Vivir con el VIH / Re: Colombiano, recién diagnosticado.
« Last post by Med28 on Yesterday at 09:06:15 PM »
Bueno muchachos ya ha pasado un mes y medio desde mi diagnóstico, ha sido un tiempo de asimilar ésta situación e intentar tener la mejor actitud frente a la misma.

Fui al infectólogo antes de lo previsto pues creó que lo mejor es empezar el tratamiento pronto,  me recetó Efavirenz  y Kivexa (abacavir + lamivudina), lo empezaré a mitad de Septiembre. 

Con respecto al tratamiento y respondiendo tú inquietud Lifedancer, en Colombia  tu Eps (Entidad Promotora de salud) cubre los gastos del tratamiento, hasta el momento me ha ido bien  y me han dado apoyo en todo sentido.

Un saludo para todos y seguimos en contacto.
Am I Infected? / Re: Unprotected sex and 4th gen HIV RAPID TEST ACCURACY
« Last post by dudefromSG on Yesterday at 09:00:45 PM »
ok I understand. so my results are very encouraging and the odds of me coming out of this is very well in my favor?

Could I go and get tested again after 3 more weeks instead which makes it 7 weeks in total from the exposure. As far I know, a 7 week negative results is unlikely to change?

I Just Tested Poz / Re: just tested positive

Hey if you can afford isentress, stay on it, rather than atripla, or generic atripla. that is my personal recommendation.

Why do you need to go to london for an HPV test and what has HPV got to do with anything, actually?

Are you gay? In Europe and USA, many gay men have HPV, both HIV- and HIV+ guys.

Hello.  Sorry you got the virus.

Just to reassure you that your VL will be taken in charge by today's medications. 

I had viral loads in the millions for a few months after seroconversion and started medicine and it worked, just like the doctor assured me it would.

Also you will get an analysis of your strain of virus and the doctor will probably recommend a combination that is correct for you.  So it's fine to read about the different molecules available but you are don't need to be an expert. 

Off Topic Forum / Re: Facebook makes YOU sadder!
« Last post by gulfcoastFL on Yesterday at 07:59:30 PM »

Sometimes yep it does.
It is a very "active" social media platform but not one where I will be open about my status. With some mobility (and money) limitations it would appear I don't want to be engaged in life. I do but the vast majority of fb's have no clue what + life is like.  With health, mental well being, family situations, money again, Dr visits Facebook I have found sometimes is more of a stressor.

I try focusing more on local asp's support groups and trying to make the best of those ( another topic altogether )!

If FB had a poz following, that would be great.  But, annominity.  After 23 years poz I'm still in the closet to most, out of self-preservation.  :-)

OFF TOPIC.,....... Any "where's every from"  threads lately?  Me, Tampa Bay area.
Best wishes everybody!

Insurance, Benefits Programs & HIV / I think my HIV nurse is misinformed
« Last post by thomasgrn on Yesterday at 07:33:22 PM »
According to her, all I have to do to get health insurance is send the state the bill and tell them when to pay it. I have a platinum Obama plan that I love. Has anyone heard of such a thing?

I am sure she means well

Estoy infectado? / Re: ¿Existe riesgo en esto?

Sexualmente solamente la copula vaginal y anal sin usando los condones son riesgos confirmados por el VIH. Tocando/frotando la vagina no son riesgos. Solamente penetracion sin un condon es un riesgo.

No puedo ver un riesgo verdadero en su cuenta o razon para probar por el VIH.
