Questionaire on AIDS and Treatment For HS Biology
      05/27/07 06:50 PM

My name is Thomas Nesbitt and I am doing an extensive research project for a senior biology class on HIV/AIDS. I am looking for people preferably with AIDS, but if you just have HIV currently, it is perfectly fine. Any response helps. Please copy and paste these questions and fill them out. You may post them in the message boards or send them to

Thank you very much for your time,

HIV/AIDS Interview Questions

1. When did you first suspect that you may have been HIV positive?

2. What made you decide to get tested for HIV and what method of testing was used? How long did you wait before you got tested? Did you have a window period?

3. Do you know how you contracted HIV and when (Ex: needle, sex)?

4. What thoughts/emotions came to your mind when the doctor told you that you were HIV positive?

5. How long after the results of the test did you begin to acquire symptoms of AIDS?

6. What symptoms surfaced first and how did you treat them?

7. Do you have the full symptoms at this point to classify as AIDS?
