I'm glad to hear you are doing well with the new treatment. How are you feeling/doing otherwise?

Not sure, are you expecting a change in HIV meds would somehow change your CD4 count? CD4 count will vary by even 100 points within a day, I could sneeze between tests, and the two tests would have a different count, All HIV meds do is suppress the virus; they don't change your CD4 counts, and to be honest, you should not even be looking at CD4 counts anymore.

Are worried about CD4 counts and if so why?
Hi, I just posted an update on my switch from bik to dovato. Like you, I'm extremely anxious all the time, still.
Good morning, I would like to give an update on my recent switch from Biktarvy to Dovato.

I have been on Dovato now for a month, after being on Biktarvy for 9 months (initial treatment).

my VL stayed UD, my CD4's however dropped from 470 down to 400, and my CD4/CD8 % dropped from 17% to 14%. I have had a cold for about 1.5 weeks, which I'm hoping is the reason for the downtown in CD4's

Otherwise, the switch was without side-effects. I was hoping to have a CD4 of > 500 after nearly 12 months of treatment (initial CD4 was around 175).

I hope everyone is doing well
Yup, utter moron for sure.

I appreciate these companies are under huge pressure, particularly as online shopping has really boomed; that said, when you hear and see how some parcel companies behave with packages, nothing surprises me. Sooner or later, someone, or as in this case, a rabbit, was going to get hurt.

You're welcome.

Correct, you had an HIV risk so test to confirm your HIV status. Worrying about it will not change the outcome and by testing you will know and if you are living with HIV at least you can then start treatment early before the virus unchallenged does both measured and unmeasured damage to you.

Estas preocupando innecesario, adelante con su vida.

Mientras sea sexualmente activo, hágase la prueba de ITS y VIH anualmente.

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

Uso 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

Saludos cordiales
