hi, if i masturbate before doing an hiv test, can it produce false result?

Response from Dr. Frascino


You want to jack off on your way to get HIV tested? Damn, you must be one horned-up dude. "Burping the nephew" will not affect HIV test results, but do try to finish up before getting to the waiting room, OK? The other clients might be put off by such behavior.
