Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello,

"Scientific quidence to crores of people???" OK, if you say so.

Masturbation, even with a small cut on your "pennis" is not considered a significant risk for HIV transmission. If you remain concerned, then get HIV tested at three months. Symptoms (even pains in the "groien") are notoriously unreliable. I don't believe your "immense tensiuon" is at all warranted.

Good luck. Thanks for your donation!

Dr. Bob
