|WOOHOO certification needed!!!
Jan 13, 2009
Hi Dr Bob,
86 days ago I had sex with an escort, condom broke. Had a rapid test today..result was negative!
I just need you to answer these questions and rubber stamp my woohoo so i can move on.
1) I licked my finger 5 or so minutes before my finger prick....saliva inactivates HIV...my finger was dry though, what are your views???
2) Would the 3 month test be appropriate if the girl was a prostitute...or is a 6 month test needed because it was a more significant risk?
Thanks Dr Bob, hopefully you give me the go ahead and I can WOOHOO and educate everybody else about HIV/AIDS due to what I've learned from you and this website.

1. No problem. Finger licking before finger pricking will not affect your test results.
2. Three months would be conclusive.
