Avatar n tn If you believe the people that are dissident to HIV/AIDS then you should know their outcome is going to be death within a very short time if they are positive and it's going to be a horrible death at that.
Avatar f tn "What to believe" should not be such a big problem if you limit your web searching to professional (or professionally moderated) websites, such as those run by health departments, CDC, an academic institutions. Sites run by and for infected people or those at risk sometimes are dominated by people with atypical experiences or high anxiety and can be very misleading.
Avatar f tn I agree with this comment. So many babies are born going through withdrawals, that drug testing is mandatory. And if you've been smoking your whole pregnancy, your baby is more likely to be born low-birth weight and with respiratory issues. Please, if you love this child, tell your doctor what you've been doing. Be an're going to be a mommy now, and you need to stop taking drugs so you can be there for your little one. God Bless.

983954 tn?1280507886 I am scared that the aged blood held bacteria, which may have formed into a type of aids virus. Please give me some advice. Is there any symptoms and should I take this serious and get tested?
Avatar f tn From PA... doctors are not allowed to test a woman for drugs unless they have her consent. They should not be testing her for that at the doctor. That's just a scare tactic. However, if she goes into labor and the hospital feels she may be under the influence of something they can test the baby at birth... for baby's safety.
Avatar f tn I know every hospital in my state does mandatory drug testing, and actually my doctor drug tests at every appointment. They should.

Avatar m tn you should both cover your full std testing bases actually. gonorrhea, chlamydia and trich can be tested for anytime after 1 week after you had other partners last. syphilis after 6 weeks. herpes, hiv and hepatitis after 3 months. it only makes sense to do so so that there aren't any surprises later on as well as should you chose to have other partners again in the future, you need to be able to let them know that you are sexually responsible and share test results with them.
Avatar m tn I would do anything to take this back as the guilt i felt aferwards cannot be described. I am a safe individual and i only have one sexual partner, my girlfriend. I have gone for my routine hiv/aids test and the results have been negative always. I can't stop thinking about it and i keep reading blogs, forums and stats and i have convinced myself that i have hiv/aids. My questions are: 1) what is the minimum window period time to wait before going for an accurate hiv/aids test?
Avatar f tn t remember testing for that with my first pregnancy. Anybody else get tested for this? Is it mandatory now?
