For those of you who tested positive for covid recently. When did you re-test? It’s been a week for me and I’m feeling much better. But I’m nervous to still spread it.

I think you can test positive for a pretty long time after not being contagious. Just follow the guidelines for isolating. The guidelines don’t require an negative test…just that you no longer have symptoms and it has been 10 days since symptoms started or your positive test.

My doctor advised not getting tested again for 3 months after testing positive. Apparently you can still test positive during that window even if you aren’t actually positive anymore.

New cdc guidelines, as of today, are only 5 days quarantine after symptoms or a test.

Yea I think only if you’re asymptomatic

I'm in the same boat. What I was advised by the care provider who administered the test is that you quarintine for 10. If you feel you still have symptoms extend it 4 more days. Still not better... see your doctor. Also to add when the local heath department contacted me, I asked your same question and a follow up test is not required. They also added as long as your symptoms or better and not running fever you should be clear to go back into the public on your release date. The fever is what can make it highly contagious to the next.

I didn’t retest, just followed the 10 day advice with improving symptoms and still wear a mask when I go out. Glad you’re feeling better!

I tested positive on the 17th, retested yesterday, still positive but I don’t have any symptoms now. Also nervous if I should go out now.

Take a lateral flow (rapid) test if you can get your hands on one. Since they are less sensitive, they are better at determining contagiousness. It's true that you can continue to test pcr positive while no longer contagious. Better yet, wait for 2 negative rapids before masking up and heading back into the world.

Hi all, i had an IVF procedure last week for egg retrieval. I have high AMH, they retrieved 17 follicles but then only six were matured and only two got converted to blastocyst embryo post day five. I was told my egg quality is average to poor which is why this happened and may eggs were not matured. Are there ways to improve egg quality, I have endometriosis and was on vissan until previous month. Thinking of doing on more round of IVF egg retrieval before placement since I am already 33.

Tummy flattening - so I been working out for over 8 months mostly lifting. Went from 215 to 190 lbs with increased lean muscle mass and fat down from 21 to 11 %.

I have seen definition at 12.5% when I was in calorie deficit. Now I am lower and seem to have lost it. Why might that be outside holiday drinking?
