help me please

Apr 5, 2008

Hi Dr Bob, Doctor I want to make a confession to you. I am having unprotected sex with my girlfriend that did not know she sleeps around with other people. I meet her like a month now. I being feeling sick coughing and wake recently My Question is Do you think I need HIV Test.

Thank and I need website for donation.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Unprotected sex places you at risk for STDs, including HIV. Consequently yes, I would recommend a rapid HIV test three months after your last possible exposure. In addition you should always, always, always use latex condoms. Not only will they prevent future episodes of panic and worry; but they will also effectively protect you from many STDs as well as unwanted pregnancy.

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

Good luck.

Dr. Bob
