Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Kaycie,

I can only respond to a small percentage of the thousands of questions that cram their way into my inbox on a continuous basis. I have no idea if you are chopped liver, filet mignon or a Fluffernutter. My assessment of your situation is exactly the same as that of gazillions of other I've already responded to. Check the archives! Needing my approval to move on is ridiculous, as my responses are remarkably consistent.

To briefly reiterate:

1. Your decisions to have unprotected were unwise lapses in judgment that put you at risk for STDs, including HIV.

2. A negative FDA-approved anti-HIV antibody test at the three-month mark is considered definitive and conclusive.

3. Play safe to stay safe and to stay well.

Thanks for your "promise to donate," but please note that donations to The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation ( should only be made in the spirit of generosity and compassion and out of a desire to help those in desperate need. Donations should not be used as a method to try to influence me to respond to a question. My advice here is free and available to all. You now have your response with absolutely no strings attached, OK?
