“Please do not take offence but I do not see Africa or India born clients, this is advice from my doctor. I do see British Indian and Black men though.”

 

 

Is there any doctor around the forum have any explanation about it?

 Why don't you do a simple google search and see HIV/STD rates by country? Don't forget to come back and let us know what you discovered!

Although I never registered with the General Medical Council, I do dabble a little in the gynaecological field.

Having examined this ladies statement carefully I would say that my clinical judgement would be what we practitioners call botovocalitis or in common parlance “ talking out of your arse”

One of the questions they ask during a GUM clinic visit is "Have you had sex with anyone from another country" from memory I think they might specify areas considered high risk for STis and HIV(will remember to double check these specifics on my next visit).

 

Drs aren't always particularly tactful and I would guess the advice she has been given is that certain countries have a higher prevalence of HIV. Being born in a particular country doesn't necessarily mean anything, any male British citizen could visit Africa and omit to practice safe sex whilst behaving in a promiscuous manner, just as much as a man born in India might be vigilant with his use of condoms and limit his sexual behaviour.

The statistics on HIV and AIDs do show that there is a greater proportion of infected people from both Africa and India; however I think these are pretty dubious grounds for discrimination.

If you go by percentage of population, there is a higher rate of HIV in the US, Russia & Switzerland compared to India.

I've heard various statements Drs have supposedly made about various UK cities being the "HIV+ capital of the country". Not quite sure what it means, do people with HIV move there intentionally, is there a higher incidence of HIV transmission, is it something in the water, should a person not have sex in those places/with people from those places/with anyone at all?

The highlighted bits are the only sure way...................but why are we here? Because we enjoy sex with a variety of people and, knowing the risks, plus taking all appropriate precautions, we are happy to carry on.

 

Just avoid reading the Daily Mail and you will emerge unscathed.

Although it is possible that having sex with foreigners will cause house prices to fall.

When you give birth they ask if you came into anyone who has been to a "third world nation" in the last 6 months. If you say yes they whip the baby away and give it some kind of injection. I can imagine a doctor telling a woman if she asked that there is a higher rate of hiv possible in certain countries if that doctor is not actually up to date on the facts.

 

My son once had dibilitating headaches for a period of a year. My doctors prognosis wasnt that my son should be sent to a specialist or any such nonsense..oh no, my medical advice was that he was probably being bullied and he was imagining the headaches...seriously. Dr does not equal guaranteed good advice

TB is also still relatively common in Pakistan/Bangladesh and some African countries. Getting up close and very personal with someone with TB is not to be recommended.
