Sep 24, 2004
dr robert i come from india and since there is high prevelance of hiv/aids in our country i just wanted to ask is there something called as "safe sex" with prostitues i wouldnt be worried in usual circumstances,but after my fathers death has i worry alot,fear has gripped over dunno why i fear about small things which i didnt when he was alive? i mean i can understand safe sex with a friend,a unknown person but with a prostitute?? i had 2 such experiences after which i worried that i had hiv,infact i used CONDOMS on both ocassions(the penis head was covered and my spunk collected in the saggy bag) so i guess there should'nt be any doubts in my mind but still they persist! you and dr.steve are an example for people who doubt condoms(since you being positive and steve being negative) but still?? does my exposure demand hiv testing dr.bob? i am marrying in about 2 months from now!
you are AWESOME!
ps:when are you coming to india?
Response from Dr. Frascino
"Safer Sex" applies to everyone from prostitutes to nuns! If you used a latex condom properly and it did not break, your risk of HIV would be essentially nonexistent. HIV cannot pass through intact latex; however, if you remain worried, get tested. It may be the most efficient way to put an end to those persistent doubts.
Congratulations on your upcoming wedding! I don't have any imminent travel plans to visit India, but I'm sure I'll get there one of these fine days!
