Estoy infectado? / Re: Tengo algun riesgo

Lin, es una norma aqui por los miembres a escribir siempre en el mismo hilo. Sus inscripciones estan juntos aqui ahora. Por favor escribe solamente aqui.

Ahora su pregunta nueva...

Estas preocupando innecesario. El VIH es un virus muy fragil. No puede transmitirlo fiable en la moda en su cuenta. Es innecesario a probar. Adelante con su vida.

Estoy infectado? / Re: Dedo herido en masturbación.

Entonces las heridas nos son un riesgo. A pesar de haber tenido contacto con fluidos y sangre? Es increíble la mala información que se publica en la red y que se enseña a diario. Siempre creí que era terriblemente peligroso. En cuanto a la boca, un labio roto o una mordida a si mismo que ocasiones lesión interna, ocasiona peligro en el sexo oral? O definitivamente solo la copula es el riesgo? Y una última cosa... Que dos chicas se masturben entre si, puede llegar a representar peligro, si comparten fluidos en el proceso? Quiero decir, dedos untados de fluido de una en la otra.

If you are to continue to be sexually active then a regular test for all STI's are advisable. Keep yourself and you partners safe at all times.

Please read the lesson here on how HIV is and is not transmitted.

HIV is a very fragile virus that is damaged immediately when outside the host, where changes in temperature, moisture level and pH, alter the HIV rendering it unable to infect.  It does not survive in towels or on surfaces.

You should ask your doctor for an STI screening, as they can advise you best.

Am I Infected? / Re: Woman- vaginal sex condom half slipped
« Last post by Joe K on Yesterday at 07:36:23 PM »
As long as the head of the penis was covered by the condom, it is not a risk.  It does not matter that it rode up the shaft, as long as the head was covered.

Wesley  ,  concerning  Egrifta  being  generic.....  do  hold your  breath  the product  ahs been sold to a different  company  and is  closely controlled by them... it is  very  complicated  to  produce  and the  new  company  took  over  year  to  produce it  for  sale...   I had  usd it  from the  Original supplier   worked  great  once it became  avail  this year  got on it  again   been 3 months  and  slowly  getting rid of  the  "hard fat"...seems  slower than the  first time... fortunately my insurance pays  with   me only  doing a small copay (  ins=  $2400  me=  $20 ) per month  I know  many  insurance   companies  dont  allow it all   or have  ridiculous  copays  of  30%  if you can  find a way  to get coverage  I  can tell you it  does  work   I know the  company has a  program  for the uninsured  and  underinsured   try  contacting  them      844-347-4382

good luck 

Off Topic Forum / Re: California is Running Dry

I haven't followed this story too closely, but just seeing the headlines is alarming, as someone who cares about the environment. I hope people will start really conserving water when & where possible, not sure if this idea has been looked at..but..due to California's location right on the west coast & tons of area bordering the Pacific Ocean, how about the feasibility of building de-salinization plants & cultivating that as a new resource for usable water? Like a public works program like we had in the 1930s, back when big things seemed to get done as opposed to now. Something's going to have to be done, the climate models I've seen suggest a horrendous drought the likes of which the West hasn't seen for hundreds of years, for the next century or so. I hope a solution can be found.
Off Topic Forum / Re: Indiana...Now Not Serving Sense With Anti-Gay Law...
« Last post by RobbyR on Yesterday at 07:16:24 PM »
It's the worst kind of prejudice & hate disguised in old white-haired bitter old white men who apparently have major penis issues because they constantly seem to obsess over how lgbt people are somehow infringing on their freedoms. It's not just discriminatory, it's psychotic.

How exactly are they going to enforce this? Are they going to refuse service to someone because they "look gay" I mean how stupid can Indiana be? If someone dared to refuse me service in a public business on the grounds of them claiming they can't serve a gay person, I'd slap a lawsuit on them so fast & call the news outlets & ACLU so fast their head would spin.

Let's call this what it is, it's an attempt at a repeat of Jim Crow laws in another awful, not-so disguised suit.

I happen to be a spiritual person and fervently believe in God but I am openly gay also & believe we should love everyone regardless of any superficial things like sexual orientation or skin color. It's just dumb & has to stop.
