Hola Andy!!! Muchas gracias por tu respuesta....

La verdad me tranquiliza mucho..... No se porque pero aun tengo mucho miedo de hacerme la prueba, siento que puedo ser el 00000.1% que se infecto de esta forma ojala este equivocado.

tratare de llenarme de valor y hacerme la prueba, posteare los resultados y ojala sea negativo..

Nuevamente muchas gracias por existir y dar este apoyo que muchos necesitamos en este momento....

Un gran abrazo

Living With HIV / Re: Traveling to the US with my meds

if you carry them aboard a flight in a Ziploc bag

As they are not liquid, there is no reason to even do this. Just have them inside your carry-on luggage :)

Questions About Treatment & Side Effects / Re: One, two or three pill regimen

CaveUK - you are correct!
One another note, i feel that i should state.... From personal experience, i feel it much more convenient to take my dose in the mornings rather than the evenings. I noticed this while visiting USA (East coast) this summer. Living in Asia, since i also travel to EU AND USA, i thought taking my dose in the eve would make most sense - dinner time in Asia = lunch time in EU = breakfast in Eastern USA...
However, this summer, i noticed that getting rid of the dose in the AM, leaves my mind completely free. It is like a big task is out of the way (like brushing teeth, going to gym, taking that crap, shaving etc). At least, that is how it felt for me. I also ate less at night when i took my dose in the AM. I have a check up in a few weeks and i will ask (tell) my doc that i intend on switching up my timing. What about my travels? for the few times of the year that i am in the EU i will just re-adjust to local time. It happens only once or twice a year for a few days. And for my yearly visit to USA - dinner time will be an easy burden to bear  for the two weeks.
The message i am trying to convey? Find a regiment that is convenient for you and stick to it. If it doesn`t work, you can always change it - there are options.
You're Welcome !
Thank you Wade :)
Nutrition & HIV / Re: 5:2 Fasting Diet
« Last post by RemyG1971 on August 23, 2016, 11:24:52 AM »
It might sound crazy but for two weeks try:

1. drinking nothing but water. I drink Smart Water & flavor it with Harney & Sons Herbal decaf raspberry tea & cut up lime.

2. Eating nothing but high water soluble fruit (watermelon, grapes, oranges, kiwi, apples, mango etc). Benefit is you get to eat as much as you want, your body will tell you when you have had enough. Easy to digest and it will change your life.

3. If really out of shape start off by taking it easy. Continue to challenge yourself. When the lbs start dropping try yoga, keep the joints limber. As they say once the joints go, you go.

This is coming from a 45 year year old male, that eats probably 80% fruit diet. I run, swim, bicicle, train in bjj, go to gym, play tennis, play volleyball, bikram yogi, surfer, skater, completed marathons & triathlons, so it works.

Change happens one person at a time=) Hope this helps...
Long story short, body fluids are not infectious once outside the body and exposed to air.  This was in no way a possible a risk for HIV and 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.
