Response from Dr. McGowan

You ahve to stop living in fear. There is nothing you have described that would put you at risk for HIV. You cannot be obsessed with fear. When you have found a partner, get yourselves tested for HIV and practice safe sex using a condom. You will not have to worry about getting HIV if you take these steps. Best, Joe
