Am I Infected? / Re: Anxiety over HIV and touching objects
« Last post by JimDublin on August 27, 2016, 11:11:58 AM »
Hi

Asked and answered:

HIV does not remain infectious outside the human body, once hiv finds itself exposed outside the body, small changes in temperature, pH / moisture levels all quickly damage the virus and render it unable to infect.

Regarding other bacteria and viruses well that's a different story but look you rinsed it so stop worrying and move on.

Thanks for a quick reply Jim.

Yes all of my encounter were protected. The reason she had a test on June was because of me nagging around that we should be tested. And thus my paranoia of STI got into her too.

So my baby niece was safe? What if i forgot to wash properly and some small amount of semen was not removed.. Does putting the pacifier on a warm water for five minutes kill all the bacteria or viruses? I am sorry for panicking..

Estoy infectado? / Consulta sobre posible riesgo
« Last post by Pablojavier88 on August 27, 2016, 11:05:07 AM »
Hola a todos , desde ya agradezco el espacio que brindar para quitar las dudas.
Mi situacion es la siguiente, el dia miercoles pasado 24/08
Una chica me realizo sexo oral en dos ocaciones el misno dia... la primera duro no mas de 30 segundos ella metio mi pene en su boca y lo mordio... me dolio y saque mi pene de su boca y enseguida me lave.
No vi ninguna lastimadura ni sangre.
En la segunda vez esa mismo dia me lo realizo nuevamente duro 15 segundos y mordio mi pene mucho mas fuerte, ni vi sangre ni lastimaduras. pero dolio mucho mas que lo anterior.
Yo vengo de estar engripado y ella tambien lo estaba con muchos mocos y tos.
Al los dos dias siguientes jueves y viernes.. empeze a tener el cuerpo mas debilitado aun y con sensaciones de fiebre, pero solo tenia 37grados.

El simple echo que ella estaba con tos, afonica y engripada aumenta mis posibilidades?
Yo al estar engripado aumenta mis posibilidades de tner bajas las defensas y me contagie?

Se que mi exposicion fue bajasima y la chica nose si es - o +
Lo quebme genera dudas es las dos veces que me mordio.. y la verdad andy que yo tengo mujer y esta embaraza y tengo muchisimo miedo.
Ayuda por favor!!

Hi

Nothing you mentioned was a risk.

So keep in mind HIV isn’t transmitted by hugging, shaking hands, sharing toilets, sharing dishes, kissing, through saliva, tears, or sweat and HIV does not remain infectious outside the human body, once hiv finds itself exposed outside the body, small changes in temperature, pH / moisture levels all quickly damage the virus and render it unable to infect.

Your fear is irrational, put it behind you and move on.

Regarding your encounter in June well as long as during your sexually "encounter" you used condoms for intercourse it was not a risk. Her test results don't mean anything to you as she could test negative and be in the window period.

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. As you are sexually active, it is highly recommended that you get a full sexual health check-up / screening at least annually including but not limited to hiv testing.

Remember that some sexual practices which may be described as ‘safe’ in terms of HIV transmission might still pose a risk for transmission of other STI's. So please do get fully tested regularly for all STI's including HIV and more frequently if unprotected intercourse occurs. Also note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms and the only way of knowing is by testing.

Finally use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, to avoid sexually transmitted hiv infection.

Kind regards

Jim

Vivir con el VIH / Re: Duda con enfermedades relacionadas a VIH
« Last post by mariomtz on August 27, 2016, 10:51:07 AM »
Aqui en españa tambien hay servicio por correo, pero eso de recogerlo o recibirlo cada 3 meses no. Nosotros tenemos que ir cada mes a recoger la medicación. Excepto en Diciembre que te dan para 2 meses.
En este aspecto se hace un pelin pesado tener que ir cada mes solo para medicamentos. Analiticas y controles médicos cada 6 meses.

Saludos hasta España, y como dice Tonny2 pues hay que acostumbrarse, si o si.
Ojalá tú estés muy bien también.

Gracias por las recomendaciones, y me da gusto que estés mucho mejor y que así continuemos.

Saludos y que pases un excelente fin de semana.

Am I Infected? / Anxiety over HIV and touching objects
« Last post by lesliesuarez on August 27, 2016, 10:46:54 AM »
I have panic attacks. I was masturbating in my room, and after i finish, i picked my niece pacifier lying in ground. I have washed the pacifier with water and soap, and put it in a glass of warm water for 5 minutes before i found out they used it.
My mind was blurry if i washed it properly, and i am not sure if i wash or clean my hands before picking up the pacifier
I dont HIV but i am thinking what if i have, and what if when i picked the pacifier i touch some semen on my hands?
I am worried sick, i dont want to infect my baby niece.

Because of this, i did take an antibody test because i am panicking.. And it came negative. The last encounter i had was my female friend last June, who is, also negative because she did a test on June. Why  i am panicking so much..
