How can you Prevent spread of HIV Infection?

HIV can be prevented in many ways, but they are not always followed.



There a three main ways the HIV can be spread:

1. Sexual intercourse

2. Intravenous drugs

3. Blood transfusions (which are very rare now because all blood is tested)

HIV is spreading like wild fire among adolescents because they don't believe it can happen to them.

A small percentage of people who use condoms still get HIV because:

 Misuse of condom

 Use of drugs or alcohol which can impair judgment or proper use

 Using a defective condom. (Always check first)

Dear Sir, My son of 51 years who is a Pediatric Doctor has been tested HIV positive in the month of April 2011. He is Gay [Homosexual] and even though we have informed him several times to use all safety measures but unfortunately it has fallen on deaf ears. Now after my wife has learnt about my son she has become paranoid about the issue and at times she is constantly worried about herself. Even though I have informed her that HIV cannot spread to others except by Sex,Blood Transfusion, etc. but she is constantly worried. She even feels he should leave our home and go to rehab. But at present these facilities are not available in our country Oman. Due to his extreme urge to indulge in sexual activities with same sex puts me at great worry cause he is very secretive and i am sure he does not inform is male partner as every time it is new person. I have spent several hours talking to him but the end result is the same. I would like you to inform me in such cases what can a parent do to stop this HIV transmission to innocent victims. I await to hear from you asap

what about if you get swelling in around the mouth could that be a symptom like the lip? also can you get HIV if you do cocaine not injecting but sharing bills to snort the cocaine?
negrito79 Wednesday, April 08, 2009
Yes there is a chance that you can get HIV from sharing a bill to snort any drug. Because there is a chance that the bill has microscopic amounts of blood on it and the virus can enter through the mucus membrane of your nose.
