Do I Have HIV? / Re: Risk oral and blood exposure
« Last post by leatherman on Today at 06:56:27 pm »
We always used condoms at my insistence.
Excellent! That is the best way to make sure you're not at risk for HIV

maybe he didn't notice a possible breakup
Another moment concerns the oral sex I performed on him.
small wound on his lip that I noticed after he performed oral sex on me.
Did I take risks?
None of those things were risks. Any anxieties you are having are just that, anxieties.

Don't have unprotected anal/vaginal sex and don't share injection needles.
Test yearly and consider PrEP.

Do I Have HIV? / Re: Risk oral and blood exposure
« Last post by Marghe23 on Today at 05:59:57 pm »
I'm back...
I had to end a relationship that was based on many lies... this brought the earth under my feet and fueled anxieties.
I took a self test dating back to the beginning of January for some situations related to oral sex that came out negative.
Since then I have met that person four more times until the end of March. I don't know if these episodes can be at risk. I probably need reassurance.
We always used condoms at my insistence. He wasn't familiar with it because he didn't use them (I don't know if only within his previous marriage).
My retrospective anxiety makes me doubt that maybe he didn't notice a possible breakup (particularly in the three/four times he ejaculated internally).
Another moment concerns the oral sex I performed on him (in which I practically only licked the shaft of the penis up to the frenulum without sucking and without ejaculation).
Last issue: a small wound on his lip that I noticed after he performed oral sex on me.
Did I take risks?

Estoy infectado? / Re: Sex Anal con chica trans por segundos
« Last post by Jim Allen on Today at 04:41:42 pm »
Tuviste relaciones sexuales sin condón, es la principal forma de contraer el VIH.

PEP es tu elección.  PEP se aplica dentro de un período de 72 horas del posible riesgo, cuanto antes lo tome, mejor, pero no más tarde de 72 horas después del riesgo. Prueba 6 semanas después de terminar la PEP. un negativo lab VIH anticuerpos prueba a 6 semanas significa es casi seguro sera negativo concluyevamente

Si no inicia PEP,  entonces pruebe 6 semanas después del riesgo, un negativo lab VIH anticuerpos prueba a 6 semanas significa es casi seguro sera negativo concluyevamente


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

Estoy infectado? / Sex Anal con chica trans por segundos
« Last post by ricrodriguez on Today at 04:05:35 pm »
Buen dia

buscando informacion  sobre las posibles riesgos que tuve encontre el foro ,agradezco las personas que sin costo se toman el traajo de responder preguntas a personas que n o sabemos mucho..

Tuve un episodio con una chica trans sexo anal donde fui receptivo / pasivo / bottom, donde antes de la relacion en los bbesos y frotamientos me metio el pene , a lo cual le dije que si ya tenia el condon me dijo que no ,asi que me quite de alli y se lo coloque y terminamos lo de mas con condon

fue al rededor de 5 o 6 segundos que estuvo dentro de mi no fue por mas tiempo, ella me respondio estar bien  y saludable y que estaria dispuesta a hacerse una prueba pero pues esto aun no  ha pasado, fui al medico para ver si era necesario pep y me dijo que si bien era un riesgo era muy bajo al no haber eyaculacion y ser un periodo muy breve, no lo recetarian para este caso ya que no lo consideran una urgencia o riesgo alto , solo me dio una orden para hacerme examenes esta semana y que pidiera examenes nuevamente para 30 dias para evaluar .

Considera que debo buscar otra opinion medica o comprar de manera privada con otro centro medico el pep?

Living With HIV / Re: Regular labwork didn’t go as planned
« Last post by BubbaPat on Today at 01:21:51 pm »
Hey kiddo!

I hope the next visit goes bette.  So far, my favorite doctors have all been "Eh.. let's get this redone.  At your age, numbers get weird." and then we get retested and all is good.  Still fat and old.. but hey... still here.

I even once had pneumonia so bad the nurses kept poking me with their fingers.  They thought it funny and odd that I walked in there on my own power.  They couldn't believe I was up, walking and talking with 70% oxygen.  Now as for the STUDENT doctor... that little whi.. woman, almost got cussed out.  She spoke to me then went and told my husband that he should get our affairs in order.  I knew, from ACROSS the room that something along those lines was said because he went W H I T E.  When I saw him, I got mad then flipped him off to know I was okay.  I told MY doctor that either he teach her or I would.  She came around when I was asleep.  Never saw her again.

Crossing my fingers, saying a prayer, and doing a jig (as long as my hip holds) to get your numbers where they need to be.

Bubba hugs,
Patrick

OMG!  The post and y'all's comments CRACK ME UP!!!
Thank you!  I needed this.

Being a kid growing up in a conservative household when Ronnie was screwing us over, this terrified me.
I think I too would buy the set as well as the Kramer and Taylor additions.  I'd have to get lightsabers as well... just to add to the depth.

Hey all,

I'm looking for work and came across a site that I was applying on and it ask to check if I had any "disabilities".  HIV/AIDS was listed.

I wasn't sure how to feel about this.  Should I say yes or no?

Your thoughts and experiences are greatly appreciated.

Bubba hugs! Patrick
