I Prefer My Milk From Cows,,,, yikes

Mar 15, 2009

Dr Bob

Good morning. You have another huge fan in the Garden State.. I have donated in the past (several times) & I will continue to do so. More importantly I have begun volunteering with an Aids charity is Asbury Park NJ called The Center.(and man does it feel good)

Now to my "concern". I met a women and went back to her place. No vaginal sex, no anal sex, no oral sex, no drugs, I didnt even touch her vaginia. I thought I was safe.

Lets just say there was a little kissing & breast sucking. During the sucking act I think I tasted something weird. It could have been sweat or maybe milk. I mentioned it to the women & she said it couldnt be milk. Considering how big her breasts were she checked herself via sucking both of her own two breasts. The first time nothing came out. She did it again & then pinched the niple and a drop came out. I dont know who was more shocked me or her!!!! My question is should I be freaking out. I am not even sure I got any milk in my mouth. Anyway a page on the CDC website says even if a women who is hiv positive breast feeds an infant "one" time the liklihood the infant would be infected is very very unlikely. Please give me your advice on what to do,,,, PEP, testing, or no need to do anything?

Have a fabulous fabulous weekend.

best regards, your "east coast amigo"

Response from Dr. Frascino

Hello East Coast Amigo,

"She checked herself via sucking both of her own two breasts"???? Hmm . . . just how big were those knockers anyway?

Relax Max. Your HIV risk is nonexistent. There are no documented cases of adults acquiring HIV from breast milk. There is a risk for infants. But remember infants are tiny creatures with immature immune systems that drink enormous quantities of breast milk, especially when you consider their small size!

PEP? Nope.

Testing? Nope.

No need to do anything? Yep!

Be well. Stay well.

Dr. Bob

I dont know of any specialist who can answer my question. I should have gone to med. school myself.
