the truth is out there.....

Aug 26, 2001

A quick questions for that really nice, smooth chap Dr Holodniy:

why do some countries say test at 3 months and others at 6 months to be sure?

also, insertive oral sex is more or less safe right as far as hiv is concerned, but not for gonnorhea. i got gonnorhea this way, can gonnorhea carry the hiv into me during the same incident? ie can hiv infect bacteria?

Thanks, you're doing a great job.

Response from Dr. Holodniy

Don't know. Bacteria, as far as we know, cannot carry the virus. STDs are a marker however for HIV infection, because many cause genital and oral ulcer diseases which could be a transmittal portal for HIV.
