Q: 

Aids? Why dont we get rid of them?

A: because most people who know that they are infected with hiv are very careful not to infect others. people who do purposely infect others or who don''t tell their partners that they are infected can be sent away--it''s a serious felony in most places. you wouldn''t lock up or send away every person with malaria just because it''s likely that people around them would be bitten by anaphylis mosquitoes that first bit them and then become infected. we don''t lock up people with TB who are complient with their treatment, only when they refuse to cooperate and then put others at risk are they quarantined. and most people are infected by partners who do not know that they have it anyway, so locking hiv infected people away wouldn''t do much good...


Q: 

About AIDS?

A: AIDS is only contracted from blood to blood contact, so kissing a guy or touching a guy or having sex with a guy wont give you aids. as long as you dont have blood contact, like throught the vagina or penis or you have cuts in your mouth and they bleed. DO NOT listen to the 1st answer..... And hiv spreads DURING the the intercourse....and not necessarily through ejaculation...... u develop micro cuts on your organs(sexual) during it and u might contract it from the pre-ejaculatory secretions(woman) and vaginal secretions(man). As far as the oral thing goes.....if u swallow and if there is any sore or ulcer in your mouth.....or anywhere along ur digestive system.......there are chances of u getting it. Don''t listen...


Q: 

READ THIS EMAIL PLEASE..!

A: I did enjoy replying to your question, it is nice to talk about something other than a rash that everyone thinks is herpes (I may be a medical major, but none of my friends are, therefore I am show a lot of strange stuff). Dental dams have never been popular for that reason, sadly to say that is why condoms are not used. Research show that dental dams are actually used most for gay mouth to anal, I have never had a friend that has used them, even when I for a fact know that they need to.   The CDC is not the greatest organization to use as a reference for your sex life, if you are wanting a real sex life. They would prefer you go into it completely wrapped in bubble wrap. I think people need ?proper? information, correct and realistic. For example, while growing up my mother...

Q: 

casual contact

A: Vicky: Yes, it is true that many people with AIDS have never been tested for hiv infection; this is one of the so-called "arguments" used by people who deny that hiv causes AIDS--they would argue that we cannot say for certain that AIDS is caused by hiv because all the people with AIDS have not been tested for hiv.  However, what they fail to argue against convincingly is that almost 100% of the people with AIDS who *have* been tested for hiv are in fact hiv-positive.  This would be considered conclusive evidence of causality by virtually everyone, including tenth grade biology students. We cannot of course say for certainty...


Q: 

Dose AIDS causes through lips kiss also?

A: AIDS is not usually transmitted with a kiss. It would take bucket loads of saliva to actually be affected by it. Although, if the infected person has open sores in their mouth, it is very possible. AIDS is transmitted through body fluids, breast feeding or child labor, blood, and shared needles. Hope this answers your question! No, not from kissing. But if person X has hiv and person Y uses person X''s razor to shave their legs and person Y cuts themselves shaving, sadly person Y will get hiv. If two people were cut and bleeding and one of them were hiv positive, then the other will get it. Also u can get it through sex to but its not the only way. Also, hiv and AIDS...


Q: 

Can you get STD's from KISSING someone?

A: For hiv No For Herpes yes It is possible to contract hiv/AIDS, herpes, and other fluid-born STDs by kissing if saliva is exchanged. The likelihoood of getting hiv is low because you must have an open wound in your mouth in order for the virus to enter your bloodstream, and your partner also has to have a wound/cut in their mouth to transfer it to you. Again, the likelihood of that happening is low. If your partner is having a herpes outbreak and you kiss, you''re likely to contract it. Make sure the person you''re kissing doesn''t have any blisters. Even so, it is possible to contract oral herpes when the person has no signs of it because...


Q: 

is there hope for me?

A: Gary: The first thing is, do not be disappointed in yourself.  Your behaviour is acceptable for an adult person and you did not ask to contract chlamydia! Second, yes, it is very common for hiv not to be transmitted while other STDS were because the other ones are MUCH more infectious and easier to transmit.  You are correct: The concern is that once you have another STD, hiv can be contracted more easily, but this is not the case in your situation because you didn"t have chlamydia prior to the event. Keep in mind that this was a very very bried encounter and the receptive partner is more at risk than the insertive one.   For your own peace of mind, I would...


Q: 

Is their anything patients can do to control their liver enzymes?

A: Response from Dr. Young Thanks for your kind comments and question. This study and others illustrate the point that in the era of decreasing deaths from AIDS complications among our community, there is an increasing incidence of deaths from other causes. Significant among these are deaths due to liver disease, specifically because of viral hepatitis. In some North American centers, as many as 40% of hiv infected persons are coinfected with hepatitis C; high co-infection rates with hepatitis B are also evident. Both of these chronic viral infections (particularly when co-infected with hiv) are a cause of elevations in liver function tests (and though not directly addressed in your report, I''d suspect a role player here). I''d have to...


Q: 

Am worried.

A: Dear Rick: Peace. The source of your UTI could be many things; developing your symptoms two days after your experience might be coincidence.  I cannot speak to the likelihood of anything outside of hiv - which according to the experience you described seems at worst moderate. Now that you are a little better informed about how hiv and other diseases are transmitted, please follow through with an hiv/STD counselor and a frank discussion about how to reduce risk and protect your health.  I have known many people who resolved "never" to place themselves at risk again, and because of this, did not have with them the knowledge or materials to protect themselves when their resolve failed. I do wish...
