Trying to put the past behind me...

May 28, 1999

Doctor Holodniy,

Thank you for such a great service! I had one encounter with a pretty promiscuous young woman when I was 17. I don't know whether or not she is infected. I am now 25, I'm getting married soon and I want to be sure I don't pass HIV on to my wife. I was tested in February 99 at an anonymous test center. The test was negative. Is a followup test needed? I don't think I have any unusual symptoms...I get a cold or flu about once every year that lasts about a week or so, but other than that I have had no strange illnesses. Should I be concerned? Thank you for your time!!

Response from Dr. Holodniy

No followup test needed. MH
