Hi there PTK3,
Hey buddy how's things going? I re-read you post today and have been thinking of you. Just want you to know I'm intested in hearing where your story goes if you want to share. I've been bouncing between optimistic and dark places.
Sony caves. The terrorists have one. MERICA

Su respuesta me tranquiliza demasiado, aunque todavía me quedan estas pequeñas dudas:
-Es muy común y fácil que se rompan los condones, o si son muy seguros?
-Usted conoce algún caso que alguien salga Positivo por una rotura de condón?
-Sabe de algún caso de infección de VIH por una sola situacion de riesgo (condón roto)?

You people are so fucking glamorous.
So even if vaginal fluid (as in the handjob) or spit (as in the bite) makes contact with the penis or cuts on the penis you still say no risk?
HIV is a fragile hard to transmit virus . Once HIV leaves the human body small changes in temperature and PH levels damage the virus and render it unable to infect and this is why sexual fluids are not infectious for HIV once outside the body .
Another reason why vaginal fluids outside the body are not a risk for transmission this way is having hiv present in the first place. 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. I have yet to discover one shred of evidence (and believe me, I've looked) that shows this lubricating fluid to have any more hiv present than other bodily secretions such as saliva, sweat or tears. Saliva, sweat and tears are NOT infectious fluids.

Also, if you compare full gay marriage rights between the US and Europe (and no, Western Europe isn't "Europe") the adjust for population totals as a % of the total, you'll see that actually the US is currently more liberal on the issue by far. True, a lot of countries have civil unions but that's not equal status. It amazes me that a place like Germany only has civil unions, instituted in 2001 and hasn't moved further on the issue.
In fact, if you look at "the Americas" as a whole the entire Western Hemisphere is far ahead now on this issue.

Yo entiendo pero no puedo ver un riesgo verdadero en su cuenta. Pero si estas quedando preocupando por supuesto puede probar solamente por su paz mental.
No se como puedo a ser mas claro que en mi comentaris previos.

I'm nervous. My general doctor said I am still anemic and my cbc levels were low. I don't know what my cd4 or vial load is yet. My VD a few months ago was 70.
I've only have had hiv for 1 year now, but im reading studies that I can be anemic because it's getting worse and it's not good news
