Well i got a few questions about hiv/aids.
Is it possible for the same blood type (for say O group) to get aids,no matter whether the person is O+ or O- and is it a problem if 1 person is O+ and the other is O- instead of the same?
Also,what's the difference between the + O group and the - O group. I read up abit about it,saying that O groups are immune to aids,but i think that was false info.
Also,if 2 people haven't had any sexual relationships with others before,is it somehow possible to get hiv or aids?
And incase 1 of the people does have HIV and do only safe sex,if they think about having a baby,does it mean that the other person will also get HIV and pass on to the baby too?
PS. if u're having oral with someone,in which cases may catch HIV?
Sorry for the nub questions :-|,didn't really pay attention in biology class.
anyways, Thanks in advance
Doesn't matter what blood type to pass the HIV virus.
+ or - An individual either has, or does not have, the "Rhesus factor" on the surface of their red blood cells. This term strictly refers only to the most immunogenic D antigen of the Rh blood group system, or the Rh- blood group system. The status is usually indicated by Rh positive (Rh+ does have the D antigen) or Rh negative (Rh- does not have the D antigen)
A baby can contract HIV from the mother, so it is possible for a virgin to have HIV.
If one of a couple has HIV, they could use artificial insemination to get pregnant and not pass on the HIV to the partner. Although there would be some risk trying to have safe sex, and the baby might contract HIV if the mother has it, although the baby contracting HIV can be averted.
If a pregnant woman is infected with HIV, she can transmit the virus to her baby during pregnancy, labour and delivery, or breastfeeding. Without treatment, around 15-30 percent of babies born to HIV-infected women will become infected with HIV during pregnancy and delivery. A further 5-20 percent will become infected through breastfeeding.1
Modern drugs are highly effective at preventing mother-to-child transmission of HIV. When combined with other interventions, including formula feeding, a complete course of treatment can cut the risk of transmission to below 2 percent. Even where resources are limited, a single dose of medicine given to mother and baby can cut the risk in half.
If you had a cut in your mouth, even a small on you were unaware of, you could contract HIV during oral sex.
It doesnt matter if their -O or +O you can get aids. The negative and positive is called the reagent. It lets thsuspect someone hase doctors know what kind of blood it will mix with. +O is the number 1 world wide. No blood type is immune to AIDS or HIV. You can get HIV or AIDS through sexual intercourse, blood, body fluids and even oral sex. Now to get it through blood or body fluids you have to have an open wound. If you suspect that someone has it or does have it wear gloves, protect open wounds and wash with a surgical soap. Yes HIV can be passed from mother to child while pregnant. If the child does not have HIV or AIDS when born but the mother does DO NOT BREAST FEED, it in breast milk as well. Condoms don't protect anyone drom HIV or AIDS. If you suspect some one has HIV or AIDS please infom them to see their doctor. I hope I have helped you.
Thanks for the answers,much appreciated
