Living With HIV / Re: My syphilis won't go away.
« Last post by BoiBoy on Yesterday at 06:05:27 PM »
I appreciate you all responding.
As I said before, I haven't had sex since my last series of shots... so... I'm guess the penicillin didn't completely cure me.
I hope they are able to prescribe something that destroys all of the infectious bacteria in my body.
I want my clear, healthy skin again.
And I want to be able to resume my sex life.

Estoy infectado? / Re: Inseguro
« Last post by Andy Velez on Yesterday at 05:43:21 PM »
Estas preocupando innecesario. Nada en su cuenta fui un riesgo por el VIH. Y por supuesto sus resultados de probando son negativos. Sexualmente solamente la copula vaginal y anal sin usando los condones son riesgos confirmados.

Termina con sus dudas y adelante con su vida seguro de su estado negativo.

Leonard, no puede transmitir un virus que no tiene. Vd. estas el VIH negativo. Punto.

Tiene un resultado conclusivamente negativo. A mi me parece su problema es su culpa, no el VIH.

Adelante con su vida y termina con el drama.i

Are Doxyciclin pills as good as Penicillin? I can't stand the injections again.

Penicillin is easier, I wish I could just get a shot, but I took Amoxicillin (synthetic  form of penicillin)  once and was allergic to it.  The doctor said I can never take any antibiotic ending in "cillin". 

So I have to take Doxycycline which is 60 pills for a month.  Twice a day for 30 days, 12 hours apart, and they can cause diarrhea and no dairy products 2 hours before or after and limit exposure to the sun.

The only good thing is that you can take one the day before you go out to play and it may prevent you from getting some STDs.  I've taken Doxy for a few STDs.

Thank you both.

So you think there is no need to get my monthly RNA HIV PCR test?

6 partners is a lot, so I am nervous. Especially because I let one ejaculate in my mouth.

I went trough Syphillis treatment this year. The Penicillin injections were awfully painful. I hope I wont need them ever again.

I am sorry, but I read on several german websites the reinfections from the own body can happen. As far as I know reinfections are possible even without sexual contacts to other persons.
Who knows more please? :)

You can't "reinfect" yourself with syphilis.  You either have it or don't have it.  You get if from someone else.  If you have read that one can "reinfect themselves from their own body", I would stop reading that website.  If syphilis is "in your body" than you never got rid of it, thus it's the same infection.

Let's not cause panic here -- the OP either never fully cleared the syphilis infection or got another.  Based on what was been said, it is not clear to me which it is.  At any rate, it matters not what we say here -- get to the doctor, give an honest sexual history and go from there.  Perhaps you should be treated with something different this time.

Good Luck!!!

Do I need one last test? Blood test?

Stop making this harder than it is.  You are negative period.  All of your test results are negative. You are negative.
