The Right Time To Do An HIV Check?
Good evening doctor, who I want to ask: 1. To find out whether or not infected with HIV, when is the most appropriate time to check into an HIV lab / test after making a risky relationship. To make sure whether or not the tests / tests in the lab are enough to be done just once or should be done several times. When performing oral activities with a female partner (only on the outside of her sex organs) and a little fluid coming out of the V can be swallowed whether it is also potentially HIV positive. 4. The use of condoms that are not right (upside down) is also potentially affected by the disease. So the question from me, thank you and greetings success always.
Hello Yudiz, Thank you for the question.
Human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) can be transmitted through body fluids such as ejaculatory fluid, pre-ejaculatory fluid, vaginal mucus, rectal mucus, and breast milk from HIV positive patients to others. This bodily fluids must contact / contact with mucous walls (mucosal walls) or body tissues that are damaged or injected directly into the bloodstream. The mucous wall of the body is found in the vagina, rectum, penis, and oral cavity. Thus, HIV can be transmitted through the following methods:
sexual relations with HIV positive people without condoms sharing needles with HIV sufferers for example injecting drug users receiving blood transfusions or other blood products that are contaminated with HIV from HIV positive mothers to their babies during pregnancy, childbirth, or breastfeeding In theory, HIV transmission through oral sex may occur if an HIV sufferer ejaculates in someone else's mouth. However, transmission through this method is quite rare based on existing studies. HIV testing through blood tests is a test that is used to determine whether someone is infected with HIV or not. Examination of blood currently available can be in the form of examination of immune substances / antibodies that form in the body in response to HIV infection or examination of antigens (protein particles on the surface of the virus). For antibody testing, it takes 3-12 weeks of exposure / infection to occur until the number of antibodies is high enough to be examined in the blood while for antigen testing it takes 2-6 weeks after exposure / infection occurs. Depending on when the initial examination was carried out, this examination may be recommended to be repeated at 3 months and 6 months to ensure a person is not infected.
Condoms are one of the contraceptives that can be used to reduce the risk of becoming infected with HIV. If a man uses a condom correctly (not detached and not torn), even if it is reversed, then the use of a condom can still protect against HIV transmission.
To avoid transmission of HIV is to not take the risky actions mentioned above. Proper use of condoms is also one way to avoid the risk of HIV transmission.
Hopefully this information is useful.
