expert opinion

Oct 23, 2000

Mr. kull,

I've read that many experts don't think that receiving oral sex from someone warrants an HIV test, as long as that was the only risk factor. My doctor agreed with that and even said that he probably wouldn't recommend a test even if I knew the person HIV+, because the risk is so low. I was wondering what your opinion is on that.

thank you

Response from Mr. Kull

I completely agree with the experts and with your doctor on all counts.


thanks so much!!
