As long as you always without any exceptions have a condom on for anal or vaginal intercourse, no matter who your partner is, you will be well protected against the sexual transmission of HIV.

HIV is a fragile virus. It is not passed by touching a used condom or any other environmental surface.

You are worrying needlessly.

Cheers.

Naveen,


I've merged your new thread into your original thread - where you should post all your additional thoughts or questions. It helps us to help you when you keep all your additional thoughts or questions in one thread. It doesn't matter how long it has been since you last posted in your thread or if the subject matter is different.

If you need help finding your thread when you come here, click on the "Show own posts" link under your name in the left-hand column of any forum page.

Please also read through the Welcome Thread so you can familiarize yourself with our Forum Posting Guidelines. Thank you for your cooperation.




The reason you cannot find that information anywhere is because people with hiv usually have normal weight. If it's hiv wasting you're worried about, that's something that happen only after years of untreated infection.

I don't know why you're worried about this sort of thing when you didn't have a risk. If you can't accept our no-risk assessment, then go test, collect your negative result and move on with your life.

You haven't presented any experiences of unprotected intercourse which would lead us to think you have had a risk for HIV. As far as I can tell you are playing doctor with yourself without a license and misinterpreting physical happenings as a sign of HIV infection.

If you have any symptoms that are concerning you that is something to discuss with your doctor.

I don't see any reason to think it has anything to do with HIV.

Naveen,

You may be at risk for lots of things when you wash in sewer water, but hiv isn't one of them. Hiv is not transmitted from things in the environment, including water of any sort.

Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently and you will avoid hiv infection. IT REALLY IS THAT SIMPLE!!!!
