mouth ulcers and reasons

Aug 27, 2006

Dr. Bob

One more concern that I have had lately is recurring mouth ulcers on the inside of my lips and on tongue. Could stress cause these by chance?

My oraquick at 8-10 weeks after unprotected cunnilingus with stripper was negative.

I am leveling with my girlfriend just so you know and appreciate your encouragement with that; Counceling for both of us will be in order.

I will be donating to your foundation shortly as soon as I get my feet on the ground with my new job as I beleive this is a most worthy cause.

Sincerely, Fellow Italian Stallion

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Fellow Italian Stallion,

I'm very pleased you leveled with your girlfriend and that you'll be getting counseling. Honesty always strengthens a relationship.

Can stress trigger mouth ulcers? Yep!

Congrats on your negative OraQuick so far. Remember, however, that tests taken prior to three months are not considered definitive.

Thanks for your willingness to make a donation to help others in desperate need. In return I'm sending my good-luck karma that your definitive HIV test remains negative, as I strongly suspect it will.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
