Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Worried,

Your HIV risk is low. Your symptoms are not worrisome for HIV. Your repeatedly negative HIV tests out to 77 days are extremely encouraging, although not conclusive, as tests taken prior to three months are not considered to be definitive.

I see absolutely no cause for concern. The odds are astronomically in your favor that you did not contract HIV.

Thanks for your donation. In return I'll send my good-luck karma that your three-month definitive test remains negative, as I very strongly suspect it will.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
