Living With HIV / Re: First Cabenuva injection
« Last post by prescott1987 on Today at 06:38:04 am »
I am having the same lower back/sciatica pain 3-5 days after the injection on the rilpivirine side, lasting 3-4 weeks. I wonder if you were able to find a solution to this problem? I am considering going back to pills unfortunately at this point.

I've been on Cabenuva for a year now.  I highly recommend it.  Couple things though, I get persistent lower back pain for 4 or 5 weeks following getting the shots.  Not sure why it happens.  My guess is having a foreign substance sitting in my muscle is a contributing factor.  Also, in the beginning Iwould get flu like symptoms for 36 hours after getting the shot and it had a lot of pain at the injection site.  That is not an issue anymore though.  Other than those things though I have no other side effects.

The best part of Cabenuva is that by the third injection you transition to bi monthly shots.  That by far makes Cabenuva a game changer.

Good luck finding some underwear and I hope the clinic visit is uneventful.
blck/wht checkerboard boxer briefs and the visit was good. Larry has been having issues so he got an EKG and a xray. Even though they didn't need the urine sample from me, I gave it to them anyway.

Then, after getting much needed haircuts,  we met up with my best friend and his mom at the Mexican restaurant when we got back to town. It is Margarita Celebration Day! Now I'm super drunk and can't stop the hiccups. LOL Larry told them I get extra touchy (ie horny) when I'm drunk, so we'll see how the rest of the night goes. ;)

Anyone who continues to post excessively, questioning a conclusive negative result or no-risk situation, will be subject to a four week Time Out (a temporary ban from the Forums). If you continue to post excessively after one Time Out, you may be given a second Time Out which will last eight weeks. There is no third Time Out - it is a permanent ban. The purpose of a Time Out is to encourage you to seek the face-to-face help we cannot provide on this forum.

Asked and answered already.

I'll add that how HIV is or isn't transmitted doesn't change because of a person's nationality, skin colour, etc.

Also you put
Here's what you need to know to reduce your HIV risks:
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



Was this to say any future? In terms of sexual contact I should follow that you wasnít saying I should do that ie talk to health provider because of my question but it was rather this is risks for anyone is that what you meant there and that you didnít mean this information for my question that I have asked

Yeah, it's general safer sex advice that's included on all threads. So you don't need condoms or PrEP for your eyeballs.

I am telling you to use condoms & consider PrEP for any sexual contact you might have, and if you are sexually active to get an STI screening at least yearly.
