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

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 likely is to have hiv from being a virgin involved in sexual behaviors as outercourse, genital rubbing? Asking abt hiv only

Depends: It depends on whether there is blood to blood transmission correlated to the intensity and duration of the rubbing. It is less likely than actual sexual intercourse and more than doing nothing. The risk overall is likely not high but not zero. ...Read more

What are the percentages of catching hiv/aids from oral sex and rubbing genitals?

Low: Rubbing's not a risk, but you can catch herpes that way. Oral sex is unlikely to transmit HIV -- it's so low that nobody seems to be able to give a percentage, even assuming there's a large number of infectious particles in the secretions -- but it's possible and it can give you herpes, syphilis and/or gonorrhea. Why not be safe? ...Read more

Odds of catching HIV from genital rubbing in a 1 time encounter? Had swollen lymph node 2 months after. I almost entered her but not fully wats r odds

Near zero: This kind of contact is very unlikely to transmit hiv. Husbands of infected wives, during the old days before effective treatment, seldom turned positive even after years of unprotected sex. I am glad you asked. If you care for one another, it would be a good thing to both get tested. ...Read more

Five years back I had an experience of rubbing penis with clothes to anus of someone (not in but might touch pink area)genital warts now HIV can be?

HIV: This is not how HIV disease is transmitted. You must have intimate contact, either sexually (and this can include vaginal, anal and oral sex), or by blood or tissue transfer. Being tested for HIV is an excellent idea for anybody who has ever had unprotected sex and you might want to do this. Better safe than sorry. ...Read more

It is known that HIV spreads from genital fluids. So why no test is done taking semen as a subject. HIV is definitely present in the semen.

Blood easier: Most of the tests are based on detecting antibodies to HIV, not HIV per se. Antibodies are present in blood and blood is easier to collect than semen. Finally women can not provide semen. ...Read more

Be careful and practice safe sex. ...Read more

How does having genital herpes increase chances of HIV?

A couple ways: First, the behaviors that put people at risk for STIs increase the risk for both HIV and HSV (herpes simplex). If you have sex with them you may be exposed to both infections. Second, if you have an open sore from herpes it makes it more likely that if you get exposed to HIV it will be able to infect you through the open sore. ...Read more

If the symptoms of genital herpes and HIV are the same, is there a way to tell the difference? Besides testing...

Misinformation: I'm really sorry that somebody told you this total untruth. Genital herpes is groups of painful blisters. HIV is a systemic disease that in the acute phase is often the worst 'flu you've ever had. Further, if you have any concern that you have contracted HIV, you owe it to yourself and all those who love you in any way to get yourself tested. Herpes labs are less reliable. Do the right thing. ...Read more

Is genital herpes cureable? How long will it take? My HIV test was found negative.

Unfortunately,: "herpes is forever" is all too true. On a brighter note, it can be successfully suppressed with anti-viral drugs, either with each flare, if infrequent, or with long-term suppression. Since herpes lesions compromise the integrity of skin/mucous membranes, it puts you at greater risk for acquiring hiv. Thus, always use protection & practice safe sex. See pcp for rx for anti-viral meds. ...Read more

Not Necessarily.: It means you have a sexually transmitted disease. HIV is also a sexually transmitted disease. It means you were exposed to a patient that had sexual intercourse with the HPV virus. Which means you are at risk for other STDs. You should go to your doctor or an STD clinic to check you for other possible STDs. ...Read more

If a HIV man positive he transfer genital herpes to a negative women is that means she get HIV too even if they have safe sex?

No: Herpes & HIV are two different viral infections. Passing one does not mean you will pass the other. However, there is definitely a real possibility of passing both. To reduce the risk, the HIV + person should be on anti-retrovirals & protease inhibitors. The person should also always watch for herpes lesions & be on treatment if any occur. They should also practice safe sex esp with lesions. ...Read more

Same partner 3 years, both faithful, and I randomly got 1st hsv1 genital outbreak- is this normal or do I need to worry that I have HIV or something?

Same partner 3 years, both faithful, and I randomly got 1st hsv1 genital outbreak- is this normal or do I need to worry that I have HIV or something?

Get tested: HSV often recurs, like cold sores on the mouth. However, to allay your concern you should get tested for HIV. You may buy a kit for at home testing.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more
