Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Amit,

I have no idea if the sex worker you "encountered" was HIV positive or not, so I have no way of knowing if you were exposed to HIV or not. If she was poz, your risk of HIV transmission would be very low unprotected oral, deep kissing and protected vaginal. If you feel you have placed yourself at risk for STDs, including HIV, the option to get HIV tested is always open to you. Wait for at least three months for a definitive HIV test. Other STD screening can be done sooner. I would suggest you level with your wife about your encounter and your fears. I believe honesty is the best way to confront guilt and worry.
