Early HIV symptoms: You can't tell difference between influenza (flu) & early HIV symptoms so prevention is best bet. With that said, you can't get HIV by sharing a cigarette so don't sweat it. On the other hand, if you've engaged in other practices (such as unprotected sex) that increase your risk for HIV & other stds, go see your family doc (or planned parenthood or county std clinic) for testing. ...Read more

Are gay men realy more likley to contarct hiv?

Not the key: Receptive unprotected anal intercourse with a HIV-positive partner with an infection that's not well under control is the riskiest sexual practice for HIV transmission, significantly. LGBT covers a huge variety of practices and preferences, and simply having the orientation does not create any risk whatever. Most gay men nowadays "play safe" and are at no more risk than others. ...Read more

I've read that the risk of HIV is higher in gay men. Is that true? If so, why?

Wrong to generalize: Passive, unprotected anal intercourse with a HIV-positive partner is an especially dangerous practice, and nowadays in the US around 50% of new HIV infections are in men who do this. The orientation itself doesn't create the risk, and partnered or safety-focused gay men are not at any special risk. And worldwide, most HIV is transmitted through heterosexual sex. Huge topic. Be fair & informed. ...Read more

Can u get HIV from anal sex but both men don't have HIV

Can u get HIV from anal sex but both men don't have HIV

Think: If both men don't have HIV then no transmission. However as you know there are other STDS and there is a window of time from exposure to HIV to HIV showing up positive in the lab tests. This window can range from 9 days to 3-6 months. So that is why condoms and PrEP is recommended. Learn the facts. Go to CDC PrEP Resources Page. ...Read more

In the case of HIV disease, many gay men have intentionally exposed themselves so as to fit in with the remainder of their local community. Denial is a strong phenomenon. ...Read more
