How to proceed when you suspect infection?

  • Get an ELIZA test done at a laboratory after 12- 14 weeks of the suspected exposure. In an Indian set-up nothing can help diagnose AIDS before this. Meanwhile assuming that you are infected take care and do not infect others. (E.g. No blood donation, no unprotected intercourse, no pregnancy). 
  • If the test is negative - learn a lesson not to repeat the mistake.
  • If positive - get a repeat test done and if possible a Western blot.
  • If Western blot too is positive, not everything is lost. Get professional help at counselling centres. Contact the nearest Government hospital. Get advice as to the drug therapy to be started.
  • Lead a regular, hygienic and a fit lifestyle. [Healthy nutritious food, no vices]. Avoid stress. In short, avoid anything that can lead to an infection affecting the body. On the other hand, anything that boosts the body's general immunity helps.
  • Yoga, Relaxation, Meditation are said to help a lot.
  • Conquer fear.
High Risk Behaviour: More than one sexual partner (any sex)
  • Anal Intercourse
  • Drug addiction
  • Patient of STD's
  • Blood Transfusion Recipients

Having a healthy lifestyle prevents aids. A healthy and fit body boosts a strong immune system that in turn helps in preventing aids. Healthy food choices, regular exercises and proper hygiene are the way to go.

i am an american educated person. but, i feel that some of the words to describe the illness and in the article in general were to big and difficult to understand. i do not have a medical background and i am sure alot of other people reading this article don't either. simple wording, in terms that are easy to understand, i feel would be better.

thank you.
