Finding out you're positive

Finding out you're positive

What was your response when finding out you were positive?

For me, I was uneducated on what HIV was, and its treatments. I just knew ghere wasnt a cure, that I was really sick, and was anxious to know how much time I had left. (LOL)

If I switch from Atripla to Biktarvy and have any issues is it possible to switch back?

If I switch from Atripla to Biktarvy and have any issues is it possible to switch back?

I was diagnosed in April 2019. I started Atripla right away and was undetectable within a couple of months. Have had nearly no side effects. Now my doctor wants me to switch to Biktarvy because it has less risk of long term effects. I agreed but haven’t started it yet. I’m a little anxious about changing from something that is working well.

What would you do if you infected your partner?

What would you do if you infected your partner?

In a normal relationship, you would tell your partner you’re poz. But do couples ever talk about the horrible situation of it actually happening?! My partner knows I’m poz and we take ever my precaution, but like I said...we’ve never really had the “what if” talk. Do you think the relationship would really survive that?
