Definitive ?

Jan 25, 2005

Hello Dr. Bob

I'm writing to you again. Sorry but i have no answer ...

My last sexual relation has in 10th October 2004 with a prostitute. Safe Vaginal Sex, but she masturbate me and spitt in my penis without condom. On the 13th January 2005, (93 days after), i took an antibody test, (i think Elisa, correct me if i'm wrong). The result: negative both HIV-1 and HIV-2. This is a definitive result or i have to repeat the test in abouth 3 mounths ? In the middle of November i took antibiotic to my renal colic, and 3 days before the hiv test i stopped an anti-inflamatory that my dentist gave to me. The antibiotic and the anti-inflamatory affect the result of the test ? Please doctor, tell me if i can rest with the result, because i'm scared... No sexual relations of any kind before the 10th October.

Thanks and stay well doc.

Response from Dr. Frascino


She "spit in my penis??" hmmm . . . that wasn't very nice now, was it? Relax, guy. A negative ELISA out to 93 days following "safe vaginal sex" and a spit handjob is definitive. Neither your antibiotics nor your anti-inflammatory dental medication would affect the results, OK?

Stay safe. Stay well. Stop worrying.
