marrige postponed $201donation

Jun 10, 2008

hello dr bob i had a sex with prositute and condom break and i ejaculate in side her i am going to get married next month should i postponed marrige if yes its ok but if you say no and makes me happy i will donate $201 immiedieately to your foundation and tell me the chances getting infected just by one exposure.

Response from Dr. Frascino


The HIV-acquisition risk per episode of unprotected (or broken-condom) insertive penile-vaginal sex with a partner confirmed to be HIV positive is estimated to be 5 per 10,000 episodes. Your estimated risk would be even less, as we do not know the status of your prostitute.

I see no reason to postpone your wedding plans. What I would advise is that you level with your fiancée and that you use latex condoms for penetrative sex until you get your definitive three-month HIV test results back.

Thanks for your donation to the Robert James Frascino AIDS Foundation (

Good luck. Congratulations on your upcoming marriage!

Dr. Bob
