I Just Tested Poz / Re: Hi! I am Leon
« Last post by Tonny2 on Yesterday at 12:18:41 pm »



               ojo.         @Leon, one more thing, do not start disclosing to anyone your hiv status until you are sure if you want to do it, in my case just my family knows.about my status even after almost 30 years since my dx I haven’t told  any of my friends, although I imagine that my closest friends knows but he has never said anything to me. It’s just a little advice… Hugs.

Do I Have HIV? / Re: HIV risk from kissing, frenching and getting rimmed
« Last post by Jim Allen on Yesterday at 03:08:48 am »
Hiya,

You already asked about grinding and rubbing his penis against you. There is no HIV risk unless his penis penetrated your anus and you would have known about it.

I’m a virgin, never done anal at all.

it would most certainly be painful right?

Anal sex can hurt but it does not have to. Things like, preparation, toys, foreplay and plenty of condomsafe lube can help.

Do I Have HIV? / Re: HIV risk from kissing, frenching and getting rimmed
« Last post by tj292k on June 23, 2024, 09:01:28 pm »
Thanks a lot for your reply. My mind is tricking me into thinking there was penetration. I’m a virgin, never done anal at all. My rectum is very tight. Even if he tried to put it in (which I don’t remember) it would most certainly be painful right?

When he was atop me, I asked if he was gonna put it in. He said no you’re very tight and that you’ll bleed otherwise.

I guess I’m overthinking it a lot.
Is the risk zero even if he was teasing my anus with his penis (considering precum or not)?

Sorry but this was my first sexual encounter

Do I Have HIV? / Re: Shaving before sex
« Last post by Jim Allen on June 23, 2024, 01:12:26 pm »
Hiya.

Read you post three times. Her claimed PrEP usage or lack of being familiar to you is totally irrelevant. The shaving cuts/nicks are not an HIV concern.

Move on with your life.

Here's what you need to know to reduce your HIV risks:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse correctly and consistently, with no exceptions. Consider talking to your healthcare provider about PrEP as an additional layer of protection against HIV and get vaccinated against HPV, Hepatitis A & B.

Keep in mind that some sexual practices described as safe in terms of acquiring HIV still pose a risk for other easier-acquired STIs. So please do get tested at least yearly for STIs, including but not limited to HIV, and more frequently if condomless intercourse occurs.

Also, note that it is possible to have an STI and show no signs or symptoms; testing is the only way to know.

Kind regards

Jim

Vivir con el VIH / Re: LA ESPERANZA MUERE AL ULTIMO
« Last post by Tonny2 on June 23, 2024, 12:41:48 pm »




                ojo.            Hola amigos!… Los tengo muy olvidados. Les cuento que ya estoy listo para mi prótesis por cierto el 16 de julio iré para que me la hagan. La harán en cuatro horas, que rápido!. Espero que me quede bien y que no me moleste. Desafortunadamente la prótesis viejita que tenía no me quedó por tener diferentes curvatura. Es lo que hay!


Ayer tuve una colonoscopia y me encontraron cinco pólipos grandes lo cual me preocupa un poco. Le pregunté al médico porque tan grandes y me dice qué tal vez es la genética aunque en mi colonoscopia anterior sólo encontraron uno pero pequeño. Se mandaron a Laboratorio cinco muestras y tenemos que esperar 10 días Para saber si todo está bien ANGEL el médico cree que todo está bien.



Las ventajas de vivir con VIH es que somos revisados cada seis meses y si se encuentra algo raro se atiende inmediatamente de otra manera ni visitamos al médico hasta que ella fuera muy tarde. Aunque esto de la colonoscopia tiene que ver más que nada porque en mi familia Hay historia de cáncer de colon así que me tengo que hacer la colonoscopia cada cinco años y además ya estoy viejo si no hubiera historial de cáncer en mi familia después de los 50 años es recomendado hacerse cada 10 años. Bueno, ya los mantendré informados y me da gusto  Que no participe nadie porque quiere decir que ya no hay nuevos infectados. Es una broma porque desgraciadamente después de 40 años de pandemia seguimos teniendo infecciones de VIH pero afortunadamente si es que se hacen la prueba a tiempo, los medicamentos son tan efectivos que podemos seguir haciendo planes para el futuro  y vivir una vida normal así que, si se van de fiesta no olviden el gorrito… Abrazos

Do I Have HIV? / Shaving before sex
« Last post by fish2929 on June 23, 2024, 12:33:16 pm »
Hello all! I am kind of anxious because i had an encounter last night. I performed protected insertive anal sex with a random person who said she was on prep. 5 hours before having sex, I had shaved and nicked myself midways on myshaft. During sex, I felt some slighy burning on the lower part of my shaft. The condom was intact and no bleeding was visualized on my penis. The place I nicked myself was covered.  I am just worried that HIV could be transmitted through microabrasions from shaving. Please advise? Thank you

Living With HIV / Re: "HOPE DIES LAST"
« Last post by Tonny2 on June 23, 2024, 12:32:00 pm »



                ojo.              Hello everyone!… I had my colonoscopy done yesterday, the doctor found five large polyps, there were sent to the lab. I asked him why they were so large. He said that maybe genetics he doesn’t think that I had to worry about anything, but we had to wait for the lab results. So I told him, OK. I see you in five years and he said nope we have to do it again in one year. We’ll see what happens.


I wonder if taking medication for 30 could have something to do with polyps or some kind of cancer, maybe our nice moderator could chine in and help me understand this.… Like I said before, living with a Chevy has its advantages because we see our doctors every six months and if there is something wrong, we can cash whatever might be on time. In my case, I had to have colonoscopies every five years, because my older brother and my cousin die of column besides that I guess because I’m over 50 recommended to have it done anyways.… I will keep you posted …hugs



Ps. sorry for the typos

Do I Have HIV? / Re: Symptoms after csw sex

Could fluids have been exchanged in foreplay be a risk or when the condom was taken off?

Asked and answered already. You mentioned grinding against each other already and I didn't presume you would still be wearing the condom 10 + days later.

Don't ask again

I know you said not to mention symptoms… but just to share my feelings…

But nothing, I said don't!

"Your feelings" also have nothing to do with HIV

Your left testicle and arm could drop off tomorrow, it's not HIV from the concerned encounter.

If you mentioned symptoms (feelings) again or ask me something I've already answered, you will be getting a 28 day ban.

Hiya,

Read your post three times, you kissed, he licked you all, rubbed his penis against you and fingered you.

It's zero HIV risk, move on with your life.

Here's what you need to know to reduce your HIV risks:
Use condoms for anal or vaginal intercourse correctly and consistently, with no exceptions. Consider talking to your healthcare provider about PrEP as an additional layer of protection against HIV and get vaccinated against HPV, Hepatitis A & B.
