How Long Does The Hiv Virus Take To Be Detected
How long HIV does live outside the body? If it is a tiny or little more amount of fluid? How long it takes the virus to die in a fluid wet or dry?
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
Up to 10months 4 AB+: Depending on the route and the amount of viral exposure may determine the amnt of time for ab dev. Symptoms can start as early as 2-4wks, can be vague and flu like.

Show up?: Not sure what you mean by "show up". It may be capable of being diagnosed rapidly (within days) if a PCR for viral RNA is done on the baby's blood. Whether it will produce rapid changes in the baby's immune processes is quite variable. Antibody testing should wait for some weeks after baby is borne since they may be carrying the mother's antibodies and the time for clearance is variable. ...Read more
TilL dries few HOUR: Cdc has conducted many studies on HIV concentrations outside the body, when these are dried, the virus is reduced by 90to99% over several hours, these concentrations were much higher than they will be outside lab, making theoretical envorenmental transmission outside the body to zero. ...Read more
How long does the HIV virus survive outside of the body? The tip of my penis/urethra touched the inside of a public toilet and I am worried.
No worries re: HIV: HIV -the virus that causes AIDS is acquired from sexual activity or injection drug use. You cannot get HIV infection from blood outside the body -since once it leaves the body it dies right away. This is obviously a good thing. For some viruses though, like Hepatitis B -they CAN survive outside the body. In India there's some Hep B there. There is a Hep B vaccine you can get. Hope you can be safe. ...Read more
Not long: Viruses are critters which live inside cells and must have nutrients of a cell to remain alive. Most will die rapidly after leaving the body unless retained in body fluids within cells in those fluids. This takes varying times to resolve. As a general rule HIV is not transmittable casually. It needs direct tissue contact. Blood, shared needles, sex, organ transplant. ...Read more

Depends on person: Hiv can be clinically "latent" (present but causing no symptoms) for periods of months to years with some people being infected for up to 8 to 10 years without serious symptoms. This period of time is unique to every person and depends upon other factors such as other illnesses, nutrition, baseline health, age, etc... People with "dormant" disease are still potentially infectious to others. ...Read more
Is it easy to tranmite HIV virus if I am 0.0 not dedectable and how long life quality do I have with HIV I am 26 yrs old male and been under art.
Safe sex needed: Undetectable virus does not necessarily mean zero virus in your body, so exposing anyone to your blood or semen should be avoided. We can not predict how much quality time anyone has to live. Keeping viral load at non detectable levels gives the best chance for a life free from complications of HIV infection ...Read more

Depends: It depends on what you mean by dormant. Blood tests are generally positive within a few weeks of infection, and many people develop temporary symptoms during acute infection. However, after recovery from acute infection, you may have no symptoms for many years. On average, it takes 10 years to progress to aids without treatment. ...Read more
It depends: Let's say someone has unprotected sex and the condom breaks, so they come to urgent care for evaluation. They may be offered HIV medicines to decrease the risk of infection. They also receive an HIV antibody test then, and at 6 wks, 3 months, and 6 months. If they develop symptoms that could be acute hiv, then they have a viral load checked since it can be detected wks to months before antibodies. ...Read more
How long do HIV symptoms begin to surface and show after a person has been infected with the virus.
How long can HIV virus survive on lipsticks? I used a HIV friend's lipstick that she used a month before.
Even if your friend has HIV, there is minimal risk. If you wish to be tested get a HIV nucleic acid test in 6 months, if that is negative it would rule out HIV.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats.

How long can the HIV virus live outside a human body? If the body fluid it is in is dry, would the virus die?

Fragile virus: This virus will die very quickly out of the body. On the other hand, if you are using a sharp implement previously used by somebody with HIV disease (which is not smart), and it has fresh blood on it, this can well transmit HIV if you then cut yourself. This entire scenario is quite improbable. If you get HIV it is from sex or exchange of intimate body fluids like blood through shared needles. ...Read more
