Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Ben,

You tested 10 times for a 5-second vaginal exposure? That's two tests per second in the love canal! Ben, you may admire me, but you certainly aren't listening to my advice! A single HIV test at the three-month mark is all that you needed for a definitive and conclusive result.

Are you a late seroconverter? No. No way. No how.

Your symptoms are not suggestive of or worrisome for HIV disease. I can't diagnose the cause of your symptoms over the Internet, but I can with great certainty tell you what's not causing them: it's not HIV!

Donation information for The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation can be found on the Foundation's Web site at

Stop worrying and start WOO-HOOing!

Dr. Bob
