Someone today inferred I was a slut because I got tested for HIV.


PSA: Don't be that guy.

Was it me, it was probably me. It most likely was me, but then again I call you slut for breathing air.

A couple of questions:(and please don't send a link to LMGTFY or any of that bullcrap, because I'm sick of it)
1.) Can I get cancer from AIDS?
2.) I heard that some STDs are genetically recieved, but there's no sure way of knowing if you're a carrier or not. If I'm a carrier of an STD, can I still get another STD?
3.) Where should I go to get tested for HIV/AIDS? My primary care physician?
4.) My health mentioned the term TSE or something. What does it mean and is it relevant to HIV?
5.) If I get tested positive for HIV, will whoever is testing me treat me as well?
6.) Is it possible to get HIV even if you have safe sex and don't share needles?
7.) (this is going to sound stupid) Are crabs an STD?
Thank you very much.
Why is it called tourist season if we can't shoot them?

1. No.
2. Yes. STD is a generic term that is just used as a loose catch-all. if you have HIV you can still catch chlamydia, herpes, genital warts, gonorrhea and so on.
3. GUM clinics in the UK. Google "sexual health clinics [your area here]" if you're abroad.
4. No idea. Context required.
5. Sometimes. If they don't, they'll always refer you to someone who will.
6. Practising safe sex using condoms, dental dams and gloves minimizes the risk but doesn't remove it absolutely. The other big way of catching it is open wounds (i.e. blood transmission).
7. Yes. As mentioned above, STD is a loose term to indicate nasty things transmitted during sex.

NB: this thread needs a revamp. It's nowhere near accessible.

And also... when I'm being tested, will I have to get blood drawn? I'm deathly afraid of needles.

For the record, this is the sort of thing I was referring to when I described you as "thoroughly reasonable".

Yes, not from Aids itself, but it does leave you more susceptible to viral cancers. e.g. Kaposi's sarcoma.

To clarify on this point: AIDs weakens your immune system, which means your body can't fight off virus/bacteria/etc as efficiently. This means you get ill and catch infections more easily, which is the primary cause of death: something which an ordinary person could fight off can kill you if your immune system is weaker. Most cancer isn't caused in this way (or at least, we haven't discovered that it is). Kaposi's sarcoma is one of a very tiny minority of cancers which we know is caused by a virus, so is an exception.

Okay I posted about this in the other forum buuuuttt...

You can't get HIV from kissing, is that true?

I had glandular fever in November and had paranoia it was HIV after kissing someone :noes:

I'm recovering from my paranoia but still need a little boost...
