HAART is supposed to lower viral load.

Valtrex is not the same thing. It's all moot since we know you are HIV negative.

All the rest of this is just drama your head is running on you. Keep working with your therapist. This is NOT an HIV situation. Period. End of story.

andy i hope you are right, if the elisa comes back neg, i will never post on here again and just do my therapy, the news on aidsmeds,com just scared me about valtrex lowering viral load by over 50 percent and i figured that would effect antibodies. i will keep my promise on my first statement.need to get back to some kind of life.

Good plan. Life is at its best too short to waste on unnecessary worrying.

I hope it's the last time too. I've reported this thread to our Moderators for review.

You don't have HIV so of course you have an undetectable VL and a normal CD4 count. I won't bother explaining anything further as conversations with you are pointless -- you never pay any attention to the advice we give you.

Matty, i realize I dont have hiv

Then why are you still here, you have been told and given good advise and still you have refused to accept any of it.

I have given you a 28 day TO, please think about the advise you have been given and move on..this is an HIV site, and you do not have HIV.

You were not saying goodbye you were looking for more input and I'm not sure what comments you are looking for..as you Doctor has told you and the guys here have told you are HIV negative, so no more comments are needed from us..as I said before this is an HIV site and you DO NOT have HIV...it's time for you to move on.

Jan

Edited to add:  after 56 posts I don't think we have been impatient with you at all.

Mar 30 I went to a gay masseur and he offered to stimulate my prostate , I thought sure why not, he was doing it with his fingers, and than ask me to move towards the end of the table, so he was continuing massaging me and than all of a sudden I felt both his hands on my legs and realized he had his tiny penis penis in me , I flew off the table and screamed at him. I asked about his status and he said he was neg and gets tested all the time. That was wed Thursday started freaking out and fri went to the clinic, told my embarrassing story and they gave me a rapid test, negative and took blood for 4th gen ab/age test, I was prescribed truvada and isentress . Took all the drugs and went back may 4 test they took a month ago was non reactive , they did another rapid test , neg than took blood for anothe at/ab test. Now I'm waiting and freaking. He was in me for no longer than 15 seconds and his penis was the size of his finger. No orgasm . Am I just panicking for no reason.

I know the ab/ag test they did is back but I'm on vacation with some friends and don't want to fall apart and ruin their vacation. I guess I would like to know taking pep at 48 hr what are my chances of it succeeding.

PEP is highly effective and you started the PEP within the recommend timeframes.
I don't do chances or % of risks. Simply test as recommended by your Doctor.

after the 4th generation ag/ab test 5 days after finishing pep, they told me that i don't have to come back, which i was confused since reading on line they always say at least 1 month after pep and 3 months after pep, so i emailed the dr and got this below as a reply, anyone care to reply.


The test at the end of the month of meds should detect either the HIV antigen or antibody at even a low level if an actual infection of your T-cells occurred.  As an added precaution, you might want to check another rapid finger stick test in a month or two, as we used to do before the new HIV testing became available.

Look I can't really comment on what someone else said or emailed you, we advised you of the standard guidelines to test post PEP.

Its up to you to test or not.

Kind regards

Perhaps I was not clear, the advice we give is to test post completion of PEP and we don't comment on what other individuals say.

Its up to you to test or not.
Kind regards
