HIV is transmitted through exposure to infected blood, semen, vaginal fluid or breast milk. Highest risk activities include sharing of injection drug using equipment and unprotected anal sex.
The body's first line of defense against infection is the skin.
Processing times for HIV tests vary depending on the lab. In most instances, 2 weeks is a standard wait time for confirmatory test result processing in this area.
You sit them down and calmly tell them the situation. While the onset of AIDS is much more ominous than just HIV, the current treatments are such that many symptoms can be avoided or ameliorated. That said, it is especially difficult for parents to accept outliving their children.

Its known why and is not a possible reason but fact. Its a naturally occurring genetic mutation. HIV seeks out and uses CD4 the protein that covers the T helper cell that HIV infects. The mutation creates a different protein on the T helper cell that HIV is not able to detect. Without binding to T...
