Really worried
Dec 18, 2000

Doc, was exposed to hiv 6 weeks ago. I'm really worried vl will be high, or cd count very low. Still not feeling well at 6 week point (experienced ars 3 days following exposure). Am awaiting 6week results. Will stress really impact results much?

Response from Dr. Dieterich

If the HIV PCR is positive, then you should seek treatment. Stress will not change the viral load appreciably. DTD

Questions.... I think I have
hepatitis with syphilis
