I Just Tested Poz / Re: ARV access in European
« Last post by JimDublin on Today at 02:20:34 AM »
btw jim, my doctor dare say like that because she had patient who continue his studies to Europe with the help of a scholarship

I see, well maybe you can share with her that Europe is kinda complex when it comes to this. :)
Sr. Andy que tal? Bueno me hice la prueba y gracias a Dios salio negativa. Aproximadamente 7 semanas despues del PEP. Es favotable verdad?
When I switched to  PI , it didn't make me hornier and still don't notice any difference in horniness, except that I have less of a sexual urge, but I believe it has to do with reaching my mid 40's.

My friend has sexual addiction mostly due to meth.  he has been to rehab and still has relapses from time to time.  Frankly I don't get it since it's not an addictive withdrawal thing like opiods or heroin, but I guess it makes you extra hotmi

After seeing what meth to my friend, I happily turn it down if ever offered to me. I don't ever want to know what it feels like.  I could easily be hooked on it, so I wont even give it a try.  Regular sex and horniness got me into enough trouble as it is.
Estoy infectado? / dudas de estar infectado

buen dia a todos

para empesar les voy acontar mi historia en noviembre del ano pasado tuve relaciones afuera de mi matrimonio con una mujer que conoci por internet fue sexo oral (recivi) y sexo vaginal SIN CONDON.

la pesadilla comenso a mediados de diciembre mi esposa me hablo que le habia salido un fuego labial  a lo que yo conosco como herpes tipo 1 ,
en ese momento me senti muy mal por que pense que lla le habia pegado algo
entre en preocupacion  sobre que otras cosas podia tener o que me habia contajiado
aquella mujer ,
empece a sentirme muy mal (dolor de garganta , palpiteos, dolor en el pecho,diearrea,dolor en las acsilas,ataques de panico,flemas constantes baje como 15 libras de mi peso normal,y una lengua blanca que asta orita no se me quiere quitar y tambien mi esposa se a sentido muy mal con algunos de los mismos sintomas
en este tiempo me e echo pruevas de STD's todo negativo menos herpes tipo 1
me he echo pruevas a un mes dos meses usando una de cuarta generacion (HIV COMBO AG/AB EIA) tres meses y cuatro meses y medio todas negativas usando el test INSTI hiv1/2 hecha en canada la que te usan unas gotas de sangre  y varias ora quick home test.

lo que pasa es que fui con mi doctor para que me alludara con mis sintomas y le esplique todo lo que habia pasado  y me dijo que la pruevas conclusas era a los 6 meses no a los 3 meses .

la verdad es que tengo miedo de hacerme la ultima prueva tengo mucho miedo en haber contajiado a mi esposa tengo mucho miedo en perder mi familia por una estupides mia me siento muy mal que pienso cada minuto del dia en esto aveses pienso que es un castigo por aberle sido infiel a mi esposa.

lo que quisera saber si a halguien le ha cambiado sus resultados despues de cuatro meses?

muy raro que los mismos sintomas mi esposa y yo

si alguien esta familiarisado con estas pruevas?

o alguien que me de una opinion en mi caso?

(me pieso hacer la prueva a los 6 meses aqui pondre el resultado)

gracias por su atencion y disculpen mi espanol no es muy bueno!!!!

Am I Infected? / Re: Infection with Herpes. What about hiv?

Protected intercourse is not a risk and you have no need to test over this incident.

Ann is taking time away from the forum.

1.Would it change the risk if i already had herpes but unoticed?

2.if vaginal secretions or cum from the girl were massaged into my urethra using the wipe still no risk?

3.absolutely no need to test?

Thanks for the support

Andy & joe

One more question...Where is Ann?

You cannot get HIV from eating food, as that is not how HIV is transmitted.

The risk factors for HIV are ...

Sharing IV drug needles immediately after use.
Unprotected anal and vaginal sex.
Mother to child during or shortly after birth.
Very specific health care situations.

Use condoms for vaginal and anal sex consistently and correctly and you will avoid HIV infection, it is that simple.

Questions About Treatment & Side Effects / Re: adherence question !
« Last post by BKKKevin on Yesterday at 09:58:40 PM »
Thanks!! Obviously I can't do math lol. Oh yay yes it is one pill a day so even in theory 90 isn't bad. But yes I think it was extra meds considering how I track my meds. Plus complera req a meal which is breakfast in my case. I always take it after.

Yes given you initially did not connect the 3 extra pills the pharmacy gave you to your 3 extra pill count - I would say you can't do math either ;-)...

Hi Andy. Thank you for taking time to advise me. I am nervous because I had canker sores in my mouth which might make it high risk for contract something... Also I had reminded of another situation happened also on that time:

I went by a street stall and bought a turkish kebab. I ate the kebab, but later I was shock to remind that the man rolled the kebab using his bare hands, not any gloves. I was having some oral canker sores on my tongue and mouth, and sometimes I got bleeding gums while chewing. The kebab stall and the man look a bit unhygienic (sweating, tatoos etc.,) and I am afraid he got wounds/cuts from his hands that leaves bloods on the kebab while he was rolling it. And when I ate it the blood might expose to my mouth sores and even my bleeding gum while chewing this... It was dark in the evening so I did not open the whole kebab to check for bloods or any fluids outside and inside and I know it's a terrible mistake. Could you please advise me the man left hiv positive blood or fluid on the kebab and I ate it with my mouth of sores and bleeding gums while chewing, then is this high risks ?....

Thank you for any of your kind help...
