Estoy infectado? / Re: Se me rompió el condón durante la penetración
« Last post by Wilfzien on Today at 02:14:26 PM »
Buenas Sr. Andy, queria contarle que la diarrea me duró casi un mes pero ya desapareció. Ya va mas de una semana que tengo bien las heces, aunque lo malo es que el estomago me sigue sonando...

Los sintomas que he notado aparte son:

- He notado un pequeño dolor cuando me tocaba la parte derecha de mi mandíbula, solo cuando yo mismo la tocaba, no sé si era un ganglio inflamado... el dolor ya desapareció

- También decirle que sufro de dermatitis seborreica en la cabeza (en el pelo) desde hace muchos años. Y en este tiempo me ha aparecido un poquito también en la cara...

- Otra cosa que siento son pequeñas vibraciones en algunos músculos de mi cuerpo, aunque el médico me lo relacionó con el problema de diarrea

No sé si estos síntomas están relacionados con el vih, aunque lo que me tenia más preocupado era la diarrea.

Me haré la prueba de 4a generacion dentro de 1 semana, me han dicho que aqui en España esta prueba es DEFINITIVA a las 6 semanas (45 dias) del contacto de riesgo.

Espero que todo salga bien, un saludo Dr. Andy

Living With HIV / Re: Question about employment with HIV

A NYC Man, who was offered a job as a police dispatcher, and had the offer rescinded after his medical exam that was required to start work when they learned he had HIV.  The US Dept of justice sued the City of NY and the man is now working at the job.  The judgement was that because just being HIV+ is considered a disability he was protected by a number of federal laws.


I would make sure to be truthful when filling out the medical questionnaire but also ask the person who you turn the form into if this information will be kept confidential and who will have access to your medical information.

Welcome to the forum, I moved you post just as off topic is really for none HIV related posts and you will get more traffic here in the HIV section.

So once you have posted 3 or more time members will be able to contact you and you them through PM (Private message) perhaps you could tell us a little about yourself, how you are getting on etc ?

Estoy infectado? / Re: Consulta
« Last post by Andy Velez on Today at 12:12:27 PM »
Los sintomas no son el VIH especifico.  Con tu resultado negativo es casi seguro sera conclusivamente negativo a 12 semanas.  A esa fecha los resultados de todas las generaciones de las pruebas en uso hoy son fiable y conclusivo.
Estoy infectado? / Re: DUDA SOBRE EL CONDÓN
« Last post by Andy Velez on Today at 12:09:50 PM »
No, esa es una tonteria sobre los condones.  Cuando un condon es roto es muy facil a verlo porque es como un tiro con flecos sobre el pene.
