hiv

Avatar f tn hie please I'd like to know the type of HIV testing they use in Zimbabwe and also its window period
Avatar m tn Well, unfortunately, you had a risk by having unprotected sex with someone who is positive. This doesn't mean you will definitely become infected. You need to test for HIV and be SURE to consistently wear condoms with your wife until you have a conclusively negative HIV test at 3 months post exposure. She also could be at risk for other STDs, so condoms are a MUST!
Avatar f tn A friend in Zimbabwe where i used to work has written to me saying she has lost her voice for 5 months. She has seen several ENT docs and says shes taken every med. She had her tonsils removed 4 years ago after histoplasmosis. Shes HIV+ since birth and 22 years old. Its well controlled with no other immune problems. Any suggestions?
Avatar f tn Am a 24 years old man from Zimbabwe who had an unprotected vaginal sex with a CSW sex 12.3 weeks ago. Did have tested at 3.6 weeks using an Elisa Combo test from one of medical laboratory in the country and the result was non reactive, got tested again at 7, 8, 9 weeks at local VCT using an Alere HIV 1/2 antibody kit all negative, at 10.3 weeks had a DNA PCR test which came negative, at 11.6 weeks got another antibody test which came negative and lastly at 12.
Avatar m tn Hie, I feel awful to say this but l committed one silly mistake when l recently travelled to Zimbabwe in Africa on a UN mission. I have a couple of friends l made in Zimbabwe and we had a night out at a bar and brothel in Harare 3 days ago. I had a couple of drinks and l danced with a prostitute. We went to the back rooms and l started to finger her. I usually bite my nails. I fingered her and then she got a condom and put it on me.
Avatar m tn can the testing method called Pcr detect hiv as early as one week from exposure and how conclussive is it
Avatar f tn Four months ago I received a blow job from a lady I met in a pub in Zimbabwe. I stopped under 1 minute. since then the idea that I caught hiv plays in my mind. I have been reading the internet and the low risk factor makes me calculate the probability of an infection without getting the answer. I had rash on my shoulders after 2 months. A mild cough and pain in my feet which alternate to cold feeling. Tested diabetes and was fine. Scared of facing the job test. Please help.

Avatar m tn So the likelihood a CSW in Tanzania, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Mozambique, etc, etc has HIV is very high. Further, most such persons cannot affort antiviral therapy, so they have high viral loads and likely are highly infectious. There are plenty of exceptions to all these comments, both in industrialized and developing countries. For example, owing to intensive and highly successful education programs in Thailand, the rate of HIV in Thai CSWs is low (much different than 10-15 years ago).
Avatar f tn He was taken out by severe pain about 6 months ago when in his home country of Zimbabwe, he was found to have kidney stones and treated for them. The pain subsided for a while but then reoccurred when back in England. He has been to the doctors who sent him to a urinary tract specialist. They found he had swollen kidneys and liver, his tubes either side of his abdomen were swollen but they could find no obvious cause.
Avatar m tn Welcome to he fohrum. It is a pkeasure to respond to a question from Zimbabwe, ehrer I have had some HIV/STD research projects. Condom-protected sex doesn't merely. Reduce risk of STDs in general and urethritis in particukar. It essentially eliminates all risk of urethritis, including gonorrhea, NGU, and chlamydia. Further, azithromycini would prevent or abort all likely causes. Finally, in the absence of urethral discharge, it is very unlikely you have urethritis.
Avatar f tn Though the currently available fourth generation HIV tests are capable of detecting HIV antibodies with more than 99% accuracy after 6 weeks, CDC's recommended guideline remains 3 months. 6 months is an old story and may be in your country they still follow the old guidelines. PCR is not a screening test because it is used for monitoring and tracking of the virus and the efficacy of the treatment, along with other tests.
Avatar n tn 5 months, and have been with each of these partners from one to three times each. Of these partners, 4 were from South Africa, 1 from Zimbabwe, 1 from France, and one is from Ghana, though all are staying in SA. Many of these men I believe to have frequent safe sex but do not have steady partners. Most encounters included some combination of digital penetration, oral sex, or protected vaginal intercourse.
Avatar f tn One dr i talked to just told me that a severe symptom can be manifest if one is infected by both HIV 1 and 2.And said HIV 2 has no established meds for it.I will hold on for my next test any way -thanks for your help.
Avatar f tn Ladies is there anyone from Africa on this app? I stay in Gambia but I'm from Zimbabwe.
1028452 tn?1537448484 Like whether America should attack Iraq, whether Britain should lift sanction over Zimbabwe, whether to widen African economy, whether Sachin Tendulkar should retire etc. Do you know one thing, my wife NEVER objects to any of these".
Avatar f tn No there is no help that we get to go abroad.how much would the surgery be if it were to be done there? Is it possible that maybe I can send you the CT scans and all the reports we got so you can also give us your opinion?

Avatar n tn There is no debate (among experts) about the HIV risks associated with oral sex. The risk is so low that almost nobody who cares for HIV infected patients has ever had a patient believed to have been infected that way. Among experts, it's a semantic issue about using terms like "no risk" and "very low risk". There is no difference between my or Dr. Hook's use of "low risk" and other experts' "no risk". DR.
