The facts are there is a very small number (2) of sexual partners in the past 5 years, and those have been ruled out as a vector. This leaves acupuncture or my colonoscopy in late May.  I know the science and based on this and your insistence it is “impossible” for me to be positive. I wish the facts were that this is impossible, as I would not have contracted the virus. An investigation is underway.
I’m on treatment and this has not slowed or stopped my life in any way. I’m connected with the best doctors. I have very good guidance and support from friends, family, and health care experts. Because of this, I am tied into organizations funding and conducting research towards a cure.

Hiya

I'm not going to repeat myself. You are HIV positive just not thought the vector claimed & I personally don't care if you want to entertain fantasy just not here.

Consider the topic closed, if I have to revisit this thread or the topic or warn again as mod it will be locked and TO's issued

Jim

Hiya,

Yeah, guided by a hollow tube would not change this.

Look I've met health officials etc that will not even rule out shaking hands or sharing toilet seats. Thankfully, this does not make it factual or even remotely possible and plenty do know better.

Anyhow, To be blunt personlly I don't care how anyone became poz neither do I plan to debate this. There is a level BS about immaculate conception we tolerate from newbies on these topics for good reason however you have now reached it.

Let me be clear the only choice (opportunity) being presented to you here at this stage is to simply drop the topic so you can continue as a member to gain support from the others when it comes to living with HIV & Treatment etc, as said it's not always an easy path and the people here are very supportive.

Jim

Machopeful:  I, too, wish you well and am very sorry that the transmission route of your infection is of deep concern to you.

However, I don't know how fruitful it is for you to continue this quest for long, short of some clear unusual transmission route coming to light, one that would withstand scientific scrutiny, etc.  Otherwise, you may endlessly be on a quest to prove a negative.

There is no such thing as "safe sex," only safer sex.  Though you write that you have always practiced safer sex, is it not a possibility that, remote as it may seem, a condom failed, or that, despite your safer sex practice, that you became infected through a sexual route (perhaps during your threesome in January 2019, if I understand your first posting)?

I don't know, of course, but it seems, as a matter of chance, that a sexual route (despite safer sex practice), is more likely than some of the other scenarios you envision, especially these days.

My point is, perhaps it is better for you to concentrate on the present and future:  adhering to your regimen and staying healthy.

Best wishes to you and your partner.

No fantasy, simply facts here. The facts are that all sexual partners have been ruled out as a source of transmission and confirmed by the health department. There is no drug use, tattoos, or piercings, which eliminates needles. I have not had any surgeries or blood transfusions.  This Leaves ONLY: potential repeated false negative of someone who is positive, acupuncture, or the colonoscopy. None of these are common, but based on the data and timeline, acupuncture is the least unlikely. These are simply the facts; no judgement, emotion, or opinion.

The whole point of posting here was that my case IS not supposed to be possible. When the investigation concludes, I will gladly share all of the details and reports.

Hiya,

Okay I'm calling this one it's simply bullshit and I've been giving this more attention & room than it deserves. It belongs to the nose picking claims and tolilet seat stories that still are sadly used.

I have warned, the thread will now be locked and I'm giving you a final warning so you can have the opportunity to continue to be a member here and gain support.

Let me be clear though any further BS about immaculate conception including Heath department CYA statements will lead to a ban from the forum.

P.s :
Just for future reference ignoring mod notes and trying to debate joint forum moderators decisions is a sure path to a time out or full out ban

Jim
