Viral load and infectivity
An Observation by the Editor / Translator to the reader and reviewers
I, who I am with 55 years (2019) I learned, around the 12 years the concept "Venereal disease".
The first one I had was classified as "ruin duin" (written this way) and it was syphilis!
Some people nowadays, if they hear "cock crow" will not have the slightest idea that it is an HPV infection
Then came the Sexually Transmitted Disease.
That lasted a while, a long time from hell until, for a couple of years, the Ideological Patrol created the euphemism "Sexually Transmitted Infections."
And I always wonder about that annoying little disease, the annoying!
Will they say "sexually transmitted infestation"? That would be a mistake.
The boring boring (laughs) is that it can get into our lives even by bad-cleaned bedding!
But it is also known as "pubic pediculosis". And the hyphen, well, I do not know! What I remember is to have read, somewhere, in a very distant time, that annoying (the parasite) is an STD! (!!!). I think, in writing, that it is much better to make myself understood, than to write in a "do not disturb" way!
Because the real nuisance is the proliferation of the thing itself!
Undetectable viral load:
The goal of HIV treatment is to undetectable viral load. An undetectable viral load means that your blood has an HIV level below the level that can be measured by viral load tests. This does not mean that you have been cured of HIV but that the combination of drugs you are taking has reduced the ability of HIV to reproduce itself so much that it can only be detected at very low levels in the blood.
HIV treatment also reduces the amount of virus in other body fluids, including semen and vaginal fluids.
Large research studies in recent years have shown that the risk of HIV transmission is greatly reduced when people are taking HIV treatment and have an undetectable viral load. (This is sometimes called "HIV treatment as prevention," or TasP "Treatment as Prevention.) Doctors now recommend that, under the right circumstances, HIV treatment is as effective in HIV prevention as when condoms are used properly.
In these circumstances,
- neither you nor your partner have any sexually transmitted infections (both need to have sexual health exams),
- has had an undetectable viral load for more than six months and is taking their HIV treatment as recommended by their doctor. health team
- you have your viral load tested regularly.
HIV infection! One day, I discovered mine! And since then I know: There's no easy way to figure this out and it's not at all easy to explain to someone that you have HIV infection! Soon they will say: You have AIDS!
That's where the shit starts to stink!
If this is the case for you and your partner, being on HIV treatment can be an effective way to prevent HIV transmission.
If you and your partner want to stop using condoms, it is important to discuss the level of safety with which you are comfortable before you stop using condoms.
Seek to Know What It Is to Be and Be Undetectable - It May Be Necessary to Be Didactic or Didactic! Seems Risible !? Yes I know! But it is not!
Did you, as a teenager, need to teach someone even less experienced to kiss? Yeah….
It may be necessary to explain or discuss what an undetectable viral load means with seronegative partners. You may need some time to clearly understand the situation before making a decision.
please note that HIV treatment does not reduce the risk of transmission of other sexually transmitted infections (STIs). Condoms continue to be the most effective way to prevent most other STIs.
When you first meet a new partner, it is usually impossible to know if the other person has an STI or not (there may be no symptoms).
The only reliable way to know if you or your partner has an STI is to have you take a complete sexual health exam. If any of you have ever had sex with a third person since the checkup, this needs to be repeated.
If you are not yet taking HIV treatment for your own health but decide that you would like to start treatment to reduce the risk of transmitting HIV to partners, talk to your HIV doctor. They should respect that decision and prescribe treatment for HIV. If they question your need for treatment, explain that you want to protect your partners from HIV.
You can find out more on HIV treatment as prevention on the NAM website, including research studies showing its effectiveness and more detailed advice to help you make any decision.
Keep in mind that if the information offered is not correct enough, this love may become suspicious!
PEP - Condom Overflow - Rape - Casual Sexual Relationship Unprotected - Doubt Regarding Partner Serology - Other Ambiguous Circumstances Are Medical Emergencies! Your Term: 72 Hours!
If someone has been exposed to HIV during sex, they can do a short course course with anti-HIV drugs to try to prevent infection.
This is called post-exposure prophylaxis, or PEP for short.
This course of medication may be prescribed for sexual health, genitourinary medicine (GUM) and HIV clinics, or for hospital accidents and out-of-hours emergencies if there is a significant risk. ,
The Brazilian Ministry of Health has guidelines and protocols that recommend the circumstances in which PEP should be used.
There must be a significant risk of HIV infection. Whether or not the risk is 'significant' will depend on the type of sex you had and other circumstances.
QWhen the HIV-positive partner is known to be receiving treatment with an undetectable viral load, PEP is not recommended.
You can assess the risk of HIV transmission using a tool on the Terrence Higgins Trust.
It is important to get and take the PEP as soon as possible after possible exposure to HIV - ideally within 24 hours, and certainly within at most 72 hours.
DISK AIDS ME INFORMES AND I TRUST PEP TAKEN CORRECTLY PREVENTS SOROCONVERSION
According to one DISK AIDS employee (0800 16 25 50), the complete and perfect follow-up of PEP leads to a hundred percent success!
The PEP is considered to be an emergency treatment. It should be free regardless of immigration status or any other discretionary aspect!
If you are being treated for HIV and you have unprotected sex with a person who is HIV negative or who you do not know.
Or if there is an accident with the condom during intercourse or sex, I do not know!
If you are tempted to offer some of your HIV antiretroviral drugs in an attempt to reduce your risk, know right away:
This is a bad idea.
Some anti-HIV drugs work better as PEP than others. And the full PEP treatment should last for a month.
MEDICINAL PRODUCT WRONG, RISK OF OBJECT
Sharing your medicines can be risky, since some of them, especially the abacavir (Ziagen), nevirapine (Viramune) and etravirine (Intelence), can cause an allergic reaction or serious side effects and these can even be fatal.
There is also a chance that the person for whom you are administering your HIV medications already have HIV and not know.
In this case, taking a few doses of your HIV drug can give HIV in your body a chance to develop resistance to these drugs.
This would limit your future treatment options in the future.
The thought that you may have exposed someone to the risk of HIV infection is troubling, I know!
I almost freaked out of despair about it one day!
Do not Leave the Cockroaches Who Shared Good Moments With You!
But if you think PEP may be appropriate, encourage your partner to seek emergency medical help.
Be kind! If you love, or sex, or fucked, choose the word, kindly take this person!
Do not leave her as you stayed one day!
Like the body that fell from the coffin into a coffin!
If it is closed, they should go to the emergency department and report this accident.
I insist, it is medical emergency and the deadline is short: 72 hours to finish and with every minute that passes, it is more difficult of the local hospital and ask for PEP. The team should contact the doctor on call for HIV.
You can read more about PEP on the NAM website. (In English and on another tab)
What comes next is the PrEP part. So, I'll tell you before!
PrEP and the thing that I, Cláudio Afonso de Souza I'm not much of a fan.
You see, I remember and well back there, around 2001 there is a whole ethical discussion on this point:
There was talk at the time about vaccine studies and the obvious ululation was said:
You can not tell a person who is participating in a vaccine efficacy study that, once inoculation has been received (and not much was said about women in those years, as we do not now speak) so they take to the streets, the inoculated ones (this has a movie title sound), behaving like the super-man, today so disused, or as, today, as Avengers or X-Men!
And I see PrEP with the same eyes.
I saw this until before yesterday! And, yesterday, Friday, 21 July 2019, I found a story in one of my sources showing that "PrEP protects up to 95% of cases in the real world" !!!
You do not have to be a genius of logic to imagine yourself, to actually see clearly, how you came to this number!
Five percent of PrEP users in a study, whose name I have not read yet, have found themselves now and now infected with HIV despite all their faith in Science and PrEP!
And now, Zé?
And These Five Percent, Dona Maria? Put in the Basket or the Basin?
Now…. Now, for these five percent, people, human beings, with feelings, aspirations, dreams, projects of life etc ....
I do not know, they unfortunately have to add the imponderable to their "calculations" because, despite PrEP, they are contaminated by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus, HIV, popularly known in Brazil as WASP / Anglo / Saxon:
Want to know what I think?
That they did a great shit with the lives of these people because, despite what is said here, there and there, I have, yes, and very well impressed in my hippocampus, ALL THESE REFERENCES OF SUFFERING AND, although for office duty, I am here, I should continue with the translation, my guidance, and I know that you who read me not asked for it is this:
But use it as an extra factor, because you will be, in case of a crash ", without PEP access!
And see: I know that in the long run, PrEP will improve and be more and more efficient! But here, face to face with the 2020 year, it is still not the eighth wonder of the world!
Pre-exposure prophylaxis (PrEP) is another way to prevent HIV infection. Seronegative people can take some doses of anti-HIV drugs when they are at risk of exposure to HIV. Recent research has shown that this is very effective in reducing the risk of infection as long as the drugs are taken regularly and exactly as prescribed. Evidence of the efficacy of PrEP is particularly strong for men who have sex with men.
However, PrEP does not protect people from other sexually transmitted infections or pregnancy.
The anti-HIV drug currently used as PrEP is Truvada, a pill containing two medicines, tenofovir and emtricitabine. Truvada was chosen because these two drugs have few side effects and are less likely to cause problems with drug resistance if you have ever been infected with HIV the moment you start taking PrEP or if you can not avoid the infection.
Women, with a Thousand Devils, Are More Vulnerable to Everything and Always Neglected
As women who use crack die three times faster! And I have a daughter, yes, a daughter, in the streets, a victim of crack. Unfortunately, because of her temper, and I do not even know who she pulled, she wants things her way. And it does not
And look, I'm translating for tomorrow, Monday, a text, a study that proved that PrEP, in the "Real World", protected 95% of its users! And my question is the one of always: And these 5%? What do you say to them now?
Please forgive us! It was for a higher good !!!!!
Grrrrrrrrr !!!!! ... ..
While there are other effective ways to prevent HIV transmission, PrEP can provide a useful option for some people at some point in their lives. For example, studies have shown that it can be a good prevention method for gay men at times when their sexual activity puts them at high risk of contracting HIV, rather than being a long-term option.
The use of PrEP to prevent HIV transmission in different situations is still being studied in the UK. PrEP has been shown to be highly effective in preventing HIV in people at high risk (such as men who have unprotected sex with other men). The availability of PrEP in the NHS is currently being debated by the government. Some clinics are offering PrEP with a particular prescription. Talk to the staff at a sexual health clinic if you think PrEP would be a good option for you.
And do not be silly, there are people who do not have HIV themselves! And yet, they make it appear that life with HIV is a walk to the square. If this were the case, the ordinary said that would have contracted HIV too, deliberately!
