What say YOU?
SANFRANCISCO — A group seeking to ban the circumcision of male children in San Francisco has succeeded in getting their controversial measure on the November ballot, meaning voters will be asked to weigh in on what until now has been a private family matter.
I located the following table for you from the University of California at SanFrancisco that I hope will give you SOME reassurance until you get your results back from your test tomorrow, which will be conclusive. I wish you the very best outcome.
Risk of HIV transmission via anal intercourse, per sexual act
Insertive partner's risk (circumcised)
(1 in 909)
Insertive partner's risk (uncircumcised)
according to Norah Terrault, MD, MPH, from the University of California, SanFrancisco and lead investigator of the study. "It is essential that we identify risk factors that can be modified to prevent and/or lessen the progression of HCV to fibrosis, cirrhosis and even liver cancer. These complications of chronic HCV infection will significantly contribute to the overall burden of liver disease in the U.S. and will continue to increase in the next decade.
as i have read a spanish study that said 0 risk , i read a british study which said up to 7 percent of new cases would be contributed to oral sex, sanfrancisco study that said zero with no ejaculation and good oral conditions, but that ejaculation and oral problems could contribute to transmission, i personally think they dont know for sure,.

They all agree in theory HIV transmission is possible with the right elements such as blood in the mouth of the giver.
Also, I think that HIV education needs to wake up about one thing: circumcized men are in the MINORITY worldwide. Even in the United States, there is a substantial minority of uncircumsized men. Let's not forget that.
Because of those side effects, many patients do not finish treatment and the virus ends up destroying their livers.
Researchers at the University of California at San Francisco and at an Oakland substance abuse center tracked the progress of 71 hepatitis C patients taking the difficult therapy. Tests and interviews indicated that 22 smoked marijuana every day or two during the treatment period while 49 rarely or never did.

SANFRANCISCO (AFP) – AIDS nearly killed Lou Grosso three decades ago, but that didn't prepare him for the latest news from his doctor: he has heart disease.
Like many older HIV carriers facing problems -- including financial -- they never expected to live long enough to confront, Grosso, 57, also suffers from aching joints, memory loss and nerve pain.
Of the 14 pills he takes each day, only three are designed to treat HIV.
