Estoy infectado? / Re: Sexo sin proteccion
« Last post by Julian Martinez on Today at 06:54:14 PM »
Hola Andy buen dia, ya fui al medico. Me hicieron chequeo general y todo perfecto, lo unico que me vio mal fue mis encias inflamadas, ya no presento mis amigdalas hinchadas ni tampoco desde el lunes he tenido dolor de cabeza. Mi dentista ya me habia enviado unos farmacos para tratar el problema de las encias asi que el medico no me receto nada para eso. Tambien me hicieron el examen de sangre para el cuadro hematico y ya tengo los resultados. Mis globulos blancos estan en 8620 (4500-11000), linfocitos 25 (20-45 el promedio normal segun los rangos de mi centro de salud), monocitos 12 (2-9 este es el unico resultado que tengo elevado) y 276000 plaquetas (150000-450000). Con estos datos que te doy me gustaria que me dijeras si puedo estar tranquilo respecto al tema del VIH ya que me preocupa que mis linfocitos estan un poco bajos pero dentro del rango normal, creo que es debido a la infeccion que tengo en las encias. Gracias y espero pronta respuesta.

Lorenzo, la evaluacion aqui siempre es pensando que la otra persona es el VIH positivo.

Adelante con su vida sin dudas.

Si vuelves otra vez con mas drama unnecesario vas a ver su acceso aqui bloquado.

Su problema no es el VIH. Su problema es su culpa sobre sus actividades sexual.

Muchas gracias Dr andy Velez! Que increíble labor que realizan! Voy a poder dormir tranquilo y a disfrutar de mi familia nuevamente. Sólo una última pregunta. La evaluación de los riesgos se hace suponiendo que la pareja es vih positivo con alta carga viral,no?

No problem.

If you are Dublin based there is a HIV peer support group.
They do cinema, walks, events and monthly drinks/night outs etc. The next monthly drinks is tomorrow night i think, Ill be going. 

On https://www.meetup.com just look up Plus-friends-Dublin
