Is mycoplasma pneumonia contagious during the incubation period?

Is mycoplasma pneumonia contagious during the incubation period?

Yes but........: It is difficult to say when the incubation period started. Mycoplasma is commonly diagnosed with a blood test. The problem with the blood test called igm is that the test has too many false positive (i.e. Positive test when the disease is not present or when it has resolved), a new test called pcr is really good but most clinics do not offer it. ...Read more

Pregnant? Period came 32 days after last cycle (late) but is lighter & shorter than usual. Fooled around 23 days prior to "period"

Ovulation: Two things here. You failed to tell us if you fooled around when you were ovulating. This is vital information that every menstruating female should know by heart. And second, bleeding represents not pregnant if it occurs at a time when your normal period should happen. If you have any doubts you can do a pregnancy test, but i would bet given the bleeding that you are not pregnant. ...Read more

After infected by Rabies, during incubation period but prior to brain being infected, having rabies vaccine can help the patient survive?

After infected by Rabies, during incubation period but prior to brain being
 infected, having rabies vaccine can help the patient survive?

Yes: A person infected with rabies will not show ill signs at first. If he doesn't get rabies shots, the virus will travel to his brain. The incubation period from the time of infection until the signs and symptoms show up, is variable (about 3 weeks to 3 months). The last chance to get rabies shots and not die, is uncertain but is some time before any symptoms appear. ...Read more

As far as intercourse, you will know when you had it around that date. ...Read more

Can pep suppress to detect HIV after window period (3 months) if pep is started after 2 months of exposure assuming HIV virus transmitted?

Post exposure: First pep done two months after exposures would not prevent infection. Nor would it prevent HIV antibody production in the infected person. A regular HIV test would be able to pick that up. Hiv RNA testing would be an invalid screening test while on HIV medication. ...Read more
