Am I Infected? / Re: help?
« Last post by Jeff G on Today at 10:07:28 AM »
Thank you very much Jeff G. You are always very kind to people. I have read many posts from you. Sorry for my broken english maybe i understand wrong. But vaginal fluids not infectous? So just wonder how heterosexuel man infect with hiv? I thought vajinal secretions have hiv.
And if its not private i want to ask beren. Just wondered. Beren also turkish girl name :)

Thank you for the kind words . Your English is great so no problem there .

The female secretion where hiv has been shown to be present is the cervicovaginal fluid. This fluid is actually a thick mucus that covers and protects the cervix.

The fluid a woman produces when sexually excited comes from the Bartholin's glands, located on either side of the vaginal opening. This lubricating fluid has been shown to not have any more hiv present than other bodily secretions such as saliva, sweat or tears. Saliva, sweat and tears are NOT infectious fluids.

It means that if present, HIV resides deep in the vagina in a mucosa and that the fluids a woman makes when excited come from a different place and are NOT the same . That is why vaginal fluids are not infectious and why masturbation, fingering and cunnilingus are not a concern in the transmission of HIV . Also ... small changes in temperature and PH instantly destroy HIV once outside the body due to its fragile nature . 

It really is safe to move on ... even if she was HIV positive it would not have mattered .

Living With HIV / Re: Dammit doc, listen to ME!
« Last post by Miss Philicia on Today at 10:07:07 AM »
How can someone (newly diagnosed less than six months) go to the hospital "lots of times" (how many exactly?) and it end up being diagnosed in an ER as anxiety and not be in the care of a mental health professional? I'm sorry but I fail to understand either how your GP/HIV specialist allows this or how the patient fails to demand a referral for same. Doesn't an ER dismiss you with follow-up instructions of some kind, especially after repeat occurrences?

I agree that you need a combination of prescribing psychiatrist along with a talk therapy strategy preferably using cognitive behavioral therapy.
