Would you not recommend unprotected sex with Girlfriend!!!

Nov 10, 2003


I have tried several times, but I haven't got back a reply. I can only imagine how many emails you get, but please reply back to me.

My risk was receiving a blowjob from a sex trade worker 7 weeks ago (tested negative at 4 weeks ELISA). I don't remember seeing any blood or anything and it was only for 5 minutes. I didn't also clean myself until 15 hours after the event, is that a problem? Is a another test at 13 weeks required, and can I have sex with my girlfriend (unprotected) after the 13 week test comes back negative (Thinking positively here, Dr. BOB)? I really don't want to tell my girlfriend about this incidence and I WILL NEVER do this again because I love her and plan on getting married next year. Please leave address for donation.

PS: You are doing an amazing job and GOD bless you!!!

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Worried in St. Martin,

I love that island. Are you on the Dutch or French side?

Oral sex, as you probably know from reading this forum, carries a very, very low risk of HIV transmission. I consider HIV ELISA testing to be definitive 3 months or longer after a possible exposure.

Can you have unprotected sex with your girlfriend? Well, that's totally up to you. If you test HIV-negative at 13 weeks past any possible exposure, you are HIV-negative, and consequently would not be able to pass HIV on to her. However, unprotected sex does place both partners at risk for STD's. If you had an unanticipated walk on the wild side, giving a hungry hooker a high protein nosh, how do you know for sure your girlfriend might not have also met someone for a pleasure rendezvous? Many STDs are much easier to contract than HIV. We must all realize that unprotected sex carries a potential risk.

Stay well and thank-you!
