Avatar m tn Basically what I'm asking can Acute HIV symptoms appear after the 2 to 4 week period? Sex n feb symptoms in may basically.
Avatar n tn 6-8 weeks post exposure will give you a good indication of your status...3 months will give you a conclusive result. symptoms mean nothing when diagnosing hiv...only a test will tell one's status.
Avatar m tn A week later I notice the most disturbing of my symptoms. Symptom#2 -exfoliative chelitis. This is an HIV forum and I'm sure people are still scratching thier heads wondering what this is. This is an autoimmune disorder where your lips produce skin at a faster rate than your own body can keep up with causing dead skin to pile up and peel off. This can leave your lips lookin very dry and unnatural. At this point I am freaking out. I can't get through work without alchohol and chapstick.
480448 tn?1426952138 I am very honored to be a regular contributor on the HIV Prevention Forum here at MH. The forum is very busy, and we often get the same inquiries over and over. I figured that putting together a journal entry covering the most popular topics, and just laying out the facts may be helpful. I also invite Lizzie Lou and Teak to share their thoughts, and to cover anything I may have missed.
Avatar m tn for 11 months I did a test HIV RNA PCR. All negative. in the laboratory and on the forums say that it is not HIV, ischte problems elsewhere. I posetli many doctors - none of them can understand that so kills my immunity. presumably stress. but the stress I had only one month, now I'm used to this state.

Avatar m tn , leas to HIV infection You can take my word for it or you can adddress this more directly by getting tested for HIV. If you had acquired HIV back in January. and were capable to transmitting infection, your test would be positive an I am confient that yours would not be. As for your GF's swollen lymph node, the lymph node swelling of HIV is generalized, not localized as hers is. Furthermore, your GF has a good alternate explanation for her accipital node- her hair dye.
Avatar f tn I cheated on my girlfriend 29 days ago at a adult video store. I gave a guy oral sex. At the time I had a canker sore in my mouth.i was dumb I didn't think.about two weeks ago I developed a stomach flu, that's what the emergency room said it was. It went away kind of in five days.about 3 days ago I started getting nasal congestion while sleeping, someone within the last 3weekd iv developed extremly dry moth while sleeping. I think I got a sore throat from from the nasal drip.
Avatar m tn Did not know that. That would explain the Prevention or Living With only forums. Sorry for the violation.
Avatar f tn You were never at a risk for HIV contraction and any symptoms that you can come across can't be associated with HIV because you were never exposed. 2. Genes and hormones sometimes play a role in Sebhoric dermatitis, this condition that has several triggers, including anxiety and fear. You might have already had Seb Derm, something is just triggering it. Please find ways to consume vitamin D. You should see a dermatologist for a correct diagnosis. This certainly is not related to HIV.
Avatar f tn If you were tested for HIV in 1996, 2003 and donated blood in 2004, 2005 and 2006 (which IS tested for HIV and if it had been postitive, you would have been notified) then you were tested this past Tuesday which would cover the time between 2006 and now, I say you could be pretty darn sure you're HIV- I will assume you trust your husband 100% or you use condoms? That's a tough question to ask and I mean no disrespect, but reality dictates that it gets put out there.
Avatar m tn Because of problems with the contamination of viral antigens with the cell culture proteins required to isolate the HIV antigens, the specificity was reduced to around 95%.[2] The second-generation EIAs utilized HIV recombinant Escherichia coli –derived HIV antigens. This resulted in a reduction of the window period for detecting early HIV infection from 56 to 42 days.
Avatar f tn I really appreciate and admire the fact there's individuals providing information to help support peace for others . I've also, worked in hiv/aids outreach in Louisiana where I experienced training on prevention and transmission, "including the symptoms". Definitely sorry for the late response, but I had to go back and re-read everything you've elaborated to me.
Avatar m tn and it gives a spark to anxiety, 2ndly in video by Dr Sean Cummings....1st he says the HIV can be transmitted by oral and then he gives an example of a study that proved contrary to this......So , what I have understood from this explanation is that ...there is considerable difference of opinion in medical community about the oral sex HIV transmission...and that makes tough for the guys like me those are in trouble. I think the guys with ORAL sex exposure are in trouble .........
Avatar m tn FYI-- a great educational video on HIV transmission by Dr. Becky MD. I think this answers most of the questions commonly asked!
Avatar m tn I'm amazed by your post because I myself went through almost the EXACT same experience lately (lap dance from a stripper, over-analyzing "symptoms", fear of giving HIV to my loved ones, etc). Based on personal experience I can tell you 150% that what you're experiencing right now is pure OCD and anxiety related to your fear of HIV. The episode that you are specifying (a lap dance) did not put you at risk for HIV AT ALL.
Avatar m tn Even among people with high risk exposures -- which you did not have, since oral sex almost never transmits HIV -- most people with those symptoms don't have HIV. So mellow out, believe the test results, stop re-asking the same questions, and trust the science. I also don't know "what is going on with [your] body". But it isn't HIV and it is probably nothing serious.
Avatar n tn Having researched the early symptoms of HIV I realize that I may have been infected. I am obviously deeply concerned. Having always been extremely carefully about my gay adventures. I can't believe I let myself and my family down with this reckless encounter.
Avatar n tn Im afraid of these symptoms and i've been thinking it is late stage HIV. Im going to the hospital today btw...Does my symptoms sound anything like hiv? or might it just be IBS or celiac disease or something?
Avatar n tn Excess risk was also observed in comparison to HBV-infected controls (OR(adjusted)=1.80, 95% CI 1.20-1.40) with suggestive excess observed in HCV+/HIV+ cases in comparison to HIV+ controls (OR(unadjusted)=1.82, 95% CI 1.27-2.38). CONCLUSIONS: Our finding of excess DM risk with HCV infection in comparison to non-infected controls is strengthened by consistency of results from both prospective and retrospective studies.
Avatar m tn It lets you know something is wrong. For most people who look at symptoms of HIV, not saying that the worst case scenerio is always true and you are infected, feel like if it looks like a duck and quacks like a duck its well; a duck. I will talk about this more on another forum. On to syptom #3-weight loss. I was at work one day and a coworker of mine asked me did you lose some weight.
Avatar n tn I'm quite sure I am HIV negative, I have just gotten out of a monogamous gay relationship of 2 years, and have started dating a guy who has confessed to me that he is HIV positive. I am trying to inform myself of the risks and what exactly is low-risk behavior. We have shared mutual masturabation and oral sex so far, but I can't seem to find any information of when semen is exposed to the air, or any that agrees lets say.
Avatar m tn i dont know much abt a HIV but i belive virus has to enter in blood but how does i.
Avatar m tn Just after December, maybe the 10th-15th, me and my mother both fell ill with flu like symptoms which could easily be HIV ARS symptoms but then could be anything else for that matter, hers differed from mine, where mine was mostly flu and headache, nauseua and fatigue, hers was coughing, sore throat etc. Both our flu lasted approx 5 days - 1 week and wore off mostly before Christmas.
Avatar n tn what were his symptoms? how long did it take him to seroconvert? Did he have GTongue and tiny red spots?
Avatar f tn The official recommendation via the CDC is 3 months 2 - any negative test is a good thing 3 - no. symptoms or lack of symptoms cannot tell you anything about your HIV status 4. co-infections will not delay the development of antibodies 5.
Avatar m tn My first and last adult video. I had to sleep with three girls in one day. 2 out of the three girls I did not use a condom. The company that put the adult video together, had all the talent get tested (including me.) Everyone was they said. I know I was, for sure. I didn't get to see actual results on a paper, but then again, they didn't see mine either. We all had numbers that we could phone in. I told everyone that they could phone in my numbers, but they all believed me.
Avatar m tn These infections are transmitted by genital skin-to-skin contact, and the condom doesn't protect all your skin. However, getting anything from a protected encounter are pretty slim. None of this is anything I'd overly worry about.
Avatar f tn Hello Doctor - I have experienced long term side effects and toxicity related health problems after taking a course of HIV post exposure prophylaxis (also known as PEP). I took mine in February and was put on Combivir (AZT Zidovudine) and Kaletra to prevent infection after I was exposed to an HIV positive female. Ever since then I have been struggling with health problems that seem to have no explanation.
