Off Topic Forum / Re: Joining a gym, scared.
« Last post by LukasAtlPZ on Today at 12:34:05 PM »
Exercise will help with the self-esteem issues. Also, request your doc to test for Vitamen D, you might need to take a supplement.

I prefer locally owned gyms to the corporate giants. The business model is completely different. Local gyms are more customer focused. The corporate giants are more interested in the $$$.

Am I Infected? / Re: Bathhouse exposure freaking out

Hi,
I agree with Patrick's assessment, the virus is far too fragile to be transmitted in this manner.  If this is your only concern it is safe to move on.

Even Not knowing his status And cum possibly getting in my eye? And with Pep Not being warranted should I just test at my regular twice a year check up? This was my first time at a bathhouse and exploring my sexuality

Living With HIV / Re: Update on moi...
« Last post by crazyturns on Today at 11:29:29 AM »
I just discovered this thread. Can I say how glad I am that you're keeping all of your updates on the same thread, terpie82? As someone who was diagnosed this summer and still am adjusting to the implications of it all, it's sooooo nice to read your updates from years past up until now. It sheds light on how life can and does continue as normal, with many of the same highs (hello, PhD! ..and floral business!) and lows (sorry to hear about the recent split) that would be present irrespective of hiv status. While I know you're just living your life, documenting where you are is incredibly helpful for those of us who are having trouble imagining where this new path will take us. Thank you.

Sorry to hear you lost the BF over this, that's always rough but on the bright side it sounds like you have a plan of action in place and are moving on in life. Good stuff keep doing what your doing.  ;)

Greetings, sal:  sorry about your diagnosis, but glad you found this forum.

It sounds like you were on top of the infection from the outset, so minimal damage has been made to your immune system.  That is a very good thing, as is your well-founded optimism.

You will live a long and healthy life, so continue to live it as you are doing.

I look forward to your continuing contributions to the forum.

Welcome and best wishes to you!

I Just Tested Poz / My Intro (Extended Version)
« Last post by sal on Today at 11:01:19 AM »
Howdy, y'all!

I am a 30-year-old gay man. I tested positive for HIV in February 2016 during my 3-month follow-up after starting PrEP. I did not learn of my diagnosis until a separate follow-up in March. I did not experience any of the common symptoms of seroconversion, so my doctor thinks I may have started PrEP during the acute stage when my HIV tests were negative.

I played the waiting game in March while having all the common labwork taken. My initial documented viral load was 13,130 copies/mL. Genotype testing demonstrated an M184V mutation. In April, my doctor ordered another viral load test to get a true baseline before starting meds and it was 11,990 copies/mL.

I started on Triumeq and Prezcobix in April, and I was thrilled to be undetectable within a month, and I'm still undetectable as of my most recent labwork in July. Thankfully, I did not experience any common side effects when I started my meds. My doctor just switched me to Descovy and Prezcobix last week with a goal of simplifying down to one pill when the Prezista-based STR that Jansssen and Gilead are collaborating on comes out. 

I'm a pretty optimistic guy, and for the most part I'm handling everything okay now. I haven't made any drastic lifestyle changes because of being HIV positive. I'm just still living each day to the fullest like before. In the beginning, I kept myself busy with work and tried to keep my mind occupied when I first learned of my new diagnosis. That resulted in a breakdown in an almost two-year relationship. Losing my boyfriend hurt me more than my diagnosis, but I'm grateful for the time we spent together.

Thank you for taking the time to read my first post. I'm glad that we have this forum to support each other. Looking forward to chatting with everyone!

Am I Infected? / Re: Negative analysis after 3 months.
« Last post by JimDublin on Today at 11:00:19 AM »
Hi

Een soa-test is de enige manier om zeker te weten dat je geen soa of hiv hebt opgelopen.  Nu heb je HIV negatief uitslag gehad 3 maanden na het onveilige incident, dit resultaat is definitief .Punt.

Maar je hebt ook risico gehad voor andere SOA's en als je echt zeker wil zijn kun je het beste jezelf laten testen. (SOA-test) Tot jij en je man samen een soa test hebben ondergaan kun je nooit zeker zijn en dus raad ik condooms aan.

Jim

English summary.

You have tested negative 3 months past incident and tested negative, this result is conclusive. End of story.

However you have also had a risk for other STI's and should test and until you and your husband both test together for STI's including not limited to HIV I recommend using condoms.
