I have been on Atripla since 2010 the first pill since infected had wonderful results.
But this August I started Chemo for Hodgkins Lymphoma and have been doing amazing mu HIV has not been an issue either - But due to some dizziness that I have been feeling since starting Chemo MY ID Doctor wants me to try Truveda with Tivicay 50mg I have been on them for three days. Feel OK other then insomnia...
Thoughts on this combo compared to Atripla that has worked amazingly for me ?
My Pharmacist seems very excited about me going on Truveda and Tivicay claiming it is the best combo out right now with the least side effects ?
Lastly know that I have stopped taking Atripla does that mean I can not ever go back to it? as they will no longer work?
Thanks guys.

i'm on a truvada based regimen, love it. i've seen my genotype results since i stopped taking atripla... i could still take it, no resistance, not that i'm going to, i stopped it for a reason.

just because you stop taking a med doesn't necessarily mean you can never take it again. it doesn't work that way

Hello there! First of all I want to congratulate all the people who help to answer the questions in this forum because I know it is not an easy task!

Well, this is my question: today I got into protected anal sex with a guy (I'm gay, and I bottomed). The condom was used all the time. The guy did not ejaculate inside me, as a matter of fact, the penetration lasted just a couple of minutes because, well, it hurt a lot. My concerns started by, when he pulled the condom out, some blood was on it (just a tiny bit). The condom was not broken, no semen was involved, and it was just a couple of minutes. 2 hours after the encounter, I went to the toilet and found out there was still a tiny amount of blood.

So, given the facts that
1) The condom was used all the time, and it was not damaged
2) There was no ejaculation from the top.
3) The penetration lasted just a couple of minutes
but
4) There was some blood involved

Am I at risk of contracting HIV? (I don't know the other guy's HIV status)

Thank you so much for all your help!!

Am I Infected? / Re: Urgent Answer - please help

HIV is a fragile hard to transmit virus . HIV can NOT survive outside the human body for more than an instant, small changes in temperature and PH levels damage HIV and render it unable to infect .

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI.Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.

Have a look through the condom and lube links in my signature line so you can use condoms with confidence.

Although you did not have a risk and do not need to test for this specific incident , anyone who is sexually active should be having a full sexual health care check-up, including but not limited to hiv testing, at least once a year and more often if unprotected intercourse occurs.

If you aren't already having regular, routine check-ups, now is the time to start. As long as you make sure condoms are being used for intercourse, you can fully expect your routine hiv tests to return with negative results.

Don't forget to always get checked for all the other sexually transmitted infections as well, because they are MUCH easier to transmit than hiv. Some of the other STIs can be present with no obvious symptoms, so the only way to know for sure is to test.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, and you will avoid hiv infection. It really is that simple!

Estoy infectado? / Re: Preguntas sobre mi estatus.

Estas preocupando innecesario. La protecion del condon is muy efectivo contra la tranmiscion del VIH. Probando es innecesario excepto si desea el resultado negativo solamente por su paz mental.

En su caso es carente de pertinencia porque estaba usando los condones por la copula. Circuncision o no, la protecion del condones es muy efectivo contra el VIH.

i tolerate mine well, as in not a single complaint. very non scientific answer. i feel great, stronger than i've felt in years

i'm still deep in the A territory, but it doesn't bother me

settle down, take your meds, if you really have a problem, communicate that to your doctor, they'll run some tests, they tell you if you enzymes are ok or not, proceed from there

look, side effects, are one of two things... one, in your head, and running away... or two, real, so fucking real there is no ignoring it, no doubt, you'll know. you won't have to ask anyone

Estoy infectado? / Re: sexo anal sin proteccion muchos nervios
« Last post by Andy Velez on Today at 09:05:25 AM »
Termina con el drama, Pedro. Su resultado no vas a cambiar desde 80 dias a 90 dias. Pero si necessita hacerlo, toca la prueba otra vez. Estoy seguro que su resultado sera negativo otra vez.

Tambien tiene que entender no vamos a continuar una ronda interminable con sus miedos. Su resultado negativo es fiable si creerlo o no. Adelante con su vida normal.

Es Vd. leyendo lo que estoy diciendo aqui o solamente escuchando a sus miedos?

A mi me parece que probando por Vd. es basicamente por su paz mental. A cualquier tiempo no estoy esperando otro que un resultado negativo por Vd.

El VIH es un virus muy fragil. Sexualmente es solamente durante la copula sin usando los condones que hay un riesgo verdadero para transmitirlo.

Vd. estas preocupando innecesario. PUNTO.

Am I Infected? / Re: scared on cunnlingus
« Last post by Jeff G on Today at 08:24:05 AM »
HIV is sexually transmitted from anal and vaginal sex . Cunnilingus is not a risk for HIV, the secretions a woman makes when excited comes from glands near the opening of the vagina and are NOT infectious for HIV . If present HIV resides deep in the vagina in a mucosa near the cervix and you never come near that part during cunnilingus … so it’s not a risk .

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:

You need to be using condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, every time, no exceptions until such time as you are in a securely monogamous relationship where you have both tested for ALL sexually transmitted infections together.

To agree to have unprotected intercourse is to consent to the possibility of being infected with an STI.Sex without a condom lasts only a matter of minutes, but hiv is forever.
