Sorry to hear about your recent hiv +discovery. Keep strong and take all the meds you need to so you can get back on track. The only thing that matters now it looking towards the future
Ok, so Mr. Jim, even if someone else was HIV+ (just saying) and if any of the infectious fluids from an HIV+ person was to get rubbed into one of the open sores on my midsection straight from the source (like rubbing sores together so you would get the idea), whether it be blood, vaginal fluid, breast milk, or what have you, it would still pose as no risk? I am asking this for potential future situations like this so I won't have to keep asking.

Thank you Wade, Cavey, Derek and leatherman for sharing your experience and knowledge. Particularly like what leatherman said about outliving his negative peers:)
Real life examples, whether positive or negative, are more powerful to me than the numbers from research, which may be based on unfounded statistical assumptions.. That's why I had the question in the first place when I read the posts in the "In Memoriam" section. And I know there are more real life positive examples out there.
Thanks, Andy. Appreciated.

Nothing you mentioned was risk for HIV your chapped lips or the cut on your finger made no difference. The fluid a woman produces when excited is
not infectious...no risk. HIV is sexually transmitted though unprotected anal and vaginal intercourse. Period.... It is safe to move on.
To avoid infection,
You need to be using condoms for all anal and vaginal intercourse until you are in a trusting monogamous relationship and both have been tested for all STIs and HIV.
Everyone who is sexually active should have an annual exam and test for all STIs and HIV ,and always after unprotected intercourse. Always using condoms will give you peace of mind your tests will return with a negative result.

The steroids helped so much with it. Not sure the specifics on how but I got 5 iv bags full of it over the course of 2 weeks. It helped me move from a wheel chair to a walker to walking in about a week and a half. I started running again a little bit after but it sucked horribly, partly from just being out of shape. Thank you
That's right, you did not have a risk for HIV from getting a blowjob. NO RISK. And no need for testing.
Other STIs are much easier to acquire so if you are sexually active it is a good idea to regularly have a full STI panel done to make sure you haven't picked up anything. That means at least once a year and every six months if you are very active.

you've been infected for longer than 6 weeks. exactly how long, doesn't really matter. how and when you were infected, doesn't really matter.
what matters, is how you move forward.
sorry about your diagnosis. gah, transverse myelitis, fuck that man... how'd the steroids handle that? i've dealt with it for two years now, i can walk but i can't run a single step.
this is a good group nathion, i encourage you to learn as much as you can here. all the buttons at the top lead to lessons, searching the archives is years of collective knowledge. ask any questions you're unsure on, vent anything you need.
welcome to the boards.

Cuando hay dudas sobre su estado del VIH solamente una prueba especificamente por el VIH puede decir si es negativo o positivo. El hemograma no puede dar esa respuesta.
No hay nada en sus sintomas que es el VIH especifico. A 3 meses puede probar por el VIH y recibe un resultado conclusivo. Con su riesgo bajo estoy esperando buenas noticias por Vd.

Haciendo PEP a 38 horas es bastante tiempo para a ser efectivo. Cuando usando PEP, puede probar primero a 6 semanas despues de terminando PEP. Si esa resultado sera negativo es casi seguro sera conclusivamente negativo a 12 semanas.
En su caso estoy esperando resultados negativos por Vd.
