AIDS (Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome) is a chronic, probably a life-threatening state that is caused because of (HIV) Human Immunodeficiency Virus. HIV destructs your immunity power by obstructing the ability of your body to keep a control on the disease causing micro- organisms.
HIV is a disease that is transmitted sexually. It could also be multiplied by getting in contact with the blood that is infected, from the mother to fetus at the time of pregnancy, breast-feeding or childbirth. It takes a lot of time before you come to know that you have AIDS as HIV damages your immune system slowly.
This horrifying disease is incurable, but the infected person could preferably go with the medicines that could noticeably slow down the process of proliferation of the disease. These helping medications have condensed the deaths due to AIDS in a lot of developed countries. But HIV goes on annihilating the locals of Haiti, Africa and some parts of Asia more than any part in the world.
The risk factors for HIV/AIDS are as follows:
- Having Sex without Protection:
Having sex without proper protection is a severe cause of getting effected with HIV virus. The Anal sex is more perilous as compared to the vaginal sex. The percentage of risk gets increased if you have several sexual partners.
- An Additional STD:
Various sexually transmitted diseases construct open genital sores. These sores work as the sources for human immunodeficiency virus to enter inside your body.
- Using Nutritional Liquefied Drugs:
The individuals who make use of intravenous drugs over and over again share syringes and needles. This activity brings them in contact with the blood droplets of other people who might be infected with HIV/AIDS.
- Lack of Circumcision:
Studies point towards the fact that not having circumcision raises the danger for heterosexual circulation of HIV.
Most of the people who are infected with this virus develop the antibodies in the time period of not more than 3 to 12 weeks of the initial illness.
Till the present day, there is no vaccine found to put off this horrendous HIV infection and there is nothing that can treat AIDS completely.
By this statement, I mean to say that enlightening yourself about the facts related to HIV and keeping yourself away from any kind of activities that permit the infected fluid sources like semen, blood, breast milk and vaginal secretions to enter your body. Thus, one can defend yourself and also other people from this life taking disease.
