One time Oral but hmm

Jul 20, 2006

Hello Dr,

Amazing ppl take the time to help others out of their own and the others are amazing!!

I have a 1 yr old child and cant sleep thinking I wont see her turn 15 now. Scared crapless (word?) anyhow, to make a story short, Im a married heterosexual male who went to a movie booth and ended up bjing a man out of curiosity. He didnt ejaculate and everytime i felt a little gagging I reset back to the front. Was about maybe 5-7 min total.

1.5 weeks later I started with: sore throat (lasted 1 week all others still have now 4.5 wks later), swollen glands (still have them although not visible nor touchable but I can feel when i swallow), naseous when i eat for like 30 min, gassy and slight pull pain side of chest down to nipple as a bruise.

Took a swab test at 3.5 wks so far negative. Guess after reading online it scares me more even this site (the studies) specially with swollen painless glands lasting.

Q1: Sound like ARS so far?

Q2: how long would ARS last including swollen throat feeling?

Q3: does the 3.5 test give any probability?

Q4: read about donating to help this totally unfair to donate online?

Response from Dr. Frascino


1. Nope.

2. Usually a couple of weeks max.

3. It's encouraging, but not definitive or conclusive. You'll need a three-month test for that!

4. Donation information for The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation can be found on the foundation's Web site at Just click on the donate tab!

Thanks for your kind comments and desire to help others battle "this totally unfair disease!"

Your HIV risk, oral sex, carries only a minimal risk for HIV transmission. A quick read through the archives should give you reassurance and encouragement, not only about oral sex's minimal risk, but also about your "symptoms."

Good luck!

Dr. Bob
