is HIV positive?
Hiv infection is caused by a retrovirus....This retrovirus binds to CD4 cells (for the most part). You may detect the virus by several different methods. An elisa test (enzyme linked immunosorbent assay). You may also detect it by doing a test referred to as a western blot (a gel protein electrophoresis). Thirdly by pcr (polymerase chain reaction) which ...Read more

I had massage, nude body to body. She touch penis with hand after she put finger in my anus. Mby touch vagina with penis. No sex. I'm at risk for HIV?
Depends on details: Realize that "outside the body" can mean: on the surface of my arm, on my steering wheel, in a freezer at the lab, on a bagel, etc... So, there is no answer unless the question defines Where, What acidity (pH), What temperature, What humidity, What lighting (sunlight, amount of UV), etc. From a daily life standpoint, there is no worry about catching HIV on any surfaces that we routinely touch. ...Read more
No: Not even if you get a "happy ending". Blood or semen needs to forced into your own tissues. In fact, massage / noninsertive sex is a great way to get the emotional satisfaction without the risk, and doing this actively / passively / mutually will expand your repertoire and make you a better lover overall. Hoping you eventually find that one special safe person for a lifetime. Best wishes. ...Read more
Many different types: Langerhans cells in skin and mucosa are involved in picking up the virus. The main target are CD4 type t-lymphocyctes and destruction of these cells causes immune deficiency. Macrophages and corresponding glial cells in the brain are also affected. Immune deficiency predisposes many other cells to infections. ...Read more
HIV risk: It does not survive outside of the body. Why do you ask? What is your specific exposure and risk? ...Read more
It varies.: In certain conditions, the virus can survive outside the body for several weeks (such as inside a syringe). Survival depends on which body fluid it is in, volume of the body fluid, concentration of the virus within it, temperature, acidity, and exposure to sunlight and humidity. Hiv transmission has not been reported as a consequence of contact with spillages of blood, semen or other body fluids. ...Read more

Early as 2-4 weeks: People newly infected with HIV can see symptoms of "the worst flu ever" within 2-4 weeks of infection. Fever, sore throat, swollen glands, fatigue, rash, headache, body pains. Not everyone gets sick like this however. Sometimes it can take up to 10 years after infection to have these symptoms. If you are having unprotected sex you should get tested for HIV regularly and use condoms regularly. ...Read more
How long does HIV live outside the body? Does the fluid need to be dry or can it die before it dries?
Can Hiv shown up after twenty years in the body I did oral to another guys of right now I'm feeling ok?
Why does my body feel hot when touched? Its coming 6 and half months past HIV exposure with negative results. But my body feels hot. Please help.
Body Feels Warm: Body warmth can be due to a myriad of causes. Ranging from simple anxiety (causing a high output cardiac state) to low grade fever form an underlying infection. Acute HIV following exposure is unlikely — you're past the "window" period, but it is always wise to retest. If you have access to a physician, you might ask him to do a general work up with some screening blood test. ...Read more
Why isn't there an average time on how long HIV survives outside the body? Is it preference, or is there a chance it can be caught environmentally.
Reality: Let's think. Who's going to do a worthless study like this? We know people aren't getting HIV from fomites. Studies of families with hiv-positive leukemic kids showed it was never transmitted despite family members actually contacting blood. To test infectiousness, you're going to have to inoculate animals with shed blood -- and what's the purpose? All we know is that the bugs die very fast. ...Read more
Hi, I was wondering how long does HIV start to take an effect on a body? Can it start in 3 or 4days? Also, what's the chance of HIV from protected sex?
Generally not: If the virus remains in human materials like blood, semen, or other body secretions that are not subjected to physical changes which kill the virus it can survive, but outside of these it dies very rapidly upon removal from the body. That is why it takes intimate contact for transmission and does not occur casually. ...Read more
HIV infection: blood:
The most common infection with HIV is exposure to the blood of the virus or the genetic parts of the virus that are carried in the white blood cells of the infected person. An uninfected person's immune system sees something foreign and tries to destroy or engulf it to destroy it.
The engulfing of the virus or the infected cell leads to a new infection of the host's cells. ...Read more
Not really: No.Get a more detailed answer ›
HIV: This is complicated. The virus is capable of surviving several hours outside the body, but only inside of living cells. Drying of secretions containing the virus reduces the counts by 99+% quickly. You do not get this virus transmitted in this fashion unless you are sharing needles with somebody or are inadvertently stuck with a needle containing fresh blood. ...Read more
Throughout the body: HIV resides mostly in certain cells active in the immune system. Those cells are located in all organs of the body, but their greatest numbers -- and therefore the main sites where HIV can be found -- are in lymph nodes, spleen, liver, bone marrow, blood, and the lining of the intestines. There also are high concentrations in the genital tract, which helps explain sexual transmission. ...Read more
