Living With HIV / Re: Bi-monthly injectable
« Último mensaje por daveR en Hoy a las 03:54:56 am »
Discussed injectables with my Dr during my last visit. I don't think they are even available here yet. Her advise was to wait and see a bit longer. She wasn't even keen on switching me to a two drug oral regime yet as in her opinion they have not been around long enough. I tend to agree with here. Kudos to the guys who do step up and prove the drugs work long term though.

Nutrition & HIV / Re: Hiv and a1c

My Dr classed me as pre diabetic a few years back based on my fasting glucose level. I was constantly around 105 on a scale where 80 to 100 is considered normal. I use to ignore it but started exercising 5 days a week. Relatively short 1 hour workouts but intense. I can keep my fasting glucose down in the mid 90's range so it is normal. If I stop the workouts my levels go back to pre diabetic. I do a mix of bodyweight workouts and kettle bells. TRX suspension work and old style cardio, burpees, star jumps and similar.
I have to keep on top of it though. Find something you like to do that raises the heart rate and then try to find the balance of what you need to do to keep everything under control. I keep trying to ease off but unfortunately cannot without my numbers rising.

So got a text message a few days ago about getting my 5th COVID vaccine dose, and I'm going ahead with it this morning. It's great that they offer the service on a Sunday here.

I'm not sure I know anyone on the bi-monthly injections yet, so if you do switch, please keep us posted on how you get on.
Do I Have HIV? / Re: Worried..Question about possible oral sex exposure
« Último mensaje por Jim Allen en Hoy a las 02:26:37 am »

Read your post three times.

Receiving a blowjob isn't an HIV risk to you and the eye issue wasn't an HIV risk either.

As for giving a blowjob, the mouth generally lacks a route for HIV to infect, and saliva also neutralises HIV by damaging the receptors needed to infect human cells. It's such a minute HIV risk that it doesn't warrant specific testing outside of the standard yearly screening.

So you had no specific exposure to test over and if you had had an exposure that warranted concern I would have recommended testing at 6 weeks with the labs HIV antibodies test.

Here's what you need to know to avoid HIV infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse correctly and consistently, with no exceptions. Consider talking to your healthcare provider about PrEP as an additional layer of protection against HIV

Keep in mind that some sexual practices described as safe in terms of acquiring HIV still pose a risk for other easier acquired STIs. So please do get tested at least yearly for STIs, including but not limited to HIV, and more frequently if condomless 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.

Kind regards

Do I Have HIV? / Worried..Question about possible oral sex exposure
« Último mensaje por Drares84 en Hoy a las 02:12:25 am »
Hi Jim,

First off, thank you in advance for taking the time and reading my post. Much appreciate it. 🙏🏿

I'm a 37 y/o gay male. On May 1st, me and this guy gave each other head. Good times. But, when I was down on him, he ejaculated inside my mouth. I was able to retrieve fast enough that I swalloed a small amount. The rest I spat it out. Some landed on my eye, but not inside of it (I think). Fast forward to two days later, I called the dude and told him if he can come with me to get an HIV test( 30 min ones). He said yes, and we both came out negative. I was happy to hear that. But I still had lingering feelings and doubt so I asked my doctor  to please reffer me to takr a NAT 4th gen bloodwork to scan for antibodies and antigens. So this May 24th, they did my blood work(labcorp) and got my negative results back on the 26th. Everything went well there. The exam they gave me was the HIV ab/p24 ag with reflex.

I guess my two questions are, am i at risk of getting hiv based off of the sexual encounter I recently  had?

And my second question is, did I do the bloodwork at a good window period time? I did blood work 24 days after my possible exposure.

Jim, again thank you for existing man and easing our minds with your knowledge. 🙏🏿🙏🏿
Do I Have HIV? / Re: HIV Virus on Fabrics or Surfaces
« Último mensaje por Jim Allen en Hoy a las 01:23:57 am »
I already had mentioned that receiving a blowjob isn't an HIV risk to you and this is regardless of your partner's viral load or broken skin.

So, you did not acquire HIV from receiving a blowjob.

Thanks Jim for the reply.

One more question. I did received a blow job from him, I'm worried I got infected with it since he somewhat bit some skin on my penis (it was like a skin of my penis got stuck on a zipper).

I'm worried it made an small cut on my penis and I was infected by it. He did like suck my penis like very deep. Does it make a difference? He is HIV+ and I do think he's viral load is high since it was still last 2020 I suspect, this was his first test and yes his positive but now waiting for the treatment.

Is there a risk on it? Or does the virus went though the opening of my penis and made it through my bloodstream or what.

You can not aquire HIV from hugging, cuddling, kissing, breathing or touching surfaces, bedsheets, or nose picking.

Whilst we are on the subject, you can also not acquire HIV from eating food or drinks handled, prepared or served by somebody who is HIV positive, sharing toilets, telephones or clothing, sharing forks, spoons, knives or drinking glasses etc.

HIV is not acquired through day to day contact, and hugging, breathing etc. is a day to day contact activity. HIV is fragile, and sexually HIV is only acquired inside the confines of the human body, as in never being exposed outside the body.

Your adult risks are essentially limited:

- Intercourse
- Sharing drug rigs (syringes)
- Blood transfusions (extremely rare in modern times)
- Giving a blowjob (Minute risk)

Am I at risk already? Do I expect a positive result on my test on the 30th of June?

You did not acquire HIV from the activities posted here, that much is certain, also these activities require no HIV testing whatsoever and I am not going to pretend they do.

his treatment.

Glad to hear your partner has access to treatment, what you need to know is that once a person living with HIV (PLHIV) is on antiretroviral therapy (ART) and has achieved an undetectable viral load* in their blood for at 6+ months, they can not sexually transmit HIV.  Meaning even if condomless intercourse was to happen it would be no HIV risk to you.

I told my extended family about this virus called Covid. They laugh like I was over reacting. I told me sister about Monkey pox anD she took me seriously this time. She decided to homeschool my niece. Sad that all this is happening. I really hope things improve by the time my niece and other young people grow up.
