I've been on Genvoya a little over a year, and it seems that I've gained weight. I've tried to diet, workout change eating habits. But I'm wondering is it the Genvoya. Is anyone else experiencing this?
Anyone experience dental issues, such as cavities, loss of, or soft enamel and/or gum erosion as an adverse effect of their HIV meds, Atripla, specifically? I've been taking Atripla since it became available, 10+ yrs ago, and I'm having these dental issues, despite taking care of my teeth. My dentist thinks it's from the meds causing dry mouth, so that bacteria thrives in the mouth, softening enamel at the gumline, creating a good environment for cavities to form.
My cousin has been HIV positive for several years and the dentist had to pull all of his teeth and he has dentures as a result of meds. I’m not exactly sure what he takes. Blessings!

Hello may I just ask about this:
Me and my boyfriend had an multiple unprotected intercourse.WE ARE BOTH NEGATIVE FOR HIV and OTHER STD AND STI.
Our first time was he was rubbing his genital in my anus
The second was only his gentitals head was in my anus but it was inside for less than 10 secs and he didnt came inside me
We had no other sex history with others
Can we still have or get hiv and other std sti when we had two times intercourse BUT WE ARE NEGATIVE FOR HIV AND OTHER STD AND STI
@A myHIVteam Member if both of your test were negative, then reread my last post.
I was recently diagnosed with osteoporosis. It's extremely rare for young guys like me to get this especially since my health is otherwise perfect except for being HIV+.
Have you ever read the pamphlet on your medications?
Some medications you can just take them without food.
Other medications you have to take them with food.
for the medications that you have to take with food do you know what kind of food you have to eat to make that drug work at its maximum?
Did you know that some HIV medications work better when you eat fatty foods?
It's important to read those pamphlets that come with the medications then you know how to actually take your medications.
