Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello,

I don't think anyone should be WOO-HOOing if they have a drippy "thing." As to whether you have HIV, I have absolutely no idea, because you did not advise me of any potential HIV risks. Certainly the only way to determine if you truly have acquired HIV or not is to get an HIV test outside the window period. And the only reason to get an HIV test is if you've placed yourself at risk for potentially acquiring the virus. Symptoms or no symptoms are not the reason to get HIV tested! Placing yourself at risk is!!

My advice is simple. If you've placed yourself at risk for HIV disease by having unprotected sex or sharing IV needles, you need an HIV test three months or longer after your last potential exposure. It really is just that simple and straightforward.

Ciao Bello. Buona fortuna!

Dr. Bob
