Pantro, escuchame. No vamos a continuar una ronda interminable con Vd. sobre una situacion sin riesgo. Si continuas volviendo repetidamente sobre esta situacion vas a ver su acceso al foro bloquado por 28 dias.

Esperate a probar cuando yo creo su resultado sera negativo. No tengo mas que puedo decir a este punto.

Check with your physican
A few months back my doctor had me approved for Growth Hormones called serostim
They are to help me increase weight and body mass
I'll just say this they are working
I've gone from 123 pounds to now 146
But more importantly is the muscle and strength I'm gaining
I highly recommend
However they are very costly lucky my insurance covered it
I tested positive 10 months ago my most recent labs
I was 146 pounds
C-4 64
VL- 39
Now I know my c-4 is still very low but six weeks ago it was 32 so it is increasing and I'm feeling much healthier
I must say I'm dedicated to my Meds
And take the faithfully
But my biggest asset has been my attitude & outlook !!!

Am I Infected? / Re: Bad Idea
« Last post by Joe K on Today at 03:28:05 PM »
Both you and your wife had a risk and will need to test.  Guidelines are to test at 6 weeks from a possible risk and then at 13 weeks to confirm the results.  Your wife can test at any time and you can test, as long as 6 weeks have passed since you stopped taking Truvada.  None of the symptoms you mention are specific to HIV and the only way to know your status is to test.

You may also want to test for any STDs, as there are some that are much easier to contract than HIV.

Yah, yah, yah. Estoy esperando un resultado negativo por Vd. porque no tenia un riesgo. Punto.
Am I Infected? / Bad Idea
« Last post by talespin on Today at 03:06:46 PM »
So April 15th or so me and my wife did a 3 some with another man. His condom broke and we just kept going. He finished inside her and then I followed. I had a cut on my penis... I went on travuda for a month but was 10 hours late on taking it but was still given it... So during june I started getting weird symptoms
*yellowish white tongue that even flucanazole or nystatin cannot kill (did swap and no candidas
*sore throat and tongue
*I am usually a constipated guy but now I go 2 times a day
*Headaches constant

So basically I  know symptoms mean nothing in diagnosis and second I know stress could have made many of these. Just wondering first if these can be a possible begining and second when would my test show positive if I was infected 3 months or 6 due to the anti hiv medication I  took for that month. My wife has gotten the white coated tongue now also (hadn't had sex since incident until a few weeks ago) I have a brain injury due to a massive beating and I guess the best way to put it is I just want to know what I need to know, I became a hypochondriac, this year I thought I had cancer but had serious testing and was clear. I am now afraid I just caught something that will cause cancer in my lifetime and could kill me quite early (have high blood pressure and am 27) My life was finally coming together and then I did this one silly act and I now feel I could be toast by 40 due to this or sickness due to it. Sorry for my bad english it is due to my injury.

EL dia de mañana me haré la prueba de elisa a la 6 semana después del posible riesgo... he revisado algunos otros casos también con el mismo detalle que he mencionado , sobre la masturbacion con un dedo que tenia herida fresca el cual introduje en la vagina de una prosituta que esta infecctada y ella eyaculo en mi dedo,,,,,menciona usted que esta moda no es manera de infección de VIH , con tanta  experiencia en el tema USTED me puede asegurar que no tengo contagio alguno
Living With HIV / A Shout Out To... POZ
« Last post by michaelzalnasky on Today at 02:01:47 PM »
I was diagnosed August 2014
So I'm still learning
I just want say I'm new to the POZ Forums but I've been reading the magazine for several months I get free copies from my Doctors Office at Care Resource
But what I want to say is how helpful the forum is.
Reading others experiences
Seeing C-4 counts andViral Loads and reading all the different stories I say different but reading allot of them helps me realize what I've been through in the last 10 months and the health struggles early on are much like most of the experiences I'm reading about.
POZ Forums what a great tool you have become for me
So informative THNK YOU
