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

Detailed Answer:
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.

Hello, I was on Birth control( Ortho tri cyclen) for about 3 months and i stopped taking them a few days into the last pack. 2-3 Days later i had dark brown spotting and then 2 days after i had a full period that lasted 5 days. i had a heavy flow during these days (5/5- 5/9). Last week I ve been cramping and for the past week and a half i have been extremely fatigued. Not to mention my constant urge to pee all the time when I ve barely had much fluent intake. My uterus feels heavy and cramps come and go. Ive taken several at home hcg strip pregnancy tests and all were negative. What could this be?

I had a c-section 10 months ago. About three months ago I was having weak, fatigue , constipation, severe bloating , nausea, and urge to urinate. Had cat scan and all blood work came back fine. However they took my gallbladder out just cause they saw stones. I was then sent to my OB and she did exam and ultra sound of uterus and all was fine. At that time I was put on Metronidazole and began to feel normal. Now two months later after my period ended a few days later I had they symptoms appear again. Some days are worse than others.This time I also formed thrush in my mouth, and I have had brown stringy discharge for 8 days. It may help to know that in the last 28 months I have had 2 c sections and a gallbladder removed. I am at a total loss. I have been healthy my entire life. I am also 41 years old. Thank you for your time.

4 weeks ago I had a hysteroscopy and laporoscopy under general anaesthetic . I had some endometriosis on the left side and this was removed. However, they also discovered that my left ovary has fused to my bowel. I will be seeing the consultant again in the new year, but just wondered what problems/treatment is likely to occur. My GP said Don t worry, we ll sort it out when it starts causing problems .
