Thank you Joe. I truly appreciate your taking the time. I knew the answers but i needed that reassurance. Keep fighting the fight and saving the sanity of the worried masses and i sincerely believe that with your honesty and support the fight against hiv will be won. You guys are amazing. My best to you and yours and to all the other amazing folks on this site. And as i am on my last message, i would like to add to all those that reas through these posts, please listen to what these people say they know what they are talking about. Who could possibly know better? Much love and respect!!!
No apology needed and my point is that HIV is an equal-opportunity virus. The status of the person you are with, does not matter, only what you DO matters. If you protect yourself and we know how to do that and when protection is required, you can have a wonderful sex life. I'm also a gay man, who was married and cheated and you have a duty, not to bring anything home to your wife.
We are more alike than you will ever know. Keep yourself and your family safe.
Oh my gosh i am so sorry. I did not mean that to be insulting. I was referring to myslef as an idiot not that you guys think people on here are idiots and after rereading my post i should not have put in the loved one part. Again, i am truly sorry i did not mean to casue offense. I truly respect you guys and what tou do. You guys are amazing to dedicate your time for this. Please accept my apology.
You have not had a risk and whatever symptoms you are experiencing, have nothing to do with HIV.
Questions About Treatment & Side Effects / Re: I'm back on here after a 3-year absence..Starting Triumeq on Thursday« Last post by Cleardot on Yesterday at 11:40:24 PM »
I started Triumeq March 27. So far so good. It is the first and only medication I have been on. Mild headaches but they have gotten better each week.
What an insulting post. We do assessments for everyone, regardless of who they are, because we do not care, nor do we judge. Our goal is to educate people on the real risks of HIV infection, so people can make informed decisions and enjoy a healthy sex life.
I find it odd, that you ask to be treated as a loved one, but here goes. Oral sex is not a risk, but you already knew that fact. You have reliably tested negative and any symptoms you have, are most probably due to the guilt you feel for whatever. It does not matter to me that you have a family, what matters to me, is you did not have a risk, you are reliably negative and I have no further need to speak with you.
I need a shower.
Sir the reason m so scared is that i had a fever and sore throat For 3days but went away after taking a paractomal and antibotic though i usually get every seasonal changes but now i feel like 2 seeds under my jaw .it doesnt pain nor has a swell.,but i have a calf p
muscles pain and numbness on my lefthand so coild it be a ars symptoms??i had my exposure last decmber.
HIV does not survive for 10-20 seconds when outside the host. Changes in temperature, moisture levels and pH, alter the HIV leaving it unable to infect. Your had could be dripping vaginal fluid and it's not a risk. The fluid a woman produces when excited is just like tears, perspiration and saliva, they are not infectious for HIV.
I am seeking confirmation specifically for my situation. I have read through the forums and have a pretty good idea what the answer is going to be but i just need to hear it when it is specifically directed at me.
About 10 weeks ago I received oral from a sex worker. There was no condom used. I was not able to complete the process so to speak as i felt incredibly guilty. I have been married for many years and have never cheated on my wife before nor will i ever again. About two weeks later i started to feel a burning sensation when i urinated and a pressure in my stomach and testicles. I assumed ghonnorea(sp). I then made the mistake of searching the internet for my symptoms and of course hiv was immediately offered as a suspect. I then began the usual freak out and spent the next few weeks worried and distracted. I began to feel aches in the armpits, neck burning and pain, etc. I also started to be very aware of the lymph nodes in my neck and groin. I went and had an std urine screen and hiv blood test at 6 weeks. The hiv test was done with a small tube of blood and what appeared similar to a pregnancy test. They were all negative. It has now been 10 weeks and i am still having the neck pain and lymph issues. No fever no sweats no flu symptoms. So the question i have is this. Assuming i was a loved one and not some random idiot on the internet, would you say i am conclusively negative and do not need to be tested again? I have three children and a wife and i am more concerned for them than for my own health. I appreciate your advice and expertise. You guys offer an invaluable service in this age of internet hypochondria.
Sir but what fearing me most is that i fingered her deep inside her vagina and touched the deep inside of the condom the exposure to air was only 5-10 Sec ..so now m thinking the fluid that was deep inside her vagina is now in my hand which could poosibly carry infectious fluid.yet stil m not at risk sir??
