hiv

1043834 tn?1269046623 Today I was wondering about how knowledgeable people are about HIV, well It turns out most of the people I know are completely oblivious to the idea. So I went ahead and looked it up on Youtube, turns out there are some stupid people leaving comments on why noty to test yourself for HIV. I was completely infuriated. I mean if knowledge is power this individual was saying that an HIV test could ruin your life. This was that individuals comment: DON'T GET TESTED!

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 f tn Woke up started worrying what if they did that?! Went on YouTube for more info about hiv, bad mistake. Saw a bunch of conspiracy videos about hiv which made my anxiety worse. Then I got naseua, dry mouth, diarrhea, pin and needle pain on my hands. It made me more convinced they infected me. Everything went away except for the tingly in the hands pin and needle pain. I still worry what if they did. My doctor tells me it's anxiety and I should see a therapist.
Avatar f tn Did you look up the statistics for becoming HIV positive? It is really low actually. If a person sticks themselves with a needle of HIV infected blood I think it is something like 1% would become positive. That pretty darn low and that is with a REAL exposure.
Avatar f tn really mr.rain and mr.teak ? Because i watched a video on youtube for a female doctor called HIV top ten testing questions and she said the window period is up to six months ?
Avatar m tn Hi there...so I did read what you put on the HIV prevention forum and the answers you were given. You mentioned that you are taking medication but it isn't working? Who is prescribing the medication -- GP or psychiatrist? Also have you ever been to a psychologist to learn cognitive behavioral therapy?

Avatar m tn i had a hiv pcr test from online site called STD express after 35 days of repeat possible exposure (receiving oral sex) and the result came back negative, i also had another oral rapid test done after 12 weeks of exposure at plan for parenthood which also indicate negative results. Here is my questions. 1. I was sick while i was taking the PCR test, will the sickness from flu influence on the test result? 2.

Avatar m tn I posted in the HIV forum a couple of times and they have basically told me not to worry because I had a no risk situation. But my 8 week test is coming up on friday and im full of fear. Im on exchange right now and have been so worried about this that my work has been declining..I've shut myself of in my room and the fear and depression is eating me alive I dunno what to do. I came on exchange to have adventure relax a bit and hopefully find a girl friend...I know weird reasons eh.
Avatar n tn A lot of people have been writing questions to me about early symptoms of HIV infection. Many of these people do not seem to have any risk for HIV, but may be having some kind of anxiety related to an encounter with a sex worker (or as in the case of question one, a strip club). Most have tested negative for HIV and are beyond the window period. They report a wide array of symptoms, some of them are very severe.
Avatar f tn I need to write this down maybe I will feel better... I had hiv ocd couple of years ago and after taking a test it went away but recently it started come out again, so again i did the test and thought it will go away again. But this time I am convinced I got infected by syringe when they did my test. I did the test in Taiwan and in my head there are all these images how they are using infected needles. So now I don't know how to get this fear out of my head, does anyone have any advice!?
Avatar f tn I can promise you that the oraquick test you took at the office did not give you HIV. HIV does not survive in the air. If it did, we would all have it. HIV survives in a host and in order to even get it the HIV had to get deep into the tissue to even have a chance to thrive. Here is a statistic for you. If you were an EMT and you poked yourself with an HIV tainted needle, you would have less than a 1% chance of seroconverting to HIV positive. It is not an easy virus to get.
Avatar n tn Kissing, including French kissing, is NOT a risk for HIV. Oral sex is NOT a risk for HIV. Human saliva contains bacteria and enzymes that render the virus inactive. (Unable to infect) There has NEVER been a documented case of anyone acquiring HIV from oral sex and you will not be the first. Oral sex DOES put you at risk for other sexually transmitted disease like chlamydia, gonorrhea, syphilis, Hep B, Hep C, herpes, etc.
Avatar m tn Dear Medical Professional, I have been researching online for wet/dry cupping (because I want to get one if safe to do so) and come accross this video on youtube that shows exactly how it is done (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6pzBgU8d-0o&feature=youtube_gdata_player) My concern is repeated skin pricks on minute 1:16 and the cup itself which probably used / shared by other clients.
Avatar n tn Afer 5 weeks i again got runny nose followed by cough.I got tested HIV negative at 5 and 8 weeks (standard antibody testing). It is going to be 3 months now, and i have again got runny nose and fever. 1. Is there a chance of getting HIV from the above encounter? 2. Can the test be negative because of taking immediate medication, so that body couldnot generate enough antibodies even after 8 weeks.
Avatar m tn After finishing the bath and massage in 3-6 hours, I got rush on legs. They were flamed folliculitis as my doctor said. Now I am very worried that I have got a HIV.. Is that possible? Possible to have folliculitis after 2 hours of transmission of HIV? Is it possible that HIV transmit by hard massage? Or my be by a hand job? By a turkish bath they really first peel the skin and then massage. Can folliculitis be a sign of acute hiv infection?
Avatar m tn before my most recent child was born i was convinced i would get meningits, had colon cancer, and funny enough hiv. Anyway this has been all consuming. I continue to think i am experiancing serconversion symptoms ( the cold while leaving vegas, had a rash after working in the yard, general skin problems that i've had for years) I then worry about having given it to my wife and through her to my infant child.
Avatar f tn I am going through the worst anxiety I have ever had in my life. I have had hiv anxiety since I was a teenager. I havent used drugs and havent had many partners. I am about halfway through an unplanned pregnancy. Almost 10 weeks ago, I had an intense feeling come over me that I should test for hiv since I was pregnant. I am in a monogamous relationship but I wanted to be sure I had never contracted it from any of my previous relationships.
Avatar f tn you already asked about your hiv risk on the hiv forum and received answers. return to be seen again if your oral symptoms are continuing. if your regular provider is stumpted, an ENT specialist would be the next step. protected sex is very low risk for any std. unprotected oral is also very low risk in general.
Avatar f tn I am concerned as at that time I had a very sore inner cheek due to a wisdom teeth protruding laterally and soring my cheek badly(very painful, but doubt the presence of any blood as i did not taste it). What are the risk of HIV from this exposure?some videos on youtube and articles say that there is a slight risk from open mouth kissing if there is a mouth sore.
Avatar m tn I have never had sex, used dirty needles, or anything else which people usually get HIV from. I am a very socially isolated person, with few friends. I also suffer from immense social anxiety and paranoia. Over the past year or so I have posted certain opinions and views on various forums whether they be political, religous or social, which some people or groups may find offensive, and if they were to find out who I am or where I live, may want to do me harm.
Avatar m tn It seems everyones concerns are the same. Could I or did I contract HIV? It seems everyone is looking for answers that are not here. Going over and over in your head the situation won't get you anywhere. No one can tell you for sure on this forum or any other forum that you have or don't have HIV. There is only one answer that you will find here and it is the most logical; GET TESTED. If you think you may have HIV or contracted HIV from someone or something, GET TESTED.
Avatar f tn but that doubt and what if's creep in like what do the doc really. I've been watching YouTube videos of HIV pos people, and freaking myself out more, . ( don't do this, or search for pic of HIV related skin conditions you will immediately be on the toilet) but the strength I've witnessed in those videos in them is amaizing.I pray we are both remain negative. Lesson learned.
Avatar m tn I know her most recent tests came back negative but Im afraid she might of caught something maybe a week or two ago and it would be too early for the HIV to show up on any tests . Im soo worried right now , I had this burn mark on the left / back side of my penis shaft and have nooo idea if that area was covered , the doctor examined my burn mark and she told me my risk for catching HIV was low but still reccomends I get tested later .
