Common Questions and Answers about Hiv symptoms pregnant women


Avatar m tn I'm about 9 weeks pregnant and my doctor called me today to tell me that my HIV test result is neither positive nor negative, but indeterminate (I believe this is the result of a Western Blot). I am concerned, to say the least! I have been with only my husband for about 5 years. Prior to that I had some unprotected encounters. 3 of those encounters were vaginal sex without ejaculation with white, non-IV drug using heterosexual men (these were 6-8 years ago).
Avatar f tn If a man ejaculates into the water, it is highly unlikely that a woman will get pregnant. There are many explanations as to why women cannot get pregnant just by swimming in a pool where sperm may be present. If ejaculation takes place in hot water (like a hot tub or Jacuzzi), or water filled with pool chemicals, bubbles, chlorine, or other substances, sperm would not be able to survive for more than a few seconds. Also, the water in a pool is too cold for sperm to live.

Avatar n tn That recommendation is fairly new, so it is no surprise it wasn't done during your previous pregnancy. But now HIV testing of pregnant women is normal, expected, and nearly universal--just as are syphilis testing and chlamydia testing (which probably were done in your previous pregnancy). The HIV test has nothing to do with whether or nor you believe you were at risk, or whether your doctor believes you are at risk. Every pregnant woman should be tested and most are.
Avatar f tn It also shows more symptoms to hiv women who is pregent like fever etc. Symptoms also shows when yellow fever vaccine is give, hiv positive women reacts to the vacination is it true.
Avatar m tn I highly doubt that you have HIV and your symptoms don't suggest it. It's not a bad idea to take a test however. I recommend staying off the antidepressants, unless you are actually clinically depressed. Your doctor sounds a bit like a drug dealer to me...
256486 tn?1189759433 This question has nothing to do with HIV, and is about women. I really dont want to make you uncomfortable or anything, but there is something I need to know. Can a Women predict (100%) her next period? Is it possible for a women to know that in the next 2 or 3 days she is going to have her period? I know this question is not a good one, but I do need an answer. Do women drink during her period? or Can women drink during her period? Anyways!!! take care... all women..
Avatar m tn Hello, I am writing because over the past 6 weeks I have not been myself, mainly because I am worried I am having ARS symptoms. 6 1/2 weeks ago I have unprotected vaginal sex with a women that said she was clean. Said she gets tested every 6 months, etc, etc. However, I don't trust her for some reason, mainly because of the symptoms I am dwelling upon. Here is the timeline - Had unprotected vagina - 3 days later: My genital area felt like I had icy hot over it.
Avatar n tn The federal law and hospital policy in the U.S. is to ask the pregnant mother to have an HIV test. What pregnant women would say no? I am sure that 99% of women who are pregnant agree to get tested.
Avatar m tn Women can transmit HIV to their babies during pregnancy or birth. Approximately one-quarter to one-third of all untreated pregnant women infected with HIV will pass the infection to their babies. HIV also can be spread to babies through the breast milk of mothers infected with the virus. If the mother takes the drug AZT during pregnancy, she can reduce significantly the chances that her baby will get be infected with HIV.
Avatar m tn You are more likely to get struck by lightening than you are to get HIV. Further more, you are less likely to get HIV from a female partner and even less, less likely with just one sexual partner. Even if you did get HIV, it doesn't mean you will get AIDS and die. Most people today do not die from HIV! Magic Johnson has had it for 22+ years he is alive and well. His pregnant wife did not ever test positive and neither did his baby.
Avatar n tn The issue isn't whether HIV can cause symptoms, but the specificicty of those symptoms. With very few exceptions, every symptom caused by HIV is caused much more frequently by other conditions. Your risk of having HIV doesn't strike me as any higher now than before. You are being irrationally obsessive about this. This will be my only reply; and if you post any more new threads on this issue, they will be deleted without response.
Avatar n tn Itching is not usually a symptom of HIV. Don't get an HIV PCR test; waste of money. Have a standard HIV antibody test 6 weeks after exposure; you don't need to wait 3 months. (See many other threads on this forum; search for "Time to positive HIV test".) Your doctor is wong about herpes; many cases are asymptomatic. But once again, the risk is low after any single exposure, unless you have specific reason to believe your partner is infected.
Avatar n tn Alot of woman can really pick up on the slightest irritation. And there are so many symptoms that women experience that are "consistant" with stds, that scares us even more. While it is important that we dont obsess over all the "what if's" it is essential that we privately take all possibilities into consideration until we get a proper diagnosis. I have seen alot of stupid stupid women out there. But I do believe that you should not overreact unless you have proof.
Avatar m tn How accurate is a HIV test at 9 weeks? And what are the chances the negative result can turn positive at 12/13 weeks? Also at the time of this HIV test I was having "symptoms" of hiv, would I have tested positive at this time?
Avatar n tn The new findings, which are reported in the Journal of Medical Virology, are based on a study of 22 pregnant and 120 non-pregnant women with chronic hepatitis C.In the pregnant group, two women permanently cleared HCV from their blood after delivery and one women temporarily cleared the virus, Dr. Masashi Mizokami, from Nagoya City University Graduate School of Medical Sciences in Japan, and colleagues report.
Avatar m tn The researchers used statistical techniques to focus solely on B12 levels and factor out the role of folic acid, a nutrient known to help prevent pregnant women from birthing babies with neural tube defects. The study authors noted that B12 and folate are jointly linked to several key biochemical reactions, but that a lack of either B12 or folate increased the risk of a neural tube defect.
1024580 tn?1331577721 There are no reported cases worldwide of people becoming HIV positive after fingering a woman with HIV. People are generally very concerrned about the presence of tiny cuts on their fingers or around their finger-nails which they fear may pose an extra risk by being so called open wounds. An open wound is a cut which is freshly made and freshly actively bleeding. This does not mean an old healed paper cut for example. It does have to be 1) fresh and 2) open and bleeding.
Avatar n tn Methadone is given to pregnant mothers,people with advanced HIV and aids,diabtes,cancer,immune disorders,blood red and white cell problems,and many other disorders only to find that methadone has no ill effect on any of these medical problems. When taken as prescribed methadone is probably one of the safest drugs on the planet. I am not saying that it should be taken by anyone for simple pains or addictions but for COMPLICATED pains and addictions.
Avatar n tn I can't add to my previous reassuring replies. But if it helps to hear it again, here goes. Since it is almost impossible that your exposure resulted in HIV, it is equally impossible that your "fever" or other symptoms indicate HIV infection. ARS symptoms always start within 2 weeks. That amount of temperature variation is entirely normal.
Avatar m tn The radiator has been on all day so i guess the room is warm, plus I came in from a very chilly evening and was wearing a jumper and jacket. I have read from the Drs post on the hiv forum that night sweats for hiv or any other disease are always caused by a (high) I was reassured a little by this as I do not have any fever. Right now as I say I am sitting in a cool place, and feel ok/pretty normal.
Avatar n tn My other question is I have been reading that pregnant women get false positives on HIV tests is that true? I go to the doctor soon. Please help. Thanks so much!!!
Avatar f tn that doesnt sound like hiv. however hiv can produce no symptoms. the test will be conclusive.
Avatar f tn Your college blood work would not have included an HIV test, and yes, while it's true that MOST pregnant women are tested, you don't determine your risk by someone else's test.
Avatar f tn Testing is done automatically in all pregnant women (with variation from one state to another, however). As for your symptoms and signs, whenever a person suspects his or her own symptoms have a psychological origin, usually s/he is correct. Anyway, it is wrong that the symptoms of HIV and anxiety are similar. In general, they are not. I am unaware that HIV can cause breast enlargement.
Avatar n tn Tender chest, weight gain (only in the tummy area) mood swings, extremely tired all of the time, pretty much the same symptoms I had the first time I was pregnant. I would even swear the I have felt something that feels like the first few times I felt my last child, you know that butterfly in your stomach kind of feel. I have take to home tests and both were negative. But, I just know that I am pregnant. I can just feel it.
1024580 tn?1331577721 Romero and others, in their article describing an excellent and diligent long term study failed to identify any risk at all in transfer of HIV from an HIV positive to an HIV negative partner through oral sex. In total 19000 episodes of oral sex were documented amongst 135 heterosexual couples over ten years and in 34% of these episodes the HIV positive male ejaculated into the HIV negative females' mouth.
