What am I doing to myself???

Aug 11, 2003


I was just wondering if it is at all possible to seroconverse just days (2-2.5) after a sexual encounter? Or do you think that I'm just stressed and mentally telling myself that I have these symptoms?

Thank you Doctor JC R.

Response from Dr. Horwath

No, this is not possible. More importantly, if you're having sexual encounters, you should be practicing safe sex by using condoms and other protective barriers. This is the best available protection against seroconversion and anxiety about seroconversion.
