Jul 13, 2007
I wrote to you 3 times about my deep kissing adventure and all my negative (qualitative pcr (10 weeks), combo (14 weeks), quantitative pcr (14 weeks), ELISA (15 weeks), I am really need your help. Where to go! Further HIV tests or find other reasons for my neuropathy and loss of weight.
Response from Dr. Frascino
You may have written to me three times about your deep-kissing adventure worries and your excessive and unwarranted HIV tests out to 15 weeks; however, I have written over 300 times in the archives:
1. "A kiss is just a kiss" (unless there are extenuating circumstances).
2. I don't recommend PEP testing for routine HIV screening.
3. A negative ELISA three months or more after such minimal exposures is definitive and conclusive.
Consequently, you should stop sending this question, stop HIV testing and start searching for other causes for your symptoms.
