igiv infusions and safe sex

Mar 1, 2005

I am in my late 50's, female, and heterosexual. Recently met someone and we have questionson safety of oral sex for both of us due to my infusins. Iam tested every 3 months but what do we do in between? I have Primary Immune Disease adult onset

Response from Dr. Frascino


IgIV (intravenous gammaglobulin) preparations approved by the FDA do not transmit HIV. The pathogen-safety procedures used in manufacturing IgIV eliminate HIV transmission risk.

Hope that helps calm any HIV fears related to getting the infusions.

Stay well.

Dr. Bob
