MD exposed

Aug 25, 2006

Dr F. That time again. My exposure was March 21. I took 28 of triple prophilaxis. At week 5 got symptomatic. In the clinic they ran Elisa and a viral load both NEG. Then again at 6, 9 12 weeks the antibodies were negative. At 18 weeks I used a Home Access kit, that I was told renders the same results as a clinic exam and was also negative. How do my odds look now ?.


Very anxious.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Extremely positive, in the best sense of that word!

Good luck. You'll need a final confirmatory test at the six-month mark, but I'd say you can make the down payment on your WOO-HOO party without worrying you'll lose your deposit. OK?

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
