Do I Have HIV? / Re: Question about exposure

Banned, you know what you posted wasn't an HIV risk. 

Your only ongoing risks have been sex with your girlfriend. So ill remind you that if you engage in any condomless sex with your partner, you are at a greater risk of acquiring HIV. In relationships, condomless sex is often based on trust or past test results; however, this does not prevent HIV. Any condomless sex means accepting the greater risk of acquiring HIV, and you should consider testing more frequently.

Sunday afternoon (Australian east coast time) I received a call from my doctors clinic saying they are enrolling participants in a study.

It's for nonresponders. After 10 years of undetectable viral loads i can't crack 250 cd4s hopefully this new trial will find something that boosts cd4s. I don't know any details yet. Tuesday morning will be my first appointment.

I will maintain my currents. ARTs.

Don't think this bodes well. Their advisor - Ely Benaim used to be Vice President of Clinical Affairs at Sangamo.
Sangamo's  seemed to used similar technique for a "functional cure", similar dubious  marketing tactics with ultimately no end product to speak of.

Was excited to read this at first - but the fact that they haven't done any mice or primate studies is telling.

Gracias Jim. No pregunto más. Me quedó claro que el riesgo es despreciable y trataré mis síntomas con un doctor. Muchas gracias

Sus síntomas no son específicos del VIH. Consulte a su médico y trate cualquier cosa que lo esté enfermando.

El riesgo por el VIH cuando darlando sexo oral  es muy, muy bajo, el riesgo es mas teorica que es verdadero. Saliva tiene mas que doce elementos y proteins cuales son muy efectivo contra la transmicion del VIH, así que no veo razón para realizar el test a menos que hays tenido otros encuentros sexuales que no hayas mencionado aquí.

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

Puede encontrar más información sobre Fundamentos del VIH, PEP, TaSP y Transmisión a través de los enlaces en mi firma.

Saludos cordiales

Hola chicos buenas tardes. Primero que todo gracias por el espacio. Vengo de una situación que me preocupa mucho.

Practiqué sexo oral a dos chicos desconocidos (alegaban su estado serológico negativo) con un mes de diferencia. El primero nunca estuvo con chicos y le practiqué sexo oral sin eyaculación. Al segundo le practiqué sexo oral, eyaculó afuera y después de un rato seguí practicándoselo (entré en contacto con su semen). Con otro chico frotamos nuestros penes pero solo me hicieron oral (yo no practiqué).

Pues tres días después del último chico a quien le practiqué, me dio fiebre de hasta 39 grados, tos con flema, una especie de faringitis y después de dos semanas, dermatitis seborreica (siempre he tenido pero ahora tengo en la cara).

Estoy realmente preocupado. Me haré la prueba cuando pase el periodo ventana pero, el riesgo es grande de haberme contagiado? Estos síntomas son compatibles con una seroconversión? Muchas gracias. Espero su respuesta para poder quedarme tranquilo
