Cualquier los detalles recibiendo el sexo oral no es un riesgo por el VIH.  No tiene que probar.

Adelante con su vida.
And had started research on a safer version (TAF) at that time. The company stopped their research and only restarted it because the patent on Truvada is expiring in 2018.

And we're still schlepping Truvada as PrEP. 


* For acute infection and for those younger patients or in resource poor locations, Truvada has it's place.

Hombre, no hay mas que puedo decir porque no tenia un riesgo.  Dudas y miedos no son hechos.

Probando sera solamente por su paz mental.  Si tiene algun sintomas esas son algo a discutir con su doctor.  El VIH no es la causa.

Nutrition & HIV / Re: Reducing viral load through food and or suplements

The drop in VL has nothing to do with what you are eating. It has nothing to do with your lifestyle changes so in short HIV does not care how much chicken you eat or not, or if you go to the gym or not. None of this will treat/suppress  HIV.

The only thing that will suppress the virus is HIV medication.

Nod note:
We decided to lock the thread. Now I understand you new to this but you were warned before to stay away from the denialists stuff as it is utter rubbish and dangerous to you and others and it has absolutely no place here.

Now don't think I do not see what your doing first posting the in the other thread and now posting in this zombie thread "innocent" about your VL dropping, I don't buy it and I can't accept your agenda here, and neither can the rest of us.

My advice to you is simply learn to accept that you have a medical condition. move on get treatment and stay on treatment. Life goes on, no drama needed. 
Oh and below is a general progression chart as you can see the VL drops mid during progression.

Anyhow you were clearly warned before see

So now you are getting ban and its a permanent one. This was discussed beforehand by the team and we all agreed that repeat offence would lead to a ban as per the rules. I am also locking this thread as no good can come from it.

Any member who posts denialists propaganda -- including direct links to information produced by denialist entities or language encouraging members to research denialism -- will be banned immediately. More benign questions or comments about denialism, especially when raised by a long-term member of the Forums, will be handled on a case-by-case basis.

On a personal note I really do wish you well and I hope you will be okay.
However I personally believe this ban is the correct thing to do to protect the wider forum community.

Estoy infectado? / Re: Afeitado de pene y sexo oral
« Last post by Acer on Yesterday at 07:26:49 AM »
Buenos días;

 Hace unos días me afeité el pene por la mañana y me hice varias heridas que sangraron un poco. Dos horas mas tarde tuve relaciones con una mujer que me realizó una felación sin protección. Si esta mujer tuviese heridas sangrantes en la boca podría transmitirme el vih?. Por otras respuestas que he leído dicen que no, espero que así sea.

Por cierto mis últimas pruebas me dieron negativo.

Gracias por su respuesta
Am I Infected? / Re: HIV from the barber shop
« Last post by JimDublin on Yesterday at 07:21:08 AM »
Why are you reading about knife fights that would require requiring immediate medical attention? You simply did not have that risk.

You were at a barber shop and had casual contact, and casual contact is not a risk. Even if he did nick you with the razor, thankfully now we live in 2016 and we know better about how HIV is transmitted.

HIV is a very fragile virus that requires specific conditions to survive and than it needs reach specific cell types to infect. Also HIV does not survive outside the human body (such as on surfaces), and it cannot reproduce outside a human host. Once hiv finds itself exposed outside the body to air, small changes in temperature, pH / moisture levels all quickly damage the virus and render it unable to infect.

Now to help you some examples of risks would be having unprotected sex (Intercourse without a condom), Sharing injecting equipment, Sharing needles, syringes. Mother-to-baby during pregnancy, childbirth and breastfeeding infants, and contaminated blood transfusions and organ/tissue transplants.

You can't get HIV from simply being scratched, coughing, HIV also isn’t transmitted by hugging, shaking hands, holding hand, sharing toilets, sharing dishes, kissing or through saliva, tears, or sweat.

Hope that helps, now move on.
