Getting HIV and AIDS advice on JustAnswer


The qualified medical Experts on JustAnswer regularly respond to HIV and AIDS questions like:


  • Is it safe for me to kiss a man with AIDS?
  • If a woman has untreated HIV, and she has unprotected sex with her boyfriend, can she give it to him?
  • Will an intact condom, regardless of condom brand and quality, protect from HIV risk?
  • How often should I get tested for AIDS?
  • If you go to have regular blood work done, but not an HIV test, can the doctor still detect if you have HIV with just a regular blood test due to your blood count?

To give you the best advice, the medical Expert will need some information. You should be ready to answer questions such as:


  • Have you noticed any recent changes to your skin?
  • Do you have frequent infections?
  • In general, how has your health been lately?
  • Have you seen a doctor about this yet?
  • What medications are you taking?

With this information, you'll be ready to have a constructive session with the Expert.
