INFECTED RESULTS PART 2-PLEASE READ
      #26559 - 01/07/02 08:46 PM

Friends-

We are all concerned and worried....this is really bad and there in not one person who does not feel sorry for him..BUT, in the interest of learning, we need to understand how this could have happened-for everyones safety. I for one have had sex with escorts and with non-escorts..I have never had anything but protected vaginal intercourse and the occasional oral as well. I have never taken drugs and have never had/done anal anything. Until I read this gentlemans story, I felt OK that I had played it pretty safe...we all need to know if somehow there is somthing we need to know...

Help us ...

The ONLY logical explanation regarding INFECTED'S case, assuming his facts are uncompromised, refers to VIRAL LOAD. The higher someone's VIRAL LOAD, the far easier the disease is to transmit. There is an abundance of data to support this. With a HIGH VIRAL LOAD, say in the hundreds of thousands, or even the MILLION range, it takes FAR LESS virus to enter the body and thus far less fluid. Remember, even MICROSCOPIC TEAR'S, CUT'S, OPENING'S, ETC... are a huge hole for fluids containing a SUPER HIGH VIRAL LOAD. Being that he was recently schorn, there is no doubt in my mind that her(The Prostitute)VIRAL LOAD was SUPER HIGH, thus even the smallest drop of secretion on a open area, no matter how atomicly small, could have easily infected him with her SUPER HIGH VIRAL LOAD. I TRULY BELIEVE THAT WITH HIS EXPOSURE, THE RARITY OF THE LIKELYHOOD OF EXPOSURE FROM SUCH A SUCH "SMALL RISK", I CAN SAY WITH PURE CONFIDANCE THAT THIS GIRL'S VIRAL LOAD WAS STRATOSPHERIC, WHICH INTURN RESULTED IN INFECTED'S SEROCONVERSION.

This is why NO RISK is low, "LOW RISK" is a label determined by statistics and odds. I don't do odds and neither should any of you. A NEG test is 97% conclusive at 3 months/13 weeks, well MAYBE it is, but either way it's 50/50 at 6 months. You either have it or you don't...

This is a lesson to us all, to the world, PROOF! that STATISTIC'S ARE JUST THAT, WE SHOULD NEVER ASSUME FOR A MINUTE WERE SAFE BASED UPON "LOW-RISK BEHAVIOR"... I could go on forever, yet I think the point has been made.

My prayer's, love, bestwishes, and hope go out to INFECTED.
HANG IN THERE, YOUR NOT ALONE, WERE ALL HERE FOR YOU!!
