How is HIV / AIDS transmitted?

How is HIV / AIDS transmitted? Topic: Hiv case study answers
May 25, 2019 / By Haze
Question: Over the past 10-15 years that HIV / AIDS has become a worldwide epidemic, I've heard multiple "professionals" and "doctors" claim that HIV can not be transmitted by normal sexual relations: kissing, vaginal sex and oral sex. More specifically, they said that HIV/AIDS can only be transmitted by Anal Sex, explaining the high exposure of AIDS in the homosexual community. So, my question is, can HIV /AIDS transmit during "normal" sex. I understand that blood transfusions, sharing needles, being born with it, are all ways to get it, but that still doesn't clear up this one big question. Additionally, if you say it can be transmitted by normal sex, please reference a link on the Internet, study or case in which someone contracted the disease by "normal" sex. Answering this question might help countless people so, please answer with thought and care. Thanks.

The key here is that AIDS doesn't do well outside the body. It is therefore transmitted by bodily fluids such as blood and seamen. Anal sex is higher risk because it is easier for tearing of the tissue to occur, but under the right circumstances a person can contract AIDS from either vaginal, or even oral sex.

HIV/AIDS is spread through bodily fluids, most frequently blood, male seminal fluid, or female vaginal secretions. For transmission to occur, the infected fluid must enter the uninfected person's body through some kind of cut or opening in the skin or mucous membranes in the body. The virus can be transmitted at any stage of infection. You need not be symptomatic, or even know you are infected, in order to pass the AIDS virus to someone else. People are most infectious within the first six months to one year following their own infection, and then six to ten years later as their immune system becomes more suppressed _____________________________ Question Poster: Very good article here: http://www.medicinenet.com/human_immunodeficiency_virus_hiv_aids/page2.htm

Duh! HIV/AIDS is transmitted by body fluids, like sperm, blood and vaginal secretions. Try finding The Center fo Disease Control (CDC)'s website, or webmd.com.

I don't know what doctor would tell you that AIDS couldn't be spread by sex, because it can. AIDS is a virus that lives in your blood and bodily fluids. Contact with blood, semen, vaginal fluid or fecal matter can spread the virus because it lives in these fluids. Condoms reduce the risk of the tranfer by preventing contact with bodily fluids.

They are over 100 HPV types. 40 (CDC website) are genital and are found exclusively in the genital area and are STI because these HPV types are primarily acquired through vaginal and anal sex. Genital HPV types can be transmitted through oral sex and form hand to genital sex play with an infected person. Common warts are warts that affect other non genital area. Plantar warts are a common wart found primarily of the foot. The virus is common acquired through a micro-trauma or cut of the skin. When walking barefoot around a swimming pool, shared community showers, the boardwalk at the beach the virus particles shed from an infected persons foot and when you walk on this area the virus particle that was shed enters the little micro abrasions and starts the up-growth of skin tissue that contain the virus. A wart of the face can be spread to other areas of the face through shaving more auto-inoculation. They are 5 approved HPV test for screening the cervix.
