Avatar m tn My health is getting bad day by day and I want to take the HIV treatment immediately. Your comments will be highly appreciated.
Avatar m tn I suppose it was good to be scared at that time- but now so much has advanced as far as prevention/ knowledge & treatment but this doesn't have the same weight in the media as it once did. Anyway- thank you for this site and all your work in answering the same questions over & over every day.
Avatar m tn Does anyone take Acyclovir daily as a prevention? Would this be practical/ affordable/ covered by insurance ? I am a 25 yr old sexually active gay male. I have friends on PreP for HIV prevention and was considering it and thought why stop there/ isn't herpes less condom proof anyways..

Avatar m tn Is the treatment for HIV-2 similar / as effective as the treatment for HIV-1? Who is at risk for getting HIV-2? Are there any tests that can detect HIV-2?
Avatar m tn Recently, read an interesting article about a man - positive with Aids -who had a bone marrow treatment and apprently appears to be hiv negative. ( 20 months after suregery ) The following url will take you to the story. Just wanted to share this in the event any party on this site with hiv/aids or not, may not know this exciting medical information. Now that Bush is gone, let's hope Obama takes the lid off the jar and opens the kitchen for stem cell research.

Avatar f tn So I have nothing to worry about ?
Avatar f tn In theory it could but you don't take chances with HIV--it's not a game.
Avatar m tn teak, It seems FDA approved truvada as prevention hiv infection before sexual activities. Is it true? How about condoms? sorry bother you but it is a doubt.
Avatar f tn I take one when I first feel the tingle, before you see anything, and another every 12 hours for 2 days, or till its gone. As long as I start the med before it erupts I can stop them Since I began doing that I have not had any come up, and the frequency of me taking the med has decreased signifigantly.
Avatar n tn it was a minor paper cut in the office.

Avatar m tn You used protection for a start and Hiv transmission occurs inside the body not outside it.Also,Hiv becomes inactive as soon as it is exposed to air and therefore unable to infect you.Your safe.Relax.
Avatar m tn 2- Should I test, If I suck (no to very little fluid, as far as I remembered) for very small interactions (4-5 times consisting of 5-15 sec) for any std/hiv? (the nipples seems to be al-right, but again not 100% sure) 3- My penis touched and rubbed her thighs, her vigina and her anus for very small interaction (unprotected) (4-5 times consisting of 5-10 secs) (no intercourse) Is it possible HIV could transmit and should I test?
Avatar f tn This forum is only for HIV prevention, not treatment of known infection. If you have been diagnosed with HIV, stop delaying and just start taking your pills. If you were prescribed Atripla as post-exposure prophylaxis (PEP) because you were exposed to HIV, what's stopping you? PEP effectivness declines rapidly with increasing time since exposure. So if you're going to do it, just suck it up and take the first dose.
Avatar m tn There is a kind of prophylaxis called PEP which has to be administrated untill 72 h after an exposure. But you did not have an exposure and the doctor will not prescribe PEP for you. Really, it's impossible to you be infected in the way you told.
Avatar n tn i went testing yesterday but the result from the clinic came back negative and they put me on post hiv-exposure medicine as the incident was less than 10hrs but was adviced to come back for testing after 3 months, wats your take on this medicine?
Avatar m tn Hello Doctor, I was thinking of a new hiv/aids prevention method. It starts with if you cover the externel urethrtal orifice, with some sort of lets say duct tape. Will it help prevent the spreading of HIV. I was wondering since it is the only way vaginal fluid, or any type of bodily fluid could enter via oral, anal sex. Thus being covered, there isn't a way for the virus to enter nor leave. Your answer will be greatly appreciated and respected. Thank you for your time.
