Possible to have contracted HIV from risky encounter 4 years ago given .13 neg AB and RNA tests. Current CD4 count 1,600 CD4/8 ratio 2.6.. wbc 16,000?

Nope, not possible: The HIV blood tests are among the most accurate diagnostic tests ever developed, for any medical condition. It is impossible to have HIV with antibody and RNA testing both negative more than a few weeks after the last possible exposure. ...Read more

Not Enough Current!: Yes..if you are a flea.But to get from your skin through your skull past the cerebrospinal fluid deep into your brain would take a lot more than a little static spark.Of course then there's the topic of 'human spontaneous combustion.'but I'll leave you and Google for that.Now, static can screw-up other things,like electrical circuits, and some fine machinery,or the Hindenburg or a gas tank(BOOM!) ...Read more

Hiv Tests 12, last ones -4 mon hiv rna, 5 mon hiv Ab (3rd gen), 6 mon hiv combo -all neg--condom slipped, some symps, decided to forget hiv, can i?

A qualified YES.: If ,6 months and 12 tests later, you're wondering if you should stop worrying, then, clearly, you were REALLY worried. Yes, you dodged a bullet, but now you need to step out of the line of fire. Focus on safe sex, always use a condom, choose your partner(s) wisely and avoid situations to lead you to risky behavior. You shouldn't "forget "HIV but you can limit your exposure & your worries. ...Read more

Sis s pregnant.hsv1 IgG -ve,igm +ve.primary infection.doc diag hsv1 in lips not genital.does IgM cross placenta?is der any chance to hve healthybaby?

Yes & possible: Herpes simplex can affect the fetus, especially if it's contracted during the third trimester Since you sis's IgM was positive but IgG negative, it suggests she recently acquired the virus. She is very close to the third trimester. Treatment with Valtrex (valacyclovir) is pretty safe by 21 weeks and may reduce the chance of transmission of the virus to her baby. It should be considered. ...Read more

I recieved 1 childhood varcella vaccine. But my labs show (-) VZV IgG = non immune. How is this possible as isn't vaccination previous exposure?

I recieved 1 childhood varcella vaccine. But my labs show (-) VZV IgG = non immune.  How is this possible as isn't vaccination previous exposure?

Not always effective: The varicella vaccine was approved initially as 1 dose in early childhood (>1 but <13) and 2 dose to teens or above. It is now suggested only as a 2 dose series, since about 15% will not develop long term antibodies with a single dose. Even with 2 doses, likely 5% will not. Natural varicella gives long term antibodies but no vaccine is perfect. ...Read more

Research paper on stds: could someone with herpes 2 give someone herpes type 1?

No: If someone has only hsv2 then they can certainly spread that virus. You cannot spread something you do not have. The same would be said about someone with only hsv1. That person could spread hsv1 through close contact. ...Read more

Have wrong info.  Herpes 1 IgG positive. Herpes II IgG indeterminate.  How is herpes 1 transmitted via flu or cold sores stress?

Herpes simplex: Herpes simplex is transmitted by direct contact with a lesion or the body fluid of an infected individual.Transmission may also occur through skin-to-skin or mucous membrane contact during periods of asymptomatic shedding. Barrier protection methods are the most reliable method of preventing transmission of herpes, but they merely reduce rather than eliminate risk. ...Read more

Can someone with genital herpes have a western blot when there's no outbreak?ive had hsv1 on mouth many times,blood test said  hsv2 1.25 & hsv1 5.0

I did a DNA PCR test for HSV & i got the result: -humanes herpesvirus-dna ((typ 7, pcr) (eb) : negative limit of detection:100 copies/ml.So i'm clean?

Hsv-7 isn't detected: Your question will require some clarification since you stated being tested for herpes simplex virus, the result you describe tests for human herpesvirus type7, which cannot be detected by pcr testing below 100 copies per ml . Hhv-7 is not the same as hsv. Though theyboth belong to the same heresviridae family. ...Read more

Statistically, Is there anyone infected with HIV by Masturbation?

Absolutely not: Your question concerns me very much. Enjoying your body is normal and harmless. It's something a young man needs to do in order to stay comfortable and able to focus, and to prepare him for adult roles. It cannot possibly give you HIV. You list yourself as having "HIV" and "AIDS"; if you are truly infected and this is not just a terrible fear, you got it in some other way. ...Read more

Wb-band 41 positive, dfm showed spirochetes and gemmas.Syphilis-negative.Can it be Lyme with only band 41 positive?Got inactive demyelination lessions

Wb-band 41 positive, dfm showed spirochetes and gemmas.Syphilis-negative.Can it be Lyme with only band 41 positive?Got inactive demyelination lessions

Possibly- more tests: A 41 band alone could signify lyme but is not enough to make the diagnosis. Unfortunately most labs don't do an adequate WB test- it's crucial to test the highly specific 31 & 34 bands & most labs don't. Ignenex does the best test.
