Health : Being POZ And Finding Love

Catégorie: Gay Stuff : Health : Speak Out

I receive emails every week from members saying that they are having a hard time finding love because they are HIV positive. I am sure it is more complicated than for negative guys, but it is possible. Even around me I have a friend who is negative who dates a positive man. Why? Simply because he loves his partner and couldn’t care less about whether he is poz or neg.

It is true that many guys out there don’t know much about HIV transmission and how low the risks are when someone is on medication so they will categorically exclude positive men from being potential partners. I also think that many positive men exclude themselves by fear of being rejected. Some of you guys are in a serodiscordant relationship, you might be poz and your partner is neg or vice versa…so YES love is possible.

In the comment section below, I would like to hear you guys about this subject. Maybe give poz guys some tips on how to reveal their status to a partner or how to approach someone who is neg on A4A, or maybe encourage negative guys to look further than the status of a person or even share your own story. I think that this can be very helpful for everyone!

There’s a great article on POZ.com about serodiscordant couples sharing their experience, check it out :)

Have a great day guys!

Health: Truvada As Pre Exposure Prophylaxis…Yay or Nay?

I have reached a point in my life where I feel it necessary to take into account my current health situation and being a young gay man, I have found recent articles on the use of Truvada as a PrEP drug to educate the masses on continuing safe sex practices in the gay community. I have researched the drug, all the side effects and also all the benefits of taking the therapy on a daily regiment basis. In accordance to many publications, I have found myself more and more inclined to get a referral script and begin my therapy as a PrEP patient and protect my health both now and for the future. However, it has come to my attention that the usage of Truvada as a PrEP therapy raises some eyebrows in the more conservative and older generations. Case in point: I still have insurance through my mom. I raised this question in earnest as a possibility to better myself and protect myself. However, upon bringing this up, I was met with a barrage of comments such as “people should just not sleep around and not be safe” and “I raised you better, and this sounds like you just want to go out and have unsafe sex!” This not only disheartened me, but baffled me.

Health : Living With Herpes

“Hi.  I have HSV2 in my system.  Yes, Herpes.  I’m in my 50s and had it since my early 20s.  During college I had an outbreak every 10 weeks, during finals.  Now, outbreaks are very infrequent, only when I’m really stressed about something.  No outbreaks for several years.  Now, I’m getting an outbreak maybe once or twice max a year.  I honestly doubt I’ve spread it.  I’m told it can be spread even though there are no lesions.  My doctor says there is a risk when you feel an outbreak coming or just when after an outbreak heals.  The Valacyclovir doesn’t work during onset, which is when you are to start taking it.

Health : Spirulina – Power Plant

Catégorie: Health

spirulina

Imagine a plant that can nourish your body by providing most of the protein you need to live, help prevent the annoying sniffling and sneezing of allergies, reinforce your immune system, help you control high blood pressure and cholesterol, and help protect you from cancer. Does such a “super food” exist?

Yes. It’s called spirulina.

Unlike plants you may grow in your garden, this “miracle” plant is a form of blue-green algae that springs from warm, fresh water bodies. Spirulina is a simple, one-celled organism that got its name from the Latin word for ‘helix’ or ‘spiral’ because of its spring-like physical characteristic. Its scientific name is Arthrospira platensis, and it belongs to the cyanobacteria family.

Health : Britain Hunks Naked For National AIDS Trust

Catégorie: Health

British people surely know how to raise funds….

Every year, Gay Times, the oldest LGBT magazine, put together its NAKED issue. This year, GT features some of the hottest UK guys, naked showing their best assets. What is nice about this edition is that the proceeds from the magazine and the related online image downloads go to Britain’s National AIDS Trust.

This year’s edition features 36 men, including reality stars such as Christopher Maloney from The X Factor, Robin Windsor from Strictly Come Dancing, Dan Neal from Big Brother 2013 as well as singer Jake Quickenden.

Get your copy of the magazine, it’s for a good cause.
