16 months ago i had a condom brake for about 20 seconds, after 16 months i finally went to get a test and ive been doing some reading aboutt the use of corticosteriods and production of antibodies. is my 1 test at 16 months %100 with taking 10mg zrytec and 2 shots of albuteral a day for asthma? please answer , ive abstained from sex for 16 months and bably need some booty, can i move on?

Response from Dr. Frascino


Your 16-month negative test is definitive and conclusive. Zyrtec (antihistamine) and albuterol (bronchodilator) will not affect the validity of HIV tests. Neither drug is a corticosteroid, by the way.

So you "bably need some booty." Hmmm . . . "bably?????"

Regarding your condom break, don't forget to check the expiration date on your magnum extra larges (after all, it's been 16 months!) and remember, lubrication is your friend, OK?

Happy Horned-Up Holidays.
