Estoy infectado? / Re: ¿Estare infectado?
« Last post by Andy Velez on Yesterday at 07:41:20 PM »
No es un riesgo porque 1) el VIH es un virus muy fragil y  2) los fluidos en la vagina que tiene el VIH es muy alto en el cervix y sus dedos no pueden tocarlo alli.

Adelante con su vida sin dudas, hombre.

Thanks!! Obviously I can't do math lol. Oh yay yes it is one pill a day so even in theory 90 isn't bad. But yes I think it was extra meds considering how I track my meds. Plus complera req a meal which is breakfast in my case. I always take it after.

Estoy infectado? / Re: Aterrado por posible infección VIH

OK. Tenia un riesgo en las situaciones cortos pero son muy bajos. Hace  una prueba a 6 semanas despues del riesgo ultimo. Si esa resultado sera negativo, (como yo estoy esperando), es muy probable sera negativo conclusivamente a 3 meses.

Probando por Vd. es basicamente para sera seguro de su estado negativo. En el futuro tiene a recordar usando un condon cada vez sin excepcion.

El VIH es tan fragil a transmitir en la moda de sus miedos.

Adelante con su vida, hombre.

I Just Tested Poz / Re: ARV access in European
« Last post by mecch on Yesterday at 07:30:48 PM »
hi feellas, i want to ask about the rules and the regulation of the HIV treatment in European, my doctor said to me that european give free ARV for the citizen and immigrant who has complete document, is that true ?
because i have plan to aply scholarship to european so i want to know about it, and please tell to me about hiv meds care in some european country

btw thx for the attention  ;D

Could you clarify what you goal is?  To earn a diploma in Europe?  To get better health care?  To permanently immigrate to a European country?

If your goal is a diploma, and you need a scholarship, then you have many challenges besides being HIV positive.  You need to get accepted by the school, qualify for a scholarship, and master the language of instruction.

Are you on top of meeting those challenges?  Don't put the cart before the horse.

Living With HIV / Re: What was your first CD4/Viral Load count?
« Last post by JimDublin on Yesterday at 07:30:47 PM »
*triumeq* sorry I think spell check did that ^^^^^

Hey!!! I just started on triune a couple days ago also!! Have u had by side affects? Mine I just threw up after my first dose like a hour after... The next day body aches nothing too bad! Now today is my 3rd time taking it.. I feel pretty good weird stomach feeling but nothing too bad, that I can notice so far... How have you been doing on it?

Dolutegravir is also part of the triumeq, Dolutegravir gives me shooting headaches now and then. Otherwise fine.

A few have commented on Triumeg: http://forums.poz.com/index.php?topic=58970.0

So far I have been doing good. Sometimes I wonder if I have side effects or its just my head playing games because I read so much about side effects. I don't think I've ever read about side effects of a medicine before. I started on 5/21/2014 (took for ever for mail order to come was supposed to be 5/14). The first day I felt a little nausea all day and had a pounding headache, by the 4th day I don't notice anything. I just feel normal, which I guess is pretty good. I've been taking it every night at 11pm and then go to sleep immediately after, so if anything happens right after taking it I haven't noticed. On the 3rd night I did have a crazy vivid dream that woke me up and felt like it really occurred, but that could have just been a coincidence.

Questions About Treatment & Side Effects / Re: adherence question !
« Last post by JimDublin on Yesterday at 07:16:25 PM »
How did you calculate 85% adherence ? I don't know how to calculate that lol

I would presume it's the X pills missed over the Y number of pills you had.
So let's say you had to take 1 pill a day for 30 days, and missed 3.
In that case 3 missed out of 30 would be 10 % missed i.e 90 % adherence. But that's a presumption.

Not that you should aim for 85% you should aim for 100% of course. :-)
And it could indeed be you had 3 extra on the refill. 

Yesterday I could not take my meds as I had a very bad case of food poisoning, I always aim for a 100% but stuff happens and missing a dose from time to time is not the end of the world as much as I try to always be 100% adherent.
