Hi in 2008 tested positive and I started to take arvs in 2018 and my partner doesn't want to test and we are not using protection but since from then my viral laod is undetectable so I don't know if it was a false alarm or what

Hello,

Your partner needs to get tested. It's very important. In the meantime, please use condoms when having sex.

What do you do if you get raped??

B-Wise Expert Expert 27 May 2020 16:04

Hi There, 


  • You need to get medical help as soon as you can. If possible, you should go to the hospital, medico-legal clinic or Thuthuzela Care Centres (TCCs) within 72 hours (3 days) of the rape.
  • You will be provided with medication if necessary, to help to prevent you from being infected with HIV. This medication is called PEP, which stands for 'post-exposure prophylaxis'. You will have to take these pills every day for 28 days.
  • You will be given medication to prevent you from falling pregnant. Both of these medicines are free in public hospitals and clinics.
  • The doctor or nurse will also ask you questions about what happened. Try to be as honest as you can. It's okay if you don't remember. They will do some tests to get evidence for the police find your rapist but this does not mean you have to open a case at the police station.
  • Do not shower or wash after the rape and take any clothes you were wearing so they can find evidence they need.


Remember, you do not need to open a case to get medical care after a rape.

You can still take TLD in the evening, as long as they are consistent with the time

Hi Doc... Is TLD a replacemnt for ARV'S? And if not who gets them? I mean... Is it someone with a high or lesser Viral load? Who is eligible to receiving them?

B-Wise Expert Expert 17 April 2020 17:06

Hi there,

TLD is a type of ARV so it is not a replacement. All people living with HIV is eligible to receive TLD and it doesn't matter what your viral load is.

Im confused im hiv positive but when my partner go testing he's negetive hows that possible

B-Wise Expert Expert 30 March 2020 12:19

Hi Hlengiwe, 


It s possible that your partner has not been infected with the virus, continues having sex with condoms and also your partner needs to take prep to prevent getting infected. Learn more about Prep on www.myprep.co.za

My mam takes ARVS but she does not want to take them every day what can I do?

B-Wise Expert Expert 26 March 2020 12:04

Hello, 


Your mum needs to take her pills everyday, You can set reminders for her so she doesn't forget, for example you can put them next to her toothbrush so everytime she brushes her teeth she takes them, or set a time when you know you are home to remind her, good luck 



B-Wise User Anonymous 14 March 2020 21:22

Hi I have been on ART for 3 years, a year ago my viral load increased and it hasn't been suppressed since but its increasing slowly even though I take my treatment religiously on time. To cut matters short the cause of this was found and now I'm about to change my first line regimen to the second one. My question is will I change to this new TLD treatment or the one that was there before? Is this pill also taken once a day at the same time everyday? Thanks

B-Wise Expert Expert 7 April 2020 13:11

Hi there,

In SA now TLD is our first regimen not second regimen.

https://cb15a1b8492430fe8e04-a59f2f1911e4f2e1c53db1832af0541d.ssl.cf3.rackcdn.com/30a81946-1765-11ea-acb6-492ffd3fe8e4_TLD%20Z-fold-%20Updated%20.pdf) 

You will need to be properly assessed and the healthcare worker will choose a personalized regimen choice for you, it is not general. The regimen depends on which drugs were you exposed to and your clinical picture.

So your health care worker will explain the times for the treatment with you.
