Rare Case Of Female-To-Female AIDS...[Pic]


Thanks


US health officials have published details of a rare case of suspected female-to-female HIV infection.

A 46-year-old woman "likely acquired" the virus during a six-month monogamous relationship with a HIV-positive woman
in Texas, said the Centers for Disease Control (CDC).

She was infected with a strain that had a 98% genetic match to her partner's.

The virus can be transmitted when bodily fluids come into contact with cuts, abrasions and mucus membranes.

"In this case, the discordant couple [one HIV-infected partner and one uninfected partner] routinely had direct sexual contact
without using barrier methods for protection - that involved the exchange of blood through abrasions received during sexual
activity," the CDC said in summary of ta weekly report.

The originally uninfected partner is said to have had a history of heterosexual relationships but none during the past 10 years.

She also had none of the other HIV exposure risks, including intravenous drug use.

Her partner, a 43-year-old woman, had stopped taking antiretroviral drugs in 2010.

...Very rare that it happens this way. I didn`t think it could without having to really work at it. Shows what I know.

I'm surprised it`s not more common.

It isn't really terribly surprising but it is a low-probability event. Given sufficient time and numbers, though, even the unlikely can be expected to occur. No need for a punch in the mouth, though. Think about, as a simple possibility, digital intravaginal stimulation of the uninfected woman by an infected woman who happens to have a cut on her finger, especially in this case where the infected woman stopped taking her meds allowing her viral load to increase, and you have all you need for viral transmission.

I think that, actually, given the statistics, it *is* kinda surprising. Transmission in a monogamous, female/female sexual relationship *is* pretty highly unlikely. Most of those relationships, of course, don't involve punching one another in the mouth, though, so, yeah, I guess didn`t consider that part, patchouly.
