Response from Dr. Frascino


Time to ratchet down those anxiety levels!!!

You risk, oral sex, carries only a minimal risk for HIV transmission.

Your negative HIV tests, including viral loads, at 2, 3, 4, 6, 8 and 11 weeks are definitive, conclusive, extremely excessive and, for the most part, unwarranted. I can't imagine how or why any physician would have ordered so many unnecessary, expensive and completely unjustified tests!?!

Your 11-month positive NASBA on semen, no less is a false positive. It was bound to happen. If you continue to run unnecessary, unjustified medical tests, eventually you will get a result that you don't understand.

I have absolutely no doubts that you are HIV negative! However, you may well need some psychological help in order to accept this fact. My advice is simple: stop testing; get counseling.

Good luck.
