HIV Test at 8 week

Aug 23, 2007

Dr Bob

Hats off for providing great service.

I have a few questions.

1. I had protected sex with a commercial sex worker, on june 22,I was totally protected, But she was breast feeding, however i did not suck or do any thing on her tits, will this be considered a risk.

2. I had a home testing kit for syphillis and HIV Testing negative for both syphillis and HIV negative at 8 week mark. is this conclusive. i ordered this test from the internet and tested myself.

3. I still feel a bit tired however after long tennis sessions, I have some little burning sensation in my legs and penis, especially after mastrubating.

Please tell me how to donate. I will be happy to be a small part of your great service.

Thanks and RegardsHIV

Response from Dr. Frascino


1. Nope.

2. Nope. Antibody tests taken prior the three-month mark are not considered to be conclusive.

3. This is a statement, not a question.

4. Donation information for The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation can be found on the foundation's Web site at

Remember, protected sex is indeed "protected," assuming the latex condom was used properly and did not fail.

Stay well.

Dr. Bob
