HIV seroconversion symptoms

You're a gay or bisexual man (or a biological woman) with an active sex life. You meet a man at a club one night and you both decide to have sex in the club parking lot.

About 3 weeks later, you experience flu-like symptoms. You feel feverish, your throat is sore and you have difficulty swallowing. You also feel aches and pains in your joints and you experience night sweats that drench your bed linen.

Your symptoms may include:

  • Fever
  • fatigue (you feel tired)
  • sore throat
  • diarrhea
  • headache
  • aches and pains in muscles and joints
  • swollen lymph glands in your neck
  • loss of appetite
  • red rash on upper torso that does not itch
  • PRE-EXPOSURE

    For the past 2 weeks, the HIV virus that you contracted from your parking lot tryst has attacked your white blood cels (T helper cells) and used your t-cells to make multiple copies of itself.

    This process destroys your T-cells and releases antibodies and other substances into your blood that makes you feel ill.

    The antibodies are specific to your HIV virus and will come in handy later when you are tested for the HIV virus.

    But for now, you assume have the flu and you dismiss it. Eventually your appetite returns and the aches and pains and fever are gone.

    POST-EXPOSURE

    About 10 months later, you feel worse than you've ever felt in your life. You have a productive cough and you feel feverish and very weak.

    Your new boyfriend tells you he feels heat radiating off your body.

    He takes your temperature and you have a high-grade fever of 103.8.

    You tell him you had night sweats for about 4 weeks and now you have shaking chills.

    You alternate between feeling hot and feeling like you just stepped inside a walk-in freezer.

    Your boyfriend tells you he's taking you to the emergency room. But just the task of putting on your clothes exhausts you. You can barely walk to the car without his assistance.

    DIAGNOSIS

    At the emergency room, the doctor takes your medical history and runs a battery of diagnostic tests.

    He returns with the bad news: you're not only infected with the HIV virus but you also have full-blown acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS).

    You are diagnosed with an AIDS-related illness; a rare upper respiratory infection called Pneumocystis Pneumonia (PCP).

    The doctor has even worse news. You have a super strain of HIV virus that is resistant to all antiretroviral drugs.

    If you survive this bout of pneumonia the next infection could kill you.

    The brief flu-like illness that you experienced after the parking lot tryst 10 months before was called HIV seroconversion illness. It was the moment when you converted from HIV negative to HIV positive.

    If you had gone to the emergency room 10 months ago, an HIV antibody test would be positive and you would have started on antiretroviral drugs that would keep the virus from replicating.

    Now it's too late.

    HIV TRANSMISSION RATES

    Anal sex (male-to-male or male-to-female) remains the #1 mode of HIV transmission.

    Male-to-female HIV transmission is 1 case in every 2,500 exposures. Male-to-female anal HIV transmission is higher. Vaginal HIV transmission ranks 3rd behind Caucasian male-to-male and black male-to-male. Males can not contract HIV from a female via anal sex unless the female has a functioning penis.

    The risk of HIV exposure via anal sex is 1 case per 161 exposures for uncircumcised men and 1 case per 909 exposures per circumcised men.

    The risk of HIV transmission from female-to-male remains very low; about .04% or 4 cases out of every 100,000 exposures.

    This statistic is important because there are certain groups who spread misinformation about female-to-male transmission to fit their own hidden agendas.

    The reason for the low incidence of female-to-male transmission is because the HIV virus needs access into the bloodstream.

    That means his skin must be compromised in some way. Having a sore on his penis, a urinary tract infection, or an STD puts a man at higher risk of contracting HIV from a female.

    Intact skin provides a physical barrier between you and the HIV virus. The virus can be on your skin and not infect you as long as your skin is intact.

    Males and females can drastically reduce your risk of HIV exposure by avoiding anal sex even with a condom, since condoms can have microscopic tears in them.

    Intravenous drug use (injecting drugs) puts you at higher risk of HIV exposure if you share dirty needles with HIV infected individuals.

    Using clean needles that you purchased from a drug store or medical supplier does not put you at risk of HIV exposure.

      After that Charlie interview Philly news said there is drug that is given to high risk patients that don't have HIV but are sexually active . They said it's been out and doesn't cure it but helps prevent it.... It's supposed to be FDA approved.... I never heard of this.... But I'm not high risk either...Truvada Is what it's called. I don't know what message this sends but if it helps?!?!

      What are the stats for vaginal transmission from male to female? Anybody know?

    • Buttercup

      I'm the type of person who can't attempt to diagnose myself by looking up symptoms on the interwebs. I always resolve that I have cancer and I only have a few months to live. I call Mama Butter and Honey Dip to make sure they know my final wishes.

      But on a serious note, this is why early detection is key. I get tested every year at my annual since I'm in a monogamous relationship. If my results come back positive, it's going to be Honey Dip's family making fune arrangements.

    • YES I SAID IT…

      Auntie! How about I was feeling so bad one day that I had so many of the signs and I was like who am I going to have to kill but I couldn't recall any sick freaky unprotected sex that I had had that could have made me ill. So I went to the hospital and when the doctor came back I was like am I dying, he was like no u have food poisoning and the flu. Chile I just thought I was dead, anyway thanks for the info bcuz a lot of people need to know this

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      The drug is called PrEP. It stands for Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis. It is taken by gay men who have no plans to stop their high risk sexual escapades. The drug supposedly protects them from HIV before they are exposed to it. It's taken a month before sexual activity. It doesn't work if they already have the HIV infection.

    • winfred wright

      Great write up

    • SpillyNillie

      I was gone point to the kona but you already there LMAO

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      No problem, hun. You were correct to go the doctor with flu-like symptoms. These days you can't assume that it's just a cold or the flu.

    • Too Many Colors

      Dearest Sandra,

      You a morning time Debbie Downer. I mean, I guess the message can come anytime of the day. But between that pic "for illustration purposes only" to that long um....narrative...Damn can I have maybe more coffee? You couldn't have held this til like...2 pm today?

      Thanks tho. I loved the part about your new man feels the heat from your hot, newly sero-converted body. Nice touch auntie. You have been reading @Wuts stories huh?

      Your sister in ever loving Christ,

      Kdub

    • OSHH

      Good read. Thanks for specifically pointing out the very low possibility of female to male transmission, I knew that already, however it is good to continue to inform.
      The rates of HIV among black and latino men is frightening to say the least.
      Abstinence feels better and better every day :-)

    • http://www.mylifeinlame.com/?m=1 Kimberly

      Good read, Sandra. I have a question, what's the risk for male to female transmission via vaginal sex? I know someone who's mom was married to an iv drug user and he ended up HIV positive but his mom is still negative. She never had anal sex with her now ex husband so he's saying she never got it. Is that really possible?

    • Blaque Mahogany

      Sandra, have you heard about the Arkansas judge that was reducing sentences for sexual favors and sentencing men to 'community service' instead of jail...and how they found gay child porn on his computer.

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Male-to-female HIV transmission via vaginal sex is 1 case per 2,500 exposures. Male-to-female HIV transmission via anal sex will be higher. By comparison, female-to-male HIV transmission via vaginal sex is 4 cases in every 100,000 exposures.

    • SummerBaby

      I know you asked Sandra, but it's possible.

    • Juslookk2StraightShoot

      Good Morning Ms. Sandra and Happy Holidays - This really is a great read. Flu or any other abnormal symptom in your body should be attended by medical doctor. Folks could easily circumvent medical issues that could worsen without early treatment.

    • OSHH

      In DC testing is pretty much mandated, when you go in for a physical/gyn exam or what have you.

    • Milani

      Thank you Auntie for posting this. Very informative post, indeed.

      She answered this question a few comments down.

    • http://www.mylifeinlame.com/?m=1 Kimberly

      Wow. That's interesting. My friend was explaining kind of what Sandra explained in that it has to get in your blood stream and that usually happens during anal sex. Hmm...

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Male-to-female HIV transmission is 1 case in every 2,500 exposures. Male-to-female anal transmission is higher. Vaginal sex HIV transmission ranks 3rd behind Caucasian male-to-male and black male-to-male.

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Yes, I read about that.

    • Ms.Capricorn101

      Thanks Sandra for this much needed medical post! Pay attention buffoons from yesterday that were giving out incorrect infomation.Smh. Sandra you could have picked another pic uptop! #Yuck

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Just to clarify -- anal sex, whether you are male or female, puts you at higher risk for HIV exposure. The reason is the tissue in the rectum was not designed for that sort of trauma. The rectal tears provides easy access to the HIV virus to enter your bloodstream. So, yes, it is possible that she was spared the infection because she didn't have anal sex.

    • 1day poster

      Further propaganda and scare mongering that all gay sex = HIV | AIDS when it's primarily unsafe practices and risky behaviors that directly contribute.

      One can have an active consensual sex life while not dating or in your example have a on site public tryst ALL THE WHILE having protected sex. Ppl still do carry condoms on their person or even in their vehicles.

      prep doesn't prevent STD'S an as a result std rates are on the rise especially among men who have sex with men.

    • Buttercup

      I'm sure it's the same way in Atlanta. I make sure to tell them I need to do a full panel STD screening when I'm setting my appointment.

    • Juslookk2StraightShoot

      Whew that tickled me.

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      You're welcome, hun. I was so focused on writing about the low incidence of female-to-male HIV transmission that I forgot all about the male-to-female transmission rate.

    • Buttercup

      With Oraquick being readily available, I would at least make a run to the drugstore, wait 20 minutes for results, and strap up before getting it on with someone I don't know that well.

      Was that Oprah's Bunion who asked if we would judge if someone had a bevvy of Oraquicks on deck? LMBO. OB, I miss ya babe!

    • Juslookk2StraightShoot

      Good and Morning - yes, I agree on some of things you said, but some people keep them condoms in the car in the 100 degree heat for months and use them.

    • Juslookk2StraightShoot

      Have you ever asked someone to get tested and they look at you funny. I be like BYE Durty DACK

    • SpillyNillie

      If a man contracts HIV outside the marriage, it's highly possible he didn't contract if from a female? Does female-to-male transmission increase if he's having sex with the same infected woman?

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      You're correct. PrEP only protects against the HIV virus. But not in all cases. There are multiple variables that can cause HIV infection even if the person is taking PrEP.

    • Juslookk2StraightShoot

      Mandated by Health Department or Private Physican. It's a test that Most Insurance companies don't want to pay for.

    • Lambily01

      Does this mean that heterosexual men that have anal sex with women are just as likely to contract HIV?

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      I was wondering how long it would take you trolls to get here. I think my readers are smart enough to deduce that the 2 men in my example were engaged in random unprotected sex without a condom. I didn't think I had to spell it out.

    • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

    • Wuts got Petty Davis Eyes..

      When I was in college, i had a few white girlfriends tell me they were still virgins...because they let their boyfriend (Hair Lova phrase) Bootiebust..so when they get married they can say their husbands was the first.. crazy right? I wonder how many women do this and now can catch that Sheen Coldsweat and be vag virgins..

    • 1day poster

      Respectfully (ironic as you demand this for yourself) I am not a troll. I have been an avid reader for the past 5 years so I know first hand the deductive skills of some readers who take what you say as gospel and that cleverly left out omission as it fits within your very own agenda (another irony) on schooling women was purposely done.

      As you should be. You don't know if your new husband will be on the down low. Don't trust anyone who knocks on your back door.

      This is great. This is also scary. Glad I practice abstinence and when I was sexually active, used condoms and never practiced anal sex. I can't believe in 2015 people are still contracting HIV from sex. Hard heads make for positive test results.

      Even in a monogamous relationship with one partner, you don't know what he's doing out there in the streets. I can't tell you how many guys I spotted at the gay club who have girlfriends and wives at home. They banned me from the male gay clubs in Atlanta for that reason.

      By the health department.
      DC had a very high incidence of HIV and they want to folks to know their status with or without insurance, so they offer free testing/screenings all in an effort to stop the spread. In these last couple of years rates of infection has decreased.

    • jeniefrumdabloc™

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      This is good information. The best way to avoid HIV infection is don't do anal. If your man insists on anal sex, you have to wonder why he's so into anal. The trolls will come in here and call me a fear monger and try to twist the truth. But facts are facts. If a man contracts HIV and he never had a blood transfusion and he doesn't shoot up, there is only one other way he got it: through anal sex with another man.

    • Deno Spencer

      Any one male female gay bi straight curious who has unprotected sex puts themselves at risk. HIV is present in infected sex fluids such as Sprem. Precum. Vaginal secretions. Blood and mothers breast milk of an infected mother.

      The BEST way to avoid HIV infection is to use protection. Please do not go around saying otherwise

    • Juslookk2StraightShoot

      Low E. I get you, I'm the age of what Bre call women Advanced Age. For a minute nursing home HIV was on the rise.

      I've said this before, but you got put UP your Medical License, Credentials and Degree for folks to believe you.

      THANKS

    • Deno Spencer

      Sandra lesbian should use condoms on there toys as you never no if the woman is also sleeping with other women who may sleep with men or women
      #1 rule. Always wear condoms. Reduce your sex partners. Get in a mutual managomous relationship. Ask your partner before sex there status and get tested too
      FYI. If you get your partner tested today and it's negative. You should wait a month and get tested again as the infection might not have shown. Most rapid test can detect the anti bodies within 2weeks to two months( the window period)
      PS. Ladies and gentleman. Learn to open a condom correctly

    • Buttercup

      Yep. Just don't make him double strap. Who was the Rose who bragging about making Winston wear two condoms?

    • Auditor

      Yup my crack head auntie (was married to the man up top) has had the virus for 20+ years. She started taking the medicine and quit cause she said the medicine made her sicker than the virus. She's still going strong to this day. Her only medicine is the rock...so either the rock is the answer or this bish stronger than an ox...

    • Juslookk2StraightShoot

      Clean your toys with hot soapy clean water after each use.

      Well no one dies of HIV, they die of AIDS related symptoms

    • 1day poster

      Alas, as I noted in my rebuttal, I've seen and just shaken my head to the too many instances of Ms Rose to negatively paint gay men as deviants and perverts just here on earth to give male S/O's an incurable disease to pass on to their unsuspecting females counterparts. ?

    • Hair Lova ???

      Why is folks hating on the information? Take it or leave it. Of course there are other ways to transmit the disease, we know that. But this is one of the most common ways.

    • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

      Trust. It is real in the nursing home because you aren't allowed to disclose medical information and people have a right to privacy and intimacy.

    • Auditor

      Yup...my momma claim he was gay too...said they seen him in my grandma's care home getting one of the people. He had been in prison too...

      I dunno when my auntie got the virus as my cousin does not have hiv. So I dunno....

    • Auditor

      In my book it's the same ish...they just tryna confuse people...

    • jeniefrumdabloc™

      I agree protection yes . but what if protection (condoms fail) .. but chile think about thin skin .... very easy to tear ..... <<< ... Ima take it even further ... I don''t know if you eat pork ... but this will be my example ..... Say if your cooking some ribs .... after washing your ribs ... on the back of the rib ... there is a membrane (a thin layer of film) that can be pulled away from the rib.... if you hold it up to the light ... it's thin ...thin enough to pierce ... rip ... etc ..... going that way in the azz can put you at even higher risk .... !!! Always protect .... but hey ..... Sandra stated facts up there and I can't argue with that

    • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

      NO
      ?

    • Deno Spencer

      Last note. Having one STD, herpes. HPV chlamdyia etc puts one at an increase risk for HIV and other infections
      And sadly ladies and gentleman a lot times people will look u dead in the eye and lie to u about there status. Get tested.

      This is a scary world we live in. But, it'll be a whole lot better if those who are infected and continuously sleep around, be honest. Yes, no glove, no love, but, science even shows that condoms are not 100% effective. It's like telling us all that we should just close up shop, keep our legs crossed, if we want to live. A very close friend of mine has been married to her husband close to 14 years now and she absolutely will not sleep with her own husband without protection. And, if you mention anything to her about it, she calmly says, I'm no fool... I love me more than I love him.

      Speaking for myself and myself alone, I'm overjoyed when an attempt is made to educate gay males espically the youth who see new and developing medicines being produced as a rsn to continue risky behaviors but surely one can see that there is a common thread (anger) in these gay themed posts by a fellow LGBT member (whether she acknowledges it or not)

      I get the information being passed on but the way some of these people are acting in here, you woulda thought she said throw out the condoms because anal is issue. I'm like um you can still get HIV thru vagina sex. Hell, the vagina bleeds on its own all the time. Almost an easier way for it to get in the bloodstream than microscopic tears. I didn't see a single that mentioned the enforcement of condoms. Protection first and foremost. Just avoidin anal is not enough to protect.

    • Juslookk2StraightShoot

      OH MY GAWD my bad I thought I read I have one STD.

    • Deno Spencer

      Yes there is prep( pre exposure medication) medical studies show a 77 percent rate in prevention in heterosexual partners and a 44 percent prevention rate in male 2male partners. It works best when used WITH a condom. Ther is no cure for HIV. The problem is many take prep and than. Think they can go have unprotected sex. Post exposure meds are meds given immediately after u think u were exposed. One has 72 hrs to contact medical professional to take the combo. There no promise it will work but the odds are good if within the window. ( most medical professional are given this after and accidental exposure. Now it's here for the public
      Go to cdc.gov. Type in pre exposure medication and read up on it.

      Those strains from 20 years ago have mutated and done their thing. Even now, people who are in a relationship and both are positive are not encouraged to swap, even though I know a lot that do. They can have different strains.

      I have friends who have been positive since the late 80's and are big, fat, happy, and still kicking it. They haven't lost an ounce! And it hasn't affected their social life...AT ALL!

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Its funny how you trolls always overlook the statistics of female-to-male transfer. I'm not saying it doesn't happen, but it is unlikely to occur unless the male has an open sore on his penis or his skin is compromised in a way that gives the virus access to his bloodstream. The virus does not simply cross the skin into the blood. Educate yourself.

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Really? Explain how a man is infected with the virus if he does not have a break in his skin.

    • <—Doesn'tTalkToStrangers

      No that's a jokey joke. That's my free.

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      The risk is significantly higher for a female to get HIV from a man than for a man to get HIV from a woman. The risk for male-to-female is 1 case of HIV in 2,500 exposures. The risk for woman to man HIV transmission is 4 cases in 100,000.

    • Ant Hill

      You must be gay like 1day poster. A Google search will bring up many reputable websites with the same statistics as Sandra posted. AIDS is a gay disease spread by DL men to women and the odds of a heterosexual man contracting it are next to 0. Try again.

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      You are correct. Men have multiple random sexual encounters with other men and they don't get emotionally involved.

      Again: the best way to prevent HIV is to avoid anal sex. Vaginal sex usually does not result in microscopic tears. Condoms are important. But during anal sex, condoms have been known to burst.

      Your right. I think I do have an agenda. I really want to stop young people especially from getting HIV. I returned home after some years ago and my heart broke to discover so many young Blk boys infected and also the realities of how their mental health is being impacted. I'm absolutely enraged to know many infected by lying ass men or that many are just normal kids and youth doing normal things but they just didn't have the education to know about prevention or risky behavior. So much going on in the world. But than when I begin to work in the field and meet children born with HIV and living it made me see how stigma greatly perpetuates this infection. ( not that you caused a stigma I'm just saying in general). It's a balance. Understanding the needs and realities of the poz but also the realities of the risk factors for neg Parents don't no their kids out slutting it in cars all over the city Bareback even. I got it Ooooo. Hmmm this post was clever ms Sandra.

      Good read about a woman who found out her husband was diagnosed with AIDS. He told her he contracted HIV from sleeping with men. >> http://nypost.com/2015/11/18/be-brave-brooke-mueller-i-found-out-my-husband-had-hiv-too/

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      You still didn't explain HOW a man contracts HIV from a woman if he does not have an open sore or any other break in his skin. This is the problem with people who spread misinformation without providing facts to back up their information.

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Thanks. Sorry I was hard on you.

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      The risk of passing on HIV through oral sex is so low it is not even negligible.

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      You're still spreading misinformation. Please avail yourself of the statistics on the CDC website.

      I know a nasty queen whose legs are covered with Kaposi's sarcoma lesions. He never takes his pants off during sex, so his partners never see the unsightly nodules festering on his lower limbs.

      Thank you for reading hun.

      HIV can only be spread via needle stick if they share dirty needles with HIV infected people. I don't see that happening with celebrities who can afford their own needles.

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      I agree. They wouldn't have AIDS if they didn't have HIV.

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      And if you have a particularly difficult bowel movement that causes tears in your rectum, you can contract HIV if you have anal sex with a POZ man that same night or the next night. You are at high risk until those tears heal.

      You must be a man? The vagina doesn't bleed all the time; the uterus sheds its lining once a month. How many women have intercourse while on their period?

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      It's amazing to me that people totally ignore the statistics that clearly shows HIV is mainly transmitted by anal sex. Transmission via vaginal sex is not even close.

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      When I worked on the first AIDS unit in the mid 1980s, most of the male patients lied about how they contracted HIV. Some of the patients i knew personally from the gay clubs. But on their medical chart it said they were not gay and they contracted HIV from heterosexual sex. That's why the statistics of male-to-male transmission isn't a lot higher.

    • Lorenzo Chaps

      Everybody just stay to yourself and dont have sex. Married people included. Man, smh. I wonder how far along does your illness have to be for the lesions to start popping up. The guy I know who is HIV positive, doesn't have lesions at all.

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      This is a good read about a wife who found out her husband had full blown AIDS. He told her he slept with men while they were married. She didn't contract it from him because she made him use a condom unless they were trying to conceive. You can't trust even your husband these days. Say no to the backdoor. http://nypost.com/2015/11/18/be-brave-brooke-mueller-i-found-out-my-husband-had-hiv-too/

      Thank you for reading sis.

    • Luvn_it

      So has there been any studies involving oral sex and HIV???

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      You can't believe a word he says. Google the pics of him busting it wide open for the camera.

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      The statistics of oral transmission of HIV is so low it is not even assigned a percentage by the CDC. Please stop believing everything you read on the Internet.

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      Wow. I haven't seen a case of KS in decades.

    • 1/8

      His legs are covered with lesions; they are even on his feet.

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      The risk of oral HIV transmission is so low that the CDC doesn't even assign it a percentage. It just says "low."

      Same thing in LA . One night (cause that's ALL I it took) my gay friend took me out and we must have hit two maybe three gay clubs and WOW was all I could say. There was sea of black men with other black men. Some of the finest I'd ever seen too. That was the night I became COMPLETE aware. That was years ago too.

    • jeniefrumdabloc™

      Exactly! Bootay is still technically raw ! Correct!

    • just monique

      good so tired of these men blaming the women especially the ones who are gay

    • barbeez

      Okay. Now I'm terrified. 10 months and you about dead. I never knew that.

    • rodt

      Keep it out your butt and you wont get the aids.

    • chocolate thighs

      Thx Auntie, I'm going to check it out. I can tell right now, it's going to be a petrified story. Oh my... ?

    • ???

      I read it. She's a very lucky woman.

    • ???

      Exactly ! I get so damm sick and tired of men putting the blame on women for the spread of this disease. It always starts off with sum "black women are the highest percentage of new hiv cases" and there here come everybody with their rendition on the negatives of black women . The chit just goes on and on. Thank God for this post! Thank you too Sandra!!

      Lesions (Karposi) is AIDS stage. T cells are low and other (secondary) AIDS related illnesses can become prevalent.

    • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

      No worries. My periods used to get misplaced at times also.

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      They're changing public perception about how HIV is spread so they can bully the FDA into lifting the ban on gays giving blood.

    • https://sandrarose.com SandraRose

      If you are diagnosed with a strain of HIV that is resistant to drugs you may not live 6 months.

    • Candace O.

      It was very scary indeed! But a necessary one to read and keep in mind. Lol

    • eljjai

      sounded like the person was turning into a vampire.

    • ???

      Oh is that what that is? I just want to know if the facts are all in how in the hail do they think they gonna change THAT? I could never quite undestand the pure disdain that gay men have for black (not white, not hispanic, not asian) women. It seems to consume them then they wonder why they can't get no support from us. Ugh ! BTW Auntie I have my teenage daughter reading this here and sharing it with all her friends. BOOM !

    • DopeRhymesYo

      My bullet don't have HIV, it doesn't cheat, don't talk sh!!t.... I'm super straight ?

    • Deno Spencer

      The risk exist. People with dental issues, recent procedures or piercings etc are at an increased risk. Additionally personally I think any risk should be avoided. HIV is a potentially deadly virus and we must start by not minimizing any risk of acquiring it. Yes oral sex is low risk however the risk exist and condoms should be used when receiving or giving. Men can use dental dams or cut a straight line across a female or male condom to preform oral sex on women or woman on woman ( stretch the condoms across the vagina, anus, nipples to it you like.

    • Deno Spencer

      Now who seems to have an agenda :). Misinformation? A fact is a fact no matter how small the possibility of it happening; especially when it has been documented medically

      He could have received blood or vaginal secretions into his gums( does he have dental issues?) was blood placed in his eyes etc. ( reaching but possible)

      Furthermore CDC and other credible research suggest the true number of cases through oral sex technically is unknown as many participate in several high risk activities at the same time

      Also there is a document rise in cases from snorting cocaine and using the same straw or nose "sucky thing"

    • Deno Spencer

      He could have had unprotected vaginal sex or anal sex with a poz woman. Possible giving her oral sex or even cocaine use ( sharing same straw)

    • Deno Spencer

      Lol. I'm done. I thought Ms Sandra was coming with a scholarly debate. But this is dumb. The point of using condoms is to prevent bacteria from going up the urethra The infection occurs by the virus being absorbed through the soft tissues of the opening of the penis. What's the point of wearing a condom?
      You owe that person An apology As that is correct. Keep in mind im the medical professional with the credentials in HIV( health educator). Just saying

    • chocolate thighs

      Yeah, very sad story. Imo, I believe she was fortunate due to the fact they were only using protection when they were attempting to conceive. When she finds ouabout his ailment, it's clear, he had been living with it before they met. Smh at the secrets these men carry around and after it was all said and done, she constantly lived in fear for years and received a lot of scrutiny and negativity. I'm glad now, she has been more open with sharing her tribulations, strong woman she is.

      Is this what the guy took on How To Get Away With Murder?

    • SouljaSociety

      What's funny is, every person who has ever had sex is reading this and like "oh sh*t, these same symptoms happened to me!" .... People never read these "HIV Symptoms" because literally anything on earth will be listed as an "HIV symptom" somewhere online...... Just get tested... And believe it or not HIV is not as easy to catch like people would have you to believe. The HIV virus dies once it hits the air within seconds..... and statistically it's easier for a woman to catch the virus from a man, than vice versa... I know a n*gga who had RAW sex with an HIV positive chick for MONTHS unknowingly, and he still came out negative after getting tested several times months afterwards.....But this is a rare case.... You can still catch the bug from a woman.. But I'm just saying.

    • Sleepy One

      Amen!

    • lisn Hear

      this was good scary information.

      very informational! thanks

      I had to revisit this post after a student of mine revealed her HIV+ positive status to me. Much like the post, she said she was feeling ill for a while but finally knew something was wrong when she had to be wheeled onto an airplane, in a wheelchair, because she was too tired and too weak to walk through the airport. Please protect yourselves, everyone.
