Please Please Please help or I'll steal your boyfriend!

Sep 29, 2008

Just kidding!!I got an HIV test after 6 weeks of unprotected vaginal intercourse and again at 3 months. I will be going back at 6 months. For about a week now I have had a headache that won't go away and I have had blood in my sputum every morning and cramping stomach pains. Does this sound like HIV? Please help, I am panicking terribly!!

Response from Dr. Frascino


Does it sound like HIV? No, it sounds like you should be seeing your general medical doctor for a checkup. There are a variety of medical conditions that produce bloody sputum and abdominal cramping. You need to be evaluated for these without delay.

As for your HIV status, I would consider your negative three-month test to be definitive and conclusive. If you want to get a six-month test, fine. The results will undoubtedly be negative.

As for stealing my boyfriend, not a chance. He doesn't go for the panicky types.

Dr. Bob

Test, Woo Hoo, But...
