I don't know if you would pay attention to this but I hope you read and reply to a few questions that I have.

I am an entertainer in another country before I got married and have kids. Everytime I use a condom but I had a foreigner bf there and that was the first time that we never used protection. Since then I got scared that he might be infected and I got infected too. But I don't have the guts to take the test because I'll be embarrassed if ever it turns out positive. I am not feeling anything but based on what I have been reading, there are sometimes no symptoms when one is infected.

Pozzie I don't know what to do. I may have infected my wife and my kids just in case I am positive.

Please advise me on what to do, how and where to take the test where I won't be judged.

POZZIEPINOY’S RESPONSE

Hi can23.

Thank you for your email. Thank you for sharing your experience with us.

Let me tell you straight forward. Take the HIV Test. If you love yourself, take the test. If you love your wife and kids, take the test!

It is not enough now to worry but what is important is that you need to be proactive about your health and the health of your family. You said you have may have been exposed so there's no other way but to take the HIV test. You are right, some people don't have illnesses and yet they have HIV so don't think anymore and just do it. 

You can go to RITM Satellite Clinic in Malate and just look for Nurse Nicka or Nurse Trisha. Tell them that Pozziepinoy referred you. They are all friendly, accommodating, professional and non judgmental. Plus you can get the result in just 2 hours. Click the link below to know the map, address and directions to the clinic.


I hope I was able to answer your concerns. Feel free to email me again if you have other questions.


Stay healthy,
Pozziepinoy
