Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello 23-Year-Old First-Timer,

Assuming the latex condom was used properly and did not break; your HIV-acquisition risk is essentially nonexistent. French kissing, even with chapped lips and a mouth ulcer, is not considered to be a significant HIV-transmission risk. Your subsequent symptoms are not suggestive of or worrisome for HIV acute retroviral syndrome (ARS). If you continue to be concerned, get a single rapid HIV test at the three-month mark to put your unwarranted HIV fears permanently to rest. The results of the test will undoubtedly be negative.

Donation information for the Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation can be found on the foundation's Web site at Thanks for your pledge. In return I'm sending you my good-luck karma that your definitive HIV tests are negative. (I'm very confident they will be.)

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
