An WOOHOO needs approval

Jan 16, 2006

Dear Dr. Bob, I tested negative 51 days (7 weeks) and 92 days (13 weeks) after receiving a handjob from an unknown status prostitute. The tests I took were ELISA Genscreen. Please tell me if I am HIV negative and I can yell WOOHOO or if I need to take a further test at 6 months ?

Please answer me this time, doc.

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Anxious Guy in Vietnam,

If a handjob is your only risk, I would have told you to WOO-HOO from the get go! No testing was even necessary, as handjobs are not considered a significant risk for HIV transmission. So can I certify you WOO-HOO-able now that you've had several negative tests out to 13 weeks following your "non-exposure?" Absofrickinlutely.


Stay well.

Dr. Bob

Still worried about pos Elisa and neg WB.
Please Please answer me.
