Q: 

what is your view on the banning of blood donations from homosexual men?

A: I think itís wrong and archaic and did I mention, wrong? Yep, thatís it.. I think itís an outdated rule and should be changed. I understand why the rule was put into place, but I feel itís time to reconsider it. I understand they want to have as little risk as possible and that is considered to increase the risk. All blood is tested anyway, so I donít see why they canít get rid of that ruling. I wouldnít go as far as boycotting blood donation though because many people benefit from blood donation. I would feel really badly knowing my blood donation could help someone and I wasnít donating it.. I think it is outdated, bigoted, and stupid....

A: are you meaning a friend who is a girl, or an actual girlfriend (someone you have a relationship with)? You didn''t actually say aloud that you had sex next to her, but I''m guessing you must''ve done - otherwise you probably wouldn''t be asking this question. You didn''t read aloud how long ago you were intimate beside this girl, if it was 2 years ago or over and you enjoy had these hiv test AFTER you slept with her near is nothing to verbs about - because it would''ve shown up on a check by now, it shows up after 3/6 months.

A: Dear Unenlightened and Worried, hiv diagnosis and treatment continue to improve, but hiv/AIDS remains a complex condition.

A: 4 months agoJust checked and it looks like the window is 13 weeks and my GP is wrong '' I'm sorry that I'm unsure of the exact percentage.
