Am I Infected? / Re: Please i neef help risk assessment
« Último mensaje por JimDublin en Hoy a las 05:27:26 pm »
Hiya

HIV can not transmit thought an intact condom. So the encounter you are worried about is not a HIV concern.

Citar
Based on my story did you think i might have contacted hiv?

Possible, sure as you mentioned a partner
It's unlikely thought

Citar
Do you think my symptoms are hiv related?
I wondered why my white blood cell is low..could it be from flu i previously had.

No & maybe


Citar
I tried not not have sex with my wife during this stressful but she needed and i had no choice.

You had a choice, nobody had a gun to your head

I presume its unprotected intercourse? Nobody here is going to tell anyone its okay to do so, if you have been or are engaging in unprotected intercourse with your partner this would as example meet all the biological conditions needed for acquiring HIV. Its the main transmission route globally.

Now I don't judge couples that decide to engage in unprotected intercourse, its often based on trust within a relationship, however just note this trust or faith does not prevent HIV and any unprotected intercourse is simply accepting a possible risk to you of acquiring HIV.

Test regularly, understand the risks.

Overall Sounds like a lot of guilt and stress making you sick . Anyhow nothing you mentioned about the encounter was a HIV risk, the only HIV risk I can tell is from your wife.

Family GP or not they are professionals who deal with issues all day long time. You should be testing at least yearly for HIV and far easier to transmit STI's at least yearly

Here's what you need to know in order to avoid hiv infection:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse, correctly and consistently, every time, no exceptions. Consider starting PrEP as an additional layer of HIV protection going forward

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

Am I Infected? / Please i neef help risk assessment
« Último mensaje por Physiomedical en Hoy a las 05:11:46 pm »
Good day. Please kindly answer me.
I am a male, 54 years old, who had a protected vaginal sex with a recommended durex condom with a sex worker on 26th of August 2018. The sex worker gave me a condom but i decided to use my own condom.

 In early November 2018, i rented a public room close to my work place and i lied and bath with warm water. I had a small groin rashes on both side after a few weeks.  I used steroid then it went away but came back then i used anti fungal and later went off.

In middle december 2018, i had a very bad flu which lasted for 3 weeks. Also in February i had another flu which lasted for a few werks with feel fatigue, and ongoing fatigue and intermittent loss of appetite till know. Though i have anxiety as i thought i might have had hiv when i had protected sex with a sex worker. But i am 100% sure that the condom did not brake and the sex only lasted for 2 minutes due to anxiety of contacting hiv.

Because of ongoing fatigue, slight problem with sleep,  and  anxiety, i decided to do a routine blood test and the doctor told me that my white blood cell is low today and i should go for another test. But hiv text was not included as the GP practice know my family so i decided not to tell him my encounter then.
I tried not not have sex with my wife during this stressful but she needed and i had no choice.

Based on my story did you think i might have contacted hiv?
Do you think my symptoms are hiv related?
I wondered why my white blood cell is low..could it be from flu i previously had.

I did not have all these symtoms after few weeks of having sex in august 2018. I have read about low white blood on internet and it says it could be linked to hiv or other medical problems.. Is this?

Off Topic Forum / Just a thought...
« Último mensaje por beanstalk en Hoy a las 04:14:06 pm »
There's this health conference in my city which I'm participating in (for other reasons) and today I saw a stand by Gilead in the main hall. I feel tempted to go there and ask the people there if they enjoyed their dinner and their hotel stay since they payed it with our ilness.

But I guess I should keep my mouth shut.

USA.

This is according to a study published on CDC data, one could argue it supports the case for better, free to end user basic HIV care & treatment for all + PrEP. If you seriously want to curb the transmission rates. 

Transmission breakdown;

1) acutely infected and unaware of their infection
= 4%

2) non-acutely infected and unaware
=33.6%

3) aware of HIV infection but not in care
=42.6%

4) receiving HIV care but not virally suppressed
=19.8%

5) taking ART and virally suppressed
= 0%


Li Z, Purcell DW, Sansom SL, Hayes D, Hall HI. Vital Signs: HIV Transmission Along the Continuum of Care — United States, 2016. MMWR Morb Mortal Wkly Rep. ePub: 18 March 2019. DOI: http://dx.doi.org/10.15585/mmwr.mm6811e1

Abstract
Background: In 2016, an estimated 1.1 million persons had human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) infection in the United States; 38,700 were new infections. Knowledge of HIV infection status, behavior change, and antiretroviral therapy (ART) all prevent HIV transmission. Persons who achieve and maintain viral suppression (achieved by most persons within 6 months of starting ART) can live long, healthy lives and pose effectively no risk of HIV transmission to their sexual partners.

Methods: A model was used to estimate transmission rates in 2016 along the HIV continuum of care. Data for sexual and needle-sharing behaviors were obtained from National HIV Behavioral Surveillance. Estimated HIV prevalence, incidence, receipt of care, and viral suppression were obtained from National HIV Surveillance System data.

Results: Overall, the HIV transmission rate was 3.5 per 100 person-years in 2016. Along the HIV continuum of care, the transmission rates from persons who were 1) acutely infected and unaware of their infection, 2) non-acutely infected and unaware, 3) aware of HIV infection but not in care, 4) receiving HIV care but not virally suppressed, and 5) taking ART and virally suppressed were 16.1, 8.4, 6.6, 6.1, and 0 per 100 person-years, respectively. The percentages of all transmissions generated by each group were 4.0%, 33.6%, 42.6%, 19.8%, and 0%, respectively.

Conclusion: Approximately 80% of new HIV transmissions are from persons who do not know they have HIV infection or are not receiving regular care. Going forward, increasing the percentage of persons with HIV infection who have achieved viral suppression and do not transmit HIV will be critical for ending the HIV epidemic in the United States.

Living With HIV / Re: low level hiv viremia

Very small sample size to really gain any insights, but what caught my eye is the 2 hour VL result turn around. Amazing how far things have developed.

In short:

Same-Day Viral Load Testing Improves Treatment Outcomes in South Africans With HIV

Receiving viral load results within hours as opposed to weeks was linked to higher rates of HIV suppression and retention in medical care.



Twelve months into the study, 89.7 percent (175 of 195) of those in the point-of-care viral load testing group were both still engaged in medical care and had a viral load below 200, compared with 75.9 percent (148 of 195) of those in the arm that received laboratory-based viral load testing. That meant that the study’s intervention increased the likelihood of this composite outcome by 13.9 percent.

Separating those two outcomes, the study authors found that at the 12-month point, the intervention increased the likelihood of viral suppression by 10.3 percent and retention in medical care by 7.7 percent.

Poor sleep is a serious health issue. If it was my partner I would buy a taser and keep it besides the bed and, simply electrocute them wherever they snored until they go get it fixed.


https://www.poz.com/article/sleep-partners-snoring-suggestions

Citar
The healthiest option is for your partner to talk to his/her doctor to address snoring-related problems, such as sleep apnea. Sleep apnea is a potentially serious condition associated with increased risk of heart disease, car accidents and other problems.

In the meantime, try wearing earplugs and/or sleeping with pink or white noise in the background. There are various phone apps you can use to experiment with background noises.

A sleep-deprived partner isn’t healthy or sexy, so some couples find that sleeping in separate bedrooms is the best solution. To learn more about sleep health, check out tips from the National Sleep Foundation.

Living With HIV / Re: How do I disclose my status to a potential serious partner?
« Último mensaje por JimDublin en Hoy a las 02:40:50 pm »
News, perhaps?

Simple google HIV News and pick a topic, then ask them

"BTW did you happen see the news on HIV today? I found it interesting, it was regarding XYZ "

In German news this week:
https://www.br.de/nachrichten/deutschland-welt/sensation-duesseldorfer-patient-als-dritter-mensch-hiv-frei,RK6o18O

Its a nonsense or over-hyped story but that's another thread altogether.

Am I Infected? / Re: Very Worried
« Último mensaje por JimDublin en Hoy a las 02:31:19 pm »
Hiya,

The only risk from this encounter was giving a blowjob and the details you posted change nothing. Its a near negligible HIV risk, so much so that we would not recommend specific testing over it, simply move on with your life and test whenever next normally due a routine STI checkup.

Citar
It's a fact that she is in a high risk category.
Irreverent

HIV effects people from all walks of life. Although in some regions of the world, some populations are disproportionately more impacted than others, the truth is people and these groups are not high or low risk to you!  Its your own activities, behavior and choices that are risks or not. See what matters is not who you do it with or their status to be frank but how you do it.

In terms of risk assessments we simply presume the other person is unknowing to themselves living with HIV.

As said above the HIV risk from the activities you engaged in were such near negligible concerns when it comes to HIV that it does not even warrant specific testing outside of standard routine.

Citar
Can I continue sexual relations with my partner when she returns in two weeks?

I presume its unprotected intercourse? Nobody here is going to tell anyone its okay to do so, if you have been or are engaging in unprotected intercourse with your partner this would as example meet all the biological conditions needed for acquiring HIV. Its the main transmission route globally.

Now I don't judge couples that decide to engage in unprotected intercourse, its often based on trust within a relationship, however just note this trust or faith does not prevent HIV and any unprotected intercourse is simply accepting a possible risk to you of acquiring HIV.

Test regularly, understand the risks.
