I read some articles that Lenacapavir injectables "maybe could end HIV" and so on...
Maybe if it will be available worldwide for a cheap price...
We will see what will happen int he future when phase III results will be available.

A statement from UNAIDS I wanted to post:
"GENEVA, 10 July 2024— UNAIDS has welcomed the release of Gilead Sciences’ trial results on the injectable long-acting HIV medicine Lenacapavir for HIV prevention. The result “provides hope of accelerating efforts to end AIDS”, UNAIDS says, “but only if Gilead ensures that all people who need it can have access to this game-changing medicine....

“The success of Gilead’s recent Lenacapavir trial is an exciting development. While we still await regulatory approvals, normative guidance and results from the other ongoing trials, this news offers hope that we can enable everyone who would benefit, including especially the most marginalised communities, to have access to the help they need. Enabling equitable global access to new technologies can help get the world on track to end AIDS as a public health threat by 2030,” said Winnie Byanyima, Executive Director of UNAIDS. "However, it is concerning that Gilead’s latest announcement seems to mention neither upper-middle income countries, where people cannot afford anything like Lenacapavir’s current $42,250 price tag, nor a commitment to work with the UN-backed Medicines Patent Pool. Without these safeguards, it cannot be assured that this game-changing medicine will reach all those who need"

You live here, so I suppose you see a doctor for HIV treatment. You could ask him/her for advise on how to deal with this and referrals.
Or you could contact Pulse or Glove (HIV) clinics and ask them how to go about it.
Or you could disclose your status to health professionals.
Living With HIV / Want to get plastic surgery.

Hey everyone,

I don't know if anyone has an answer to this but I don't know where else to ask. I currently live in Thailand and am considering getting plastic surgery. The last time I was here I wanted to get Lasik and they said they'll test for HIV and I backed out. I'm very scared of being exposed here and being ostracized. I went to Korea last year and told them and pretty much every clinic said no.

Does anyone know of clinics here that are okay operating on HIV patients? I'm afraid to ask and tell them my status. Or anyone have any experience with this?

Thank you!

           Ojo.             @Ricardo… meteré mi cuchara. No es mala onda del moderador el advertirles a todos los que reinciden con las mismas preguntas ya que es muy frustrante para él tener que volver a repetir lo mismo. Me doy cuenta que les pone las únicas formas, posibles, de adquirir el VIH. El moderador tiene mucho trabajo en los foros de inglés para que todavía tenga que repetir más de dos veces la misma pregunta. Vuelvo a repetir, no es mala onda del moderador y espero que comprendas… Saludos a todos.

Cuando darlando sexo oral (a un hombre) su tiene la protecion muy efectivo de su saliva. Su saliva tiene mas que doce elementos y proteinas cuales son muy effectivo contra el VIH, el riesgo es mas teorica que es verdadero

Cualquier los detalles el cunillingus es sin riesgo por el VIH.

No vamos a continuar una ronda de dudas y preguntas contigo. Si vuelves con mas dudas, etc. vas a ver usted acceso aqui bloquado.

Hola jim disculpa la molestia
Basado en la misma relación ese día del cunillingus que yo realize me lave la boca unos 20 minutos antes de realizarlo en la cual sangre de mis encías y cuando lo realize ingeri los fluidos vaginales y me lave la boca nuevamente en la cual sangre nuevamente, si en el momento que sangre tuviera  fluidos vaginales es un acceso para el.vih?
 El que tuviera su orgasmo en mi boca es algún riesgo con las encías sangrantes?
Que tipo de heridas se consideran de riesgo en la boca para el cunillingus..

Do I Have HIV? / Re: I need some validation please (and likely reassurance also!)

I (male) had protected vaginal sex with a female sex worker. The issue is that 12 hours prior to the intercourse, when shaving, I made a cut/nick with my razor. It did bleed a bit but completely stopped within 3-5 minutes.

12 hours later, I had protected vaginal intercourse, and I'm quite positive the condom did not cover that cut which, at this point, was not bleeding at all but was (and still visible). I simply was no longer thinking about that cut (stupid me).

Highly doubtful the part with the cut made it inside the vagina, but that part (with the cut) could very well had touched the vulva (labias).

For what it's worth, the sex worker went through a thorough inspection of my penis (watching closely, sniffing) prior to the ''getting down to business''. No unprotected sex (oral or vaginal) whatsoever.

Assuming she is HIV positive, any input on my risk level is appreciated. Thanks.
