I Just Tested Poz / Re: Newly positive, not sure about the doctors' treatment

Hi.

Welcome to the forum.
Not sure I understand why you need to wait to start treatment.
It's recommended to start treatment at diagnosis.

Anyhow welcome and I hope to hear more from you.

if it's unavoidable, if a second test is required, wait 4 weeks to start meds

but it is NOT ideal, your CD4 is very low, you shouldn't wait much longer than that

it is never too late to start meds, but that's not reason enough to procrastinate

Thanks a lot. I will be sure to test.

I am so afraid because I put myself at risk over something stupid. I hope he isn't positive

You said your boyfriend is being incredibly supportive, lashing out at him for
no reason will just push him away.  You have to get past your anger and except
you have HIV and its no ones fault.  I'm assuming you've started treatment ,
how are things going with that?

I guess it's nothing specific exactly - its more that I feel like I lash out at him for no reason as a way of venting the anger.

Hi,
I'm sorry for you recent diagnosis and the trouble you are having .
I have no idea why your doctor wont start you on treatment with your numbers being what they are.   If it were me I would see a different doctor . 
Please keep us posted and Welcome to the forums.

Best, Wade

Hi,
First of all HIV doesn't discriminate against who it infects, so I
cant give the odds you would like to hear.
Your symptoms could be caused by anything and we do not discuss them.
Unprotected intercourse is a risk and as Jim advised you will need to test at 6 weeks past exposure and again at 13 weeks to confirm your result.

Best, Wade

I Just Tested Poz / Newly positive, not sure about the doctors' treatment

Hey guys I'm newly positive here and I had some questions you might be able to answer and help me out ;)

My CD4 191, viral load 120000/ml, 24years old and no symptoms of HIV related disease developing yet. Although this blood test was only taken once.
Here in Japan somehow doctor's got to screen my CD4 twice (4weeks of time)in order to file a great insurance to cover ART treatment so he doesn't want to bring up CD4 by treating me with ART right away but instead, he is using PCP antibiotics until I get the second CD4 counted. Would it be possible that it might be too late waiting to take ART?

Thanks guys

Hey thanks for the comment.

During those 10 seconds he did not ejaculate just pre ejaculation... Does that pose a certain risk and how big is it?

Also what is his likelihood at having HIV being that he is a heterosexual white male that slept with only women without protection and also did injected drugs for a month using clean needles.

He definitely need to be checked for me to have a ease mind, but it is so hard for him to take off work to go to a clinic
