    How do you get hiv from unprotected sex?
    During #unprotected sex, hiv in the bodily fluids of an infected person (blood, semen, vaginal fluid, pre-cum or anal mucus) can pass into the body of their sexual #partner. This can happen through the mucous membranes of the penis, vagina, rectum and sometimes the mouth and throat.

    If someone is living with hiv, they are more likely to pass it on to others in the first few months after infection as there are high levels of the #virus in their bodily fluids at this point. 1

    Are some types of sex riskier than others?
    Most people get hiv by having unprotected vaginal or anal sex. Anal sex is the most risky because the lining of the anus is more delicate than the lining of the vagina and is more easily damaged. Receptive anal sex (bottoming) is riskier than insertive anal sex (topping).

    There is a very small chance of getting hiv from unprotected oral sex, but only if the person giving oral sex has mouth ulcers, sores or bleeding gums, or if the person receiving oral sex has been recently infected.

    Having multiple sexual partners and/or stis also increases the risk of hiv infection via unprotected sex.

    How can I avoid getting hiv from unprotected sex?

    Condoms are the most effective way of preventing hiv (and sti) infection via vaginal and anal sex as well as oral sex performed on men. They should be put on before any sexual contact as hiv can be passed on through pre-come, vaginal fluid, and from the anus.

    Lubricants, or lube, make sex safer by reducing the risk of vaginal or anal tears caused by dryness or friction. It can also reduce the risk of a condom breaking.

    Use water-based lubricants instead of oil-based lubricants (such as vaseline) as oil-based lubricants weaken the latex in condoms and can cause them to break.

    A dental dam is a small plastic sheet that can be used to cover the mouth and the vagina or anus to reduce the risk of hiv (and stis) during oral sex.

    Pre-exposure prophylaxis (prep)
    Prep is antiretroviral drugs taken daily by people at high risk of hiv infection. To prevent sexual transmission of hiv, prep is sometimes recommended for:

    Anyone in an ongoing relationship with an hiv-positive partner
    Anyone who is sexually active with more than one person, even if they recently tested negative for hiv
    Heterosexual men or women who don't use condoms with partners whose hiv status is unknown and are at high risk of hiv infection (e. G. They inject drugs or have bisexual male partners. 6

    Prep can provide a high level of protection against hiv, but is most effective when used with condoms. Prep is not available everywhere.

    If you think you are at high risk of hiv infection via unprotected sex, talk to a healthcare professional about whether prep is right for you.

    Post-exposure prophylaxis (pep)
    Pep is the use of antiretroviral drugs after an event that puts you at risk of hiv - such as unprotected sex - to stop hiv from spreading in the body. It must be started within 72 hours of possible exposure.

    However, pep is not 100% effective, and should not be viewed as an alternative to condoms.

    Your doctor or healthcare worker will advise you on whether you could take pep. Again, pep may not be available where you are.
  • MD - General Medicine
    After exposure to HIV in the workplace (occupational exposure)

    Pep is used when people are exposed in the workplace to body fluids that may contain HIV for example, a healthcare worker who accidentally suffers a needle-stick injury.

    After exposure to HIV in other settings (non-occupational exposure)

    Pep can also be used after a high-risk exposure that is not work-related, such as unprotected sex, a condom breaking during sex, needle sharing or sexual assault.

    How much protection does pep provide from HIV infection?

    We don't know. Several studies suggest that anti-HIV drugs can reduce the risk of HIV infection if taken within 72 hours of an exposure to HIV and if taken every day for four weeks. The sooner pep is started after an exposure, the more likely it is to work.

    We know that pep does not always prevent HIV infection. There are several reports of people becoming infected with HIV despite taking pep medications.

    Who should consider taking PEP?
    An HIV-negative person who has had a possible high-risk exposure to HIV within the last 72 hours should consider taking PEP.

    Not all types of exposure have the same chance of causing HIV infection some are riskier than others. Before taking pep, a person must first discuss their situation with a nurse, doctor or counselor. If the chance of becoming infected with HIV is low, either because it is unlikely that the source person was HIV-positive or because the way they were exposed has a low risk of transmission, pep may not be recommended.

    Pep is intended to prevent HIV infection and should not to be used by a person who is HIV-positive. When a person starts pep, an HIV test must be done to determine the person's HIV status. If rapid testing (which gives results within a matter of minutes) is not available, the test result may not be ready for one to two weeks; nevertheless, pep will be started immediately. If the test result is positive, the person will stop taking pep and a doctor will need to decide whether HIV treatment is needed.

    HIV treatment is done by antiviral drugs, there are number of antiviral drugs available in the market, usually HIV is treated with combination of drugs, usually two to three drugs are used in treating HIV in initial stage, we can change the combination of drugs according to requirement of the patient. Drugs can be adjusted or increased if there is resistance of HIV in the patient.

    There are number of compounds (about 22 in number) which have been formally approved (by the us food and drug administration) for the treatment of HIV infections (aids). According to their point of intervention with the HIV replicative cycle, these compounds can be classified in 5 categories:
    1. NRTIs (Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors): Azidothymidine, Didanosine, Zalcitabine, Stavudine, Lamivudine, Abacavir and Emtricitabine, Tenofovir, administered as its oral pro drug form TDF (Tenofovir Disoproxil Fumarate)

    2. NNRTIs (Non-Nucleoside Reverse Transcriptase Inhibitors): Nevirapine, Delavirdine and Efavirenz

    3. PIs (Protease Inhibitors HIV): Saquinavir, Ritonavir, Indinavir, Nelfinavir, Amprenavir, Lopinavir, Atazanavir, Fosamprenavir, Tipranavir and Darunavir

    4. FIs (Fusion inhibitors): Enfuvirtide. Starting from the drugs which are currently available for the treatment of aids, numerous combinations could be envisaged. Drug combinations are, in principle, aimed at obtaining synergism between the compounds (reasonably expected if they act by different mechanisms), while reducing the likelihood for drug resistance development. Such anti-HIV drug combination regimes were initiated about 10 years ago and have been generally referred to as haart (for highly active antiretroviral therapy). While haart originally consisted of a pill burden of twenty (or more) pills per day, this has been gradually diminished over the past few years, and, since July 2006, a all-in-one pill (teevir from myelin and virotrenz from ranbaxy sun pharma) has become available, which contains three anti-hiv drugs (tenofovir disoproxil fumarate 300 mg, emtricitabine 200mg and efavirenz 600 mg) to be taken as a single pill only once daily. Given the information that has been acquired on the therapeutic use (efficacy, safety) of tenofovir disoproxil fumarate over the past five years, it would now seem mandatory to further consider the prophylactic use of TDF [and its combination with emtricitabine (truvada) and/or atripla], as a single daily pill to prevent HIV infection. New combinations of drugs are also available which include tenofovir 300 mg lamivudine 150 mg which are very new drugs.

    A member of the illustrious group of cancer-fighting cruciferous vegetables, kale is quickly becoming one of the most popular health foods today. Ornamental kale has also taken conventional landscapes by storm. With their brilliant blue, red and white interior, these varieties of kale are edible as well!

    The health benefits of kale have been enjoyed since ancient Rome and history tells us that it was one of the most popular green leafy vegetables of the middle ages.

    Kale comes from the acephala group of the brassica oleracea species that includes collard greens. There are two main varieties of kale: one that has green leaves and one that has purple. Interestingly, the central leaves do not form a head, which is one reason why kale is considered to be more closely related to wild cabbage than most domesticated forms of vegetables.

    It is most commonly classified by leaf type:

    Cavolo nero (dinosaur kale, black cabbage)
    Curly (scots kale)

    Leaf and spear (hybrid of curly and plain)

    Being part of the brassica oleracea vegetable species, kale is in good company and it shares many of the same characteristics as its cousins:

    Bok choy

    Brussel sprouts

    Mustard greens

    There are a number of things that may be keeping you from getting pregnant:

    Damage to your fallopian tubes. These structures carry eggs from your ovaries, which produce eggs, to the uterus, where the baby develops. They can get damaged when scars form after pelvic infections, endometriosis, and pelvic surgery. That can prevent sperm from reaching an egg.

    Hormonal problems. You may not be getting pregnant because your body isn't going through the usual hormone changes that lead to the release of an egg from the ovary and the thickening of the lining of the uterus.

    Cervical issues. Some women have a condition that prevents sperm from passing through the cervical canal.

    Uterine trouble. You may have polyps and fibroids that interfere with getting pregnant. Uterine polyps and fibroids happen when too many cells grow in the endometrial, the lining of the uterus.

    " unexplained" infertility. For about 20% of couples who have infertility problems, the exact causes are never pinpointed.

    When it comes to great-tasting nutrition, broccoli is an all-star food with many health benefits. While low in calories, broccoli is rich in essential vitamins and minerals, in addition to fiber.

    Broccoli belongs to a family of vegetables called cruciferous vegetables and its close relatives include brussel sprouts, cauliflower, and cabbage. Broccoli contains sulforophane, a sulfur-containing compound present in cruciferous vegetables

    As if that's not enough, a cup of cooked broccoli offers as much vitamin c as an orange, and is a good source of beta-carotene. Broccoli contains vitamins b1, b2, b3, b6, iron, magnesium, potassium, and zinc too. It also provides fiber and is low in calories.

    Vitamin k essential for the functioning of many proteins involved in blood clotting

    Vitamin c builds collagen, which forms body tissue and bone, and helps cuts and wounds heal. Vitamin c is a powerful antioxidant and protects the body from damaging free radicals.

    Fiber diets high in fiber promote digestive health. A high fiber intake can also help lower cholesterol.

    Potassium a mineral and electrolyte that is essential for the function of nerves and heart contraction.

    Folate is necessary for the production and maintenance of new cells in the body.

    Infertility affects approximately 1 out of every 6 couples. An infertility diagnosis is given to a couple who are unable to conceive over the course of one year. When the problem lies with the male partner it is referred to as male infertility. Male infertility factors contribute toapproximately 30% of all infertility cases, and male infertility alone accounts for approximately one-fifth of all infertility cases.

    There are four main causes of infertility in males:

    A hypothalamic or pituitary disorder (1-2%)
    Gonad disorder (30-40%)
    Sperm transport disorder (10-20%)
    Unknown causes (40-50%)

    Researchers and scientists are talking more and more about the possibility of a cure. We now know hiv as well as certain cancers.

    A lot of recent research has focused on finding a functional cure'. A functional cure means that HIV still exists in the body but at such low levels it can't be detected by a blood test or make you ill.

    The most well-known case of a potential functional cure occurred in a man called timothy brown, also known as the berlin patient. In 2008, he had a bone marrow transplant to treat leukaemia that also seemed to have cured his HIV. However, bone marrow transplants are very dangerous and it's still not fully understood why the procedure worked in this case.

    Scientists have also tried giving babies born to HIV-positive mothers early treatment to stop him hiding in their body and prevent it from spreading.

    In 2013, a baby in Mississippi, USA received treatment just 30 hours after birth, and another baby from California, USA was treated in 2014 when she was just four hours old. Unfortunately, HIV has since been found in the Mississippi baby and a similar outcome is expected for the California baby.

    Functional cures are difficult to achieve because HIV hides just out of reach in hidden reservoirs. Destroying the reservoirs may be the key to curing HIV.

    Sexual performance anxiety can affect both men and women, and it can range from unwarranted fears about the outcomes of sex (pregnancy, stds, shame) to hyper-critical evaluations of the self (worrying that one is unsexy, un-masculine/feminine, etc.). Whenever these kinds of anxious thoughts and feelings become attached to sex and performance, the body releases stress hormones that can interfere with sexual arousal and performance. This failure to perform can cause even greater anxiety, resulting in a vicious circle. Knowing how to break the cycle of sexual performance anxiety can help both partners have a healthier sex life and a happier relationship.

    Are ejaculation problems an issue of mind over matter?

    Well, if a man and his #partner don't mind how long it takes him to ejaculate, then it really doesn't matter. For example, Ian Kerner, Ph.D., a sex therapist and author of she comes first, advises men to bring their partners to the brink of orgasm before having intercourse. Then, if he's prone to #premature ejaculation, it doesn't matter since both of them come away satisfied.

    Conversely, if a man takes longer than average to ejaculate, but both partners enjoy marathon sex sessions, then delayed ejaculation can be a real plus.

    However, some men do mind how long it takes them to ejaculate. They mind a lot -- and so do their partners. But while the mind often plays a big role in creating ejaculation problems, it's also key in overcoming them. Here are some tips on what to do.

    Do you think you have been exposed to HIV within the last 72 hours?

    If yes, you may be able to get treatment to prevent HIV infection.

    What is emergency HIV treatment?

    Post-exposure prophylaxis, or pep, is another name for emergency HIV treatment. Pep is not a cure for HIV, it is a form of HIV prevention. It is a short course of antiretroviral drugs that stops exposure to HIV from becoming a life-long infection.

    Taking pep

    Pep can cause side effects such as nausea and fatigue. Do not stop taking pep - talk to your healthcare professional.

    Pep must be taken as soon as possible to be effective and no later than 72 hours after exposure to HIV.

    Pep must be taken at the same time every day for 4 weeks.

    Can I get pep?

    Not everyone is given pep and it is not available everywhere. A healthcare professional will advise you if they think you should take pep. Do not assume you will be offered it.

    Usually, you should only take pep if.

    It has not been longer than 72 hours since exposure to HIV
    You are not already living with HIV

    A mucous membrane (including eyes, mouth, vagina, rectum) has had direct contact with someone's bodily fluid that might be infectious

    An open wound has had direct contact with someone's bodily fluid that might be infectious

    The source of exposure is infected with HIV or their HIV status is unknown.

    Watermelon is by far, one of the most powerful, body-healing fruits out there! the amazing health benefits of watermelon cover everything from your brain all the way to the cells in your feet.

    Some of the best watermelons I've had was from costa Rica. The fruit there is incredible, and watermelon tasted about 80% better than the stuff you buy in stores in north America. Plus, they all contained seeds, which means none of them were GMO, hybrid, or tainted in any respect. If you want to eat some tasty fruit with me down there at the live love fruit raw rejuvenation retreat, you won't be disappointed. Raw foods, unlimited fruit, and vegetables, freshly cracked coconut water, yoga, eco-adventures and so much more!

    The best time to indulge in this fresh, succulent, juicy melon, is summertime, when they are in season and deliver an array of nutrients, vitamin, and minerals.

    Watermelon is incredibly hydrating (up to 92% water!) and is naturally low-fat. Make this melon a part of your daily diet and you will reap amazing benefits that range from improving cardiovascular health to nourishing your eyes and revving up your immune system! read below and see for yourself!

    Cardiovascular bone health

    The lycopene in watermelon is especially important for our cardiovascular health and is now being recognized as an important factor in promoting bone health. Consuming large amounts of watermelon has also been correlated with improved cardiovascular function because it improves blood flow via vasodilation (relaxation of blood pressure). Dietary lycopene (from foods like watermelon or tomatoes) reduces oxidative stress which normally reduces the activity of osteoblasts and osteoclasts (the two major bone cells involved in the pathogenesis of osteoporosis) this means stronger bones for those consuming lycopene-rich foods. Watermelon is also rich in potassium which helps to retain calcium in your body, resulting in stronger bones and joints.

    Reduces body fat

    The citrulline in watermelon has been shown to reduce the accumulation of fat in our fat cells. Citrulline is an amino acid which converts into arginine with help from the kidneys. When our bodies absorb citrulline it can take the step of converting into arginine if so required. Citrulline, when consumed, has the ability to (through a series of steps) block the activity of tnap (tissue-nonspecific alkaline phosphatase) which makes our fat cells create less fat, and thus helps prevent over-accumulation of body fat.

    Living with libido loco? for a growing number of women, declining hormones, job stress, relationship issues, and other problems are taking their toll in the bedroom.

    Loss of sexual desire, known in medical terms as hypoactive sexual desire disorder (hsdd), is the most common form of sexual dysfunction among women of all ages. A recent study showed that nearly one-third of women aged 18 to 59 suffer from a lost interest in sex, and it's not all in their heads.

    Unlike men's main sexual complaint, erectile dysfunction, women's biggest sexual problem is caused by a combination of both mental and physical factors, which aren't likely to be cured by merely popping a pill.

    " women's sexuality tends to be multifaceted and fairly complicated" says sex psychologist sheryl kingsberg, phd" although we would love to simplify it so we could have the one-two or even a one-punch treatment, it doesn't tend to work that way"

    But the introduction of anti-impotence treatments in the last few years has spurred more research into the causes of sexual dysfunction among both men and women, and effective therapies are available to help put the lust back into women's lives.

    There are three main types of hiv tests: antibody tests, rna tests, and a combination test that detects both antibodies and viral protein called p24. All tests are designed to detect hiv-1, which is overwhelmingly the most common type of hiv in the united states. Some antibody tests and the combination test can also detect hiv-2 infections, which are less common in the u. S. No test is perfect; tests may be falsely positive or falsely negative or impossible to interpret (" indeterminate" see below).

    Positive test results are reportable to the health department in all 50 states and include the patient's name. This information is then reported to the cdc (without names) so that the epidemiology and infection spread rates can be monitored. The names sent to the state remain confidential and will not be reported to employers, family members, or other such people. Some states allow anonymous testing in which the patient's name is not recorded.

    Hiv antibody tests: hiv possesses many unique proteins on its surface and inside the virus itself.

    Hiv lives in the following bodily fluids of an infected person:

    semen and pre-seminal fluid (pre-cum)
    rectal fluids/anal mucous
    vaginal fluids
    breast milk.

    To get infected, these bodily fluids need to get into your blood through a mucous membrane (for example the lining of the vagina, rectum, the opening of the penis, or the mouth), breaks in the skin (like cuts), or be injected directly into your bloodstream.

    A person living with HIV can pass the virus to others whether they have symptoms or not. People with HIV are most infectious in the first few weeks after infection.

    Here we describe the main ways you can get HIV.

    Sex without a condom
    Having unprotected sex (sex without a condom) with someone who has HIV, particularly unprotected vaginal sex and anal sex.
    Sharing injecting equipment
    Sharing needles, syringes or other equipment used to prepare and inject drugs with someone who has HIV.
    Passed from mother-to-baby during pregnancy, childbirth, and breastfeeding
    A mother infected with HIV can pass the virus to her baby via her blood during pregnancy and birth, and through her breast milk when breastfeeding.
