Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello,

You may feel the "evedenice" in your case suggests you contracted HIV from an unprotected blowjob. However, I do not! Once again I'll remind you that symptoms are notoriously unreliable in predicting who is and is not HIV infected. I see no reason you should be searching for information about the best medications for HIV when the odds are astronomically in your favor that you did not contract HIV from your oral sexperience.

If you are concerned about HIV, your next step is to get an HIV test three months or more after your last potential exposure. (If you want to wait for the six-month mark, that's totally up to you.) I'm willing to bet your definitive HIV test will be negative. So for now, let's hold off on the discussion of what medications to consider, OK?

Donation information for The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation can be found on the Foundation's Web site at www.concertedeffort.org. Thanks for your desire to help others in need. In return I'm sending you my best good-luck/good-health karma that your definitive HIV test will be negative.

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
