Question: Panic of HIV infection

Answered by Dr. S. Murugan 1 hour later
Brief Answer:
HIV is a well manageable disease.

Detailed Answer:
HI,
Welcome to HealthcareMagic.
Thanks for posting your query.

Please write more about you. Your age, whether married or single, your sexual activities etc. These will help to alleviate your fear against HIV. HIV is not air born or water born infection or transmitted through just a casual contact.

It can be transmitted only though 4 ways:

1 SEXUAL TRANSMISSION (All types penetrative sex)
2. Infected blood transfusion
3. Sharing of sharp objects like needles
4. From infected mother to her baby (in uterus and through breast milk)

It can be well treated, no longer life threatening and the life expectancy is almost same like that of a person without HIV.

So nothing to get panicky about HIV. Feel free to ask further.

My daughter had an abortion seven weeks ago and is still bleeding and clotting. She has been to her gynocologist with these issues but still is having the problem. She had an ultrasound and blood work done to see if she was still pregnant or had pregnancy tissue left in her uterus. The doctornsaid she is fine and the bleeding will stop. Some times it stops but when least expected she will bleeds through her clothes profusely. Her tampon comes out and so does large clots with bright red blood. It is not her period! She is seeing her doctor tomorrow for more answers to this issue. Could there have been damage to her uterus during the abortion? I think her doctor wants to do an abalation? /D&C? Do you think this is the answer or do you have any other recommendations. She can t live a normal life at the moment because of this excessive and unpredictable bleeding. Thank you for your help.

Hello. I m 62, my periods stopped 16 years ago, and I ve had a fairly easy menopause, apart from a bit of flushing. My health is good qnd I normally have good energy. But these last few days I have had a period type discomfort, a sort of low-level pain. Not the excrutiating cramps as in the first day of the period, but that yucky sensation around the uterus/ lower back/ bowel area that women get as the period is approaching. Thanks
