safe sex safe?

Apr 5, 2007

Dr. Bob, Thank you so much for answering my questions(anxious 1st timer). I am wondering about sex with a monogogamous partner in the near future. Should I wait until 3 months WHEN I get tested until we have sex or do you think condoms would be sufficient protection since you felt my risk was almost nonexistant. I have recently met someone I really like but do not want to put her at risk. Thanks again and my donation is on the way and hopefully 2.5 months I'll be woohooing and sending another one. Thanks Still a little Anxious

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Anxious First Timer,

Welcome back to the forum. Considering your "almost nonexistent" risk, yes, I would consider properly used latex condoms "sufficient protection."

Thanks for your donation (

Stay safe. Stay well.

Dr. Bob

To start the medications or later
steroids and hiv testing
