The Strain continues to strain against credible characters and actions...  :o
Finally caught The Leftovers and I'm enjoying a number of the actors.  Yeah Justin Theroux sure is purdy too.

       I am greatly disappointed in the outcome of AMG 2014

Who is the "they" who are making you wait until Aug 7?
How is your access to medical care there?
Get the referral from the person in this thread, by the way.
Are you going to have a GP in addition to the ID specialist?
If your HIV doc won't see you, go to a GP.  Or the hospital.
Maybe you have something else - like the flu.
Estoy infectado? / Dudas y temor favor ayuda
« Last post by peixe87 on Yesterday at 09:58:50 PM »
Hola buenas noches quiero comentarles mi caso, en días pasados salí de fiesta y termine en un prostíbulo y mantuve relaciones anales y vaginales con una trabajadora sexual, a pesar de estar ebrio mantuve siempre el uso del condón para ambas penetraciones y no note que se hubiera roto el preservativo aunque no lo revise muy bien solo se que lo mantuve puesto durante toda la relación. Ademas bese su ano por unos minutos, estoy algo nervioso, aunque he leido que el preservativo previne la ets y hiv usado correctamente. Mis dudas son ustedes creen que deba probar?, este es un riesgo bastante alto? me preocupa la relación anal aunque estoy consiente que utilice el preservativo en todo momento. Me preocupa la duda de no haber notado alguna rotura ya que estaba ebrio.Para la relación vaginal cambie el preservativo y la penetre con el puesto en todo momento  vi cuando el semen quedo en el condón, luego me lo quite y me asusta pensar que al quitármelo algún resto de fluido tocara mi pene, POR FAVOR agradezco su ayuda estos riesgos son muy altos? Estaré muy agradecido si pudrieran darme algún tipo de orientación. Mil y Mil gracias por su valiosa atención.
yes, i felt rather tired but now its terrible. Today i had to get up early, i had to take two naps and one was like 3 hours long and now im super tired again.
Estoy infectado? / Re: Bastante desconsolado

Buenas Noches

Primero que todo gracias por esta labor que hacen, felicitaciones, bueno me encuentro bastante desconsolado y triste durante todo este año debido a dos situaciones de riesgo que he tenido.El pasado Enero tuve relaciones con una trabajadora sexual infortunadamente se me salio el condón, me realice dos pruebas una a los 42 días y otra a los 90 días del riesgo dando como resultado No Reactivo, Luego de dos meses tuve otra relación sexual con otra trabajadora sexual, me realizo sexo oral con preservativo, luego hubo penetración con condón, sin embargo lo revise y no recuerdo que se haya salido o roto por miedo a una ruptura que no pudiera percibir lo cambie y continué la penetración con un otro condón al finalizar lo retire y no recuerdo haberlo visto roto.
Acabo de presentarme a un trabajo y no me aceptaron sin darme razón alguna, lo cual me ha llevado a pensar en la posibilidad de estar con la infección.
El primer resultado es fiable?
Debo realizarme la prueba debido a la segunda relación?
Pude haberme infectado aun utilizando el condón?
Mis probabilidades de haberme infectado son muy altas?
Agradezco su amble tiempo y espero puedan ayudarme con orientacion ya que no tengo empleo y no he podido asistir a un medico en mi país es un poco difícil.
De nuevo gracias y le envió un gran saludo
