Please Men a yes or a no?

Mar 13, 2006

Unpertecded sex with a female for 20 sec. a PCR DNA at 30days (with I know you do not like but I could not wait)and like six test EIA and Rapid last one on the 15th week. Question Do I need to test at 24 weeks? Yes or No

I had almost all the symtoms but did not have fevor or rash.

Response from Dr. Frascino


For 20 seconds of unprotected (or even "unpertecded") sex, all you needed for a definitive result was one HIV test at the three-month mark. Your six EIA, one rapid and one PCR-DNA out to 15 weeks are excessive. You are HIV negative. No additional tests are warranted. You've had way too many already.
