Re: Living with hiv for about 18 years without knowing!

I was diagnosed in '08 and never knew I was poz. From my counts (CD4 = 0, VL = 6M) the doctor determined I had probably be living with this for 10 years. I never exhibited any issues other than...

Re: Small Bumps on base of Shaft from Shaving

Re: Swelling on the foreskin of my penis

Sounds like you were either a little rough with your penis while masturbating or it's just irritated from the action.

Leave it alone for a day. Just like any other body part that's been "abused",...

Re: Left Hanging

As Keil's been saying, a slight curve is normal. Actually, it's quite common. An erect penis can stick straight out from the body, stand straight up pressed against the abdomen, curve to the left...

Re: Testicle hanging

One testicle tends to hang lower than the other. This is normal. Think of this as nature's way of keeping them from banging into each other!

Testicles come in all sizes and sometimes they are...

Re: Transmission of HIV through a Sandalwood block

Studies have shown that HIV is an extremely unstable and fragile virus and needs to be passed internally from person to person. The virus dies outside of the body within seconds.

Re: Why did my penis stop growing?

How excited you are can play a big part in penis length, as does weight gain (though this would be visual since the true length of the penis would be hidden by the extra weight/size of the abdomen). ...

Re: Little confused??? O.o

Re: Should I get my curve checked out?

Penises come in all shapes and sizes. Your curve is not abnormal. Keep in mind there will be nothing a doctor can do for you.

That being said, have your doctor look at it to ease your anxiety.

Re: After much masturbation now total loss of libido + small testicles

Sounds like your body is letting you know it's had enough sexual activity! It's like having too much of a good thing: after awhile, you don't want it anymore.

Re: Virus load #'s

Don't be too sure that the T4/CD4 count will go that high that quickly. The body loses those cells faster than it can rebuild them. It may take over a year to get above 200. Also note that she may...
