Hiv transmission via frottage and rubbing genitals? Especially if female is releasing a lot of vaginal fluids, & tip of the penis also rubbed

Hiv transmission via frottage and rubbing genitals? Especially if female is releasing a lot of vaginal fluids, & tip of the penis also rubbed

Low risk: In general, genital rubbing and frottage would not be a risk factor for HIV transmission. However, exposure to vaginal fluids which can contain and transmit HIV does pose a risk, especially in the presence of "broken genital skin" which may or may not be evident to the naked eye. ...Read more

Hiv (Definition)

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

How prevelent is HIV in usa compared to other countries? How common is it in heterosexuals female to male?

How prevelent is HIV in usa compared to other countries? How common is it in heterosexuals female to male?

Common illness: We do not know the exact numbers because many people remain undiagnosed until end-stage aids occurs, but there are estimated to be 50, 000 new cases each year in the usa with a population of about 3.2 million. In some countries it is far more frequent (particularly in africa). Female to male transmission is less common than in the other direction. ...Read more

Can a person contract HIV from a fleshlight aka "a brand of sex toy designed for penetration which is primarily marketed to heterosexual men"?

Can a person contract HIV from a fleshlight aka "a brand of sex toy designed for penetration which is primarily marketed to heterosexual men"?

No, but...: I wouldn't borrow anyone else's. Use your own.
I suppose it is possible for transmission, but the afflicted person would have to use it just before the uninfected, as the HIV virus does not live long outside the body.

Again, don't chance it. Don't borrow someone else's, and if you get one yourself don't lend it out. Save money and use your hand. At least you know where it's been... ...Read more

Is hiv hard to get? What's the rate of catching hiv from heterosexual intercourse without cum inside with unknown status men?

Is hiv hard to get? What's the rate of catching hiv from heterosexual intercourse without cum inside with unknown status men?

Use protection: The risk is low but real. A majority of infected husbands having unprotected sex do not infect their wives. However, even a low risk is more than you want, especially in an era when a man's not even a gentleman if he doesn't put on a condom without being asked. You're risking pregnancy, other sexually transmitted diseases (herpes is for a lifetime), and unwanted friends. Love wisely. ...Read more

What are the possibilities of a heterosexual man getting HIV from an infected woman?

What are the possibilities of a heterosexual man getting HIV from an infected woman?

Low, but...: If he's using a condom -- and if he has to ask this question, or respects her or his own body, he should be -- extremely low. If he's not, his risk is greater if he's got some ulcers, a hygiene problem, or perhaps if he's uncircumcised. A majority of married couples discordant for the virus do not infect each other even long-term, but why take the risk? It's not worth it. ...Read more

How is the human immunodeficiency virus (hiv) transmitted to heterosexuals?

How is the human immunodeficiency virus (hiv) transmitted to heterosexuals?

Same as heterosex: Hiv is transmitted by the virus present in body secretions deposited onto areas of either mucous membranes (rectal mucosa, oral mucosa or tonsils) where there are receptor sites to which the virus attaches. There are some forms of sexual activity in which individuals are more prone to bleeding, in which case these bleeding sites present a rapid route for viral entry. ...Read more

Unrelated: If your friend has HIV, there is some risk that you may get it. The HIV virus doesn't care if you had an organsm or not. If you are uncertain, get tested. ...Read more

Had intercourse with a healthy Caucasian heterosexual 26 year old man, he came inside of me. He has never used IV drugs, circumcised. Odds of HIV?

Had intercourse with a healthy Caucasian heterosexual 26 year old man, he came inside of me. He has never used IV drugs, circumcised. Odds of HIV?

Nearly zero: The chance a partner like yours has HIV is under 1 in 1000, and unprotected vaginal sex carries an average risk 1 in 1000, if he had HIV. So your risk is no more than 1 in a million, low enough that testing doesn't make much sense. OTOH, all sexually active persons should be tested for HIV from time to time, so consider it if not tested recently. But not because of this particular event. ...Read more

I'm 26 year old heterosexual and I was wondering if cold symptoms are considered as hiv ARS hiv symptoms? I have nasal congestion, minor sore throat.

I'm 26 year old heterosexual and I was wondering if cold symptoms are considered as hiv ARS hiv symptoms? I have nasal congestion, minor sore throat.

Hmmm....: It has to be viewed from the other direction. Because every person on Earth gets cold symptoms, one does not consider cold symptoms a sign of some other, bigger disorder. Likewise, everyone sneezes at least once a week. So, don't think of a weekly sneeze as a sign of a bigger disorder. Worry only if there are unique signs of a bigger disorder, not signs that everybody has. ...Read more

My manhattan doctor told me that hetero HIV is extremely hard to get. After research. I agree. What are other opinions?

I've read that female to. Male HIV transmission is much lower than male to female transmission why is this true?

Skin vs. Mucosa: That's true in the us, mainly because the penis is covered almost entirely with uninfectable skin, whereas the vagina covered with infectable mucous membrane. Things that increase the risk of female to male transmission include genital ulcers or lack of circumcision in the male partner. ...Read more

What are odds of female to male transmission of HIV in protected sex if she infected (status not know)? Lasted 5 min. Came in condom after pulling out

Small, but.....: Chances are small, but of course, never zero. If you are concerned, go to an std clinic or your doctor and get a blood test for HIV in about 6 weeks, then again in 6 months. And remember, be careful out there - - -
btw - good job and using a condom - we wish everyone did! ...Read more

How effective are condoms in preventing HIV male to female transmission? If there is a unknown status and condom use should I worry? Vaginal sex 2x

Quite effective: If used correctly. But nothing is 100% protective and thus the risk for HIV is not zero but likely under single digit percentage-wise. ...Read more

Is it true the the chances of a male getting HIV from a female, even if she was positive, during protected sex is very unlikely?

Is it true the the chances of a male getting HIV from a female, even if she was positive, during protected sex is very unlikely?

HIV with protection: Yes. It is very unlikely to get HIV infection during a sexual encounter when one is wearing a condom and participating as the insertive partner.

Good for you for taking your health seriously. And, good for you for still being with an infected partner. These men and women with HIV do not need to be treated with anything but kindness respect and mates, if the feelings lead you there. ...Read more

Had unprotected sex for a like a minute or less. What are possible HIV risks? From male to female.

Time: The duration of intercourse makes little difference if you are having unprotected sex with someone who has or is at high risk for HIV. Transmission does occur more frequently from male to female than from female to male. If in doubt, get tested since early treatment makes it treatment more effective and hence forth, practice safe sex. Hope this helps. ...Read more

Am I at risk of gaving HIV if I (male) gave 5 min oral sex to a prostitute female who's HIV status is unknown?

Low risk: You're almost certainly not going to catch HIV from this adventure. You have a great chance of catching gonorrhea, and a fair chance of syphilis. Let your physician know if you get a sore throat or an oral ulcer. Life's about choices and I'm glad you found love, in no matter what form. I'm VERY glad you're HIV-aware. Love wisely and carefully. Best wishes. ...Read more

Are the chances to get HIV from female to male same as from male to female? I heard that its very rare to get infected by HIV from a hivpositive women?

Women also pose risk: All people with HIV regardless of their gender can transmit the virus through unprotected sex. While specific sexual activities may vary slightly, any form of unprotected sex with an hiv+ man or woman can lead to a new HIV infection. Hiv is an incurable ; potentially deadly viral infection if not recognized ; treated. Therefore any risk of HIV transmission - no matter how small - is significant. ...Read more

Can take 6 months: For evidence HIV to show. Why? So many variables, only partially understood & most of medicine is empirical: based on observations & assumptions, not Real detailed understandings of Why. As embodied Soul↔Mind↔Brain↔Body creatures, even just the body portion is fantastically complex & beyond accurate detailed understanding.
