Is it possible for an adult to contract HIV through breast milk? I happened to ingest a few drops from a stripper. Now I am worrried if I am infected

Extremely unlikely. The virus is not prevalent in breast milk and it is very difficult to become infected via the oral route. This is because it takes a pretty large amount of the virus gaining access to your bloodstream to become infected. Odds are she doesn't have HIV so i wouldn't fret but there are other stds and the hepatitis c virus is 100's of times more transmissible than HIV - still not likely by that route. Read more...

Those breastfed toddlers who eat little solid food can become iron deficient. Read more...
