buenas tardes!
Sr andy estoy a la espera de su respuesta disculpe por incomodarlo, le escribí lo siguiente.
Hola sr andy quiero consultarte lo ultimo...

Resulta que hace un momento hable con una amiga... el dia 22 de mayo 2016
En estuvimos un tiempo en una relacion.
la ultima relacion ue tvimos hubo un momento sin proteccion, la penetre  mas o menos 2 a 3 minutos.. Luego me puse el condón con el fin de no eyacular dentro de ella..
Ahora bn queria saber si en ese momento era riesgoso de que ella o yo adquieramos un vih bien sea por el.lado de ella o el mio..
Le hago esa pregunta por ella.hoy me.dijo que hace dos meses de este año actual en el trabajo le mandaron unas pruebas sifilis y vih por cosas laborales..
Y salio todo bn.. Ella esta sana..
Le pregunto por si ella se realizo las pruebas y todo le salio, quiere decir que yo también ya que tengo entendido uno l penetrar arroja liquido presiminal por ende si yo tuviera vih pues se lo hubiera contagiado.
Mi pregunta es: debo estar tranquilo y tomar esa prueba como parte de tranquilidad para mi también..
Si ella esta sana, yo igual..
Solo tuve 3 relaciones  mas después de ella y siempre con protrecion como debía ser.

Gracias mil gracias

Vd. puede usar cualquier prueba a cualquier punto desea porque no tenia un riesgo y es seguro su resultado sera negativo.

Termina con los miedos.  No tiene una problema con el VIH.

No se cual es su riesgo.  Ningunos de sus sintomas son el VIH especifico y son carente pertinencia pueden influir su resultados.

Es mejor a probar a 12 semanas por un resultado fiable y conclusivamente negativo.

Apologies for not posting for so long.  I just don't come to the forums much these days -- pretty much visit with folks on Facebook.

I'm doing o.k.    On these questionnaires at doctors' offices that I fill out, and they ask "how would you rate the overall state of your health today?"    I check FAIR.

Nothing has changed much for me; I still rely on my Gastric tube for everything, both nutrition and hydration.   We buy those large cans of gatorade mix, because I go through so much of it.  For the first part of this year, I was able to swallow a little water, and even eat things like pudding and jello.   I've lost that ability now, and cannot even take a sip of water (without having a coughing fit).   So I rarely even try anymore.   It's just not worth the effort.

I've reverted back to some "90's AIDS behaviors" again.....mainly, adult diapers.
Yes, I now have to sleep in one.   At least I don't have to wear one during the day.  But at night, I just have no control.   People in my ENT Support Groups say it is sometimes common for this to happen to people who live on a strictly liquid diet.   It certainly chips away your dignity.

Layne and I are handling everything that comes at us; we may not handle it very well, and our house is certainly not the orderly neat home I once kept.....but we get by.   We do our best to manage our limited energy.   If we feel good, we try to get a few things done.   If not, we don't worry about it.

I still have a lot of bitterness and resentment, that my health care team allowed a lump on my neck (which we pointed out and complained about for over a year) to reach Stage 3 malignancy before they did anything about it.   But like so many other things in my past, what's done is done, there's no going back. We've stopped going to church (I can no longer take communion) and I guess you could say that we have both questioned our faith.   Pretty much the only person or thing we can depend on is each other.

I hope everyone is doing well; so happy that Jeff is settled and doing great in Palm Springs.   We miss him being in Alabama, but he did the right thing, and I am so proud of the things he is accomplishing.

Love to all,

Con esas noticias estoy seguro sera conclusivamente negativo si decide a probar otra vez a 12 semanas.  Es para Vd. a decidir.
Nice. How long since you started the treatment may I ask ? Jim

I switched to Triumeq Feb/March 2015.

This all happened to me and more .... Everyone is different I guess ... We just weren't the lucky ones ... It will be a year for me on triumeq this July and sometimes I still feel hot and get sweats ... Sometimes I'm cold .... The thirst went away mostly .... It gets better with time tho trust me be patient ...u may have some anxiety and trouble sleeping too it's all part of it ....
Yeah sometimes it is so frustrating Coz I like partying and dancing etc. but on the other hand, have to happy already I can still be alive..

Dr, me queda claro, pero usted como psicologo, sabe que la mente es mas fuerte en muchas veces.
Para quedarme  mas tranquilo, lei que hay disponible un test rapido rapid relief, asegura 100 por ciento  eficacia, A los 21 dias, es asi de cierto?
Puedo creer en ese test??

Buen día

De ante mano muchas gracias por la oportunidad de compartir las dudas para ser debatidas. Tengo una pregunta, recientemente me acabo de hacer el tes elisa. Actualmente llevo dos semanas de gripa (ya terminando de mejorarme), he tenido episodios de epididimitis y en el pasado me tuve vph (realicé un tratamiento que fue exitoso). Me realicé el test elisa ya a las dos semanas de la gripa. ¿Pueden estos tres factores influir en este tipo de test, de tal forma que salga un mensaje erroneo?

Gracias, saludos.
