they didn't able to process my gonorrhea and chlamydia test due two samples were put in the same tube and that they had to throw away the whole sample.
Avatar m tn today evening i see dat my toungue has a lot of red spots like small red bumps also have itching at the tip of my penis and very small bumps on the head of penis. I got tested for std/hiv. the std report has come negative, the hiv test result wil come after 2 days. I am very scared. I am taking medicine for stds and fungal infection as of now. the red spots have not gone or reduced.
Avatar m tn If you choose to get tested, at 4 weeks you can get a combination HIV antibody/HIV p24 antigen test which will provide definitive evidence of your assessment status. I anticipate that when you get tested, the test will be negative, providing that you do not have HIV. Finally, a comment on your condom use. Placing a condom on AFTER starting to have sex but before you ejaculate will not prevent STDs or keep your girlfriend from getting pregnant.
Avatar n tn You did NOTHING to jeopardize your negative serostatus nor your wife's, your 'symptoms' have nothing to do with HIV, and you don't need to test over this situation. There is NO MECHANISM by which HIV can be transmitted during protected sex. You simply are one of thousands of people to suffer from HIV Anxiety as a result of guilty feelings over a SAFE encounter.
Avatar m tn Welcome to the HIV forum. I'll try to help. This isn't (or shouldn't be) the "nightmare" you describe. First, your symptoms are meaningless. They don't really suggest HIV, which doesn't cause "a little higher temperature" without fever; it sounds like you caught a cold.
Avatar m tn i've been to a brothel back in malaysia, choosed a chinese national "pros". she told me it was her first day of work, but im not pretty sure whether it is or not, or whether have she been in this industry even back in her country. i had an unprotected oral sex and protected vaginal intercourse " though im not too sure whether did the condom broke because after the intercouse it seems its still intact and the tip without any leakage or so..
Avatar m tn It is apparent that you have read our comments on this site in the past That makes your concern surprising to me. As we've pointed our numerous times in the past, the symptoms of the ARS are TOTALLY non-specific and when people experience "ARS symptoms" they are much more likely to have something else, usually some other, more typical virus infection.
Avatar n tn Well hes not exactly absurd for worrying about HIV, most HIV symptoms are Flu-like symptoms such as sore throat, sore muscles, fever, etc. I would be worrying too if those symptoms showed up after sex. Definately get tested.
Avatar n tn Where on earth did you get the idea that HIV causes such a thing? NO MATTER WHAT YOUR SYMPTOMS ARE, YOUR TEST RESULTS PROVE THAT HIV IS NOT THE CAUSE. I guess most or all these comments were posted before my reply above. But I meant what I said there: no more comments or questions, please. This thread is over. Take it to the HIV support forum if you want to continue getting feedback from others. But truly, your continued focus on HIV is irrational and unnecessary.
Avatar m tn Doctor, Thank you in advance for taking the time to repsond my story, it is most appreciated! Not that my story is different from alot of the other stories I have read in the forum, yes, I have had unprotected hetersexual intercourse (male to female) and I'm terrified that I have contracted HIV. It was a one night stand while travelling for work in Indiana, we had oral sex once and intercourse twice in one evening.
Avatar m tn I received two blow jobs from two different men who say they where clean but who knows the last was on April 5th, I have noticed no key symptoms like sores or rashes besides being a little sore and tense and today I noticed little red bumps on my forearm what I want to know would it be worth a test for HIV from this exposure , I know insertive oral is considered no risk but should I still get a test such as an oraquick now these are the only two people I had contact with besides my regular part

Avatar f tn Dear Experts, Generally speaking, if someone starts to show HIV symptoms (flu like, aches, lymph nodes etc) at three or four weeks post encounter then his/her test should.come out positive even before the period of 3months ???
Avatar m tn It is very unlikely your partner has HIV or, even if she does, that you caught it. First, HIV is rare in women and heterosexal men in most industrialized countries, except in a few groups like injection drug users. Second, what you were "led to believe" is wrong; HIV is a rare cause of the symptoms you describe in your partner. They are much more typical for a garden vareity virus or strep throat, or even mono, than HIV.
Avatar n tn In the US, there are an estimated 40,000 new HIV cases per year. Most of those (roughly 75%, I believe) are men who have sex with other men. So maybe there are 10,000 new cases per year in heterosexuals. The large majority of those are the REGULAR sex partners (mostly women) of men who are at obvious high risk, such as injection drug users or men who have had sex with other men, including men who don't consider themselves gay or bi--e.g.
