About

HIV virus is transmitted by exchange of body fluids from infected person to the uninfected. Sexual activities can transmit the virus when direct contact occurs between the HIV infected persons body fluid and mucous membranes of another. This spread can be prevented by avoiding these behaviors or by use of preventive condoms. Use of disposable syringes can avoid transmission of the virus by needle.

Routine testing for HIV can prevent transmission through blood transfusions.

What kind of yoga and medicine is abilable in HIV from baba ram dev yog peth

I lost weight from 165 lbs to 160 lbs and maintained at that. I easily get tired. I had a lot of sex with same same. Have I already gotten HIV?

Dear sir i had un protected sex with a female as i was in a party and drunk while have sex i realized that i have no condom and i ejaculated out side please let me what are the chances of geting infected its about a mounth.

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
