HIV is the Human Immunodeficiency Virus that causes AIDS. AIDS is Acquired Immunodeficiency Syndrome that is caused by HIV. It takes an average of 10 years to develop AIDS after HIV infection. With AIDS, white bloods cells from immune system drop below a certain level. They are different because HIV is a virus that enters the body and destroys the immune system and AIDS is the disease that develops as a result of the damage done to the immune stystem.
The immune system is the body’s defense again disease agents. When it works properly, white blood cells patrol the body and attack any organisms that should not be there. When someone get the virus that causes AIDS, their body cannot fight off infections that normal healthy people can. HIV antibody test is a blood test used to find HIV antibodies in the body.
A condom is a sheath that covers the penis and acts as a barrier method to collect the sperm and prevent it from entering the vagina, the mouth, or anus. Some are made of latex (rubber) while others are made of animal skin, such as lambskin. Latex condoms protect against HIV infections, lambskin do NOT. Spermicide is a substance that kills sperm. Some condoms come pre-lubricated with spermicide, while others you have to add it to the condom.
