I came back with a posative hiv result in which my only unprotected exposure was about 3-4 years ago. My doc says that so far there is no reason to think that I wont live out my normal lifespan if i take every dose of my pills. I am really scared and dont know what to think, why do they only say 8-10 years why does my doc say the opposite. Where do you stand in this debate? Thank you for you answer.

Hello Jeff, those that say only 8-10 years are wrong. You can live a normal or near-normal lifespan if you take your medications properly.
