Q: 

How come u cant contract hiv from sharing a razor, but u can by sharing needles......?

A: Not being a smart *** but the same reason you can''t get hiv from just touching someone with hiv.. has to enter the blood stream.. I am not sure where you obtained your information; but, you can contract hiv from sharing a razor. Precisely, it is the exact same as sharing a needle. If someone whom has hiv, the virus that causes AIDS, and you use a razor that has been infected with an open wound, which could be caused by the razor or already is present, you can contract the virus through your and the infected person''s blood. because needles go into your skin which reaches the blood. hiv is found in the blood . Razors...


Q: 

There are many ways to contract hiv, My question is, Can you contract hiv from a mosquito?

A: no no you cant. studies show that only pregnant mosquitos bite. after doing so they have their babies and die cant remember where i read that but do remember it no you can''t No, the virus is destroyed by the mosquito''s digestive juices long before it can be trasmitted to a human. Absolutely not. No you can''T! I always wondered that so I found out a mosquito dies after it feeds.Otherwise could you imagine the problem we would be having. No. The mosquito''s saliva and gastric acids kill hiv; also, the number of viral particles that you would get from even several mosquitoes would be too few to cause an infection. Diseases adapted to live in mosquitoes, however, such as Malaria (which may be responsible for more human deaths in all of history than all other causes...


Q: 

Can greeks contract hiv?

A: Well, I''ve never seen an hiv-positive Greek...have you? Of course not. So the answer is that obviously, all Greeks are immune to hiv. God. Ok what planet are you from? If you can do the deed you can get hiv or any STD. Disease is not prejudice. Anyone can contract hiv. If your human, you can contract hiv. So yes. Anyone can get hiv, no one is immune. hiv does not discriminate. ANYONE who has unprotected sex or shares needle after injecting IV drugs is at risk for hiv. It only takes 1 time, 1 unprotected sexual act to infect someone. They sure...


Q: 

How Do You contract hiv?

A: hiv is found in either blood or certain bodily fluids (semen, vaginal secretions), and it can enter the body directly into the bloodstream, or via certain delicate mucous membranes. You basically get it through unprotected sex with an individual that has the Virus, or by using hypodermic needles if they are infected with the Virus, or through a small cut if they have a cut and you have a cut and through the exchange of bodily fluids is how you get the Virus. hiv can be contracted by contact with blood, semen, and vaginal secretions. You cannot get hiv by hugging or kissing someone who has the disease. It is most commonly spread through sexual contact and intravenous drug use (needles).

Q: 

Is it still possible to contract hiv?

A: good question not with hiv and Aids but with pregnancy yes. i don''t really think so but i would be extra safe and just not do someone with aids if i know they have it but i always use protection because you never know. i would think that just from his penis being inside of you the risk would be high because you never know what bodily fluids are coming out of his hole during sex. there is also a thing called precum so that could contract it also. There is always pre-*** to worry about, which would carry the virus. Well they do have pre ejaculation so there for there is a risk of an exchange of bodily fluids. Also if they have to have any sort of sore, anything from sore skin from rough sex, to a cut, and if you have one inside that you may...


Q: 

How likely am I to have just contracted hiv or Hep C. from this situation that just happend 5 mins ago?

A: According to the CDC''s website factsheet located here: http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/diseases/hepatitis/c/fact.htm "Occurs when blood from an infected person enters the body of a person who is not infected." It is my understanding that IV drug users are at the highest risk, however I do know that a high number of Vets contracted Hep C from the Gamma Globulin shots they recieved. There was no way to test for Hep in Blood donated prior to 1992 (I believe this to be the correct date) Here is another link for you to read about Hep C at the CDC''s website. http://www.cdc.gov/ncidod/diseases/hepatitis/c/ I would not worry too much about this one insident. Hope this has helped. Have a great day ... u precticallyt have nmothing to worry about... u have no open...


Q: 

I was recently poked by the tip of a pen in the emergency room. Is it possible that I have contracted hiv?

A: anything is possible. Look someone just won 356 million on lottery too. No... hiv can not be contracted in that manner. The virus will die upon exposure to Oxygen. Almost like getting hiv from a doorknob. Can''t be done. But you must be careful not to get other germs and issues that way. If you didn''t wash the area thouroughly right after the prick, and if the pin didn''t break skin, you should be fine. Though you should ask your doctor to do an hiv test, and get one every three months (or as often as the doctor tells you). These tests, along with STD tests, should be administered anyway if you are having premarital sex. If you are unsure if you have contracted the...


Q: 

What is the life expectancy of someone who has contracted hiv?

A: Here it is from JAIDS: ''Introduction: We estimate life expectancy and average years of life lost (AYLL) after an hiv diagnosis using population-based surveillance data from 25 states that have had name-based hiv surveillance since 1996. Methods: We used US national hiv surveillance data (cases ?13 years old) to model life expectancy after an hiv diagnosis using the life table approach. We then compared life expectancy at hiv diagnosis with that in the general population of the same age, sex, and race/ethnicity in the same calendar year using vital statistics data to estimate the AYLL due to an hiv diagnosis. Results: Average life...


Q: 

If you think you might have contracted hiv by blood on blood contact, is there a pill you can take right after

A: No, that''d be awsome though. No. If you think you may have contracted it, talk to your doctor about what to do and necessary tests that need to be done to determine if you have contracted it or not. Nope. Pregnancy is in one spot. If something gets in your blood it travels quickly and it''s there to stay. Sorry bud. Yes, it''s called AZT. It''s a prophylactic hiv medication, used in accidental exposures and hiv positive pregnant mothers to prevent the fetus becoming infected. Yes but you only have 2 hours after the exposure to start prophylaxsis thearpy. The down side is, is it makes you feel very sick, and the therapy I think is 6 weeks long. NO. Go to the doctor right now and get tested!...
