Dear Dr.Bob, I appreciate what you did and what you are doing very much. Here I just have three short questions: (1) In your career, have you ever seen the infection just through one and only one unprotected vaginal sex? (2)In your career, if there's no repeat risky exposure, have you ever seen that the window period is more than 10 months? (3) If a patient has had only one unprotected risky exposure but she/he had 10 months negative testing results, could we convince him that she/he get married and have babies?
Response from Dr. Frascino
Three short questions. Three short answers:
3. With a negative FDA-approved HIV antibody test 10 months after a single unprotected risky exposure, you could definitively and conclusively state the person is HIV negative. However, as for convincing him or her to get married and have babies, that's an entirely different subject I'm not qualified to address. You see, I'm gay and Dubya and his cronies don't believe I should ever get married. Similarly, they don't want me to adopt kids either.
Is it 2008 yet? "Jan 20, 2009 End of an Error"
