Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Pakistan Fan,

Your negative HIV tests at 6, 8, 9, 11 and 13 weeks are definitive and conclusive. HIV is not your problem. No way. No how.

Your temperature elevation is not significant or worrisome. And one thing that is absolutely for certain: it's not caused by HIV. OK?

Responding to your specific questions:

1. Chances you have HIV? Nonexistent!

2. Do you need more tests? Nope!

Your problem is anxiety, not HIV. Continue with your anti-anxiety treatment. Stop worrying about HIV.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
