Truvada & Prep

It will be awhile before I see my ID doctor. I was just having a thought and wanted to see if anybody knew the answer because I really do not know.
If one is taking Truvada to help keep you undetectable that is great.
If one is taking Truvada as prep from getting HIV, that is great also.
I also know one's HIV strain might be different than another, so there is the chance of making a new strain.
Now my question is if you are taking Truvada to stay undetectable, wouldn't it also help to prevent a… read more

@A myHIVteam Member is absolutely correct. Being HIV positive means you have the virus. Period. Just because it is untransmittable (undetectable) does… read more

Should a doctor be able to treat children (either with PrEP, PEP, or continual care) for HIV, without a parent's consent?

Teens have a hard time talking about sex. Or maybe parents have a hard time talking to their teens about sex. It could also be a combination of both. If your child wanted to start on PrEP, or found out their sexual partner might have HIV, or maybe they just got checked out and found they were positive, what are your thoughts on your child getting medical attention without your consent?

They should, but the parent needs to sit with them. Because who doesn't want to talk about healthy and good sex with their kids. The journey of finding… read more

If you are between 18-35, what steps are you taking to ensure a long life?

I believe that because of developments in the HIV treatments have progressed immensely; that there is now a growing number of people living with HIV for over 25 years; we call ourselves "longtime survivors". It is disturbing to me to see the shift in behavior that is existent amongst the millennials (ages 18-35); granted we have come a long way since the 80's with making HIV manageable, but the virus still can cause other side effects. The… read more

Statement

There is SO much mis-information in New Mexico about HIV. That is thanks to those agencies who absolutely refused to update their presentations about 5 years ago. With PrEP, and now that they have cured simian HIV...ours is right around the corner. This has become a moot-point in many cities...New Mexico always lags 10 years behind the times. What men AND women should be leery of is those on the DL...in their screwed-up minds they think they are immune...many do and are the very ones who spread HIV!!!

Many people feel its a need to know base on disclosing your HIV status. What if your condom breaks during sex, what do you do then?

Many people feel that if they're practicing safe sex that there's no need to disclose your HIV status to someone that you're with. Say you're not undetectable and the person isn't on Prep and has a weakened immune system from other than a STI. The condom breaks during sex. What would you do?
