Importance of the Screening

Screening of the HIV test is the only way to find out if a person is infected with HIV virus. The reason behind the screening of HIV test if in doubt as the symptoms show up very late in a person’s body. It can take years for the symptoms to appear in most of the cases.

There are various myths surrounded the HIV disease is due to lack of proper knowledge and information received by everyone. Clear your doubts by knowing that HIV virus do not spread through touch, sweat, tears, saliva and pee.

HIV is only transferred from one person to another in fluid form. When the fluid comes in contact with the mucous membranes of an uninfected person, there is risk of developing HIV virus.

The fluid comes in contact through
  • Blood
  • Pre-seminal
  • Semen
  • Rectal
  • Vaginal
  • Breast milk

Besides, the transmission of HIV virus might also occur via broken skin of an infected person and with the usage of infected needles or syringes.

Common myths associated with HIV which are not true are :
  • Hugging, kissing and shaking hands

    The HIV virus is not transferred from an infected person through hugging, kissing and handshakes. Hence, by touching an infected person, you will not get infected.

  • Breathing the same air around the infection person

    It is wrong to believe that if you breathe in the air from an HIV infected person, the virus will be transferred to you. It is not true, because HIV is not an air-born disease.

  • Sharing kitchen utensils

    Most of the people believe that by sharing a plate of food or serving an HIV infected person in your kitchen utensils will transfer the disease. HIV is not transferred through food and utensils.

  • Drinking water from a fountain

    Many people avoid drinking water from a public water fountain to avoid coming in contact of any disease like HIV. People don’t get infected through public water booths as HIV is not water-borne disease.

  • Usage of exercise equipment’s at the gym

    Even an HIV infected and a non HIV infected person, both can go for a gym workout session without any worry. HIV is not transferred with the touching of the gym equipment’s.

  • Touching toilet seat, door knob/handle

  • Oral sex do not transfer HIV virus

    There is a big misconception on oral sex and HIV virus. Many of you believe that, HIV virus is spread through oral sex if your partner is HIV infected. It is not true as HIV virus only spread through unprotected sexual intercourse (via vaginal or anal section).

  • HIV infected couple can have unprotected sex

    If both the partners are HIV infected, and they opt for unprotected sex, there are chances that they might transfer the type of HIV infection to each other. There are different types of strains that exist in HIV virus. And it is not necessary that both the partner is infected with the same type of strain, instead they might be suffering from 2 different strains. Treatment for the presence of more than 1 strain in a person makes the treatment more difficult in terms of medications and limiting the spread of HIV virus to other parts of the body. Hence, always opt for protected sex (use condoms) to protect your partner.

Myths associated with HIV Treatment
  • Myth: One needs to take dozens of tablets every day during the treating of HIV.

  • Myth: Immediate medication for HIV treatment is not necessary.

    Fact: One needs to start with an immediate treatment as prescribed by the doctor. The treatment will include taking of medications named “antiretroviral treatment” in order to stop the virus from spreading to other parts of the body. This helps your immune system to recover by lowering the chance of spreading the virus to others.

  • Myth: If suffering from HIV, it will always end with AIDS.

    Fact: If you are diagnosed with HIV at the early stage you will not develop with AIDS. But it will depend on the approach of your treatment. Immediate treatment to HIV will stop the chances of developing AIDS. While if you are diagnosed with HIV at later stage, you might have the chances of developing HIV which still depends on your medication.

  • Myth: Once started with the medication treatment, one cannot spread the virus through sexual intercourse.

    Fact: Any HIV infected person once started with the medication treatment can still have the risk of spreading the virus to their partner. Though doctors believe that once continued your treatment for a longer period of time, it is little to no risk of transfer of the virus. But it is always advisable to use condom to protect your partner from being infected.
