Donated, desperately need advice...

Jun 10, 2008

Dr Frascino, i desperately need your advice as i am goin nuts. I had vaginal fluids of a sex worker whom i fingered and massaged her breast with it. then i kissed her breast forgettin i had an ulcer on my lips. after 2 weeks, i have slight cough, flu, headache, fatigue and probably weigh loss. Am i infected, i know i have to wait for a while to go for the tests, but i would like to know the possibilities..... Please give me some advice.

Response from Dr. Frascino


Relax Max! Your HIV-acquisition risk is so remote it's essentially nonexistent. If you're worried, and clearly you are, get a single rapid HIV test at the three-month mark. I'm quite confident the test result will be negative and you'll soon be yelling WOO-HOO while doing cartwheels down Main Street, OK?

Good luck!

Dr. Bob

Here you go-the sailorboy
6 vs 12 weeks... and why?
