Hi Dr.Bob I know you have answered this question before but I need a little reasurement. I had unprotected vaginal sex (I am the guy) at the end of July. Had 2 DNA PCR test one at 29 days and at 11 weeks, both negative. Oraquick Advanced (finger pick) at six and 13 weeks both negative. Also two HIV 1/O/2 BY ICMA, one at 13 weeks and at 16 weeks,negative. Is this ICMA reliable ? Test was done by Labcorp. Do I need more testing? Dr. thank you for your help and the beautiful work you are doing.

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello Bo Wong,

Absolutely! Prevention efforts that provide condoms and educational programs that teach proper condom use have been shown to dramatically decrease STDs, including HIV, in both developed and developing countries.
