Ok sir i will follow these instructions. Just one question that came into my mind. I knw i am more curious about the fears of hiv. Can u please tell me why a lot of World population is infected. Means if its not easy to transmit. Then why 70 milliom of world population is infected.
2nd sir now 4 months spent very smooth. But now slight drynees and irritation is giving fear. Because already i go through yeast infection.

Brief Answer:
follow up .

Detailed Answer:
Welcome .

* The main reasons for a great number of world population with HIV infections

- Unprotected sex , commercial sex workers
- Vertical transmission from mother to fetus
- Use of unsterile syringes , needles by health care takers , quacks , drug
abusers sharing the same among hundreds
- Blood transfusions at remote places with improper checking standards
- Concomittant with other immuno compromised states as tuberculosis
& others which make them more vulnerable to that .

* Slight dryness and irritation can even be from simple weather change
also , but human mind is as such once the threat is there , then it
repeatedly knocks again and again .

Hope this clears your doubt .

Two days ago I started getting occasional sharp pain inside my right ear and occasional shooting pains in my head, also on the right side. My head feels a little tender in that spot. I also noticed some small, painless lumps on my jaw line under my right ear. I have no idea if they re related to the other symptoms. Any ideas what this could be?

My period is now 16 days late, and it is very regular...I use a menstruation tracker. I have been feeling sick to my stomach, getting headaches, severe backaches, and feeling dizzy. I did take a pregnancy test, but it was negative, so I wasn't too worried because I am on the pill (although there were probably a few times where I forgot to take it and then doubled up the next night). Suddenly today, I started getting severe sharp pains in my lower abdomen (mostly on the left side, but radiating to both sides) and severe pains in my upper abdomen, like I was going to throw up...I feel weak and started to have bright red bleeding, although it isn't heavy. all day today before the pain, I was having brown discharge that had stringy clots in it. I am debating on visiting the ER and wanted to ask your opinion.
