Response from Dr. Frascino

Hi Francisco from L.A.,

Welcome back to the forum. You're becoming a real regular around here!

Regarding your question, no, there is no relationship between EBV exposure and HIV test results. Your six-month negative HIV test is definitive and conclusive. HIV is not your problem, even if you have EBV. Also, if I understand your question properly, being exposed to EBV does not necessarily mean you were exposed to HIV, and it certainly does not mean you are infected with HIV.

Do you need additional HIV tests? No, absolutely not. What you do need is to stop worrying about a disease you don't have!

Thank you for your offer to make a donation to The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation. You can make donations online via credit card at the Foundation's Web site at Just click the "Donate" tab. Alternatively you could send a donation to our office at:

Stay well, Francisco! Stop worrying! Remember HIV is not your problem!

Dr. Bob
