Hepatitis B Vaccine and Hiv Antibodies. Donated $50.

Oct 31, 2007

Doc Bob, One single question: Does hepatitis b vaccine, 1 day after the encounter, delay the occurance of hiv antibodies? My 3 months test result was negative after insertive anal sex. No symptoms, but injected hepatitis b vaccine two times. 3 months reliable or not? Thanks

Response from Dr. Frascino


A hepatitis B vaccine given one day after a sexual escapade would not be expected to affect the result of HIV screening tests, OK?

Thanks for your tax-deductible donation to The Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation. These gifts are urgently needed and warmly appreciated.

Be well. Stay well. Congratulations on your negative test. WOO-HOO! Remember to always "suit up" before future rear assaults (or any other type of penetrative sex) to avoid ever having to go through all this worry and anxiety ever again, OK?

Dr. Bob
