There is a very strong link between STDs and HIV.    The first link, of course, is the way both are acquired. Both STDS and HIV are acquired through sexual contact (heterosexual, homosexual sex).   The same behaviors that put one at risk for stds put people at risk for HIV.   Studies have...

  HIV (Human Immuno-deficiency Virus) is a virus which can quickly lead to AIDS (Aquired Immuno-deficiency Syndrome). With the correct medication, known as anti-retrovirals, a sufferers life-span can be considerably lengthened. After developing AIDS, treatment with anti-retroviral medication...

  Well...if you got the virus before...you are still not cured. YOU CAN encounter a more dangerous strain of the virus. Technically, you can get it twice, without ever losing it the first time...if that makes sense
You can't. the only thing you can do is be careful to avoid contracting it. Always practice safe sex and only have sex with partners you know and trust; don't do intravenous drugs, or at least use a fresh, sterile needle every time; make sure you use reputable providers if you need to use any...

At one time this was the case. However, once testing of blood products began in the mid 1980s, the chances of someone being infected with HIV via blood transfusions is virtually non-existant.  Hemophiliacs suffer from a disorder of the blood where blood does not clot properly, if at all. This means...

No, sperm can live outside the body on a surface for about a hour and even longer in the vagina.
When was the HIV virus known in Ghana
HIV treatment stops people progressing to AIDS. So the answer to this question is 'no', but you need to have access to treatment before your immune system becomes very damaged. Without treatment nearly everyone will see their CD4 count drop until they are at risk of of the infections that define...

Yes.Viruses tend to be specialists. They zero in on a few particular types of cells in the body and move in. The human immunodeficiency virus is best known for targeting the T cells of the immune system. However, it can also attack cells of the brain, nervous system, digestive system, lymphatic...

If the blood on the clothing has been exposed to air and has solidified, then there is zero chance of you becoming infected.   Strange as it may seem, air is the most efficient means of killing HIV - so once it is exposed to air, HIV can only survive for a matter of minutes.   The only...
