« Last post by papucho on Today at 06:17:51 PM »
Hola sr. Andy Velez. Le escribo porque hace unos días tuve un encuentro con un muchacho desconocido, con el cual tuvimos relaciones sexuales. Yo fui el activo y use condón en todo momento. Pero le practique sexo oral (besos en el ano - rimming) en varias ocasiones. Cree que esto fue un riesgo y debo hacer la prueba. estoy muy asustado. el me dijo que no tenia nada pero yo sigo preocupado. Por favor ayúdeme

Estoy infectado? / Re: preocupado por besos con sangre

No tenia un riesgo.  El VIH es tan fragil a transmitirlo desde esa moda.  Es solamente durante la copula sin un condon que sera un riesgo.

Am I Infected? / Re: Threw up on PEP.
« Last post by JimDublin on Today at 05:12:35 PM »
Hi

No after 12 hours it will have been absorbed into your system, do not double dose.
If you are sick ? please consult your Doctor.

Kind regards

Jim

Am I Infected? / Threw up on PEP.
« Last post by Davidp1395 on Today at 05:05:38 PM »
I have recently been under PEP for my 4th day now. I took atripla and zidovudine around 5:30am and I was eating around 4:30pm (almost 12hours later) and threw up right after eating. Do I have to retake the dose? I'm a bit scared that this affected my treatment.

Living With HIV / Re: Everyone is gay here?
« Last post by CaveyUK on Today at 04:56:54 PM »
Everyone here is gay?

Not the case. There are plenty of heterosexuals as well as bisexuals and every shade inbetween.

HIV doesn't discriminate and whilst historically in the western world it has impacted the gay community most, this is changing over time. HIV certainly isn't a 'gay' disease now.

Many people living with HIV marry and have children these days too. Quite often with partners who are HIV negative.

I Just Tested Poz / Re: NewChallenge, New Era
« Last post by CaveyUK on Today at 04:50:16 PM »
it's still a recommended first line medication, it hasn't been downgraded

and it's about $3000 less per year

we can disagree

The OP is from Australia. I'm not sure what the cost differential is over there. A lot will depend on the deals the drugs companies make with the health services in that region. (On an anecdotal point, although not approved in the UK yet, the TAF-containing drugs are being sold to the NHS at cheaper prices than the TDF-containing drugs, at least initially. I think this is common practice to get an uptake on new drugs).

I don't think anyone would suggest that Stribild isn't a great drug. But IF there is a direct choice between that and Genvoya, I don't see why anyone would steer towards the former. Certainly on clinical grounds. If the decision is financial then of course that is a different story...
