Thanks for this testimony man, I personally would like it if you could elaborate a bit more on the conception of your girls, was it after you tested positive? were you on meds? Thanks!

   Are the three girls triplets?  If not, props to your wife for being perpetually pregnant for close to 4 years.

Wow! What a busy, full life you and your wife lead. All the best to you both. BTW, I re-read your post and I now understand what I didn't before---on top of all of this, YOU are in college. Wow!

Eric this is fantastic for you and your family. But I am wondering why you dont take all your meds at once.
I am also on Truvada and Kaletra, But I take them all together at 08:00 pm every day and also have not missed a dose. I been taking them now for 3 years. I take them all at once I find it much easier then twice a day.
