Hola, hace una semana más o menos tuve una situación de riesgo y me hicieron tomar Pep la cual incluye dolutegravir,lamivudina y tenofovir. El día de ayer tuve una situación de alto riesgo(sexo anal sin preservativo con eyaculación) siendo yo el activo con un transexual, debería extender mi profilaxis post exposición o que puedo hacer en este caso.
Muchas gracias

A new Stanford study says that HIV may be responsible for the Omicron variant..

Stanford Researchers Looking at Possible Link Between Omicron COVID Variant and HIV

Just an idea.. maybe get everyone with a compromised immune system vaccinated? Better yet, everyone with an immune system on the planet?  But then how would big pharma profit? They can't just give it away, heaven forbid.. :-\

Get ready for the misinformation blame game that PLWHA are spreading the Omicron. I sure hope not.

I found this article to be intriguing as researchers start to take a closer look at the possible implications of this form of vitamin D which is not commercially available.
The implications are still just a hypothesis though.

Perdón no me exprese bien. Quedo colgando de la vagina. Yo podía ver el condon
Estoy infectado? / Re: Sexo con trabajadora sexual
« Last post by Atenton on Yesterday at 08:07:42 pm »
En todo momento el condon cubrió la cabeza del pene. Yo me di cuenta que el condon quedó afuera, digo, cuando retire el pene, el condon se salió. Quedo afuera.
Por ello mi pregunta de si debo realizarme un test.
Estoy infectado? / Re: Sexo con trabajadora sexual
« Last post by Jim Allen on Yesterday at 07:40:20 pm »
en una ocasión el preservativo quedó dentro de la vagina de la trabajadora, por lo cual volví a ponerme un nuevo preservativo y así continuar con el acto.

Si el condón no cubre la cabeza del pene durante el coito, existe el riesgo de contraer el VIH.

Obtener a prueba de laboratorio por VIH a 6 semanas . Un negativo a 6 semanas segnifica es casi seguro será negativo concluyentemente.

Esto es lo que necesita saber para evitar una infección por VIH:

Use condones para el coito anal o vaginal, de manera correcta y constante, siempre, sin excepciones. Considere comenzar la PrEP como una capa adicional de prevención del VIH en el futuro.

Tenga en cuenta que algunas prácticas sexuales que pueden ser descritas como seguras en términos de VIH podrían representar un riesgo para la transmisión de otras ITS mucho más fáciles de adquirir.

Hágase la prueba regularmente para detectar el VIH y las ITS por lo menos una vez al año y realice pruebas con más frecuencia si ocurre una relación sexual sin protección

Do I Have HIV? / Re: Need Reassurance/Testing Assurance
« Last post by Jim Allen on Yesterday at 07:32:04 pm »
You're not sure? Did you have a condom on your penis after the sex? or was the condom hanging out of her vagina? If the answer is yes to either of these then move on with your life.

The other option would be that during intercourse the condom came off fully, to help you picture it, this would be having to fish out the condom from her vagina afterwards, if this was the case it's an HIV risk.

Now you have already tested and the result for HIV is non-reactive on an HIV antibodies lab test that was performed 6+ weeks after the incident, further HIV testing is generally not needed as this result will rarely ever change. If you must for peace of mind you could repeat at 3 months for a conclusive result.

The issues experienced have though have nothing to do with HIV from this encounter, so keep working with your healthcare provider to treat them and I hope you feel better soon.

Best, Jim.

Here's what you need to know to avoid HIV infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions. Consider talking to your health care provider about taking PrEP going forward as an additional layer of HIV protection.

Keep in mind that some sexual practices which may be described as ‘safe’ in terms of HIV transmission might still pose a risk for transmission of other STI's, so please do get fully tested regularly and at least yearly for all STI's including but not limited to HIV and test more frequently if unprotected 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

I’m not sure, I think it slipped off near the end but I’m not sure thinking back if it covered everything. Either way I’d like to maybe think about what’s conclusive
