|how can this be....
Nov 1, 2002
hi dr. bob, i just want to let you know that even having SAFE sex(with a condom) is still not safe. I was sick three weeks after my so calles "low-risk" exposure, then i developed all kinds of symptoms: hypopigmentation of my arms, dermatitis on my face, and now recenly very, very dry mouth, eyes and throat when i wake up. i get my results this friday, but i already know i'm screwed. i must be the most unluckiest person ever. i don't know how i am able going to cope with this....
Response from Dr. Frascino
I'll have to disagree. Safer sex with proper use of a latex condom is indeed quite safe. Your symptoms are not suggestive of an acute seroconversion reaction. I strongly doubt you are "screwed," and I'm willing to bet that when Friday comes, you'll be WOO-HOOing and whistling an entirely different tune! So write back and let me know if my predictions turn out to be true or not! Good luck.
Thanks D.BoB please answer
Need a WOO HOO !!!!
