|WOOHOO (I think) from Bo
Sep 30, 2002
I wrote you on August 30, 2002 and you help allay my fears. I received today my 13 week (89 days.. is that enough?) ELISA, it was negative. 13 weeks from unprotected insertive oral and 15 weeks from unprotected vaginal intercourse. Can I rule out HIV for now? At least I can relax for 3 months. You suggested testing for other STD's since I did have some symptoms, namely a burning penis, warm testicles (only lasted a few days). Still having the soft light colored stools and some frequent urination. Clinic didn't seem bothered by this, but others have suggested I get tested for all stds at my doctors office. Can I woohoo tonite with my wife?
I received your thank you for my contribution. I will send you more soon. Let me know what else I can do to help you. I was so clueless before. Now I have found my mission in life!
Response from Dr. Frascino
Yes, a major WOO-HOO is definitely warranted. HIV is out of the picture. Screening for routine STDs is a simple process. Why continue to worry? Go ahead, get screened.
