Hiv Cause Yellow Semen
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
vaginal fluid containing HIV exposed outside environment when touched tip of penis causes HIV infection?iam getting Mixed answers and confused?
Possibly: Pain in the perineum, the region between the anus and the scrotum, frequency, urgency and slowing of the urinary stream with a possible fever are consistent with acute prostatitis. One may see purulent discharge or yellowish ejaculate in this circumstance. This is uncommon occurring in about 5% of the prostatitis cases. More common is chronic prostatitis which would be without a fever or prostatodynia. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Yellow clumpy vaginal discharge sometimes clear, no odor, no itch, negative for c&s test, wet mount and pap test. What else can cause yellow discharge?
Treat for best guess: Diagnosis of vaginal discharge can be difficult. Yellow color suggests infection. Depending on exact tests done, some infections can be missed, e.g. gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomonas. Talk to your doctor about being retested. If available, include the new DNA test for trich, much more accurate than wet mount. It may be necessary to treat for the best guess, without proof of diagnosis. Good luck! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Positive semen PCR chlamydia. Mainly urethra tip discomfort 24/7. Rx? Is this chronic bacterial prostatitis? Unprotected oral unknown partner. plzhelp
Chronic pelvic pain?: Chlamydia doesn't cause prostatitis, and is rarely acquired by oral sex -- maybe false positive test? Maybe chronic pelvic pain syndrome, or genital anxiety, not true prostatitis. You've been asking repeated questions. Follow your doctor's advice, or see an infectious diseases specialist or urologist. Your situation is too complex for a forum like this; don't expect any further advice. Good luck. ...Read more

If HIV virus won't live more than 1min the how come vaginal fluid having HIV on cloth exposed outside wiped at tip of penis can cause HIV infection?
Wrong assumption!: HIV virus can survive for weeks, outside the body, depending on the composition of the fluid containing the virus and ambient temperature. The infectivity depends on contact with skin that may have abrasions, open sore or other wounds. See this site for more info. http://www.aidsmap.com/Survival-outside-the-body/page/1321278/ ...Read more
What could cause a thick, yellow discharge from vagina with no odor or itching after sex? Tested negative for stds, btw.
Theoretically, yes..: Theoretically, this scenario can induce urethritis by bugs from saliva, but in reality, there has been no specifically designed study to address this concern, and the one-way urine flow will flush the bugs, in case accessed into urethra, out of the urethra with no sufficient time & environment to multiply & set foot there to manifest their diseases. Hence, if any, it is very rare. ...Read more

White cloudy penile discharge. No pain/burning. Urine, std and hiv tests negative. Goes and comes. ?
No. : Anything is possible, but this seems really really unlikely. Maybe one in a million chance. Even when there is direct mucous to mucous membrane contact or a direct puncture with an infected needle, chances are low. This has to be orders of magnitude below that. ...Read more
Does inflammation in epididymis can cause pus cells in semen? I have pus cells in semen 10-15hpf. Had tests, no HIV no STDs only uti. On cipro (ciprofloxacin)?
Normal, not STD/HIV: Yellow urine is normal, with depth of color due mostly to fluid intake. Dark yellow, orange, or brown can indicate liver disease and orher problems. If otherwise healthy, you can make your urine lighter or darker by the amount of fluids you drink. HIV or STDs don't alter urine color. But since your topic tags show STDs are on your mind, see a doctor or clinic for exam and STD testing. Good luck! ...Read more

My boyfriend has hiv, he masturbated his semen on my bleeding wound, can I get HIV from it.Please tell me?
What is the chance of getting HIV from public toilet i didn't get a chance to look for blood semen or vaginal fluids?
None: There is essentially no chance of getting HIV from a toilet. The same goes for most other sexually transmitted diseases. Most viruses and bacteria die very quickly after being left in the open. Once the fluid has dried, there is almost no chance the infectious organism will survive to infect you. ...Read more
Hello, If a hiv positive person used a shower and left any blood or semen on the floor in small amounts and then another person showers that has a ?
No risk, no worry: HIV is not transmitted through the environment. If no sex or shared drug injection equipment with another person, you're not at risk. For example, household members of someone with HIV never catch it even after many years sharing toilets, kitchens, showers, towels, or eating utensils (assuming they are not also sex partners). Don't worry about this. ...Read more
I am hiv+ and undetectable I had oral sex with a guy and my semen mixed with his blood during oral sex how high is the risk of him contracting hiv?
My boyfriend is undetectable with hiv. I am worried I can get it if his blood or semen gets on my open wound. Since he's undetectable what's the risk?
Universal precaution: "Universal precautions" means you should always use precautions with anybody regarding body fluids and pen wound etc. Assuming your BF was HIV+ and now it is not detectable, I would still use Universal precautions, wash hands often, avoid body fluid contacts. Since, assuming he was HIV +, the information is not 100% as to whether he is able to transmit any HIV to others, so always use precaution. ...Read more
Other fluids too: We recommend using "universal precautions" when handling semen, blood or other body fluids from HIV positive individuals. We usually consider HIV to be a std, so for the most part, you need not be overly concerned about contact with saliva, for example. Semen and blood banks screen donors to prevent infecting recipients. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Don't take chances: While HIV is reported as only capable of living hours-days in the environment, some hepatitis viruses and other infectious agents can live much longer--also, you do not want to be the first-case-ever for something. Clean up with commercially available antiviral/antimicrobial cleaner or wipe. ...Read more
Varies: It depends upon physical factors like how rapidly the semen dries, the temperature, where the semen is deposited, etc. This virus seldom survives long outside of the body unless it has a cell carrier. Semen can provide that as long as it remains wet. Once it is completely dry the virus will die. ...Read more
Relax, Don: We know from the old days when HIV wasn't treatable that family members don't infect each other without intimate contact. And dried semen won't infect anyone, nor has anybody gotten sick from "safe sex" in which semen can end up on the skin. Let's practice good housekeeping and car-keeping, especially now that you're a grown man and a Dad -- but don't worry about HIV from this. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
