AIDS/HIV does have prevention methods. Let’s find out what they can be.

AIDS/HIV can be spread through sexual intercourse, so an obvious mean of prevention would be abstinence. But let’s get serious here- that’s not going to happen. So proctection, and contriception are integral for survival. Using condoms is an integral contraceptive in order to prevent pregenency, STI’s and the spread of HIV leading to AIDS. But there are many other ways that AIDS/HIV can be prevented.

Limitation of Your Number of Sexual Partners- The risk of HIV goes up when the number of sexual partners a peson has goes up. Long term relationships where both partners know the others sexual history are the best, as  both partners can trust eachother to be free of disease.

Not Sharing Needles- Sharing needles for drugs or even for tattoos can infect you with the diseas if the needles aren’t clean.

Condoms and Birth Control- Once again, these prevent the spread of bodily fluids, and ensure cleanliness and safety.

One of my favourite films from 2005, following a group of eight friends over the course of one year as they deal with AIDS/HIV and living in the peak of the infections.

What happens to the human body when it’s infected by HIV(human immunodeficiency virus) or AIDS (acquired immunodeficiency syndrome? Let’s find out.

Once a person has had the illness transmitted to them (see previous post on the causes of HIV/AIDS) it attacks and destroys the body’s CD4+ Cells-  cells that actually aid in the replication and cloning of HIV. Once HIV attaches to the CD4 cells which allows the HIV to travel inside, infect and destroy the cells, damaging and wrecking them in the process. Once these cells have been destroyed a persons immune system is shattered, and the individual is now without a properly functioning immune system.

The lack of protection in the body allows those with the illness to now be much more vulnerable to contract diseases and sicknesses such as cancer and pneumonia- as their body’s can no longer fight them off or protect themselves. These are signs that the illness has now progressed from HIV to AIDS.

This disease often leads to death,.

Who knew that three little letters could cause so much destruction.

What causes HIV/AIDS, the symptons and health issues of this disease. and what can be used to cure, treat and even prevent these diseases. First up- the causes of HIV ands AIDS.

AIDS is caused by a human immunodeficiency virus- namely HIV. What? AIDS is caused by HIV? You learn something new everyday. AIDS in itself though can be caused by the spread of HIV through  many things, including;

  • Sexual Intercourse– HIV can be spread when blood, semen or vaginal fluid is spread from one person infected with the disease to another uninfected person, usually by sexual contact. This is often experienced by homosexuals partaking in anal sex.
  • Sharing Needles– When a person infected with HIV shares needles with another unifected person (through drug or other uses) the virus can be spread from person to person.
  • Mother to Child– When a mother infected with AIDS/HIV gives birth to a child, often the illness is then transfered genetically.
  • Blood Tranfusions– In the past, through blood transfusions AIDS/HIV were both often spread by those who were unaware of the infection before proper testing of doners was put in place.

Coming up next time, the symptons and medical issues resulting from AIDS/HIV.

Love, peace and hair grease.
