Am I Infected? / Re: HIV Risk! Please Help!
« Last post by Jeff G on Yesterday at 10:51:37 AM »
There is no need for testing for incident but we always advise ...

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!

Just have the whole list of STIs done and remove any doubts you may have. Anyone who is sexually active should be having them done regularly.

Estoy infectado? / Re: Dudas sobre el sexo oral
« Last post by Andy Velez on Yesterday at 10:48:49 AM »
Nada excepto sexo con su mano es 100% seguro. Pero sabemos despues de tantos anos en la epidemia que solamente la copula vaginal y anal sin usando los condones son riesgos confirmados.

Su saliva tiene mas que doce elementos y proteinas cuales son muy efectivo contra la transmicion del VIH fiable. Y recibiendo el sexo oral cualquir los detalles no es un rieso por el VIH.

Para preventir VIH transmicion sexualmente tiene que usar los condones cada vez por la copula. Punto.

Hi, Thanks for your reply!

So would you recommend testing for STD but no need for HIV test?

Thanks again,

Estoy infectado? / Dudas sobre el sexo oral
« Last post by a20andresyours on Yesterday at 10:34:27 AM »
Saludos agradeciendo de antemano la ayuda para mis dudas.

He visto la gran controversia sobre si el sexo oral a un hombre siendo activo es posible o no. Se dice que existe riesgo teórico, así me lo indicaron los de la Cruz Roja España y por eso me mandaron a hacer el test.

Comento un poco lo sucedido, practiqué sexo oral a un hombre que no conozco su estado de VIH, fueron máximo 20 segundos, pero antes limpié su glande, le puse lubricante a base de agua (estoy seguro que no había liquido preseminal) y realicé la acción. No sufro de encías sangrantes, pero antes de 4 horas del encuentro sexual me limpié un diente con hilo dental, supongo q sangró un poco. Estoy preocupado si es posible contraer el VIH por esta situación.

Otra duda, el liquido preseminal es realmente un agente de transmisión del VIH?

Gracias

Am I Infected? / Re: My encounter
« Last post by Jeff G on Yesterday at 09:28:07 AM »
The risk is low for the insertive partner with dipping or brief unprotected insertions so you should expect a negative result. The window period for testing depends on the test you you but that is something to discuss with your testing team and not us. Generally speaking you can test at 6 weeks past any possible exposure and again at 3 months.

You did have a risk for HIV and will need to test, you can do so at 6 weeks past any possible exposure and again at 13 weeks to confirm the results. You can read about testing here...

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.

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!

Living With HIV / Re: Bisexual, HIV+.. Is there any hope in finding love?
« Last post by mecch on Yesterday at 09:16:52 AM »
If you think having HIV doesn't reduce the fish in the pond.... mkay
If you think lots of people are cool partnering with bisexual partners.  mkay.

Good luck. Walk that walk.  I believe love and relationships are possible for anyone.
