Complementary And Alternative Medicine (CAM)

Complementary And Alternative Medicine (CAM)

Has anyone read the study on Black Seed Oil, and how it treats the virus? There are also arguments that support the daily use of Colloidal Silver in the "killing" of viruses. I'm not saying one should stop their traditional treatment, but can these things aid treatment in knocking the virus into an undetectable status or even help to cure a body with HIV?

Female Condoms: Experience, Advice And/or Tips

Female Condoms: Experience, Advice And/or Tips

In the spirit of safer sex I’ve got some FEMALE CONDOMS from my doctors office to try ( as a bottom ).
In a support group recently a top said he’s had good experience with them and allowed the experience be more spontaneous because it could be put in place before sex and there is no need to stop and and put something on.
Anyone else tried them? I’d like to hear from females too.

I tried them. They can go in before and stay in place. I think for me it was the same sensation as the male ones. My partner hated them. But he didn’t like condoms period.

How Hard Have You Found It To Find A Positive Person That Wants The Same Values As You.

I've never dated positive in my 24 years of being positive.....everytime I try, they don't want to commit. I'm getting older and have health issues. I want to find love before I die. Does anyone else have this issue?

Do You Have At Least One Month, Or More, Of Meds Stocked Up For An Emergency?

Do You Have At Least One Month, Or More, Of Meds Stocked Up For An Emergency?

Let's face it, emergencies happen. Insurance gets dropped, paperwork isn't filed on time, maybe an error on paperwork. There could be a blizzard, tornado, hurricane, or earthquake making your medicine inaccessible. Maybe you kept reminding yourself to refill your meds and you didn't do it soon enough. Do you have extra medicine to get you by until you can get your next refill?

Has Anyone Noticed That NONE Of The Covid Vaccines Are FDA Approved?

Has Anyone Noticed That NONE Of The Covid Vaccines Are FDA Approved?

I was just researching covid vaccines. NONE of them are FDA approved. Instead they are EUA, emergency use authorization. The issuance of an EUA is different than an FDA approval (licensure) of a vaccine.

Bimonthly Injection

Ive said before many times, the United States is far behind in HIV care
While the United States has just approved a monthly injection, I have noted Europe was doing a bimonhly study
The United Kindom (in Europe) has approved the first bimonhly injection.
The United States was behind the ball with U=U for 3 years.
The United States was behind in studying a monthly injection.
The United States is now behind in a bimonthly injection.
Sounds like the United States just doesn't care about HIV… read more
