Hiv Cause Yellow Semen
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
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
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)?
After having nitrofurantoin I'm observing yellow urine and slight yellowish semen. Is yellowish semen cause of concern?? There are no symptoms btw. Please help
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
HIV: Cdc says that drying of body fluids will reduce the viral load by 99% within several hours. There have been no cases documented to have been transmitted by infected fluids off surfaces. ...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 more
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 more

Can you get HIV if you suck someones neck and they don't wash they're and touch they're next but u dint see semen on it but it taste funny?
Unlikely: Hiv lives and reproduces in blood and other body fluids. The following fluids can contain high levels of hiv: blood, semen, breast milk, vaginal fluids, rectal (anal) mucus. Other body fluids and waste products like feces, nasal fluid, saliva, sweat, tears, urine, or vomit don’t contain enough HIV to infect you, unless they have blood mixed in them and you have significant direct contact with them. ...Read more
So am I going to have HIV or aids I asked my partner about if semen came out and no semen came out thanks get back to me as soon as possible?
I think you: Are asking if you can get HIV by having sex with no semen from your partner. If that is the question the answer is yes. Any time you have unprotected sex you have a risk of contracting HIV even if your partner did not ejaculate inside you. If this fails to address your question, feel free to rephrase your question. ...Read more

Can you get HIV from sitting on wet seat (worst case example if it was HIV semen about 30 seconds exposed in air)? Liquid went inside butt w/clothes
Forgive my surprise: You're almost a grown man and I'm wondering why you'd have a fear like this. You say you sat down where you have reason to believe that an hiv-positive male had just ejaculated, and that the fluid soaked through the back of your trousers and up there? Something else must be troubling you. Your personal physician is your best friend. Be brave, make the phone call now, and had an honest talk. ...Read more
HIV: In certain conditions, the virus can survive outside the body for several weeks. Survival depends on the body fluid, volume of the 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
No such test: No. But it is well known that a HIV infected individual has virus lining the anal or vaginal canals. These viral studies show that these viral levels diminish after the first six months of infection. They do not readily correlate to the blood viral load which us the current standard and reproducible way to monitor HIV infection. ...Read more
Hiv+ semen &/or blood contaminated with coffee (not so hot). Is there a risk that I was infected?
Yes: Unprotected sex with a HIV infected person carries a high risk of exposure. Your risk will even be higher if you have open sores, break in skin, if your part has viremia, not taking his art medications. The semen with blood even poses more risk. See your doctor immediately to be placed on exposure medication prophylaxisi. ...Read more
Can I get the HIV infection if oral sex was given and no semen or other body secretions was involved?
HIV transmission: The risk of HIV transmission is highest with IV blood transfer (i.e.:blood product/shared needle) but as well can be transmitted sexually. Highest sexual risk is male to male or male to female (20x female to male). Lower risk is transmission with deep oral sex, especailly if the recipient has oral lesions or cuts or unknown microabrasions. Even w/o ejaculation there may be some semen spill. ...Read more
