hiv

Avatar f tn HIV and AIDS aren't caused by two different things. HIV is the human immunodeficiency virus. AIDS is the condition one arrives at after that virus has diminished the immune system to a certain point that the immune system struggles to keep the person fully healthy. The answer to the question: HIV can be transmitted from blood, semen, vaginal secretions, and breast milk. These fluids must come in contact with a mucous membrane, damaged tissue, or direct injection into the blood stream.
557003 tn?1222577226 And these 2 questions are not really important but just out of curiosity, what are those odds for heterosexual women and homosexual male and female? What is the current population of HIV and AIDS infected people in the US and Asia and different countries around the world? There must be a site somewhere that can give you these figures...

Avatar f tn My GYN did a battery of STD tests along with HIV/AIDS testing. They all came back negative. I was encouraged to fast the night before all of the testing, which I did, because they took blood work the same day. Within less than a week I was called in to the office to go over the results of the testing. This is when my GYN told me the STD/HIV/AIDS testing were negative and my blood work showed that I had HSV. That's all I know at this time. I didn't know to ask about HSV1 vs HSV2.

Avatar n tn Norman Hearst, a professor of medicine at the University of California, San Francisco, has spent 20 years researching HIV/AIDS in developing countries. In a 2003 report funded by UNAIDS, he concluded that condoms were effective 90 percent of the time based on an aggregate study of all studies done on condom effectiveness." There are other numbers that are higher or lower.
Avatar n tn When comparing the risk of acquiring HIV, which is greater when comparing unprotected oral vs. protected vaginal intercourse. Many times hooking up with a female leads to unprotected oral in a relationship far before protected vaginal intercourse and may not lead to vaginal intercourse at all. I have read the forum and I see the that the quoted risk for receiving unprotected oral is 1 in 10,000, but you all have never seen a convincing case, does this include giving oral to a woman?
Avatar m tn t put yourself at risk for HIV...as oral sex is not a risk for HIV...ONLY unprotected vaginal or anal sex (sexually speaking).
Avatar m tn Until recently I was very uneducated on the reality of transmission of HIV. Unfortunately I had limited non-scare tactic education on the matter. If Teak, Lizzie, Vance, or anyone who is knowledgable could provide answers or cite where I could research the answers that would be helpful. 1.). What affect if any does Subtype (ex B vs CRF A/E) have on modes/ means of transmission? 2.) Does subtype affect which cells are more likely to be targeted in the event of transmission? 3.
Avatar m tn MY SON HAD UNPROTECTED SEX WITH A PROSTITUTE. HE IS 17 AND HE WAS A VIRGIN...HE IS CIRCUMSISED, DOES NOT DRINK OR USE DRUGS. I AM VERY SCARED AND DEPRESSED THAT HE MIGHT HAVE STI OR HIV. HE HAS BEEN TESTED FOR URINAL YSIS/FECES AFTER SIX DAYS AMD CAME BACK ALL NORMAL, BUT IS NOT CONCLUSIVE BECAUSE IT HAS NOT BEEN LONG ENOUGH. PLEASE IF YOU CAN GIVE ME PIECE OF MIND.
Avatar n tn ) One of the main points we make, which unfortunately many HIV/AIDS websites do not make clear, is that the symptoms of new HIV infection are the same as those with a large number of other health problems, almost all of which are far more common than HIV. Also, such websites list just about any and all symptoms that could possibly be caused by HIV or AIDS.
Avatar n tn If i gave head to a girl what are the odds of contracting the aids virus. I know she was in Chile this summer and had sex there with a Chilean boy. And there's a sex revolution in Chile everyone is having sex. I am worried she might have contracted the virus and maybe me too.
