If a child had HIV and went untreated, how long would it take for the child's HIV to develop into aids?
Treatment: One of the best successes in HIV treatment has been the reduction of maternal transmission to her fetus/newborn. If started and continued throughout the pregnancy, mom's viral load is minimized and transmission to baby can be cut down to 5% or less. C-section delivery is often chosen to avoid babies exposure to maternal blood. ...Read more

Aggressive approach: It has been a standard to screen all pregnant women and start zidovudine therapy if tests positive. Hiv positive pregnant women also receive IV infusion of zidovudine while they are in labor. Elective c-section is preferred. Infants born to them receive 6-week zidovudine therapy as well. No breastfeeding allowed. This approach decreased the perinatal HIV transmission to less than 2 percent. ...Read more

My gf has two children nd she is widow now. She haven't sex fr two years. She wabt a one more child frm me. Wat is the chances of aids if we have sex..
It depends: Have you both been tested for HIV and other stds? If you are both negative, and neither of you have history of hiv, the risk should be fairly low. There is no such thing as no risk, though. If you have sex with someone, there is always the possibility of a sexually transmitted disease of some sort. ...Read more
Can you tell me if I have done unprotected sex with an women with 3 childs. And then with my girl friend. Ll I have HIV aids?
Don't wait!: You're asking a meaningless question. Experts no longer distinguish between having HIV versus AIDS. It's all HIV/AIDS, with "AIDS" the end stage. Nobody should wait for advanced infection (AIDS) to start treatment. Everyone with HIV must be treated, otherwise they will die sooner than necessary. If you have delayed Rx up til now, it's time to move forward. See an HIV specialist soon. Good luck! ...Read more
Less likely if treat: With aggressive management during pregnancy, passing aids to the baby happens much less often. Baby will carry some maternal antibody to aids for upwards of 18 months, but the majority are now born clear of the disease. With infectious disease specialist keeping mom's viral load down, baby is often delivered in a controlled setting & placed on meds until initial testing is clear. ...Read more
Know your partner: You need to know who's going to be the baby's father. Before you become intimate, it's almost the norm nowdays to get and get tested. If he's HIV positive but you're in love, there are medicine that can make you safer. Hopefully you are not planning to trick a man into getting you pregnant, but will wait on this until you truly love one another and he's willing to help bring the child up. ...Read more
Many reasons: There are many technical reasons why it is taking so long to find a cure for AIDS. Vaccines are in development, but HIV hides very well from detection by the immune system. Our current meds can clear HIV from blood, but it hides out in places where the meds can't reach. HIV also damages the immune response so that even if we detect HIV, it cannot clear HIV from the body effectively. ...Read more
Many years: In the days before effective treatment, the average time from infection to an aids diagnosis was 10 years. Some people progressed much faster than that, and some much slower. Everyone should get tested, so that they don't find out they're hiv-infected by getting diagnosed with aids. ...Read more
Because of HAART: Hiv/aids is no longer felt to be a terminal illness if detected early enough and if a person takes highly active antiretroviral therapy, or haart. People with HIV can now live close to a normal lifespan if they take care of themselves and continue haart, which will help to restore their damaged immune system. However, there are still a few people who die from hiv/aids if disease is too advanced. ...Read more
Tough to say!: I would say that while funding is helpful to finding a cure, what we are missing is key piece (s) of understanding of how the virus works and how it hides from our immune system. We need to understand how our own immune system works as well. There is a lot of vaccine research to understand how to stimulate our own immune system to recognize and kill HIV in every infected cell in the body. ...Read more
