Do I get a WHOO HOO I donated what i can

May 14, 2004

Hi Doctor Robert J.Frascino,

Do i get a Whoo-Hoo.I tested at 4 weeks Neg Elisa 7 weeks Neg Rna pcr 13 weeks Neg Rna pcr neg 14 weeks Neg Elisa hiv 1/2

Im done testing i believe.

I had oral sex with 2 guys i didnt swallow and i didnt taste any pre cum but you never know if some got through. One of the guys put his pre cum on my hard penis around the tip and i was worried after the fact it could have in penis. Not in the hole but around it. But since testing out to 14 weeks i Believe im done. Please give me your advice.Some Dr's arent up with the 13 weeks yet so your Reply would be most welcomed. I want to be done and over and return to normal life. I believe 13 weeks or more is Conclusive. I donated what i could at this time!!

Thanks Former WW

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Former WW,

Your HIV risk is extremely low from the potential exposure you describe. Your repeatedly negative ELISA and PCR-RNA tests out to 14 weeks are indeed definitive in fact, they are excessive. You could have been "done with testing" with a single ELISA test three months after your last potential exposure. The rest is just overkill. It really doesn't require a sledgehammer to kill a mosquito, when a simple tap of a fly-swatter gives the exact same result. Whether squished with a fly-swatter or annihilated with a sledgehammer, the result is the same, right? The bug is "conclusively" dead either way.

Thanks for your donation. The help it will bring to those struggling with HIV/AIDS is warmly appreciated.

WOO-HOO! And thank you!

Dr. Bob

Well, do you use the expression "snowball's chance in Hell
WOO HOO & Yabba-Dabba-Do .... Great learning experience...
