Positive Women / mad, sad, heartened
« Last post by Atelier on October 05, 2015, 12:11:37 AM »
I am heartened to have this opportunity to reach out to women who I consider kindred spirits. I am saddened because of extremely vulnerable situation I am in. I opened up my heart and home to a graceless stranger (imposter?) I have been shaming myself now because I should have been wiser. Yes I met him on this site... at first he laid on the lovey dovey so thick I was blinded by it, oozing with trust. This story spans one year, so I will make it short. He came and stayed with me in my home, we had unprotected sex, I left him in my house alone, I went to work, ignored all the red flags. The situation has been obviously going south ever since! I am not a victim, nor was I innocent when it came to the fighting...The last time he was to come I called it off. More fighting. Next thing I know, he is threatening to out my HIV status at my job, and on my professional networks, and claims this is legal advice given to him from a woman who works for Canadian HIV/AIDS legal network, who also happens to be an ex-girlfriend. Fear of being outed in such manner caused my anxiety to spiral, and landed me in hospital. Since he has not made good on these threats, everyone keeps telling me to just "let it go". The problem is I am so angry about how unethical this all is! I feel like it is not just about me, but the risks we all face as HIV positive community. Should I report him? Should I contact Canadian HIV/AIDS legal Network? Should I let it go?

You did not have even a remote risk for HIV its safe to move on.

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!

Am I Infected? / Re: Broken condom - receptive anal
« Last post by Jeff G on October 04, 2015, 11:27:57 PM »
Im sorry you used your last free post to ask again about some we do not discuss. Statistics on transmission are not meant to be applied to an individual as there are to many variables.

Sexual fluids are not infectious for HIV once out of the body so you only need to be concerned if there was a condom break Condom breaks are a risk to test for if there was ejaculation not. Given what you shared you should expect a negative result.
Living With HIV / medication and alcohol

ok so the subject line seemed odd as i wrote it ...LOL...of course dont mix it LOL....but seriously, i'm wondering in moderation about drinking while taking meds. Surely, we can have 1 or 2 drinks and im sure some have had more...LOL....

So the nitty gritty question is....anyone on Triumeq that has had a few drinks. Honestly, im not a hard drink person - a glass or 2 of Moscato or red wine 2-3 times a week, maybe if I go out a Cosmo or a beer. 

Would like to know any side effects during, after, next day, etc? 

Right now since i am new the dr wants me to hold off on any drinking until next labs....my 1st labs were only 16 days on meds so not a totally clear pic of the liver but there was no concern. Still she would like to have a 30 day lab (which actually will be 45 days or so) to give me the OK to have a glass or 2 of wine.

Oh ....and i take my pill in the morning bc i was already thinking with my anxiety there was no way i would pop a pill at dinner and then have a drink a few hours later... LOL...

I will in 4 weeks but I was just curious as to precum and HIV. I read from jkinatl2 that it is possible but not probable to get HIV from precum. Also I've read that there is a 1 in 100 chance to get HIV from unprotected anal sex. That sounds like it's not that easy to get. Am I misinterpreting this?
